Paper Craft Crew #285 - Some Color Inspiration!

Welcome back, and Happy Wednesday!
The paper Craft Crew has something colourful this week to inspire you! 
Our color challenge is perfect for spring!

I decided to keep it simple this week and design and keep my layers  to a minimum. My watercolor front was first inked up with a Unity stamp  set called Only You - I used Versamark and heat embossed with  white embossing powder. My color splashes were SU's Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight,  and Perfect Plum - it was as simple as using an Aqua Painter to the ink pad!  Finally, the sentiment from Unity's kit was inked up with Staz-On...  that black just won't run!  A few tiny Nuvo drops and some water drop beads from Pretty Pink Posh and  this soft n' sweet card was finished!
Be sure to check out all of the talented Design Team member's cards - everyone put a totally  different spin on the colors this week - these unique cards will get your creative juices flowing!

Stamp Ink Paper #142 - Color Challenge!

Is it Friday yet?!?
I wish it was - this week over in my "real life", I feel like I am spinning my wheels - I work as a bookkeeper, and Income Tax season is in full swing!! Serenity NOW!
This week's Stamp Ink Paper challenge is an easy one! We have a color challenge for you and it is SO fun and bright - you will have a blast with this!
Here is my design!

I kept things super simple this week and created a kid-approved card using Stampin Up's  No Bones About It stamp set. I cannot believe that I actually had never inked it up until now  (confessions of a hoarder #28217 - I bought it when it first came out in the catty!!) I need to use it more - it is PERFECT for kid's cards... and someone older than dirt ;)
Thanks for stopping by for all the details - and be sure to go to our challenge link and  show off your creations!! Click on the image to whisk you over there!

Inspired By - H is for Hoppy!

Hello stamping friends! Welcome back - and happy Thursday!! 
It is time for another Inspired By challenge - this week, we are hopping right along with an awesome cue card to inspire you!

How does this cue card inspire you? It just shouts SPRING to me - and the sweet little bunny caught my eye! Here is what I designed for you!

I used a fun little stamp set from Simon Says Stamp - called "Some Bunny"  and all of the paper pieces I used in my design were paper scraps from my desk - every thing from Stampin Up to Echo Park. :) I used and unbranded oval die to create that "egg" layer. I think my little grandson, Knox will be getting this card as part of his Easter surprise. He deserves a sweet little treat!
It's time for YOU to play along with us! Link up your paper craft creation over on our challenge - you can find the link HERE!!
I would LoVe if you let me know you stopped by ~ leave me some love below!

Paper Craft Crew #284

Welcome back to another Paper Craft Crew challenge!
We have a fun sketch for you this week! Check out what I created!

This design has so many layers! I dug into my Stampin Up stash and used the stamp set Falling Flower and May Flowers framelits to create some fun blooms and greenery! A quick bit of colouring with my Zigs worked wonders ! 
The tag was created using a My Favourite Things tag die - the shimmery paper has been stamped using SU's Beautiful You stamp set! I also used the Woodgrain Texture paper with a piece of fun red checked paper from SEI and a piece of Chevron woodman paper from CTMH's Fundamentals kit.  That burlap trim was in my stash and sadly... it was the last of it. I really wish I could find more!

Verve Diva Inspirations March Challenge

Sunday Funday - today was a day to play! Heavenly!  I didn't even get dressed today! It was glorious! To be able to stay in my comfy p.j's all day was a total treat - and while I would love to say I got to craft the day away in my studio, I found some balance with a bit of chores like laundry, mopping floors, and dusting. 
I had some crafty free-time and decided to play with some of my spring goodies in my stash! 
I designed this super-sweet tag today for the Verve March challenge!

 ( I am SO SO happy they are bringing back their monthly inspiration challenges - because they were one of my FAVES!) 
I decided for this project I wanted to make a fun spring tag! I found a sweet little stamp from Unity called Little Bunny For You - and inked him up, using minimal colouring with my Zigs! I added a wee bit of Fun Stampers Journey silks for that vibrant touch of yellow! I really wanted to  play with some stencilling,  so I chose a Tim Holtz stencil from the #26 collection. I used di…

Inspired By - Get Lucky!

Hello lovely people!
This week has been a DOOZY! We have had storms brewing - wind and snow - just a typical day here on the Prairies! It has got to end soon, I just know it!
This week the Inspired By Design Team is feeling LUCKY 🍀
Here's our cue card.... and my fun little project!

I used a fun little sticker that Laurel Seabrook sent me - I literally attached it to a piece of luscious green scrap paper on my desk from an earlier project (see?! Never throw ANYTHING away! haha)  I also had a scrap of some fun Little Yellow Bicycle paper in the bottom of my scrap bin! My little pot of gold was created using Stampin Up!'s Curvy Keepsake die - punched a circle out and adhered some clear acetate to create the window  and show-off those yummy treats! I used a heart punch for the sweet little shamrock! Easy-peasy! 
Now it's your turn - I hope our cue card inspires you to make some crafty goodness! Be  sure to link it up to our challenge!
