Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Celebrate

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

source: refinery29.com

To celebrate the Curtain Call's third anniversary, the Celebrate challenge will run the entire month of July!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!


I die cut three of the Simon Says Stamp fun balloons in different patterned paper, added some baker's twine strings, and clustered them over a few other layers of paper.  The Simon Says Stamp sentiment was stamped in black and placed offset with a mini staple!  

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!

Reverse Confetti - July SFYTT



Hey there, stamping friends!


There's a new Sketch For You To Try up and running at Reverse Confetti today! 
 Check out July's SFYTT!


Here are all the FUN Reverse Confetti goodies that I used on my card!





This card is full of summer fun and LOADS of Reverse Confetti!  I stamped the adorable Here We Go plane in a coral/pink ink, then die cut with the coordinating Here We Go Confetti Cuts.  The Here We Go sentiment and dotty dot loopy loo were stamped over the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts flag and the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts scallop, then layered over a trimmed Sweet Treat Tent Confetti Cuts panel.  Love how all of these 'Fetti fun frolics work together!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
Head on over to the Reverse Confetti blog to see what the other gals whipped up with the sketch!

Reverse Confetti - You're So Cool!


Hey there, stamping friends!
With the summer heat, what better way to cool down a bit than with some Reverse Confetti goodies!


Here are the stamps and Confetti Cuts that I used on my card today!




This card came together in a snap!  Using Bo Bunny's Lemonade Stand Collection, die cut two of the Documented Confetti Cuts rectangles in some fun bold colored papers, two of the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts in some chalkboard themed paper and two of the Let's Chill Confetti Cuts in a rainbow-like paper.  The Let's Chill sentiment is displayed at the bottom of the focal panel and a peek of black/white dotted doily finishes off this COOL card!  


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

SugarPea Designs - Creative Color Challenge #2


Hey there, SugarPea Designs friends!

I made this card for my boy, Ben, who is off on a Boy Scout camping trip this week.  It's all tucked inside a care package that he should get in a day or two, along with some of his favorite candies and treats.

There's a new Creative Color Challenge up and running over at the SugarPea Designs blog today!  Check out this gorgeous inspiration graphic and color palette!  


To play along with the SugarPea Designs Creative Color Challenge, the rules are very simple…

Here are the Sugar Pea Designs stamps and dies that I used on my card today!




I stamped the hombre image from the Let's Fiesta stamp set and left him uncolored for a cartoon look.    The SugarCuts - Heart Journal Card Set card became the main panel for the image with a SugarCuts - Polaroid Journal Card angled and peeking from behind a couple of Let's Fiesta stamped sentiment tags.  A bit of twine was added with a mini staple to finish off this fun card.  


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
