Campfires and Marshmallows

I was in the mood for s'more ;) plaid paper so I dug out my Jack Collection by CTMH and played.

A simple card for me, but I love how it turned out.  I just used some dies and a stamped sentiment both from MFT.

Live the life...

I played with some Crate Paper and Reverse Confetti today :)

Lots of layers, some fussy cutting of the roller skates and stamped sentiment, stitching, staples and twine... that feels more like my card, LOL!  I did have fun with this one.   I used the Tall Tag Trio and the Posted Note Sentiments, both from Reverse Confetti. 

I was inspired by this sketch:

Surf's Up!

While I had the No Worries collection still out on my desk, I decided to create a card and play along with some challenges.

Just some simple layering of papers, stickers and die cuts.  I then added some SRM Stickers.  Easy peesy!

Scrappy Sunday - Salt, Sand and Sea

I had some scrappy time this morning so I created another layout.

I used the No Worries collection by CTMH as it is perfect for these photos of my hubby and grand daughter from last year. 

I cut the large title with my Silhouette.  The stickers on the photos and the 'direction signs' are from SRM stickers

I used different pieces from the Compliments to scatter over the page.  I also tucked in some Burlap ribbon.

Of course it wouldn't be complete without a bit of stitching and staples :)

I am playing along with this sketch from Stuck?!

Simple retirement cards

In keeping with my simple theme ;)  I have a couple of retirement cards to share with you today.

For this first card I stamped the chair frame in Smokey Slate.  To create the seat, I first inked the stamp with So Saffron and then stamped on it with the stripes from the Playful Backgrounds using Daffodil Delight.  I then decided where the chair would go, stamped the sentiments and mounted the chair on foam squares. 

Next up, same basic process, except for the chair seat, I stamped the image on the back of the striped paper, cut it out and then adhered it to the chair.

Sweet summer treats

When I saw the inspiration at Cupcake Inspirations... I knew which paper I wanted to use, the striped paper from the SU! Tasty Treat collection.  Which paired nicely with a couple more challenges so I had fun playing with these stamps from Sunny Studio.
First up the Perfect Popsicle set... but I created fudgesicles (which are so summer to me... one of my favorites as a kid!) 

Once again, I cut the sentiment apart before adhering.  Don't those fudgesicles look good enough to eat?!  One of them is mounted on foam squares. 

The sketch is from:

Next up... chocolate ice cream...yum!  I used the Two Scoops stamp set I kept it simple (inspired by a card I saw somewhere on Pinterest)  with a tone on tone die but I did add a striped canopy at the top of the card... ice cream shoppe kind of look.

Once again... that ice cream looks good enough to eat!

Playing along with: 

Finally, I had to create something with the Sweet Shoppe stamp set.  I did paper piecing on this one. 

Don't you love the look of the textured cardstock from MME?  Works well here doesn't it? The cupcake is mounted on foam squares. 

Here is the inspiration picture... how fun!
