Happy Birthday ~ Curtain Call Inspiration


Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge over on the  Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…


I don't have any hibiscus flowers in my stamp stash so I went with my old faithful...Rosie Posie! then I chose some patterned paper that mimicked the photos background. I wasn't sure which way to stamp the flowers, orange onto pink or pink onto orange so I tried both ways.  The card above is orange details on pink and this next one is pink details on orange.

Thank You Very Much ~ Curtain Call Inspiration


 Hello everyone! It's August 1st and time for a new challenge over on the  Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…




I got some new patterned paper last week and as I flipped through all of the pieces, I came to these ones that I thought would work perfectly for this challenge.  The "Thank You Very Much" seed card was cut from a bigger 12x12 piece.  This made this card come together lickity split!  Here's my second card...

Your Own Kind of Beautiful ~ Make it Monday


Hi everyone!  I've been in the studio off and on this week...playing, creating, and feeding my soul.  Today's two cards are for PTI's Make it Monday.  I was inspired by Laurie's glittery butterfly and choices of pink.  I used a glue pen and prisma glitter...haven't used that in awhile!  Needless to say there is glitter around the house now! HA!


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!

May All Your Wishes ~ PTI July Blog Hop


 Hello friends!  I'm back with my take for the PTI July Blog Hop.  This first card is actually the second card I made.  I wanted to make a real clean/neutral card for the hop.  This next one is actually the first one I made...not so clean/neutral because I was having fun with some new patterned paper :) I'm also updating my photo background...what do you think?


 There was a lot of stamping off to get the lighter shades for both cards.  I thought my scrap paper looked kind of cool so I thought I'd share!


 Here's the original inspiration photo from Nichole... thanks for stopping by!






stamps: Gran's Garden, Painted Petals (PTI), Everything Nice (Verve)

Spreading Light ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Reminder


 Hello everyone!  Just a friendly reminder that there's still time to play along with the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge "Surf's Up."


I had an extra lighthouse and some water coloured pieces left from my first card for this challenge so whipped together a second card...I love when I can use up lovely scraps!  Head over to the Curtain Call blog for more inspiration and then join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday ~ Make it Monday


Hi friends!  Today was my day in the studio to play with this week's PTI Make it Monday.  We were asked to make an embossed resist shadow sentiment.  I finally was able to purchase the Quilted Tag die set...it was always out of stock when I had an order ready, then once it was in stock, something in my cart would be out of stock.  I had to wait very patiently, but I have it now :)  I visited Dawn McVey's blog to come up with some colour combinations for her gorgeous Gran's Garden set.  She is a master of colour for sure :)  Thanks for stopping by :)

Happy Birthday


Hello friends!  I woke up early today to do a workout (P90X3) and finish this card I started yesterday for PTI's Create Along with Us.  I fell in love with Michelle's gorgeous card below...
 


 I used some OLD and new stamps to recreate the Michelle's layout...Background Basics - retro and Birthday Basics along with Gran's Garden.  I really love this colour combo :)  Thanks for stopping by!  Now it's coffee time!

Happy Birthday ~ Curtain Call Inspiration


Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge over on the  Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…





 The surf boards made me think of waves which made me think of PTI's Waves Coverplate.  I watered colourd some paper using 3 different blue Zig markers then cut out it out with the coverplate.  Then I cut another one out of white card stock and placed some watercoloured ones back in the white one.  My favourite part of this card? Guess!  Those birds! HA!  Seriously, everytime I stamp them, they just kick up the card a notch.  Cool :)

Verve July Release Day ~ Day 4


Welcome back to Day 4 of Verve's July Release Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! Three beautiful new sets and coordinating die sets just released and they're all available in the shop right now. To celebrate our new release, we're putting on another blog hop with a fabulous giveaway!

Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!

Oh, the day we get to use ANY set is hard for this Diva...which one?!  I wanted to make a bookmark with this darling sentiment so that's what I did.  I used 3 sentiments from Happiness Is and the word "coffee" from Always Time.  Then I added some of those darling flowers to the background with some fun sequins in the middle :)  I attached the bookmark using some non permanent dotto tape so the recipient can remove it and use it!

I just adore all the sentiments in this set...this one in particular! It reminds me of the country songs, "Jesus take the Wheel," "She Loves me Like Jesus Does," and "Me and God Love her."I picked out some more fun paper and added an extra sentiment banner because that little sentiment was begging to join the card! HA!  There's blended coffee in those cold coffee cups, just in case you were wondering!

Verve July Release ~ Day 2


Welcome back to Day 2 of Verve's July Release Spotlight Hops!  The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting our new release! Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online shop on Monday, July 10. And if you just can't wait, you can pre-order our July Release Collection at a 25% discount through July 9!

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Happiness Is stamp set and coordinating Happiness in a Cup Die Set.

Today's card is a special one for me...it's the one I gave the DH yesterday for our 10th Anniversary!  I used whites and greys with a splash of blue (the colour for tenth anniversaries).  When we answered the priest's questions during our vows, the answers were, "I have, I will, I do."  I thought it was most appropriate to add the "still" on the inside :)  I used an older set, Love Everlasting along with Everlasting Heart Die Set and the Heart Quartet Die to help make it extra special.
