Wishing You Smiles & Exciting News!


I'm excited to announce a new paper crafting challenge called Pinterest Inspired Challenge!! It's the brain child of Emily Frasier and i am so honored when she asked me to join her in this new adventure!!

So the challenge is pretty simple, make a new card or project based on the photo inspiration that we found on Pinterest. Details on how to play can be found here. A new challenge starts the 1st of the month and will be open until the 25th of that month! The winner and honorable mentions will be posted with the new challenge on the 1st,

And of course a challenge wouldn't be complete with out a prize. Alison from The Alley Way Stamps is sponsoring our 1st challenge with the awesome Calypso stamp set.

Our first photo inspiration is a gorgeous print! Be inspired by the colors, flowers, pattern etc!! It's up to you!!

For my i was inspired by the colors and the flower pattern. I placed a stencil over some white card stock and with an ink applicator added some distress inks that matched the photo. I started with the yellow in the middle and then worked my way out to an aqua and then blue.

Next i stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamps Sending and Wishing stamp set in black ink. I trimmed the panel down a little, then matted it on some gray glitter card stock. Last i added it to a black card base.
