Creative Sunday

I love a lazy, creative Sunday, and that's exactly what today was for me. 

I have three cards to share today for three challenges that inspired me. 

First up is this week's Muse Challenge . . . 

I was inspired by the background stamp on the left, although I went with a different color scheme (and different stamps, dies, embellishments . . . but you know what I mean).  

I used supplies from my new Stamp of Approval box from Catherine Pooler.  The supplies were from the "friendship" box which has already sold out.  Mine arrived last week, and I will tell you that it has been awesome fun!  

Highly recommend you get on the waiting list for the next box. 

My second card was inspired by this week's Freshly Made Sketch . . .

And here is my card . . .

On this card I used supplies from The Stamps of Life's Stamp and Die of the month, and I used pattern papers from the April Card Kit.  I love how this one turned out using felt for the t-shirt.  I have a few more of these in the works.  Oh the possibilities!

And then finally, for Color Throwdown, some colors that leaned a little toward fall . . .

 More Stamps of Life for this one . . . the latest Monthly Card kit (August). 

I got matchy, matchy with all the chevron pattern papers.  For the "happiness" sentiment, I started with a piece of white cardstock which I inked up in black.  I then used layers of clear embossing powder.   Super thick and shiny!  Love how it turned out. 

It was a great weekend for creating.  I hope you were inspired to do something crafty.
