Steeped In Friendship


I made this card as i was trying to come up with a class card for August.
I decided to do a different arrangement and die for the middle.
But I like this one especially the designer paper. 
I layered the Tea Room DSP on a piece of Very Vanilla and then
a Calypso Coral base. I really like this DSP.
It gives a vintage feel to all projects!
I cut a large Vanilla circle and stamped the 
sentiment in Coastal Cabana. 
I also stamped the tea cup in same color but on Coral paper.
I stamped the swag in Crushed Curry and cut all with 
Spot Of Tea dies.
I finished the card off with a pearl on the cup and a 
bit of gold and vanilla twine.
Sweet card!!

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

Beautiful Day


Love the new Gorgeous Grape color!  
I layered a piece of it on a white base. 
I then cut the large floral die from Springtime Impressions dies
in white and placed for the background.  The two Grape flowers are 
also cut from same die set.  I stamped the sentiment from 
Love What You Do set in Grape on white stitched oval. 
I added the flowers along with pearls to the oval and finished
it off with the lovely Grape striped ribbon. 
Beautiful dies!
Hope you have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

CTS282 Animal Friends

CTS282


I really like to use two different prints of DSP on my card 
so really like this sketch challenge over at 
casethissketch.blogspot.com 
I picked my DSP prints from Animal Expedition DSP
and layered them on Lemon Lime Twist card stock
and then a Whisper White base. 
Another one of my images I blended this past weekend
with my Stampin Blends from the Animal Outings set.
I cut the image out along with some Call Me Clover
leaves with the matching dies.
I liked the way the card was without a sentiment added.
I can use it for many occasions.
Fun card and sketch!

FMS347 Happy Birthday Promenade!




While away last weekend, I took several stamped images
 and my Stampin' Blends to color.
 I colored this flower from the Beautiful Promenade set
 stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and blended with Calypso Coral.
I cut some leaves from the same dies I cut the flower. 
A little Old Olive and Mossy Meadow card stock.
I stamped the sentiment from Southern Serenade set in black
on a Very Vanilla oval. 
I love this DSP called Petal Promenade.
I layered it on Vanilla card stock and then a Coral base. 
I also added a few vellum leaves from a card kit plus a few 
Artisan pearls. 
Such a pretty suite of products!

Fabfri142 Be You




Upon seeing this unique color challenge (lots of green),
I could have though of leaves but I thought of these trees.
I stamped them with each green and cut them with matching dies.
I decided a little Powder pink water colored on the water color paper
for a background would be nice like a early eve light.
I started the Pink and then decided to go only half way so could add some 
Mint to look like grass.
I layered the water color paper on Tranquil Tide card 
stock and placed it on a piece of Mint textured DSP called
Tranquil Textures DSP. 
After adding to the white base, I stamped the sentiment
in Powder Pink and hand cut them to finish off.

Hope you enjoy this color challenge over at

My first use of this sweet suite!
When I saw the very lovely Connie Collins card, 
it was the floral paper that drew my in.

I needed to use it for this challenge and keep this sketch a bit, too.
I picked this print and then added the Melon Mambo 
card stock behind and then layered on a white base.
I cut the butterfly out with Melon card stock 
plus some punched circles in white and Mango Melody. 
I stamped the sentiment on white in Melon.

PP402 Greatest Leaves




I thought this was a cool challenge.
I decided to use the negative of the large leave in the 
Tropical dies. I cut two in the Shaded Spruce card stock.
I then added some Tropical Escape DSP behind before 
popping it on a white base.
Before adding on the base, I ran some Granny Apple 
Green 1/2" textured weave ribbon and tied it around.
I then stamped the sentiment in Spruce on white
and punched it with the Tailored Tag punch.
I added the glitter enamel dots in Granny the finish it off.

I will have to do it again with another set.

Lots Of Happy Card Kit



I finally worked this weekend on my card kit using water color 
pencils to color. I was hanging at a hotel while my daughter
had a conference and brought along some kits to play with
to past the time. 
I colored several of the pre-stamped images in the kit 
with water color pencils and blended with a blender pen.
I arranged the card a little different from the way they show in the kit.
But loved the coloring and how they turned out. 
The kit makes 20 cards in several sizes for 35.00.
It has 4 water colored pencils but I used several of my other colors. 
Hope you have a wonderful week
and thanks for stopping by!

Best Things In Life


While I had my white emboss powder out, 
I decided to emboss the flowers from Very Vintage.
It turned out a little more messy than I would like because I 
forgot that the Blueberry Bushel ink I stamped for the background
would still be a little wet when I applied the VersaMark 
and emboss powder to heat.
But I though it look even more vintage so I kept it.
I stamped the sentiment from the set  in Blueberry and the 
cut it with the Stitched Shapes circle and added the Lovely Lipstick
scallop circle behind. Finally some pearls finished it off.  

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

Thank You Stained Glass Green


The vellum piece her is a little longer than a regular card size.
I made a 6" by 4" card to accommodate the Graceful Glass vellum
that I colored with my Stampin Blends markers in Flirty Flamingo,
Mint Macaron, and Call Me Clover.
I layered it on the Call Me Clover long card base and stamped the 
sentiment from Painted Glass on the bottom in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I just added a few pearls to finish it off.

Hope your day is filled with blessing and thanks for stopping by!

Praying In Beautiful Promenade


I best part of this card is the DSP.  It was already cut for me
and I only had to stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Promenade set
in Memento Tuxedo Black and layering it on a piece of Petal Pink
cared stock.  I stamped the flower from the same set 
and colored it with my Petal Pink Stampin Blend marker. 
I used the matching dies called Beautiful Layers framelits dies
to cut the flower and then popped it on the bottom. 
Beautiful but so quick and easy!
The DSP called Petal Promenade is so beautiful. 
I love roses and the colors they chose make them look vintage. 
Love that, too!

Hope your day is beautiful.

I layered the vellum on a white square and then added some
black die cuts from the Stained Glass dies. 
 I cut two of them and layered on the 4 1/4" square
Pool Party base.
I stamped the sentiment from Varied Vases on white in memento Tuxedo Black
and added a few pearls and a larger pearl in the middle to finish it off.

Highland Heather Tea Time


Love this set and just had to do in my fav color -purple.
Here I pulled out the new Highland Heather
 and used a little Lemon Lime Twist. 
I used a Whisper White base and layered a piece of 
Highland Heather card stock on before placing a piece of 
white ran through with the Tufted embossing folder.
I love the quilted look on the embossing.
I stamped the tea cup and the flower and the swag in Heather
from Time For Tea and cut them out with the matching dies.
I used the solid matching stamp to color them 
in with Lemon Lime Twist. 
I cut the scallop circle from the Layering Circle framelits dies
and then heat embossed in white the sentiment from Time For Tea
and placed a pearlized doily behind.
I really like the shimmer the doily give on the white background.
A few pearls finished it off!

Poppy Roses

Still loving the Healing Hugs stamp set!
I stamped the rose several times in Poppy Parade on Very Vanilla
card stock and then layered it on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist
and a Poppy Parade base.
I stamped the sentiment in the same color and cut it with the 
label die from Lakeside framelits dies. 
Some pearls made it really cute.
I also added a half window die in Lemon Lime from Stained Glass 
dies with some of the die punched out.  It kind of looks like a doily.
It is good to have a get well card in the stash.

Highland Heather Stained Glass


I colored the lovely square of Graceful Glass vellum with some new 
Stampin Blends markers-Granny Apple Green,
Highland Heather, and Pineapple Punch.
I layered it on a white card stock square.
I wanted to just lay it on the Highland Heather
base but it needed something else behind.
I cut the half circle die from Stained Glass thinlits dies
in black card stock twice and layered behind for a cool effect.
I grabbed a sentiment from Sea of textures stamp set
to add the bottom. 
 I finished it off with a purple enamel dot to the center.

Love the purple!

Hello Lovely Flowers


Don't you love the Ruffled embossing folder!?!
I stamped the vase, flowers, and sentiment with the Varied Vases set

Lovely Lipstick two step stamp for the flowers. 
I cut the stitched oval with the Stitched Shapes dies and then 
the scallop oval with Lovely Lipstick card stock with the Layering Ovals dies.
I love the ruffled embossing folder especially in the blue.

Love Fresh Fig and Soft Sea Foam together!
I layered some Very Vanilla on my Fig base and then added 
the Soft Sea Foam stamped with both Fig and Sea Foam inks
with the lovely Very Vintage stamp set.
I added the Fig circle and then stamped the notched square
stamp in Fig on Very Vanilla plus the sentiment. I hand snipped the

Love this card!  I started with the flower.
I stamped it in Fresh Fig and then stamped the inside in 
Blushing Bride (two step stamping). I stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow
on Whisper White. I cut them with the matching does called 
Beautiful Layers dies. I cut a few more leaves in Mossy Meadow card stock.
I used a Mossy Meadow base and then cut my DSP called 
Petal Promenade DSP at an angle.  I then cut a stitched square
in half and stamped the sentiment on it in Fig ink. 
I put some adhesive on it and slipped it down so it looks
 like it is in a pocket!

Amanda Turns 23


I wanted a sweet and special card for my daughter's 23rd birthday 
today and I though since she loves animals, she would love some 
Animal Expedition suite.
I took my layout from my friend and Pretty Pal,
Stesha Bloodhart over at stampinhoot.com
She did a wonderful card in April with this same set.

I first pulled the white base and the DSP called 
Animal Expedition with this giraffe like print.
I added some Call Me Clover to stand out from the neutral color.
I stamped the animals and did lots of coloring with my Stampin Blends
markers and then cut them with the matching dies.
I used the sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set
in Call Me Clover on a white banner.
I finished it off with a little bling-Basic adhesive-backed
 sequins in Sahara Sand.

GDP146 Thanks A Bunch




I pulled this set called Wood Words out when I saw the 
sketch over at global-design-project.com
I stamped the background with the roses in Poppy parade ink
and layered it on a Poppy base.
I then cut the Wood Textures DSP and placed some
 Night of Navy card stock behind it.
I used the Night of Navy gingham ribbon
 and bow around before place on background.
I stamped the sentiment and one rooster in Navy
 and then two more roosters in Poppy. 
I cut the roosters with the matching dies 
and punched the sentiment out with the 1" circle punch.
I added a 1 1/4" scallop circle in Poppy under the sentiment to finish it off.

I decided to break out my Animal Outing bundle and matching
DSP called Animal Expedition.
I stamped the rhino with his bird friend in Memento Tuxedo Black
and I colored the image with the Stampin Blends markers.
I used my matching dies to cut it out and piece on the Call Me Clover
I heat embossed with white embossing powder and the sentiment
from the stamp set. I layered these on a cut bird print from the DSP and some
Lemon Lime twist card stock before the Call Me Clover base.
To finish off, a little retired LLT striped ribbon under the sentiment strip.

Thinking Of You In Granny Apple Green


I love this bundle- Lilypad Lake set and Lakeside dies!
I decided I wanted to do white and Granny Apple Green together.
I cut the white three times with the waves die and layered it 
over the Granny card base.
I then stamped the lilypads and heron in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I colored the pads with markers in Granny Apple Green and 
Poppy Parade.  I put a little Sahara Sand on the heron.
I popped them up on the waves. I then stamped the sentiment
on Granny and heat embossed in white. 
I used one of the label dies in the set to cut it out.
It looks great but was fast and easy!
Hope you have a fab Monday!

FMS344 Thank You Tropical Chic




I cut a 4 1/4" square card in Granny Apple Green.
Then had to use the awesome Tropical Escape DSP with 
the Tropical Chic bundle.
I inked the large leaf in Lemon Lime Twist and then sponged
some Granny Apple Green ink on before stamping on white card stock.
I stamped the long leaf in Shaded Spruce on white and then the 
flowers in both Blushing Bride and Berry Burst.
  I cut them all with the matching dies. 
I stamped the sentiment in Spruce on white and cut the banner 
with the Triple banner punch. 
I layered the two different DSP- first the pink one and then
I cut the leaf one with two triangles. I like this sketch!

Thanks For Reaching Out In Balmy Blue


Harry has been hiding and I thought he needed to come around
in Balmy Blue today!
I stamped him in Balmy and cut him in with the matching die
like the other elements. 
I used Crumb Cake card stock along with Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig.
I stamped the sentiment from same set called Sea of Textures and cut it
in a stitched oval.  I placed a Tide circle behind and layered 
it on a Tailored tag punch. I used the wonderful
Tranquil Textures DSP-the strip kind of looks like bubbles.
The Balmy base finishes it off.
Hopefully Harry the Octopus will be back soon!

PP400 Celebrate Pennants!




I knew when I saw this challenge I wanted to use the 
Celebrate die from Celebrate You thinlits dies.
I pulled those and the Pick A Pennant set I have not used
since receiving free at Onstage in April.
I stamped the banners in Pineapple Punch ink.
I then stamped the designs for the banners in both 
Blueberry Bushel and Poppy Parade. 
I added some Poppy confetti from Picture Perfect Birthday 
around plus some rhinestones I colored with my Cherry Cobbler
Stampin Blend marker.
I cut the Celebrate in Blueberry card stock to add.
I layered the white on Blueberry and then a Poppy
base. 
Fun card!
