The Light You Shine

Good morning! I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week our challenge is all about summer. Here is the inspiration 

Here is what I created 

I decided to break open my SU set High Tide and create with it. I found some inspiration from a card on Pinterest. My card base is Whisper White and the next layer is started with Whisper White and then sponged the sky using Pacific Point and the sand using Sahara Sand and stamped the sand with Baked Brown Sugar. For the next layer I die cut the sun rays using the SU Thinlet and sponged with YoYo Yellow and added on top of the sky and sand layer and stamped the birds in the upper right hand side. Next I die cut a smaller stitched rectangle and sponged with Pacific Point and then stamped the sentiment on the right and the birds on the left and added this on top of the sun rays. To finish I stamped the lighthouse using my Misti and inks, Real Red and Stazon black. After stamping I fussy cut the lighthouse and added to the layer with the sentiment using pop dots. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Create A LifeĀ 

Good morning! What a beautiful day here in Northern Virginia. The temperature was mid 60’s when I woke up. I love mornings like this. I hope all the dads out there had a wonderful Father’s Day!

Today I am here to share my creation for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  We have a fun color challenge for you to play along with. Here is the inspiration 


I decided to make a tag for the challenge 


I started with a Manila file folder and used my TH tag dies to make a tag. After die cutting the tag I used SU Island Indigo and Colorbox Berry inks and sponged the background on front and back. I then stamped the lady using a set from Unity Stamp Co called She Never Says Never in momento luxe black and then clear embossed her. Next I took a piece of kraft cardstock and layered some lace and SU green ribbon and then attached it to the bottom of my tag. I stamped the sentiment from the Unity set on another piece of kraft and then fussy cut it and added using pop dots. To finish I used some silver metallic twine and tucked it in right behind the sentiment and added some more of the lace in the tag hole at the top. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Your A Classic

Good morning! Today I am sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. The Inspiration for this week is Masculine 


Here is my card

I used one of my older Stampin Up sets called Classic Pickups. My card base is basic black with the next layer in real red embossed with a diamond plate folder.  For the top layers I used basic black and cork distressed around the edges. I used a we r memory keepers corner chomper on all the corners. I stamped the truck and colored with my SU markers and then fussy cut and adhered to my card using pop dots. To finish I wrapped some twine around the top layers and then added my sentiment stamped and punched out with the designer label punch and then distressed the edges. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time
