Lil' Inker Designs and Timeless Twine!


Final#2

Hello!  I have a very special post today as the teams from Lil' Inker Designs and Timeless Twine are teaming up to bring you combined inspiration using products from both companies!  




I knew I wanted to use the Balloon Builders Stamps and Dies because well......the twine makes perfect balloon strings!  I didn't recreate the wheel here but everyone loves balloons!!

I stamped and die cut 8 balloons and added foam tape in two strips to the back.  To each balloon, I added a length of twine in between the foam tape (so that the balloons would lay flat).  I tied each bunch of balloons twine strings in a knot and glued to my card.  

Final

The Timeless Twine colors I've used are:  Lemonade Yellow, Pumpkin Orange, Bubble Gum Pink, and Aqua Blue.

Sweet Wishes


Happy Monday!  
I have a cute shaker card put together using Whimsy Stamps and Dies.  

I used Sweet as Candy and coordinating Sweet as Candy Sentiments to put this card together.  I absolutely love this "Sweet" word die and looks great layered over the die cut lollipop shaker that has been filled with tiny (4mm) tourquoise, sparkling clear, pink sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Cutting Edge Challenge #8


I have some sad news and a change to the Cutting Edge Challenge to share with you. Karolyn Loncon is stepping down from the challenge. I'm not sure how the team will manage without her.......but Karolyn, I'll miss you that's for sure!!!  :)

Now for the change . . . we've decide to extend the playing time. Our challenges will now take place every other week so that our players will have more time to participate. We hope you'll play along!


It's time to share the next Cutting Edge Challenge!  We have another beautiful inspiration project, this one done by Kay Miller.  I can’t wait for you all to play along, so let’s get to it, shall we?!





 There’s so much about this project to be inspired by, right?!  I was so smitten with her whole card that I made my own version except I changed out the florals/greenery and flipped the layout.  Thank you Kay for this amazing card to be inspired by!!  Here’s what I created:

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Tropical Trip


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!



When I saw this inspiration piece, I was so inspired by those signs and had to recreate them on my card.  I've used lots of Lil' Inker Designs products including:  Sunshine Die-Large, Frames and Flowers Die Set, Flip Flop Dies, and Sun Sentiments Stamps.  I paired all those dies up with the fabulous Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.

I just want to wish a very good friend of mine a Happy Birthday shout out today!!!  I had the opportunity to spend time with Jen a few weeks ago and it was such a great time!  So this is an extra special Birthday from me to you!

I've used Petals 'n Posies and coordinating Confetti Cuts stamping them with Distress Inks and spritzing with water.  Love this technique!!  I adhered my blooms to scored border of cardstock.  My sentiment is from Beautiful Banners and coordinating Confetti Cuts.  Everything was adorned with my favorite sequins from Pretty Pink Posh......Sparkling Clear in 4mm/6mm/8mm.

Reverse Confetti SFYTT


Hi everyone!  We had a fabulous weekend away to kickstart the school year and send off summer!  We traveled a whopping 60 miles to a Kansas City Royals baseball game and go to Schlitterbahn.......it's fun to get away even if it's close!  We spent time with friends and family.......such great times!  I'm sure many of you have heard about the tallest water slide in the world called Verruckt that just opened a few weeks ago.  My son rode this and loved it!  It was fun watching him ride this but it only took like 15 seconds!  

Anway, you are here for a card.  I have one using the fabulous Sketch For You to Try (SFYTT) that can be found over on the Reverse Confetti blog.......HERE.  

I've used Reverse Confetti products and paired them up with some of my favorite pattern paper this year.  I layered my papers according to the sketch and then used the Tag Me, Too die set for my focal point.  I love word dies and this large 'you' is perfect to match with lots of sentiment stamps......like this one from All About You.   

8.11.14





You can find all the details of the sketch challenge over on the Reverse Coffetti Blog.  We'd love to see your Reverse Confetti creations!
