Happy Monday!



Hello and Happy Monday to you!

Melissa shows us some fun watercoloring with inks. 
The card below follows Melissa's technique

The card above is the one I used Melissa’s Technique 


To make my notecards I used the Papertrey Ink - Tag Sale: Quilted Die I just place folded paper below the cut edge and you get this sweet noted card . I wanted the stitched edge to show, so I cut the center piece just a bit under 3 1/4 th.   The stitched edge even shows up on the inside!
 Of course my idea came from this darling Make It Market Kit: Don’t Forget to Write


Since my granddaughter will be coming over soon I made this second quick, notecard to add to the set with cut and watercolored blooms I already had.

Hope you enjoy your day!

Pick Your Drink!



Hi, again! Happy May Day! We have a new challenge , all you need to do is use a die 
and at least one Serendipity Stamps product.

We are blessed with an amazing lemon and lime tree , we always have some on the tree. All our drinks are made with fresh lemon or limes. My husband make the best Lemon Drop Martini’s and Margaritas .... I make the best lemonade.

We have a new guest... as sweet as can be, Carol Mayne Just Me C



Not a great picture, sorry! This is how I made my shaker.. with fun foam then placed the vellum on top.

I heat embossed my It’s Five O'Clock using Zing (leaf) embossing powder,
  patterned paper, from Papertrey Ink and the stitched border from Pretty Pink Posh. I added glass beads inside this shaker, I wish you could hear how nice the sound of the shaker is.


I always loved this summer lemonade stamp! I used the Little Critters Dies for the inside of my fun and fast shaker card, slog with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and some beads that I had. I got the Shake it self adhesive pouches from Serendipity Stamps but I think they sold out. 

Thanks for the visit!

Pretty in Pink Challenge




Hello and welcome to the new challenge over at the Poppystamps blog, Pretty In Pink!


I used Hero Arts( pink to red) Ombre Ink.


I made this card a while ago using this sweet little stitched elephant and Mayfield Corner Die , then blended some pink ink onto my paper, went over with the same color ink on top of the butterfly stencil. I layered my sentiment with two layers. 
Hope you find some time to play along , you have a chance to win a Poppystamps die!

Happy May Day to you!

Coffee With Friends




Photo taken by : Lindsey Thank you!

Welcome to the 12 Kits of Occasions, March post! 
 The very talented   Tracey is our host for this month and she sent this wonderful coffee kit, can you smell it! 
I loved the papers and colors. I sat down to get started and before I knew it , I had 5 cards!

Amy Tsuruta is our guest this month! Welcome Amy!

I used my Poppystamps: Pinpoint Main Street Tags for the card above.

I colored the beads and added some Glossy Accents .


I wanted to make the old cars the focal point on this shaker, I covered them up just a bit. 
 After reading the package  of the Shakeit window, I realized it comes with peal and stick already on it.  
I love those things, I bought mine form Serendipity Stamps. 
If sold out you can get them from Impression Obsession Stamps.


I think I like this one best!
 The complete list of supplies and Designers will be HERE on the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog. 
Please stop by and be amazed by the rest of the Design Team. 

Thank you and God Bless!

Pot Full of Utensils!



 Susan created this adorable gnome tag! I don’t own any gnomes but I should.
 So I went with this chef,  seemed like a good substitute! Right!



Hello! For my tag,  I used Susan’s colors , bricks and a pot full of cooking utensils instead of flowers. 
 I added some  Glossy Accents to the pot and utensils to give it a bit of added texture and because I like it:)

Hope to see you play along and fun with it like I did!

Thank you for the visit and comments if you decide to leave one.

Congratulations






Hello! I had a bit of time before we left town , to make a simple card for the hop. 
Nothing fancy ... I used the colors and circles.


I bought some... Shakeit Shaker Card Pouches.
Sure makes for fast and easy shaker cards, the beads and Wood Sequins Combo move so easily. 
I found the perfect circle for the shakers any of the 
 Then I just glued the top to the shaker pouch.


I can’t wait to see the amazing cards you all made. I blended my inks on each balloon so a mix of colors. 

My husband and I took a few days off and went to Sequoia National Park,
it was gorgeous and we had the best time! Very cold but that is perfect for the hikes we went on. 
We both enjoy the cold and we even got snow!

With Thannks





Tracey McNeely is the Muse for this week with this beautiful card!


Hello! I was inspired by Tracey’s , beautiful bloom and colors!
My stamping technique was inspired from the amazing video (link below) by Yana Smakula on Wplus9 blog.
Love this set so much, I woke up at 2am to make this card then had to wait for the sun to come up.
Each flower is stamped in one color with a bit of white on top
then stamped in the same color again. 

Hope you have a blessed weekend!
