Happy long weekend! I had a super busy week at work as it was my first week back after my vacation. I am glad it is a long weekend. I took the kids to the park this morning and then I had a chance to make some cards this afternoon. Here is one that I made for this week's CASE this sketch challenge.

Here is our sketch:

I used my PTI Star Prints and KIS Birthday stamps. For the stars, I colored them with three different SU markers and then fussy cut them. I also used my PTI Wood Impression coverplate for the card base and the banner is from Reverse Confetti. Enjoy your weekend!

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Tropical Trip

Hello,

I came across the photo for this week's Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge and I just had to play along. Check out the inspiration photo:


 

I love the colors in this one and as soon as I saw "Tobago" on the top sign I knew I had to join in as my mom is from Trinidad and Tobago!


Here is my card:


I pulled out an old SU stamp set called Seeing Spots to stamp the background and then used my PTI Summer Sweetness stamps and die. I added some clear embossing powder to the popsicles for some shine and the patterned paper is from Echo Park.

Stamp-a-faire Timer Challenge

Hello!

Today is Stamp-a-faire over at PTI. I don't have much time to participate in the festivities today but I had a chance to put together a card this afternoon. The Morning Timer Challenge gave you a choice of 5 sketches and 5 color combos. You are challenged to make a card in under 20 minutes. My time was 6:43. A record for me as most of my cards take MUCH longer than that! Here are the ones I picked:

SAF-Color-Inspiration-5           SAF-Sketch-Inspiration-4


 And here is my card:


I used my PTI Star Prints and Keep it Simple Thank-You stamp sets. This was quick, easy and fun! Hope you are enjoying the challenges! Have a great weekend!

A Little Something Neutral

Hello, here is a card I made this weekend:



I used a white base and added several Fancy Pants patterned papers and a piece of velum which I embossed. I also used Reverse Confetti's Tag Me die and the sentiment is from the Label Me stamp set, which I embossed with some black embossing powder. I also added a cream colored button and some twine.

Here is my inspiration for this card:

I was inspired by the inspiration photo over at The Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge. I loved all the neutral colors in the photo and the few pops of black.
I was also inspired by this month's sketch over at the Reverse Confetti blog.
I am linking up my card for both of these challenges!

Make It Monday #174: Diamond Wallpaper Stamping

Hello! I am popping in with a card for this week's Make it Monday. I have not done much background stamping so this was fun and a little different for me.

Here is my card:



I used two triangles from my PTI Sketched Shapes stamp set to create a diamond and the little circles are from PTI's Ruby Rose. I embossed the sentiment white and added some foam adhesive to it for some dimension.
