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

Thanks for stopping by!

FMS384 & FF0032 Mother's Day Tea Pot

#festivefridaychallenge, #FF0032, Mother's Day, Pink

I saw a chance to make this into a Mother's Day card
for my mom when I saw the sketch.
I grabbed the Tea Together set because my mom
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
 will some new products coming soon in SU!

Poppy Get Better

My friend,  Brian King at  , 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 
thanks for stopping by!

GDP185 Highland Heather Birthday

Love the monochrome challenge and of course, 
I pulled out Highland Heather with white for my color!
No surprise there!
I stamped the background with the lace doily image from
Very Vintage set in Highland Heather on a piece of 
Highland card stock.
I added a piece of white card stock across so you could see 
my pretty Highland sheer ribbon. I placed this on a white base.
I stamped the floral image from same set along with the sentiment 
again Highland Heather on a stitched rectangle.  
I finished with some pearls!
Quick and sweet!
Hope you can play along over at

FabFri161 A Framed Birthday


This was such a quick card because
 I had several of this pieces sitting on my desk 
from previous card classes.  Love when there are leftovers
I can use to make another card.
I have a Very Vanilla base along with a Vanilla frame.
I piece of Blushing Bride card stock in between stamped 
with a fav sentiment from Humming Along in Memento 
Tuxedo Black ink.
For the frame I had cut an oval out in the middle.
I stamped the flowers from All That You Are set in
Memento on Very Vanilla and colored them with the 
Stampin Blend markers in Lovely Lipstick. I used a 
Lemon Lime Twist marker for the center of the large one.
I cut them with the matching dies from Frosted Bouquet dies.
I had the stems and filter left from April card class also 
cut from the same dies in Lemon Lime and Pear Pizzazz.
I pooped it all on and finished up with the pink pearls from 
the Artisan pearls.

Hope you can play along with the sketch over at
