I love any card that has to do with the beach, ocean, sea life....any nautical theme. So....the inspirational photo from Just Us Girls was perfect for me. I love the sunlight beaming through the water and tried to give that feel to my card. Stampin Up's Seaside Notions was perfect for this challenge.
Gorgeous Grunge from Stampin Up seemed like the perfect stamp set for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew challenge this week. I even used the colors called for in the sketch. #bethegift challenge:Hug someone today that would be surprised at being noticed!!
Here is another take on the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches. While spring cleaning my craft room I came across this stickers for scrapbooking...part of the Simply Scrappin product line that Stampin Up had several years ago. Back then, I was an avid scrapbooker...up until my kids graduated from high school. I haven't scrapbooks very much since then. Maybe once I start having grand babies, I'll pick it back up!!
Tic Tac Toe challenge time!! I decided to go for the middle, side to side...twine//heart//sentiment. The leaves and sentiment are from Stampin Up's Animal Outing and the giraffe was a gift from a friend (not sure which company it is from).
This week for the Global Design Project, we were to CASE one of the design team members, Charlet Mallet. Her card is gorgeous!! What does it mean to CASE??
CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit I used the scripted background and the cascade of florals flowing off the main image as my inspiration for today's card. The reason for this cactus as my focal point...the Inspired By challenge.
Card #1 made for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #423 and the Paper Players challenge #478 (Woodland Critters) Using Stampin Up's Still Night stamp set and matching dies. Actually I didn't use the stamps on the the card just on the matching envelope.
Card #2 is for the Library Challenge. The book that is to be our inspiration is Groogle's Monster Valentine by Diana Murrey. For this challenge we are suppose to create a card that is inspired by the title, the cover, or the story. I picked the cover...the colors really grabbed me!! #bethegift challenge:Compliment day!! Hand out as many compliments as humanly possible today and feel the joy!!
Here is my take on the Just Us Girls challenge to use cream, gold, and black. I also used the sketch challenge from As You See It. This gold ribbon was another ribbon from one of our beautiful flower bouquets that get delivered each week to our office.
