Happy Mother's Day ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge




 
Hi everyone!  I'm back with the newest challenge over on the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…
 

 


 I couldn't wait to get creating after seeing this photo...I love all those pretty girlie colours and patterns.  I focused on the polka dots for my background, the lace (aka the doily on my card), the flowers, and all the colours on those charming pillows.

Mother's Day Wishes



Hello friends!  Yikes! Where have I been?  Just busy with work and family and getting some Mother's Day cards ready to take into work.  I'll be sharing them over the next few weeks, starting with this one for the PTI Blog Hop today.  Here's the inspiration photo...


I was not feeling the literal meaning of this image, so I went "impressionistic," that is, my impression of the colours, the circles, and stitched lines, all on a neutral background.  I really love how the Rosie Posie flowers came together :)  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Thanks for Everything



Hey there friends!  I'm sharing a card I made for the PTI Make it Monday challenge.  We are being asked to use a script sentiment with ink and a brush to make a watercolour effect.  What do you think?  Does it look like I hand painted the "thanks"?  I think so!  Thanks for stopping by!  We have been experiencing gorgeous weather here in the interior of BC...27 degrees Celsius, the perfect Moe temperature!  Hope you are enjoying some spring weather too :)

An Amazing Birthday ~ Viva La Verve


Happy Sunday everyone!  Today I'm sharing the card I made for the latest Viva La Verve sketch.  I just love the way Stacey layers patterned paper so I channeled her to create this card :)  Want to play along?  Head over to the Viva La Verve blog for more inspiration and all the details on how you could win some Verve this month!

Just a Note ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge



Hi everyone!  I'm back with the newest challenge over on the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…


When I saw the gorgeous script in the photo, I immediately thought of my new Concord & 9th Sophisticated Script Stamp Set.  When I saw how Laurie Willison was using it, I had to have my own.  It's so easy to join the letters and make it look hand written.  A little gold flourish cut from Verve's Flourished Tag Die Set was the perfect embellishment.

Many Blessings on Your Birthday




 Hello everyone!  Popping in with a card I've made for the PTI Create Along with Us challenge.  I just love the soft look of Melissa's card...

I tried to recreate the frame by using 2 stitched rectangles and then a similar layout and colours.  I can't wait to get those bold sentiments on the 15th!  Thanks for stopping by!  If you are itching to buy some Papertrey Ink, check out my Papertrey Ink For Sale page!

Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until May 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!

A little tropical flair is in the air for inspiration this month. Bright pinks, aquas, golden tones and a touch of white promise easy breezy days ahead. There's no script for this inspiration... go floral, keep it modern, follow our colour pattern or forge your own path, just show us your tropical chic inspired creations.

Oh, what an inspiration photo!  I used some new stamps with some older dies to create my thank you card.  First up, I die cut my banners from the Flag it Die Set and the Scroll Die.
Then I used a couple of sentiments from Simply Amazing along with a Fantastic die cut using the Amazing Adjectives Word Die Set.  I hope you'll play along with use this month!  Head over to the Verve blog for more details or just link up your card below!
