Hoping For Perfect!

I love this color combo together!  I got it right from the designer paper!
SU! always does an awesome job with the designer series papers (DSP).
I used some By The Shore DSP on the side 
and stamped almost all the images from A Day At The Beach
in the three colors-Mint Macaron, Dapper Denim, and Calypso Coral!
I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sentiments and layer it with the 
Tags & Labels dies. Finished it off with some thick twine in Coral.

I love the way it turned out but could see it all in flip flops, too!
Have a wonderful and perfect day!
Thanks for stopping by!

FMS280 Thinking Of You!

Pop Of Paradise was just calling my name for this sketch challenge!
I stamped the flamingo on an oval because I was not going to 
fussy cut him.  I then stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black
ink and then cut it out with the one of the Sweet & Sassy heart dies.
I added another heart die behind in Melon Mambo. I did stamp the 
leaves in Cucumber Crush and cut them out by hand.
Love the gold dots on the designer paper!
Just had to pop some Pop Of Pink DSP in a few layers on the card!

I hope you can play around with this sketch, too...head over to

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed weekend!

Adventure Awaites!

My second card for classes next week is a set 
I love but do not use much!  It is called Places You'll Go!
I stamped the globe on Soft Sky card stock in Night of Navy ink.
I used a circle die to cut it out and pop up on globe stand 
stamped in Night of Navy. I stamped the sentiment on 
Calypso Coral and punched it out with the Duet Banner punch.
I used the Sparkle emboss folder with Soft Sky and off centered it
 and added some thick white twine. 
This could make a cute grad card, too!

I hope you have an adventurous day!
Thanks for stopping by!

Egg-stra Special Class Card

This is my first card for classes next week.  I wanted my 
guests to be able to use several of the dies from this set called
Basket Bunch because they are so darn cute!!!
I stamped the basket on Tip Top Taupe in Early Espresso
 and cut it out with the matching dies. I stamped the eggs 
also in Espresso and colored them with markers and cut out with dies.
I stamped the bow in Blushing Bride and cut out with dies.
I stamped the bunny(my fav) in Espresso and colored his ears and checks with 
Blushing Bride marker and bow tie with Pool Party marker.
I cut the grass also with matching dies called Basket Builder.
I used the layering square framelits for the scene 
and the sentiment is from the same set. 
I finished it off with the Petals emboss folder and a little 1/8' white ribbon.
Love the way it turned out because it did take a while to design
 and get the way I wanted it.

Hope you have blessed Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!

Flip Flop It!

Just had to play with the Day At The Beach set
as soon as I got it.  I thought of some light, beachy colors
 for my fav stamp-the flip flops! Some So Saffron, Flirty Flamingo
and Mint Macaron flip flops...yay!
I stamped them around the background 
and then layered the colors of card stock.
I stamped a single pair and cut it with layering circle dies
 and a stitched circle and then a scalloped circle. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Tuesday!

Love That Builder Birdcage

I just had to pull out the SAB glimmer paper again.
I stamped the little cage and a little place for the little birdie to sit.
I added the love sentiment under it to keep it simple and then went 
glimmer and stripy foe the rest of the card!

I hope you have a wonderful Monday
 and thanks for stopping by!

Carousel Slide Card

I designed a slide card for a shoe box swap this weekend.
I used the Carousel Birthday set. 
I stamped the horse image in Peekaboo Peach ink and then rocked it in 
Calypso Coral ink. I cut with stitched circle and then a Peekaboo Peach 
scallop circle behind.  The band on front is stamped with the swirl stamp 
fro the same set and I sponged some Peekaboo Peach on it.
The DSP tri panels on the from are from Cupcakes & Carousels DSP
first cut at 3' x 5" and then cut to a triangle. 

The inside Early Espresso piece is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8' with
a layer of Very Vanilla on top.
I stamped and sponged on it, too.  I hole punched and ran 
some Peekaboo Peach ribbon through for the pull.
The card all together is a standard size A2 card--4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

I hope you have a lovely week and thanks for stopping by!
