Two for Tuesday with Lilypad Lake

Well hello there!
Remember me?

I know it has been so long since I've blogged and I am sorry for that! (I feel like I'm repeating myself each post.). I promise, I'm going to be back to consistently blogging.  I'm in the works of getting a brand new watermark and logo and I'm very excited about it, so stay tuned!

Today I had some time to sit down and stamp and decided to check out some challenges to help my MOJO come back!  I also wanted to use this lovely set called Lilypad Lake that will be available NEXT FRIDAY!  (Can you believe the new catalog is a little over a week away??)

I chose a color you may have never seen - or at least one you haven't seen in awhile - Coastal Cabana.  Loooooove this color!  Think "light Bermuda Bay".  Very beachy!

This first card I made is from the Freshly Made Sketches sketch from this week.  I guess the challenge ended yesterday, but I decided to go with it anyway.  I really liked the look.

Look at those cute little sailboats!  A little Stampin' Dimensional for some extra detail.

My favorite part is actually this cluster of ribbons.   To make the special Berry Burst ribbon, I took the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon cutting off the silver edge and fraying the ribbon a bit.

For the second card, I chose the sketch from the Fab Friday Challenge blog.  

I liked the simple look of the sketch.  Sometimes something simple can help someone ease back into stamping!  This challenge is similar to another from last week so I have been looking at it for awhile!

I embossed the lily pads with white emboss powder and colored the images with both Stampin' Write markers and Blends.

I wasn't sure I would ever use the lilypads but I'm glad I gave them a shot.  They work well with the sentiment. 

Thanks so much for checking out my blog today!  Have a wonderful day!
