SUNNY BIRTHDAY WISHES

We have lots of sun here and I sure hope that it sticks around for a long while!  The sunflowers on this card reflect these sunny days!

I keep going to this Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle(154065) because it just brings a smile to my face!  Is there anything more sunny and happy than a sunflower?

I also played around with the Well Written Dies(151816) for the birthday greeting.  Check them out, there are lots of choices for greetings along with a few cute images too!

FABULOUS FLOWERS

Happy Monday to you!  I’m starting the week off with some fabulous flowers that are very bright and cheerful!

Yep, they’re bright alright!  I got this inspiration from our flower garden this weekend.  With all of the rain we’ve been getting, not only did the flowers grow but the weeds loved it too!  Once they were taken care of, I was able to see all of my fabulous flowers!

I used the Poppy Moments dies((151594) and added that fabulous greeting from the Many Mates stamp set(152633).  The variegated colour on the greeting was a happy accident achieved by carefully placing the stamp on an angle and easing off on the pressure as it was stamped.  It adds just the right touch!

Happy Stamping!

YES, I DID!

Yes, I did!  I’m posting the very first Christmas card of 2020 from my stamp room!

The Toile Christmas stamp set(150469) made it into the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue, so why not get started early?  Especially since this has been a “topsy-turvy” year, who says one can’t think of Christmas in the month of July?!

Did you also notice the Toile Tidings designer paper?  It was carried over to the August-December Mini Catalogue so I pulled out a piece for this card as well.

The card layout is simple to show off that beautiful cardinal and to follow along with the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

COOKIES, COOKIES, YUM

Hello and welcome to my blog!  I have been away for a short break but am back and enjoying being back in the stamping zone!

Today’s card is all about celebrating Cookies!

I used the oh-so-cute Nothing’s Better Than Bundle(154061) for this and had a ton of fun creating!  Our weather had been very wet so eating a cookie while stamping helped a lot!

The Paper Players posted this Clean-and-Simple Celebrate challenge so I’m playing along by celebrating cookies!  Why Not for goodness sake, they’re delicious!

JUST ONE POPPY

Hi and welcome!  Today’s poppy card comes from a stamping tutorial from Andrea Walford.

I was so very taken with the card that Andrea did and the technique that I just had to try it for myself.  Since I don’t have the Field of Flowers stamp set, I used Painted Poppies(151599) with a little help from Grace’s Garden and Itty Bitty Greetings.

The background mat was coloured with Pool Party ink and a Sponge Brayer to give the ombre effect and then embossed with the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder.

The main image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends.  I played around with the White Craft ink for the “a little hello” greeting.  It is there just very light which means that I have to add more ink to the pad next time!

Here’s the list of products used.

A LITTLE WILD CUTENESS

Let’s start this week off with some cuteness with the Zany Zebras stamp set!

In case I haven’t said it before, I’m a little wild about this stamp set!  I pulled a piece from the Playing with Patterns designer paper pack(152490) to offset this cute little guy.

He was stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink and then I added a tiny bit of detail with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ and Blasic Black Write markers.

Here’s the list of products for you.

I hope that this little cutie brings a smile to your Monday and inspires you to go do some stamping!

YOU CAN DO THIS

OK, I’m doing this and back with another card that features the Forever Fern Bundle(154094).

Check out that gold leaf spray in the back – it is just one of the very beautiful pieces from the Forever Gold Lazer-cut specialty paper pack.

I had put the card base(Bumblebee) and mats(Soft Suede) together earlier and set it all aside because it seemed way to “autumn-y” but adding those vibrant greens added just the right amount of colour to set it all off.

This is one of those all occasion type cards that can be used for any occasion!

FRIENDLY SMILES

Do you have that one friend that always makes you smile?  I do, so I created a card to give her just to let her know!

I finally got my hands on the Forever Greenery Suite(154143) and love, love, love it!  The only product that I didn’t use on this card is the Forever Gold Lazer-cut specialty paper.  Keep visiting though because it is on my next card made with these products.

The Gold hoops are fabulous and a great way to highlight a special sentiment.

Hi, I have some more cute critters for you today!

There’s nothing like ending the week with some cuteness don’t you think?
