CCEE1429 - IBS French Country

Happy Sunday!

This week's CCEE Challenge is to use a chicken in some way on your card. I inked up my Inspired by Stamping French Country stamp set:

The Cherish sentiment is from the Basket of Flowers stamp set and I die cut it with the smallest of the Fancy Labels 2 Dies.

Happy Friday!  

For my Inspired By Stamping Blog post today, I made a card using this month’s IBSIC Sketch.

I used two patterns from the Vintage Floral Paper Pad. The Fancy Labels 3 Dies were perfect for this sketch. The long banner die was used to cut the musical note strips.

Isn’t this a lovely sentiment? It is from the Vintage Roses stamp set. I used two more of the Fancy Labels 3 Dies, and lightly sponged the oval in pink.

I used the negative die cut on the inside of the card and stamped the sentiment from the Basket of Flowers stamp set.

The IBSIC83 runs until June 20, so you still have time to participate.  You may use the sketch, colors, ribbon, or combine all three. Three randomly chosen participants will each win a $10 IBS discount code.

Please visit the IBS Blog to see what Mynn is sharing along with me today.

LNS 253 - In-Colors

Happy Monday!

It's time for a new LNS Challenge. This week the design team would like to see you use In-Colors for your card, L/O, or 3D project.

I made a treat holder using three of the 2013-2015 In-Colors, Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Pistachio Pudding:

I have seen these cute treat holders on a few blogs, so I don't know who to give credit to for the original design. The measurements are 7 1/2 x 7 1/2, scored at 2 1/2 all around, and then scored from each point in to the score line (hope that's clear!).  

Here are pictures of the sides and back:

Hop on over to the LNS Challenge Blog for more In-Color inspiration from the rest of the DT.

You have two weeks to participate in Challenge 253. We look forward to see what In-Colors you choose to use.

Happy crafting!

Supplies used:  Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, and Whisper White CS, Lullaby DSP, Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe Ink, Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine, Pearls, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Little Leaves Sizzlet (retired), Petite Petals, Round, and Scalloped Round Punches, and A Round Array and Petite Petals Stamp Sets.

IBS Sunflower For You

Happy Wednesday!

Do you like sunflowers? I sure do! Especially a whole field of them.

I don't have a whole field to share today, but I do have a card with a sunflower from the Inspired by Stamping French Country stamp set:

I stamped the sunflower image twice on patterned paper, fussy cut it, and curled the edges. The center was stamped on card stock and slightly distressed.

The For You sentiment is from the Inspired by Stamping Sweat Pea stamp set.

I carried the sunflower image to the inside of the card along with a Happy Birthday sentiment which is also from the Sweat Pea stamp set.

I will be entering this card in the SSSC #226:
