Hello Friend - April '17

Time is just zooming along and here we are already sharing the April 12 Kits of Occasions!

Sharron Gregory is our hostess this month and she sent us the most adorable kit full of goodies to create so many cards to say Hello Friend! There are so many stamps and dies in her kit that I do not have and I had so much fun playing with all her supplies. The patterned papers she used this month are just beautiful--I love the linen feel and all the fabulous patterns. This kit may have caused me to do a bit of shopping too!

On to what you came to see today, I made four cards this month. I still have lots left to make more cards. I always like to leave a bit of the kits unfinished because there is always so much inspiration for the rest of the team.

On to the cards...

What Does the Fox Say?

 Reminder there's still time to play along with Challenge #70 at Tag You're It!

I created a tag using the same set that our Featured Artist Kim Heggins used for her inspiration tag, but I used the fox! The background was created with Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide inks and then I splattered the tag with water.  The images were clear embossed and watercoloured with Distress Inks.


You have until Wednesday May 3rd to play along with us.
See you there!

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #30

Time for another new Mix It Up challenge at SugarPea Designs! You have all month to play along with us, and each week several of our designers will share some fresh inspiration with their take on the challenge. Remember the more times you play along during the month, the better chance you have of winning a $50 gift certificate to our store!!!

For my card today I used both the sketch and the photo inspiration. I started off by sponging my sky on Bristol cardstock with Broken China Distress Oxide ink. The add the detail to my background I splattered water to the panel.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in white. For my five umbrellas I sponged regular Distress inks on Bristol cardstock and splatered them with water before die cutting them.  The canes were cut from black cardstock. I assembled the unbrellas and adhered them to the sky with tape runner and the blue and purple umbrellas were adhered with foam tape.
