Thank You Happiness Blooms

Such a cheery card thanks to the lovely designer paper
called Happiness Blooms. 
I layered a piece of it on the base with stripes and then
another piece over the Night Of Navy card stock.
I added several tiny rhinestones for some bling!
I wrapped a piece of the Navy gingham ribbon 
around before adding the sentiment from 
Southern Serenade on the white die with a Calypso
Coral circle behind. 
I let the designer paper do the work with two fun patterns!

Hope your day is a happy one!
Thanks for stopping by!

PP433 Better With You

As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew I wanted to 
try stamping the butterflies in Memento Tuxedo Black and 
then sponging color on them. This was the perfect 
one layer project.
I stamped my sentiment from the Butterfly Gala set
and then the butterflies being careful to ink only the large ones.
I then took a sponge dauber and dabbed Mango Melody ink and some then 
Calypso Coral on others. 
I finished with a few black rhinestones for a bling. 
Hope you can head over and play along this week at

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Sunday!

Hello Beautiful

I saw this water color butterfly in a demo magazine 
I get called Stampin' Success. I stamped the 
butterfly from Butterfly Gala set on water color paper 
with Bermuda Bay ink. I then lightly sprayed it once with water. 
I then took my aqua painter and added a little Daffodil Delight 
and Coastal Cabana ink to the big butterfly.
I punched them out with matching punch.
I then stamped the sentiment from the same set in Bermuda
on the white stitched die and added it all to the 
three strips of Daffodil Gingham Gala DSP on 
the white base.

Another submission for the spring challenge over at
Hope you have a spring-y day and thanks
for stopping by!

For You With Floral Vellum

I would never thought of this beautiful floral vellum
being framed if not for my wonderful friend
Brian King who is not only a genius at layouts but layers as well.
He posted this week on his blog  
ways to attach vellum and he had this frame up. 
 ( you can see his post by clicking my link)
I just had to make a card with it.
 I added the vellum to the back of mu Mossy Meadow frame
I cut with two stitched rectangle dies.
I used for the second rect one that was two sizes down from the first.
I finally cut into this beautiful Floral Romance specialty vellum paper.
I layered the framed vellum on a Petal Pink card base.
I then stamped the sentiment from Very Vintage in
Fresh Fig ink on a white circle die then cut a 
Fig circle along with a Petal Pink stitched circle from 
the Stitched Labels dies.
Simple and fast but what a beautiful floral background.

Hope you have wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

GDP180 Birthday Wishes Cased

Casing my friend Stesha is hard to do-why?
Well, she is so talented that she is an Artisan Design Team member 
plus she is the queen of fussing cutting!  So I knew when casing her card
above, I had to do some level of fussing cutting!
I cased it in color and layout and set. 
 I used a piece of the recently retired Festive Farmhouse DSP 
for the wood background which I layered on a Berry Burst base.
I then stamped all the pieces from the Varied Vases set on
water color paper and cut some by hand-the fussing cutting part and the 
vases were punched with the matching Vases Builder punch.
I still need more birthday cards so stuck with the same sentiment.
All were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black before water coloring with 
my aqua painter.

Hope you can play along over at

Happy fussing cutting!

FF0029 Spring Birthday

#FestiveFridayChallenge, #FF0029, Spring handmade cards, Green handstamped cards, Stampin Up

Quick card today-all I had to do was cut the 
butterfly die  in white card stock and layered it on a piece
of Floral Romance DSP and add that to the white base.
I stamped the sentiment from Very Vintage in 
VersaMark on heat embossed with white embossing powder then
cut it with the label die in Lakeside dies and add pearls.
Love the background here!
I think the soft green and the pretty bunch of 
butterflies screams spring!

Hope you can play along over at

Happy Spring!

FabFri158 Promenade Birthday

You will notice I have mostly birthday cards this week 
as I need to increase my stash of these cards.
I started by stamping the lovely flower from 
Beautiful Promenade set in Calypso Coral ink on 
the Petal Pink card stock and cut them 
with the matching dies.  With these same
Beautiful Layers dies, I cut the leaves in Mossy Meadow.
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of Very Vanilla
in Mossy from the Very Vintage set.  I layered all of these 
on the Calypso Coral Lace embossed background and 
then added it on the Vanilla base.
A few pearls and some Wink of Stella on the flowers finished it off.

Hope you can play along over at
this week!
Thanks for stopping by!
