Cherish Dragonfly


I wanted to use some more of my Dandy Garden DSP before it retires in June. I grabbed the print which I can punch out a dragonfly to get this Calypso Coral one. I also punched two small ones with the Dragonflies punch from the other side of that same DSP print. I then added the Coral print of DSP to a white piece of card stock and ran some white ribbon around before layering on the Blackberry Bliss base. I cut the stitched square from Stitched Shapes dies in white and then layered on a Blackberry Bliss one. I popped up on dragonfly after stamping the sentiment in Bliss ink from Etched In Nature-a new set coming in the SU! 2021-2022 annual catalog on May 4th. I finished off with some holiday rhinestones in Pumpkin Pie. 
Hope you have a fab day and thanks for stopping by!

PP537 Posy In Polished Pink


I made this card for an OnTour event online with SU! this past weekend. I was showing off the Pansy Petals suite and the new in color Polished Pink.  It works great for Laurie's clean and simple birthday challenge over at  I stamped the flowers, stem and leaves with the Pansy Patch set and cut with the matching dies. The flowers was stamped in Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, and Early Espresso for the center. The leaves/stem stamped in Evening Evergreen. I added it to a stitched rectangle of the Natural Touch specialty paper and another cut with Polished Pink card stock. I popped these up on a print of the Pansy Petals DSP and layered it on a Polished pink base. I stamped the sentiment in Polished pink ink and punched with the Double Oval punch.

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

Hydrangea Hill Gift Bags


I decorated white gift bags with the Hydrangea Hill DSP and card stock for my guest this week at card classes. I used a piece of the DSP cut 4" by 6". I added  a Purple Posy Stitched So Sweetly die and then cut the flower from Old Olive card stock and another print of DSP. I finished it off with a Gorgeous Grape glitter dot. 
Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Father's Day Card


This is my Father's Day card for classes this week. I wanted to use the Soar Confidently set and do some fun background.  For the background, I started with a piece of Whisper White and sponged on Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue inks. I stamped some compasses from the Sailing Home set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then ran it through the Subtles embossing folder for texture. I added it to the piece of Basic Black card stock and a Pacific Point base. I added a strip of Pacific Point card stock across and added the sentiment stamped in same color on a white strip. I cut two stitched rectangles in black and white. I stamped the hot air balloon on in Memento Black and added a little Pacific Point ink with the sponge dauber. I finished it off with a iridescent pearl. 

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

Thinking Of You In Blooms


This fun card is for card classes next week combining the Blossoms in Bloom set and the Brilliant Wings dies. I used a fav color combo in Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green.
I stamped the big floral image from the set in Gorgeous grape ink on a white piece of card stock measuring 4" by 5 1/2" and then I cut it in half so my class can make two cards from this one image. 
I actually cut it after I added the Mango flowers, Granny Apple leaves and the Memento Tuxedo Black centers. I then layered this 2" by 5 1/2" strip on a Gorgeous Grape base with some Mango Melody cut 2 1/2" by 5 1/2".  I then cut two Grape butterflies from the Brilliant Wings dies to pop on. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black and punched with the Double Oval punch along with the scallop Grape card stock. I finished off with Grape rhinestones that are retired. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Hopping By With Kangaroo & Company


I have another card for classes next week with the Kangaroo & Company bundle. I went with a neutral color in So Saffron and Mint Macaron in case someone wants to make a baby card with this for class. 
I added the Tasteful Textile embossed So Saffron to the base after running twine around and adding the bow. I then cut a Stitched So Sweetly scallop rectangle in white card stock and stamped some grass in Mint Macaron and the sentiment in Early Espresso. I then stamped the mama kangaroo and baby in Early Espresso on Gray Granite card stock and cut them with the matching Kangaroo dies. I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with the Mint Macaron, So Saffron and Petal Pink Stampin Blends markers. I added a rosy cheek to the kangaroos with the Petal Pink blend. I finished off with a few pearls. 

Hope you have a fun Thursday and thanks for hopping by!

Mothers' Day With A Welcoming Window


Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Great Family Occasions.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I love the Welcoming Window bundle and I am so glad it is is carrying over for the next year. I look forward to using it some more. You can see it now in the SU! 2021 Spring mini catalog and it will be in the new annual catalog which kicks off May 4th, 2021. It has a lovely Mother's Day sentiment in the set and so I knew I would use it for my Mother's Day card for classes this year. I had this idea in my head and then my friend and fellow Pal, Brian King, made a card super close so I just had to do some casing.  You can see Brian's card here
I started with the Pool Party Base and added the Soft Suede card stock on top. I then stamped on my Whisper White panel with Cajun Craze ink with the brick stamp in Welcoming Window. I left a white space in the middle for my window. I then stamped the shutters in Soft Suede on white along with the flowers in Just Jade and Rococo Rose and cut them with the matching dies called Window Flower Box dies. I used these to cut the window in Soft Suede and the flower jug in Pool Party card stock. After arranging, I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party ink to finish it off.  

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on May 12th when our theme is “2021-2023 New In Colors” when our Design Team creates a project with the new family of In Colors for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.
