Club Scrap Blueprints Bloghop

Blueprints Hop Revised photo 0914Blueprints_bloghop_REV2_zps5bc7c2b8.jpg

Welcome to the Club Scrap Blueprints Blog Hop.  If you got here from Annette's Page you are in the right place.  If you got here some other way and would like to go back to the beginning of the blog hop go to the Club Scrap Blog here. I subscribe to the Club Stamp Digital Kit, the Art Nouveau StampClub Stamp Kit,  Unmounted Borders and Backgrounds Stamp, and the Embellishment Pack.  

The digital kits come at the first of the month so I played with my digital kit first.   I am in the process of re-organizing my craft room and came up with this page as my Rewards page for each task accomplished in the organization process.


Because the Club Stamp kits didn't ship until the 22nd of September I didn't get my stamps in time to play with them.  But I did have time to make this digital card face.



Thanks for joining us on the hop!  That's the bloghop for this month see you next month with more fun creations!   If you want to go back to the beginning of the blog hop go to the Club Scrap blog here.  


Happy Crafting!

House of Cards September Classic & Elegant

It's time for another challenge at the House of Cards Challenge Blog and the Classic & Elegant team is posting this week.  This month our challenge is a photo/color inspiration...

  

Here's my card from the inspiration...


I loved the weathered boards in the inspiration photo.  I found this cute weathered boards DP from Basic Grey "herbs & honey" and the cute fruit advertisement in my Apron Strings August All Year Cheer Card Kit.  The canning jar is from Stampin'Up! Perfectly Preserved (retired) and the sentiment is Stampin'Up! Hostess Hello There.  Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Come join us at the House of Cards Blog for this month's challenge!  

I am also entering this in Darnell's latest NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) Challenge as I had never used the stamps in the Hostess Hellos set or the DP and Ribbon.  Click on the picture below if you want to play in her challenge.  She has some great prizes!

It has been a while since I played on the Inkspirational Challenge Blog.  But the beautiful Photo inspiration caught my eye.

My First Inspired by Stamping Post

Today is my first day posting on the Inspired by Stamping blog.  After seeing the gorgeous watercolored Waterlilly card that DT buddy Nupur did, I thought it would be fun to watercolor the sunflower in the French Country stamp set.

I used the Creative Tags stamp set for my sentiment.  I love how that set has every sentiment you could want to make cards with.  The small tags are perfect when you don't want your sentiment to overwhelm the rest of your card.


I hope I have inspired you to try watercoloring your stamps.  After you try it be sure to sign your work of art!  Happy Crafting!
