Paper Players #359

Image
Welcome everyone!
Today I am playing along with the challenge from The Paper Players - it's a fantastic sketch challenge courtesy of Laurie!




I missed last week's challenge and I was SO disappointed - but I had saved that cute polka-dot Coral paper for another project - and luckily it was PERFECT for my design for the challenge!
Here's the details:
Stamp: Katzelkraft Ink: Black Archival (SU) Paper: Pool Party, White (SU), Coral Print (Crate Paper)  Fun Stuff: Balloon Punch (SU), Embossing Folder (Taylored Expressions)  Detailed Floral Thinlits  Die(SU)
I love this versatile sketch and I think I just might whip up another design this week with it, it was that much fun to use!
Thanks for stopping by - and be sure to say a quick hello to let me know you stopped in!

Just Because-It is Wednesday!

Happy Hump Day!
Today  I am sharing a quick little design I created! 


Wedding season isn't quite over, even though we already have had a few chilly nights here. Harvest will be in full swing soon! I created this card for a lucky Bride & Groom in mind!
I had a little help with some goodies from Stampin Up - including my Lovely Words thinlits and Sunshine Wishes dies! There was NO stamps needed for this card - just a simple wash of some Blushing Bride ink with my Aqua Painter on to a piece of watercolour paper, and mounted on some of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper - I love it !

My Muse!

Welcome back to another week! Mondays can be a bit of a drag - but this week I have a ton of fun stuff happening! Everything from family visiting, to concerts - summer has been hectic, but fun! 
I took some time out to get up to my studio and design this "SWEET" little card - I used some Unity goodness for this - and, I got some creative inspiration from a rad designer named Tenia Nelson. Her style ROCKS! Tenia always uses a lot of white space in her design - but her style is so unique! 



I used some Nuvo embossing mousse and a stencil from Tim Holtz to add a bit of texture - I really need to play with it more often - it was fun! 
I hope to have more time in my studio as the summers winds down - thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) This Sketch #233

Image
Did I say how much I am LOVING my week off?! No?! Well ... 2 ... TWO - inky projects in one week - and I still have time to play! It's been a blast!
I created this project to play along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!



I am loving my watercolours right now, and pulled out my Pool Party, Lost Lagoon andIsland Indigo inks from SU for that moody blue background!  I saw the awesome card DT member Donna created with the balloon, and I knew I wanted to use her as my muse - but I saw clouds :) 
I couldn't resist using more of my Unity Stamps for this project - I got both the image and sentiment in a grab bag - lucky me! I added a Wink of Stella to my Daffodil Delight and Fresh Fig butterfly, up close it just SPARKLES! I added those sequins from Neat & Tangled for just a bit more shine. 
Let me know you were here - leave some love - Thanks for stopping by!

An Inky Long Weekend!

Hello everyone! 
Today was the end to a Long Weekend here in my neck of the woods - and while normally that would make me sad, I began holidays on Friday! I am so grateful for a whole week of to relax, and unwind!
We kicked off this weekend with my son coming for a visit - and the time is always too short! But he promised me he will be back soon. :)
It gave me time to get up into my studio today - and admittedly, I have not been up there for quite some time. There were days I would walk in and look around and sadly, my mojo was gone.  Poof.  Nothing.
But today I made up for it.! I created some wonderful designs that I was happy with - and when I noticed the Paper Players Challenge this week - I knew I wanted to play along and create something to get my mojo back on course! 

And here is my design!


I started to play with a piece of white CS and my Tim Holtz distress inks, creating that sweet little layer that resembled wood. I stamped a CTMH image I just love and combined with a  wonde…
