TTTC039 Whale, Hello There!

I went diagonal this week for the
I used my Message in a Bottle set and I love I got to use my whale!
This set has several puns but I have not used the whale yet.
I grabbed the Springtime foil DSP with the silver stripes for my metallic element.
I used some Night Of Navy twine and a Pool Party enamel shape
for my accents. I stamped the bottle in Smoky Slate ink and added the cork
in Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the water in Pool Party ink and the whale in Navy.
I added the water spout in Pool. I cut it all out with the Layering Oval 
framelits dies and added some Navy behind it. 
I stamped the sentiment (pun) in Navy on Whisper White 
and finished it with an enamel dot.

I hope you can play along this week!
Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!

FMS328 A Beachy Smile

I thought for some reason about using my clear block to stamp 
when I saw this sketch challenge over at
I inked my clear block C with Marina Mist ink and stamped 
on a piece of Very Vanilla. I added some sea grass from the High Tide set
in Sahara Sand ink. I then cut a wooden beach chair from the 
Wood Textures DSP using the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies.
I chose a sentiment from Colrful Seasons stamp set and used the Early
Espresso ink. I layered the background on a piece of Marina Mist.
Then placed it on a Early Espresso base.
I finished it off with some glitter enamel dots. 
I like the clean simple beachy feel.

Hope you can play along!

GDP129 Barn Door Blessings

I have this set called Barn Door out designing projects for a design team
 when I saw this color challenge.
  I knew I could make it work with this set and matching dies.
I started with a Soft Suede card base and layered a piece of Calypso Coral 
embossed with the Simple Stripes embossing folder for a siding look.
I stamped the door on Very Vanilla in Soft Suede and layered it on
a piece of Pear Pizzazz.  I stamped the wreath on vanilla with Pear ink
and cut it out with the matching die.  I stamped the wreath again in Coral
and used the die just for the flowers. 
I popped the wreath on the door and decided to make the sentiment hanging also.
I stamped the sentiment on vanila in Suede and punched it with the 
1 3/4" punch and the layered it with a another circle in Pear.
I stamped a hanging sign in Suede then cut the top hanging part for the sentiment
 and added a gold dot to look like a shiny nail.
I really like how it turned out!
Hope you can play along with the color challenge this week

PP384 Happy Pink Easter!

I pulled on two shades of pink- Powder Pink and Berry Burst!
I wanted to use the egg and bunny more from Hello Easter. 
I stamped the bunny in Soft Suede and hand snipped him.

in the Berry Burst on the Whisper White background.
I stamped the sentiment on Powder Pink in Berry and used my 
banner punch-retired. I then layered it over the Berry Burst ribbon. 
I layered the White on Powder Pink and then a Berry Burst base.
I finished it off with some bling on the flowers. 

Cute and pink!
