Inspired By Challenge...Backyard BBQ

Well hello!  I hope you are enjoying your summer doing whatever it is you enjoy doing!  I most certainly am.  One of them is card challenges.  I am playing along once again with the inspired by challenge.  Here is the inspiration:

I knew right away that my card was going to be patriotic and what supplies I was going to use because a few months ago, I picked up a sweet pack of ephemera, by Pink paislee.  The collection is called Sweet Freedom.  I also picked up this star collage stamp from the same stamping convention in Akron, Ohio.  It is created by Technique Junkies and it is called star collage.

Check out my clean and simple card right here:

I absolutely love this tag!  I think it is gorgeous!

Well, thanks for stopping by and come back soon!

Happy Fourth to my friends in the USA!

Keep crafting in love and peace,

Inspired By Challenge

Hello all!  I hope everyone is enjoying their summer; I know I am.  I have been doing a little planting, some sitting on my porch, and of course, plenty of crafting.  Today I am participating in the Inspired By challenge (summer on the porch).  Go here for details, theseinspiredchallenges.blogspot.com.  This is my very first time participating in this challenge.  Now that I am off for the summer, maybe I'll participate in more.  We'll just have to see what happens.  I'll keep you updated.  For this card, I used my now favorite stamp ever, a Unity Stamp called You Are Forever Beautiful.  This stamp is gorgeous!  It is a joy to color.  It is also huge.  The pretty lady is from Unity's July 2014 Kit of the Month.  This is my first time inking her up.  Wow! Right?!  I know.  My excuse is so many stamps, not enough time.  LOL

Oh!  I almost forgot!  Participants have a chance of winning a fabulous prize package of Unity stamps!  This is the good stuff!

Thanks for stopping by!  See you soon!
Keep crafting in love and peace,

Friends of Unity Blog Hoppers, June 2018, Masculine

Hey there!  Are you ready for another great hop?  I hope so, cause we got some masculine cards for you.  Here is mine:

The truck is from Unity's March 2018 Kit of the Month, stay classy, and the sentiment is from Let Adventure designed by Jolande van Oosterhout and Marleen van Meerendonk.  I used several layers of pattern paper from different companies.  The negative die cut is Basic Grey.  I really miss this company.  The sky was colored with Prima water soluble oil pastels.  Grass was colored with a Prima watercolor pencil.  The truck was colored with Prima red rust effect paste.  I added a little water to the paste to make it more of a water color than a paste.  If you use this paste at full strength, you get a nice rusty, grainy texture.  It's really cool.  I colored the tires with Prima water soluble Graphite sticks.  These are really fun to use too.

Oh I almost forgot!  There are two giveaways this month, so make sure you visit everyone and leave some love.  Good luck!

Well, I hope you enjoyed our little hop.  Next up is the lovely, Jeanie!  Make sure to leave her some love.
