Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge



Our elegant inspiration:


 I was drawn to the monochromatic stamps and thought I would try and re-create something similar:





It was really fast and relaxing to stamp with just one color =)
I used the die from Post & Parcel for my stamp looking mats.

Supplies
Hawaiian Shores Ink
Songbirds stamp set
Mini Blooms stamp set
Beautiful Brush Strokes stamp set

I hope you have a wonderful week! 3 of the 4 kiddos are at Nana & Papa's this week. I'm enjoying the free time, but it is sooooo quiet! =)

Happy Hop!

CREATE ALONG WITH US: JULY 2017

 Lots of beautiful inspiration coming our way this week from Papertrey Ink! Here's one from Betsy:


The new Mix and Match dies made me think of the Post & Parcel kit.

I was inspired to use a Post & Parcel die as a mat in my card:



I'm a little late to the Petite Places party, but I got a few new sets that I have been having fun with! The Sweet Shop and the City Station. Here's some more just for fun:




It's officially summer at our house now that we finished our homeschool year! So I've been having a little summer fun myself =)

Have a wonderful week!

BUILDING WREATHS WITH SMALL IMAGES


I've stayed up too late playing with the Tinsel & Tags Sprigs set but had fun making a wreath for each season:


What a fun challenge Lizzie!  I just had to try it =)
Good night,

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
