PP551 Thinking Of You Seahorse


I thought of the tags and seahorse when I saw Ann's sketch over at this week. A friend made me a card when she added the seahorse die cut on a Tailor Made Tag die and I thought it was awesome. I cut my seahorse from the Ombre specialty paper from Sea Life dies and popped it on the white tag. I then stamped the sand from the Seascape set in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake card stock. I also stamped the sentiment from Art Gallery in Misty Moonlight ink on the bottom. I went around the edges of the Crumb Cake with my ink pad to give some sponge effect. I added all to the white base and finished up with some opal rounds. Simple but cute!

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

Hello Hello Hello Tiger


I love pink and green together and so I tried this new Evening Evergreen with the lovely Petal Pink and love it! Here I started with the the Petal Pink card stock on the white base and then some of the animal print from In The Wild DSP on top. I also place a strip of Evening Evergreen cards tock across where the colors. I did not stamp my tiger but cut it out from another print from the In The Wild DSP with the matching die from Big Cats dies. I then cut some white leaves from the same die set for under my cat. 
I stamped the sentiment three times from the Wild Cats set in Evening Evergreen ink on Petal Pink card stock and hand snipped them out. I finished it off with some Evening Evergreen jewels. 

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

Thank You Welcoming Woods


I am using the Welcoming Woods set in the new holiday catalog which starts next week on August 3rd, 2021 for the first time today. I stamped the trees in Early Espresso ink on a piece of Basic White card stock. I then blended some Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody and So Saffron inks along with a bit of Sahara Sand from top to bottom with a blending brush. I stamped the land stamp which fits in between the trees at the bottom with Bumblebee ink. I layered a piece of Early Espresso card stock behind then added it to a piece of Beauty Of The Earth DSP with the wood grain print to my Pumpkin Pie base. 
I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Espresso ink on white card stock and snipped them out separately. I finished it off with some new Brushed Metallic adhesive backed dots.  

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

Artistically Happy Birthday!!!


I made this card to add to my birthday stash with the Expressions In Ink suite. I started with the print of Expression In Ink DSP added to the Polished Pink base after running some Pale Papaya ribbon around. I stamped the two flowers in Polished Pink and Pale Papaya inks from the Artistically Inked set on white card stock and cut with the matching Artistic dies. I stamped the sentiment in Polished Pink ink on a strip of Basic White card stock. I also added gold leaves from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera pack. I finished it off with the bow from the same Pale Papaya 3?8" open weave ribbon. 

Hope you have a artistic Monday and thanks for stopping by!

Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards


I was given a set of the Hand-Penned Memories & More cards and just had to make a card with one of the smaller cards from the pack. I grabbed some of the matching DSP called Hand-Penned DSP for the background layered on a piece of Mint Macaron card stock then a white base. The card from the Memories & More pack had the pattern plus the sentiment and the floral stem on it. I then cut several leaves in Mint Macaron card stock plus flowers in Daffodil Delight and Blushing Bride card stocks with the Penned dies. I finished it off with a gem in the center of flower.  These cards in the pack can be used to make fast and easy full cards or scrapbooks/smash books. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Have an amazing weekend!

We are headed back on vacay for more beach time on Marco Island next week and so I will return with more creativity on Monday July 26th.

PP549 Thanks Blue Daisies


I knew as soon as I saw Jaydee's color challenge this week over at I would do lots of coloring on these daisies using the Daisy Garden background stamp on a white background. I stamped the large image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used my Misty Moonlight and Just Jade Stampin Blends markers to color the flowers and leaves. I used the Bumblebee Stampin Write marker for the center as there is no blend in this color. I also added some Bumblebee color dots around the daisies. I added the background to a Crumb Cake base to fulfill my neutral color pick and then stamped a sentiment from Simply Succulent set on the same color card stock in Misty  Moonlight ink and cut it out with the Potted Succulents die. I added some Night Of Navy twine behind for more texture. 

Hope you have an lovely Thursday!

Pretty Pansy Paper Pumpkin Box For Pals Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Wonderful Cards/Projects from the Garden” where our design team showcase projects from things found in a garden, such as flowers, vegetables, fruits, or even a garden scene. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Once you finish here, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Don't you just love these mini paper pumpkin boxes!  So much room to design on the top or all over the box. I just had to use the Pansy Petals suite for the garden theme this month. Love all the colors and it makes me smile! 
I first spritzed the box with a spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol and 5 drops of Fresh Freesia ink. It dries real quick. I folded the box together and wrapped two prints of the Pansy Petals DSP around the box. You can slide it off to get inside the box. I then cut the white scalloped rectangle with the Scalloped Contours dies and stamped the sentiment from Pansy Patch in Blackberry Bliss ink on the right corner. The flowers plus the leaves are all cut from another print of the Pansy Petals DSP with the Pansy dies and popped on. I finished it up with the Fresh Freesia 3/8" open weave ribbon tied in a bow. 

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team, because the Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on August 11th. Our theme will be “My Happiest Season” when our Design Team creates a project showcase projects inspired by their favorite season of the year. Until then, have fun in your craft space.
