Missing You

Happy Saturday! 

I'm here today to share a card I made a few days ago.  We've been here in Hawaii for about 4 months now and I've been feeling a little homesick being almost 5000 miles away from home.  I was fortunate to have my parents and sister be able to visit last month, but it was especially sad when it was time for them to leave.  So I made this card to send to family back home: 

This was a very simple card to make- just some masking and stamping in different ink colors.  I also decorated the envelope using the same ink colors. 

I'll be linking this card up to this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes

Hope you enjoy the weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sending Sunshine

Happy Wednesday! 

Today I just wanted to pop in and share a new card that I made.  It uses one of my favorite Penny Black stamps

I started by inking a cardstock panel with festive berries, wild honey, and mustard seed distress inks.  I then did some second-generation stamping with the flower in mustard seed ink before stamping the entire image in black.  The sentiment is selectively inked from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings set. 

I'll be linking up this card to this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: use products available in the Simon Says Stamp store.  I've included links to SSS for all the main supplies mentioned above. 

ETA: I'll also be linking up this card to the Color Media Challenge over at the Moxie Fab World blog.  It's a fun one! 

Thanks for visiting!  Hope to see you back soon :)

Lawnscaping Challenge #66: Monochromatic

Are you ready for a little challenge?  This week's theme at the Lawnscaping blog is to create a monochromatic project: 

Ack!  Is that what you're thinking??  I sure thought that!  There are so many colors-- and about a million shades of each color-- so to chose just that's a challenge!  I struggled with it, but here's what I came up with: 

For this card, I went with a neutral color scheme.  I used Lawn Fawn's So Thankful mini set to create this card.  I was inspired by the thought of fall, as I hear that the air is becoming cool and crisp back in Virginia.  Here, on the other hand, is the land of endless summer, so I'll just have to pretend that the leaves are going to change colors soon and the crisp air is around the corner.  I'll just live vicariously through my cards ;) 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you'll play along with us!  Lawn Fawn is our sponsor and is offering a stamp set to the lucky winner!

Lawnscaping Challenge #65: Favorite Things

Happy Monday! 

What better way to start off a new month then to gather up your favorite stamping supplies and make a new project!  This week's challenge at the Lawnscaping blog is all about using your favorite products: 

For my card, I used one of my first Lawn Fawn purchases: Let It Snow.  I just love this stamp set!  It's definitely not just a holiday stamp set.  All of the images are so versatile and can be used for a variety of occasions and seasons.  So "a few of my favorite things" are simply using stamps in interesting ways and using lots of beautiful ink colors.  Here's my card: 

I'll admit, it was kind've a pain stamping this one out!  I used a piece of tape to mask off the tree trunk-- every time-- and used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position each triangle correctly.  I thought I would be able to eyeball the stamping on my first attempt, but you can image how well that went!  The sentiment is from the Summertime Charm set. 

I hope you feel inspired to join in the fun this week!  Our sponsor is the always awesome Simon Says Stamp!  The winner will receive a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp
