Classic Record

                 I was all in for this wonderful inspiration challenge from the Card Concept:

How sweet is that pink turntable? Brings me back to the days of my youth.
I used SugarPea Designs "Greatest Hits" stamps. Stamped the album in black and then covered with Versamark and clear embossing powder to make it shiny. The paper is Stampin' Up! sprayed with pink Nuvo glimmer mist. Silver embossed handle and cut out, popped up on dimensional foam tape.

Pretty Lady

How sweet is that birthday greeting? This is another lovely from the Birthday Girl set from The Project Bin. I embossed the sentiment in gold and used Moda Scrap paper, added a glittered butterfly, baker's twine, and a paper rose.

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

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!
