Get Well Soon


Hello Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card made with the challenge this week at

This week it is a sketch:





I have found as we get older there seems to be more times I need a 
"Get Well" type card, 
so I knew I would be using this sentiment which comes
 from the Healing Hugs stamp set.


I stamped the flower image from the All That You Are stamp set
 along with one of the single flowers in the same set onto thick whisper white card stock 
with black stazon ink.

I colored with my aqua painter and ink pads using Highland Heather and Pear Pizzazz.
I then fussy cut them out to add to my card. I did cut away part of the image and cut apart some if it to make it fit they way I wanted.

The DSP on here is from Butterfly Botanical pack.


I finally was able to get a roll of the white flax ribbon,
 that seemed to be always on back order when I was placing a order.
I cut a piece and pulled it apart to use on my card. 
I wrapped it around and tied a bow before adding my main image piece.

I finished up with a few little rhinestones.

Thanks for coming by.

Darling Baby



Happy Hump Day Peeps!!

they have a great sketch challenge this week.



I love a sketch challenge.

I decided to use my Fable Friends stamp set.
I wasn't sure where I was going with this card but knew I waned to use
the  adorable bunny. He/She is my favorite in the set.


I stamped the image with black stazon and colored 
with my aqua painter and ink pads.

I used Balmy Blue and a bit of Flirty Flamingo inks. 
I fussy cut him out and sit it aside to make the rest of the card.


The base of my card is Thick Whisper White and then a layer of Balmy Blue.
I then embossed another piece of white with my Subtle EF.

I used a piece of Gingham DSP from he Gingham Gala paper pad.
I matted it wih Balmy Blue card stock.

I die cut a few elements from the Wonderful Floral framelits.
I die cut some leaves with Balmy Blue and white.
The oval piece is also in the same framelit set.
I added the bunny to the oval with dimensionals and then tucked the other pieces
behind and around the bunny.



I decide to go with the Darling Baby sentiment.

I finished up with a few rhinestones.
Thanks for coming by!

SUO....Birthday Balloons


 Hello Peeps!

It is Tuesday so you know what that means....
a new challenge at  SUO Challenges!

This week's challenge is Coloring!


OK, you all know that is one of my favorite things to do.
I just got this fun Hostess set called Hand Delivered and 
thought the balloons in the set would be great for my challenge card.
I stamped the top balloon part twice and the bottom piece once.
I stamped with black stazon onto some watercolor paper.


I used Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pacific Point for my balloons.
The two front balloons were colored and added with dimensionals over the the bottom balloons.

I fussed with this card for a LONG time.
 I just couldn't find a layout or DSP I like when putting it together.

I finally just decided to go simple with my background and I do like the end results.

The sentiment comes from the same set and I stamped and cut it out by hand.
I added a piece of red card stock cut the same way under the edge.


I finished the card with a few little sequin flowers  
from the Gingham Gala Sequin pack and a few small rhinestones.

Be sure and head over to the SUO Challenge Blog 
we would love for you to play along.

With Sympathy


Hello Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card made with the challenge this week at 





I started out by stamping my daffodils onto some thick
whisper white card stock with black stazon ink. 

I colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. 
I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky inks.


The daffodils are a stamp in the You're Inspiring stamp set.

The sentiment comes from the SAB Lasting Lily stamp set.

I smeared a bit of ink on my piece and ended up having to cut down my front and 
add it to a new base piece. Always happens when I am trying to do a no layer card. 


I finished it up with a few yellow sequins from the Gingham Gala Sequin pack.

Thanks for coming by.

Happy Birthday for Seize the Birthday


Happy Sunday Peeps!!

The toppings being 
" DOTS & STRIPES" 

 I love dots and stripes so I had to play along.
I stared with a base of Gray Granite and then a layer
of Night of Navy.

I then stamped several flowers from the Bloom by Bloom set with 
Night of Navy and Balmy Blue ink.
 I stamped several leaves from the same set with Granny Apple Green ink. 

I fussy cut them out and arranged them on a die cut circle using dimensionals.
I added the circle with flowers to the card with dimensionals as well.

I added little pearls to the flower centers.


I die cut the Happy three times with Night of Navy cardstock and stacked and glued together.
I stamped the Birthday with Night of Navy ink.

Sending Healing Vibes


Happy Friday Peeps!!

My card today features the sketch this week at


A dear friend who was recently diagnosed with cancer has been struggling and she 
has a tough road ahead, so I want to try to lift her spirits with some cards.
If you would like to send one to her too, I know she would love it. Message or email me for her address.

I pulled out my Healing Hugs stamp set for my card.


I stamped two flowers using Calypso Coral ink and fussy cut them out.
I stamped the leaves using Old Olive ink and cut them out as well.

The base of the card is thick whisper white and then a layer of Sahara Sand.
I then used another piece of white and embossed it with the Tufted EF.

 

I added a strip of DSP across the middle and mounted my 
flowers behind and in front of the DSP.

The sentiment is from the same set and was a bit too long to tuck under the edge of my 
flower so I had to lay it across the top.

I added a few rhinestones to finish it up.
I hope this card will brighten her day just a little.

Thanks for coming by.
