PANTONE CHIP INSPIRED CARDS


A lot of the time I am drawn to a simple graphic look and Lexi's challenge was right up that alley! Her cards looked so fun I had to find time to try it:




I played with Summer Sweetness - my first PTI set I ever bought =)
Words from Swoosh, Pretty Petals, and One Big Happy. I did some dry embossing for the back grounds.

Have a good evening!

Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge



Our lovey inspiration:


I didn't have an idea for my card until my newly purchased You've Been Framed: Hexagon dies and 'hello' Noted Die arrived. I thought the hexagon shape matched well with the shape of the vases and I came up with this:


The 'hello' was masked then ink blended. Then the hexagon piece was coved in glossy accents to match the vases. I also used Beautiful Brush strokes to add the flowers.

Wow...it's been a while. I'm having to remember how to blog =) It was just was a busy spring with the girls' school & activities. Plus little Mr. who is now 10 months old getting so busy! And nice weather means time to try to grow a garden and pick lots of weeds! It sadly leaves little time to make cards =( But I'm still watching, looking, dreaming and I'll join when I can.
Have a great hop,
Noelle

STENCILED WATERCOLOR BACKGROUNDS


Happy Saturday!
I had some time to try a stencil from the Post & Parcel Kit.
I used the snow stencil to make some watercolored confetti:


I stamped 'Celebrate' from Celebrate Big and gave it a water wash so it looked watercolored. Then I punched out some balloons and watercolored them. String and clear sequins finished the cards off.

We are crafting this morning and have a bee field trip this afternoon!

Have a wonderful day!

STAMPING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX


Lexi gave us a design basic and how the ideas started flying. You could use this idea with almost any stamp set and of course I had so many ideas and so little time =)

I challenged myself to use a stamp set I hadn't used in a while and got one card done.



Made a 'box' using Chevron Stripes. Then added a car and sentiment from Need for Speed
I added a die cut chevron scrap from Clipsters...so fun when you can use those scraps!

Have a great evening,
Noelle
