A Hello to brighten your day

Look at me... another card to share - I hope this pattern continues :)

I knew that when I received my new CTMH goodies (Available in September) I had to create a card or something with them as they were so perfect for the Inspired By Challenge don't you think?

I just layered the papers, dies and a stamp. The colors are so pretty!

Don't forget to play along:

A couple of kids birthday cards

What? A post and it isn't Thursday? Yep finally got some crafty time that wasn't just for an assignment and was just for fun. It has been awhile (though I have been working on my Project Life, Fitness Journal and Project 12 albums, just haven't posted pics.)

Anyways dug into some retired CTMH - I used most of it, now the rest will be for my grand daugher :)

I am building my stash of kids cards both for me and now since my grand daughter is going to Kindergarten, she will need some.

First up I flipped the sketch of Freshly Made Sketches to create this simple card. Not much to say just some simple layering and fussy cutting. The dinosaur is mounted on foam squares.

Next up since The Paper Players called for a CAS kids card I went with that. The main panel is mounted on foam strips and the bear (Studio Katia) is mounted on foam circles.

Inspired By.... ice cream

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and it inspired me to create this 'cool' card. 

I pulled out the ice cream from the photo and went with that. All of the supplies are from CTMH (love that circle die... it is new!) except the ice cream cone die, it is from Reverse Confetti.

I taped off and inked a few different stamp sets to create the sentiment. One of which I cut apart and adhered down the side. I die cut the sentiment using a retired CTMH die. 

Now come on over and see what the others have created.

Inspired By... Back to School

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and it inspired me to create a school themed card. I love creating school themed items. My grand daughter starts Kindergarten this year so I made this for her and will give her some goodies to go along with it.

All of the paper and stamps are from CTMH. I used my Silhouette to cut out the images and a background die from Reverse Confetti.

Inspired By...the sea

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired to create this card. All of the papers are from CTMH but I pulled out an old PTI stamp set and was pretty literal with the inspiration. The fun die is from La-La-Land.

Now come on over and play along.

Inspired By...centerpiece

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired to create a couple of cards. I really love the colors in the inspiration photo and pulled out flowers for both cards. 

For this first card I used some papers from Felicity Jane. I fussy cut them out and mounted them on with foam squares. The sentiment is from CTMH. 

This next card uses all CTMH goodies and I actually colored. I pulled out clean and simple feel of the photo. I embossed the back with a CTMH folder. The sentiment and cake are mounted on foam squares. 

Now come on over and play along:

Inspired By... let's have s'more

The new Inspired By challenge is up and I was inspired to create this layout all about roasting marshmallows.

I have used the Into the Wild paper packet and embellishments by CTMH.

To create the title, I stamped and cut out the letters of the Outline Alphabet. I then used a couple different stamp sets stamped some sentiment and cut them apart before adhering. 

Here is the inspiration, come on over and play!

Inspired By... beach day

The new Inspired By challenge is up and I was inspired to create a layout. 

I used some old papers from Elle's Studio. I'm really making my way through my stash of hoarded goodies :) 

All of the supplies are from Elle's studio but I did stamp on the background using some old SU! stamps. 

I cut the title with my Silhouette. 

Now come on over and play with us:

Inspired By.... decadent strawberries

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and it is so pretty....

I was inspired by the sketch and the strawberries... though I really wanted to use the pretty colors too... perhaps I'll create a layout with them. 

Anyways, I used a new CTMH die (available for a short time only) along with some of the old papers and stamps to create my card.

I mounted the die cut frame on foam squares as well as the main image for some dimension. 

Here is the inspiration, can you see how I went with it? Come on over and play!

Inspired By... Barbeque party

The  New Inspired By Challenge is up and it is a good one for those who may be getting ready for the upcoming holiday celebrations. I was inspired by the barbeque type of theme and went with that. 

I have used some very old paper from MME. I paired it with a few different stamps. First up the main image is from Art Impressions and to make this even more fun... I added hair to the legs and he is mounted on a wiggler so he wiggles. 

Next up I added the grill and the 'plaque' from the Grill Master stamp set by Darcie's

Finally, the sentiment is from the Analogies stamp set from Picket Fence Studios

The stamps all work well together don't they? Now come on over and play along with us.
