Sun, Clouds, Crabs, etc

I have a fun mixture to share with you today.
 Cath at Moxie Fab issued a challenge the other day to use the color MINT and I was right there to create something. I used Kimber's Saturday sketch at 2 Peas for the layout of my card. The label shape is cut with my Cricut.  This also fits the Cas-ual Friday challenge for square cards.
 I just received this adorable little stamp set from PaperTrey, Inc and I just had to give these adorable clouds a chance.  I stamped the clouds and the sun with white ink on white cardstock and embossed them with white embossing powder.  Now I took each piece and "colored" them with Distress Stain. I love using the Stains and the white embossed image acts as a resist so the image stays white and the background paper gets colored.
 Here is the sketch I used.
 Next up, I used the Freshly Made sketch
 I printed out some digital elements I had purchased from Echo Park. I love using digital images, I love that you get to pick the size you want them to be.
 Do you just love this guy???
 And, for the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this week.  The Stamps of Life is our sponsor.  I am using her amazing hexagon set. 
 The set includes a number of different hexagons in different sizes and patterns.  I used two of the stamps.
I thought this sketch was just so much fun! I pulled out my Kreaxions circle cutter to cut out my largest circle and then pulled out my various paper punches for my other little circles. These are the kind of punches that you pound with a hammer to cut out the circle.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
