This or That Sketches

Hi friends!! This or That Stampin' has morphed into This or That Sketches, at least for last week.  My followers had a choice of these: 

"That" won:

And here is the card made with that sketch for inspiration: 

I used the Hey Chuck stamp set and the Fresh as a Daisy DSP. 

Which was your choice? How did I do?

Inspire Create Share Blog Hop: Technique Showcase


Hi friends!! Welcome to the Inspire Create Share August Blog Hop. This month we are spotlighting techniques. I have no idea what my team mates selected for their techniques and I cannot wait to hop through and see all the samples. I hope to see some past ones making a come back and some new (to me) ones too! 

 I love the Sea Turtle Stamp Set. I have used so many different background techniques, bubble wrap, water color, etc. and now the Masking Tape technique. It is one I haven't done in years, and thought it would be fun to show it again.

So, without further ado, here are the steps: 

1. Press the masking tape (or painters tape) into the ink pad: 

2. Press the tape onto the card: 

3. and Voila! Then repeat with whatever colors you want, until you have the look you want. 

Here is my completed card using this technique: 

The colors I used are, starting from bottom up: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, Boho Blue, & Balmy Blue.

I hope you try and enjoy this technique! I would love to see what you do with it! 

Janey is up next, and using the new online exclusive Trucking Along bundle. I am curious what technique she is using. Hop on over with me to see.

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

IDEAS Blog Hop: Fun Fold


Hello friends! Time for another IDEAS Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Fun Folds!
I love an easy, but WOW! fun fold! How about you?! I have a few go to's, but for this tutorial bundle, I wanted to find one that I hadn't done before. I featured the Origami Window Fun Fold. It definitely met my criteria. 

We had 15 demonstrators from all over the world participate this month. What does this mean to you? Over 68 color pages of instructions for 15 different fun folds! Some I have seen before and some I haven't! I am excited to try a few of these out! There are some bonus projects included too!! 

Here is a collage with some snippets of our work:

Since my work is exclusive to the bundle, I normally show a bonus project. Unfortunately, we have been visiting family in Missouri and due to a storm, our leaving has been delayed by a day. I didn't make it home in time to make an alternate project. So here is a close up sneak peek of my project instead:
