Thank You in Song






They had some beautiful photos of flowers, some with birds (see site for the full picture). It was so vibrant so I came up with my version. I used PTI Floral Sketches stamps and dies pairing it with Songbirds. I used PTI musical note cover plate for the background. Hawaiian Shores, Hibiscus Burst and Autumn Rose Inks were used. To make the white flowers I just stamped the outlines of the flowers then die cut it. I sprayed the flowers and bird with Shimmer Mist / clear. I used Saffron Spice card stock to make my bird and a few flowers.
I hope this not to bright as I used so much color. I really loved the Floral Sketches set , everything stamped and matched so nicely.

Bunny Buddy

Simon Says Stamp
Wednesday Challenge
Use More Than One Die or Punch
Here is my card for this week. No stamping just dies. Sometime it just the way it is! I used some patterned paper that is from my stash, green gingham from Cosmo Cricket and the print from SEI/ Kitty's Place.
I die cut the edge from a Spellbinders A2  edger's die. The sentiment and Bunny from Poppy Stamps. I added a few star form stickers for the tail and the little  heart the bunny is holding. Just slightly popped up and still mail ready.

Here is my card for this challenge. I picked the noted hello die and paired with the Heart 2  Heart # 4 in the series(love those $5.00 sets!). Since the set had no cord I used the twigs from the Autumn Pumpkins. My sentiment is in Raspberry Fizz cardstock.

Better Together


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Cute
Looking for cuteness this week. I think the coffee cup and donuts, let alone this Pebbles  paper all qualify! The whole card club kit set from Feb at SSS was over the moon cute. Show casing a lot of things from Doodlebug, just cannot get enough. So from the kit was the cute coffee die.(which can be bought separately) I paper pieced the all the different colors.
 The doughnut is from My Favorite Things. I pulled an older stamp from Cosmo Cricket ( to go with the Valentines Theme) for the sentiment. I found some flowing hearts from "Oh Whale" set from Stampin Up to place all over the doughnut then put clear Wink of Stella on it. Hope you enjoy my cuteness:)

Castle Sisters





My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

Here is my take on this weeks challenge. I got bit inky with the castle. Started out with craft card stock and used a texture folder for the brick. Then distressed with TH Distress Ink: Walnut Stain. I did the towers darker than the background piece. I used the MFT Well Connected Alphabet stamps for the 'sisters' sentiment . The images are all colored in Copic then I put some clear wink of Stella to my little princess some glitter.
This is such a cute set and a lot fun to play with.
