Rose Wonder

We are to use Red, White and Black colors today.  Beautiful colors, but I was not thinking today and it took a bit for me to get my juices flowing!

I used red foil on the Rose Garden Die to cut this beautiful rose. Then cut another in Basic Black and filled it in.  Love the way it turned out!

Grateful Bunch ~ Kind & Caring Thoughts

The fun colors on SCS today are Pacific Point, Cucumber Crush and Sahara Sand.  For dessert (I opted out) "get well wishes".

All I could think of was some pretty blue flowers.  So I got out the new stamps and punch from the new occasions catalog and started stamping, punching and rolling with my stylus.
Lots of clean space and easy quick card.
Let me know what ya think!

Her first called Smorgasborders_4 is from way back!

Have a good Sunday!

Watercolor Wings

Been some time.  We have moved and finally able to get into my room and unpack and make a card.  Oh, I have missed it!!!

The featured stamper today have loads of wonderful cards.  Her first... was a delight as it's all Stampin' Up! as well.

I used In Colors as did she, but changed the theme and stamps as well as adding a butterfly and no flowers.  I could not find any ribbon so I used washi tape and pearls instead of a button.

Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Tip Top Taupe are my cardstock colors.  The butterfly is die cut with the Butterflies Thinlets Die. 

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by...

Now off to get started on swaps for Convention next week.
Hope I can find what I need!

Gorgeous Grunge ~ Lots of Thanks

Unique color today.

Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Daffodil Delight...with "thank you" for dessert.

My take on it is...drum roll please!

I do love this set, but don't use it often enough.  The sentiment is punched out using Artisan Punch.

Painted Flowers

Our color challenge colors are...

Pear Pizzazz, Blackberry Bliss and Pool Party.

It pretty much said flowers and that is what I went with.

I had a bit of fun stamping this one from the "Painted Flowers" polymer stamp set.

The bottom framing is created using the Edgelits Adorning Accents die. 

Our dessert option was to use something along the lines of antique brads, etc.  So I used trinkets brads (took the backs off).


Bloom with Hope

Here is my card for the featured stamper February 22, 2015.

The original can be checked out here.  "Inkspirations Colour Challenge #52 Happiness Shared ".

My colors are Strawberry Slush and Rich Razzleberry.  I also used some in color designer series paper. 

My cutouts are Flower Fair, Window Frame and  Deco Label Framelits.  I used a stylus to roll the flowers.

The stamps are from "Flower Patch" and "Bloom with Hope" sets.

Painted Petals

I used a fun new Stamp set from the Mini Catalog for the featured stamper today on SplitCoastStampers.

Not so sure I should have added the punched out flowers.

My colors are So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Whisper White. 

The flowers are from Petite Petals.

This card is a double open card.  You untie the ribbon and find a sentiment and can open the card and find another!
