Smile For Eastern Beauty

I had some of the Dapper Denim "flower" dies
left over from another project and decided to use it to 
make a card with the Eastern Beauty set and matching DSP.
I stamped the sentiment from the set in Fresh Fig and then cut 
it out with a circle die layering with another in Fresh Fig.
I added them to the Denim flower die and cut some 
paper from the Eastern Palace DSP for the background 
and ran some Fresh Fig 1/2" finely woven ribbon across
 before layering on a Dapper Denim base.
To finish was the added a few pearls under the sentiment 
and it was a quick card in my stash!

Hope you have a delightful day and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Bouquet

I have seen most of the bouquets made with this set straight up and down
so I decided to make this bouquet laying some what.
I started with the stems cut with Tranquil Tide card stock. I cut a tie
for the bunch from Soft Suede. I then stamped two of all flowers
 and middles on white card stock.  I even cut two sprigs from white with out stamping.
I used the matching die cuts called Bouquet Bunch framelits dies.
I stamped the birthday sentiment three times for fun
 and fill the space on my white card stock. 
 I layered it on the embossed Berry Burst card stock
and then finished it layering on a piece of thick Whisper White. 

Hope you have a blessed Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful Bouquet Square

I wanted so much to make amazing bouquets 
with this Beautiful Bouquet set but a little overwhelmed with it.
I decided to start out small but stamping
a little on the card stock and then 
layering some die cut flowers over with a bold sentiment.
I stamped three Calypso Coral flowers and added some Pear Pizzazz
leaves.  I then stamped two Pool party flowers and two middle in 
Daffodil Delight and cut them with the Bouquet Bunch framelts dies.
I stamped one other flower in Daffodil Delight and cut it out.
The sentiment was from Colorful Seasons stamped in Early Espresso ink.
I cut the white card stock at 3 1/2" square and layered it on
Calypso Coral 4" square base.

I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

PP353 Love You Flamingos

I have been wanting to make a card with two flamingos because 
I think more flamingos are better!  What is more fun in the water than two flamingos!?!
Well, probably several things but I love the water stamp in this set!

I started with my two flamingos stamped in Blushing Bride and then Calypso Coral.
I added water in both Pool Party and Tranquil Tide.
Some grass in the lovely Lemon Lime Twist.
A very quick scene to "paint"!  I used the sentiment I thought 
went well with these two flamingos stamped in Tranquil Tide. 
 I know of a few others from other sets I will try another time.
It need something in the corner so I used a little Coral banner and thick white twine
bow to finish it off.

Play along with this fun theme challenge over at

I hope you have a lovely Monday and thanks for stopping by!

Extra Ordinary Shells

I was going for fast, simple... and did I say fast?
I stamped the shells across in not a perfect order 
with Sahara Sand ink from the So Many Shells stamp set.
 I then used a wonderful sentiment from that set
stamped in Island Indigo.
I layered the white and Indigo card stock a little off and wrapped some 
linen thread around.
I placed them on a Sahara Sand base for that fast and simple card.

I hope you have a fab Friday and thanks for stopping by!

TTTC006 Beautiful Thing

A quick 4 1/4" square card for you today with the tic-tac-toe-challenge!
I did a little casing from my friend and fellow Pretty Pal, Linda Callahan
over at
I am working the right column down with Square (card and stitched
square in middle), Wrap (ribbon wrapped around and tied) and Wood-grain
(the chair is cut from the Wood Textures DSP).
I started with a piece of white glossy paper
cut with the largest stitched square die.
I rubbed Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral
inks over it with a sponge.  I sprayed it with
water and let dry to give a wash/wet look.
When dry I stamped the sentiment from Colorful Seasons on
in Early Espresso ink.
I cut the chair from Woof Textures DSP with a die from the
Seasonal Layers dies and cut a few flowers I stamped with same set and
matching dies.
 I wrapped my copper ribbon around the Sahara Sand base and tied it and added my layers.

I hope you can play along at this week.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

FMS296 For You Textured Shell

I designed a 4' square based on the sketch.  I started with a 
3'square piece of Very Vanilla and stamped the sentiment from the 
So Many Shells set in Early Espresso in the corner. 
I then added some texture with Timeless Texture stamps in 
Powder Pink and Sahara Sand.
I stamped the shell in a Powder Pink and then a Sahara Sand
layer and snipped it out.  I popped it up on the card and layered 
with a Piece Early Espresso square.  I added some burlap ribbon
behind on the bottom.  It still needed something at the top
so I added two gold sequins from the metallic sequins collection.
I hope you can play along with the fun sketch at
