A Little Note

Happy Thursday Peeps!

There is a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

This one was fun to work with.

I started with a base of thick whisper white and then another layer of 
white that I embossed with the Tufted EF.

I used a couple of flowers from the Tea Together set and
 I colored them with my aqua painter and ink pads.
I used Real Red in for the roses.

I used a small piece of the Wood Grain DSP.
The leaves are cut with Pear Pizzazz and a die from the Wonderful 
Floral Framelits.
I added some twine first that I wrapped in circles and used a glue dot to hold in place.
 The other elements are added to the card with dimensionals.

I finished with a few basic rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thinking of You

Happy Thursday Peeps!!!

Today I have another Floral Romance card to share.
Over at the  SIP Challenge it is Designer's Choice. 

I absolutely love this set with it's matching dies.
The dies are almost better than the stamp set, there are some really nice dies with this set.
A must have in my opinion.
I begun by stamping my image and water coloring.
I die cut it out and I also stamped and colored a few extra flowers.

The base of the card is Thick Whisper White and I cut and embossed anoher piece of whie using the Tufted EF.
I die cut the "trellis" piece with Pear Pizzazz card stock.

The sentiment piece is another die in this set.

I added a twine bow and a few rhinestones to finish it up.

Thank you for coming by!

Happy Birthday

Happy  Tuesday Peeps!!

this week they have a great sketch challenge for us.

I love a good sketch with plenty of layers!

I began by stamping and coloring my main image. I comes from the Wonderful Romance stamp set and it has matching dies. I love that it not only cuts out the image but also some select pieces within the image.
Also in this die set is the die that cuts the piece my floral image is mounted on.

I colored my flowers using Calypso Coral and the leaves are colored using Wild Wasabi ink.

The base of my card is Thick Whisper White and then 
next another piece of white that I embossed with the Subtle EF

The DSP on here are from the Butterfly Gala pack, I mounted both of these onto some Basic Black card stock.

I then used another piece of Basic Black for the horizontal piece. I used the scallop edge die in he Be Mine Framelits along the bottom edge.

I mounted the floral image to the circle piece with dimensionals and added it to the card with more dimensionals.

My sentiment is one I had already stamped in my stash, no sure the set it was from.
I added it to the card with more dimensionals. 
I stamped and colored  the flowers in the image again and cut them out to add over the base flower.

 I finished up with little basic pearls in the center of the flowers and three pretty little sticky sequuins from the Gingham Gala Sequins pack.

Thanks for coming by today!

Thinking of You

Happy Sunday Peeps!!!

My card today was one I made using a couple of challenges.

First up is the Just Add Ink  challenge, Embossing.

My intention was to use the sketch and make a few "rainbow" colored flowers.
As you can see I strayed from that a bit, I even when off the rails as far as the sketch.
So not sure, not rainbow for sure and the sketch is there but.....

The flowers are stamped and colored with my aqua painter. I used Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight along with Wild Wasabi for the leaves.

The flowers are from the Tea Together Set and the sentiment comes from the Wonderful Romance set.
I embossed the Background piece using the Lace Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.
The piece of DSP is from the Classic Garage pack.

I finished up with a few sequins from the Gingham Gala Sequins 
and rhinestones in the yellow flower centers.

Thanks for coming by!

I love sketches that give you wide open spaces to do with as you please.

I stamped the floral image from the Climbing Rose set to use for my top image.

I added a bit of "blue sky" around my Roses with some Balmy Blue ink.

The bottom is a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed with the Basket Weave EF.
I matted this with a piece of Melon Mambo card stock.

My sentiment piece is made up of three die cuts of the "Thanks" glued together.

The die maker is unknown to me, I have had the die for a long time, but it is no longer in it's original packaging so I am not sure where it is from

Happy Birthday

 Happy Thursday Peeps!!!

Sorry for being MIA for a couple of days. 
Life gets busy, I spent some time with the grand babies and also cutting out a new quilt pattern that I have to get made before Mother's Day for a family member.

I have a hard time splitting my time between sewing and stamping. I tend to get caught up with just one and totally ignore the other. I am working on that.

anyway......on to my card
I made this card with a couple of challenges in mind. 

First up is my loose interpretation of this week's Freshly Made Sketches 

 I stamped the image from the stamp set All That You Are on thick whisper white card stock with black stazon and colored with my water brush and inks.

I colored very lightly with Calypso Coral and leaves are Pear Pizzazz.
I then fussy cut it out. I added an extra flower to my stem.

Can you see the bones of the sketch here? I hope so, I can. LOL!

The base of my card is Thick Whisper white and then I Embossed
 a piece of whisper white with the Basket Weave EF.
And a piece of DSP from the Gingham Gala to mat my Embossed piece.

I used one of the dies in he Wonderful Floral Framelit set and die cut with Vellum.
I added these to my card next to the flower and by the sentiment piece.

The sentiment comes from the same set and I stamped with Black Memento ink.
I added the floral image and sentiment to my card with dimensionals.

Thanks for coming by today.
