Birthday Girl

This new set from The Project Bin is called Birthday Girl and you will absolutely adore the sentiments in this one! For this card I used a brass stencil for the cake with some glimmer paste so it is nice and sparkly. Colored in with Copic markers when paste was dry to compliment the Stampin' Up! papers I used.

Another of the greetings from this set. Love this and it can work for so many occasions.
Background is on watercolor paper with Tim Holtz distress inks, a die cut border in black.

Some stamps and supplies that I bought in London- washi tapes from the Tower of London gift shop (mint green with arrows is Stampin' Up!), Penny Black stamp set from Blade Rubber Stamps near the National Gallery. I manage to find the stamping/craft store wherever I go, you never know what local treasures you may find :) I got lost walking back to the hotel and it was so much fun. Saw things that weren't on my agenda and it was awesome!

Mosaic and Citrus

When I saw the inspiration for this challenge I knew exactly which stamps I was going to use (Copic markers to color). Darling Blooms stamp is by Technique Junkies, sentiment from The Project Bin- "Birthday Girl". Card Concept #115 can be found at this link  https://thecardconcept.blogspot.com/2019/05/the-card-concept-115-mosaic-madness.html

Here is another inspiration challenge that I found via Paper Playful (they provide lists each week for all kinds of challenges). Check it out if you have a moment, it's so helpful!
This inspiration challenge was from  The House That Stamps Built, a lovely color palette or go with the citrus. Loved this!

I love this new Stampin' Up embossing folder- Country Floral. It's deep etching make this even more beautiful. I had fun coloring in all of the blossoms and I know that I will be using this ef quite often, I love it!

Love Your Shellfie

This new set is so incredibly cute with sentiments for practically every occasion. It is called "Love Your Shellfie" and is from The Project Bin.
I used Glossy White card stock and Tim Holtz distress oxide inks of Peeled Paint and Broken China. Rainbow die is  Stampin' Up! and clouds are Memory Box.
The second card is also for the VSN travel challenges at Splitcoast and uses SU's Map background embossing folder, the sweet "Shellfie" turtle  and some sequins :)

Virtual Stamp Night

I only was able to complete a few cards for Splitcoast's Virtual Stamping travel themed challenges. I have not yet unpacked all of my stamps and supplies so it was more challenging than usual. Maybe I will come back and revisit some of them, they looked like great inspirations!

Hope you have a wonderful week and much sunshine!
