I have three co-workers that work with me at the library on Thursday evenings... and their initials are P, B & J. So when I got this stamp set recently from Sugar Pea Designs, I decided to make them each a card to decorate their work spaces:

I found some time to create a second card for the 2018 Spring & Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop tonight! My niece was here visiting this week, and brought along this great stamp set from Concord & 9th for me to try... and I bought some new Simple Stories papers to go with it. I made two of them!
I used the Fusion sketch & photo as my inspiration!
Patterned papers are Oh Baby! by Simple Stories; Stamp set is Concord & 9th; Dies are MFT Circle STAX & From the Heart by Verve; Cocoa ink is Memento; Copic markers.

If you scroll back a few posts, you'll see my efforts using the Tim Holtz Wine Blueprint Minis... and today I'm doing the Beer Minis version. I again pulled out some Distress Oxide inks for the backgrounds, using Twisted Citron, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon & Blueprint Sketch. The edging dies are the Spellbinder's Hemstitched Rectangles:

I'm just posting this under the wire tonight... playing along with the Fusion Card Challenge, using both their sketch and inspiration photo. I new that I had this old CTMH stamp set with the vintage phones, so I dug it out along with another CTMH set for the sentiment. I used Lawn Fawn's Polka in the Meadow papers and a few YNS gumdrops to finish it off:

I've had a few new crafty items come my way recently, and decided to pull one out and make a card for a couple of challenges today. I've used the Inspired By photo as my colour inspiration, and used the May sketch on the Pattern Happy blog. I don't own any Pattern Happy stamps, but this stamp set is very similar to one that they carry:
I just happened to win this "Cool Treats" Stampin' Up set on the Inspired By challenge a few weeks ago, and had fun stamping all of the ice cream treats. Stay tuned for a few more in the near future.
