FAB Well Wishes


Happy Saturday Peeps!!!

My card today uses the sketch over at Fab Friday.






I love the flowers in the Tea Together stamp set with it's matching framelits.

I stamped a few flowers on some scrap thick whisper white card stock and got busy coloring.

I used my water brush and Real Red and Pear Pizzazz ink.

I cut them out and then went about making the rest of the card.


I love all the DSP in the Wood Grains pack 
and they give my card, paired with the roses, a rustic chic feel that I was going for.

The sentiment is from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.

The base of the card is Crumb Cake and the next layer is Early Espresso.


I finished with a few basic rhinestones.

Thanks for coming by!

Bloom by Bloom Birthday


Happy Friday Peeps!!!

Over at CAS(E) this sketch they have a very interesting sketch this week. 

Take a look





My card is my take on this sketch.

I stared by creating the pointed pieces using some paper from the Gingham Gala pack.

I added them to a piece of whisper white card stock and matted with some Balmy Blue card stock.

 I added this to my Thick Whisper White base.


I stamped my flowers with using the Bloom By Bloom set. I stamped the flower portion using Flirty Flamingo and on the leaves and stems I used Granny Apple Green.
I fussy cut the images out and added to my card with dimesionals.

The sentiment is from the All That You Are set. I stamped with black memento ink and die cut with a stitched circle die.

  I used my Wink of Stella brush to add some glimmer to the flower and leaves. 
Very pretty IRL, bu doesn't show in the pic.

I added a few sticky sequins to finish it up.

Thanks for stopping by today.

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 

AND
 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.

Happy Monday Peeps!!!

Over at the The Paper Players they have a pretty color challenge this week.

I love gray and pink together, it is so striking.

I started with a base of Basic Gray card stock and followed with Smokey Slate.
I found this pretty marbled piece of DSP from the Classic Garage pack that worked perfectly.


My flowers come from the All That You Are stamp set.
I stamped with black stazon ink and waercolored using Melon Mambo Ink.
I fussy cut out the three flowers to use on my card.

I laid down a piece of Vellum across the card and then added  a circle die cut from the Wonderful Floral Framelits.
I die cut several leaves from these same framelits using smokey slate 
card stock  and a few little ones using white to use in my floral arrangement.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the flowers.

You've Been on My Mind


Happy Sunday Peeps!!!

A fun new/old sketch at CAS(E) this sketch was the start for my card today.



I recently took the plunge and got a few Stampin Up Blends and I was anxious to give them a try.
I bought the Tea Together set and earned the matching dies just because I love the flowers.
They were my starting point for my card.

I stamped a couple of the flower a images a few times on some scrap
 thick whisper white with Black Memento ink 
and colored them with a combo of my Blends and Copic Markers.
 I definitely need more Blends! 
I die cut them out and went about making the rest of the card.

I used the stitched rectangle dies for all my rectangles on my card.
Love them!!


I used Highland Heather card stock and a piece of Gingham Gala DSP.

The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set 
and finished with a few sequins from the adhesive back sequin pack in the Gingham Gala line.

Thanks for coming by today!

From The Heart


Happy Saturday Peeps!!

The challenge this week at Stamps, Ink, Paper Challenge Blog
is CAS Valentines.

 AND

When I first saw the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches 
I thought I will just pass this week..lol!

But I kept thinking about it and thought I'll give it a go
with some hearts to coordinate with the SIP challenge
I first started just stamping some hearts from the Meant to Be
set directly onto whisper white card stock.
 I was not really liking it and twice I smeared some ink....Grrrr!!

Then it hit me, die cut them silly!! 
So glad I did, cos I am really liking the look of these hearts. 
They remind me of the Conversation Candy Hearts.
I stamped the image several times using a variety of colors, I used Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral, Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather.
 I then die cut them out with one of the dies from the Be Mine Framelits. I love this heart with the ruffles and stitching. 

I laid them out moving and arranging until I was happy 
with them and then attached to my whisper white piece with dimensionals.


My sentiment comes from the Petal Palette set.
I stamped with Black Memento ink.
I mated this piece with Flirty Flamingo cardstock and 
glued it directly to my thick whisper white base.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Valentine's Day




Happy Saturday Peeps!! 

Over at Just Us Girls Challenge Blog it is word week and the word is Love.


I made another Valentine card, I used my other Valentine Card seen here 
as the inspiration for this card.

I started with a white card base of thick whisper white.
I then used a layer of Lovely Lipstick card stock and then another piece of white that I embossed with the corrugated EF.


I die cut several pieces using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits. I used Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick card stock and the DSP is from the All My Love pack.

I laid down by DSP at an angle and added the scallop border pieces to the edges.
I glued this directly to the corrugated embossed piece. 

I then added the hearts that are going across the top of the DSP strip.

I then began layer up my die cuts with dimesionals until I achieved an arrangement I liked. 
I stamped the sentiment using Lovely Lipstick and die cut with a stitched circle die.


I added a few little rhinestones to finish it up.

Thanks for stopping by today.
