PP438 Relax With Paper Piecing!

Happy Easter to You and Yours!
May you have a blessed Easter Sunday!




I keep telling myself I will be there soon!
At the Beach that is!
We head every year to Sanibel Island in June and 
that scene is pretty much me for a week in my beach chair all day!
I decided when I saw this fun challenge I would try 
to piece the umbrella with the DSP. 
I thought some primary colors-blue, red and yellow
were perfect for this scene!
I stamped the chair and umbrella, the hat and the basket 
along with the sentiment from Beach Happy 
in Memento Tuxedo Black. I stamped the sand in Sahara Sand.
I stamped the sun from Waterfront set in Pineapple Punch. 
I stamped the umbrella on the Poppy Parade designer paper 
and hand cut it to place on my already stamped umbrella.
I stamped the stripes from the chair in Blueberry Bushel
and the basket in Pineapple Punch then the hat in Poppy Parade.
These were all two step images which makes it so easy!
To keep it clean and simple but add just a few more
fun polka dots, I layered a piece of Blueberry Bushel DSP
behind before adding on the Blueberry base.

Hope you can play along today

I saw a chance to make this into a Mother's Day card
for my mom when I saw the sketch.

collects tea pots and will love this one!
I stamped the pot and the flower in
Memento Tuxedo Black on thick white card stock.
I colored them with Pool Party, Old Olive and Calypso Coral
 Stampin Blends markers.
I cut a stitched rectangle die in Pool Party and popped my images up.
I added the white detailed dies from Petals & More dies behind.
I also love the Coral paper from Tea Room Specialty DSP
for the background. Pearls finish it off perfectly!

Coral Floral Birthday


I can't remember if I have made a card with this large floral
image colored from All That You Are set.
I decided to color it in Calypso Coral with Mossy Meadow and 
Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends after stamping it 
with Memento Tuxedo Black.  The sentiment from the same
set is also in Black. 
I added it on the  Garden Impressions DSP after adding the 
dotted white tulle ribbon around.
I finished it off by layering it on a white base.
I love tho color and I am getting excited there

Poppy Get Better


My friend,  Brian King at stampwithbrian.com  , designed a Mother's Day 
card last week where he colored this flower in Poppy Parade and I loved it!
I also realized I have not really used this stamp from the Humming Along set
 but have used the words a ton as well as the hummingbird image.
I pulled it out and made this card along with a Mother's Day 
card posting next week. 
 It was fun the color my flower with my Stampin blends in Poppy and 
Light Shaded Spruce with Mango Melody in the center.
I cut it with the matching die and then popped it up on the Poppy 
polka dot background.  I added some white card stock before 
placing on a Poppy base.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set
 and punched it out with the Tailored Tag punch.
I was tempted to add jewels but decided the polka dots were enough!
 Hope you have a beautiful Day and

my pretty Highland sheer ribbon. I placed this on a white base.

Yes, It is Harry The Octopus back for more fun!
I decided to grab this stamp set and matching dies 
along withe coordinating DSP for this color combo challenge.
I layered the Balmy Blue textured paper from Tranquil Textures DSP
on a piece of Calypso Coral and then a white base after I stamped 
some sea plants in Balmy Blue from the Sea of Textures set.
I cut a Daffodil Delight net and then stamped Harry in Coral on white
and cut both with the matching dies called Under The Sea.
I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Promenade stamped in
Coral ink on a white banner.
To finish it off I added some clear epoxy shapes to look like water drops.

Poppy Thinking Of You


Another card with some scraps/pieces leftover.
I had the white piece ran through the Big Shot 
with the Seaside embossing folder sitting on my desk along with
the flower stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock
from the Beautiful Day set.  I colored it months ago 
in Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Call Me Clover
 Stampin Blends markers but then did not use on anything.
I hand snipped it and layered it on a piece of Poppy Parade 
DSP over the embossed white.
I layered all that on a Poppy Parade base.
It took my a while to decide where to place a sentiment.
I then decided to add it about in a white strip and I grabbed the 
sentiment from the same set as the flower
and stamped it in Black.
I finished it off with the green enamel dots on the sentiment strip.

Have a lovey weekend!

FMS383 Flowers Bloom With Navy and Daffodil




I was not sure what I would do with the sketch but 
looked through pieces I had on my desk on a basket of 
things I stamp or cut and then do not use.
I had the white stitched square cut and the words stamped on 
it in Night of Navy from All That You Are set but then decided 
to use a bigger square so it was set aside.
Same with the scrap of Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala paper
and the background layer of Whisper White.
So the card came together quick with some elements done already.
I added the DSP to the white background and used the Night of Navy
gingham ribbon with a tie.  I placed it on a white base.
I stamped the flowers from All That You Are set in Navy ink on 
Daffodil Delight card stock and cut them with the matching dies. 
I then finished it off with some Daffodil Delight flower sequin pieces
to finish the sketch.

Hope you have a beautiful day

and cut it with the matching die. I colored the cup with a dark
Daffodil Delight Stampin Blend marker and the saucer in a light Pool Party.
I added it to a shape die from the same set called Tea Time in Cabana
then popped it on a pearlized doily.

CTS316 Sunny Days




I decided to grab my waterfront stamp set and play for the 
focus of this great sketch by my friend Brian King.
 I used a piece of white card stock cut out with the stitched rectangle dies.
I used colors from the DSP Tranquil Textures.
I stamped Balmy Blue water, Sahara Sand for the sand and trees,
Tranquil Tide for the palms, Pineapple Punch for the sun and 
Fresh Fig for the beach hut and sentiment.
The sentiment is from Beach Happy and works well with this set.
I layered a Fig stitched rect behind and laid these on 
the background DSP and a Balmy Blue base. The Balmy 
piece of DSP is cut 4" by 5 1/4" and then I cut the dot
DSP at an angle and laid on top.
I finished it off with some clear epoxy shapes for something 
subtle and water-like.

Beach Happy


Love this set!  I especially love the extra stamps that 
color in for me! This will hopefully be a hit in my card classes next week!
 I started with the Crumb Cake base and 
layered the piece of Coastal Cabana that is embossed on 
after running some thick Crumb Cake twine around.
Love the Seaside embossing folder!
I used the Beach Happy set to create a scene on 
my white piece by stamping the tree trunk
and the chair/umbrella in Early Espresso. 
I then used the Crumb Cake ink to my the sand under them.
I used the stripe stamp with Poppy Parade ink
for the chair and Coastal Cabana ink to fill in the umbrella. 
The top of the tree was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink.
It looks like a lot but it was fast stamping!
I finished it off with my sentiment stamped in 
Poppy Parade on a white circle and a scallop 
Poppy one behind.

Enjoy Your day and hopefully some sun!

Beautiful Berry Burst


The in color Berry Burst shown here on my card will 
soon retire along with the other 2017-2019 in colors.
I really have enjoyed using this color with many other 
SU! colors and here with white and Blushing Bride.
I did not use a sentiment on this card since I am trying to 
have a variety in my stash.
I can use this for many occasions like birthday, wedding,
thinking of you, get well, etc.
I stamped the detailed flower from Beautiful Promenade set
on the white background in Berry Burst.
I then stamped the splatter from the Beauty Abounds set in
Blushing Bride. I then stamped the other flower on 
Blushing Bride card stock in Berry and cut it with the matching die.
I found an old style white doily in my stash and added it 
along with the a few white leaves and some artisan pearls 
to finish it off.

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