You have through Sunday July 9 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on July 10 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Sunflower Rake! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

When I think of sunflowers, I seem to gravitate toward a blue & yellow color palette. And it went that way here when I came across this blue & white striped paper then found the printed flower paper went so well w/ it. The Sunflower die  was die cut a couple of times..once out of the flower pattern paper & once out of the blue stripe then layered as seen. I added a white scallop circle & yellow stitched circle behind it to add a little more weight. The papers were all die cut & layered & I added a yellow Dragonfly to the side of the sunflower. The two words were combined to make the greeting. 

Here’s a look at the inside using some leftover pieces.

Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge so a big congrats to AJ Bodine (aka rutabagapie)! Her gallery is full of beautifully colored images & fun designs. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I liked the image running over onto the circular frame & the flower theme so I kept those, but I used different images, different colors & I used a die cut for the greeting instead of stamping it.

I’ve had this image for awhile & I’ve been wanting to get it out & use it. So today is the day! After coloring,  I smoothed out the blends a little using Prismacolor pencils then I die cut it a couple of times w/ 2 sizes of large ovals.  I didn’t have a pierced oval that large so I did it the old fashioned way…w/ the SU piercing set. The outer frame is actually popped up just a bit from the  rest of the image. Due to the size of the image, there wasn’t a lot of room left for a greeting but I had a die cut that fit in pretty well. I double stacked it, black on white to give it a little depth.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC603), I chose This scrapbook page. I don’t really do scapbooking so mine is a card  😀 but I liked the silhouette images against the sky. 
For the background, I used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique by smooshing the brown Distress inks onto my craft sheet, misting pretty heavily, then pressing mostly the bottom half of my water color paper on top. (Repeat this until you get the coverage you want.) After wiping the sheet off, I repeated this for the top half of my paper using the blue inks. Since watching paper dry is not one of my strong suits, I dried it w/ my heat gun then put  into my Misti and stamped the hiker &  trees w/ the sepia Versfine. I had to stamp them each about 2 or 3 times to get a good impression on this watercolor paper. I used a white marker to edge the panel & the white Prismacolor pencil to highlights to some of the rocks. I had a large brown paint chip & I liked the names of the colors so I let them show at the bottom. The greeting was added on a circle & backed w/ a larger circle from the paint chip.

Here’s a look at the inside.
