#424 Rainbows on a Project

Hello everyone!  We are happy to celebrate Pride Month for our first challenge of the Month!  It's all about Rainbows!

The DT has created some lovely rainbow themed projects for you to enjoy and be sure to join in using the link below with your own rainbow inspired projects. 


-To honor my dog who recently crossed the "Rainbow Bridge," I decided to create a rainbow project  featuring her sitting in her favorite spot before she passed on.

I have made a birthday card using some patterned paper that has been in my stash for a long time - it was part of a Stampin' Up paper share.  I love this birthday sentiment and decided to stamp it directly onto the patterned paper for more impact.

 Hello! Welcome back to the new challenge!

We hope you are doing well and creating up a storm!

Here's our new challenge!


I borrowed this off the internet, so a big thank you to the original creator!  Pick any three in a line and incorporate that into your project for this challenge.  To really challenge yourself, try to do a black out and use everything!  Be sure to tell us which line you used!

Have fun and we look forward to seeing what inspires you from this board.!

I went across the top to use flower(s), watercolour and a fun fold card.

I went bottom left to top right to make this cute card for a male who is sick.
Paper piecing , butterfly and fun fold.
That is a tissue in the pocket that I folded.

I chose the right-hand column
- Fun Fold 
- Stripes 
- Any Shade of Purple
Thanks to this challenge I now know how to make paper pinwheels 
I learned from a tutorial on You Tube while I was looking for ideas for "Fun Fold"

I used one of the diagonal lines: flower - butterfly - any shade of purple.  I used Distress Ink to colour and stamp my background and then Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grape ink to colour my stamped butterfly.  The flower is a paper embellishment just below the antennae.

I decided to go down the diagonal and went with flower, butterfly and any shade of purple...


I also went on the diagonal of flower, butterfly and any shade of purple!

#422: Stencils on a Project



I used a small box stencil along with gray spray ink to create my own background paper to accent this picture of my daughter having a glass of juice with a magnolia garnish poolside.


I used a Memory Box tree stencil with Distress Inks to create a winter scene.  I added a snow drift at the bottom of the trees using a die and then a deer using a die from Stampin' Up.


I finally got to use this Vicki Boutin stencil that I received in a SCT sampler years ago.  I thought the butterflies would be perfect for some rainbow stenciling for a Mother's Day card for my mom.


I've used a kaiser brickwall stencil on this card with a dark green mist. 

It looks brown on the kraft cardstock.

# 421 Inspired by a Book


Welcome to Monday and this week's fun new challenge!

Our challenge is INSPIRED BY A BOOK
It can be a title, a character, a theme, a book cover, whatever inspires you by a certain book.
Let's look at what the DT has created to help you along!

Helen - as soon as I saw this image, it reminded me of the book 'All Creatures Great and Small' by James Herriot.  It looks just like a scene from an old fashioned country show!

My slimline card is based on the book Alice's Adventure in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll - GAIL

Julene has made a layout about her visit to Green Gables on Prince Edward Island.


I was inspired by a book my son has called "Love You More" and used lots of hearts on this page!

#420 Spring/Easter

 Good Morning everyone!

Here is the new challenge for your enjoyment!  Our theme is Spring/Easter  (now I know Easter is done, but if you still feel like making some projects that have that feel to them, go right ahead!)

Check out what the DT has made magic with for you this go round!


For this project, I decided to dip into my Easter picture archives and feature a pic of my girls visiting with the Easter Bunny.

The sun rays in the first photo, the green, pink and yellow color combo + the flower and sun embellishments makes me think Spring!
