Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop Challenge ~

Hey there!  I just had to play along with the Papertrey Ink blog hop this month.  The inspiration picture is just too lovely!

I used the colors as part of the jump off for a quick card I needed for my brother’s birthday as well as the design from this amazing card done by Amy Sheffer.  I couldn’t think of any arrow type stamps that I had except for the PTI Ikat set.dcs bday

It’s stamped in Stampin’ Up’s Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe.  The smaller one is stamped in Memento Dandelion.  I only had a couple hours to make a few cards needed, so I really CASEd every little detail on Amy’s card.  The numbers are from the By the Numbers border die.  The buttons are Melon Berry, Spring Moss and Hawaiian Shores.  Sorry for the quality of the photo – I couldn’t find my camera, so I snapped this on my craft desk with my phone. 

I really loved the look of this card, so I did another one for Zane’s Kindergarten teacher.  I added Strawberry Slush into the color combo on this one and love, love, LOVE it!

The sentiment came from the Wonderful Words: Teacher stamp set along with the die.  It is cut 4 times and glued together to give it even more dimension as well as stability.  The buttons are Hawaiian Shores, Berry Sorbet and Melon Berry.

Have fun on the hop!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Two fabulous cards. This color challenge I could take or leave, but your additions to the palette make aqua and melon berry soar. I really enjoy your round themed compositions too. Thanks for sharing your inspiring cards!
