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!

Thanks for stopping by.

Choose Happiness

The color challenge today is Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Melon Mambo and the dessert option is Vellum.  I had dessert!

The Vellum is curling a bit, but this was a fun card and I hope you love the results as much as I do.

My stamping is from the "Choose Happiness",  "Something Lacy" and "And Many More" using Melon Mambo ink.

I embossed down the side using Delicate Designs, added a Ribbon and done.

Petite Petals ~ Gorgeous Grunge

Fun colors today for the color challenge on split coast stampers!

Hello Honey...Blackberry Bliss...Very Vanilla

I used VersaMark with clear embossing powder on the flowers.  Could not pick it up with the camera.  But they are shiny. 
I am loving the new Hello Honey ribbon.  Looks like a delightful gold on some cards.
Our dessert today was to use splatters on our card and this is the reason for the fun splatters on my card.
No sentiment...I will probably use this for a birthday card at a later date.
Thanks for stopping by...
