Being Unique

Great sentiment, wouldn't you agree? It's from Reverse Confetti's new FABULOUS FLAMINGO stamp set. (Warning: this blog could easily turn into the flamingo channel - I love this set that much!) 

I used an older Retro Sketch, #121. I've long missed the deadline. It was posted almost a month ago now, but still a great sketch!

FABULOUS FLAMINGO has coordinating dies for added convenience!

Happy hump day!

REVERSE CONFETTI DIES: Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts
PAPER: kraft and ivory card stock, Fancy Pants Collecting Moments 6x6 pad
INK: Hero Arts Fresh Peach, Versafine Onyx Black
OTHER: buttons, corner rounder, baker's twine, foam dimensional adhesive

May Card Kitchen (Yes, May!)

It seems during the end-of-school-year frenzy, I forgot all about posting my creations from the MAY Card Kitchen kitBut I just checked, and that kit IS still available, so here goes!

Visit The Card Kitchen blog for lots of kit inspiration. Right now, Kimber is showing peeks of the upcoming August kit, which I must say is one of the best-ever! But for now, rewind to May:

This last card was based on a sketch that I found HERE. Great for using up some paper scraps!

Thanks for stopping by to visit!

Each of the StampNation Dream Team members, along with some of our crafty friends (including me!), are hopping along sharing cards inspired by our first challenge, "Beach Style," as well as a peek at another favorite projects from the event!

Here's my card for the first challenge:

I'm absolutely smitten with Lawn Fawn's adorable beach-themed Life Is Good stamp set and coordinating dies! Especially the super cute flip-flops! How cute are they paper pieced with some bright polka dot paper?? The towel is a piece of patterned paper (Echo Park Walking On Sunshine 6x6 collection) rolled up and fringed at the end. That's my beach style: sand, surf, and a few colorful accessories!

It's time to hop along now. Make sure you leave comments at each of the blogs listed below to be eligible to win...

For The Bird

This was one of my favorite cards that I made for the latest REVERSE CONFETTI release. Love all the new dies and that gorgeous background paper from Crate Paper's Styleboard collection!

The "for you" is die-cut with TAG ME, TOO CONFETTI CUTS dies, and the bird was done with PERFECTLY PAISLEY CONFETTI CUTS dies. The beak is the leaf die from FRESH 'N FRUITY CONFETTI CUTS. In the background is a circle from CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS CONFETTI CUTS. I embellished with a ticket strip, torn paper, light yellow sequins, and two sweet cardboard hearts (from the LOVE NOTE CONFETTI CUTS die set)

July Sketch For You To Try

There's still time to play along with the Reverse Confetti's July Sketch For You To Try! Check out today's post on the Reverse Confetti blog for a fresh new batch of sketch inspiration from the design team. Link YOUR creations HERE!

The challenge closes at noon CST on the 14th. Hope you'll join us!!

Here's the sketch:

For my take, I combined some various dies to create my tag focal point. In the back is the new TAG ME, TOO tag with its darling scalloped grommet/reinforcer circle. The coral piece was die-cut with the new PRETTY PANELS CHEVRON die (without removing the cut-outs). In front of that are two cuts of the largest paisley from PERFECTLY PAISLEY. Last is the "for you" sentiment (part of TAG ME, TOO) and the flower cluster, which was done with PETALS 'N POSIES stamps and their coordinating PETALS 'N POSIES CONFETTI CUTS dies.

Thanks so much for visiting today!
