Dashing Deer Challenge

Hiya Stampers!

Today’s card is for the challenge over at Global Design Project. Here’s the sketch they gave us to work with:


Here’s what I came up with:


I found it hard to measure this sketch, but pretty much kept to it 😉

Here’s a close up:


I really like this green newsprint background from this limited time Dashing Along DSP!

Here’s another view of my card:


It’s a is fairly simple and straight forward card, which is great cause I haven’t had much time to stamp this week and this took me literally 15 minutes from start to finish!!!! Love it when that happens. Oh, and the Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine is retired unfortunately.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day! ❤


Strawberry Card

Hiya Stampers!

I hope your week is going great so far. Today’s card is for the sketch over at Sunday Stamps. Here’s the sketch they gave us:


Here’s my take on it:


I admit it, I was stumped at first and I almost gave up, lol. I looked at some of the others take on it and decided to give it a go. I kept to the sketch pretty closely and the rest of the card is fairly simple.

Here’s a close up:


I used some retired DSP and a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp called Sharing Sweet Thoughts. I masked the strawberries so I could stamp them twice and then watercolored them and finally added some glossy accents on top.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day ❤


Coffee Card Challenge

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

Today’s card is for the color challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. Here’s the color combo they gave us to work with:


Here’s what I came up with:


This was my first time watercoloring using actual coffee! I just made a simple watercolor wash background with it, so fun!!! I did use some retired products……the baker’s twine, embossing folder and DSP is from years ago!

Here’s a close up:


It was a little hard figuring out how to add the vellum to the front of the coffee cup. I added a thin line of TomBow glue to the line of the top of the cup. It did blur the ink some, but it will have to do, lol!

Here’s another view:


The whip cream image was stamped off with Crumb Cake and I added Wink of Stella to it, but then covered it with the vellum so now it’s a little hard to see.

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


Guest Designer at Global Design Project

Hiya Stampers!

Today is super exciting for me, I am the guest designer for Global Design Project #153!!! 😉  They gave us a really pretty color combo to use:



Here’s what I created:


I made a fun shaker card using the amazing limited-time Blended Seasons Bundle. The Framelits that are in this set made it a snap to put together! I used a piece of vellum for the bottom diecut and window sheet for the top. I added some sequins in the middle after using foam strip dimensionals to frame it up.

Here’s a close up:


I really love this patterned paper from the Nature’s Poem DSP. It’s so very pretty, even though you don’t see much here in my example. I embossed the leaves and water colored them using the new set of watercolored pencils that are also a part of this bundle. I then curled each leaf with my bone folder and popped some of them up onto dimensionals.

Here’s another view:


I fussy cut the leaves out. It doesn’t take that long if you have some good music to listen to and Elvis kept me company 😉 (yes, I’ve always been a die hard E fan since I was 18 months old). And finally, I used several strips of retired ribbon stacked upon each other to finish off my card.

Well, I hope you like my sample and don’t forget to grab your Blended Seasons Bundle before time runs out…..only 4 more days til’ it’s gone forever!!!!! 😦

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day ❤



GDP #152

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. Today’s card is for the challenge over at Global Design Project. They gave us a pretty card to CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit:


Here’s what I came up with:


As you can see, I pretty much kept the layout…..changed up a little bit here and there. Instead of her flowers on the corner, I used the teacup. I had some polka dotted vellum from my stash that I used instead of the white panel.

Here’s a close up:


I also used a different diecut shape on top of the purple diecut and used a different stamp set as well……oh and I used some retired seam binding ribbon, it didn’t match exactly but I don’t mind so much.

Here’s another view:


I used the Gorgeous Grape watercolor pencil to lightly color in some on the teacup and blended it in with a blender pen. Anyhoo, that’s all I have to share today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day ❤
