Happy Wednesday As I was playing in my craft area yesterday, I went looking for a little inspiration from design challenges. I happened upon the CASE the designer challenge across at Global Design Project. As soon as I saw the challenge I knew I wanted to ink up the panda stamp from Wild and Sweet. This is a set I got in a recent order from Stampin' Up! Here's a sneak peek: Oh... and here's the inspiration design from Global Design Project that we have to CASE. I loved all that white space and the circular element. I stamped and... Read more →

Happy Tuesday. I got to play along with some challenges this weeked and it was wonderful creating cards just for the fun of it. I saw a challenge across at As You See It that is looking for multiple elements to be included on your card, so I had to put some thought into this one!

Here's a sneak peek of Inked and Tiled in a... Read more →

Happy Monday. I got to play in my craft room yesterday and was inspired by the bright moodboard across at Inkspirational. I was really inspired by the bright oranges and greens and I thought about some of the new DSP that I got from SU and decided it would be perfect paired with a large sentiment from the Kindest Sentiments set - also from SU. Here's a sneak peek: I really loved the moodboard and it reminded me of a pair of trousers I made back in the day. Promise you won't laugh!!! On one leg the back of the... Read more →

Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's sketch week. I actually made two different cards with this sketch but decided to go with the Cozy Cup version for our challenge. Cozy Cup was the first set that I ever saw from The Greetery and I absolutely fell in love with it. Couple of years later aand I still love it! For this challenge I paired it with a background stamp from My Favorite Things. Here's a sneak peek: And here is LeAnne's sketch: I went with neutrals for my colors... Read more →
