Stamptember Blog Hop with Scrap n Stamp

Image
Welcome back, everyone! 
I am blog hopping again with the Scrap n' Stamp girls! This month is our Stamptember Blog Hop!




You likely arrived here via Karla's blog! Isn't her project awesome?
This month we are highlighting this amazing die from Memory Box called Postage Strip! For a limited time you can get 25% off this fun little crafty treat - get it here!

Here is my design!




I used my Ken Oliver Colorbursts for that bright watercolour background -  those super-fun metal embellishments are also from Ken Oliver  - that light bulb was perfect! You can find them in the online store as well!


I had a lot of fun using this simple little die for this belated birthday card! It takes Happy Mail to a new level! The sentiment used is from Unity Stamps. Thanks for stopping by - be sure to leave some love below to let me know you popped in along the Hop!
Next up is Nancy!

Welcome everyone!
Today I am playing along with the challenge from The Paper Players - it's a fantastic sketch challenge courtesy of Laurie!

I love this versatile sketch and I think I just might whip up another design this week with it, it was that much fun to use!

Just Because-It is Wednesday!

Happy Hump Day!
Today  I am sharing a quick little design I created! 


Wedding season isn't quite over, even though we already have had a few chilly nights here. Harvest will be in full swing soon! I created this card for a lucky Bride & Groom in mind!
I had a little help with some goodies from Stampin Up - including my Lovely Words thinlits and Sunshine Wishes dies! There was NO stamps needed for this card - just a simple wash of some Blushing Bride ink with my Aqua Painter on to a piece of watercolour paper, and mounted on some of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper - I love it !

My Muse!

Welcome back to another week! Mondays can be a bit of a drag - but this week I have a ton of fun stuff happening! Everything from family visiting, to concerts - summer has been hectic, but fun! 
I took some time out to get up to my studio and design this "SWEET" little card - I used some Unity goodness for this - and, I got some creative inspiration from a rad designer named Tenia Nelson. Her style ROCKS! Tenia always uses a lot of white space in her design - but her style is so unique! 



I used some Nuvo embossing mousse and a stencil from Tim Holtz to add a bit of texture - I really need to play with it more often - it was fun! 
I hope to have more time in my studio as the summers winds down - thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) This Sketch #233

Image
Did I say how much I am LOVING my week off?! No?! Well ... 2 ... TWO - inky projects in one week - and I still have time to play! It's been a blast!
I created this project to play along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!



I am loving my watercolours right now, and pulled out my Pool Party, Lost Lagoon andIsland Indigo inks from SU for that moody blue background!  I saw the awesome card DT member Donna created with the balloon, and I knew I wanted to use her as my muse - but I saw clouds :) 
I couldn't resist using more of my Unity Stamps for this project - I got both the image and sentiment in a grab bag - lucky me! I added a Wink of Stella to my Daffodil Delight and Fresh Fig butterfly, up close it just SPARKLES! I added those sequins from Neat & Tangled for just a bit more shine. 
Let me know you were here - leave some love - Thanks for stopping by!
