Mother's Day

A beautiful Mother's Day pocket card made with the Oh So Succulent Bundle.  Look close a the Mint Macaron Mini Treat Bag and you will see a sponged "love" background.  I had the negative scrap left on my stamp table so I used it as a stencil to lightly roll on some ink.  Cute don't ya think?

Window Box Feature

How about a quick post for today?  This card has a super easy feature and it's one of the pieces from the Window Box Thinlits.  That thinlit set is moving to the top three of my favorites.  I love the box it makes and the possibilities are super huge of what you can do with all the bits and pieces--and a background is just one of them.
A scrap piece of SAB Glimmer Paper makes for a super cute dimensional butterfly.  And twine...what would I do without twine?  It's kind of like lipgloss.  It's a finishing touch that is sweet :0)

#HSS262 Copper and Kraft

It's a subtle but a rich color combo to mix Kraft with Copper Foil and I love it.  I have used a few framelit sets to complete this card for our latest sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I used the Fiesta Time Framelits for the garland and banners and the Party Pop Up Thinlits for the greeting.

#TGIF103

Watercolor wash background makes for a super fun challenge at TGIF.  Check out our latest #TGIF103 challenge and then get to creating something to share--go for it!
With blues being such a popular hue this season I grabbed my Dapper Denim Classic Ink Pad and got to work on a quirky card for a friend!

Taking Liberty #HSS261

I have taken liberty to expand on our latest color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments #HSS261.  To me if the color palette includes Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Smokey Slate then that opens up the deeper versions of those hues like Watermelon Wonder and Bermuda Bay.
I have used the Cool Treats stamp set, Tasty Treats DSP, and the Frozen Treats Framelits to pull this card together.  It's been a long time since I have used the Hello You Thinlits, so I dusted them off I cut a "hello" from the SAB Glimmer Paper.

Monday Montage Easter Baggies

Check out these Easter Bags that I have ready for a cute group of girls.  I had so much filling the Bunny Buddy bags from the March Paper Pumpkin kit and the Egg Carton Boxes that I thought I would share them for our Monday Montage Hop. 
I started with the bags from the kit and still had way too many Easter treats left that I concocted a way to pack more goodies into each package.  In a cello bag, from Stampin' Up! of course, I tucked in a bit of crinkle paper, an Egg Carton Box stuffed with candies, and then the filled bunny muslin bag.

Creation Station Showers to Flowers

Welcome, welcome to our "Nurture and Nature, From Showers to Flowers" Creation Station monthly Blog Hop!  You may have landed here from Dena Rekow's blog where she shares super cool projects, or from my sweet-sweat friend Julie Beltramo's blog, or you may have started with my blog.  In any case do check out the entire blog hop and peruse our latest theme perfectly timed for April.
As I set out to create with this theme in mind I realized how ENORMOUS and how great the possibilities were.  So great that I didn't know where to start.  As a stamper it's easy to create flower cards as I have floral images galore, so I focused in on the word nurture. 
I thought Friendly Wishes and Vertical Garden were perfect stamp sets for our nurturing element of the theme.  The Birds and Blooms Thinlits and Flowering Flourishes were obvious picks for the nature half of the theme.

#TGIF101

It's March Madness which makes for an "anything goes" challenge at #TGIF101.  In my mind the perfect bundle for awesome themed challenge is the Birthday Blast stamp set and Star Blast Thinlets.
For this card and gift box pair I have included some of the Cool Treats DSP with Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, and Soft Sky.  I also thought it would be fun to show the Star Blast Thinlets on a card front and in SD as a box topper.  These Thinlets are super SUPER cool and I'm totally happy to have them in my stash of goodies.

#TGIF100 Celebrate With Us

We are #TGIF100 challenges strong!!!  Join us for our 100th Celebration Challenge spotlighting our founding team member the amazing Mercedes Weber!
Mercedes is a totally amazing paper craft designer and she inspires me each time I see her blog and Facebook posts.  I especially love when she posts about her family and how her daughters love to paper craft too. 

When I think of Mercedes style I often think of centering the focal point of the card to a right justification.  She has had several cards lately where she has included splashes of Watermelon Wonder and she always plays with layers that create great style and visual depth.

HSS #260

It's a new challenge day over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  This is a totally cute one.  Just be inspired and create whatever comes to mind.
I had some fun playing with the Happy Celebrations stamp set and Celebrations Duo TIEFs.  First I embossed then I stamped the splatter image over and over.
Each time I inked up my stamp I spritzed it with water which gives a cool blended look.  Once I finished with the Dapper Denim, and it was dry, I stamped the "happy" shadow image with Whisper White.  For the shimmer I used Heat and Stick to adhere Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.
