Pretty Pink Posh Fall Scene

Sorry I've been missing a bit lately. For some reason I've been locked out of my instagram account. I can add photos but that's it. I can't add a description, follow, like or comment on any of your designs. Please don't give up on me! It's been two weeks, and I don't know how long the block will last but know that I'm trying everything I can to work around it. I'm still posting on Facebook under my page "A Kept Life by Jeanne Jachna"
Today I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches where this is the sketch this week...

I flipped the sketch by adding the smaller circle (Sentiment) at the top of the larger image vs. at the bottom right. I'm also adding at The Paper Shelter challenge where they're looking for cards with animals and pets. 
My card starts with the Pretty Pink Posh Fall Scene colored with Copic Markers and then cut with the Stitched Duo 2 die cut. It's the rectangle shape with the stitched edge. 
To add even more color I assembled a panel of Simple Strips in rainbow colors that coordinate with my copic coloring. I topped the panel with a Scallop Frame Die cut. All that was left was to add the sentiment that I die cut with a circle die.
I hope your smiling and that your day is filled with color!

Fusion Card Challenge - Cactus Cake

Hi friends! Are you looking for a card challenge to play? A new one starts today at Fusion Card Challenge! You'll love this challenge because there are three ways to play.. you can play along with the sketch, be inspired by the photo, or FUSE them together and play with BOTH!

I'm all about the pictures and of course I'm checking out that cake and drooling just a little! I see cacti and pink flowers on an ombre pink background. If you're not feeling the photo or the colors, that's ok.. you can play along with the sketch! 
I'll be honest.. not alot of cactus stamps and dies in my collection at the moment, and I've sort of been looking for an excuse to play with this Waffle Flower Summer Time stamp set because it's got so many cute images and I just love a scene card. It's got a cactus so I'm calling this one good to go!
I colored all the images with Copic Markers and arranged them on a Distress Oxide inked panel.
I arrange the images on a piece of plastic the size of my card base and then layer it over different colors to help me decide what inks to use. 
I decided on a sunrise in the desert for the background. The orange and yellow is bright and fresh.
Now it's your turn! Now it's your turn! Are you ready to play? I wonder how you will interpret the photo! Maybe you need a little more inspiration? Check out designs from the rest of the team. Just click on their names below to jump to their blogs.

Ink Blot Shop Teacher Greetings

Are the kids back in school? I know that every time I ask that I'll get a different answer. The world has really changed hasn't it? Regardless of whether your kids are learning from home or are attending in class you'll want to let their teacher know how much they are needed and appreciated.
The new Ink Blot Shop September release includes a new Teacher Greetings stamp set. I created a stamped sentiment background in rainbow colors. My Misti stamping tool made lining up the sentiment a breeze.
I topped the stamped sentiment with one of the kids from the A Little Something stamp set. There are lots of different kids to choose from so you can personalize your design to look like your favorite student!
The new release includes some background borders and some Farm Friends that you're going to adore! I'll show you more tomorrow!
