Just leave a comment by July 2nd at 8:00 am EST. 

I made a semi-fancy fold card, to create a shadow box type effect for the adorable Bobunni stamp that was colored with the Spectrum Noir markers.  These Edge'ables dies are so fun, and I loved creating the pennant effect by using it twice.

May Arts and Stampendous Blog Hop

This week, the May Arts Ribbonistas are pairing up with Stampendous to bring you fun inspiration.  And you know the sweet Ribbon Lady has a prize to share with you for the hop - a $25 gift certificate to the Ribbon Resource! Be sure to see the May Arts Blog for all of the details.

 I'm starting off the hop today with this fun Zebra card. I just thought the image was a perfect match with the Black Twill Chevron ribbon, and I used two different sizes to fit my card just right. I embossed the image and then colored in the white stripes using a Wink of Stella Clear pen, just to give it a little sparkle.

Poppy Power

I am really enjoying playing with watercolors and thought that the Large Poppies stamp would be fun to practice my techniques.  I used the Spectrum Aqua pens, but first heat embossed the image with black powder. This technique is quick and easy, perfect for summer days!

You're Bloomin Great

One of my favorite summer palettes is red and aqua - so I colored this gorgeous image from IndigoBlu.  After my flowers were covered, I masked them and stamped the background image with embossing powder and inked over it.
