Thank You Lemon Lime Daisies

I like the Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Black color combo.
I decided while I had the daisy set out I would design something
with this color combo and the this set.
I stamped Memento Tuxedo Black on Lemon Lime Twist twice
and punched out.  I stamped more daisies in Lemon Lime Twist
on Whisper White and black for the center.
The sentiment is from the same set.

Hope you have an amazing day!
Thanks for stopping by!

You Are Amazing In Fresh Fig

I cased another card for the new annual catalog on page 129.
That one is in Powder Pink but using the same set. 
First, I grabbed Fresh Fig card stock for a base
and the Fresh Floral is so pretty. I added some Sweet Sugarplum 
card stock embossed with Sparkle emboss folder.  
I added some Fresh Fig woven ribbon behind a Whisper White medallion
cut from the Eastern Medallion thinlits dies. I stamped a fav sentiment from
All Things Thanks in Fresh Fig-what else? 
Finished it off with a few rhinestone.
I hope you have refreshing day!

A Note For You

I pulled out my Wood Words set to make a cute and quick
note card with some Wood Textures DSP.
I added some 1/4" cooper trim ribbon around with a simple knot.
I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive and placed on a banner of Whisper White.
The flowers are stamped in Powder Pink.  

I stamped some in Powder Pink on the envelope, too!

I hope you have lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Welcome To You

I know the background is a little plain but I wanted to focus
on the door and decor since this was my first card with 
this At Home With You bundle.
I stamped the door on Wood Textures DSP 
and welcome mat on Crumb Cake in Soft Suede ink.
I stamped the lanterns and the wreath on Whisper White in Basic Gray.
I then cut them all with matching dies called At Home framelits dies.
I colored the door handle with So Saffron marker
 and then used a blender pen with So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay inks
to color.  I like how they pop on the Bermuda Bay base.

I did some casing from Amy Koenders over 
at  She did more of a wood background and 
other elements I will try later.

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

Daisies For You

I loved stamping these wild flowers and daisies 
so played with them again!
This time I stamped on a circle and layered it with a scallop one in Coral.
I added the lovely Delightful Daisy DSP behind in one of my fav prints
from this designer paper.
I finished it off with the very cool 1/4" double stitched ribbon in 
Daffodil Delight.
I loved the way it looked with a sentiment and 
I will add one to the inside when I go to use it.

I hope you have a beautiful day!

Beautiful Thing In Navy

This is another card I saw in my Stampin' Success
magazine for demos I wanted to case.
I used Sahara Sand card stock for my background.
  I stamped the lighthouse in Sahara Sand 
and then Night of Navy.
I stamped the sand in Sahara Sand. I stamped the light beam in 
Whisper White Craft ink along with some grass and the birds,
I then went over the grass and birds with navy.
It does not show up on my photo here but gives a shadow effect.
I finished with a sentiment from Colorful Seasons which I keep 
on grabbing from this set!

I hope this peaceful scene helps you have a lovely day!

Crackled Chair In Berry Burst

This card I cased from Amy Koenders over at
I love the crackled designer paper from Color Theory DSP paper stack
 and so I used two different prints here in Berry Burst.
I cut the chair from the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies and the 
sentiment is from the matching stamp set
called Colorful Seasons.
I cannot seem to stop grabbing the sentiments from this set!
I finished this card with some black twine.
So simple bit the DSP looks so rich!

Hope you have wonderful day!

I Like You

I still did not have the matching dies for this set 
when I designed this card.  I wanted to use the stamps 
to make a fun and colorful background.
I choose the leaves which are two step and stamped them in 
Lemon Lime Twist.
 I added a dots In Berry Burst which are probably an inside flower
stamp to the background. 
I stamped the flower two step and added a Berry Burst bow 
from the 2017-2019 In color bitty bow packs.  They are bows 
already made and have a glue dot/dimensional on the back so
ready to place on your project.

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

Happy Birthday In Tranquil Tide

This is another card I saw in the Stampin' Success 
demo magazine except I layered the scallop 
Berry Burst behind.  I used the new Fresh Floral DSP in 
Tranquil Tide layered on a Tranquil Tide card stock base.
I stamped the sentiment from the Label Me Pretty
set in Memento Tuxedo Black and used my blender pen 
to color the flowers in Powder Pink, 
Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide.
I punched it out with  the matching Pretty Label punch.
I layered on a piece of Berry Burst cut from the Layering Ovals framelits dies.
I finished it off with some Powder Pink ribbon!

Hope you enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Hello Eclectic!

I have been waiting for my dies to make the card (my version)
from the cover of the new 2017-2018 catalog.
I looks busy but I love all the details.
I cut the Night of Navy die first and added it to the 
awesome DSP called Naturally Eclectic after I cut it in half. 
I then stamped on the Stitched Shapes die cut with peekaboo Peach
and then some Lemon Lime Twist. I added the sentiment
from the same set called Oh So Eclectic. 
I stamped two leaves in Emerald Envy
 and then cut two out from the card stock. 
 I also cut out the Berry Burst flower
 to layer over the top.  
Finally touches are the gold facet gem for the center of the flower
and the Berry Burst 5/8" crinkled seam binding. 

Love this card and all the colors!
Hope you have a colorful day 
and thanks for stopping by!

PP349 Fab Flamingo

Well this played into my hands! I could not wait to get home 
this past weekend to play with my new sets.  
They came while I was gone on vacation.
I really love this Fabulous Flamingo set!
I started with Flirty Flamingo and then 
stamped off off for a light feathers and then 
Memento Tuxedo Black for the outline.
I used Pool Party for the water and the grass with 
 Lemon Lime Twist.
I love the Pinewood Planks emboss folder.
Works really well with this set!
I got some blue ink in the top corner so I 
had to place a Flirty Flamingo bow.  

Hope you can play along with the theme
this week!

TTTC002 Thank Goodness For A Friend Like You

Really like this new challenge.  I love to play in a tic tac toe game 
of any kind!  I choose the last column on the right with 
wood, yellow and embellishment. 
I started with some Wood Textures DSP for the background. 
This is my fav print from this paper stack. 
I stamped the shells in Crumb Cake, So Saffron, and Calypso Coral
then I poorly hand snipped them.  I really wish I was good at cut things out.  
Never have been good at cutting esp. a straight line.
I added a wonderful sentiment from this set
which So Many Shells is full of these.
For my embellishment I ran some So Saffron twine
that just retired. Simple but I really like the 
way it turned out for my first shell card.
Hope you can play along with the challenge soon.
Head over to to see more.

Dragonfly Blues On Glossy Paper

Another card with glossy white card stock and ink and water!
I did a little more casing from my Stampin' Success magazine for demos.
I rubbed three colors of ink with a sponge on my glossy white card stock:
Dapper Denim, Marina Mist and Pool Party.
I then spritzer a bit of water in my hand a dripped it on the paper.
I let it dry for this water effect.
I stamped the sentiment from Colorful Seasons in Early Espresso. 
I added a couple of dragonflies cut from the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits dies
in Whisper White and Marina Mist.

I will for sure do this technique again!

Thanks for stopping by! 
Have a blessed Sunday!

Just A Note on Glossy Paper

I did some casing from the Stampin' Success 
magazine us demos receive from Stampin' Up!
It has loads of samples and tips and business info.
This is a technique using glossy white card stock
and ink refills and water!
I dropped ink from the refill bottles in Melon Mambo,
Calypso Coral, and Peekaboo Peach on the paper. 
I then spray it lots with water in a stampin' spritzer.
I let the ink run and the blotted it with a tissue.
I let it dry which was really quick.
I layered it on some Calypso Coral card stock and added a sentiment
stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Peekaboo Peach.
I used a piece of a white doily behind
 and then finished it with a bow of thick Whisper
White twine.

I hope you can try this technique soon!
Stop back tomorrow for another one using the glossy paper.

Hope your day is colorful and thanks for stopping by!

Delightful Daisy Suite

I love the the samples for this set 
in the new catalog and I decided to 
case this catalog from page 126.  
I used the mix of flowers and stems on 
a Lots of Labels die.  I placed a Calypso Coral
banner behind with some of the lovely
Delight Daffodil  1/4" double-stitched ribbon. 
I added some sweet Delightful Daisy DSP.
I finished it off with a gold clip.
I did not add a sentiment because it was so pretty and 
I need some cards in my stash that have no sentiment.

I hope you have a delightful day 
and thanks for stopping by!

Wood Words With Pretty Label

I have been wanting to play with these flowers from 
the Wood Words set again. Not sure I love the 
Brick Wall in the center but kept it and layered 
with the Label Me Pretty stamps and punch over. 
I really like the Berry Burst and Powder Pink
color combo. I used a Layering Circle framelit for the sentiment
and a scallop one in Powder Pink behind so gives a little texture.
I also grabbed three glitter enamel dots for the bottom to finish it off!

Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks

Jar Card Revisted

I had stamped this jar with the stems in or showing through
when I was designing for my card class. 
I decided I did not like it for that card and re stamped my jar.
When I had some pieces left over from cutting for class,
 I decided to use this and make a card for my stash.
I used Melon Mambo on the flowers, jar and sentiment but
when I grabbed a base, I grabbed the new Berry Burst to use.
Looks pretty much in sync so we will go with it!
The sentiment is from Watercolor Wings and all the others are from
Jar of Love.
I did use a blender pen to place a little water in the bottom
of the jar with Soft Sky ink.

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

I stamped the daisy on white with Night of Navy plus Daffodil Delight in the center.
I punched out with matching punch and popped it up on a white circle

and added a bow.  A quick sentiment from Oh So Eclectic and

PP347 A Frozen Birthday Treat

I have many stamp sets that are clearly birthday sets but for this 
challenge I thought I would challenge myself by not using them!
I pulled out the under used Mixed Drinks set and went for it!
I started with the drink.  I want it to look tropical and possibly
frozen so I choose Peekaboo Peach for inside the
Basic Gray glass.  I added the little umbrella stamp by coloring it 
with Basic Gray on the stem and Island Indigo on the umbrella.

I then cut it out with the Layering Circles dies 
and then cut from a scrap of card the Island Indigo scallop circle.
However, when I did I thought how cool to put the circle in the middle of the 
negative image.
I layered fun Peekaboo Peach polka dots in the recently retired DSP
behind and on top of more Island Indigo for the base. 
I finished it off with a thick white twine bow!
The sentiment was grabbed from Birthday Banners set!
Head over to to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

Just Breathe Birds

Again creating a background by stamping with a clear block.
I used Pool Party ink this time with the block. 
I added sand with Crumb Cake ink and Grass with Old Olive and 
stamped the birds and sentiment in Soft Suede. 
I only added a strip of Soft Suede to the base so the scene is the focus.

I leave for the beach tomorrow and can't wait to be relaxing there and 
listening to the waves of the ocean. 
I have tried to have a blog post each day and hope you have

 and the light shining from it to make the sketch.

Island Indigo. I stamped some water in Sky but used a
