GDP084 Fiesta Mr. Llama

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
I saw the case the designer card over at and was excited as I had just pinned that 
same card from Michelle Last on Pinterest.
I stated with a base and background similar to the case card.
I used tip Top Taupe for the base as well as to stamp my llama friend.
I ran the white background through with the Festive emboss folder.
I cut both squares from the DSP called Festive Birthday.
I stamped the llama using Soft Suede and the fiesta sentiment 
in Melon Mambo.  I did cut a little piece from the same pattern of DSP
 for the llama's blanket.

I hope you have time to play along with the challenge this week and
thanks for stopping by!

PP341 Colorful Daisy

I have been wanting to do two different colors with the
daisy stamp and punch.  So this layout was perfect to use these again.
I stamped one daisy in Calypso Coral and one in Peekaboo Peach.
I punched out and layered together
.I stamped Coral in the middle and added a new Glitter enamel dot.
I used some of the Delightful Daisy DSP for the background.
I ran some Peekaboo peach ruched ribbon and then layered my sentiment 
also from the Daisy Delight stamp set.

Hope you can go over to
 and play along with the great sketch.  
Thanks for stopping by!

Mother's Day With Succulents

I used my same layout with the set from a few weeks ago for 
my Mother's Day card for class. My class will be using the colorful DSP
where I used the all Mint Macaron colored piece. 
I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black and then the color of 
Sweet Sugarplum and Sahara Sand on them since they are a two step
stamps. I stamped the sentiment from the Oh So Succulent set
in Sweet Sugarplum. Both circles are cut with the Stitched Shapes dies. 
The flowers are cut with the matching dies Succulent framelits. 
I added a white doily behind for some fun!
I finished off my flowers with small pearls.
Sweet Mother's day card!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Monday!

Daisies Of Kindness

These are a few of the cards I design and made 45 
of for a friend who asked me to make them for her 
to hand out to volunteers at our Bible study. 
I used almost all of my Floral Boutique DSP
for the background. I then used my new Daisy Delight 
stamp set coming in the 2017-2018 annual catalog
on June 1st.
It has a matching punch, too.
I stamped two daisies and punched them out for each card. 
Daffodil Delight with Old Olive centers make cute daisies
but I need to try another color combo soon.
I used a retired sentiment from Thoughtful Branches
for the sentiment. I stamped Thank You from the same set 
inside the card. 

Hope you have a blessed Sunday!

You're Just Lovely

I wanted to play with my new stamp set called Oh So Eclectic
I won at Onstage a few weeks ago. 
I thought I would wait for the matching dies to play but
I thought I can stamp the flowers and make a cool background.
I am really liking the new 2017-2019 in color called Berry Burst 
but then when I paired it today with the new 2017-2019 in color 
called Lemon Lime Twist and I fell in love!
I then matted this background piece with a bit of 
Basic Black with the Berry and Lemon card stocks.
Such an adorable card!

Hope you will enjoy the new 2017-2019 in colors that start June 1st.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

FMS284 Thinking Of You Seaside

I do not know why but I thought of my fish friends 
when I saw this sketch this week.
I grabbed my By The Shore DSP and layered it 
on Dapper Denim card stock.
I stamped the fishes and use circle punches.
I stamped the sentiment
from the Window Shopping stamp set.
Then for some bling....I mean bubbles..I used some gold sequins!

Go play along with this great sketch

FabFri110 Wishing You

I thought of flowers when I saw this color challenge
so I went that route with my card today!
I had some of this DSP called Floral Boutique cut already.
I also has the white stitched square cut from another project I 
started but then did not use it on that project.
So I layered flowers and leaves and stamped a 
sentiment from the same set
called Special Reason.
