Many Products Today

Muse Challenge #176 by Linda S
 Couldn’t wait to play along with my friend Linda !

I had to share these little house I made then filled with crystal beads for crafting inside. 

The tree in the background is from Concord & 9th Take A Bough Die
That was my first try and I will be making many in all colors.

I stamped MFT Fall Florals while I was at Joyce’s house, then fussy cut them out at home, I love that set and need to buy it! I layered it over  MFT Gingham Galore Paper Pack, the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Just Desserts Stamp 

Had the best time with  Joyce and Kim 
 yesterday, never enough time!
Kim made that blouse she is wearing!

Thanks for the visit, sorry it’s such a long post today. 
You should have seen it before I took stuff out:)

Still Playing Along with Stamp A Faire

Hello !I hope you are all having as much fun as I am
with all the amazing things we are learning from
the awesome Papertrey Ink Designers! 

I couldn’t wait to color block like Lexi!
 Family came over last minute and we all went swimming (very hot here)
when I went back in to finish my card I messed up, not a lot of time to make a new one. 
I cut the bad half off and ended up with this. I know only the bottom half is color blocked.

I had so much watching Kay’s very first video, and like most of you I hope it is the first of many!
 Kay you sound as sweet as you are. I made this early this morning and it came together very fast. 
I couldn’t resist using that gold liquid pen for my splatters. 

Take care and God bless you!

Stamp-A-Faire with Papertrey Ink

Hello and welcome to Papertrey Ink STAMI-A-Faire!
I will be keeping it short as I will be posting a lot of cards 
in the next few days.

I was going to post this earlier in the day but had to leave the house 
right before I was ready to finish this post......

Master Color Recipe Challenge

All the stamps, dies and inks are from Papertrey Ink 
I used the Deco Color liquid gold pen on the card above 
and a silver pen on the card below. 

 I kept mine just like Amy’s

I had so much fun creating this starry night, very much out of my comfort zone. 
Cant wait to give this one a try again when not so busy.

 My card below is for the Gilded Gold.
 I used my liquid gold pen  that I bought over a year ago. It works just like the gold in the  jar.
Love this stuff and no mess. Deco Color Premium-Prime.

Thanks for the visit , hope you don’t mind me posting a lot in the next few days.

Praise Him In This Storm

Melissa made some beautiful cards today on her MIM video by spiriting with water.

Hello dear friends! Busy week for me and then just not feeling like blogging. As I look at my card and the busy waves , I guess you could say thats kinda how my brain feels now and this past week.

I spritzed my stamp with a fine mist then stamped with my MISTI

Thank you for the visit today! 
Peace be with you and your families.

Creating Without the New Dies

Create Along With Us: July 2016 Papertrey Ink 

Amy’s House

Hi sweet friends!
I loved all the houses today! I chose the colors and design of Amy’s 
darling house, they are all over the top cute!
I can’t wait for the new die because it took forever to make my awning with the scalloped edge :)

I saw Kay’s house with the bush and these were cut already so I added them to my shop/house.

As you can see I tried to make my own awning with scallop border die and then cut and folded some strips for the roof. Cant wait to get that new set with awning!

Thank you for the visit today!

Little Notecard with String

with Amy. Amy has a fun video over at Papertrey Ink !

Hello! Back from a beautiful vacation. 
I have been nonstop busy, working on future projects. 
 I missed playing along with  Make It Monday. 

I had a minute last night to make a card for today. I already had the blooms stamped and embossed long ago.
As you can see, nothing fancy with my string.
 I made this 4x4 envelope with the envelope punch board.

Thanks for the visit and have a great day!

Just Add Water

Play Here
 We are so excited to announce that Carol Mayne  and Patti Kehl be apart of the Serendipity Stamps design team! I couldn’t be more excited to have these two kind and talented crafters join the team. 

Welcome ladies!
Hi friends!  We have a new challenge and a new Stamp of the Month at 50% off! Winner of the challenges has a chance to win $20 certificate to the Serendipity Stamps Store.

I created this card on a very hot smokey day.  Two fires on top of 109 + heat, those poor fireman!

I added some water to my paper then a swipe of my Zig pen and a bit more water. After it was dry I cut out my word dies. Each word die is layered 3 times. 

You know what I love about all these word dies.... the word is all connected even the dot for the i on the first word. No pieces to add on. 
 I’ve been away from my blog , family emergency before a vacation. One of my daughters appendix burst and she was in the worst pain! We dropped all plans  so that we could be by her side and then I spent a few days with her girls (my granddaughters) while Natalie was in the hospital. Thank God she is on the mend. After the surgery the Dr. came out and said that was NASTY!  Not what a mom wants to hear. 

This is our sweet granddaughter Bailey.
So easy spending time with them.
Not sure why the arm looks so large , lol!

50% off Stamp of the Month

Have a blessed day!
