Karen and I connected our devices and FaceTimed our way through another challenge. This time it was Make It Monday #215 from Papertrey Ink. The project was to bring the inside of our cards out to be visible on the outside. You will find some great ideas at http://www.nicholeheady.typepad.com along with some amazing designers. Here is what we came up with:
I used apples for my cutouts and the stamps to match for this thank you card. I’ve used this set from Papertrey Ink so many times because it is so versitle and has many options. It always delivers a clean and fresh card for me.
Paper: Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes Stampin’ Up
Diecuts: Apple Prints Papertrey Ink
Stamps: Apple Prints Papertrey Ink
Ink: Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron Stampin’ Up
Karen just received these great scripted die cuts and couldn’t wait to use them. They come with not only the dies, but also stamps to create a multitude of fun phrases. I love the bright colors and sweet flowers she chose to use too.
Paper: Whisper White cardstock cut into A2 size Stampin’ Up
Die cut: Scripted Diecut with stamps Papertrey Ink
Stamps: Painted Petals Stampin’ Up

We were stretched a bit on thischallenge, but it is good to reach beyond your comfort level now and then. I think we will try this ‘Inside Out’ idea again in the future.
It’s time again to share my interpretation for this week’s challenge. Here is the sketch and my card:
This week I received this sweet stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Happy Summer. I love the little ants and the watermelon slice looks very inviting. My paper comes from Papertrey Ink’s Berry Sorbet. Simple, sweet, and summery don’t you think? Be sure to visit the blog at http://www.sweetsundaysketch.blogspot.com for more great ideas.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you will come back soon!
The Snipin’ Sisters were up bright and early for Mojo Monday. This week’s challenge included many layers. Be sure to check out the Mojo site http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com for other ideas on this challenge. Here are our interpretations:
I love the embossed cupcakes and the sweet birthday themed DSP. Her choice of bright colors make this a cheery card indeed!

Stamps– Sprinkles of Life Stampin’ Up
Karen used lots of pattern and plenty of style for her card. Crisp and colorful are hallmarks of her creations. You can’ t go wrong with checks and dots, don’t you agree?
Paper — from the scrap box
Die– Star Framelits Sizzix
Last but not least my card has lots of primary color. Using plenty of white to offset all the brightness works to give this card a happy feel.

We hoped you enjoyed our versions of today’s challenge and will visit our site again soon!
The Snipin’ Sisters were busy on Sunday with their cardstock and stamps creating cards for a challenge that is new to us. There is plenty of fun to be had on this site which meets every other week. This week’s Sunday Stamps is all about slanting papers. It was easy and fun and we hope you enjoy our creations. Be sure to also check out what’s happening at Sunday Stamps http://www.sundaystamps.blogspot.com.
I love the stitched scallop background. It’s a new die cut for Karen and very sweet. Her cute flowers have a lot of sweetness too, don’t you think? The black dots offset make this card so fun!

Stamps– Flower w/Butterfly Rubbermakers

On this first day of summer our challenge was to create a clean and simple card with a summer treat in mind. Even though we made our cards separately we managed to come up with the same subject matter. How does that happen? Here is the sketch and our ideas for summer treats.
