Thanks a bunch for Clearly Whimsy & Muse


Hi everyone!
My card today is inspired by Vicki over at MUSE Challenge blog.  I was inspired by the colors and the triangles.  This adorable mushroom stamp is from Into the Woods by Clearly Whimsy Stamps.  The sentiment comes from the same set.  So cute!

Here is Vicki's card...

Merry Monday #157


 Hi everyone!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Bonnie challenges us to create a card using wet or dry embossing.



I used both wet and dry embossing on my card.  It is hard to tell in the photo but the verse is embossed using gold embossing powder.  The dry embossing is from an embossing folder by SU!
 Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog. I hope you will join us!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Time for another challenge at showCASe your style.
This week we have a color challenge for you.

and here is my card...


I love this color combination and was totally inspired by the paint stripes so I pulled out my Distressed Background and Ink splats stamp set and went to work stamping in the matching colors.  The sentiment is from Into the Wood stamp set.

We'd love to see your card inspired by the colors!
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

The Card Concept #34

Hi friends!
It is time for another fabulous challenge at The Card Concept!


 This week we hope you are inspired by the photo below.



For my Clean and Simple card I stamped the bloom from Altenew onto pink polka dot DSP. I used my new dies to cut it out.  After stamping the stripes in light blue, mimicking the tag on the package, I attached the bloom and stamped the sentiment.

Stop over to The Card Concept blog to see what the other girls have created in all of the different styles.  I just love this challenge just for this reason!  It's great to see all the different takes on one inspiration photo.
Thanks so much for stopping in!  I hope you get the chance to play along too!
