A Summer Scene and more!

it's such a sunny summer day and all i want is to sit here crafting! there must be something wrong with me... i'm addicted to stamping, that's what it is!


first off we have a card for the new kwernerdesign colour challenge #56. 6 colours to use today! not so easy, but i searched thru some papers and found patterns that fit. flowers are on my mind because last night my husband & i took a walk thru our neighbourhood and looked at so many wonderful gardens! the colours are incredible everywhere! so here's my take on the challenge:


stuff used:
paper...
Basic Grey - Gypsy 6x6 paper pad
white & green cs
stamps...
Hero Arts - Italian Poetry background & Manuscript background
ink...
StazOn - blazing red
Brilliance - pearlescent orange
extras...
Slice - Animal Crackers & Basics 3 design cards
Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots embossing folder
EK Success - embossed curve border punch
white embroidery thread
PaperTrey - yellow satin ribbon
Basic Grey - obscure button
Prima - Calypso Tin flowers

next up is today's 365 Cards challenge card. the theme ("i'm in a bind!") is to bind 2 pieces of something to make a card. i took 2 pieces of blue cardstock at attached them at the seam with patterned reinforcements. i got these ages ago and still hadn't found a use for them in my cardmaking. hip hip hooray, today's the day! (grin)



stuff used:
paper...
white & cyan cs
stamps...
Inkadinkadoo - Wellspring
Savvy Stamps - birthday wishes
ink...
Brilliance - pearlescent ice blue & mediterranean blue
Tim Holtz distress - antique linen
extras...
Staples coloured reinforcements
Memories in the Making - Ocean craft fibres
