Beautifully Hand-Penned – Thanks

Sketch: Paper Craft Crew (#437); Subject/Theme: Global Design Project (#303) and Colors: Just Add Ink (#565). Here is the result: Steps: Card Base: (11” x 4¼” scored atContinue reading “Beautifully Hand-Penned – Thanks”

Citrus Bubble Over – Your Kindness is Refreshing!

The Happy Little Stamper’s group puts out five different challenges each month.  The July CAS (Clean and Simple) Challenge was “Citrus and Zing”.  I have to tell you I struggled with this theme.  Every Lemon type stamp set that I recalled I might still have, I could not find.  Then yesterday I had an idea. Continue reading “Citrus Bubble Over – Your Kindness is Refreshing!”

Daisy Lane – Thank You

The inspiration photo presented by the Cookie Challenge (#158) for July is so pretty.  Lovely little flowers in soft colors bearing the message, Thank You.

The CAS Color & Sketch Challenge (#492) this week is a double.  The color choice had me diving into my paper storage bins and hunting out retired ink pads.  What fun to play with the old and mixing it with the new!

Celebrate Sunflowers – Thanks a Bunch

My take on this week’s Sunday Sketch Challenge – SS005. The choice of stamp set – Celebrate Sunflowers was influenced by the Color Challenge presented by Hand Stamped Sentiments (#366). Here is the result: Steps: Focal Image: Sunflowers.  The smaller Sunflower image was stamped twice on to a scrap of Basic White cardstock using MementoContinue reading “Celebrate Sunflowers – Thanks a Bunch”

A Garden full of Thanks

Two challenges today.  Try Stampin’ On Tuesday’s (#510) and Tic Tac Toe (#118).  I opted to combine the White-on-White technique with the suggested sketch with TSOT510 and the row I chose from TTTC118 allowed me to choose a color, in this case Shimmery White and a CAS (clean and simple) design.  The center square isContinue reading “A Garden full of Thanks”

Dragonfly Garden – Thank You So Much

A quick little card to enter into the Freshly Made Sketch (#488) Challenge using the Reflection Technique.

Who doesn’t love a little Red, White and Blue?  Such a fresh combination.  Ahoy, there…ComeContinue reading “Nautical All Squared Away – Thanks”

On A Wing – The Sky is the Limit

Dipping in to the stash with a little nostalgia.  We have to admit that there are just some stamp sets we choose to hang on to and more than a few leftover bits and pieces of cardstock and patterned paper. For the Tic Tac Toe Challenge (#114), the retired stamp set the Sky is theContinue reading “On A Wing – The Sky is the Limit”
