A brilliant stamper I know of says, "Angles love curves".  I think this card demonstrates that.  My card also proves that repetition is my friend.  A little card making theory at work today!  I used one itty bitty stamp from this set and ended up with a card I love! 

If you didn't start at the beginning, you will want to!!  Here's the Design Team List:
I hope you enjoyed today's hop.  This is the last day of the June hop.  Thanks for stopping by!

What a fun background this is!  I opened up my stamp set, conditioned it, inked it up and stamped away.  I had grand plans for a fancy one layer card.  Except, I had stamped my background upside down.  You know what stampers say about mistakes right, there are none...only happy accidents.  I quickly planned to cut off my card front, trim it down and pop up another sentiment.  I basically turned my sketch upside down.  The real bonus is that I like this better with all the lovely purple!

If you haven't been through the beginning of the hop, let's get you started!!  Here's the Design Team links:

Look at Chuck!  He totally cleans up!  Several high school seniors in our community got suits like this for Senior Prom.  I can't remember where they found them (one of my co-workers had a son graduate this year), but the suits have all these wild patterns.  Don't believe me, check out this link.  Chuck is ready for the dance and only needs a partner.  I borrowed the Wow! sentiment from another Paper Doll set called Paper Doll Paige Formal Wear.

Let's finish up the hop!!  If you didn't start at the beginning, you might want to go back and not miss a bit of Chuck.  Here's the Design Team List:

Scor-Pal More Than One Score, the Wedding edition

Hello Crafty Friends!  We are knee-deep in June and the Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge for June has a wedding theme.  Lois is our hostess and she has a cute box tutorial on the Scor-Pal blog.  I don't know about you, but it seems like I am always shy on wedding cards in my stash, so I created one for this challenge.  I opted for an off-kilter gate-fold style of card with a monster wedding cake on it.
Here you can see the card opened up a bit with room for a message inside.
Here the card is closed.  It is held by one tiny flower on the left hand side.  

There is about a week and half left to play this challenge.  Good luck to you!

Details - Stamps: Occasional Quotes (SU); Paper: Snow Storm Smooth (MFT), Blush Blossom (SU); Ink: Blush Blossom, London Fog; Accessories: Scor-Pal, Fancy Fan embossing folder, Candy Cane Strip embossing folder, SU flower punch, glue dots, stampin' dimensionals, Recollection rhinestones, baby brayer, square punch.

Hey there!  How about a little drive today?  I would love to take a drive down this tree-lined dirt road.  How about you?  All I used here was a little color and a little imagination...and a Copic multiliner.  Voila!  I have a hillside and blue sky to go with my dirt road.  My in-house critic (read: 9 year old daughter), informed me when I just had my trees stamped in and my road sketched in, that my card was pretty plain.  After brushing her teeth, my road is much better and my trees look better too.  Ah, the magic of markers!

Let's get started!! Here's the Design Team:

As soon as I saw this cool new set, I thought of all the great MFP flower sets to combine with it.  I continued to think this set and all the crafty things that you can do with terra cotta pots.  I snooped around Pinterest and came up with this fun idea.  Everyone loves Mickey, right?  I love this card and it went together really quickly!  I think we will see quite a bit of masking with this set, what do you think?
