June Blog Hop

I almost forgot about tonight...So I'm cheating a little and re-posting a card I made a few months back. Please forgive me. I LOVE the beach and summertime. Too bad I live 3 hours from the coast...I recently sent this card to another beach-loving friend of mine in California. When we were in high school (before she could drive), she used to ride the bus to the beach with her surfboard. She often paid in pennies. Silly girl.

Paper: PTI White, Ocean Tides, Dark Chocolate, SU Kraft
Ink: PTI Fresh Snow, SU Chocolate Chip
Stamps: PTI Out On a Limb Sentiments, Polka Dot Basics
Other: SU silver cord, "summer" charms, dimensional tape

Raspberry Suite #9

Beautiful colors for this challenge! Green is really out of my comfort zone, but I love it if it is the right shade. I have always thought the egg and dart pattern from PTI's First Fruits coordinates nicely with Birds of a Feather. Here are two versions--one with Versamark on SU Garden Green, with a little frame around the image, and another with the pattern in black.

Card #2 Paper: PTI Vintage Cream Ink: Versafine Onyx Stamps: PTI Birds of a Feather, First Fruits, Pond Life Sentiments Other: PTI New Leaf satin ribbon

Raspberry Suite #8

Dawn's most recent challenge stretched me a bit. I'm not a huge fan of cream with bright colors (I'd rather use a crisp white), but I really like how my card turned out. I hope you do, too. I traced a big Maya Road flower onto Raspberry Fizz cardstock, then cut it out. It took me a while to get the center just right--lots of experiments later, and this is what won out. The ribbon's knot is the center of the flower, and I tucked in some cut pieces of ribbon for the "tails". You can't tell I cheated, right? :) I also don't have Vintage Cream ink, so I used Fresh Snow and pounced it with a little bit of yellow chalk pastel to soften the brightness.
Also, Melissa is giving away some great blog candy...Check it out!
