Good day

Hello stampers!  Stopping by to spend some time with you and share my card for today.  I stepped way out of my comfort zone for this one!  I used colors I wouldn't normally choose and paired colors together that I wouldn't normally.  I also did something I rarely, rarely do...I left a ton of unoccupied white space!  *Gasp!*  That normally makes my eye twitch a little (ok, a lot!).  I must be growing as a person or I for real was thinking outside of the box today! LOL

Here is the card I made:

See!  Look at those colors!!  I am a wild woman!   Although, I love all of them separately I would't normally pair them together (even though they look pretty dang snazzy together!)  I must admit it worked out well!

Lots going on here!  I stamped, I punched, I layered! I used card stock, DSP and Glimmer paper!  Did I mention wild woman?! LOL

I made the flowers using the Pansy Punch and layered them with Dimensionals.  The leaves are from Eclectic Layers and the butterfly is from the Sunshine Wishes dies.  I used Stiched Frametlits for my Whisper White piece. (I just love the stitched edge!) and Layering Ovals for the background scalloped oval.  

Here are the goodies that I used to make this card:

Feel free to click on any of them to bee line straight to my on line store.  If you have any questions, please send me an email or leave me a comment!  I love, love, love hearing from you guys!

I will be back soonest with more to share!  Until then enjoy your day!  Go and stamp a'll be glad you did!  Big hug!

Live with passion!

Hello there!  Hope your week is off to a good start!  I have a fun card to share with you today! I wandered around my stamp room for a while this morning before I decided what I wanted to make!  Here is what I came up with:

I was feeling a bright and happy green, so I pulled out the Fresh Florals DP pack.  The bright colors in the pack are so pretty!  I pulled out a Lemon Lime Twist piece of paper and the rest of the card just kind of came together!

I used lots of layers today!  I think it just makes for a really interesting card visually.  I used the Sparkle EF to emboss the background.

I added the beautiful butterfly cut from the Bold Butterfly Framelits.  I also added a silver circle (cut in half) tucked under the sentiment.  I used the Beautiful You stamp set for the sentiment.  I layered three circles behind the sentiment using Pear Pizzazz card stock, Whisper White card stock and Lemon Lime Twist DSP.  I added polka-dots to the largest circle using a white gel pen.

I absolutely adore this butterfly!  It is just so elegant and detailed.

Here are all of the products I used to make my card today:

Ok, I hate to post and run, but I have oodles left to do today!  I will be back soonest though with lots more to share!  Have a wonderful day!

Without you...

Hey there!  Hope that you had a nice weekend!  Monday rolls around too quickly if you ask me!  I have been on the go all day today, but do have a card to share with you.  I have found that the days that I take some time to hang out in my stamp room and do a little bit of creating I am simply happier.  There is just something so good for you about creating! Here is the little card that I made today:

I kept things simple today.  Only a couple of layers and not a lot of frills and fluff. I stamped the sentiment from Blooms and Wishes and then stamped all of the flowers and leaves.  

I did stamp a second flower and fussy cut it.  I adhered it on top of the first one using a dimensional.  I added one strip of copper trim (that stuff is so much fun!) and then tied a second smaller piece to it.  I spread out the ends for a fun tattered look. 

I like the warm feel of this color combo.  I used Very Vanilla, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Soft Suede.  Feels a bit like the beginning of Fall to me!

I added gold highlights by using the 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch and adding a tiny center to each flower and three little sparks of gold on the large flower.  Everything is better with a tiny sparkle or two to it!  

Here are all of the goodies I used to make my card today:

My mind has been on all the folks in Texas fighting with weather, wind and water today.  I always feel so helpless when something like this happens.  My heart sincerely goes out to everyone there. 

As always, I appreciate you stopping by!  I will be back soonest with more to share!  Have a good day friends!
