Hello Love Party

***This is my second post of the day.  For my CASology post please scroll down or 

I've got 3 cards for 6 challenges to share this afternoon and most of them are pretty last minute so I'm going to get right to it!

First up is an entry for the washi tape challenge at The Male Room, the Simon Says Wednesday masculine challenge and the Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes challenge. I broke out some NBUS Stampin' Up washi tape to use for the sea because the scalloped pattern on it reminded me of waves.  Then I paper pieced and popped up a Paper Smooches sail boat on top of it, added a sentiment and done!  A super simple CAS card!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sailboat & sentiment from Wicked Nauticool) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Washi Tape:  Stampin' Up

Next up is a card using the Curtain Call inspiration photo and the Just Us Girls word prompt - summer.  I took the colours from the beach balls and the summer theme and came up with this little love card.  These Lawn Fawn bathing suits stamp are some of my oldest and also my favourites. They're just so cute!  The background paper is hard to see but there are tiny waves on it.  It's from studio Calico's Atlantic 6x6.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Real Red) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Yellow from Let's Polka, Navy from Pint-Sized Patterns Beachside) Lawn Fawn, (Waves from Atlantic 6x6) Studio Calico
Stamps:  (Bathing suits from Swimsuit Season, Heart from Happy Everything) Lawn Fawn, (Sentiment from Perfect Match) Sweet Stamp Shop
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

Last but not least is a card for the Just Add Ink inspiration image challenge.  I immediately thought of this Papertrey Ink die and was excited to finally put it to work.  I added Wink of Stella to the balloons so they are shimmery as well as the gold background. Sparkles all around!  Okay that's it for me.  Time to head back to work.  Hope you're all having a lovely day!  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Brushed Gold) Stampin' Up
Dies:  Papertrey Ink
Glitter:  (clear Wink of Stella) Zig

Deborah Frings said...

Jen - these are all just fabulous. I really like your use of the Washi tape to make the sea - works perfectly and that's a sweet boat! Thanks so much for playing along with The Male Room this week!

Nancy said...

Love each one of these Jen! But would have to say that the washi tape was very clever to use for the water on the first card and love the polka dot bathing suit on the second one! Super all around! Thanks for joining the team and I over at Just Us Girls for our summer challenge!

Lindsey said...

You really do have the best collection of washi tape. What a fun nautical card! But then the second card is so much fun, too! The third card — more goodness with its bold design!

Christine Blain said...

Jen, I love your balloon card! How cool is that die, with which you've created a bold, graphic, design? Love all the shimmer. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

Lynn said...

All of your cards are awesome Jen...but I am in love with the we go together card. So stinking fun! Thanks so much too for playing with us at PaperSmooches Sparks!

Joyce said...

You had such a productive and crafty day. Good to see it. All your cards are so adorable. I think I am most in love with the first. Love how you used the washi tape and sail boat together.

Jodene said...

Fantastic cards Jen. Love the sweet little sail boat on the first one... the polka-dot bathing suit is so stylish on the second... and oh, those balloons... the metallic paper looks great with teal and black. Thank you for playing along with us at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

Jen the PTI die was just made to go with the inspiration picture. I love the bright blue of the balloons and wonderful gold sheen of the background. Very classy! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

Oh Jen, I love the waves... washi tape, huh? So perfect! Now your bathing suits are cool and retro ... must be a couple of skinny-dippers running around the beach =] I love that PTI die every time I see it and think, why didn't I order that? Fun cards!
