June's "Show & Share"

Hello friends!
It gives me great pleasure to start this month's Show & Share.
I am amazed at the responses and would love to continue this monthly feature.
The main goal is to challenge you to create and share with our fellow card-makers.
I am hoping that all participants in this monthly feature can give each other some blog love, offer encouragement and get inspired! Are you gamed!?

This is how it works:
Each month, I will post the link on the 9th day of the month and it will end at 12pm on the 29th day of the month. ONE winner will be announced on June 30th.
To participant in this monthly feature: 
1. link up your new creation(s) and share it here in the gallery. You can use Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest... or blog for your projects.

2. you are most welcome to use WHATEVER in your stash to create. Old or new products are all welcome. You do not need to purchase new products to play. Use what makes you happy.

3. try out new techniques ,styles and products! This is your chance to show off what you make!

4. please link to my blog and mention that you are taking part in Virginia's "Show and Share" and use the blog logo if you can. I hope this will help spread the joy of "show and Share" with more card-makers!

5. please share no more than 4 projects within a month. Basically one project a week is good if you want to link as many as you can.

You can now find this monthly feature link at my side banners. Simply click on it and you can find this very post. I chose 9th day of the month as a cycle because I was born on Dec. 9th.

NEW: Starting this month, I will provide some creative inspiration with the "Show & Share". 
This month's theme is "Die Cut with Pattern Paper".
You can use this as your prompt in your entries. It is totally optional.
Here is my take of this month's inspiration.

it's a celebration

I am using the Spellbinders Card Kit. It comes with a few floral dies. I took out the shape dies (outlines only) and die cut the pattern paper (also from the kit).

As you can see, they are not coordinating stamps and die, but the look is fun and whimsical.

Ready for another month of great project shares. I have tried the die cuts in the past, but it didn't turn out that great. I will give it another try to fit this month's new theme.

This is so beautiful! Great choice of patterned papers :)

Verna Angerhofer said...

Beautiful card and wonderful colors for those flowers.

Maura said...

Yippee, Show and Share time!!!!!! Fun card - I love using pp with die cuts - such a unique look!!!

Nora Noll said...

This is gorgeous!! I LOVE the flowers in the pattern paper. I only do this sometimes but use scraps only. Maybe I should dig out some of my non scrap paper and look for bold designs like you have. It looks AWESOME!

Linda BL said...

Really like the whimsical look of the card. The dies may not actually be coordinating stamps and dies but look great together. I have not tried to do much die cutting with patterned paper but will give it a try for this month's theme.

Love the inspiration piece. I'll dig out my hoard of patterned paper and see what I can come up with.

Cindy C. said...

Oh such fun card!!

Linda W. (ScrappinBari) said...

Just love your party of flowers, Virginia!! Thanks for offering this challenge & for the inspiration!!

Denise Bryant said...

Love the pretty flowers!

Greta said...

Very pretty card, Virginia! Just FYI--the badge on the side goes to the May winner post rather than this post.

Ashwini Rao said...

Your card is such a fantastic inspiration, Virginia! I absolutely love how you've designed the card, added a burst of flowers and sprinkle of sequins and made magic with it!
Unfortunately, I noticed your theme prompt too late! I'll try to make something with it before I submit something next time - I know its optional, but it is more fun that way! :)

Janis said...
