Throwback Thursday #6

Today I have a card to share for Wplus9's Throwback Thursday #6,
where I was inspired by this card of Maureen's:

Now, I'm not sure if we had to create a masculine card, 
but Maureen had asked what was the first Wplus9 stamp set that we bought
and for me, that was Fresh Cut Florals.
So I made my card using it.

I love how Maureen split the panel on the diagonal like that, so I did the same!
I stamped everything (flowers, sentiments, leaves) using Fresh Cut Florals
and finished it off with a few PTI rainstones.

Muse Challenge #126

Today I have a card to share for Muse Challenge #126:

Isn't Tracey's card adorable?
The patterned in the background made me think of 
So, I diecut them from a piece of cardstock to make a mask.

Here's my card:

I added the sentiment and flamingo from Fabulous Flamingo
and the coordinating Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts.

I love how fun & summery this feels!

Five for Friday

I cannot believe it is the end of July already!
This month has totally flown by...

1. Last Friday night, I took the kids to our local drive-in, where
we watched Avengers Age of Ultron.

2. It was a bit of a "Marvel weekend", because on Saturday, we drove to Winnipeg
to see Marvel Universe Live!, which was very entertaining,

We also did a little shopping and went to a Lego Builder event at one of the malls.

3. Last night, our church rented the pool in Manitou.
It was a little cool and quite windy, so only Jonah was brave enough to go in the pool.

4. Tonight, we get to go and pick up Sage from camp!
I can't wait to see my best girl and to hear all about her week!

5. I have a card to share for this week's 

Five for Friday Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

I had so much fun making my cow card yesterday, that I decided to add some texture
to a stamped cow from Papertrey Ink's On the Farm.

I diecut some white cardstock using the Tag Sale 7 dies and stamped the background
from on the farm.
I used the dots stamp from Simon Says Stamp's Congratulations stamp set
 to add some kissed texture to my cow.

Five for Friday Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

I layered it all on some American Crafts patterned paper 
& stamped the sentiment from On The Farm.

CAS(E) This Sketch #134

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #134 designed by Chrissy Larson:

Since it's my husband's birthday today, I decided to use the sketch
to make his birthday card.
I also used PTI's On The Farm stamp set & dies,
since I vowed when I bought the set when it was released several years ago
that I would use it every year for his birthday card. ;)

CAS(E) This Sketch 134 Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

I diecut the clouds and hills using some Pretty Pink Posh border dies.
I smoothed some dark chocolate ink onto some white cardstock
and then diecut the cows from it, so I got some cool markings on them.

I'm also linking this up to this week's 

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, August 6th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!

Wplus9 Get Sketchy with Joni #2

Today, I have a card to share that I made for

Isn't this a fun sketch?
I decided to use my new Watercolored Anemones stamp set to create my card.

Wplus9 Get Sketchy with Joni #2 Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

I stamped the anemones on a piece of white linen cardstock and cut it out by hand.
I also stamped some of the flowers on the panel background,
as well as on the corners of the raised panels on the front of the card.
The sentiment is from Wplus9's Fresh Cut Florals.

Shine layout

Today, I have a scrapbooking layout to share that I made
using some Webster's patterned paper & some Reverse Confetti  products.

This fabulous quote from the  God is Good stamp set makes me think of stars,
so I chose this fun piece of patterned paper that shows the constellations for my background.

Shine Layout Leigh Penner @leigh148 @reverseconfetti #reverseconfetti #scrapbookinglayouts

I matted my photo and stamped my sentiment on some Bazzill Basics CS White cardstock.
I had fun stamping my sentiment in three colours to five an ombre effect:
PTI''s enchanted evening, Heidi Swapp's mint & PTI's aqua mist.

Shine Layout Leigh Penner @leigh148 @reverseconfetti #reverseconfetti #scrapbookinglayouts

I diecut the three flags below the photo from enchated evening, 
aqua mist and the Bazzill CS White using one of the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts.

Cards for Sage for camp

Well, today, we're taking Sage to camp for the week.
I know I will survive five days without my best girl (as I did last year),
but I will definitely miss her a lot!

I made her some cards that she can read each night & they also include the blessing
that I say to my kids each night before they go to sleep.
On each one, I stamped the little fox from Mama Elephant's Three Amigos stamp set
as well as the "happy camper" from PTI's Summer Camp stamp set.
I used my MISTI to stamp the fox and sentiment in the same spot on each card
and then changed up the "scenery" to highlight different aspects of camp.

Here's Monday's card:

I stamped the trees and tent from Summer Camp.
For all of my cards, I pressed ink onto my acrylic block and 
applied it to my card with a paintbrush & water.

Tuesdays card highlights horseback riding.
The fence is a Pretty Pink Posh die and the horse is a PTI On the Farm die.

They have a lake with a beach at camp, so here, on Wednesday's card,
the little fox is hanging out on the beach.
The little jar is from a Studio Calico stamp set.

And Thursday's card includes a night time scene stamped with Summer Camp.

So, now I just need to count down the days until I can go and pick 
up my best, best girl.
Four days to go....
I can do this, right?
