You're The Best!


Fun colors with Pineapple Punch,
Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green!
I cut the white square at 3 1/2" and stamped the 
Pineapple punch circle in the middle.
I then stamped the sentiment in Poppy from the Bouquet Blooms stamp set.
For the flowers, I stamped the whole set in Granny Apple and then 
stamped a few individual flowers in Poppy and placed over the green bunch.
I even added a glitter dot in same color. The twine is in 
Lemon Lime Twist from a kit.
I layered the square over some Tropical Escape DSP
 and white card stock before putting it all on a Poppy base. 
Sweet in these colors and I will have to try some others
 with this same layout.

Have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by!

FMS343 Just A Note With Blue Roses





Simple sketch for more roses from Healing Hugs!
Love this image!
I decided to go blue with Blueberry Bushel
 and then add Call Me Clover for leaves and sentiment.
I grabbed the sentiment from the set that comes with
the Soft Sayings card kit.
I will be showing some cards on Sunday I made with the kit.
I am so glad I bought the in color DSP pack.
The paper in Call Me Clover was perfect touch for the layout.
I then finished it off with pearls on the bottom.

GDP144 Gorgeous Vintage





I decided to pick up on a vintage feel with the paper and script.
I also grabbed my fav color-purple!  I just had to do it in Gorgeous Grape.
I stamped the flowers from Very Vintage stamp set
on white and layered with Grape card stock.
I then created my own DSP with a piece of Whisper White cut at
4" by 5 1/4" and then stamped with Grape and the lace doily looking stamp.
I stamped it full on with Grape and then went over it with out re inking
to give it some lighter shading.
I layered it all on a Grape base and the decided
I needed a sentiment on Grape card stock heat embossed
in White emboss powder.  I cut it out with my 1" circle punch.
I finish it up a added some white organza ribbon
behind for even more texture.
I love how it turned out.

PP399 Greatest Suite




Love this suite-the paper-the colors-the stamp set!
I grabbed a few prints from the Tropical Escape DSP pack.
Love both of them and then added some Shaded Spruce card stock
layered behind before placing on the white base.
I had the two leaves stamped from last week when I made several
while stamping and sponging.  These are inked in 
Lemon Lime Twist and then had some Granny Apple Green 
sponged on them before stamping and cutting out with dies.
I placed the leaves on a stitched Spruce square and then I stamped the 
sentiment in the same color on Blushing Bride card stock 
cut in the oval shape. I finished it off with some pearls on the square.

Hope you have a fun day and can play along with the sketch over at

FabFri140 Reason To Celebrate In Colors!




This sis a very bright card for the color combo challenge!
I think I love Pineapple the most but Blueberry Bushel is inching in!
I have been grabbing Lovely Lipstick a lot ,too!
I decided to use the butterfly from the Painted Glass set.
I stamped color on color for them and cut them with the 
matching dies called Stained Glass dies.
I also cut a half circle detailed die from the same set
with Lovely Lipstick paper but did not push out the pieces
so it looked embossed.
I placed the butterflies on a piece of White and then a piece of 
Blueberry.
I stamped the Pineapple background with a splatter stamp
from the Waterfront set for texture. I then stamped the 
sentiment in Blueberry from Painted Glass set.

I like the way it turned out.

CTS277 Cheers!

CTS277


This card is already on its way to my mom-she loves tea cups and pots!
I went clean and simple for this sketch which is clean and simple!
I started with the Tea Room DSP-which I think I will use like crazy!
I layered the print on a Coastal Cabana base.
I place a piece of Whisper White on top. I stamped the Cheers in 
Rich Razzleberry on the white and then stamped the cup in same color
on a piece of Petal Pink. I added a pearl to it before pooping it on.
I also cut from the same matching dies that I cut the cup, a piece
of scallop in Coastal card stock.

FF0010 Happy 4th Of July!




I made the background a few weeks back
 as I was playing with my Brusho Crystals but then laid it aside.
I saw this Independance Day challenge and pulled it over.
It looks like fireworks meets a big tidal wave!
I did sprinkle the Brusho on the water color paper and then 
sprayed it several times with water.
it takes about 15 mins to dry.
I layered it on Real Red and then Blueberry Bushel card stock.
I then cut the 4 out with my number dies in real red card stock.
I used the celebrate from Perennial Birthday.  
I used my Blueberry marker to get just this word
and stamped it on a piece of Whisper White.
I could have wrote the by the 4 but sending it to my mom and 
she will be cool with it..haha!

FMS342 Floral Friend




When i looked at this sketch, I thought of DSP for the layers on top.
I grabbed my new pack of Tea Room DSP and picked two print to
coordinate together.  Love these flowers! 
I then started looking for a sentiment to go across and 
I really liked this one for the script in the new set called
Beautiful Promenade. 
I stamped it on a Very Vanilla strip in Calypso Coral.
Before pacing the paper on the Coastal Cabana base, 
I wanted to stamp something for the background. 
I pulled out my new host called Very Vintage which will 
get a lot of use- love it!
I used the flower strip to stamp a background in Coastal
on the Coastal base.
I also noticed the bee in the same set and decided to try my hand
cutting it out. I am not a great snipper but it worked well for two.
I stamped them on Vanilla in Rich Razzleberry. 
I finished the card off with two pearls from the 
Share What You Love Artisan pearls in Razzleberry.

PP398 Good Day For A Tropical Escape




I knew I wanted to use the heron when I saw the bird challenge 
over at thepaperplayers.blogspot.com this week and 
of course pair it with the new Tropical Escape suite!
I stamped the bird from Lilypad Lake in Gray Granite on white card stock 
and cut him out with his matching die from Lakeside dies.
I then cut the Granny Apple Green card stock 3 3/4" by 5"
and then cut the leave square die out.  I layered some of the Tropical Escape
DSP behind it and then added it all onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.

CTS276 Follow Your Dreams




I love dream catchers so this was on my A list for the new catty!
Love the set and matching dies but the dream die is the best thing!
The script is perfect! This one is cut with Berry Burst card stock.

I decided to use several different pinks all together.
I layered the Berry Burst card stock on the white base and then add another 
white panel on top.
I cut the feathers in different pinks and arranged them around dream catcher
I stamped on white in Gray Granite and cut with the matching die.

Bermuda Bay Stained Glass Butterfly


This card I made a few weeks ago today and that night in class 
someone want to buy an anniversary card from me
but I did not have stamped with that sentiment but showed this card
I had just made and she stamped in inside and it worked out.
I say this to show it is good to make cards and not always throw a sentiment on it
so you can use for any occasion that pops up!
I started with coloring the vellum glass window here in Bermuda Bay
and Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends and then layering on 
Bermuda Bay square. I then stamped the butterfly on Whisper White
and colored with same markers.
I popped them all up on a piece of Whisper White ran through
the Hexagon embossing folder then layered on the Bermuda base.
I also cut two of the rectangle windows from the matching dies
set and placed them behind to look like one detailed banner behind.
I used some of my retired black rhinestones to finish it off.

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

Kindness Makes World Brighter


I decided I needed to make another beach scene.
More of a sunset again. I started with the Very Vanilla
card stock and layered my sand with the Crumb Cake ink
 and stamps from High Tide.
I stamped the water in Coastal Cabana and the setting sun
in Calypso Coral by using a post it note over the water.
I stamped the birds in Memento Tuxedo Black on the beach
and then sentiment in the same ink but from the Waterfront set.
Before I layered on the Coral base, I stamped some splatter from the 
Waterfront set in the same Coral color ink for some texture.

Very easy and quick card!
Hope your day is happy and thanks for stopping by!

Trees & Leaves Just For You


I stamped these trees in Tranquil Tide and cut them just to lay 
them aside for weeks. I decided they need to get off my desk and on a card!
I had stamped the one full on with the Tide ink and the other off once to make lighter.
I popped them up on a piece of Petal Pink cut with a Stitched Shapes square die and
the senitment stamped on it in Soft Suede from Rooted In Nature set.
I took my Soft Suede banner (yes, you are seeing more pieces left 
over from classes last week) and used the emboss leaves from the die set
to just emboss the banner. 
 This die set called Nature's Roots has several leaves you can emboss with and then
a die to cut them out if want.
I layered it all on a piece of the amazing paper called Nature's Poem DSP
and used some Tranquil Tide to layer then the Sahara Sand base.
I did run a piece of Nature's twine in Crumb Cake around the banner
and tied on a Leaves Trinket in silver to finish it off.

Hope you enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

Floral Birthday


My cutting of this beautiful Delightfully
Detailed laser-cut specialty paper was not great but i cut a little off a 
12 by 12 sheet to layer on my Fresh fig base.
I stamped the sentiment from Cake Soiree on a white 
Stitched Oval in Fig and then what to do?
I decided to add more flowers from the Cake Soiree set
stamped in Petal Pink and cut with matching dies.
I cut a flower die from 
same die set called Sweet Cake framelits and managed to keep it intacted
to pop up.  I added pearls to them then cut the leaves in Mint Macaron 
to finish it off.
I will have to play more with the special paper.  It is white 
on one side and Very Vanilla on the other so can coordinate with all things.
You can even color it if have the patience! haha

Wonderful Tree


I had some pieces of my tree card left over from classes last week
so I decided to use them in a little different way.  I first stamped the 
background with the wood piece stamp from Rooted in Nature
 in Sahara Sand on the Sahara Sand base. 
 I turned the banner to the side after running it through
the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. 
 I stamped the sentiment from same set in Soft Suede and the 
large tree in Mint Macaron.  I cut the tree with matching dies
called Nature's Roots framelits dies and placed it on the 
Petal pink stitched square.  I tied a Mint bow from the 
Nature's twine and added a copper leaf from the 
Leaves trinkets embellishments.
I like these colors together!
But I can't wait to use this set for amazing fall cards coming soon!

Lovely Sympathy


I keep grabbing Lovely Lipstick when I used this set and 
vellum but it is so pretty!
I cut a strip of vellum called Graceful Glass designer vellum.
I colored the the flowers with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin Blend marker
but it look so pink I used the Lipstick card stock to pair with it.
I also used the Old Olive and Pineapple Punch blends
and then layered it on a strip of Whisper white,
I cut a black detailed die from the matching dies called Stained Glass
to layer under. I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Glass set
in Memento Tuxedo Black to finish the card.

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Be Calm Heron


I have seen several people make scene using the heron in 
black so it looks like a shadow and I finally got around to making a scene, too!
I used my clear block D inked up in Calypso Coral to 
stamp the background.
I stamped the sentiment from the Lilypad Lake set in
Memento Tuxedo Black. 
I cut the heron and two of the grasses in black card stock 
with the Lakeside framelits dies.  
I layered the white on black and then Coral for a very quick card.

Beachy Thinking Of You


Yes, we should be on the beach when you are reading this.
We go to Sanibel Island every year and I am in love with the beach there.
This card I cased some from the new annual catty and used colors to look 
like sunset time. The Waterfront set makes it so easy to make this scene.
I started with the water using two stamps but both with Coastal Cabana ink.
I used a thin bit if the long land looking stamp to make a very thin sand land.
I stamped it and then tree trunks in Crumb Cake ink.
I stamped the palm tops in Granny Green Apple ink 
and cut them out for a little depth.
I stamped then in Pineapple Punch, Flirty Flamingo, and finally Pool Party
to make the sky.  The sun was stamped in Pineapple and then over it in Calypso Coral.
When I stamped over it, it did not seem to look round anymore but I like it!
I ran some linen thread aound with a bow and popped it up 
on a piece of Wood Textures DSP and layered it all on a Crumb Cake base.
 The sentiment is a fav from Colorful Seasons set stamped in Coral.

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

FMS340 Under The Sea One Of A Kind




When I saw this sketch, I knew what paper and suite I would use.
I think I will need to buy more of this designer paper called Tranquil Textures
since I am using so much of it in a short time period. 
I layered the DSP on some Tranquil Tide card stock and then the 
Soft Sea Foam base. I added a piece of Crumb Cake netting,
a Fresh Fig sand dollar along with a Mint Macaron one.
I also used the sea plant in Mint and Tide and all cut with the 
Under The Sea dies. I stamped the sentiment from
Sea OF Textures on a Sea Foam banner and then finished it off 
with a Mint twine bow.

I hope you are inspired today!

GDP141 Bloom With Happiness




What to do with this color challenge!
Pumpkin Pie is prob a least fav color of mine.
I decided I could do something with the vases from Varied Vases.
I pulled this DSP I still have a little of called Playful Palette.
I thought I could distract with the lovely black and white dots!
I stamped the shelf (not really straight I think) in Memento
Tuxedo Black and then the vases in Real Red,
Pumpkin Pie, and Rich Razzleberry.
I added the sentiment in Red underneath.
I also stamped the flowers in Granny Apple Green
and Real Red stamped off once.  
I corner rounded my papers and added a Real Red card stock strip 
between ran around with the new black cord.
I even manged a bow.  It is a little stiff.

FF0009 A Sea Of Blue




Lots happening here! Well, mostly Brusho which makes everything happening!
I used a piece of water color paper to sprinkle my Prussian Blue Brusho
Crystals on and spray with water.
It make a wonderful ocean water background for my friend
 Harry the Octopus stamped in the new color Balmy Blue.
I cut him out with the matching dies and layered a piece of net in white
to pop on the blue! I stamped the sentiment from this same
set called Sea Of Textures in Night of Navy on a white banner.
I layered the water color paper on Navy and then a white base.
Love all the texture!
This could be a father's day card.  I already have one ready for my dad
from last month's class.
These die cuts are so much fun!

PP396 Hello Animal Outing




I received this set called Animal Outing at Onstage in April.
 I have been waiting to order the matching dies to use it
but this challenge called for me to pull it out.
I stamped the kangaroo with the koala bear in Memento Tuxedo Black
on water color paper and water colored with my aqua painter 
the back ground in Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist.
I colored the kangaroo in Soft Suede, and Sahara Sand.
The bear is colored in Smoky Slate.
I stamped the hello from Thoughtful Banners
and thought I could send this to someone as just a note or
use the stamp "little ones" with the set inside for a baby card.
I layered a piece of Pool Party cut 
with the Layering Square dies in a scallop square.
I used a Lemon Lime Twist base layered with a piece
of Whisper White ran through the Big Shot with the 
Hexagon embossing folder layered on top.
I added some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon that just retired along 
with some of the same color in sequins which also just retired.

June Class Bags

I make or design something each month for my class
guest to carry their cards home and it was bag time this month.

I had planned a nautical theme for the bags this month
but did not find white or red like I planned.
I found black.  I thought no way but my daughter
said I could come up with something bright/colorful for them.
I turned to retiring DSP like Tutti-fruitti and Picture Perfect Party.
I cut the DSP at 4 1/2" by 6" and adhered it to the bags.
I then stamped a sentiment on white card stock and cut it out 
with the circle dies along with a Lemon Lime Twist stitched circle die.
I tied them on with either black or Bermuda Bay twine. 
I added some sequin to finish them off.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

CTS274 Be Happy




I started this card with the new in color DSP
Call Me Clover.  I like it but it is my least fav of the 
new in colors so I though I need to make a thoughtful
effort to use it-esp the paper!
I added it to a Very Vanilla base and also cut a vanilla
circle die cut. I stamped the tree from the new set
called Rooted In Nature in the Clover ink
and cut it with the matching die.
I stamped with the same ink the sentiment from the set
and hand snipped the vanilla strip.
I decided to run the thick Very Vanilla twine behind but 
it happen to do the shape. 
 I was trying for something else.
But I like the way it turned out.

Light You Shine In Blueberry


I decided my class needed to make another lighthouse scene
since it had been a year and almost a half ago we used this set.
I wanted to show off the new Blueberry Bushel in color
and it does look fab with the water here here.
The Very Vanilla base has a layer of Blueberry and then 
a layer of Crumb Cake then another piece of Vanilla.
I stamped the lighthouse in Blueberry and Crumb.  
I stamped the sand and weeds next in Crumb plus the birds at the top.
I Stamped several layers of the water over for depth. 
I also used a sentiment from the same set in Blueberry.
I finish it off with the Pineapple Punch sun.
There are so many sentiments you can used on a card like this
so i will have several out for my guest in class.
Hope you have a beautiful Monday and thanks for

Beautiful Day In Pool and Razzleberry



I cased a card my friend Brian King ( stampwithbrian.com)
 did several weeks back.  I changed the colors but I like the fold.
I cut the Pool Party Card stock like I would for a regular base 
at 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" and scored it at 4 1/4". 
I then cut all but 1 1/2" of the front flap. 
I then adhered a piece of Rich Razzleberry to the front and then the 
white card stock stamped with the new Love What You Do stamp set.
I stamped in Memento Black Tuxedo and then colored it with 
Rich Razzleberry Stampin Blends. 
Before I stamped the flower and sentiment, I did stamped the 
background watercolor stamp in Pool Party.
I added a another flower stem inside and colored it with the same blends.
I finished it off with some pearls on the front. 
Hope my class likes the card this week in class!

Have a lovely Sunday and thanks for stopping by!

Varied Vases In Heather and Lipstick


I love the new color Highland Heather!  Well, I love purple!
This purple will get used a lot!
I layered the piece of Heather on a white base 
after I ran it through the Big Shot with my 
Layered Leaves embossing folder. and added some 
new 1/8" grosgrain ribbon in Lovely Lipstick.
I stamped the vase from Varied Vases in Heather and the tulips in
Lovely Lipstick and used the matching Vase builder punch
 and popped them up with dimensionals.
I stamped the stems and leaves in Granny Apple Green
on the stitched white oval. 
I layered a scallop oval in Lipstick behind.
I stamped one of the lovely sentiment on the banner in lipstick. 

I really like how this third card for classes turned out!
Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
