Inspired By Logos

Thursday, June 30, 2011

I've always loved this logo.  On the treadmill yesterday it hit me, Modern Basics would be perfect for this.  I jumped off the treadmill and made a little note, I tend to forget:)  I used just about every ink color that I have..just about;)

Are there any logos that inspire you?

I've also entered it into the Embellish Rainbow Challenge!

Twinkle Twinkle

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

I loved Debbie's interpretation of this week's Make It Monday technique.  I was really inspired to incorporate some of her ideas into a card of my own.  To make my mask for this card I used the button boutique die to cut the rounded rectangle frame.  Using a die makes making a frame much easier and fool proof!   

Have a great day!

Make It Monday #21: 2 Step Masking

For this week's MIM, I used my Mat Stack #1 die to create my mask.  This is a really cool technique.  Check out Nichole's video and try it yourself! 

Happy Monday!

Papertrey June Blog Hop: Photo Inspiration

We thought we would start a short inspirational series with the Blog Hops for the next few months as a fun way to spice things up! This month we are providing you with a beautiful photo to help trigger some creative ideas with color! This inspirational photo is just dreamy and it's the perfect thing to give you a creative jumpstart that will lead to nothing but fabulous results! We look forward to seeing everyone's interpretations using this inspiration! 

I loved Nichole's card from her most recent release.  I wanted to try her technique and it fit so well with this month's blog hop inspiration photo.

Thanks for stopping by.
Can't wait to see what you've made!!

I can't cook.  I can make a few simple things (Mom, stop laughing!).  It just seems like a lot more work than it's worth.  My husband, on the other hand, loves to cook.  It's a way for him to be creative and he is very good at it.  So, while he's cooking I am usually getting our lunches made for the following day or helping him with some prep.  I'm good at chopping:)  Since he is so into what he's doing, it is the perfect time for me to slip little notes into his lunch without him seeing.  He'll get this one tomorrow!

See you later!

School's Out!

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

I am officially on summer vacation. 
We had to go in for a bit today to tie up loose ends and sign out. 
I'm so excited for some time off!

This is a simple card that I just love. 

Hope you are having a great day!

Make It Monday #20: Reverse Masking

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

(click above image to watch the video)
This week's MIM is Reverse Masking.  I die cut mat stack 5 from a piece of lightweight computer paper.  I used repositionable adhesive to keep my mask in place.  Each time I placed the mask I rubbed white ink onto the exposed area to define the shape.  Then I stamped the stem and flower images over the light, white ink.  I wanted the background to be the star, but it still needed something more.  I just added a simple bow and hanging heart.

See you tomorrow!
