Papertrey Ink August 2016 Blog Hop

I am participating in the Papertrey Ink August 2016 Blog Hop where we have been given this lovely image to inspire us this month.

August Blog Hop

I picked just a couple of the most saturated colors from the image to use on this card. The largest paint stroke image from the Brushed Off Stamp set is inked with Berry Sorbet and partially stamp twice on a white panel. I wanted the brush stroke going both ways, so stamped in one direction first and then turned and flipped the stamp in the other direction.

A large navy Hugs die cut is place over the brush stroke and a couple of sentiment stamps from Big Hugs finishes this card off.

The gallery is always full of beautiful cards for the monthly Blog Hop, so I'm off to check them out!

Muse #180

School has started and things are slowly moving into more of a regular routine around our house which means I've managed to find a little more crafting time this week. Marilyn's inky background on her Guest Designer card for Muse #180 caught my eye right away and I started inking, smooshing & spraying until I had a panel I liked.

A floral image is heated embossed several times down the left side of the panel and a sentiment created with a die cut and heat embossed phrase on the right side. 

I hope to see lots of inky panels at the Muse this week!

CASology Week 212: FUN

Welcome to Week 212 at CASology!

I don't think we could have an easier Cue Card to work with this week, it is so wide open for interpretation! My husband and I recently had a quick little trip to San Francisco and it reminded me of how much fun he is to be around when he isn't distracted by work. My next goal is to get him all to myself in New York City.

The Altenew Sketchy NYC skyline is stamped in black and rainbow colored with Copic markers. Before the finished panel is popped up on the black card base, a few sentiments from MFT Off the Chart stamp set were heat embossed along the edge.

Check out the terrific Design Team cards for more ideas on where FUN can take you!
