Spreading the Love

Amber, over on Damask Love, has a fun challenge called Spreading the Love.  It is sponsored by Clear and Simple Stamps.  It goes like this.  Pick one of your favorite blogs where you find inspiration for your creations.  Then pick one of the color stories available in this challenge and make a project using those colors.  Write a blog post and include a photo of your creation.  Add a link to your favorite blog and tell a little bit about how  that blogger  inspires you.  Link that post on Damask Love.BoldBLOOMSComplete

You could win prizes!  From Clear and Simple Stamps!

I chose the “Bold Springtime Blooms” color story and used a Clear and Simple Stamps set called “Topiaries“, which is a lovely set with many options.

I first must apologize to Amber, and you,  for the poor quality of my photo – Amber is teaching us how to photograph our projects and I think I failed on this one.  I used the camera on my iPhone 5 and had a difficult time with the lighting.  This was the best of the bunch I snapped.

I have many blogs that I enjoy and bathe in inspiration once I visit them.  But for this challenge, Amber wants us to just choose one so I will share “Neat and Tangled”, specifically the projects done by Danielle Walls.  I love her fresh and clean style.  And Danielle does not need to take a class in photography – her photos are always very beautiful.   I hope you will click over to Danielle’s blog post and enjoy!

Thank you for visiting today.

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

This month the challenge on PTI’s Blog Hop is to make something with a monogram.  I had these little composition books that were waiting to be altered and I decided to get a jump on my little Easter gifts I send out to family.  I used PTI’s  “B & C Monogram Edition” and “Trojan Monogram”.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Papertrey Challenge Entry

ImageI haven’t participated in any stamping challenges for a long time but I was inspired to try out two on Nichole Heady’s blog, celebrating her 6th year in business.

For this challenge we were given several color stories and we were to choose one to use for our project.  I chose the story that had Sweet Blush (the flowers and the button), Hibiscus Burst (the ribbon), Lemon Tart (the cloth on the basket), Spring Moss (the basket and middle framed layer and leaves), and Aqua Mist (the bottom framed layer and sentiment layer).  I used the wonderful Vintage Picnic stamp set and the matching die.

Join me again tomorrow for another challenge card.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Be sure to look for God’s gifts to you today – they are there, in everything.
