Card Recognition

Monday, June 18, 2018


Hello Monday!  Playing along with the PTI Make It Monday Challenge, I used a Concord & 9th flower and colored the leaves with colored pencils and water colors.

hello adventure and more...

hello adventure....  it's summer and the campground is b-u-s-y!  So, please forgive the fact that I keep making the cards and forgetting to post them...  the first card is for the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash challenge.  I used a whole bunch of goodies in this card-- Reverse Confetti triangles, sentiment and road dies, Sweet Shop trailer, Concord & 9th hello, PTI banner die, Verve sun and clouds die....


This is me playing...  because we have a super cute vintage pop up trailer at the campground right now.  I guess I should color the trailer with more browns?

Playing along with this week's CAS(E) this sketch, I went literal...

And yesterday I was up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog with this card....

happy camper

Happy Saturday.... I should really motivate over to the campground, been at home tackling some cleaning projects (oh fun!).  I used the CAS(E) this sketch as my source of inspiration for the card.  My second card is for the Fusion Card Challenge, using all new goodies from Verve Stamps (so sad they're closing, but wish Julie well).

adventure awaits

Play along with the current MFT Sketch Challenge.  Using MFT dies and a PTI sentiment.  For a tag-centric girl, I really haven't been using my stash the way I use to... might have to work on that!

hello...  playing along with this week's PTI Make It Monday "lots o dots" challenge.  I don't have any Nuvo Crystal Gloss Drops, but when I went looking through my PTI stash for stamps with dots, I pulled out this Mat Stack stamp and added glossy accents to the dots (see below for a better angle).  Doesn't have the color... but I like the added texture... even with the mess I created (I spilled glossy accents all over the pants I was wearing).  I added a piece of Lawn Fawn patterned paper to the background and a pice of vellum, PTI flowers and a PTI hello die to complete the card.  My second card is me playing with stamps to make more cards for the campground-- love how not level that campsite is.

believe in your dreams....

When I saw the Neat & Tangled release with the stamp set Layered Landscape I knew I "needed" it-- and having had a little bit of time to play with it I'm so glad I was right!  This card was inspired by my friend Joanna's "oops" (read her IG post for more details).  My second card was inspired by the new Reverse Confetti stock your stash challenge....  I was looking for some vellum and accidentally pick up this long envelope.  So I heat embossed the Reverse Confetti sentiment on the outside and used the stamps to create a flat one sheet note.  My third card is yet another one of those pep talks to myself....

some girls....

I'm sad that the coffee loving cardmakers hop is coming to an end, it inspires me to reach deep into my stash and go a little overboard.... so without further adieu here are my final 6 cards, bringing the total of coffee fun up to 62 for this hop.  I had forgotten that the winter hop somehow inspired me to make 61 projects (click here for that round up).  So... who knew!  I thought I'd do more, but we'll call it good with 62.  Now what am I going to do with all these coffee cards???   

This card is inspired by the current CAS(E) this sketch.

Thursday coffee fun

With a latte love.... I made these cards all in the wee hours of the morning and then went to work for 12 hours and didn't find the time to post them.  So, without further adieu, here are more cards for the Spring/Summer Coffee Loving Blog Hop.  My first card combines the Lil Inker cup and sentiment with Reverse Confetti and MFT dies.

This card was for this week's CAS(E) this sketch challenge uses a Clear and Simple Stamps sentiment and PTI die.

This one is truly where I'm at.... combing an Altenew sentiment and a PTI coffee cup with t

....because... using the fun SugarPea Designs sentiment with Concord & 9th background stamps.

And finally the oh-so-awesome Simon Says sentiment, paper from my stash...
