Gated Arbor Fold

Celebrating Birds - I love this DSP from SU and want to use it as much as possible before it retires! Still haven't really thought of a name for this fold, right now I'm calling it an Gated Arbor Fold

CC Flowers

Sneaky challenge this month ;) To use any flower EXCEPT stamped flowers! I did a set of 3 x 3 cards, each featuring a textured background and a flower of some kind. I think my fave is the button flower, but the crocheted flowers are fun too ;)

Sunny Gardens

Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, & Daffodil Delight is the June Creative Crew color combo (can we say bright?) I used my Manhattan Flower B/S folder with vellum for the roses, did a watercolor wash with Peach Parfait and shimmer paint, used Bella Toile in the background, and used the sentiment from Sense of Time - whew! She be busy!

So I've Wrapped Up My Pirate Tour

How about some "just for fun" things from the May Creative Crew round? Kraft, Burgundy, & Artichoke for the Live, Love, Laugh card. And Kraft, Peach, Black for the sympathy card - I'm kinda hooked on Kraft/Crumb Cake right now!

Next tour, June Creative Crew ;)

Swiming or Flying Turtle?

Here's the story, we were challenged to make something inspired by Davy Jones Locker or Under The Sea. I decided to use this digi image to make my daughters birthday card, however she saw it before I had a chance to hide it and she laughed at it asking why I had a turtle flying in the sky above the trees.....

I tried to explain it's a swimming sea turtle and those are coral and sea grass, she continued to laugh and and said it still looked like a flying turtle.....

She got a flying turtle for a birthday card anyway!!!!!

Spotting Shells

Don't you just love the spotlight technique? I had received these shell images from my WishRak buds (sorry I don't know where it's from) but it's tooooo perfect on Shimmer paper and spotlighting just one portion of the shells!

Join Me for a Cuppa?

I don't use Alcohol ink very often as it is not a product my beloved SU doesn't offer, however we were challenged to do an alcohol in technique. I simply did an alcohol ink Polished Stone (which really is much more vivid than water based ink!) on a cup shaped card, then embossed the Damask stamp from SU onto it.

Plant Hope

LOTS of sponging, kind of "zindorfish" I sponged various shades of blue, masked out a moon, used the palm tree from Plant Hope.

Where Ever You May Roam

Make a card with a Map! I chose SU! DSP with a digi compass image. I used chalks to give it a soft feel, so dad's father's day card is done :)

She's Sparkly

Using Bling? Easy Peasy! What's more blingy than SU's new glitter paper and some shimmer spray :)

When the Going gets Tough

The Tough go stamp! We were challenged to make a "tough but girly" card. I found this free Rosie the Riveter clip art and decided to use it (so really no stamping involved!) I plan to send this to my neice who's having a hard time adjusting to the life on her own (kind of a welcome to the adult world card)
