Thinking of you SC130

This week we have a these summertime fun photos for inspiration:

Here is my take:


That beautiful cake caught my eye, it is so striking.  I stamped the outer flower that you can just barely see with shimmer versamark.  You can see it much better in real life and it’s pretty.  I will wait a little longer next time before stamping the stamens as they wanted to bleed.  One is a little fuzzy but not enough to redo the card.


Thank you for stopping by and I can’t wait to see what you create!

Time for the Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop!


This month’s inspiration photo:




Supplies:  PTI Black Cardstock, Quilled Elegance, Embroidered Blooms; 
Zig Markers, Watercolor paper, Wink of Stella

I found lots of inspiration from the artist’s website but everything I made looked messy to me so I went back to my old standby of clean and simple.  This was my first attempt with the Zig’s and so far the Zig’s are winning.  I need to practice with them, a lot…  I used them here without water.

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

I used an Art Impressions stamp for this card and some designer paper from my stash that I thought looked like a mess of kitty fur.  🙂  This was my first attempt at using colored pencils with gamsol.  I think it turned out pretty well for my first time.

See that cute kitty on the right?  It hold scotch tape and was given to me by my good friend Toni from Frankie Helps Craft.  Toni is a trooper, she came to my house (over an hour away) two weekends in a row and actually spent the night while helping me clean my craft room!  She is awesome!  The room is awesome too!  I will have a post with pictures coming next month on it.
