I love the cute clear stamp's from Darcie's Heart and Home. I went a little crazy at her booth at a stamping expo, and I am excited to share my first creation with her stamps.
I am playing along today with Retro Sketches #123. I am a big fan of sketches, because they give me a jumping off point - I know sometimes the end product does not always match the sketch to a "T" but I think this one is pretty close. I was using up some scraps of my Chantilly paper pack from Close to My Heart. Typically I am not a pastel person, but for some reason the soft colors of this paper pack drew me. I especially love how they pop off the kraft cardstock, which is one of my favorite types of card bases!
I am also playing along with Cards Galore blog, use a stamp. :)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE hexagons. I am addicted. I have dies, punches and stamps in hexagon shapes. Just my fave right now!! So, I wanted to make a card using my latest hex-y purchase, the Epiphany Crafts hexagon punch and the epoxy shapes. The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to use summer colors. Love it! CAS #133. The epoxys also count towards the Let's Be Clear challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
Here it is:
And... I used one of my super cute sentiment sets from Paper Smooches - my favorite!
Whew! I think things are settling down for us (again!)
I found this great kit club, Back Porch Memories Kit Club. They are hosting a guest designer call for August, and I thought I'd throw my hat in.
I decided to make a layout about Archery. I really fell in love with this sport after trying it at my son's Cub Scout camp. :) I actually ended up being the Archery Range Master at Day Camp this year, since I love it so much!
