I love sharing my stamping time with Hunter. She always has great ideas and can really think outside the box. Hunter and I sat down together today to make Birthday cards. There are lots of family members with Birthdays this time of year! She chose to make a bold, vibrant card and I chose a subtle one. Here they are:
Stamp Sets: Starburst Sayings, Delightful Dozen

I have been having so much fun with the new Butterfly Thinlits that I started thinking about the other butterfly dies I have. I decided to dust off my Beautiful Wings Embosslits for this week’s Pals Paper Arts layout challenge. I love the softness of the Wisteria Wonder against the bold Coastal Cabana:

This week, Pals Paper Arts has a sketch challenge (PPA236). I knew instantly that I was going to love this layout – I am a banner girl 🙂 In this card, I cut strips of Flashback DSP and used the Hexagon punch to create the flagged ends. For the sentiment, I stamped it, added a strip of Beach House Crushed Curry Washi Tape, then ran it through the Big Shot with one of the Chalk Talk Framelits. Here’s my happy banner card:
Stamp Set: Simply Wonderful (Sale-A-Bration)
Cardstock: Smoky Slate, Pool Party, Whisper White, Flashback DSP
Ink: Real Red
Lovelies: White Bakers Twine, Beach House Washi Tape, Brights Candy Dots, Arrows Embossing Folder, Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (Sale-A-Bration), Hexagon Punch, Chalk Talk Framelits
