Hi there!

Hi there!  I am here with today's new Retro Sketch, using the Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit.

Here's my card...

I layered up the papers from the kit and then added in a piece of vellum.  The adorable alphabet stickers that are included are such a fun shade of yellow and match all the papers included in the kit, so well.  There is an awesome pack of enamel dots too, so I added some of those in.  I wanted the vellum to lift of the page a little, so I attached it using only 2 staples at the top.

Friends like you...





I've been seeing some amazing blog hop cards today using the most gorgeous colors....and I couldn't help myself!  I had to play too!  

IMG_9697

I used 2 new sets from this months release, Oopsie Daisy and Wet Paint III.  I stamped the flower outline in Aqua Mist and the inside polka petals in Melon Berry.  The stems are stamped in Simply Chartreuse and the sentiment in Versafine Black Onyx.

I used a little 1/2" hole punch to cut the centers and then added in these little clear dots I have had for a million years.  I knew keeping them around was a good thing!  I attached them to the card front with a glue dot.

A fun white card...

Happy Saturday already!  :)  Where did the week go?  Well I will tell you where mine went.  Soccer Camp.  Tennis Camp.  Band Camp.  T-ball practice and Softball practice.  And an extra day of work.  And laundry.  Laundry never goes away.  I was happy to sit down and make this card last night and dust off the work space a little.  So here is what I made...

I know Mother's Day is over but this sentiment from the new Monthly Moments: May is gorgeous!  And that little butterfly?  SO cute!  I inked it up with Berry Sorbet and then some Pure Poppy on the edges. Then I lightly misted the stamp with water before I stamped it.  I added in a couple pearls to dress it up a little....

This card is based on this week's Retro Sketch...


Stop over to the Retro Sketches blog to see what the other girls have whipped up for today.  

I am off to a golf tournament today.  The NCAA College Finals are being held here and we have to check it out.  

Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping in!

Stay cool...

I'm back with another card for the May release over at PTI.  This new popsicle set is SO cute!  It's called Summer Sweetness and it's so sweet isn't it?

IMG_9684

I die cut and stamped 6 popsicles and then added a sentiment and bow to the green one.  I felt like they needed to be grounded, so I added in a striped line in the background using Background Basics: Super Stripes.

It's already warm here in Kansas, so we go through plenty of popsicles here at my house.  Looks like its going to be a hot summer.  Since we ended school early, we are now full swing into Band camp, Tennis camp, Soccer camp and tball and softball.  Yikes....typing that list of stuff out makes it a little more scary.  But we are having fun so far.  We have lots of summer left to find stuff to do.

Hope you are all doing well.  Thanks for stoping in!

i love love this set....

So there is this new stamp set from PTI called Birthday Classics: June Mini Stamp Set.  I sorta love it.  I have lots of June birthdays and its all sunny and fun and stuff.  So here is what I made with it...

IMG_9677

I masked off and stamped the sentiment, first in Hawaiian Shores, the sun in Harvest Gold, June in Berry Sorbet and the rest in Simply Chartreuse.  I stamped it directly on the card base but then masked on top of that and stamped the sun rays from Hello Sunshine.  I wanted there to be some variation of color so I went back in and stamped on top of the rays with another layer of color.

IMG_9678

This would have been a good card to do a video on.  I am trying to be brave and do more videos, as I do get requests for them.  So maybe that will be on my summer bucket list...to make a video or 3.  :)

Hope you are having a great week!  Thanks for stopping in!

Simon Says June Card Kit...

Have you seen the June card kit over at Simon Says?  Well, if you haven't here is a quick look...


And here is my card...

IMG_9681

I heat embossed the scribbles and then took a blending tool with some Schoolhouse Red ink and added in the color.  I cut them out by hand and then layered them up with the leaves that are stamped right on the card front.  I stamped the sentiment and the little curly's in Versamark black onyx.  I completed the card by layering it all on a kraft base.
