COF June Challenge

Hi Blog land friends,

Its the end of the month again and that means COF Challenge is here.

This month it was my turn and I wanted something that screamed "Fun in the Sun" .
I wanted to see:

A Sun, something Blue, at least one thing using Pop dots, and some Summer toys, bike, swimming toys, what ever is your ideal of Summer toys ,I wanted  to do something with the inside of my card , I just love how some of the ladies do theirs and this is something I wanted to work on myself so what better way. So I hope everyone enjoyed and had fun with this months Challenge. Make sure to hop on over to all of the COF and see their exciting creations. Listed on my side bar.

So here is the card I created:

This little Chanito was one that I put on my desk months ago to use and was my inspiration for my COF Challenge , I first used some left over paper I used for some bottle wraps I made for a party the first of the month, then stamped my cute Monkey , I masked his inner tube then stamped my layers of water using some foam stamps I had gotten Yikes 10 years ago that had never been opened from Making Memories, the sun and beach ball are also from this set, I cut some wavy paper to look like sand dunes and layered it with the top one on pop dots, for my sand castle and bird I used a Inkadinkado stamp and cut the bird off and stuck him behind the layer of sand I used pop dots for the castle ,  for the inside I used the same sky paper and cut a plane using the Beep Beep cricut cartridge and the banner from the Baby Shower cricut cartridge and this cute stamp Fun-n-Sun ( sorry no name on it , funny how we find things we never use) and stamped a wave across the bottom.

As I was making this card we got an invite for our great Nephew's 6 birthday party at the beach so you know where this card will be heading.

Make sure to check back at the end of July to see what are talented Linda of has asked us to come up with .

Guy gets Girl Engagement card

Happy Sunday ! Hope your all having a Wonderful Day!
Today I have another Engagement card this is an 8x5 card  .
I love these stamp and use them for so many cards, One is  called Iguanna Love from Stampendous and the other is Birch Buddies from Stampendous.
I first stamped my trees one on each side of my paper then stamped in my Iguana then the little grass , hearts and the little owl looking down , I used my cricut pretty pennant cartridge for the top and bottom of my card , For the inside I stamped my trees, owl and grass again and this time put the Iguanna stamp with the happy couple kissing I then added a banner using again Pretty pennant cartridge and cut some letters saying Congrats.

Love is in the Air

I used Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background, spellbinder's for my cut out and used pop dots make it stand out, this cute owl stamp I've had for years from stampendous , some white ribbon from my stash ( if you hate when you cut your ribbon and it frays check out "fray check" from Joann's it is awesome and makes your ribbon so clean.) I then added a double hung heart from my stash with some wire . for the inside I embossed the same color as my background and wrote a wish for the Happy Couple.

Hope you all have a Wonderful Day filled with Sunshine , Smiles and Love
