INSPIRED BY #IB163 - TAKE A NUMBER

Hello stamping friends!

After this crazy Texas weather we had last week...I need a beach vacation..pronto!!! 

Hope all is well with you and we can count on you to join us for a new fab Inspired by Challenge??? 




Here is this weeks inspiration photo #IB163- Take a Number....


My card was inspired by the numbers....
our Sarah's birthday is coming up and I figured it
would be perfect to craft a birthday card with her "numbers" on it :).

For this card I pulled out my PTI - Don't forget to Write Market Kit along with the matching dies. I started out by scoring the White CS layer. The numbers were cut out with Gold Glitter DP using the By the Numbers Mats Dies. The stripped background behind the numbers was inked up using the retired SU- Gorgeous Grunge Set. The sentiment is from the retired PTI - Painted Petals and Bloomin' Cute Set. At last I added the Gold Pearls

Now it's your turn! Wishing you a wonderful crafty week! ~SL~

INSPIRED BY #IB162 - QUOTE ME

Hello and Happy Day!

We have the most adorable Inspired By Challenge waiting for you....


My card was inspired by a "Winnie The Pooh" Quote. 

I decided to rewrite the quote on my computer, so I could highlight it in the PTI - Bold Borders: Arabesque Die. Next I decorated my card with the PTI - Gran's Garden Set along with the matching dies. At last I added the punched out Butterfly and dressed it up with some Silver Pearls.

Please stop by the Challenge Blog to see all the fabulous creations the Design Team has crafted for this fun challenge! Hope you will give it a try?!? Wishing you a wonderful day! ~SL

COLOR THROWDOWN #629 - THANK YOU

Happy Monday!

We are trapped in our house due to the crazy frigid cold weather here in Texas...it's all good...I had a chance to craft some cards :) !!!

The Color Throwdown #629 was calling my name and here is my idea....




The color combo for this week is PINK - RED- BLACK AND WHITE....

My card is featuring the Most Wonderful Card Kit from The Stamp Market (no longer available). I color blended the Heart Stencil that was included in the kit....and used a bigger SU Heart Die to cut it out. The Thank You Layering Die is also from The Stamp Market. At last I scored the lines and added some Silver Pearls. The colors for my card are SU- Pretty in Pink and PTI - Pure Poppy.

Stay safe and warm my friends! ~SL~

INSPIRED BY #IB161 - PRETTY AS A PITCHER

Happy Day!

We are showcasing another beautiful Inspired By Challenge....


Here is this weeks inspiration photo Pretty as a Pitcher #IB161.....


My inspiration came from the Pink Pitcher.

When I saw this inspiration photo I immediately thought of my favorite pitcher image Tulips for Friends from Flourishes. Unfortunately the company is longer in business, but it will always be super special to me. I colored the tulip image with various Copic Markers and placed a Doily behind it. The sentiment is from PTI - Ways To Say: Birthday Mini Set. The DP is from the PTI - Lovely Lady Collection and I matched it up with a matching Pink Ribbon.

Hope we have inspired you to play along?!? Looking forward to see your ideas! ~SL~
