Simple Sunflowers...

Good morning everyone!

A new challenge starts today over at Try it on Tuesday and the theme is...
Keep it Simple
I wanted to make some quick cards to add to my donation box so this challenge theme was perfect for that! I used a sunflower stencil from Crafters Workshop and several colors of Distress Oxide Inks. I use a Avery Elle die for the stitched rectangle and both sentiments are from Simon Says Stamp. I love how easy these cards came together, I even bought another large flower stencils so I could make some more! :) 

I hope you can join us and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the teams beautiful creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for the comments you leave!

Be brave... Be awesome

 Good morning everyone! 

I've been working on some cute and encouraging cards to add to my donation box so I thought I would pop in today and share one of them with you :)
It features a really sweet lion image out of the 'Be a Warrior' stamp set from Tracey Hey... it's stamped in Ranger Archival Ink and colored with a combination of Zig and MozArt Brush pens. The sentiment was heat embossed with white powder and attached using TH tiny attacher. I used a CrafTreat stencil and Mermaid Lagoon DI for the heart background.
 
That's it for now- thanks so much for stopping by!

Here Comes Summer...

Good morning everyone!

I'm thrilled to share my card today because I have been invited to be a Guest Designer at Try it on Tuesday! Thank you to Jo and the TIOT team for inviting me :) 

The theme for the next two weeks is 'Here Comes Summer' and my card features a cute image from C.C. Designs... she's colored with Copics and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions. To create the background I used: Lindy's Magicals, Carved Pumpkin DOI mixed with Viva Glitter Paste, MFT Confetti stencil and Brushed Corduroy ink for the sand.
 The adorable little crab was cut with a Spellbinders die and I used Impression Obsession dies for the beach pail & shovel. The rounded rectangle was cut with a Pink & Main die and I used a MFT die for the sun. 
I had so much fun making this card and love how bright and summery it turned out! Now head on over to the Try it on Tuesday challenge blog and enter your 'Here comes Summer' creations.
