Fabuluous Foil For You!


I created this card for a design team over at inkbigacademystamps.com.
I used my fav Elegant Eggplant as a base and layers some Fabuluous Foil Acetate 
with the beautiful scallops over it. 
 Then all I did was cut a shape from gold foil paper 
and add a quick sentiment over the die.
Under the die is a circle of Elegant Eggplant. 
Hope this inspires you to use the fancy foil on 
your next project!  Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!

FMS251 Thoughts & Prayers



Great sketch for this week over at freshlymadesketches.com
I started with the brick wall stamp from Ghoulish Grunge as the background.  
I stamped over layering some to make look a little vintage. I stamped the 
sentiment from the Rose Wonder set and was about to add to another circle when 
my eye caught a left over leaf laying on my desk...say that fast!!!
It gave it a kind of fall look with some interest.
I hope you can play along this week, too. 
Thanks for stopping by!

PPA315 Blessed Leaves!



I have been wanting to use these wonderful leaves on the background of a card
for a while and when I saw these colors together, it seemed the perfect combo!
I used the leaves from the Thoughtful Branches set.
  I told you there was so much you could do with this set!
It is available now through next Wednesday the 31 st of August!
The sentiment here is from the loved Paisleys & Posies stamp set
 in the new holiday catalog that starts on September 1st, 2016.  
You will fall in love with that bundle of stamps and matching dies!
I like using the Layering Ovals which fit well with this sentiment!
Added some Old Olive twine and it was done!
Please head over today to palspaperarts.com to play
along with this great color challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!

GDP050 Thankful Paisley Petals




Love the chance to show off DSP esp this great
paisley/floral design.  It was hard to cut the houndstooth print I must admit!
I love it so much and was so happy there are two colors of it in this pack. 
I like the mix of the prints on the Rich Razzleberry card stock.
I then stamped part of the sentiment on a small banner piece.  
I added a little flower like piece with leaves using the matching dies to finish it off!
Very sweet card and I hope you can play with this great sketch challenge 
over at global-design-project.com

Thank You Fall Light


Love the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and matching dies!
This is the last week to buy them. 
 They could return in a future publication but we are not guaranteed!
The set/dies are available through August 31st. They are so versatile- one can stamp
flowers, leaves, trees, Christmas, Spring, Fall, Winter scenes!  I can go on and on!  
Here I choose to do a Fall scene.  Fall is my fav season!  
You have no idea how fast this card was to make!
I cut out a circle with a die.  Layered over the Very Vanilla card stock.
Sponged with sponge daubers inside the mask I created. 
First, Cajun Craze, then a little Crushed Curry,
and last Always Artichoke. I removed the mask and stamp in black 
the trees. Added the Thank you sentiment from
 the same set and placed on top of a piece of Always Artichoke card stock
ran through the Big Shot with the Seaside emboss folder.
The folder makes me think of waves and tree bark, too!
So quick and easy and I love it each time I look a little more!
Check back because I will have more of this set this week!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a blessed Tuesday!

Merry Monday Starlight!

Copy our badge for your blog.


I decided to play in Lori's Link Up for the summer going on 
now until August 31st. 
We could use any previous challenge and I picked 
use Blue, Gold and White on a Christmas card. 
When I saw this challenge, I could only think of the new 
Star Of Light set I have been wanting to ink up!  Love the matching dies, too!
I used gold foil to cut a star and layered with white 
over it with another detailed die cut star. 
Hope you have a Merry Monday and thanks for stopping by!

Serene Hope


I designed this card for inkbigacademystamps.com design team also. 
No stamping, wow!
I used the Serene Scenery DSP paper stack for the beautiful background.
I cut the hope sentiment from the Sunshine Wishes thinlits dies.
 I used my banner dies for layering
 and love the touch of gold foil playing off the sunshine in the print.
I hope you have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping by!
