I have created this first card for Imagine That's June SOTM Challenge! :) What a sweet penguin set perfect for so many different cards - Chillin' with your friends, Father's Day, Thinking of You, etc. The set is called "Poolside Penguins," and if you didn't receive it in your email for playing along last week, please let Kris know. You can still join us by purchasing this cute set for $3 right now in Kris' store (or purchase $10 and mention you would like Poolside Penguins in the comment section to receive it for free), play along with us in the challenge, and then next month you will receive the July set for free and so on until the end of the year .. What a great deal, I say!! :) These progressive challenges are so much fun - just one purchase, and as long as you play every month, you win another free image/set. I LOVE them!
The second card is the first one that I have created for my Guest Designer position with From The Heart Stamps design team!! Yaaay! I am so thrilled that Faith, Imke et al have chosen me to be on the team for the next two months!! :D
If you haven't noticed, I have been creating a lot of beach theme cards lately. I guess it is because I have the beach on my mind ... can't wait for our vacation the end of July in which we will be heading out to a NJ beach. My first time ever in New Jersey, so I will have to post some photos and let you know how it went :)
|Card Details: The digi image on this card is from From The Heart Stamps Wind Song colored with Copic markers (B00, B02, B18, B29, YR16, Y18, Y13 and Y11). Card base is just Neenah white cs, then Stampin Up's brilliant blue layer in the background, SU Summer Sun used for the sun cut-out, accented with Y18 Copic marker. My Mind's Eye cloud scraps cut with my 1" circle punch, larger dotted circle cut out from a cool pattern on my Kleenex box (saved for a while now), layers cut out with the Spellbinders' classic rectangles and scalloped rectangles sets, wave strip from Summer Fun digi paper scrap.|
I would also like to add these to the following challenges:
