Peachy Keen Throwdown

 I couldn’t wait to play along with Lynn’s colors this week at the Color Throwdown...peach, pink, yellow, and orange. 

 I had the perfect set to use...The Greetery’s “Print Shop: Peachy Keen!”

I also used The Greetery’s “Create-a-Crate” dies, a sentiment from “Just Mason Around, and a little peach from “Just Peachy Sentiments.”  I made my chalkboard sign with Black Soot and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink, white embossing powder, and the square and frame dies in the “Create-A-Crate” set.

A few other colors snuck in to the party...😬! Of course, I used green for my leaves. My background is made by my 14 year-old daughter when we did the shaving cream technique a few weeks ago, and she mixed yellow and purple. Even my 16 year-old daughter joined in the fun, and I have a Halloween card in mind with one of her backgrounds. Thanks so much for stopping by! ❤️

Jersey Shore Sketch

This week at Freshly Made Sketches, the sketch was to make a slimline card design! 

I used The Greetery’s new Destination: Summer stamps, stencils, and dies, and Trinity Stamps “Slimline Stitched” dies for my card. 

I stenciled the background using the Waterfront stencils in the Destination: Summer stencil set. These stencils are made for an A2 card, but with a little adjusting, you can extend the pattern for the whole length of the card.

I stamped and die cut images from the Destination: Summer set, and used The Greetery’s “Slim Alphabet” dies for my words. 

Our destination is the Jersey Shore on Monday...Long Beach Island (affectionately called LBI which I added with mini stamps from PTI’s tiny Simple Alphabet set on my compass piece). We’re going to see my family with a plan to stay close to their home while there...but hoping that Hurricane Isaias doesn’t throw another wrench in our plans!

Thanks for stopping by!
