I Saw…Pink Hollyhocks!

 A fun new challenge find for me! I discovered the As You See It Challenge blog and was instantly inspired! Here is the recipe for the newest challenge…

Distressed paper, blossoms, shades of pink, an embossing folder, and pearls!

I used The Greetery’s “BotaniCuts: Hollyhocks” for my card…

I made my background with The Greetery’s “Print Shop: Calico.” I stamped and stenciled in pinks, then added the Stampin Up “Tasteful Textile” embossing folder over the top (also some white ink)! I used a distressed edger tool, too. Added 3 teeny pearls and recipe complete!

What a fun challenge, can’t wait to play along again soon! Thanks so much for stopping by! 💕

Inspired by Lemons

A fun inspiration photo at the Inspired By Card Challenge! This week’s theme is lemons!

I loved the alternating yellow and white boxes with the crisp black lettering…and the pink lemon! I used products from different companies to create my card…

From The Greetery: “Dried Citrus Slices,” “Big Branches: Ruscus,” and “Big Branches: Baby’s Breath (which I cut from black cardstock and then added white gel pen blossoms!). From The Stamp Market: “Citrus Vine,” the “Ready to Bloom Card Cover,” and a sentiment from “A Simple Hello.” The retired background is the “Broad Stripe Background” from Cornish Heritage Farms.” Such a wonderful photo!

Thanks for stopping by! 🍋

Birthday Bouquet with Bow Throwdown

Time for some bright and bold colors this week at the Color Throwdown …pink, aqua, pale yellow, and navy!

I made a big birthday bouquet…

Used The Greetery’s “Print Shop: Floral Frame,” “Print Shop: Fresh Florals,” and “All Kinds of Happy” stamps and dies. The navy is denim patterned paper. I’ve had that paper bow in my “leftover pieces” dish for…years 😂🤦‍♀️! Today seemed like a perfectly happy day to use it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
