Thank You Sweet Bird

I needed a quick thank you so pulled out my 
Free As A Bird set plus the matching paper.
I stamped the bird in Early Espresso ink on white card stock and 
and snipped him out. I colored him with the Stampin Blends
markers in Pool Party, So Saffron, and a little Calypso Coral.
I stamped the flower in the same ink and colored with Calypso Coral.
I cut it out and popped it up.
I stamped the leaves in Old Olive on the white label cut from
the Beautiful Boughs dies from the holiday catty and colored it with the 
light Old Olive Blend marker. I added the sentiment in 
Early Espresso ink and finished it with some pearls.
I popped it on the background I made with two prints from the 
Bird Ballad DSP and a strip of Pool Party card stock which I added the 
the Petal Pink base. 
Sweet card!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a lovely day!

FabFri178 Rest & Relax In The Tropics

I thought of these trees when I saw the two greens in 
the color challenge this week over at 
I stamped the trees from Timeless Tropical set on the white card stock
 both in Mossy Meadow with Soft suede trunks 
and then in Pear Pizzazz ink with the Suede trunk.
I cut them out with the matching dies called In The Tropics.
I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot on white card stock and 
cut it with the Ornate Frame die.
I ran the Seaside Spray piece of card stock with a new fav 
emboss folder called Coastal Weave emboss folder and then layered 
that on a Whisper White piece then on the Merry Merlot base.
I added some burlap behind my sentiment and then finished it 
off with the cutest trinket from the Tropical Oasis trinkets.
Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Let It Snow Diaper Fold Treat Holder

I made 14 of these last week to give to my Bible study group this week.
I took a 6 x 6 piece of the wonderful Let It Snow DSP and 
did the fold then added the snowman image stamped in 
Memento Tuxedo Black ink from Snowman Seasons punch out
 of Whisper White card stock with the 1 3/4" circle punch.
I did a little coloring with my Stampin Blends markers in 
Pool Party, Real Red and Calypso Coral.
 I added some Real Red behind with the Everyday Punch.
Of course, I added some yummy chocolate piece to the pouch.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

Brightly Gleaming Bag Tag

I made this tag for a gift for my Bible Study leader.
I used the Brightly Gleaming suite plus the Stitched Nested Label dies.
I cut the Pretty Peacock with the label die for a base.
I added the next layer of the Brightly Gleaming DSP.
I punched the ornate from a Hammered Metal copper foil sheet.
I punched the smaller ornate from the designer paper.
I stamped the Merry Christmas in Pretty Peacock on Very Vanilla
from the Christmas Gleaming set as well as the holly 
I stamped in Early Espresso ink and hand snipped out.
I colored it with Stampin Blends markers in Pretty Peacock and  
Rococo Rose. I tied on the Merry Christmas woven ribbon.
I added a quick bow of copper trim to finish it off.

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

PP471 Beautiful Season

I have not used nearly enough snowflakes this year!
I decided to grab the snowflakes from Seasonal Layers dies
in gold foil for this color challenge by LeAnne today.
I stamped the background on white card stock with my 
Seaside Spray ink and my D size clear block. 
I added the snowflakes and some rhinestones colored
 with my Seaside Spray Stampin Blends marker.
I stamped the sentiment from So Many Stars in Golden Glitz ink.
I layered with more gold foil and place on my Crumb Cake base.
Super quick and elegant. 
Hope you have a wonderful day and come over to to play along with our last challenge for 2019!

Casing The Mini With Parisian Beauty

I love playing with the new Parisian suite in the mini catalog 
starting in January 2020. I decided to case this one from the 
catalog on page 14. I used Lovely Lipstick card stock for the base 
and a piece ran though the Parisian Flourish emboss folder. 
I used the Frost White shimmer paint rubbed over with a sponge. 
I though it would be lighter but I still like the pearl-like effect. 
I cut the center with a Layering Oval die to make a window.
I added the Crumb Cake card stock stamped with the script stamp 
from Parisian Beauty in Lipstick ink.
I stamped the tower on white in Soft Suede and cut it with matching die
called Parisian dies. I also stamped the flowers from Forever Blossoms set
in Soft Suede and colored with Stampin Blends markers in Old Olive
and Petal Pink. I hand snipped the flowers since do not have the dies yet.
I stamped the sentiment from Forever Blossoms with Soft Suede ink.
It turned out so adorable!
Hope you have a wonderful day!
Thanks for stopping by!
