iPICKS, Week 68

Welcome to iPICKS where I post a selection of my favorite Stampin' Up! cards and projects by other talented stamping artists. There's no formal rules or guidelines ... just inspiring projects that catch my eye, clever ideas, and exceptional designs. These are projects that inspire me and I hope they inspire you too! Please click on each link to go directly to the artist's blog for more information about the artist and their project.

iPICKS for Week 68 ...


Just had to sneak another card in this weekend. It's been forever since I've had a chance to participate in Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try Challenge, and was anxious to break in my new Daisies #2 Sissix Die. I love that big, bold daisy! The Daisies #2 die makes three daisy sizes. For my card, I made two of each size then ran them through the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder. The Summer Sun Corduroy Brad is the perfect daisy center!

This card will be going to my mom. I started sending her a card a day a few weeks ago but have had a hard time keeping up. (Yes, there goes that full-time day gig I've got going gettin' in the way of my stamping time!). I'm now down to a few cards a week. I want her to know how absolutely fabulous she is while she goes through her radiation treatments!

My card is inspired by this card by Mikki Madden.
