So very grateful for you!


I absolutely adore this new stamp set and I am so glad I finally got it.   I chose to go with non-autumn colors and I am dreaming of spring!  🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷

The Mint Macaron and So Saffron were my colors of choice, with a few pinks and blues--and the black and white of course.

The scallop die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets set is one of my favorite dies.  I love big bold scallops and I think it looks great here!


I have a close up of the flower to show that I used little pearls on all of the circles on the image---but as you can see from the picture one of the pearls mysteriously disappeared 😮.  Funny how you don't notice it until you see the picture--that happens to me a lot!

BTW, isn't this embossing folder beautiful!?  I love it.  Looks like a tin ceiling!  Hence the name Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Makes sense right, lol.


Here is the inside of the card too.  I love the little thanks in the corner.



Here are the supplies used for my sample today.

Congrats to you Let's celebrate!

I really had some fun with this card.  I was using up some of those velum cut leaves that were in one of the recent Paper Pumpkin kits.  I actually feel like I may find some colored vellum and cut some of my own, I really like the effect they have on a card.


I really love these colors and patterns.  They are still those same papers I have been using--which are amazingly beautiful--every single piece.  It is from the Love What You Do specialty paper pack. I had some fun adding the she believed she could sentiment along the bottom--it is from the This little piggy set.  I felt good using it on this card even though I had no recipient in mind mostly because it wasn't looking very masculine, lol.  So why not right!  Without that though I think it would be a pretty wedding card.  Maybe with the words together forever or and so it begins or happily ever after or or or--you get my point, right!   Here is the inside of the card too.  I added that flower from the Perennial Birthday set inside and had fun mixing colors with my blends to make it kind of match the front colors.  The inside sentiment is also from this set.



I am super happy with how this card turned out.  Lots of layers and lots of texture!  And amazing colors.  Now I just need to find a female friend who needs to be celebrated!

Hope you have a great weekend.  Don't forget to set you clocks back tonight--extra hour of sleep!  YES!

Take Two Tuesday!

Welcome to Take Two Tuesday where I take an old sample and recreate it using current products!  I love doing this--essentially I am just casing myself, lol.  But it sounds better to call it Take Two Tuesday!  Don't you agree?

I try to do these without much thought of what sample I pick from the pile and what set I use.  So when I randomly picked today's sample I was a bit bummed as I have not crafted in a bit and I really didn't even like the sample I picked to case!  But what the heck--I gave it a go anyway.  I seriously need to up my game with my designer paper.  I stopped ordering it for a while as I could not use it fast enough before it retired, but now I am down to only one current paper pack!  So you notice I have made all my cards using the same designer paper lately.  Good think I love the paper!

Here is the old and new card together......


It is not one of my favorites...but it sure felt good to craft so I am not complaining in any way!  It is too good to be back at it. 

Here is the new card alone......


This was the first time I pulled out the dies that match the Colorful Seasons set--they are pretty awesome!  And there are a lot of dies in the set.  The stamped leaf in the background is from the Colorful Seasons set along with the sentiment.  Mint Macron and Rich Razzleberry seemed like a strange combo at first but it has grown on me a bit.  I cut the veins of the leaf with the polka dot paper to try to pull it all together???  Not positive it worked but as I said before--I am ok with it.  

Here are the supplies used on my card.
