ShowCASe your Style #16

Hi everyone!
Time for another challenge at showCASe your style.
This week we have an inspiration challenge for you.

 and here is my card...

I used the stamp set Say Cheese to stamp the film strips in gray ink on the background.  I stamped the sentiment using Ombre inks.  I used the direct to paper technique to create the mat for the sentiment.  I added some gold thread behind and wooden stars as accents.

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

Stamps:  Say Cheese (Clearly Whimsy)
Ink:  Smoky Slate

The Card Concept #36

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

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

I was inspired by the yummy looking cupcakes and the colors.  I used the stamp set Yum Yum Yum by Clearly Whimsy Stamps.  The cupcake was just perfect.  I colored with my Copics added a little strip of black for a little contrast.
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!

Stamps:  Yum Yum Yum (Clearly Whimsy)
Ink:  Memento Black
Paper:  White, Black
Accessories:  Copic, Rhinestone

Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Hi everyone!
**This is my second post for today, please scroll down for my Merry Monday post.**
I am happy to be participating in Papertrey Inks May Blog Hop!  
When I saw the inspiration photo I just had to join in.

Here is my card!

Inspired by this photo:

Yep, rainbow colors - my favorite!
I haven't done a shaker card in a while so thought this was the perfect opportunity.  Love this pencil set and how the sequins mimic the blocks in the photo.

**ETA this over at CAS(E) this Sketch!
Thank you, Leigh!

Merry Monday #160

This week Karren challenges us to create a card with newsprint on it.

I used some newsprint DSP by Stampin' Up! for my card and Papertrey Ink dies and stamps.  I kept my card pretty simple to let the newsprint take center stage.

 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!

Stamps:  Sparkle & Shine: Holiday Additions
Ink:  Versafine black

Happy Birthday & Hello

Happy Saturday everyone!
I am popping in real quick with a couple cards for The Gossip Column #2.  

I used Scenery: Rectangled & Triangled by Winnie & Walter to create my focal point.  Embossed the sentiment from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy using white embossing powder on pink cardstock.

Second card using the same stamp sets...

Before you go I want to share a sneak peek of the DT's cards for this week's "Either/Or" challenge at StampNation
We had to chose one item from each category and couldn't use the other on our cards.  
I chose rectangle, sequins, die cut & gold.  Any guesses on which one is mine?
