GDP243 Forever Blooms




My first card with the lovely Bloom & Grow bundle.
I used it to make a wedding card and for the 
floral challenge over at global-design-project.com 
I sat and thought about the color and then thought why 
am I even thinking about it..it has to be purple! 
I stamped the blooms twice in Memento Tuxedo Black
on thick white card stock. I cut them with the matching dies
called Budding Blooms dies. 
I then stamped in same ink the sentiment on white card stock
and cut it with the Stitched Rectangle dies. 
I added them to the Parisian Flourish embossed background
in white then a Highland Heather base.
For the coloring, I used the Stampin Blends markers
in Highland Heather, Purple Posy,
Granny Apple Green, and Daffodil Delight.
Hope you enjoy your weekend and 
thanks for stopping by!

FF0060 A Rest & Relax Vacay Scene




I do love the Old World Paper embossing folder. 
I used it here for the challenge over at 
festivefridaychallenge.com 
I ran the embossing folder on Calypso Coral card stock
and layered on a Calypso Coral base.
I cut the white square 3 3/4" and stamped lots of bright colors,
sun, vacation theme scene and all with a watercolor look 
per the challenge with the Waterfront set.
I used Seaside Spray for the sky, Mango Melody for the sun,
Bermuda Bay for the water, Sahara Sand for the sand,
Soft Suede for the tree trunks, and the Granny Apple Green 
for the palms. 
I stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral ink
from the Timeless Tropical set (a slight crooked).

I will be there in less than 2 weeks as we still get to go 
on our beach vacay to Sanibel Island here in Florida.
This will be our 22nd year in a row to go. Can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by!

PP493 Sunflower With Sympathy





I knew I wanted to color this lovely sunflower in purples
 from Celebrate Sunflowers set and when I saw Jaydee's tic-tac-toe 
challenge over at thepaperplayers.blogspot.com this week for the first row
 down-flower, sympathy and purple I was so happy to color it.
 I grabbed Blackberry Bliss, Highland Heather, and Mango 
Melody Stampin Blends markers for the flowers and Granny Apple Green
for the leaves. I inked them up in Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock
and then after coloring, I cut them with the matching Sunflower dies.
I then layered a piece of Highland Heather ran through with the 
Tasteful Textile embossing folder on white base. 
I then cut the white scalloped rectangle from Stitched So Sweetly dies
then layered the flower and leaves on. I stamped the sentiment from a retired 
SAB set called Lasting Lily in Memento Tuxedo Black
 on white card stock and cut with the Ornate Frames dies. 
I finished it off with some pearls.

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

CTS374 Thank You For The Flamingos

CTS374


I wanted to use some more Tropical Oasis DSP 
before it retired this week(today actually). 
I grabbed two prints for the sketch challenge over at 
casethissketch.blogspot.com 
I layered the leaves print on a Grapefruit Grove base 
and then added the Shaded Spruce layer before finally
laying the flamingo print designer paper. 
I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks set 
in Early Espresso ink on Grapefruit Grove card stock
and cut it with the Ornate Layers dies
 and placed some more Shaded Spruce card stock behind.
I finished it off with a leaf trinket.
Quick, tropical card!
Thanks for stopping by!

FMS437 Good Things




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.
I started with the sketch in mind from 
freshlymadesketch.blogspot.com and grabbed the block
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.
I cut three of the Night of Navy leaves from Nature's Thoughts dies.
I added a little Wink of Stell-clear to the center of the flowers!
I just love Navy and yellow together!

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

GDP242 A Little Poppies Note




Trying to use the loads of retiring designer paper I have before 
they all retire next week. I grabbed some Peaceful Poppies in two designs 
for the sketch challenge over at global-design-project.com this week.
I added the floral print to the Blackberry Bliss base.
I then added the purple dotted print on top after running some 
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 
Tasteful Labels dies. 
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!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a blessed weekend!

Fabfri190 Simply The Best!




When I saw this bright color challenge over at 
fabfridaystampinchallenge.blogspot.com
I thought about my tulip set but decided to use the 
Tulip builder punch instead. 
I started with punching a Melon Mambo, a Flirty Flamingo 
and a Blushing Bride tulip along with Call Me Clover leaves. 
I then added these to a piece of Pineapple Punch
card stock with the Basket Weave embossing folder.
I layered it with a piece of Melon Mambo card stock 
and placed on the white base.
I then stamped the sentiment from the Varied Vases set
in Melon Mambo ink on a white label I punched 
with the Lovely Labels pick a punch.
I finished it off with the glitter enamel dots in Melon Mambo.

Thanks for stopping by
 and hopefully you can play along in the color challenge!
