FF0062 Sunflowers Gift Bags







You probably guess these are a simple CAS, floral with no sentiment
decorated gift bags for the challenge over at festivefridaychallenge.com 
this week.
I decorated four of them for a friend. 
I used only the Sunflower dies along with some Mint Macaron
ribbon that is retired and retired Wood Texture DSP.
I cut the large sunflower shape in Daffoldil Delight and then the detailed
sunflower die in Bumblebee card stock. In photos, they look about the same.
I cut the solid leaves in Just Jade and the detailed ones in Shaded Spruce.
The centers were in Basic Black and Early Espresso card stocks.
I added them on the retired Wood Textures DSP panels cut 4" by 6".
I grabbed some Mint Macaron ribbon I looped
behind to add a little more color.

Hope you can play along and have a wonderful day!

Well, I did it..I worked all 5 new in colors into my
cute square wreath card for the challenge over at

I love how it turned out! I grabbed the Cinnamon Cider 
designer paper in the wood print for the background.
I layered it with a piece of Just Jade and a Cinnamon base
cut 4 1/4" square. I cut two different greenery wreaths
in Just Jade card stock with the Wreath Builder dies.
I also cut a Magenta Madness bow for the top of my wreath.
I stamped the flowers from the Arrange a Wreath set in 
Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight and Magenta Madness and 
cut them with matching dies. 
I had to add rhinestones for some bling, of course!

PP496 Thanks A Ton




Don't you just love Granny Apple Green?
I used it here to match the fun print of designer paper
 I used with all the fish from Whale Of a Time DSP for 
Joanne's clean and simple thanks challenge this week over at
thepaperplayers.blogspot.com 
I did a little casing from page 95 of the new SU! catalog but 
changed up the color and it is not a shaker card.
I used a Granny Apple Green base and then another piece of the 
same color ran through though the Seabed Embossing folder. 
I punched a circle with my 2 1/2" circle punch so you can 
see the ocean scene underneath. 
I stamped the whale from Whale Done in Blackberry Bliss ink
 and used the matching punch to punch him out. 
I then stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink on Blackberry 
Bliss card stock and heat embossed in white.
I then cut the sentiment up to add. 
A few blue sequin to give some bling to finish it up.

I love the Whale Of A Time suite!
Hope you have a fun day

Just Jade, So Saffron and Seaside Spray Stampin Blends.

Peony Garden


I wanted to use the peony flower die cut which is 5 pieces.
Plus there is several leaf dies, too.
I cut the first 4 pieces with Flirty Flamingo card stock. 
I then cut a Basic Gray middle piece for the flower. 
I cut the leaves in Pear Pizzazz. I added all to the 
Peony Garden DSP and Basic Gray base.
I finished it off with some pearls.
I started to use a sentiment but left blank to use either as a
birthday card or any occasion card.
I did not use a stamp set but love the other elements of the 
Peony Garden suite. I think next time I make another 
flower/leaves, I will use a little ink around the edges to get it 
some more dimensions. I could also emboss the flower parts or
stamp on the card stock to make it look like textured.
Lots of choices and techniques.

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

Relaxing Day


Wow, I have to remember the million colors I used for this scene!
I did stamped the scene from the new Seaside View set in Memento Tuxedo Black
on white and cut it with the Stitched Rectangle dies.
I colored it with the Stampin blends markers. 
I used Just Jade for plants, Pool Party for water, light Night of Navy for boat.
I used Crumb Cake for the sand, Ivory for the deck, Flirty Flamingo
for the chair cushions and rugs, Daffodil Delight for fruit, 
Smoky Slate for vase and bowl, and Cinnamon Cider for the chairs and table.
I guess that was actually nine colors! 
I then popped it up on a piece of Cinnamon Cider card stock ran through 
the Old World Paper embossing folder.
I then layered it on a Cinnamon base.
I usually do not try to fussy cut words/sentiments but gave it a try.
I think it came out ok with black card stock and white emboss powder.

I hope you have a relaxing day and thanks for stopping by!

Taking time for myself today as this should be my view

of card stock and then layered it on the white base.
I then cut a stitched square from shimmer white paper
and water colored the image from the new Seaside View 
set I stamped in Stazon Black ink.

Balmy Blue, and Crumb Cake. 
I then layered a piece of braided linen trim and a strip of 
Balmy Blue with the sentiment stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Happy Monday...lots of new pink for the sketch challenge
 over at freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com
I got some inspiration from my friend Stesha over at stampinhoot.com
with the water coloring. 
I grabbed some water color paper and sprayed it with 
water then used my aqua painter to drop some 
splashes of the new Magenta Madness ink. 
After it dried, I layered on a square of Magenta Madness 
DSP in a wood print. I then cut a white stitched square 
and popped a bright sunflower form Celebrate Sunflowers up. 
I also used water color paper and Memento Tuxedo Black
plus Magenta Madness, Just Jade and Smoky Slate. 
I cut it with the matching Sunflower dies.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Memento 
on Magenta card stock and cut the ends with the 
Lovely Labels pick a punch.

the in color enamel dots in Magenta.

Yes, I love this set-Tasteful Touches!
It is in the new 2020-2021 SU! annual catalog and starts this week.
I have to hand snip those flowers but they are worth it and 
so happy they are easy to do.

background stamp and inked it up in Night of Navy
 to stamp on the white card stock several times in four rows.
I also stamped the sentiment from same set and ink on top. 
I then layered it to the Night of navy piece and the Daffodil Delight base.
I then stamped the two flowers from the set on thick white card stock
in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I colored them with the Stampin Blends in Light Mango Melody,
light and dark Daffodil Delight as well as Ivory in the middle.

Poppy Parade ribbon around. 
I then cut a white label from the new Tasteful Labels dies and stamped 
the poppies from the Painted Poppies set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I colored the flowers with Stampin Blends in Old Olive, Poppy Parade,
and Blackberry Bliss. I stamped the sentiment from Butterfly Gala 
in Black ink on the Poppy Parade banner I cut from those same

I just seemed to be in need of a butterfly, too!
So I cut a Poppy one from the Nature's Thoughts dies.
I added the mini rhinestone for bling on the little guy!
