An Art Gallery Happy Birthday


I love the color Flirty Flamingo and it makes me happy to use it. I started with that color as my base and layered a piece of the gorgeous Fine Art Floral DSP on it. I then cut a white rectangle with the large die in Nature's Thoughts dies and ran it through the Painted Texture embossing folder. I then grabbed a blending brush and add some Petal Pink ink over it. I stamped the bloom on white card stock in Flirty Flamingo ink from the Art Gallery set and two stepped it with some Merry Merlot ink. For the stem, I used Old Olive ink. I cut them with the matching Floral Gallery dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the set in Merlot ink and cut with one of the cute scallop dies in the die set. 
I ran some gold Fine Art ribbon around and added a bow to finish it off. I love all the texture on the card!

Hope you have a beautiful day and weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

Thinking Of A Touch of Ink


This is a SAB (Sale-A-Bration) post for sure! I grabbed two items you can earn free with SU! product purchases now thru the end of February 2021. First, I used the Oh So Ombre paper in Bermuda Bay( you can earn this pack of 6" x 6" paper free with a 50.00 purchase) and cut it 3" x 5 1/2" and ran it though the Subtles embossing folder. I layered it on a piece of white card stock and then a Bermuda bay base. I then took the next SAB item A Touch Of Ink stamp set (you can earn this for free with any 100.00 purchase) and stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black along with the hummingbird and the floral image (twice to make a full bunch) on a white stitched circle. I then did a two step with the set it color in the images. I used Bermuda Bay on the bird and Blackberry Bliss on the flowers. I then went back to the bird and sponged a little Granny Apple Green ink on and same on the flowers with Magenta Madness ink.
I then added a scallop Basic Black circle under the white. I finished it off with some iridescent pearls.

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

GDP275 Love You More


This is my Valentine's Day card this year. I just had to work purple into the black and white. I am also playing along with the love theme over at today. I used the Forever & Always bundle along with the True Love DSP. A strip of the DSP was added to the white background then a piece of Basic Black and finally a white base. I cut the love in black for the solid background and the white for the word with the Always dies and added them to a Purple Posy heart punched with the scallop punch in the Heart Punch pack. I stamped the flowers and leaves on white card stock in Memento Tuxedo Black before I colored them with the Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin Blends. I stamped the love you more in same ink on white and cut with the a label die from the Always dies. I finished off with some matte black dots. 

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

CTS404 Amazing Things


My first play with the Hydrangea Hill suite and you know my love of all purple! I think it went well for the sketch today over at   I stamped the two floral images from the large flower with stem in the Hydrangea Haven stamp set but cut off the stem.
I stamped them on white card stock in Memento Black then used my blending brush to blend on some Gorgeous Grape, Purple Posy and Seaside Spray inks. I cut them with the matching die from the Hydrangea dies. I popped them up on a piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock layered on a piece of the beautiful Hydrangea Hill DSP before adding to the Grape base. I also cut some Old Olive leaves as well as stamped some blending Old Olive ink on. I stamped the sentiment in Grape ink on a the white die from the same die set. I like that it is stitched. I finished off with the Pastel Pearls I have been hoarding. 

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

FMS468 Beautiful Friend


I did a little casing from Narelle over at her projects and these colors for the shells. I wanted to use the new Friends Are Like Seashells bundle for the sketch today over at   I started with the Misty Moonlight base and added a print from the Sand & Sea DSP before adding a rectangle of Smoky Slate. I then cut a white rectangle for my shells and stamped some splatter or sand on with Misty Moonlight ink. I stamped all the shells on white card stock in Misty Moonlight ink and colored them with the Stampin Blends in Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate and Pool Party. I cut the small shell with the matching die called Seaside Seashells but the other two I hand snipped. I placed some braided linen trim with the end pulled apart behind the shells and on top, I added the sentiment stamp in Moonlight ink on a Ornate Frame die in white card stock. Love how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Monday!

Beary Comforting Cards


I made this card with December 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit called Beary Comforting.
I added a few things that were not in the kit like a strip of Calypso Coral card stock on the first card.
I added a gold foil heart outline on the second and a solid gold heart on the last. I also stamped the bear with the stamp set and colored him with my Cinnamon Cider and petal pink Stampin Blends markers.
I hand snipped him out to pop on the card heart. I also used a round tag from another kit and some cut heart cut outs. 
Hope you have a sweet day!
Thanks for stopping by!

PP523 Dragonfly Inspiration


Great color combo challenge over at today! I had to pull out my Dandy Garden DSP along with the Dragonfly Garden bundle. The dragonflies were punch off a sheet of the designer paper which made this card super easy! I then added them to a piece of the designer paper with a Bumblebee color print and layered it with a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock. I then ran a piece of white card stock though with the Ornate Floral embossing folder and layered it on a Misty Moonlight base. I placed a strip of Bumblebee card stock on before I added my rectangle with images.
I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink on a label cut with Blackberry Bliss card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The label was cut from the new Messages dies. I finished it off with some Misty Moonlight dots. 

Hope you have a lovey and inspired day!
