Days of Summer

Can you tell that I'm just loving Summer? Although it's hot, we've been so lucky to have trade winds! =) It's time for another Roses on Paper Challenge and we want to see you create a card with stamps that you can get from the store but also to include any kind of punches on your card and to choose a sketch from a challenge blog. I know there are tons of punches out there, and I can't wait to see what all of you will be making! The card I made uses Tilda and the flowers from the Summer collection. I have masked the flowers behind her to make it look like she is one entire stamp. Then I punched flowers and added them to each corner. My sketch came from the Just Magnolia Challenge blog.
This next card I have is created for my August OCS (one card swap). I've used a cutie from the third collection of the Gorjuss Girls. For those of you who are not familiar with the one card swap, Teri decided one day that she'd like to swap cards with others, but ONLY to just swap a card and nothing else. So, if you'd like to do the same like the rest of us, be sure to check out her blog for her posting that says it's time to sign up for the OCS...easy peasy! =) I know today is also time for another Christmas Stampin' All Year Long but I will be posting my card for you tomorrow as well as some of the goodies I got this weekend! Have a Happy Monday!

Hola Jodi,
I was cruising through cardmaking bloggers and I ran into your INKED INSPIRATIONS, which I am glad I did. Love your cards. I have seen a few but yours was very insparational. You pick the right name for your blog. Love your creations I am a fan of 3D affects, which makes your cards outstandingly brilliant. I just wanted to share my thoughts with you and Congrats you on your stunning site. I am a card maker but don't use stamps, which I have been think of trying. :) TFS, Mima
