One Layer Simplicity Challenge

I am finding that my blog is filling on a daily basis.  When I get an open date, I pop in to play in challenges.  Today, I am joining in at the One Layer Simplicity Challenge; fruit smoothie.  Seriously I can not remember the last time I played in this challenge AND I really like this challenge.

I used Inspired By Stamping Sun Ripened Pear set. [I love the font of the sentiments in the set.]

Okay, that's it for me today.  I might be back tomorrow playing in a different challenge~

STAMPlorations Inspiration #77

This is my last card using the newly released stamps sets from April. I will be using these in the future, but for this month I'm done.  Today I am using Big Grins [Becca Cruger, illustrator] new set, Strong Women.  This set has some really good sentiments!

I love cards that really don't require anything but the sentiment.  Easy to make, but perfect!

Come on over to the STAMPlorations Blog to see the other Designer's cards.  Don't forget about leaving a comment for the monthly prize!

SCS Color Challenge #584

For the SCS Color Challenge this week, Maura has chosen Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie, with a dessert of any green.  Well, I came as close as I had with the colors, and didn't use the dessert.

I used the newly released STAMPlorations Trendy Feathers 2.  [I do love these fun feathers.]  My happy is from Mama Elephant. I used an embossing folder for the panel texture. 

Your turn!  Come on over to the SCS Color Challenge and play along!  We would love to have you to join in~

Just Us Girls #344 - Color Week & CAS-ual Fridays

It's Color Challenge Week over at JUGS.  It is also my day for a post over on the CAS-ual Friday's blog.  Therefore, I combined one card.

I used CAS-ual Fridays stamp set, Tin Roof for my water colored, resist background, along with the Friend Fri-Die.  I was actually able to use some of my [really, really old] Perfect Plum card stock and ink from Stampin Up!  I loved that!  My card base is vanilla, but you can't tell in this photo...... :(

Your turn!  Come on over to Just Us Girls and play along with us!  Can't wait to see your creations.  [The DT cards this week are amazing!!!]

Seize the Birthday - Dimention

The optional topping this week is dimension

Probably 95% of my cards have dimension, and today's card is no exception.  I love using foam tape to pop up my images. I also used white crafter foam for popping up my card panel. Using Altenew's Hennah Elements makes for an amazing dimensional card in my book. 

Now it's your turn to join in over at Seize the Birthday!  Remember, the topping is optional, but it must be a birthday card.

Mod Squad One Layer Card Challenge

For this challenge, we at Mod Squad are challenging you to make a one layer card.  Sometimes, these are easy to make, sometimes not so much.  Fortunately, this time it was easy for me.  By using Inspired By Stamping's Flower of the Month, Aster stamp set, my card came together quickly.

I love coloring IBS images -- nice and easy :).

Your turn!  Come on over to the Mod Squad Challenge and play along!  There are some amazing prizes offered to the winners!
