For my first card I colored this A Day For Daisies digital image with Altenew Artist markers, cut it with an oval die and adhered it to a panel of patterned paper that had been embossed with Gina K Designs folder, Tapestry. The sentiment is from Gina K 's Perfect Posy set.

My card was inspired by challenge #450 at Use Your Stuff 'Triangles."
The stamp used is from Studio Light and was in a Crafty Box from Simon Says Stamp last year. Time to use it!
The front panel was created with the 'trapped ink' technique: stamped with color, stamped with Versamark and clear embossed, then covered with Black Soot ink. The sentiment is from a Gina K set, Birthday Bash, and I free cut some colorful triangles from scraps.

Thanks for looking!

Fun new sketch for you at Try Stampin' On Tuesday!
There are always two great sketches open at TSOT - each lasts for two weeks. My design team card is for sketch #561 starting today.
My card uses the Adorable Adventures set by My Favorite Things. A really fun set for creating all kinds of scenes. I colored with alcohol markers and ink blended background with Gina K inks. As you can see I rotated the sketch to make landscape
I have always enjoyed camping with my three boys and now the grandchildren. This card will go to my oldest son who will visit later this summer. He lives in Japan, and it's been three years since he was able to come home. We usually get to Lake Quinault for a camp and Loop hike.
What kind of 'Fun in the Sun' are you planning? Check out the fabulous inspiration cards from the design team at TSOT and play along!

Happy Saturday and welcome to the new Sketch Saturday Challenge, June 18-July 1st
The option is to use only scraps for the layers in your card!
For my design team inspiration, I got out my scrap box and found some fun things. Even the white circle was in there, and I cut it it half after stamping it with Simon Says Stamp, Circle Sayings. I am also linking this card to Creative Knockouts #457 challenge to use 2 or more patterned papers on your card.
I hope you will play along with us at Sketch Saturday!
Good Morning, I am the host of this week's challenge at ALLSORTS and have chosen the theme
The prizes for this challenge are a floral stamp and 3 images from Ruth Hamilton Design
My design team inspiration uses Nasturtiums by Ruth Hamilton. She has so many beautiful floral images available. I printed it twice and colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I cut out the smaller flower and tucked it in to make a trio of blooms which was popped up on a black panel embossed with a Swiss dot folder (impossible to see in my photos). The sentiment is from an Altenew Paint-a-Flower set., and some water drop embellishments to finish.

Happy Monday! Check out this new sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
I made a square card and attempted to follow the heart as the central focus. I recently watched a video about the floating strips technique, and thought perhaps it would work with this 'fractured' design. I cut pieces and glued them down to acetate, then cut with the stitched heart die from Gina K Designs. I popped it up with foam tape onto another heart cut from yellow card stock. The sentiment die is from My Favorite Things. The patterned paper is from my stash of unused paper from Simon Says Stamp kits. The bee (Altenew) was stamped and fussy cut as was the flower (CTMH).

The card base is Simon Says Fog card stock. I stamped and colored the cala lily from a mini set by Altenew. The sentiment is Gina K Designs, Spring greetings. The dots behind the lily were stamped through a cut circle mask with Archival Planinum Planet ink. They are subtle and hard to photograph, but do provide some shine in real life. A few tiny pearls were added from my stash.
