Fun Friday With Your Next Stamp - Summer Fun!


            



YNSFFMay31

Well, it is the last Friday of May, and I am happy to be joining a handful of my fellow YNS design team members for Fun Friday with YNS!

Our theme for May was Summer Fun, and I was excited to ink up my favorite flamingo from the YNS stamp set "Flamingo Fred".



  I had so much fun making my card! I used the YNS "Puffy Cloud die set" and a flower that I turned into the sun from the "Whatnot Seasons Set One die set". My sentiment is from one of our new clear photopolymer stamp sets "Happy Day Sentiments".



I am happy you stopped by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

The Play Date Cafe Challenge # 184 - Hello Sunshine!





    Hello and welcome to The Play Date Cafe! This week we have a nature inspired color story featuring these colors:

Smoky Plum, Cherry Blossom, Lava

We also have a fabulous sponsor this week:





                     This is what I created using this weeks color story:

               
PDCCMay29

I sponged an embossing folder with 3 colors, and ran it, and a piece of white card stock through my Cuttlebug. I believe this is called the "letter press" technique. The "hello" was created using a sheet of cork board and a hello die, both from Papertrey Ink. The "sunshine" sentiment is also from PTI.

I hope you will play along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe! Thanks for stopping by!


 

Avery Elle May AEI♥U Challenge - Celebrate!


AAMayChallenge

    Hello! It has been quite awhile since I played along with the AEI♥U Challenge, and the inspiration picture was just too pretty to pass up!


I decided to use the colors, and patterns in the picture as my inspiration.

AAMayChallengecrop


    To create my card I used the Avery Elle stamp sets "Celebrate" and "Petals and Stems". I accented the petals, and leaves using pigment ink, and a blender pen. And as a final touch I added Crackle Accents to give them a touch of dimension.

I am happy you stopped by, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

               PTIHop


                 

   Hello! I have had a CRAZY busy day, but I wanted to play along with this months PTI Blog Hop because I heart flowers, and this was the perfect challenge theme for me! I used this color pallette:


                              Beautiful isn't it?
   To create my card I used the new set Ruby Rose, and one of my favorite PTI sets that I really need to use more often, Simply Jane. I stamped the frame, sprayed it with adhesive, and added Diamond Glitter from A Muse Studio. The chicken wire is from  PTI Farm and Barn Background Basics.

I am happy you stopped by, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
