You Mean the World to Me!

I thought I'd play with some new My Digital Studio products today. I wasn't real sure that I'd use the stamp set The Open Sea much so I thought I'd purchase it as a digital download. What a great option that is & what a great stamp set this is! I can definitely see myself using this more in the future! :)
I used the jac-inks Sketch Challenge #10 as my starting point. I was able to adjust not only the size of the world, but also vary the brad sizes as well to curve around the globe.

Supplies: All Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
DSP: Nautical Expedition
Accessories: Designer Brad Stars
To all the great fathers out there, Happy Father's Day!
Have a fab day!

Flower Blocks CAS

Today's post is super clean & simple but I really like the punch of color on the white space!

I used the CAS-ual Fridays Color Blocking challenge along with The Play Date Cafe's color challenge of Hollyhock, Skyblue, & Orange. I used the Stampin' Up! equivilants of Rose Red, Pacific Point, & Pumpkin Pie. I actually stamped this card three different times. The first time I only did it with one color per block. Then I added shimmer mist to the second (BIG MISTAKE)! Then I thought why not Rock & Roll??? I love the blending of the colors and how continuous they fall in the sqaures.

Supplies:All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie
Stamps: So Happy for You (retired), For All You Do
Accessories: SMOOCH in Moonlight

Have a fab day!

One of my favorite people is graduating 8th grade & heading to high school! Miss Kelsey is the daughter of one of my best friends. She is absolutely fantastic & I wanted to create a special card for her to celebrate!
The CAS-ual Fridays Sketch Challenge was a great sketch for my card.
I thought this color combo from the Stampin' Royalty DT was perfect for the card I wanted to create!
Supplies: All Stampin' Up! Except the Cake Doily & Acetate
Cardstock: Whisper White
DSP: Wild Wasabi Stripes (printed from My Digital Studio), Daffodil Delight Polka Dots, Ice Cream Parlor Accents (retired)
Stamp: Strength & Hope, Word Play
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo
Accessories: SMOOCH Spritz in Gold Glow, SMOOCH Pearlized ink in Gold Lame, Iridescent Ice Embossing powder, Scallop Trim Borber Punch
Side note: Sometimes it's not easy using different color combos and this one from Colour Q was a little challenging for me. I loved the way this card turned out in the end! In fact, I was honored to find out it was chosen as one of the top cards from both the Stampin' Royalty gals & the Colour Q Royal Court DT! Stretch those boundaries & you'll be amazed at the wonderful creations you create! :)
Have a fab day!
