Happy Birthday!

Hi there! I'm sharing a card today for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday. Ashley shared a pretty emboss resist technique that I wanted to try. Hope you like it! 

All of the images are from the Pretty Peonies set. I stamped the butterflies with Berry Sorbet ink. The two darker ones were stamped twice. The Misiti makes that so easy! My shading was done with Pale Peony ink and the leaves are in Green Parakeet. 

My sister-in-law has a birthday coming up. Think I'll pop this in the mail to her!


CCC#258 ~ Let Your Dreams Soar!

Goodness gracious are there cobwebs and dust on this blog or what!! My week after our vacation has been so busy that I could use another week away! I did manage to get a card made yesterday though, so here you go. This one is for the diamond challenge at CAS(ology).

Everything I've used (with the exception of cardstock, Copics and ink) is by Pretty Pink Posh. The newly released Scallop Diamond Tags and Fly A Kite Stamps & Coordinating Dies were perfect for this challenge. A few PPP Sparkling Clear Sequins (4mm & 6mm) to add to the Wink of Stella sparkle finished it off nicely.

I'm off and running again tomorrow. 
Hope to get in more crafty time this weekend!

CTS #229

Hey there! I made this card the other day and thought I better get it posted and entered into the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge before time runs out!

I used a patterned paper for my background matted in black. I popped a PTI Turning a New Leaf die cut on top then added the teeny butterflies (Martha Stewart punch). This didn't need a sentiment since the paper already had some!

Enjoy your day!


Live a Beautiful Life!

Hi friends! I found a little time to play along with PTI's Make It Monday. Betsy demonstrated a stenciling and masking technique.

I love this Meadow Greens set and don't use it often enough! My stencil was created using the negative from the pretty Mix and Match Scallops dies. My inks are Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse and Berry Sorbet. I also rubbed on a little WOS here and there.

Hope you like it! 
Have a blessed day!
