Big post today! Big Post! When I saw the inspiration photos for Papertrey Ink's monthly blog hop, I was so inspired that instead of choosing just one, I wanted to use them all! Lucky for me, I had a rare weekend with nothing planned so I got to make cards all day Saturday! It was so much fun and I am happy to share what I created here! The first card I made was inspired by this photo: I don't have any stocking stamps so I was inspired by the colors to make a little winter scene.

First thing I thought of when I saw Minty Fresh challenge was ICECREAM! Mint chocolate chip is my favorite! I think these two make a very cute couple!

The Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab Blog was this cool typewriter and I thought I would make a little card inspired by it's awesomeness!

I made this card for the Hooked on Hexagons Challenge over at the Moxie Fab Blog. Today is the deadline for the challenge and I was shocked to see that I HADN'T missed it! (Most cards I make are inspired by challenges but I rarely seem to make them before the deadlines! But that doesn't stop me! ...I LOVE hexagons! This card uses the Papertrey Ink Hexagon Die for the background and also the tag was stamped randomly with their Background Basics: Farm and Barn which has some cool barbed-wirey hexagons. The cupcake is also Papertrey. The SWEET letters were die cut with a Tim Holtz Alterations Inside Out die. (I only used the centers of the letters) I used some cuter than cute paper from CratePaper. So here it is...
Hope you like it! Have a great day!

I loved Betsy Veldman's card set so much! I am going to for sure try to make a set like that soon! Actually, I loved ALL of the card sets! The designers at Papertrey are so talented! I needed to make a set of birthday cards for kids so this is what I came up with...The sentiment is from Movers and Shakers:Sentiments, and the images are from Tremendous Treats:Birthday. I wanted the sentiments on paper that matched the Copic markers that I colored the images, so I just colored a square of white cardstock with marker before cutting it with the Mat Stack die.I heat embossed the sentiment also.

I made my first card and had so much fun that I decided to try another! I really like the colors in this inspiration photo!
I pulled out my zig-zag background and stamped it with Lemon Tart and Aqua Mist. First, I cut a tag out of aqua cardstock and stamped the flowers with the green ink. I die cut the tag again out of white and then die cut it again with the little circles along the bottom. I also used a gel pen to add faux stitching around the tag. I die cut the zig zag and stamped the sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages and popped it up with foam tape. It was finished when I tied the tag around the sentiment with twine.
This is the June Blog Hop:
This months inspiration is a fun take on florals, ruffles & pleats. Leaves me envisioning New Leaf ink stamped onto Aqua Mist cardstock with perhaps some pops of Harvest Gold or Lemon Tart die-cuts! Have fun perhaps trying your hand at pleats or ruffles using your favorite ribbons. This photo sparks all kinds of amazing summery ideas! We look forward to seeing your creations!
I haven't created anything for the Blog Hop in a long time! I always hope to get my stamps that I ordered on the 15th but alas they haven't come yet. This month I decided to use sets that I already have on hand! I took inspiration from the textured pillow in the background and scored my Aqua Mist cardstock with my Martha Stewart score board. I die cut the butterfly and stamped it with the aqua ink. Then I stamped over it with a flower from the Pretty Peonies set with New Leaf. The sentiment is also from the Beautiful Butterflies set.
