Thinking Of Wonderful Romance

I did a little casing of Amy K over at 
for my third card for card classes next week.
This could be a birthday, wedding, Valentine's, sympathy,
etc. card with these soft hues.  I like having a card like this in 
class where my guest can stamp a variety of sentiments
to fit what they need.

I started with the Petal Pink base and layered a piece of
Whisper White ran through the Big Shot with a new embossing 
folder called Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions 
embossing folder.  I love the details in the design.
I then stamped the large floral image on white in Memento Tuxedo Black 
and colored it with the Stampin Blends markers 
in Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam and light Soft Suede.
 I then cut it  with the matching die and popped it up.
I stamped the sentiment in same ink and cut it with the oval 
stitched die in the Wonderful Floral framelits dies.
Last touch with the make a cut bow with the pretty
Petal Pink and White variegated ribbon and then a few tiny pearls
on the flowers.

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

Hello Beautiful Butterfly!

This is my second card for card classes next week.
Love the Butterfly Gala bundle- a great 
stamp set and a matching punch that cuts both 
of these butterflies out at once!
I stamped the butterflies on a piece of white in 
Memento Tuxedo Black and 
colored them with my Stampin Blends in
Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight colors.
I used the Butterfly Duet punch and then layered the 
large one on a white stitched circle from Stitched Labels dies.
I added a Heather circle behind.
I have a Heather base and then a layer of Daffodil 
then a piece of white card stock cut with the 
Stitched Rectangles framelits dies.
I layered a piece of the free Botanical Butterfly DSP
at the bottom and stamped the sentiment in 
Highland Heather. I finished it off with a strip of the free
sheer ribbon in Heather across.
Loving the purple and yellow together.
Free items like the ribbon and DSP are

PP424 Good Things

More butterflies---always a good thing!
I do not know why the Pool Party ink looks so 
light for the looks normal in real life!
I stamped the butterflies from Butterfly Gala
in Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock.
I also stamped the sentiment from the same set 
in Black then I used the three colors to add color 
to my butterflies. I inked up the "bubbles" from the 
Beauty Abounds set and stamped over the images.
I layered the White on a piece of Basic Black (my other color)
and then added some Gingham Gala DSP in Grapefruit Grove
behind before adding on the white base.
I finished it off with some sequins.

Very fresh and clean/simple today!
Thanks for stopping by!

FabFri154 Waterfront Thanks

Love the Waterfront stamp set...perfect for most colors!
I grabbed it and thought I could make a scene with this color combo!
I like how it turned out.
I started with the Highland Heather for the mountains
 and the thanks at the top. 
I used Tranquil Tide for the dark trees and then Pear Pizzazz
for the others. I stamped both Mint Macaron and Lemon for the water
and then more Lemon for the texture. I then thought the thanks was too light 
and stamped over it with Tranquil Tide and it now looks blurry but cool.
I layered the Very Vanilla square on a Mint Macaron square and then 
added it some Lemon Lime Twist sheer ribbon I got free with 
the SAB promo going on now through March 31st with Stampin' Up!
When you spend 50.00 or more you can receive this or several 
other items you can choose from for free.
The back ground paper is from Tranquil Textures DSP
layered on a 4" square of Tranquil Tide card stock for the base.

Hope you can play along over at
