Rejoicing With You

Hello again! This is my second post for today.
While I still had the Beautiful Bouquet Dahlia stamp by WPlus9 sitting on my craft table I went ahead and created another card using the emboss resist technique. For this one I sponged Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn on to a die cut panel by Simon Says Stamp. I chose a sentiment from the Bold and Beautiful stamp and coordinating die set by PTI. I added sequins as a finishing touch.
Thanks for taking time to visit!

happy anniversary

Hello and thanks for dropping by!

I created a card today featuring the Beautiful Bouquet Dahlia stamp by WPlus9. I randomly stamped and heat embossed it in several places to fill up my stitched die cut panel by Simon Says stamp. I then sponged it with Shabby Shutters, Picked Raspberry and Tumbled Glass distress inks. A sentiment from Garden Grace by PTI was added as well as several clear rhinestones.

Morning friends!
Just posting a quick and easy card that I made earlier today featuring this mini set by Altenew that I received as a free gift with a order that was placed several months ago. I completely forgot I had it and thought I should make a card with it before it expires at the end of the year. I also stamped an image from Super Stripes by PTI that was masked so that only the ends were inked.
Thanks for dropping by and have a terrific day!!

My Hero

Hello! The current challenge at Less is More is to include Saints, Dragons or Heroes.
I dusted off this cute older rubber image by Stampendous and stamped it onto a background that was sponged with distress inks. I created the sentiment using a wood stamper and a 25 pt. font set by JustRight. The stitched front panel is a wafer die by Simon Says Stamp.
I kept my card CAS with lots of white space. That seems to be my style these days.
Thanks for taking the time to drop by. I really appreciate it.

A Note of Thanks


Hello my dear blogging friends!
I completely forgot it was Papertrey's monthly blog hop, and for good reason too. My son is getting married this coming Saturday and to top it off they are expecting a little one in early November. This will be their second child. Their son will turn two in May. I am so excited to be a grandma again!!
With little time to think and craft I created this card featuring Vintage Linens and Bold and Beautiful Sentiments. I was inspired by the colors in this month's  inspiration photo pictured below this post.
Thanks for dropping by and have a terrific day!

For my card today I stamped images from Winter Penguin and a sentiment from Rustic Wreath, both sets by Papertrey Ink. Stitched die cut panel by Simon Says Stamp.

A Note of thanks

Hello! Amy is hosting this week's PTI MIM Challenge and she's sharing tips on how to create the look of water colored brush lettering with stamped sentiments.
I stamped images from the newly released set Super Succulents in various shades of green onto a stitched cut panel by Simon Says Stamp. I chose a sentiment and coordinating die from Bold and Beautiful, another new release.
Amy made this technique look easy. I had a few problems and it looked way too messy. I was a bit shaky and I think if I used a larger sentiment the letters would of looked better. After several tries I decided just to watercolor the top part of the sentiment and call it a day.
Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks For being So Sweet

Hello and welcome!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. The temps here are in the low 80's and hopefully we are all done with the cold and snow.
Today I created a card for the current Altenew Challenge  From Places Abroad – Thailand. Below is this months inspiration photo.


Here is my take featuring Way To Sweet.
My panel was heat embossing and sponged with distress inks. The sentiment was also heat embossed onto a thin strip of gold cardstock.
Thank you all for stopping by. Your comments are greatly appreciated.

One Layer Simplicity Challenge- OLS26: As You Wish April

Time To Celebrate

Recently everyone I know is having a birthday. It seems my cards fly out the door as soon as I make them. But that's OK, birthday cards are one of my favorite type of card to create.
For this one, I used an image from the set Dot Spot and a Happy Birthday sentiment by Papertrey Ink. The other images are from the SOA Young At Heart Collection by Catherine Pooler. 
Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

Birthday Card

Hey there! Are you enjoying your weekend? It's been pretty cold in my part of the country. There were snowflakes in the air yesterday and the guy down the street from us was mowing his lawn. No kidding!
Today's card again features Catherine Pooler's SOA Young At Heart Collection. I'm stocking up on birthday cards. It seems that most of the people I know have birthdays coming up in the next few months. Good to have on hand. I hate last minute stamping.
Thanks for stopping by
