Congratulations


Hello Peeps!!

Today I am sharing another card made using the new Floral Essence stamp set. 

I used the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.





I love this Floral Essence stamp set and when I saw this sketch,
I knew the flowers would be perfect for it. 

I stamped my flowers with Rich Razzelberry ink and the centers with Daffodil
Delight ink.
I stamped the leaves, that come from the Everything is Rosy set, with Pear Pizzazz ink.


I die cut a stitched circle with Whisper White card stock to mount my flowers onto. 
The base of my card is Rich Razzleberry card stock.
I then embossed a piece of thick whisper white with the Corrugated EF for the next layer.
I added the die cut circle to the card with a few dimensionals.
The flowers are also added with dimensionals.
I tucked the leaves in and around the flowers.

The sentiment is from the Everything is Rosy stamp set and I stamped it with Rich Razzleberry 
ink onto a srip of whisper white.
I hand cut the ends and added it over the flowers.
I then tucked another set of leaves under the sentiment panel.


I finished up by adding a white twine bow and a few little rhinestones. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

The World Needs More of You



Hello Peeps!

Today I have a fun card to share that also uses a new stamp set.
This is the Floral Essence Set.
I love this flower and how it looks stamped. The solid image is so pretty!
A little tip I learned when using these solid images, 
If your ink pad is too "juicy" use your bone folder
 (or even a Popsicle stick would work), 
rub it back and forth across the pad to push some of the ink down into the pad.
You can tell it is working as the area you rub across will get lighter in color.
Don't rub too aggressively, just a light touch will do the trick.

Once you do this the image will stamp perfectly.
 I used Lovely Lipstick for my flowers and Daffodil Delight for the centers. 
The leaves are Granny Apple Green and come form the 
Everything is Rosy stamp set.


I used the Nested Stitched Label Dies again,
so love those!

I stamped the sentiment from the Free as a Bird set onto
my stitched label piece with Black Memento ink.
The base of the card is Lovely Lipstick and then a layer of 
white I embossed with the Basket Weave EF.

I added the stitched die piece to the embossed layer with dimensionals.
I then added my white twine up the side and tied a bow.

I then added my flowers around the stitched die piece moving and
arranging til I achieved an arrangement I liked.
I then tucked in the leaves around the flowers.


I finished with a few basic rhinestones.

Your Friendship....



Hello Peeps!

Today I have another sneak peak card to share.
This one uses the Free as a Bird Bundle.
I am loving these stitched label dies that comes with this bundle.
I die cut one of the label dies and gave it a light wash with Balmy Blue ink.


I stamped the bird, leaves and flowers with black stazon onto some thick
whisper white card stock.

I colored using Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive and Balmy Blue ink. The 
bird is colored with Crumb Cake and Flirty Flamingo, the beak is
colored with Pumpkin Pie.
I fussy cut out all my elements and added them to the stitched label piece
with dimensionals and Tombow glue.

I am adding this card to the challenge this week at


I finished my card up with some basic rhinestones and 
some white twine pulled from the Flax Ribbon.

My sentiment is from the same stamp set and is 
stamped with Black Memento ink.

Thanks for coming by.

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.
