Oh, Hello Friend - Essentials by Ellen


Hello and Happy Monday!  I know, I'm not much of a fan of Monday's either.  The weekends go so fast, don't they?  I wanted to squeeze in one more card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge:

This is the first time I've inked up the Ellen Hutson - Essentials by Ellen - Mondo Oak Leaf by Brandi Kincaid. looks like it is 30% off!

Rather than copic color that, well, Mondo leaf, I decided to stamp it on colored cardstock by Bazzill:

Butter Mints
Chocolate Malt

I used the A2 Piercing Plate with Bazzill Pale Rose cardstock.  I love the Neapolitan color palette!  

The sentiment is from the Modern Succulents set, heat embossed in white on black cardstock.

You have until 3 pm Eastern today to link up for the Freshly Made Sketches 500th challenge + 10th Anniversary!

Cozy - Pigment Craft Co


Have you seen Pigment Craft Co's latest release?  If you love Fall and Caffeine, this one is for you!

I spent most of the day, off and on, working on this card. I have such a long to-do list but I needed to dive into these goodies. I'm such a fan of Pigment Craft Co's designs.  They make it easy to layer images to get fun looks.

Today's products include:

The Cover Plate has been cut in Neenah Solar White and backed with a Bazzill Butter Mints panel.  It's the same color that the steam has been cut from.

The Cozy word has been stamped in C&9 Wheat, the same color as the latte.  The gloves are C&9 Grapefruit with the details in Marmalade.  The sweater is C&9 Grapefruit, Aqua Sky + Oceanside.  The mug is Oceanside.

I'll be back with more from this release, it is filled with such goodness, I hope you check it out.

Hello Fall - Reverse Confetti


I've been working on this card over a couple days.  I'm still trying to squeeze in crafty time either in the morning or afternoon but I haven't been too consistent.

I managed to combine a couple Reverse Confetti sets for this:
Halloween Gnomes
Pick of the Patch

The striped panel is from the Abundant Autumn 6x6.

I was inspired by the 500th Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

Brew-tiful | Catherine Pooler Designs


My friends at Catherine Pooler Designs sent me some of the September Canvo release that has a caffeinated theme!  These are awesome for card designs:

My first card shows the Coffee Ring Stencil that has been inked up on a kraft envelope.  The card features images from the Life is Brew-tiful set.  The pattern paper is from the Fall Pick-N-Mix pad.

My second card uses paper from the Potluck Party paper and images from Life is Brew-tiful and a sentiment from the September Mornings stamp set.

I love that my friends at Catherine Pooler Designs love coffee as much as I do, check out this new product in their shop:

Oh Hello | Concord & 9th


I'm so behind on challenges and inking up products.  I'm a challenge junkie, it's what gets me inspired so here's a project using the Concord & 9th Flower Shaker Shapes Stamps + coordinating die:

I'm slowly collecting the C&9th inks and cardstocks.  This color palette is:

Grapefruit   |   Aqua Sky   |   Dove

I adore these large images and that C&9th dies are precut, bonus!

I was inspired by the Color Hues Challenge:

So Sweet Of You | The Stamp Market


I'm keeping up with my fruity themed projects.  I picked up some of The Stamp Market's latest release including Strawberry Garden amd the Berry Basket Dies:

There are only a couple of the images in the Berry Basket that are actually adhered with foam adhesive.  The others have been just dropped in.

The sentiment has been heat embossed in Rose Gold.

So sweet of you to stop by, thank you!

Feeling Peachy | Catherine Pooler


If you've been following me for awhile you know that I can't resist fruit images.  Somehow I missed Catherine Pooler's Club Sursee's Peach Collection.

My color palette is:

Tutti Frutti

I'm a big fan of the direct to paper technique.  That's how I created the colored strips and how the word 'Peachy' was colored.

The word 'Feeling' has been heat embossed in white.

In case you haven't heard, Catherine Pooler has come out with SIDE LABELS.  YAY!!!!!  These are available in her shop, minimal cost and terrific results.

Reverse Confetti August Release + Creative Hop

Today is the day, it's the Reverse Confetti August Release Day!  We're celebrating with a hop!  The fun starts on the Reverse Confetti blog.  You should have arrived here from Rachel AlvaradoIf not, you'll want to start at the Reverse Confetti Blog so you don't miss out on any of the Fun!

Although this August Release is a mini, it certainly packs a punch:

Here's how I was inspired:

I was playing around with a Pink Lemonade color combo that teams up Flamingo and Bumblebee cardstocks.  This first card also includes the Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel.  The Hello is from the Hello Daisy Cover Panel.  I was going to add some of the daisies but decided to keep a more graphic look.

This next card has a see through top panel.  I adhered the Floral Chain Cover Panel to a base that has been trimmed down.  I used Flamingo cardstock again and added yellow enamel dots for the centers.  The sentiment is from Scripty Sentiments.

This is how it opens up:

Before you go, I wanted to share my earlier projects:

Now it's time to hop over to 'Fetti Friend Joe's project.  I'm sure he has a fabulous card to share.  In case you get lost along the way, here's the complete hop listing:
