Beautiful Blessing Daisies

I am using this card as the Mother's Day card for classes this week.
If someone does not a MD card, then they can use it for many occasion with
this sentiment of add another.
I stamped the scene of flowers with the Daisy Delight set
in Mint Macaron for the stems, Powder pink for the solid part of flowers and 
the rest in Berry Burst. 
I layered some Berry behind before adding on my background of Fresh 
Florals DSP in Powder Pink. 
I ran a sweet berry Burst metallic trim ribbon around and added the bow.
Placed it all on a thick Whisper White base to finish it off.
The sentiment stamped in Berry Burst ink is from the retiring Rose Wonder set. 
I sure have loved the sentiments in that set! 
I have some happy Mother's Day sentiment they can add inside.

Hope your Monday is full of blessings and 
thanks for stopping by!

Lilypad Lake Thinking Of You

Love this new bundle called Lilypad Lake!
I am using it as the fourth card for classes this week.
I used a Island indigo base and layered a piece of 
Soft Sky over after I cut the "waves" in it with a die from the 
matching dies called Lakeside framelits dies.
Love how the darker blue shows through!
I cut out some grass in Wild Wasabi to place on the scene.
I stamped the crane, lilypads sun and the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black.
The crane I added a touch of some Smoky Slate and colored the 
lilypads in Wasabi and Pink Pirouette plus the sun in So Saffron.
I like the clean and simple scene.

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

Bubble Over Day

My third card for classes next week.
It was also my first time playing with this set and dies. 
I started with my colors knowing I wanted Bermuda Bay as 
my base and background. I ran a piece of this color through the 
Big Shot with a Sparkle embossing folder. 
I then stamped on a strip of Calypso Coral in the same color ink.
After layering it on my background, I ran a piece of the 
Lemon Lime Twist striped ribbon around. 
I stamped the bottles in both Lemon Lime and Daffodil Delight inks.
I stamped the label in Bay and Coral and punched the out with a 
3/4' circle punch. I cut them out with the matching dies along with the bubbles
stamped off once in Bay and a white straw. Love the bend in it!
The bubbles were not easy to grab with the glue dots to adhere but worth it!
I finished it off with the sentiment stamped in Bay on a white banner.

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

Dapper Day

This is my second card for classes next week!
I started with my two DSP prints from True Gentleman DSP,
 one on top and one on bottom.
I layered them on a piece of Tranquil Tide and ran the Night of Navy
trim around. I layered those on a thick Very Vanilla base.
I stamped the Dapper sentiment on Very Vanilla in Night of Navy ink.
I cut it out with the Layering Oval die and layered a Tranquil Tide one behind.
I added the lookin' sharp stamped in Tranquil ink on Vanilla at bottom 
because I wanted to use the cool punch called Tailored Tag.

Fun card we can use for Father's Day or a masculine birthday!
Hope you enjoy your day!

Stained Glass Birthday

Love these butterflies in the new stamp set called 
Painted Glass.  The suite has a lovely set and a great font plus the dies
cut some shapes like the butterfly, a bird and a rose but they also
have detailed dies to make windows and backgrounds.  
It also has some vellum printed with images like stained glass to color.
All of these products will be available to purchase 
with the new 2018-19 annual catalog. 
Notice I used a new in color here- Grapefruit Grove. 
I really like it with Fresh Fig!
This is my first card for classes next week
 and a sneak peak of new product for my class.
I layered the white background embossed with the Hexagon
embossing folder on a Fresh Fig base.  I laid a strip of the Grapefruit
card stock across and then layered the lattice like design in Fig over.
I ran 1/4" white organza ribbon and placed a bow. 
On the stitched square, I layered two butterflies cut with the 
matching dies called Stained Glass thinlits dies.
I colored them in Fresh Fig and Grapefruit Grove inks with my 
blender pen after stamping them in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I Stamped the sentiment in Fig and added some bling!

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

PP390 Beautiful Blooms For You

I wanted to play some more with this wonderful set 
before it retires at end May.  I love to color the flower!
I used my Stampin Blends after I stamped the image
 in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I am using the new Lovely Lipstick Stampin Blend I received at Onstage
a few weeks back. The middle is the new in color called Pineapple Punch.
The leaves are in Old Olive.  I love Old olive but excited to get some more 
Stampin Blends in other greens soon.
I cut the flower with an oval die.  
I used the Lovely Lipstick base and a strip for my sentiment.
I added some pearls because I could!
I am also using a retiring embossing folder called Brick Wall.

FabFri135 Happniess Is

Happiness is having friends!  And paper crafting!
I need to use up loads of my DSP retiring at end of May
and the Coffee Break DSP is one I still have a bunch of laying around!
I used several prints for this card starting with the background in Soft Sky.
I layered it on a piece of Early Espresso card stock for the base.
I added another cool print in Espresso and coffee mugs/pots/cups.
I cut a white square and added it to pop my die cuts.
Actually I hand cut the coffee pot and small cup from the designer paper.
I then stamped the large coffee cup in Early Espresso on Soft Sky card stock.
I stamped the sentiment in same ink on cup. I added a Garden Green lid.
I added a banner in Espresso behind the images for the sketch.
I have lots of the corrugated pieces so I took a heart
and rubbed some Espresso ink on it before placing an Soft Sky
enamel dot.  Placing a few more dots finished it off.

Hope you can play along at

TTTC044 Lots Of Love

Again, I an trying to use lots of DSP I have been hoarding this year.
I love the Whole Lots Of Lovely paper and prints but not used much.
I went down the last column with dimension, ink and patterned paper.
I used the ovals and the leaves plus the flower I cut by hand to give dimension.
I think the DSP also has loads of dimension, too.
I layered the paper on the Calypso Coral base. I used markers to color
in the sentiment with Coral and Pool Party.
I stamped the flower in Coral and hand snipped it out.
I cut the leaves in Pear Pizzazz with the Eclectic Layers thinlits dies.
I finished it off with a glitter dot in green on the flower center.
This card is already on its way to my mom!

CTS268 Awesome Flamingo

I love this flamingo and glad it is carrying over.  
I did not stamp him perfectly and I am ok with that. 
He looks very fluffy!  
I thought of him as soon as i saw this sketch
 and I thought of the lighthouse in the High Tide set
 but the flamingo in more fun!
I used Basic Gray to stamp the outline of the bird and then 
the other two stamps in Flirty Flamingo and Powder Pink to color him.
I stamped the water in Soft Sky and the grass and foliage in Lemon Lime Twist.
After I stamped the sentiment in Flamingo ink, I added some of the clear 
epoxy dots to make the water look wet!
I layered with Basic Gray and Flamingo card stocks and 
placed them on a Basic Gray base.

Hope you can play along with the fun sketch over at

FMS333 Amazing Daisy

I have hoarded (as usual) so much of these and other DSP
so i am trying to use lots up before it retires at end of May.
I started with this fun daisy print from the Delightful Daisy DSP
for my background and layered it on a Daffodil Delight card stock base.
I then added the white and Daffodil circles.  I punched out the two daisies
in Whisper White card stock with the Daisy punch and started my sponging.
I used Daffodil and Night of Navy lightly around the two flowers layered together.
I added the gold faceted gem in the middle for bling.  
I ran the Amazing die through with both Navy and Daffodil card stock
and decided to layered them together for the sentiment. 
I stamped the You from Thoughtful Banners set in Navy and snipped it out.
I love the yellow and navy together!

GDP134 One Of A Kind

Love this fav set/bundle in the new 
Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 annual catalog..available June 1st.
I stamped the guy in Fresh Fig from the Sea of Textures 
and used the matching dies cut to cut him perfectly out
 to pop him on a piece of Sahara Sand cut with the net die
all from the Under The Seas framelits.  
I layered some Fig behind with a little linen thread. 
The Tranquil Textures DSP is so rich and beautiful. 
This piece has a texture of Night of Navy and Fresh Fig on White.
I layered more Navy behind before placing on a Sahara Sand base.
I used one of the sentiments from the set on white stamped with Fig ink.

PP389 Mermaid Kisses

I love unicorns but have no stamps with them. One day maybe!
But so happy I do have a mermaid set! It is called Magical Mermaid.
I say often " If you can be a mermaid, be a mermaid!"
I love coloring her and do not mind fussy cutting her out either.
After stamping my mermaid in Memento Tuxedo Black,
I colored her with my Stampin Blends markers in Light Pink Pirouette,
Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.
But I think making this under the sea background was more fun!
I started with a piece of Sahara Sand cut 4" by 5 1/4".
  I stamped the shell bits on the bottom three times in Early Espresso. 
I stamped the seaweed a few times on each side then I started the sponging!
I used Sand on the bottom and then Bermuda Bay going heavy up the sides
 and light toward the center.
I stamped the sentiment in Espresso. I used the new 
Under The Sea framelits for the extra plants/seaweed plus
the little starfish.  I cut the starfish in Daffodil Delight and drew
the lines with an Espresso marker.
I finished it off by placing my background on a Bermuda Bay base.

Love the challenge and hope you can play along

FMS332 Main Squeeze

I was thinking of these lemons and this Lemon Zest stamp set
and how I have not used them in a while. Then this sketch popped up
so it was great timing!  I stamped the lemons in Daffodil Delight.
I used my 1 3/4" circle punch to cut the slice and the Lemon Builder punch
for the whole lemon and leaves. The leaves are stamped in Garden Green. 
I thought they would pop with some black and white for a background. 
I used some Whole Lot of Lovely DSP for the background layered on the thick
Whisper White base. I placed a strip of Basic Black card stock on the paper before 
adding the sentiment banner.

Best Wishes In Purple

Well, I was asked to make a wedding card for someone to give a 
sweet couple getting married this weekend. They asked if I could handle purple?
Since purple is my fav color, I said I could handle it!
I hope they love it!  I do!
I started with the water color paper and washed some Wisteria Wonder 
over it with my aqua painter. It is very faint here but shows better in person.
I then used a few pieces from the Sweet Soiree embellishment kit.
First, I used the white cake with silver details but I watercolored 
Elegant Eggplant on the flowers and some Old Olive on the leaves.
I cut a cake stand from silver foil and layered them together.
I added lots of vellum flowers plus stems/leaves to the top.
I stamped the flowers in Eggplant and cut them with the matching dies.
I finished them off with small pearls.
 I ran some 1/4" organza ribbon around the paper and made a sweet bow.
I layered it all on the water color paper then Wisteria and finally the 
Eggplant card stock base.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cake Soiree
stamp set in Eggplant and cut the banner side and finished it with a pearl. 

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

FabFri134 Lift Your Spirirts

I know it is light but I did wash the background water color paper
with Soft Sky ink and my aqua painter.  It looks darker in person.
I then stamped the Night of Navy on the Powder Pink and 
So Saffron card stocks and cut them out with the matching dies.
I also stamped the clouds in Soft Sky on Whisper White
and used the matching dies to cut.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set called Lift Me Up
in Night of Navy before layering on the Soft Sky card stock and then
the Night of Navy base.
I thought these colors went well together and glad I grabbed these balloons because 
I have not used them in forever.
