Wheeewww!! Did somebody say HOT?!!

Hey y'all!! Yes, it is HOT hot hot...no other word for it..but hey, it IS summer time right? I'm just ready for it to be over...cause after I do anything outside, I dont feel like do anything inside, such as writing a blog post, haha!

I Thought I would post a few cards I have made lately for some challenges over on SCS.

First I have a card made for the Featured Stamper Challenge. Here is the card of Sophia's I CASEd:

Cute little mouse with hearts!

And my card:


I didnt have that adorable image, but love the jar spilling out the hearts, so used that and made my jar spilling out flowers to brighten someone's day! :D

These next two both were done for the Inspiration Challenge from Saturday. My first card was inspired by this:

Plaid metal Basket

And my ho=-hum card I made, lol!


I needed something more on this, but got tired of trying different things and just finished it up...so yea, kinda ho-hum!

The 2nd card uses this for inspiration:

Numbers

And this is my card:



Yes, tis true, that picture of the numbers is what inspired THIS, LOL! I guess the numbers basically! This one I LIKE! :D

Ok, that's all from me for today, I think, lol! Working on another card, might get it posted! :D

Hope you have a wonderfully creative week!

Gina K Designs June Release Inspiration Hop, Day 2!!

Hey Y'all!! Welcome back to day 2 of our Inspiration Hops for the month of June (in July!...like Christmas in July! ha!)

The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas!

Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

Up first today is Theresa Momber's newest set called Tropical Nature, this is what I have done today with it:


I have stamped the mask images onto air dry clay and then took a paint brush and dry brushed some distress inks onto it after drying. I apologize for the picture...I am still having a hard time with this new photo editing program! This picture just does not do it justice...kinda makes the clay look all bright white and washed out, lol! I have tried taking this pic about oh...a gazillion times! Anyways, it does look really good IRL! :D

Next up is one of our newest Illustrators, Becky Oehler, set called I Do!...here is my creation for today with this set:


Me and my daughter, when she was younger, used to say this to each other...'I love you 4 ever and 4 keeps!' So I HAD to make this for her. She is loving the old vintage look (finally!, lol!) so went with that for this one.

Ready for more awesome eye candy? Here ya go:

Up first is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called Pretty Patterns...oh my word....!!! Does this set have the possibilities or what!?! AND now that Gina K Designs is offered in clear...well, Im in heaven!! So very easy to line up these awesome patterns and you dont have to use one of them darn stampamajiggies! haha! Here is what I have done for today:


I used the chevron pattern that is in the set. And for that bottom edge, I just followed the pattern to get that edge like that, fun stuffs! Quick and fun thank you card done in no time at all! love that!

Up next is Tami Mayberry's newest set called Grand Tags and this set of Tami's also coordinates with Spellbinder's Labels 22, I always love sets that coordinate like that! :D Here is what I have done today:


I just stamped the image in black, and then only added a pop of one color, and I made the card a square card, 4 1/2 x 4 1/2. That's some of that tissue paper by Tim Holtz over a piece of colored cardstock. Kinda tones down the color a bit. (I have a hard time with brights, lol!)

A little late....

Hey y'all!! I am still having an awful time signing into my blogger to update it. It keeps telling me I have two conflicting accounts...which my ISP uses googles server for our mail...BUT, I am not understanding apparently how to fix my 'conflicting accounts' ug...I have to reset my password each time and THEN it will let me into blogger....just weird...!!! Anyways....enough of that! I hope to be able to figure it out soon, lol!

I made this card for the 4th of July and didnt get it posted here yesterday, lol! Always a day late and dollar short.....yep, thats me! :D



AND I am also learning how to use Photoshop Elements 10, with the new computer....Brain overload! haha! This uses a new stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger that was just released last week called 'Pretty Patterns'. There is SOOoooo many possibilities in this set..and fun ways to use all of the patterns. I chose to make a rustic looking flag for the 4th. I hope you and yours had a fun one if you were in the US and celebrating! We did!

Thanks for stopping by and hanging in there with me as I get used to all this new stuff....hard for this old brain, lol! But I'll be sure and be back on Monday....we have some awesome GKD inspiration hops coming then!
