A Good Day to Play

My friend, Lisa, texted last night, "Scrapbook a bit tomorrow?"  We rarely get the chance to scrap together since she lives 2000 miles and a few time zones away.  My response, "Yes!  I need the creative inspiration!"  Lisa wanted to do something with masking and asked if I had any ideas.  When we signed onto Skype this morning, I still had no idea what we would make.  Winging it, this is what I came up with...

We cut out a fun overlay from the Travel Mini-Album (pg 39) with the new Cricut Artbooking cartridge, temporarily adhered the overlay onto a piece of Colonial White cardstock cut to the same size, and sponged the design using Buttercup, Sunset, and Slate inks.  The color combination was inspired by my favorite new paper pack, Babycakes.  I added a piece of the stripe paper from the Babycakes pack, color ready ribbon inked with Buttercup and Sunset, a dimensional tag stamped with words from the Card Word Puzzle stamp set, and a sentiment from the School Years stamp set.  Oh, and to dress up the masked background a wee bit, I added a small dot of Almond Glitz to the center of each sunburst.  Not bad for a spur of the moment idea!  I'm going to enter this card in the H2H July 1 challenge.  Be sure to check out all of the beautiful artwork on the Heart 2 Heart blog and try a challenge or two while you're there.

Take a peek at Lisa's blog too!  She's been creating up a storm lately!
