Hello


Hello Peeps!!!

So sorry for neglecting my blog for a bit, I have been so busy!
I have stamped a bit but just didn't have time to blog.

I made this card using the Everything is Rosy Kit and the Floral Essence stamp set that will be available June 4th.

I used the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches for my card.

Great sketch and I worked great for my Melon Mambo Flower.
I watercolored the flower and leaves and cut out to add to my card.


The base of my card is Night of Navy and then the DSP comes from the Everything is Rosy kit.



How about that Flower center, it is par of the Floral Essence suite. I love it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Everything is Rosy


Happy Thursday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the new  Everything is Rosy Product Medley.

This is such a gorgeous suite

I stamped my flowers using Melon Mambo ink and my leaves are
stamped with Pear Pizzazz ink.



I die cut the flowers and leaves with the matching dies.
The paper in this set is beautiful as well.
I die cut the edge piece and viney leaves with the rose gold foil paper.
The sentiment is stamped onto a die cut circle with Night of Navy ink.


The base of y card is Night of Nacy card stock and then a layer of whisper white that I  
embossed with the Basket Weave EF.

I then made a little matching box.


I love to make boxes and figure out the design, I went thorough a few sheets of scrap 
paper to get it right. I am sure I could have found a tutorial somewhere for one like this but
I just like the process of figuring it out myself.

Well, thanks for stopping by today!

I Couldn't Have Picked A Better Friend


Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!

Time for a new challenge at SUO Challenges.

This week it is all about Spring.

Nothing says Spring more than flowers, and you know I love making flowery cards. 

I used the sketch this week at Fab Friday for my card.





I used the Pop of Petals stamp set for my flowers.
I stamped three of each color using Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Melon Mambo.
There is a matching punch with his set but after punching out a couple i ended up fussy cutting as the punch left to much of white around my flowers for the flowers I was creating.


I stamped the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink and cut them out as well.
My flowers are mounted to a piece of whisper white that I die cut with one of the stitched rectangle dies.
My sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.

I found a piece of the black and white gingham paper from the Butterfly gala pack in my scrap pile, I thought I had used it all. But after this card I only have a couple of tiny pieces left.


The flowers and the Sentiment piece are both added to the card with dimensionals.

I used a piece of Melon Mambo card stock for my banner piece. I die cut a piece of whisper white with a edge die from the Be Mine Stitched Dies to layer behind the Melon Mambo banner.

I fussy cut out a pretty little butterfly from the Butterfly Gala DSP and added it just under the flowers.

Be sure and head over to the SUO Challenges Blog, we would 
love to have you join us.

Thanks for coming by today.

Thank You!


Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!

My apologizes for neglecting my blog the last few days. 
I have been super busy and had absolutely zero computer time.
I had my 3 year old grandaughter for a 3 day visit and
we had a blast.
Also I am in the middle of a big sewing project.
I did manage to sneak in my Stampin Up pre-order on Sunday evening
so I am looking forward to a few new goodies later this week.

So anyway, onto my card today.
I told you in my last post that when playing my Bunch of Blossom 
stamp and punch that I had made 
a few flowers in other colors.
This one using Highland Heather.


I used a thick Whisper  White base and some of the 
beautiful Highland Heather gingham paper from the Gingham
Gala DSP pack.
I die cut the flower panel using the Stitched Rectangle dies.
A must have in my opinion. They are amazing.


Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Happy Mother's Day



Happy Thursday Peeps!!!
 
 Today I am sharing a card made using the challenge at Stamps, Ink, Paper Challenge.

I pulled out the fun Bunch of Blossoms with matching punch for my card.
Another retiring set I am sad to see go.

I am sure I will continue to use it.


I used Calypso Coral for my flowers. and Pear Pizzazz for the stems and leaves.
The base of y card is thick Whisper Whie and then a layer of Calypso Coral card stock.
The Calypso Coral DSP is from the Happiness Blooms pack and the Old Olive piece is from the Needlepoint Nook pack.

My sentiment is from the Tea Together stamp set. 


I finished with a small white twine bow.

I did get a bit carried away when making my flowers and stamped a few more in a couple of other colors. I will be sharing those with you soon.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Just a Note to Lift Your Spirits



Happy Wednesday Peeps!!

Today I have a card to share using the challenge 

 I  love the Fab Friday Challenges, it is one of my faves, but when I saw this
color challenge I wasn't sure I could play along.
I get a bit intimidated when there is that many colors involved.
I thought about it a few days and decided I could use the fun and 
sadly retiring Up, Up and Away dies with matching Lift Me Up stamp set.

I love my little ombre hot air balloon don't you?
I die cut the outline of the balloon with thick whisper white and the 
inside colors are Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride and Petal Pink card stock.

I then stamped and die cut a few clouds with Pool Party ink and card stock.
The base of the card is thick whisper white and then a layer of Coastal Cabana card stock,
I then embossed a piece of white with the Corrugated EF.
The clouds and Hot Air Balloon was arranged and added with glue and dimensionals.


I stamped the sentiment with Black Memento ink and then hand cut the ends at a slant.
I added a Poppy Parade layer under the sentiment piece and added it to the card with dimensionals.
I finished with just a  small white twine bow.

Thanks for stopping by today.

SUO....Let's Celebrate You



Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Time for a new challenge over at SUO Challenges Blog.

The challenge is CELEBRATIONS
Any thing you want to celebrate is great!

I recently picked up the Painted Harvest set and while it is probably more a fall set I decided to use it anyway.
I stamped my flower with Mariana Mist and Night of Navy.
Isn't it pretty in blue?
I stamped the leaf with Old Olive.


The base of my card is Night of Navy card stock.
I then embossed a piece of Whisper White using the Corrugated EF.

The DSP is from the Needlepoint Nook pack.
I die cut my image peice with a die from the Rectangle dies, then ran it back through
cutting off one end to make it square.



I finished my card with a few little basic rhinestones and white twine wrap with a bow.
I pulled apart a piece of the  Flax ribbon to make the twine.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us, we would love to see your Celebration cards.

Be sure to head over to the SUO Challenge Blog 
to see what the rest of the team did with this fun challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
