Stamp Ink Paper #138 - Cardmaker's Choice

Image
Welcome back to another Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge!
This week, it's something I know you are going to love - Cardmaker's Choice!  Use your faves -the sky's the limit!




I designed this card using a fabulous image
 and sentiment from Unity called
 "bright, happy you". I used
Stampin Up Ink in Blushing Bride
for the rose, with just a bit of green
from my Zig markers for the leaves. 
That awesome picture frame die is
from Lawn Fawn, and my gorgeous
 paper is from Close To My Heart - it
 is called Happy Times!  I love that fun flower clip from Simon Says Stamp and burlap and leaf ribbon that I had in my stash! (That was a Dollar Store find, believe it or not!)
I am sure this week you will play along with our Cardmakers' Choice challenge -
 you can really go wild with this! Be sure to link your project to the challenge - click on the photo below to get there! 



Thanks for stopping by! Love, Peace n' Ink

Inspired By... Cheesecake, Anyone?

Image
Happy Thursday! 
It's time for another Inspired By challenge! This week is a super sweet inspiration for  your creativity!

Doesn't our cue card make you drool? That cheesecake is mouth-watering and I took the cue from those sweet, sweet berries! Now granted, I had to go into my stash of crafty goodness to find something "berry" but my Papertrey Ink set called Green Thumb was perfect! I stamped the berries with some CTMH ink and popped the berries up, layering dies from Paper Smooches over some Project Life cards! I also used a "sweet" sentiment from a Stampin Up set called Tasty Trucks! 
I hope this cue card inspires YOU to ink something up for  our challenge this week!
Thanks for stopping by!

Inspired By - Got Mail?

Image
Happy Thursday, folks! 
It is a wee bit warmer these last few days, which is a good thing - the air hurts your face when you have to go outside! Here's hoping we can get out for some fresh air this weekend!
We are playing with another fabulous Inspired By challenge today - and the cue card is adorable!







I dug into my PL card stash and combined it with some paper from Stampin Up and  Crate Paper for this mail-inspired card! Those fun little envelopes stuffed to the brim with  fun hearts were created with the Love Notes framelits from SU! as well!  This #snailmail needs to go out for delivery this week - I have  someone sweet to send it to!
Be sure to link to our challenge once you have designed something using our cue card  for inspiration - it can be ANY paper project - not just a card! 
Thanks so much for stopping by - can't wait to see what you create!
Love, Peace n' Ink

Paper Craft Crew Challenge - Mardi Gras!

Image
Happy Wednesday! 
It's Paper Craft Crew challenge time again! This week - we are celebrating Mardi Gras up in here!
That's right! It's a Mardi Gras challenge! 





This was a real challenge for me this week, I will admit. After all...  I AM a Canuck ;)   I  actually had to research a bit to get the whole story on what Mardi Gras is really about. Sounds wild!  So with limited knowledge, and sadly, no beads in hand... I had to come up with something inventive to go with our theme this week! 
Details: Stamp: (Unity) Masquerade (SU) Labeller Alphabet Ink: Versamark, (SU) Gumball Green Paper: (SU) Basic Black, Gold Glitter, Perfect Plum, Whisper White Gold embossing powder Black embossing folder Tools: Cuttlebug embossing folder

I had to get creative with a sentiment.. as nothing I had seemed to fit.  The Labeller Alphabet is PERFECT for times like these. I definitely  enjoyed the 2-tone embossing on the mask - I was needing to add some SHINE! A few jazzy sequins and splashes of FSJ G…

February Viva la Verve Sketch!

Image
Hi friends! Happy Tuesday!  Today I am sharing a sweet little card I designed for the Viva la Verve challenge! This sketch is SO versatile - I just know I am going to create another special
card with it! I just adore the "Love From Me" Digi set that Verve
has created - and it was perfect for this sketch!

I pulled out my FAVE Valentines paper from my stash - Stampin Up!'s  Wild About You DSP, and Crate Paper's Hello Love patterned paper pack  are a great combination.  I layered my Powder Pink cardstock on another layer of Kraft  before attaching it to my black cardstock base. The sketch measurements  were only a suggestion - as I had to play with sizes  a little to get everything just right. :)  I also used a wee scrap of Kraft and my Memory Box edge die  for a fun little strip layer. My heart punch went to work, and one of the larger  Kraft hearts was embossed with a woodgrain folder from Stampin Up!  Finally - a wee bit of fun polkadot sheer ribbon from my stash  w…

Stamp Ink Paper #136 - Cabin Feverrrrrrrrrrr!

Image
Winter! It really sucks!! 
Let me just start by saying that - and, for anyone who doesn't know this already... I live in Canada where we have (no exaggerating!) approximately 6 months of it.  Snow and cold can happen anytime from October to into April and it has even been  known to SNOW IN MAY! (ask me about my May long weekend camping  adventure wearing wool socks and throwing rocks out on to the ice that was still on the lake)
So - for me - the Stamp Ink Paper challenge this week  means I WANNA SEE SOMETHING GREEN!  I want grass.... and flowers... and... anything but white stuff and  minus 30 temps for weeks at a time! Some girls like a beach and a margerita - I prefer a cold beer and a boat on a lake with a fishing rod in my hand. I am counting the days!   Cabin Fever is a REAL.THING. when you live here. Why do you think I make cards?  It's either that or go shack-wacky from the cold!
Here's what I created to inspire you! 

I used a lovely stamp from Unity called New Be…

This month we are getting fab with foils over here! We are using some Ranger Foils
and they were a BLAST!
Here is my design! 





These foils are gorgeous - but VERY hard to photograph !! My little little tag is so cute and shiny!
A few details: 
Stamp: (SU) You Plus Me Die: (SU) Sunshine Wishes Ink: (Distress Oxides) Red Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Versamark  (SU) Silver embossing powder Nuvo drops




This foils was so much fun to play with - and even though it was my very 1st time using it (I lead a sheltered crafty life haha) they were not intimidating at all! I can't wait to use them again for another creation!
The next stop on our hop is Karla Yungwirth . Check out her amazing project
