Cascading Flip Flops

Stephanie Gold posted such a fun Make it Monday video at Papertrey Ink this week called "Cascading Die Cuts". I couldn't wait to play along! Here is my summer-inspired card with the "Flippin' Out" stamp set and dies!

Underneath each flip flop, I stamped the Sand Swatch Mini Background in Kraft ink on Kraft paper

So much fun and looks authentic every time I use this image with Kraft ink and paper. These bright  flip flop colors are faves of mine from AMuse Studio...Cobalt, Margarita, and Berry with some lovely Mango Fresh Ink from Impress!

Patriotic Fence Throwdown

This week at the Color Throwdown Challenge, some patriotic shades of red, white, and blue...

I used PTI's Picket Fence die, Petite Pots, and Sentiment Staples: Birthday for my little scene...

Added a mini banner cut with a Mama Elephant die.

The fence is embossed with a Woodgrain Impression plate, and some little Nuvo Dots all around. Wishing you a Memorial Day full of remembrances, patriotism, family, and friends.

Good Day, Sunshine!

This week at the Simon Says Stamp blog, the Monday Challenge was to make a project inspired by a  song. These Lawn Fawn "Hello Sunshine" images made me think of the Beatles' song, "Good Day, Sunshine." I was also inspired to try Jennifer McGuire's "Stamped-Fold Card Designs" shown HERE. SO amazing!

Not quite what I had pictured in my mind, but still cheery!

Here is a close up of my little time, I think I will go a little bigger like Jennifer did in her tutorial! Added PTI's Picket Fence die and Simon Says Stamps' "Artsy Flower Parts" to the scene.

 Inside a few more images and a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's "Hello Sunshine."

The inside has some cloud patterned paper while the outside is stamped in yellow with the Gingham Backgrounder, an oldie but goodie from Cornish Heritage Farms!

I just loved this technique, can't wait to try it again...maybe tomorrow!

Peony Bouquet

Got a chance to go to my favorite stamp store Buffalo Stamps this weekend, and bought my first Altenew set with dies...Peony Bouquet.

Had a scrap frame stamped with the Canvas Cover-A_Card background from Impression Obsession and also used a Striped Backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms. The sentiment is from the Artsy Flowers set from Simon Says Stamp. Also bought my first set of Catherine Pooler inks! This peony is stamped in 3 of her yellows...Shea Butter, Tiara  and Sauna. So fun!

Summer Florals Throwdown

This week at the Color Throwdown Challenge are some fresh and fun colors to, pale yellow, and grey! I  chose to use WPlus9 Studio's "Southern Summer Florals" stamp set and dies
for my card...

Also used a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, popped up some flowers, and added Nuvo Jewel Drops in Limoncello. The paper is from an older DCWV pad.

Hope YOU have a beautiful day, too!
