House of Cards

Welcome to our House of Cards Blog Hop! We have come to the end of our third term over at House of Cards and are saying a fond farewell to some of our DT members! It has been a real honor and pleasure working with these talented ladies and I’m thrilled to continue on with the Design Team to bring you beautiful challenges every month! To say goodbye and thank you, we’re celebrating with a very special blog hop this month!  This hop will run from June 1st at 6:00am CST through June 15, noon, CST. Any card style is welcome! This is also a DT call too! You can get all of the details from the House of Cards blog right here:

You should have arrived from Merethe’s blog here: Merethe

Here is this month’s inspirational photo!


We’ve got some fabulous sponsors to share with you AND some fabulous prizes!  Be sure you leave a comment at each person’s blog along the way because the prizes are hidden and we’ll be doing random drawings from the blogs! When you’ve finished the hop, make a creation to share over at House of Cards for another chance to win!

Here are all of our fabulous sponsors. Our team has used a variety of products from these amazing companies!






There is SO much to be inspired by in this colorful photo! I selected a few of my favorite elements to combine them in this bright spring shaker card filled with pink and green glass micro beads!


Just look at those amazing blooms and patterned paper! I used papers from the Citrus Sunshine Collection and Summer Garden Silk Flowers from Eclectic Anthology!



You can easily mix and match the beautiful images, alter the size of the flowers, or fade and enhance the color saturation and print our beautiful digital images to use in your projects.


I used the fabulous distressed striped pattern for the background, and the green and coral dot pattern for the shaker window. I wanted to capture all that bright pink and orange from the inspiration photo against the black window frame and bright green leaves. The die cut fronds are from Memory Box.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project using digital images from Eclectic Anthology! Your next hop on the blog is the wildly creative Monika

Thanks for joining us today!

Live your life in color!
