WELCOME TO THE ROXYBONDS TEAM BLOG HOP!!

This month we are featuring paper from the Surf’s UP.

If you have come from Stephanie’s Blog than you are in the right place.

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, we are gearing up to go to Florida next month.  So I know we will have a lot of beach photos.   Now all I have to do when we return is print the photos and my layout is complete. I you want to check out my other two page layout using the Surf’s up paper pack you can see it here.

Surf's Up - having some fun- layoutFor this layout I used Crystal Blue cardstock for my base.  I then cut out waves, using my Silhouette, as a mask and  then used my spay pen with daisy white ink to crate the waves.  I used the Surf”s Up WOTG, Tropical Paradise and My Sunshine stamp sets.  I did do quite a bit of fussy cutting for this layout but the effect made it worth while.

Now hop on over to Amber’s Blog to see her wonderful creation.

Mother’s Day Card

Last year I did not pay attention to the fact Mother’s day was right around the corner so I was left scrambling to create my Mother’s day cards.  This year I am a head of the game!!  If you have noticed I have been exploring the different types of special fold cards there are out there.  I picked the cascading card to design for my Mother’s day card as it could resemble a bouquet of flowers.  This card could easily be converted to any occaion card just by changing the sentiment.  You will see in a future post that I changed the sentiment for my May workshop.

For this card I used Kraft cardstock for the base and then used on of my boarder punches to give it the unique detail.  I then cut Lagoon cardstock to fit on each of the panels.  Using the Perfect fit – Mom stamp set I stamped the sentiment in Gypsy.  I used my Silhouette to cut out the flowers and leaves that match up with the flowers and leaves from the Girls Rock stamp set. I then used Gypsy, Buttercup, Pear, Smoothie and Lagoon inks to stamp the flowers.  For one of the smaller flowers I used the Happy Thoughts and for the Mom stamp insert in the larger flower I used the Perfect Fit – Mom stamp set. I also used the April SOTM’s adorable bird and stamped it using a two tone effect.

Once I photographed this card I realized it really needed something else so I went back and added Bitty Opaques and Sparkles.  Notice the difference?  it really completed the card.
