Simon Says...............Joy's Summer Inspiration board


This week, our challenge for you is   
a SUMMER Inspiration board 
put together by our very own Teamie, Joy!!!
Isn't it great?? LOTS of inspiration to choose from here!!!!  

 I have chosen the flower in the bottom right corner as my inspiration! When I saw this, I immediately thought of my Hero Arts Engraved Daisy  stamp. So I set off to find it, and COULDN'T!! I totally freaked out, but eventually found it in a spot where it shouldn't have been!  OY!!!!  It is a cling stamp from Hero Arts with Red rubber....they are amazing - and ink very nicely!!!!  

This week the DT are showcasing the INCREDIBLE selection of Hero Arts products that Simon Says Stamp be SURE To check them all out!!!!

 Anyway,Here is my card for this week:

The CS is So Saffron (SU) and the DP is Lily Bee - Double Dutch. I just got my 34 piece gelatos kit a couple weeks ago so I had a play (actually I played a lot until I finally found a technique that looked great with this flower!)   I coloured on the stamp with the gelatos, then spritzed with water, then stamped.  I think it is the most simple of techniques but I think it turned out really pretty!!!  I used yellow, red and a metallic orange, but unfortunately you can't really see the shimmer in the picture from the orange!!! GRRRRR!!!!!  I attached some shimmery orange ribbon and yellowish orange rhinestones to bling it up a bit!!! The sentiment is from an exclusive Simon Says Stamp sentiment set.

Now...... head to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to check out all the gorgeous creations from our FANTABULOUS Design Team!!!!

Love to Create challenge ........use something RECYCLED!!!!

Good morning everyone!!! Happy Monday!!!!! This week the LOVE TO CREATE Challenge is to use something that has been RECYCLED!!! I have used some pink shiny foil from a ripped gift bag (managed to save a good size chunk!!!!)

This week our sponsor is Sassy Studios and I have used an old image called Sock Hop Sweetie.  The reason I have used an older image, is because I got a pinched nerve in my neck on Wed. and couldn't colour.  Thankfully I had this one already coloured and was able to put together a card while I was "drugged" up! LOL   Love me some muscle relaxants! LOL    I have coloured her with Copics.  The swirl is an EK Success punch and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Nothing fancy since I had a hard time sitting up for any length of time without being in pain!!! 

Here is my card for the week!

Head on over to the challenge blog to check it out!!! HOPE to see you joining us!!!!!
