Poppy Seed Challenge #2


Hi Everyone! I'm a big fan of Lisa Johnson. She is one of the best. She just started doing her own challenges and they are so fun!

The current challenge is to combine buttons, polka dots and the color light moss. I made a few cards inspired by her challenge and also by spring clothing (a fun tip Tami used on the Hero Arts blog this week).


The first card was inpired by a denim jacket I have. The large flower was embossed then shaded with white colored pencil. I used cling dots for my background. I like how the dots make the card a little less serious.


The second card was inspired by this girl's dress I saw last week at the Gap. Isn't it fun?

Here is my card. I used the Bird on a Branch stamp from Hero Arts paired with some buttons and gems from PTI. The sentiments on both cards are from the Hero Art's Thoughtul Messages clear set. Oooo and did you spot the new PTI medium scallop die cut! I'm totally in love. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you had a great day!

Cuckoo For You

Hi Everybody! I've been drooling over the new Paper Trey Ink release the last couple of weeks. Seeing all of the cool new projects inspired me to get out some of my PTI stamps.

I used Background Basics: Retro from PTI along with Hero Art's Cuckoo stamps. I stamped the clock in black ink, cut it out and mounted it on a big PTI button to give it a little fun and dimension. I could resist scattering some pearls around the cuckoo clock too. All the paper is from PTI.


Hope you are having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

An Early Spring

Hi Everyone! I'm back from vacation and have been enjoying spending time outside in our early spring weather! My favorite part of spring is all of the flowers!

I couldn't resist playing with this fun Cling image. I stamped the flower three times, once for each of the three colors. After trimming the middle piece I cut the petals down by using a circle punch. Then I rotated it to add another layer of petals.

Hope you are having a great day!
