CASEing my card

Hey there stampers!

I hope you all have been doing well. Sorry I haven’t been sharing much lately but I’ve been super busy. I’ve been getting ready to open a booth here in the Houston area (Champions Forest). The company is called The Painted Tree Boutiques and I’m really excited….and nervous. So I’ve been making lots of stuff to fill my space up. They moved the grand opening from Nov. 1st to the first of the year now, which gives me a little more time….which I will need, lol 😉

Anyways, so I was definitely pleasantly surprised to be contacted by SplitCoast Stampers telling me that I was chosen as this weeks’s Featured Stamper! How fun and exciting!!! So I decided to join in the fun and make a card cased from my own Gallery. Of course this is a sad card to make….I really need to make a bunch of these to have on hand from now on.

Here’s my card I cased:

Here’s the new card I made from my inspiration card:

I actually had fun looking through my own gallery. Some of my cards are really old, well….from when I first started papercrafting! The cards from the other stampers are so awesome to see how they got inspiration from my projects!!! It’s an honor and humbling at the same time. The crafting community is fun and friendly, perfect match 😉

Here’s some close ups:

I really went with the sketch from my original card and flower theme….adding some changes here and there which always makes CASEing so fun! I also thought that a monochromatic color scheme was appropriate instead of the bright and bold colors of my original card. I used Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Gray Granite inks and Sahara Sand card stock.

Here’s another look:

I used a few retired items mixed with some new products, loving the Prized Peony bundle from the Annual catty. I stamped it in Basic Gray and heat embossed it on watercolor paper. Then just watercolored the image using the different inks.

I used the gray blender pens to color my pearls. I also lightly splattered the background to add texture. I watercolored some of the diecuts directly onto Sahara Sand cardstock to make them a tad darker for interest.

So even though I used inspiration from a similar card (flowers and the sketch), as you can see they look so different!!! Don’t you just love crafting?

Well, that’s it for today, thank you so much for stopping by and have a blessed week! ❤

Oh, and go on over to SplitCoast Stampers and join in the fun!!! 😉

Hiya Stampers! Today I’m sharing some fun little treat boxes.







I had so much fun making these from the Little Treats Bundle from the Stampin’  Up! 2020 Holiday Mini Catalog. The box die makes it simple and easy to put this together. I used the fun Plaid Tidings 6X6 DSP. Love this patterned paper.

Jar of Flowers

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

Today’s card is for the color challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the colors they gave us:


Here’s what I came up with:


I water colored and fussy cut the bouquet of flowers using Magenta Madness and Shaded Spruce inks.  Then I used blends on the stem of the flowers in Shaded Spruce for the jar, just because they went over the stamped water and didn’t want it muddying it up. I also added the Night of Navy to the water colored flowers as it’s in the neutral family.

Here’s a close up:


I used the twine and pink gems from my stash. I white embossed the sentiment onto Just Jade cardstock. I also stamped off 3 times to get a lighter version of color from Night of Navy ink for the water in the jar.

Well, that’s it for today. I hope you like my card. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a blessed weekend ❤

Sunflower Card

Hiya Stampers!

Hope that you have been doing well. Everyone is doing great here. Today’s card is for the challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the sketch they gave us to play with:


Here’s what I came up with:


I pretty much stayed with the sketch using the Flowers for Every Season Suite of products.

Here’s a close up:


I stamped the sunflower images from Celebrate Sunflowers in Early Espresso unto Bumble Bee cardstock, then I used blends to add some shading. I did the same with the leaves but stamped the leaves unto Just Jade cardstock using Shaded Spruce ink and blends.

Here’s another view:

116003498_578246383078513_4764326773337694148_n I kept the card pretty simple, just following the sketch given but adding the leaves for interest and the flag for the banner strip to the design. You can’t tell, but I added dots of gold Wink of Stella to the center of the flowers. I couldn’t get it to pick up in the pic.

Well, that’s it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day ❤


Purple Peonies

Hiya Bleeps (blog peeps)!

I hope you are doing good. Today’s card is for the color challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers. This week they gave us several color combos to choose from, I may try a couple of more before the week’s up!!!!


I chose the top colors. Highland Heather, Mint Macron and Gorgeous Grape. Here’s the card I came up with:


I also used white and black as my neutrals. I used the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Prized Peony and matching dies, lots of fun to play with. I clear embossed the black background with the large peony stamp in the stamp set and white embossed the sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia. Here’s some close ups:

Each layer of the diecuts is sponged and then curled using my bone folder to add some dimension.

Here’s another view:


I added some clear faceted gems, then added some sparkle splatter with my clear Wink of Stella to finish it off. I kinda wish I didn’t add the wink of Stella now, but can’t travel back in time, lol 😉

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day ❤

Purple Flowers

Hiya Peeps (blog peeps)!

Hope you are doing well on this early July the 4th weekend celebration!!! Today’s card is for the challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers. Here’s the color combo they gave us to work with:


Here’s what I came up with:


I loved these bold colors together and I paired it with black. I think it really pops! Here’s some close ups:

It’s a fairly simple design due to the new pretty dies from Stampin’ Up! called Blossoms in Bloom bundle.

Here’s another view:


I added some dimensionals to pop up the flowers after sponging the background and spritzing with water. I white embossed the sentiment from the stamp set bundle and just fussy cut it out. Lastly, I added black sequins from my stash to finish it off.

I also made a matching Bible Journaling Art page for John16:33.


I just noticed that two of the flower centers need to be filled it, lol 😀 Look how different the stamped image looks when you don’t add the die cuts! Since there are two different diecuts that coordinate with this set, the possibilities are endless!!!


As you can see, I still need to journal in it, I’ll try to do that tonight.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by. Have a very blessed Independent Weekend Celebration and be careful. God Bless America ❤
