Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  If you’re following along with us, you’ll know this is color week!  Be sure to check out all our talented ladies-who-hop! 🙂

Now – the colors we’re working with today – not really easy ones for me!

Since I needed all my brain power to create something in this color scheme, I let the fine folks over at the Fusion challenge help me with the layout…

Fusion is a cool one – cuz you can do their sketch, their photo inspiration, or both!  I used just the sketch.

Duh – right?? 🙂

So – I decided this was a beachy color scheme and pulled out the new Day at the Beach stamp set, and once again turned to the Sunshine Sayings set for my sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I’m glad you were able to stop by and appreciate you spending a little bit of your day with us.  Today we all worked a color sketch and I’m excited (and hope you are, too! 🙂 ) to see what all the ladies-who-hop have come up with as they work their crafty magic on this classic color combo:

Pretty, huh?  Gave us all a chance to play with the new Copper embellishments….Metallic Thread, Embossing Powder….Washi Tape.

I decided to play with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set – it’s got so many great sentiments and, of course, the beautiful….well, flourish!  I added some Botanical Blooms and the matching Botanical Builder flowers.  And as a starting touch….I used the Detailed Floral Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Greetings Congrats!

Happy Friday!  Well, I hope that you got all your Sale-A-Brating done last night and got all those goodies you’d been hoping for!  Cuz it’s in the history books for 2016! 🙂

Today’s card uses just a little bit of a fave Sale-A-Bration goody – the Wildflower Fields DSP.  If you don’t have any of it, not to worry – the design could oh-so-easily be adapted to any DSP that you DO have! 🙂

I used the Washi Label Punch to make the focal point of this quick and easy card, combining it with the beautiful font from Cottage Greetings.  And it really showcases some soon-to-be-gone 2014-2016 In Colors!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Beautiful Ride to Congratulate a New Couple!

Good Wednesday to y’all!  Hope that your week is going well.  I’m engrossed in trying to get back into the swing of things at home, receiving my boxes of toys from the post office, setting my stampin’ spot back up (I moved it a bit – and got all my fun new StampNStorage goodies all set up), and trying to kick my traditional post-business-trip cold.  Cuz…why not? 🙂  It really is the only way to experience the entirety of a long trip, don’t you think?

My card share today is one that I did last week in preparation for not having my stuff or the energy to get it all together to be card making for a day or two.  It uses the Wink of Stella “watercolor” technique that I did a few weeks ago (want to see that one?  Here’s the link!) paired with the Beautiful Ride stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  And, cuz I have it – I used some of the new Metallics Glitter Tape!  Take a look-see:
