Penned and Painted Using Flirty Flamingo Paired with Pear Pizzazz

Have you seen this stamp set, yet?  LOVE IT...
Penned and Painted, page 143, in the new catalog...
The sentiment (from the Occasions catalog that just retired) ...Sunburst Sayings...can be found on page 99 in the annual...
When the new In Colors were revealed at OnStage in Salt Lake City, I LIKED them, but I'm really getting into them, now!!  They're just different enough that they stand well on their own and they also pair really well with our base colors.
Each time I use a new color it becomes my favorite.  The Peekaboo Peach was my first fave, and now Flirty Flamingo has moved into first place;)
The way our inks work we can easily get 5-6 shades from one ink pad by stamping off, which is exactly what I did here, with this pretty flower.
You should check these sets out for yourself!  The little ladybug is too cute!  Let me know what you think and send me pix of your projects:)  Have a great day.

Baby Boys are Made with Love

One of the best things about stamping, other than it brings people together, is that whenever your husband needs a card, you can say, ABSOLUTELY!!  His coworker had her little boy and I was on it.  Using the Soft Sky as my main color and Smoky Slate as my accent color I found my Made with Love (pg 59) stamp set, my Whisper White card stock and and began to create.  Knowing I wanted to add dimension to this cute little card, I used the coordinating Baby's First framelits, to easily cut the different pieces for my card.  I popped a piece of the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper up so I could hang the booties and onesie and then added some additional interest with my retired alphabet embossing folder (so sad this had to go away:()
I watercolored the little bunny and fussy cut him, to put in the buggy, and then used some silver cord to connect my booties.
This project was simple, it was really fun to make, and I bet it's a one-of-a-kind that the new mommy will look at time and time again as she thumbs through her little boy's baby book over the years.
Have fun stamping today and I hope to hear from you soon.  Share your comments below:)

Love You Lots, Pop of Pink and Hearts

I don't normally "preorder" the Host Sets, because I know that I will get them in the months to come with my parties, but this one (Love You Lots) was a definite MUST for my ever-growing collection of "keeper" stamps.   I love all the stamps in this set and the frog was the perfect image for what I had in my mind for my first card using this set.  The DSP is Pop of Pink and the bow is tied from the new White Thick Baker's Twine.  I used my Aqua Painter and new Emerald Envy Ink Pad to color the little frog and popped him up with a Dimensional.  I did fussy cut him, but I don't mind doing that every now and then, although I have to say, with all of the framelits and thinlits that are available, my sizzix machine makes this a "few and far between" event.

The card on the right is the "make and take" we did at my New Catalog Reveal a couple of weeks ago.  The strip of white, although not adequately photographed, is actually our Diamonds Glimmer Paper and it was just the right POP that this card needed to take it to the next level.  The punch I used was our returning Sweetheart Punch and the embossing folder is Happy Heart.

If you like what you see, leave me a comment, or two.  For whatever reason, I haven't seen comments to my posts, so I've gone in and tweaked some things in my settings to help make it easier on you all to post.  Hopefully that will help.  Thanks!

Have a great Friday and a wonderful, safe and amazing weekend!!

Painter's Palette and Pool Party Birthday

As evidenced by the previous cards I made with this stamp set, you can tell it has quickly moved to one of my top faves!

This dimensional card, stamped with Painter's Palette, was really fun to make!  This was my daughter's (Shannon) birthday card and I was so pleased with how it came out, I couldn't stop looking at it/shaking it.  I'm not kidding!  The new Squares Framelits made this super simple and the blingy sequins finished it off just right:)  The colors I used were Pool Party and Smoky Slate and to get the dimension I adhered the window sheet first to the card stock and then used our new Dimensional Strips to seal the frame to the easel.  Easy Peasy!!!!  If you haven't done it yet, order yours today!!  Just go to my catalog and click the picture.  That'll take you to my website where you can find this stamp, these framelits and everything you need to make this project.  Any questions?  Just message me. Have a groovy day<3

Painters Palette and New In Colors are Perfect...

Are you loving the new CATALOG?  What?  You haven't seen it yet?  Noooooo!!!  Get there, now, to check it out and order your new products and get started enjoying the smiles you'll see on your friends faces as they see what you're up to, what you're making and how EASY it is to do what you do!!

The colors I used on these cards are from our 2015-2017 In Color collection.  Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum are so beautiful!  And look at the Ruched Ribbon, above! This ribbon is so popular that on the very day this catalog went live people gobbled it up like it was candy!!  The suite associated with all of the things I used on these cards is called 'Playful Palette'.  It fits its name to a T and if you want to view this collection, go to page 118 in this Idea Book...AKA Catalog...and see all there is to play with!

And did you see the little bow clip?  Isn't it so cute?!  You can see those in the Accessories section of the catalog, on page 177.

My Dad's Birthday

This card was so much fun to make!  I received this stamp from the OnStage Local I attended in Salt Lake City, UT in April.  Sara Douglass showcased some of her creations using this set which was so inspiring and
Isaiah's Card
ultimately led to my design for my dad's (83rd) birthday card.  I also used this set for my grandson, Isaiah's, birthday card.

I really like the colors on this card...Calypso Coral and Night of Navy.  Together with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the stars, not to mention the Silver Sequin Trim and the Wink of Stella Glitter Pen, everything really pops!

Have fun creating with this set and show me what you come up with!  I'd love to see YOUR creations!!
Have an awesome Friday:)
