DSC#286 Daisy Delight


Hello! I thought this week's challenge was right up my alley! Just looks like a Connie card! lol I decided that the only stamp set I owned that would work with this was the Daisy Delight set. It turned out even better than I hoped it would! Love it when that happens!!!

The card base is Grapefruit Grove, one of the new In Colors. This card was done with two step stamping. For the leaves I stamped off the Mint Macaron solid image once and then stamped the lined image with full strength ink. The same goes for the Grapefruit Grove flowers. The little Calypso Coral flowers were stamped full strength. The Thank you was stamped in another new color called Gray Granite - this is going to be a favorite of mine I think. I split my piece of Mint Macaron twine into thirds because I like the softer look, plus it's much easier to tie!! lol


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you got some great ideas from our Blog Hop.

Happy Father's Day

Hello! My Father's Day card this year is a little unconventional, but I love it! Hopefully the recipients will too.

Since this card was made before June 1st I used one of my favorite blues, Marina Mist, which has been retired. The stamp set I used to make the card is called Lilypad Lake. The sentiment is from the Tabs for Everything stamp set. Check it out...I used Linen thread and some sequins!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

DSC#285 Rooted In Nature


Hello! We have a wonderful color combination for this week's challenge. These three colors can be found in the Nature's Poem DSP which of course coordinates with the Rooted In Nature stamp set so I started with those and ended up with this...


It's a gift card holder! Just in time for Father's Day. I used the Envelope Punch Board and a 6" x 6" piece of DSP to make it. The Nature's Roots Framelits Dies and my Big Shot helped to cut out the tree and leaves.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed this week's blog hop.

DSC# Waterfront


Hello! This sketch challenge was perfect for the idea I had for this birthday card. I used the Waterfront stamp set and colors from the Neutrals Collection to make it.
Welcome back Mossy Meadow! I love this color and am happy they brought it back. The card base is my go to - Crumb Cake. I used Crumb Cake, Night of Navy and Mossy Meadow inks on Whisper White card stock.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed this week's blog hop and got some ideas for your next card.

Waterfront CASE

Hello! Sorry I haven't been posting too much lately...life seems to be getting in the way. Truthfully I meant to post this card over the weekend, but time just got away from me. We had a fun DOstamperSTARS online catalog kick off party on Saturday and one of the things we did was CASE a You Can Make It card from the 2018-2019 SU! catalog. I chose one from page 149 using the Waterfront stamp set. This is an idea that I would have never come up with on my own.

I used Mint Macaron ink for the trees, Blackberry Bliss for the sentiment and Crumb Cake for the speckles. The ribbon is Grapefruit Grove and is from the Nature's Twine pack. Love this twine, I actually split it into two pieces. It's easy to do and I like the look, plus you get double the twine!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello! Today is the big day...the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! catalog goes live! You can order all of your favorite new products around 1:00 Central time.


To take a look at the new catalog you can click on the image to the left or click here. Have fun! If you choose to order anything I would really appreciate it if you would choose me as your demonstrator. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Here's a card I made using a new stamp set called Animal Outing.
I got this set at our On Stage event a couple of months ago and today I am going to order the coordinating framelits! I can't wait.  Did you notice all the frames stamped onto the green layers? They were made using another new stamp set called Swirly Frames. I'm going to have to be sure and play with this set some more, the possibilities are endless!

Thanks for stopping by!

The suite is called Nature's Poem, how fitting for such beautiful products. The stamp set is called Rooted in Nature and the DSP is called Nature's Poem. I love this paper and check out those stamped images! Did I mention that there are coordinating framelits too? lol

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed today's project.
