FMS324 For You With Sweet Soiree




I love all this paper and I want to hoard it and I want to 
use it all at the same time. 
I layered this piece of Sweet Soiree DSP on  Marina Mist
card stock and then on a thick Whisper White base.
I took a white oval and stamped the sentiment from Cake Soiree
in Berry Burst and then added the flowers and leaves from the 
Sweet Soiree embellishment kit.  The Marina Mist scallop trim and tassel
are from the same kit. Hidden back there is a strip of silver foil. 
It was a quick card esp since little stamping.

Hope you can play along with the 
sketch challenge this week over at freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com

GDP125 The Best Day




I decided I wanted to use the Happy Wishes SAB stamp set since I could 
use one of each of these colors for the sentiment. 
I then pulled out the Color Theory DSP and started layering with 
Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo card stock and
a thick Whisper White base.
When I thought about how the blue DSP looked 
like water, I remembered the chair from the Seasonal Layers 
thinlits dies so I cut it in the happy yellow.
A few rhinestones for bling finished it off.

Hope you can play along with the bright color 
challenge over at global-design-project.com this week.

PP380 Sending Hugs & Kisses To You




I could not believe the color combo today for 
thepaperplayers.blogspot.com
I colored the birdhouse image from Flying Home
about three weeks ago and never used it so there it sat on my desk.
I was playing around and colored it just red and brown.
So I had to do today was use a thick Whisper White base 
and layer a piece of Kraft card stock on it.  
I decided to give it some texture by stamping the splatter from 
Waterfront stamp set on before stamping the sentiment.
I used a sentiment from the Heartfelt Love Notes stamp set 
that came in January's Paper Pumpkin kit.
I layered some Tutti- Frutti DSP on the side and popped 
up the oval image.  I decided to finish it off with some white baker's twine.

Sweet card from someone to receive!
I hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by!

FF0001 Sending Lots Of Love




I choose to go with the sequins theme for this card;
 however, I did use a love theme, too.  
I started with the Powder Pink base and then a piece of same color for the background.
I ran the background card stock through the new Scattered Sequins emboss folder.
I then ran some Berry Burst 3/8" metallic edged ribbon around before adding
 the sentiment from Lots Of Love set stamped in Berry Burst on
a Whisper White oval. 
I used the lovely tutti frutti adhesive backed sequins in Berry Burst for more sequin bling.
I finished the card off with some Lemon Lime Twist leaves punched out.


I hope you can playalong with this fun new challenge over at

Have a wonderful week!

TTTC034 Kind Thoughts For You




I went across the middle row for this challenge:
Die Cut, Emboss, Floral
Just received this set and love the flowers.
I decided to water color them in Lemon Lime Twist
along with Garden Green.  I added a touch of Peekaboo Peach
to the center of each flower. I then cut the flowers out with the 
Layering Oval framelits dies.
 The flowers were stamped on water color paper in Memento Tuxedo Black. 
I stamped with the same ink on Very Vanilla for the sentiment from this same set 
called You're Inspiring. I added some pearls because pearls are always good!
I embossed the Lemon Lime Twist background
with the Layered Leaves emboss folder.
 I layered that on a piece of Garden Green card stock and then a thick
Very Vanilla base to finish it off.
I think it could be a sympathy card or thinking of you.

CTS258 Celebrate With Picture Perfect

CTS258


This set had just came in the mail so I had to play with it 
for this challenge.
I practiced for a while making this bows. They are a two step.
I stamped the first stamp in Pool Party and the second in Bermuda Bay.
I then stamped the sentiment from the same set called Perfect Picture Birthday
in Berry Burst ink.  I added some of the Lemon Lime Twist striped ribbon
I had also just received around the Whisper White card stock. 
I added some rhinestones for bling.  This set has some coordinating paper
called Picture Perfect Party DSP.  I used a piece paper with 
Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst arrows.  You can just see a little detail.
I layered it all on a thick Whisper White base.

Hope you can play along over at casethissketch.blogspot.com

Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!

FMS323 Heartfelt Thank You




As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to use a stamp
to make the four pieces instead of designer paper.
I looked through every set and finally thought this would be perfect.
I stamped the Heartfelt Blooms (SAB) set in both Flirty Flamingo and 
Lemon Lime Twist on Very Vanilla.
I then layered it on a piece of Basic Black card stock and 
ran a piece of my new Lemon lime Twist striped ribbon around.
I stamped a sentiment from the same set on a Very Vanilla strip
in Memento Tuxedo Black and adding some pearls.
I finished it off with a thick piece of Very Vanilla for the base.

Hope you can play along over at
