Time Out #62...Reminder...REST



Hello.  There is still time to play along in the current challenge at Time Out.  This week is a Home Sweet Home challenge, and we have this photo to inspire you.




I was inspired by the framed alphabet blocks on the left side of the photo.  It reminded me of some subway sentiment stamps I have, so I pulled out PTI Sentiment Signs and made a get well card.


The flowers decorating this card are a nod to the floral pillow in the photo.

CASology Week #208: Journey






This is my second post today.  If you are looking for my ColourQ post, please click here.

Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is Journey.


I have quite a few travel related stamp sets, and this week's cue word was the perfect opportunity for me to pull out PTI Destinations and make a card.  I stamped the airplane in red, fussy cut it, popped it up and coated it with Glossy Accents.  A simple spot of color on a CAS card can go a long way.


Now, it's your turn.  How does JOURNEY inspire you?  I hope you play along this week. Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

ColourQ #350....Just a Note



If you are looking for my CASology post, please click here.

It's time for another color challenge at ColourQ.

Isn't this dress pretty?  It made me want to pull out some flower stamps.


I stamped some flowers and the sentiment from WPlus9 Happy Wishes.  I just love the font on that sentiment.  Of course, I had to add some texture, once my stamping was done.

PTI July 2016 Blog Hop




I am playing along with the Papertrey July Blog Hop, where this photo is our inspiration.


I took my inspiration from the pillow and rug in the photo.


I'm keeping it short because I am also trying to complete all the Stamp a Faire challenges, which I am posting in my Flickr account.

CASology Week #207: Rough





This is my second post today.  If you are looking for my ColourQ post, please click here.

Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is Rough.


Do you like to rough it when you travel?  I most certainly do NOT!  But, I could not resist these really cute Petite Places camping stamps and dies from PTI.


I suppose a cute camper is better than a tent, but still not as good as The Four Seasons Hotel.

I am also linking this card up at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Create a Scene.


Now, it's your turn.  How does ROUGH inspire you?  I hope you play along this week. Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

ColourQ #351....Happy Birthday



If you are looking for my CASology post, please click here.

It's time for another color challenge at ColourQ.



We have a bold and bright color scheme for you this week.  What will you create?


I decided to make a birthday card, using some new Paper Clippings stamps and dies from PTI.  I normally use gold as an accent color, but decided to make it the star of the show on this card.



I am also linking this card up at Seize the Birthday where the toppings option is Bold and Bright.



Please head over to the ColourQ blog to see more inspiration from the Design Team.  I hope you will play along this week.

My Crafty Weekend



It's been a long time since I had a post like this--I am sharing a bunch of cards I made this weekend.


First up is this NY Skyline card that I made following the challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch #181.  I was also inspired by the skyline on the photo at Inkspirational #113.  I am going to New York with my oldest daughter in a couple of weeks, and I think this would be the perfect card for her as we start our trip.  I am also linking this card up at Simon Says  Wednesday Create a Scene.







The challenge at Less is More #285 is Repetition--so I stamped these little thread things from PTI Hanging by a Thread multiple times in some bold, bright and happy colors.  I am also entering this card at Seize the Birthday where the toppings option is 'bold and bright', CAS on Sunday #87: Sequins and AAA Cards #69: One Stash Favourite--my favorite is to add texture to my cards with an impression plate.








My little penguin card is inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #245, and I am also entering at Addicted to Stamps and More #202:  Make Your Mark and Simon Says Monday Challenge: Flora and Fauna.






The challenge of stripes at Addicted to CAS #92 got me thinking about stripes, and I had this idea to make a US flag inspired map.   Not sure exactly what I will do with this card, but it did come out pretty close to what was in my head.  I used red and white striped paper and a US shaped die, as well as a postage stamp die cut, that I cut again on the left side with the US shaped die.  The background is PTI Postmarks and the sentiment is from Destination World Map.




I followed the sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches #182 for my final card, flipping the sketch over, and using PTI Songbirds stamps and dies.
