Crazy 4 Challenges/Can You Case It


Hello everyone!

This week is bittersweet for me here, over on the blog - as the spring is finally heading in to warmer weather it means the golf resort is open again - and my weekends of freedom will soon come to an end! I always look forward to this time of year - but sadly, I must say goodbye to other loves. 
This will be my last post as a DT member for the Can You Case It Challenge team. With my even busier schedule I can only commit to playing with the challenges on a casual basis. This hurts my heart :( 


I decided this week to combine two challenges in to one - as the Crazy for Challenges girls have a wonderful color challenge happening, and my Can You Case It team has a wonderful sketch! 
Here is my design!


Over at C4C - someone special is celebrating a May birthday - emerald green is the focus this week! 

Stampin Up has a new Annual catalog debuting June 1st and I combined new items with some faves that are going to be carried over for another year!

Stamps: Sunshine Sayings, Garden in Bloom, Touches of Texture 
Ink: Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Versamark
Paper: Tranquil Tide CS, Eastern Palace DSP, Designer Vellum (CTMH) 
Gold embossing powder/ribbon

I am SO thrilled with some of the new catalog items - I am sure you will be too!

Thanks for stopping in!

Love, Peace n' Ink

Savvy 7-April Showers


Hello everyone!

I have a pretty card to share with you that I made for the Savvy 7 Blog Hop! 

This month, we are designing our projects around the theme "April Showers/May Flowers"

Well, I skipped the flowers this time :) 


I needed to create a little "pick-me-up" for someone who could use a lift, and I thought this sentiment and image from Stampin Up!'s Beautiful You stamp set was perfect. I was happy to find out that it was not retiring - there are so many ways you can use it,  it really is a versatile stamp set!
I also added a bit of embossing with a folder from Taylored Expressions. I really kept this card simple, and that watercolour with my Zigs was quick and easy.

Be sure to check out all of the hoppers with the Savvy 7 !
Thanks for stopping by!

Love, Peace n' Ink

Crazy 4 Challenges - Thank You!


Hello and welcome!

This week - I have a sweet thank you card for you and the Crazies - using Stampin' Up!'s classic stamp set called "Sheltering Tree"


This is such a versatile stamp set - and it is well-loved... I have used it for every occasion and it is definitely a go-to stamp for thank you's of all kinds. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Atlantic Hearts #210


Happy Monday!

Today I am designing for Atlantic Hearts - and we have another fabulous sketch for you to play with!



I decided to flip the sketch and I used an awesome stamp from Unity called Let's Get Sip Faced - the Versamark ink on the Kraft cardstock really turned out more subtle than I had hoped but the card kinda grew on me ;)

Don't forget to play along with us this week - and be sure to leave me some love below to let me know you stopped by!

Love, Peace n' Ink
