FabFri119 Beachy In Black/White/Gold

Playing along with the sketch challenge this week over at
I thought of many sets for this sketch but since I was already
 heat embossing for yesterday's card, I decided to make another 
gold beachy tree and leave it gold without coloring it.
I stamped first the shells background from
Magical Mermaid in Sahara Sand 
and then stamped the tree in VersaMark on Whisper White.
I heat embossed with gold emboss powder.
I cut a strip of Basic Black card stock and heat embossed 
in Winter White the sentiment.
I love the black/white plaid from Merry Little Christmas DSP
 and layered it on a piece of think Whisper White for the base.
I added a half foil snowflake behind and layered my sentiment banner
on top. It needed a little gold too so I place a gold metallic shape on it.
Sweet card in black/white/gold!
The DSP, foil snowflakes and the stamp set called Beachy Little Christmas
will all be in the new 2017 Holiday catalog which starts on Septmeber 1st!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed day!

PP358 Beachy Little Christmas

I was looking around at my stamps trying to decide
what to color in for the challenge.
I then saw this saw in corner of my eye and remembered
someone stamping it in gold or cooper and coloring in the ornaments.
The Beachy Little Christmas set will be in the new 2017 Holiday catalog
 available to order on Sept. 1st!
I decided to try by stamping the tree on a Whisper White
oval in VersaMark ink and then heat embossing in gold emboss powder.
I used my aqua painter to color the shells, seahorses and such.
I heat embossed the sentiment on Pool Party and since I had a half of a new foil
snowflakes laying there...I put it behind for more gold.  Snowflakes will also be
in the new 2017 Holiday catalog.
I hope you can play along today

Gather Together With Pick A Pumpkin

I was happy to play with the new bundle Pick A Pumpkin.
I love pumpkins and soon will be decorating my house
 with my large collection of pumpkins and gourds.
I first cut a piece of Very Vanilla and used my aqua
painter to water color Soft Sky.
I then stamped several pumpkins in three colors of orange
 and one I rocked in two colors.  I also stamped some 
leaves in Old Olive and cut them with the matching dies.
I also cut some cute curls and leaves in Old Olive card stock.
This set dies not have sentiments so I used one that fit well from
Painted Harvest stamped in Cajun Craze.

I shall have more pumpkins for you soon!
Thanks for stopping by!

For You With So Many Shells

This card is a result of many unused scraps on my desk
from projects started.
I had stamped the Burlap background in Soft Suede for another project
but found it too dark for it so I laid this piece aside. I had cut the 
Calypso Coral stitched circle for another project, but then decided on another color.
So I did not let these go to waste.  I layered the background on 
Calypso Coral card stock and then a Soft Suede base.
I I stamped the shell in Coral lightly by stamping off once with the ink.
I then stamped the sentiment over it in Soft Suede and punched it with the 1 1/2"
circle punch.
I added some Natural trim in gold because I had a bow also laying unused on my desk.

Hope you have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping by!

TTTC011 Colorful Leaves

I decided to use the bottom row of leaf, free, splatter.
I choose purple as my free space and then pulled this color
combo of Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango.  You know I love purple!
I cut the leaves from Seasonal Layers thinlits dies in these colors.
I stamped the sentiment from the matching stamp set 
called colorful Seasons.
I used ink splatter also in these colors from Awesomely Artistic.
Simple card but love the colors and leaves!
Hope you can play along with Peggy's tic tac challenge this week!
Head over to to play.

You Are Amazing And Lovely

I have not cut into the Whole Lot Of Lovely DSP.
I have been hoarding it.  I love this pattern with the flowering vine.
I decided to show case it.  I grabbed a fav sentiemnt
from the All Things Thanks set.
I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White and 
cut it out with the Layering Circles dies as well as a Calypso Coral.
I ran some Coral thick twine with a piece of mini gold 
sequins around the DSP and the Whisper White piece before layering 
on the Basic Black base.
Simple with a little sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by and have a Fab Friday!

Happy 100th GDP

Guess Who I Picked?
Celebration Time, Marbled, Stampin' Up!, Brian King

I love Brian's card and decided to case the layout and colors!
I started with the Marbled background stamped in Powder Pink ink.
I layered it up but not as perfect as Brian does.
I have a Sahara Sand base and layered Whisper White
and then Calypso Coral behind the Marbled piece.
I then stamped several shells on Whisper White.
The large shell and small one are in Sahara Sand and Powder Pink.
I stamped the other shell just in Calypso Coral.
I placed them on a Whisper White circle.
For the Seas The Day sentiment banner, I stamped it in
Calypso  Coral and then distressed the paper with my finger nail.
The card turned out so soft!

Hope you can case a designer over at

Hope you have a wonderful day and
thanks for stopping by!
