Hi, Friends! Back here after a little hiatus to participate in this week's MIM. I have been so blessed and thrilled each time I have participated in these little weekly and monthly share times with Papertrey Ink. I am blessed by the sweet comments of encouragement and praise and sometimes thrilled because I have actually won some PTI gift certificates. Hey, if you don't enter, you can't win.
This week, Dawn showed us how to make rainbow medallions on our cards. Well, I went to Dawn for even more inspiration for my project and Cased something she made just a couple of months ago in the way of a rainbow circle from Tiny Tags. Hers were die cut and arranged, but I stamped mine flat on the card front. I traced a circle 1 3/4" on my paper and then simply lined up the tag stamps and went around the circle. It actually lined up really well as it wasn't a symmetrical number of tags stamped. Woohoo!!! Thanks, Dawn, for all your awesome creativity. You are by far my favorite of the design team, and your projects consistently make me want to purchase more stamps and make it into my Pinterest archives.
Here is my project.

This is my last entry to the June Papertrey Blog Hop. I really wanted to make a card inspired by the striped comforter on the bed. So I framed my stripes with Summer Sunrise card stock, which mirrors the bed frame in that color. Next I striped a focal piece of white card stock with the new Ombre Builders stamp set, which I love for quick and easy backgrounds. Then I used my new Wet Paint die cuts and stamps to make my sentiment. Done. So very quick and easy. I can't wait to try more color schemes with this. The comforter has some diamond stripes across the solid stripes of colors, and I thought I could recreate that with the argyle stamps, but I kind of like the simplicity of this better.
Enjoy the blog hop.Stamps: Ombre builders, Wet Paint 1
Inks: summer sunrise, aqua mist, melon berry, orange zest, hibiscus burst, black
Dies: wet paint

Here is my third card for the June Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink. I chose to use the Framed Out series to make this card. This sketch stumped me a little. I used the color scheme of Raspberry, Hibiscus Burst, Harvest Gold, Teal, and Spring Rain. I like how it turned out. I spritzed the whole card front with shimmer smooch spritz, and used some glitter Stickles on my star to make it look extra festive. It is quite sparkly in real life.
I thought the blue frame looked like it had confetti in it, from afar, and the yellow frame looked like it had just a solid white/vellum look to it, so I used a vellum star cutout in my yellow frame that I glittered to make it stand out and confetti sparkles in my blue frame and around the cluster in general.

This card uses the sketch and color combo cards for this blog hop. I thought the trendy triangles worked great for the banner. A bright and cheery card. Colors used are Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Aqua Mist, Hibiscus burst, and melon berry.
I used the sketch given but not the color combo given for this card. The sectioned circle image just called out for red, white and blue since July is fast approaching. I have a very sweet friend whose birthday is in July, so this one is for her.
