CTS255 Beautiful Friend




I just got the new Beautiful Peacock set free with the SAB
promotion going on now thru March 31st.  
I decided I wanted to use the baby wipe technique when inking this one up.
It fell perfect for this sketch from casethissketch.blogspot.com 
I placed two baby wipes together in a clear case and then used several 
drops of re inker from Wisteria Wonder and Wild Wasabi to use as an ink pad.
I stamped the feathers with my new ink pad and then the body 
in Elegant Eggplant. I used a circle die to cut it out.
I stamped the leave flourishes with the new ink pad on the background.
I stamped the sentiment from the set in the bottom in Eggplant.
I then layered the background on Wisteria Wonder and then an Eggplant base.
I placed an Eggplant strip along the bottom and then finished it 
off with rhinestones. 

Hope you can play along, too.
Thanks for stopping by!

TTTC031 Floral Heart Just For You!



I picked the first column for this challenge- Pink, Doily, Sequins.
Now doilies are not something I grab often
so I wanted to use it for this challenge but I needed to head 
over to my friend Peggy Noe's blog for inspiration--she is the queen of doilies! 
 Prettypapercards.com is Peggy's blog. 
This is also her created challenge this week
over at tictactoechallenge.com 
I stated with a piece of water color paper that I washed with 
Powder Pink and then I stamped on another 
piece of water color paper the floral heart from 
Heart Happiness set. 
I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and water colored it with 
my aqua painter in Berry Burst, Powder pink and Pear Pizzazz.
I cut it out with the Sweet and Sassy framelits dies. 
I cut a delicate white doily in half and placed on either side of the panel
layered with Powder Pink card stock and layered it all on a Berry Burst base.
I stamped the Just For You sentiment on Whisper White card stock 
from Sure Do Love You set in Berry Burst and cut it apart.
I added sequins from Fancy Frost(retired) and Metallic sequins packs
to finish it off. 

Play along and thanks for stopping by!

FMS320 Happy Sweet Soiree Birthday!




I had colored the cake with my Stampin Blends markers about a week ago
and used the matching die cut but had not placed on a project yet.
This was the perfect sketch for it!  
I used a base of Powder Pink cut 4 1/4"square. 
I cut the piece of Sweet Soiree DSP an 1/4" smaller.
I took a white oval I had on my desk and hang it a little over the DSP and cut it off.
I placed my blended cake from the Cake Soiree set along with leaves from the 
matching dies.  Love the Berry Burst bow on the top of the cake.
I finished it off with the Powder Pink label from 
Petals & More thinlits dies stamped in Berry Burst
with a half of a sentiment from Cake Soiree.
  I used my Berry marker to ink up just the part I wanted to stamp. 
All I had to do was add the pearls to the 
sentiment and the bow and it is a beautiful birthday card!

GDP121 Amazing Colors




Head over to global-design-project.com foe this amazing color 
combo and play along!
I did some casing from a card in the SU! demo 
magazine where I can show off this SAB set called
Amazing You and the matching dies called Celebrate You.
I started with a 5" square base of Crumb Cake then added a Bermuda Bay
banner which I ran through with the Hexagon emboss folder.
Before I ran the paper through the folder, I inked up 
the emboss folder with Bermuda Bay ink.
I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock with the 
Lots of Labels die. I stamped it with Peekaboo Peach
ink and the sun spray stamp top and turned it over and did again.
I stamped the base with the flower in Sweet Sugarplum ink.
I punched out the leaves in Peekaboo Peach with the leaf punch.
I layered the Amazing die in Sweet Sugarplum card stock.
I finished it off rhinestones for bling. 

I hope you have a wonderful day
 and thanks for stopping by!

PP376 To Smile In Colors




I started this color challenge with Eastern Palace DSP
of dots in Dapper Denim and Tranquil Tide. I layered it on
a Very Vanilla base then cut another piece of vanilla
and stamped some circle and a cute little fan in the middle.
I stamped the sentiment from this same set Eastern Beauty in
Tranquil Tide and layered it up with the Lemon Lime Twist
and then a Dapper Denim Eastern Medallions thinlits dies.
The challenge said plus another color but I just added a little gold 
from the Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers. 

Hope you can play along this week over at thepaperplayers.blogspot.com

Thank You Beautiful Day!


I used my Stampin Blends with the bloom from 
Beautiful Day but this time I colored it in Pumpkin Pie.
 Not one of my fav colors so I used do not use it much.
I colored the leaves Old Olive and the center of the bloom with the Ivory blend.
I hand snipped it out to pop up on the Brusho Background. 
I then decided it needed the Moss Green Brusho Crystal Color background. 
I used the water color paper and sprinkled my crystals on before 
sprayed lots of water and watching them run. 
I stamped a sentiment from a sale-a-bration set called Heartfelt Blooms.
I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black on Old Olive card stock and 
cut it out with a die from Petals & More thinlits dies.
  I see myself using that die a lot! 

I hope you enjoy your day!

CTS254 Happy Valentine's Day!




I sat and thought about the sketch for a long time.
I kept thinking floral but when I decided to think about other
shapes I then grabbed my new Heart Happiness set and went to town!
I love hearts...always have!  Love the new set called Heart Happiness
because it is all hearts and several sized plus prints. 
My favorite one is the striped water colored large one.
I used Calypso Coral, Powder Pink, and Rich Razzleberry inks. 
Added some gold foil hearts for bling.
I cut the label die in Powder Pink and stamped with the same color ink
with some background hearts. I layered the hearts on after placing on the 
Razzleberry card base.
I added the white 1/4" organza ribbon bow plus the sentiment
with the label die from Petals & More thinlits dies.
The sentiment is from a retired set called Good Greetings.
I kept it for this set because it had the sentiment in it.
I also love the script, too.

I hope you can play along with the sketch this week at
