Today's card share is made with a beautiful Bundle from the annual catalog called Season's Blessings and the Seasonal Basket Dies.

It is a gorgeous set and these flowers are not just for Christmas.

I used fall colors to make my card.


 
I used Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Bumble Bee, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight for the flowers and the leaves are stamped with Pear Pizzazz.
 
The basket is die cut with Early Espresso and I lined it with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.
 
My base is Crumb Cake card stock and then I used a piece of Whisper White that I embossed with the Tasteful Textiles EF I backed that embossed piece with a layer of Cajun Craze card stock.
The basket is added to the card with dimensionals and then the leaves and flowers were added.

Friendships Refresh The Soul


 Happy Tuesday Peeps!

Hope you are staying cool wherever you are, it is Hot, Hot, Hot here with more of the same coming up.

I am staying inside and out of the heat.

Today I am sharing another Nature's Harvest card.

I used a sentiment from Beauty of Friendship stamp set.


 
I just love these flowers and hope you are not tired of them yet, cos I am sure I will be using them again and again! 
This time I used my Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight Blends to color them.
I found the perfect DSP to complement from the  Beauty Of The Earth  Designer Series Paper pack.

Isn't the sentiment so true?

I added a few of the new Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots, that will be in the new mini going live on August 3rd. I love these and they are perfect for fall type projects.

I finished my card with just a small linen thread bow.

Slimline Cherry Set


 Hello and Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!


Today I am sharing a cute little set I made using the Sweet as a Peach Bundle, but I made the peaches in red to be like Cherries.

I love black and white with a pop of red. So pretty right?


My slimline card is made with a base of Basic Black that is 6-1/2" x 6-1/4" and scored on the 6-1/2" side @ 3-1/4" A while back I bought some coin envelopes from Amazon that fit his card perfectly and yes, they can be mailed with just regular postage.


 
The awesome gingham DSP here is from the Host pack called Pattern Party. This is my absolute favorite paper in the pack, but the whole huge pack is awesome!
 
I also made a cute little Birthday Box! The box measure 3-1/2" x 3-12"x 1-1/4". It is a great size for a little treat but would also hold a few 3"x 3" note cards.

 
sorry about the bad picture. YIKES!

Nature's Harvest Sneak Peek


 Happy Friday Peeps!

Popping in here quickly to share his set of cards I made using the new Nature's Harvest stamp set that will be available in the upcoming Holiday mini catalog.


I think this was the first pick for me out of the new catalog. I love Coneflowers and grow many in my perennial flower bed.

My granddaughter is visiting for the weekend so I am going to keep it short as we have lots of things to do, she loves to craft with Mama and we have to make cookies and visit a few flea markets and stores too. She loves to flea market with Mama and Papa!

 

Anyway back to my cards:

I colored the flowers using my blends and the DSP is from the Regals 6x6 pack.


 
I used a die cut in Basic White from the Ornate Layers Dies, I love how his die cut looks on this card, so dainty and pretty.
The sentimnet is from the Quiet Meadow stamp set and is on a die cut from the Harvest Dies.

 
Hope you like this little sneak peek of upcoming new stamp sets.

Creative Challenge


 Happy Hump Day Peeps!!


It is Creative Challenge Time again! 

This is a creative challenge that I do with my friend Wendy from WeeBeeStampin4Fun.

Every so often one of us lays down a challenge and this time it was my turn.  My challenge for this month is Mini Slimlines. I love to create this size of card.

I pulled out my Quite Meadow Bundle for my slimline card.


 
I ended up just using the dies for my card.
I die cut several of the flowers using Basic White card stock and then colored them with my Blends.
I LOVE how these turned out and they are super easy to do.
I used thick Basic White for my base and then used another piece of basic white to emboss with the Tasteful Textiles EF. I ran my paper through the EF twice once from each end as it was just a bit to long for the folder. With this type of EF you don't have o worry about lining up anything as it is a random overall design.


 My sentiment is from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set.
I embossed i with ite embossing powder on Basic Black cardstock.

Now head on over to Wendy's Blog to see her Slimline Challenge card.

Dasiy Garden Birthday


 Happy Monday Peeps!!!


Today's card share is made using the fun Daisy Garden stamp!

This is a one stamp set of this beautiful bunch of daisies. 

I love it, I wanted to try and keep the daises looking white so I started by stamping the image with Gray Granite on Basic White.


 
Let me say, your Stamparatus is so helpful with a large image stamp like this!
I colored with my Blends using Old Olive and Mossy Meadow for the leaves and the centers are done with Daffodil Delight. Super simple but coloring those leaves took some time.
I ran the entire image piece through my Stampin Cut and Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile EF, for some added dimension.
 
My sentiment is from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set an I added a few basic rhinestones for some added sparkle.
I love how this turned out and I am sure I will be using it again very soon.
My pre-order from the upcoming mini arrived late last week and I got to play a bit over the weekend.
So far I am loving all my new goodies.
Watch for some sneak peeks this week!

Thank you cards

 
Happy FriYAY peeps!!
 
My card share today is with a retired bundle.
I love the Perennial Blooms set with their matching dies, it will certainly be staying with me for a long time. You can make the pretties floral cards with this bundle and I have not played with it much so what the heck right?

 
I used a couple of different color ways with these cards but used the same  basic arrangement.
One looks Spring-y and one looks Summer-y, I think.
The sentiment is from the Sharing Sunshine stamp set and is die cut using the Message Dies.
I stamped with Versamark ink on Basic Black card stock then heat embossed with white  embossing powder.


I like them both but I think the one with the Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie flowers is my favorite. How about you, which would you choose?

 Happy Wednesday Peeps!!

Hope you all are having a good week so far, we are busy here as usual!

I also snuck in the Garden Birdhouse stamp set for the "wishes" on the sentiment panel.

I stamped the flowers from the Flowers of Friendship set and colored with my Blends.

You Are Amazing


 Happy Saturday Peeps!


Today I have a quick card share for you!

I made his card some time ago for a color challenge and had not posted it here on the blog.

The colors to use were Daffodil Delight and any 2 neutrals. I chose white and Smoky Slate for my neural palette.

I used the In Bloom stamp set along with the Pierced Bloom Dies.

I used a die from the Quite Curvy Bundle that is now retiring  to create the curve along the edge of the Basic White cardstock piece.


 
I simply adore those Pierced Bloom Dies...so pretty right?

Garden Birdhouse Thanks

 
Happy Tuesday Peeps!!
 
Hope you all had a great weekend. I have been sewing fro three days. I finished two quilt tops, all bu borders. One was from scratch and one I had most of the blocks done and I just  needed to frame my blocks and set together. I had fun. I hadn't' taken time to sew in quite some time. I will post some pics after I get the borders done, waiting on some fabric to arrive for one of them. Then they are off to the longarmer.

Anyway on to my card, the Garden Birdhouse was on my first order after the new catalog went live. I love it so much!

My card base is Pool Party card stock.

 
I stamped the birdhouses with Black stazon and colored with my ink pads and water brushes.
I used Pool Party, Highland Heather, Real Red and Crumb Cake inks.
The birds and door on the red house are colored with Night of Navy.

 
My sentiment is from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set, love the font on the sentiments in that set.
 
I used and bit of DSP from the Subtles 6 x 6 pack.
I embossed the the basic white BG with the Dot Folder from the Checks and Dots EF pack.
