To a Wild Rose Thank You


Hello Peeps!

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

This week is a Fab color challenge:

You know with those colors I would pull out a pretty floral stamp set for my card.
The To A Wild Rose set is so pretty.
I love this beautiful rose in the set.
I stamped a couple with Black Stazon and  water colored 
with Flirty Flamingo and a few leaves was colored with Pear Pizzazz ink.
 

There is a die set that goesd with this set but I just fussy cut them out this time around.
I used the Stitched Nested Label Dies and Whisper White Card stock for the piece my 
flowers are mounted onto.

The base of the card is Soft Seafoam aaand then a layer of white.
I then used another piece of Soft Seafoam that I embossed 
with the Subtle EF.

The stitched piece is mounted to the card with dimensionals.
I then used more dimensionals to add the flowers.
I cut the leaves apart into singles so I could tuck them in closer to the flowers.

The sentiment comes from the Free As A Bird set and is embossed 
onto a piece of Basic Black with white Embossing powder.


I finished up with a white twine wrap and bow, the white twine is pulled from the Flax Ribbon.

 Then a few basic rhinestones was added for a bit of sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by today.

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!

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.

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.

The base of my card is Night of Navy card stock.
