Hello - TFC #91

Hello everyone. Here is your mid-month reminder about the current challenge going on over at The Flower Challenge blog.


Here is another card that I created for the current challenge.

This Altenew flower stamp is colored with Olo markers and fussy cut-out. The little hello stamp is also from Altenew. I matched the satin ribbon colors with the flowers by coloring with the same Olo markers onto white ribbon.  The square dot die is embossed into the base panel instead of cutting it out.

Happy Anniversary

Hello. Playing in the Simon Says Stamp Romance/Wedding/Anniversary challenge today.  I made this clean and simple anniversary card using Sizzix dies from Tim Holtz.


I found a man and a woman among the layers from Idea-ology and popped them behind the yellow vellum to create that old-time look. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things. I also stacked up the main layer using foam tape for added dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!

Time to relax

Hi everyone,
I'm sharing a card I created for my chiropractor and his wife for their retirement. 


The stamps are from Hero Arts and stamped in Versafine ink. I ink-blended the background with Tumbled glass distress oxide ink and latte ink from Simon Says Stamp. The clouds are done using the cloud stencil from A Color Life.  To get the shadows under the swing and palm trees, I used a detail blending brush from Waffleflower and a darker shade of brown ink. Really happy with how the shadows turned out. Used the dot stitched die from Jillian Vance designs to cut the scene out and matted it with black cardstock. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone.  The Paper Players sketch challenge intrigued me, so decided to play with it today. This also goes well with the feminine challenge over at Simon Says Stamp.


The flower stamp is from Penny Black called blooming. I watercolored them using Mei Liang watercolors, then cut them out using square nesting dies. I did use a marker to darken in the centers. The flower that's in the circle is fussy cut and popped up using foam dimensional tape. The small happy birthday sentiment is from Jaded Blossom. 

Thanks for stopping by.

So very happy for you

Hello. I'm playing in a few challenges with this clean and simple card today.


The flower dies are from Papertrey, Inc. I cut them out of white cardstock then ink blended over them using SSS pawsitively saturated ink in cheeky and blush.  White buttons are used for the centers of the flowers and I had to tie them with twine to get a cute bow for the centers on each.

The sentiment is from The Ton. The dot outline die is from a blueprints die collection from MFT stamps. Tiny dew drops from Memory Box finish this off.

Adding this to the following challenges.
CAS of Friday - Spring

Congrats - SSC333

Hello and welcome to another challenge over at Sunday Stamps.  Here is what I made using the sketch or inspiration color prompt photo.


I used the colors as a jumping-off point on the stencil from My Favorite Things. I masked off the sentiment panel using mint tape so that I could stamp the sentiment from Studio Calico.
