GDP234 Hello Lily Pad

I decided to use more of my Lily Impressions DSP for the 
sketch challenge this week over at 
It looks to life like and so textured.
I layered this print on the white card stock.
I then cut a 1 1/2" banner in white card stock and stamped the 
sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia in Pretty Peacock ink.
I stamped the lily pad in same ink on the Pretty Peacock
card stock. I stamped the lily from the same set called Lovely Lily Pad.
The lily was stamped on white in Memento Tuxedo Black and 
colored with my Pretty Peacock and Flirty Flamingo Stampin Blends.
I then cut them out with the matching Lily Pad dies. 
I finished it off with some Pretty Peacock gems. 

Hope you can play along 
and have a wonderful Friday!
Thanks for stopping by!

PP484 Happy Spring

I challenge myself to use ribbon for the 
tic-tac-toe challenge over at 
 I just have not been reaching for it lately.
I decided to go diagonally ribbon, spring, flowers.
I got to use some new dies that SU! is offering early from the 
new annual catty that starts in June. 
They are called Ornate Layers dies and there is large suite of items
and a few stamp sets. 
I used one for the Gorgeous Grape that layered on the white base.
I then used another in Purple Posy..really like this one!
I then stamped my tulips from Timeless tulips 
in both Grape and Posy inks on white card stock.
I punched the large tulips with the Tulip builder punch.
I hand snipped the small tulips.
I stamped on white the leaves and stems in Mint Macaron.
 I used the punch for the leaves but hand snipped the stems. 
They seem a little straight. 
I added the Grape striped bow.
The sentiment was stamped on a label die from Stitched Labels dies
and I stamped just the two words from a larger sentiment in the 
Timeless Tulips set. 

Hope you enjoy your day and 
thanks for stopping by!

FabFri186 You Made My Day!

I decided these colors wanted to be on poppies!
I stamped the poppies from Painted Poppies set
in Memento Tuxedo Black on a stitched circle.
I then sponged Terracotta Tile, Daffodil Delight,
 and Pumpkin Pie on the flowers.
 I added the sun from Waterfront set in Mango Melody.
I popped it up on the Terracotta Tile designer paper background
and white base. 
I stamped the sentiment from Ornate Thanks set in VersaMark ink
and heat embossed in white emboss powder on the black strip of card stock.
I finished off with Tile colored gems. 

Hope you have wonderful day and

I had to use my Peaceful Poppies designer paper
for the fun sketch over at 
I used three prints on the front layered to the white base. 
I then stamped the sentiment from Ornate Thanks set in Rich Razzleberry ink 
on both a white stitched rectangle and a banner from the Golf Club dies. 
I colored a rhinestone in Rich Razzleberry and added for bling.

Pretty quick card.

FMS428 Kindly

I used my Botanical Prints medley kit to design the card
 for the sketch over at 
I used a Sahara Sand base and layered the Pretty Peacock 
laser cut piece on top. 
I then stamped several floral/fruit images on water color 
paper in Memento Tuxedo Black ink 
and used my water color pencils and aqua painter to color them.
I then cut them withe the matching die cuts and laid them to form a 
wreath shape over the Old Olive circle. 
I stamped the sentiment from the same set on a pre cut 
banner piece in the kit with black ink. 
I place the banner in the center since it did not look 
good to the side. 
I finished it off with the copper dragonfly embellishment.

Hope you can play along and thanks for stopping by!

GDP233 Welcome Little One

Such cuties for a baby card!
The colors for the color challenge over at 
made me think a baby card and I love using the Welcome Easter set.
I stamped the three friends in Memento Tuxedo Black ink
on white card stock and hand snipped them out.
I colored them with Stampin Blends markers.
For the chick, I colored with So Saffron.
For the bunny and lamb, I used Pool Party and Petal Pink.
All the noses have a little Pumpkin Pie. 
I then stamped the sentiment in Memento on a stitched rectangle 
and layered all on the piece of Bird Ballad DSP with Petal Pink dots.
A white base finished it off. 
I wanted to add bling but it was so cute without.

Thanks for stopping by!

PP483 Memorable Birthday

I had a masculine card in mind when I used the great sketch from Claire 
over at this week. 
I pulled out my Tropical Oasis suite for it.
I used Crumb Cake for my base and added a piece of Tropical Oasis DSP
with the Pool Party print.
 I also use another piece of the DSP in the old car print. 
I cut a strip of the same Pool Party print for the left side.
I layered some braided burlap trim over the strip of DSP.
I then stamped the sentiment from Timeless Tropical set with 
my Stazon Brown ink. It came out a little ombre but I like it.
I cut the white with the stitched rectangle die and another in Crumb Cake.
I finished it off with a Tropical Oasis trinket.

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