Parisian Happy Birthday

This is my fourth card for classes this week. 
I made a very similar card a few weeks back you can see here.
On this one, I placed all on a Petal Pink base.
I added some Basic Black card stock before layering my white background
embossed with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder.
I cut the black oval from the Layering Oval dies and 
stamped the script from Parisian Beauty set in Whisper White craft ink.
The tower from same set was stamp on white with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut 
with the matching Parisian dies. I stamped the flower from the 
Forever Blossoms set in Memento on white card stock and 
cut it along with the Petal Pink flowers behind with the Cherry Blossoms dies.
I colored it with the Petal Pink Stampin Blend marker.
I stamped the sentiment on a Petal Pink banner in Memento ink
from the Timeless Tulips set.
A pearl in the middle of my flower finished it off.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Thinking Of You Lovely Lily

This is my third card for classes next week.
I wanted to stamp the lilies on colored card stock so 
my guest did not have loads of coloring to do. 
This layout was inspired by my friend Tricia Chuba 
at and you can see her card here
I started with my Granny Apple Green base and added a strip 
of the lovely and free Lily Impressions DSP and Melon Mambo card stock.
I then stamped the blooms from the free set called Lovely Lily Pad (also free
with the SAB promo going on now though March 31st)
on Melon Mambo paper in Lovely Lipstick ink.
I stamped the lily pad in Granny on Granny card stock.
I cut them with free SAB Lily Pad dies. 
I could not decide on the shape for the center but ended up 
doing the stitched square in Whisper White for something different.
I tend to usually go for a circle or oval shape. 
I stamped the sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia set in
Gorgeous Grape ink. 
Hope you have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Celebrate Honey Bee

This is my second card for classes next week and I hope 
they love the Honey bee suite as much as I do. 
I used the Honey Bee set here to stamp the hive in Crushed Curry,
the bees in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with a Crushed Curry marker.
I cut them with the matching Detailed Bee dies.
I stamped the sentiment in black and cut it out withe the 
Ornate Frames die.
I used two different prints from the Golden Honey DSP
and added the strip of Curry across then layered it on the white base.
The Golden Honey DSP is free when you purchase 50.00 of product
from Stampin' Up! now through March 31st during the SAB promotion.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks

Happy Valentine's Day 2020

This is the first card for my card class this month and of course, 
the Valentine's Day card for class.
I did some casing of the card on page 8 of the new 2020 mini catalog
featuring this bundle. 
I started with the Flirty Flamingo base.
I cut a white piece of card stock
 and added two pieces of From The Heart DSP cut 2" by 5 1/4".
I ran the Real Red 3/8" satin ribbon around. 
Then I came all the hearts!
I punched out the shiny scallop heart from the DSP with the scallop
heart punch and stamped the sentiment from Heartfelt set on white in 
 Real Red ink punching it with the non-scallop punch heart 
before adding to the punched heart.
I stamped the other detailed scallop heart also in Real Red and punched 
with the same scallop punch.
I stamped the small lacy hearts in Real Red and Flirty Flamingo
and then used a heart die from the Stitched Be Mine dies.
I finished with some Real red rhinestones!

Hope you enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

PP474 Kindness In Style Treat Bag

I did keep this clean and simple for the Fashion Fun
challenge over at 
I grabbed a copper dotted treat bag and added the tag with the gold clip.
The tag is using the lovely Best Dressed DSP layered on 
a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock.
I added the rectangle in Purple Posy and ran it though
with the Stone embossing folder. I then stamped the sentiment 
from Dressed To Impress in Rich Razzleberry
 and cut it with the Stitched So Sweetly die.
I finished it off with a pearl. 
I stuffed this with a pack of Star Bursts for a sweet young friend.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

FabFri181 & GDP224 Greatest Guy

I saw these two sketches as similar so playing along in both the and
this week with my Greatest Guy card.
I really love the color combo of gray and coral.
So I used a Calypso Coral base and added the print of
Country Club DSP. I cut the Stitched Nested label in
Smoky Slate and ran it through the new Absolutely Argyle embossing folder.
I then cut the 5 gold club in Basic Gray with the Golf Club dies.
I also cut the white gold balls with the same dies.
I stamped the sentiment from Clubhouse in Basic Gray ink on white card stock
and cut with the shield die and then stamped it again in
the Calypso Coral and cut with the banner die.
I love all the texture here!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

CTS171 Hello Honey Bee

Sweet sketch this week over at 
and I decided to use my Honey Bee bundle and free Golden Honey DSP. 
I added one print to the white base and then cut another print with
the new Stitched So Sweetly dies. 
I stamped some gold ink on the background before I laid down the printed die.
I stamped the bee and flower in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut them
with the matching die. I colored them both with an old gold marker.
I stamped the sentiment and cut it from the same stitched dies.
I finished it off with a gold pearl to the bottom.

Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks
