A Walk in Spring Flowers

Hello! Happy Tuesday! The sun is finally shining here, although it's not supposed to last long. Apparently, this is the only rain-free day for the rest of the week. UGH! I am so ready for warm weather and dry skies. I guess it will get here eventually!

This is for today's Color Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers and for yesterday's sketch over on The Pink Elephant.

The colors for today's challenge were Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, and Certainly Celery. I added in Crumb Cake as a neutral.

I pulled out yet some more retired designer paper. This one is called "Walk in the Park". I paired it with one of my all-time favorite sets, For All You Do.

This is a pretty easy card. The flowers were stamped and then cut out and mounted on dimensionals. Everything else is pretty straight forward!

I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday...

Here's my second card for today! This one I actually made this morning... once again, I used some retired designer paper, "Jersey Shore". I needed a masculine birthday card, so this paper is always a go-to. Unfortunately, I am almost out of it!

The main image features a sentiment from the new set Bring on the Cake. I love this particular image because it is big enough to fill up the card front. I lack majorly in the masculine image department, so being able to just stick with a sentiment is a plus for me!

I stamped the sentiment on watercolor paper and then colored it in with my Stampin' Write Markers. Everything else was easy, just a matter of mixing designs and gluing them down!

This is for today's Techno Stamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch!

Welcome Baby...

Hi everyone! I am back!!! This is actually a card I made last night, but I wanted natural light to photograph it because it just looks better!

I used the retired (long retired, haha) designer paper, "Pool Party" for the dp on this card. The main image is from the Sale a Bration set, Punch Bunch which is one of my favorites this year. Remember, Sale a Bration ends on Thursday March 31st! If you want to earn a free stamp set for each $50 you order, don't delay! You can order in my online store 24/7!

This is a pretty basic card. I made the image multiple colors by using my Stampin' Write Markers to color directly on the stamp, then I huffed on it and stamped it! I punched it out with the small tag punch, then layered it with the large tag punch, the 1 3/8'' circle punch, and the scallop circle punch.

The buttons are non-Stampin' Up, but everything else is!

This is for two challenges:

1. Color Throwdown

2. Heart Song Inspirations Sketch

Thanks for stopping by!
