Loving the Mushrooms

With Dawn McVey
Dawns beautiful set of cards
Hi there and Happy Birthday to one of my granddaughters! (13 today)!
I love this new Forest Floor Autumn set from Papertrey Ink!
I almost didn't buy it, so glad I did as the dies sold out fast.
I think you can still get the stamps .

The card above is for MIM . I didn't have a Papertrey Ink background stamp  large enough so I used MFT : Bundles of Blossoms . I made the Just a Note card first and wanted to try the background  stamp on a second one.

The one above uses the dies and I have Glossy Accents on both. 
Thanks for the visit and you are so kind to take the time to comment, I know I am bad at that.
Can you tell I would like fall to come to CA!

So excited my : Tim Holtz tonic 194E glass media came today.

God Bless You

I have a bit of Glossy Accents on the trees and for the windows
Challenge #24 – Anything Goes

Hello! Hope you are all doing well!
We have been very busy with projects around the house. When we are not working on the house we are relaxing around the pool and enjoying our yard ( It's the simple things we love best) We always enjoy our time with family and friends.
Looking forward to cooler weather someday .....

I am so happy I finally got this  City Stacks   set I think it has so many possibilities. 
It was out of stock at Concord and 9th so 
I bought mine at Simon Says Stamps.
I colored this in with my Zig brush pens after I heat embossed.

Because it's a rubber stamp, the image comes out amazingly clear!

I stamped the image then heat embossed with gold. Colored in with my Zigbrush pens.
 I love coloring when I have already embossed ... helps me stay in the lines :) 
I very quickly was able to fussy cut the outer edge then put some foam behind it and added it to a watercolor paper.  This card makes me happy hope you like it too!

Hi friends!
As soon as I saw Melissa's gorgeous card I knew this was the one I wanted to try 
and recreate with the stamps I already had. 
:Leaf Prints Stamps and Dies from Papertrey Ink and Botanical Silhouettes. 
I cannot wait to get my hands on the new stamp
that Melissa used on her amazing card

           Create Along With Us: August 2018           

I was able to make a second card with the leftover scraps!

 This did take a bit of time to make without the new stamps but I am pretty happy with it!

Summer Thank You

With;Stephanie Gold

Hi there! Hope you are having a good week and I hope your weekend will be even better. 
This is my first time playing along with Papertrey Ink Transformation Tuesday. 
I took this past Christmas card design of mine and created a Summer card using the same design.

 I so love this Still Life Summer Kit from Papertrey Ink 
Any time I can I add Glossy Accents to my cards and a bit of shimmer pen.
I took the s off the Thanks die and stamped the word

 I made sure to create some mixed background textures,  so I could also enter thins in Make It Monday.

Thank you so much for the visit today!
