Galvanized Harvest Blessings


I realized I have not used the Galvanized Metallic paper
I bought to use with the Tin Tile folder as part of this suite.
I placed the wood print on the white base from the Country Lane DSP.
I added the metallic paper ran through the Big Shot with the Tin Tile 
embossing folder.
I layered another print I cut in a strip across and then I added 
a little Cajun Craze card stock with a white banner
stamped in Early Espresso and the Country Home set.
There a little strip of chicken wire behind the Cajun card stock to 
finish it off.

Hope you enjoy your day!

CTS291 You're The Best!

CTS291


I do not use Bouquet Blooms enough.  Cute set and dies!
I grabbed it when i saws the circles for this sketch.
I stamped the top one in Crushed Curry, middle one in 
Mango Melody, and bottom in Calypso Coral. 
I added the sentiment in memento Tuxedo Black.
I layered the white background to the black card stock and 
then a Mango base.
I finished it off when some sequin I think in Petal Pink
 but they looked yellowish so on they went!

Hope you can play along over at casethissketch.blogspot.com

FMS356 Your Kindness




I stared at the cool sketch over at freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com
for a while til I thought of DSP as the three panels.
I grabbed the Country Lane DSP and layered them over a piece of white 
card stock with a strip of Old Olive behind.
I layered all those on a Old Olive base.
I cut the DSP at 1 1/2" by 4 3/4" pieces.
I then stamped the sentiment from the 
Painted harvest set in Blackberry Bliss on a stitched 
white oval.  I also punched a few Old Olive leaves.

I love the fall colors and the sketch.  Hope you can play along, too!

Fabulous Triangle Box



I made 5 of these for my friend giving them to friends
with lip gloss inside. 
The triangle box is from a post this summer over on Pootles.co.uk
Love how Sam comes up with the best boxes and with a video, 
it makes it so much easier to make and decorate. 
I needed to make her design a little longer and a bit thicker
for the lip glosses.
I used a piece of Bundle Of Love DSP which is 
retired from this spring. 
I cut the DSP at 6" by 7" 
I scored on the 6" side at 2", 2.75", 4.75", 5.5"
I scored on the 7" side at 1"
I cut up on the 7" side and fold it and made the box
which is open on top. 
I cut a piece of Very Vanilla 2" by 3" 
I score it in half then put one end in the 
scallop tag punch.
I ran some gold twine around and tied with bow.
It will make it easy to get in and then close again.
I stamped the Fabulous You from Thoughtful Banners 
set in Shaded Spruce on Very Vanilla and cut it
with a stitched oval.
I stamped the flowers in Blushing Bride and Berry Burst
from the Tropical Chic set and cut with matching dies.
I stamped the fat leaves in Granny Apple Green and sponged 
a little Shaded Spruce on them and cut with the dies.
I cut the long leaves in Shaded Spruce card stock.
I hope you can make some too!

GDP157 Simply The Best!




When I started this card I was not sure what my layout would be.
I love this color combo and have been using it for several months
and decided I wanted to do something different with the colors.
I went for the First Frost bundle by using a piece of water color paper
and adding some Grapefruit Grove ink washed over it.
I layered it over to the Mint Macaron base.
I decided to stamp three of the long stems in Mint on white card stock
and spread them out over the background.
I stamped several of the roses in Bliss on white card stock 
and added them over the stems
 plus I placed some twine bows on the bottom of the stems.
I cut them all out with the matching dies. 
I finished it off with the sentiment from Varied Vases
stamped in Bliss ink on a white banner.
Hope you can play along with the color challenge this week!

PP411 Grateful Heart




Fun sketch over at thepaperplayers.blogspot.com
this week.  I need to use DSP so went for 
these prints in the Country Lane DSP.
I added some burlap trim between them and then layered 
all on a piece of Blackberry Bliss card and then a white card base.
I stamped the sentiment from Falling For Leaves 
on the stitched white circle in Blackberry Bliss ink. 

Hope you can play along this week and thanks for stopping by!

FF0017 Golden Snowflakes

#festivefridaychallenge, #FF0017, Stampin Up, World Card Making Day, Washi Tape


I choose to do some washi tape but I buy it and never use it.
Mostly I forget about it.
I bought this washi tape last fall from the 2017 Holiday 
catalog called Year Of Cheer Specialty washi.  
I liked it for the gold, silver copper combo and I thought it
would work great on tags.  I think I used a little on tags.
I added the three of them to the bottom of the white background.
They gave me my idea for gold snowflakes which I heat embossed
in gold and same with the sentiment.
I stamped the snowflakes from the Beautiful Blizzard set
 and the sentiment from the Alpine Adventures set.
I added gold foil behind the background and layered it on the white base.
I added the gold foil circle to the sentiment and finished the card off
with the rhinestones on some of the snowflakes.

Happy World Card Making Day coming up soon and
go play along with the challenges at

Greatest Tropical Box



I wanted to show off a pizza box I colored and decorated
for the Ink Big Design Team this summer.
These boxes can be themed and go for any season.
I sprayed the one which comes white 
with some drops of Pineapple Punch ink in a spritzer
and rubbing alcohol. I layered some card stock
on top in Granny Apple Green and then a
leafy print from the Tropical Escape DSp.
I then used the square leaf die from the Tropical dies
cut in Shaded Spruce over the DSP. I added some 
linen thread and Pineapple Punch flowers
stamped on white
and cut with the matching dies. 
Finally, I popped on the sentiment from the Tropical Chic set
stamped in Granny Apple Green on white and cut with an oval die.

Hope you enjoy this box and thinking of what season 
you could design it for soon.

Have a wonderful day and thanks fort stopping by!

CTS290 Happy To My Day




I knew as soon as I saw the sketch I would use the 
detail scallop border from the Detailed Leaves dies.
I then picked three fall colors- Mossy Meadow, 
Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.
I layered them on a Crumb Cake background and then some 
Mossy Meadow behind and on a Very Vanilla base.
But a sat and struggled what to add next.
I finally picked a sentiment from Country Home and stamped it on a 
Very Vanilla stitched oval in Cajun and then 
stamped a few leaves from Falling For Leaves set.
I like how it finalllllly turned it!

FMS355 Hello Country Home




I started this fun sketch with picking my DSP.
I grabbed some cotton print from the Country Lane DSP.
I added it to Whisper White card stock and then a Mint Macaron base.
I also added the copper foil strip down which give it some bling.
I stamped the image and sentiment from Country Home on a thick
Whisper White stitched circle in Memento Tuxedo Black.
I colored the image with my Stampin Blends
 and layered a pearlized doily behind to finish it off.

I really like how this turned out 
which is already on the way to my mom!

GDP156 Winter Woods Thinking Of You

GDP156


I decided i wanted to use the quilted embossing folder
when this white space as I case Kerstin's card.
I then thought about this new bundle with the 
Winter Woods stamp set and the matching dies 
called In The Woods.
I stamped the tree in Mossy Meadow on white card stock
and cut it with the matching die.
I then inled up with my Cherry cobbler marker
just the phrase thinking of you to stamp 
on the white banner.  
I added a rhinestone I colored with my
 Cherry Cobbler Stampin Blend marker.
I cut the end to make the banner with a banner punch that is retired.
I ran the white background through the 
Big Shot with the Quilt Top embossing folder and 
layered it a piece of Mossy Meadow and then a white base.
Simple thinking of you card.

Fall Card Holders For Class




 Great open boxes from Sam Hammond at pootles.co.uk
I have made these before and this time they are perfect 
 for the retired fall paper and the retired Chocolate Chip card stock.
They hold all the cards and envelopes for my guest to carry
home their class cards this week.
I cut the dies from the Detailed Leaves dies 
in Chocolate Chip and retired Tangerine Tango on the fist box.
I used Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow for the second box. 
A rhinestone in the center finishes them off.

For box:
8.25 " by 11" piece of card stock

FabFri146 All The Best With First Frost




This was a no brainer! 
I thought when I saw the color challenge over at 
fabfridaystampinchallenge.blogspot.com this week 
that I must use the First Frost bundle!
I used a piece of water color paper for the background
water colored with Balmy Blue ink and my aqua painter. 
I layered it on a piece of Highland Heather card stock for the base.
I stamped the large rose in Gorgeous Grape
 and the two small ones in Highland Heather. 
I then stamped the two long stems in Tranquil Tide and all 
were cut with the matching Frosted Bouquet dies.
I also used the dies to cut a white and two Powder Pink filer stems.
The sentiment from the same set is stamped in Heather on a 
stitched white oval with a strip of Tranquil Tide trim behind.
A few pearls on the small roses finishes off the 
sweet bouquet kind of card!

Frosted Wishes


I made this same card a few weeks back but added a little to it 
for this 5th class card today.
Here is my first card:  I stamped it in Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow ink.



For the new card (first photo), I stamped in the same Merry Merlot and then 
Tranquil Tide.  I added the extra stems in white- all cut with the 
matching dies called Frosted Bouquet.
The sentiment is the same in Merlot ink and Merlot card stock behind.
I also ran the background through the Big Shot
with the Softly Falling embossing folder.
I also added the Tranquil Tide trim behind the sentiment for a little more color.
This sentiment is great for almost any occasion.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a beautiful day!

Wonderful Leaves


I wanted to mostly use these leaves for the fourth card 
for classes this week from the Rooted In Nature set.
I was having a hard time on how I wanted to display them.
I then choose to case a little from a card I saw on Pinterest
by Satomi Wellard in Japan/Australia.  
I used the color combo of Blackberry Bliss, 
Grapefruit Grove and Soft Suede.
I stamped these randomly on the white background
like they were falling and then stamped two that i cut 
out with the matching dies.  I made it look like I tied
them on with the Blackberry Bliss twine and bow.
I added the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss from the same set
and layered it on the Blackberry Bliss card base.
I finished it off with some gold pearls.
Sometimes simple it best!

Harvest Of Thanks Leaves


Love this card!  Hope my class next week does, too!
I did a little casing from the Holiday catty for the first card class card.
I cut the detailed leaves in Rich Razzleberry and Curry Crushed.
I stamped the Pumpkin Pie leave in VersaMark 
 and used the copper emboss powder to heat emboss. 
I tied a little copper trim on the that leave
 and popped them on dimensionals on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock

On the Pumpkin pie base, I stamped the leaf image on the edges. 
I stamped the sentiment on white in Rich Razzleberry

Baby Wipe Technique Leaves


I was thinking of the baby wipe technique this weekend so 
I pulled the Colorful Seasons set and grabbed the two solid leaves stamps.
I made a stamp pad by layering a few wipes and added 3 colors
with my reinkers.-Fresh Fig, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.
I stamped the leaves on the white background. 
I like how some of the leaves were not perfect..as leaves usually are.
I added the background to a piece of Crushed Curry card stock.
I added it to the Fresh Fig base and then a piece of Fig across the card.
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white using the wipe pad.
Love how it turned out.

I cut the detailed leaves in three colors and the solid in Crumb Cake.
I added some splatter to the white background with the 
Timeless Textures set in three of colors.

#festivefridaychallenge, #FF0016, Stampin Up, US Air Force Birthday, Clouds


I decided to go for both challenges with the clouds and the birthday sentiment.
Yes, my clouds are very textured!
I used the silver emboss paste with the clouds mask to add
them on a piece of Balmy Blue card stock.
I layered them on a Balmy Blue base.
I added the sentiment from Lift Me Up set
 and the small balloon is from the set as well with Blueberry Bushel ink.
I used the matching dies from the Up & Away thinlits dies.

CTS288 Thinking Of You Falling Leaf

CTS288


I first grabbed the Country Lane DSP 
and this Blackberry Bliss pattern and added it to 
a piece of white card stock then a Blackberry base.
I then had no idea what I wanted to do so sat staring for a long time.
I then added the white and Blackberry cards to the side
 after some corner rounding.
  I then thought I would add the detailed leaf but did not know
what color i would do with the white and Blackberry.
I then decided to try the white solid die
 and then a Blackberry detailed die. And BAM!- I had what I did 
not know I wanted. I grabbed my Colorful Seasons set
 and heat embossed the sentiment in white emboss powder to finish it off.
Oh, wait I did add a pearl to really finish it off.

Falling For Leaves


I stamped the sentiment on the white stitched circle
in Blackberry bliss and the flower stem in Grapefruit Groove.
I cut the stems out in Bliss card stock and did not poke all the holes out.
I cut the detailed border in Grapefruit card stock and added some 
burlap trim to it. All layered on the Crumb Cake base.
A few rhinestone in bliss finished off the card.
I like the natural look with pops of fall like colors.

FMS353 Frosted Floral Blooms




This paper is gorgeous and it was hard to cut into it!
I want to hoard it like crazy!
I started with a white base cut at 5" square and then 
a piece of Tranquil Tide before layering on the DSP
called Frosted Floral. 
I stamped the rose in Merry Merlot and then sponged some
Blushing Bride ink over it with a sponge dauber.
I cut it with the matching die and cut some filler in white also.
I added those to the end of the sentiment which was stamped 
in Tranquil Tide from the Perennial Birthday set.

Thinking Of You Twice



I try different ideas as I am designing my cards for card classes.
 Here I made two different cards before I decided I was going another direction. 
The top card has a Blackberry Bliss base and I stamped the large and small
leaves from Rooted In Nature over the white background in 
both Bliss and Grapefruit Groove inks. 
I cut a large Oval from the Layering Oval dies and then stamped the 
sentiment in Bliss and cut it with the Stitched Season label die.
I added a Grapefruit twine and bow to finish it off. 

Second card I used the same color base and same for the sentiment.
I stamped a leave around the Bliss base in Bliss ink
 but it does not show up here.
I stamped the small leaves in Bliss, the stems in mint Macaron,
and the fan leaves in Grapefruit Groove.
I added it all on a piece of Sahara Sand with two corners rounded.
I finished it off with a Bliss twine bow.
I like both cards and these color combos
but I was not satisfied with either for class.
You can see the card I do have planned for class in about a week
and a half from now.

Hope you enjoy your day!

GDP154 Blessings With The Country Lane Suite


Love this print as a background!
I choose this cotton print for my background which 
I layered on a white base.
I turned the sketch to the side and layered the wood print 
panel to the right.
Both prints from the Country Lane DSP.
I stamped the can and florals from the Country Home 
set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I colored them with my Stampin Blends markers
and cut out with the Stitched Seasons label die.
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of Whisper White 
in Early Espresso ink and snipped the ends.
I also ran some white twine down the side panel and 
added a double bow.
I finished it off with three rhinestones I colored 
with my Cajun Craze Stampin Blend marker 
to look like the banner element in the sketch.
I must remember to use this sketch either direction again.

PP408 Be You Harry



For a smaller card for the challenge, I grabbed one of 
my kit cards from the Soft Saying card kit with the gray stripes.
It is a note card size and I added a large Night of Navy circle
to layer Harry The Octopus on with sentiments.
I inked Harry up from the Sea Of Textures set in Bermuda Bay ink
 and then dabbed some Pacific Point ink on 
 before stamping him on white card stock.
I cut him out with the matching die from Under The Sea dies.
I stamped each of the sentiments from Rooted In Nature
in Pacific Point ink on white card stock and hand snipped them out.
Fast and cut card for any awesome person in your life!

I wanted to use this Buffalo Check background stamp 
when I saw this sketch challenge.  I love that I can make my own 
DSP in any color at any time.
I inked up the stamp in Blackberry Bliss and laid my white card stock
over it and rubbed the image on...gets best results this way!
I layered it on a piece of Bliss card stock for the base.
I added the Crumb Cake banner and a sentiment from the  
County Home stamp set in Bliss. 
I cut it out with a stitched circle
 and added a Bliss twine bow to finish it off.
