MCT Inspired Wednesday ~ Birdies!


Hi friends, I hope you're enjoying your summer!  We actually had a bit of rain yesterday.  Normally I wouldn't be happy for it in summer, but with our drought every drop helps!

 Today is Inspired Wednesday over at My Creative Time.  Inspired Wednesday is where we share you what inspires us :)  Today my inspiration is a room from Pottery Barn Kids.  Even though the room is for a little girl, I certainly wouldn't categorize this as a baby card.  Definitely feminine but for any age. :)



For the doily I wanted the texture without the holes, so I didn't punch them out.  You can only do this with a heavy cardstock like Papertrey Ink's.  I stamped the birds and the branch on the doily then stamped the birds again on scrap paper and cut out.  I used water color pencils to color everything.  

The two smaller tags are really the large chevy die.  I carefully hid them under the doily so they appear as a true die.

PKS Sketch/Photo/Color Challange ~ Happy Santa!




Hi, welcome to Peachy Keen Stamps Sketch/Photo/Color Challenge, one challenge, unlimited options! That's right you get to choose, one, all three, or any combination.  How fun is that!

I decided to go with the color and sketch.  I really wanted to use the NEW Pieceables SVG files, plus I have Christmas on my mind with the Christmas in July celebration going on at Peachy Keen.




I used the Candy Stripe Background (which is on sale right now) for the upper half.


This Santa was singing for an action wobble :)

Tag it Tuesday ~ you are a lifesaver!




Hi, today is Tag it Tuesday over at My Creative Time!  We were asked to create a tag using the photo inspiration and color challenge.  I'm going to keep this super short so you'll have time to visit my DT sister too.  :)


When I stamped the "sentiment"  I masked off part of the stamp.  Masking off is the perfect way to make your stamps work for many projects.  The "rope" on the lifesavers were embossed with white embossing powder.
