OLW59 Inspiration Challenge

Susan's One-Layer Wednesday challenge this week is to let this picture from Pinterest inspire our creativity. Usually my thoughts evolve as I put ideas to paper, but this week I instantly thought of my PTI Year Of Flowers Collection and the Savvy Outline Dot Background stamp. The challenge for me was making it a one-layer card. I will still cover the sentiment with a popped up message later. In retrospect, I should have found a bolder,  larger sentiment for this instead of trying to squeeze one between dots.

Thanks for stopping by.

OLW57 Summer Holidays!

WooHOO!!  Two posts in one day, and I finally get to participate in the OLW Challenge. I've missed it so!

This week Jennifer has tasked us with creating a card "that is inspired by any or all of the following: summer, the beach, the sea, sun, sand, the lake, the cottage – pretty much anything that says summer and/or summer holidays." I just posted a card here for Emily's birthday on Tuesday that would qualify, but to stay legal, I inked up a new-to-me stamp from Catslife Press and paired it with an older Stampendous cling stamp that I think of anytime the word "beach" is mentioned in connection to stamping. I filled in the image a bit with my neglected colored pencils (wow am I rusty!) and added Rock Candy Stickles to the "water's" edge for some sparkle.

Now, please check out Tuesday's post and tell me which card you like better ;)

Thank you for stopping by.


Happy Anniversary, Carol and John!

Just can't let the day pass without giving a shout out to Carol and John to wish them a happy anniversary. Have a great day guys!

This is the card I sent . . . nothing fancy. The ol' mojo definitely needing to be recharged.

I'll be back a little later to post my OLW card.

Happy Birthday, Emily!!

This post is a day late, but that's okay because Emily celebrates her birthday for at least a week =)

A simple card using an Inkadinkado dolphin from one of their mini sets, a sentiment from Hero Arts and the wave border punch from Fiskars. I colored the dolphin with Copics and raised part of the waves and the dolphin with pop dots. Added some Crystal Effects on the splash for more texture and dimension, and rounded the corners because I wanted to =D

Thank you for stopping by today. Hopefully, my posts will get more regular again.
