Greatest Tropical Box

I wanted to show off a pizza box I colored and decorated
for the Ink Big Design Team this summer.
These boxes can be themed and go for any season.
I sprayed the one which comes white 
with some drops of Pineapple Punch ink in a spritzer
and rubbing alcohol. I layered some card stock
on top in Granny Apple Green and then a
leafy print from the Tropical Escape DSp.
I then used the square leaf die from the Tropical dies
cut in Shaded Spruce over the DSP. I added some 
linen thread and Pineapple Punch flowers
stamped on white
and cut with the matching dies. 
Finally, I popped on the sentiment from the Tropical Chic set
stamped in Granny Apple Green on white and cut with an oval die.

Hope you enjoy this box and thinking of what season 
you could design it for soon.

Have a wonderful day and thanks fort stopping by!

CTS290 Happy To My Day

I knew as soon as I saw the sketch I would use the 
detail scallop border from the Detailed Leaves dies.
I then picked three fall colors- Mossy Meadow, 
Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.
I layered them on a Crumb Cake background and then some 
Mossy Meadow behind and on a Very Vanilla base.
But a sat and struggled what to add next.
I finally picked a sentiment from Country Home and stamped it on a 
Very Vanilla stitched oval in Cajun and then 
stamped a few leaves from Falling For Leaves set.
I like how it finalllllly turned it!

Hope you can play along over at

FMS355 Hello Country Home

I started this fun sketch with picking my DSP.
I grabbed some cotton print from the Country Lane DSP.
I added it to Whisper White card stock and then a Mint Macaron base.
I also added the copper foil strip down which give it some bling.
I stamped the image and sentiment from Country Home on a thick
Whisper White stitched circle in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I colored the image with my Stampin Blends
 and layered a pearlized doily behind to finish it off.

I really like how this turned out 
which is already on the way to my mom!

GDP156 Winter Woods Thinking Of You


I decided i wanted to use the quilted embossing folder
when this white space as I case Kerstin's card.
I then thought about this new bundle with the 
Winter Woods stamp set and the matching dies 
called In The Woods.
I stamped the tree in Mossy Meadow on white card stock
and cut it with the matching die.
I then inled up with my Cherry cobbler marker
just the phrase thinking of you to stamp 
on the white banner.  
I added a rhinestone I colored with my
 Cherry Cobbler Stampin Blend marker.
I cut the end to make the banner with a banner punch that is retired.
I ran the white background through the 
Big Shot with the Quilt Top embossing folder and 
layered it a piece of Mossy Meadow and then a white base.
Simple thinking of you card.

Hope you can play with the case the designer challenge 
over at this week.

Have a wonderful day!

Fall Card Holders For Class

 Great open boxes from Sam Hammond at
I have made these before and this time they are perfect 
 for the retired fall paper and the retired Chocolate Chip card stock.
They hold all the cards and envelopes for my guest to carry

A rhinestone in the center finishes them off.

FabFri146 All The Best With First Frost

This was a no brainer! 
I thought when I saw the color challenge over at this week 
that I must use the First Frost bundle!
I used a piece of water color paper for the background
water colored with Balmy Blue ink and my aqua painter. 
I layered it on a piece of Highland Heather card stock for the base.
I stamped the large rose in Gorgeous Grape
 and the two small ones in Highland Heather. 
I then stamped the two long stems in Tranquil Tide and all 
were cut with the matching Frosted Bouquet dies.
I also used the dies to cut a white and two Powder Pink filer stems.
The sentiment from the same set is stamped in Heather on a 
stitched white oval with a strip of Tranquil Tide trim behind.
A few pearls on the small roses finishes off the 
sweet bouquet kind of card!

Hope you can play along with the color challenge 
and thanks for stopping by!

Frosted Wishes

I made this same card a few weeks back but added a little to it 
for this 5th class card today.
Here is my first card:  I stamped it in Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow ink.

For the new card (first photo), I stamped in the same Merry Merlot and then 
Tranquil Tide.  I added the extra stems in white- all cut with the 
matching dies called Frosted Bouquet.
The sentiment is the same in Merlot ink and Merlot card stock behind.
I also ran the background through the Big Shot
with the Softly Falling embossing folder.
I also added the Tranquil Tide trim behind the sentiment for a little more color.
This sentiment is great for almost any occasion.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a beautiful day!
