Summer at the beach.

 Hi there.   Dawn here to share my inspiration card for you.  


SheepSkiDesigns is our sponsor for June and it's always wonderful to work with those beautiful images and we're sure you do too.

The theme is "Summer Days" so please make a card that you feel defines summer for you.

SheepSkiDesigns is offering a prize of three images of your choice!



I took the image  Beach Hut Holiday - image #158 and added it twice to my card, flipping the second one to be the mirror image.  I did this as I wanted to make a mini slimline card.   I used a Gina K Master Layout to cut out the panel.  I used Prismacolor pencils to colour them huts.  I then used my Scan'n'Cut to die cut the Summer sentiment.  

Do come and share you summer projects with us.

Beach Hut Fun

Hi! It's Sue here. Our current challenge is SUMMER DAYS. What do you think of when you hear "summer days"? I think of relaxing at the beach with sand between my toes. Ahhh - I can almost feel like I'm there. Our sponsor this month is Sheep Ski Designs who is offering our winner their choice of three images from their Etsy store.


Here's my "summer days" card


I used Sheep Ski Designs' Beach Hut Holiday - image #158 which I sized up and printed on 80 lb cardstock with my inkjet printer. I added color with Copic markers and die cut the panel and black mat using Waffle Flower's A2 Layers dies and Additional A2 Layers dies. For a complete list of the many Copic markers I used to add color to the image, please check out my foleysfriend blog.

We'd love to see how you're inspired by "summer days"!

Sweet Wishes

 Hello there,

Cindy here to share another Summer Days' card.


I colored the Strawberry Season digital stamp from SheepSkiDesigns and colored it with alcohol markers.  I printed multiple images, so I colored and hand cut an extra strawberry and adhere to the main panel with form adhesive to give a bit of dimension.  I really like how it turned out, and I hope you're inspired to join in our June challenge.

SheepSkiDesigns is our June sponsor, our challenge winner will receive 3 digital stamps. 
 

For full supply list, visit me at Escape To Stamping.

See you over at the challenge gallery!!

Her row of butterflies with the hidden "gorgeous" really made a statement!

Love Ya - no matter what.

Hi, Dawn here with some inspiration for you.  Cas-ual Fridays Stamps is our sponsor

Our theme - Anything Goes!! 

(Just remember to include a die cut &/or use an embossing folder.)


Prize - $20 gift card to their store (USA or Canadian resident only), randomly picked from eligible May entries 

My card today uses older Cas-ual Fridays stamp and die... but there are lots of great product on the website (Here)



For my card I have used a Cas-ual Fridays "Catherine's Background" stamped in 4 purple inks from Altenew.  I inked it up and lightly spritzed with water and stamped onto some white cardstock.  I trimmed the panel down so it would fit onto the purple die cut panel.  The scalloped panel is from Gina K Master Layout #4.  I added dimension to the stamped panel with some cheap card stock.   The sentiment is Cas-ual Fri Dies - Girlfriend was die cut from the same purple as scalloped die and layered up with 3 layers.  The sub-sentiment is from the Girlfriend stamp set.  I added a few die cut flowers (left over from the other days die cutting) for embellishment. 

Thanks for stopping and we hope to see you in our May Gallery!

Dawn and the Divas.

Happy B-Day 2 You Card with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Hello Crafty Friends. Can you believe that it's already May? Our challenge this month is sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps who will be giving our winner a $20 gift code to their store. This prize is restricted to only US and Canadian participants. 


Our challenge this month is 
ANYTHING GOES

Here's my card


For my card, I used CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Bold Wishes stamp set and Funky Square dies. Sadly, both are now retired. I stamped the background using my MISTI, which made the lining up of the stamps really easy. For detailed instructions on how I created this card, please visit me at my foleysfriend blog.

We'd love to see your die cut creations. Please add them to our challenge gallery.
