Colorful Wishing You

You know when you have an idea in your head, and you get excited about putting it to paper, and you try it 1000 times, and you still can't make it work?  Yeah, that's what happened to this card.  Love this stamp set by Mama Elephant, though...I sort of attempted to try to maybe enter this into their competition last month, but nope.  Sigh.

Paper: PTI White, Blueberry Sky, Harvest Gold, Berry Sorbet
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow, Versafine Onyx
Stamps: Mama Elephant So Breezy
Other: Copic markers, dimensional tape, square punch for ends of flags

  2. Oh, how I love this community. You know how you don't really like how your card turned out even after you tried doing it a thousand ways from Sunday? The funniest thing about that, Cheryl, is that you post it anyway and it turns out there are people who are so very thankful you did, thankful you made it, and thankful they got to see inked-up-sunshine radiating from a card!!

Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.

Father's Day & CFC 105

Hello again.  I'm just briefly coming up for air after hiding from the freight train of the end of the school year.  Graduation, birthdays, camping trips, and Father's Day--all in the same week?  Um, okay.

Anyway, here is a Father's Day card for my dad (and a twin one for my FIL).  I love this World Map stamp!  This also qualifies for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge, using maps.  Yahoo!


Stamped on white cardstock in Versamark, then heat embossed in white.  Then I used Distress inks to sponge on the color.  Love this look!

The inside of the card says, "Dad, Grandpa, Father-in-law.  Happy Father's Day!"

Paper: PTI Kraft, White
Ink: Versamark, Distress Inks--Faded Jeans, Shabby Shutters
Stamps: PTI World Map, World's Greatest
Other: PTI Double-ended banner die



Muse Challenge #14--Merci

I'm finally throwing my hat in the ring for this week's Muse Challenge.  What I really loved about this card was the masked circle and the white "frame" around the flowers.  I took the liberty of making it horozontal, monochromatic and bold.  I forgot how much I love PTI's Giga Guide Lines.

Here's Virginia Lu's inspiration card:


Here's mine:

Thanks for looking!
