Masculine Thank You

I realize the title of my post might be redundant……not many men send thank you cards but sometimes they might receive one - for something or other…..anyway the hole that I am digging brings me to my creation for today Hah!

I am linking up to this month's Reverse Confetti Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) and this week's Color Throwdown - both fabulous is their own right-- naturally!

I used a ton 'o Reverse Confetti product for these beautiful colours - it was really a no-brainer!

I trimmed and layered up two of the fun Quick Card Panels -Weather or Dot (And Stripes) along with Pina Colada  and stamped a couple of the sequins from Roundabout.

I stamped the thank you sentiment from Roundabout and die cut with the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts.  This particular circle die leaves a bit more of a white border but I am A-ok with that!

I stapled a couple of little flags cut from Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts - one of my favouritist of all time!! The little button tied with green twine added a little something - masculine for sure and not too frilly!

So very bee-you-tiful!

Good Sunny Morning in Ontario!  This week's Sweet Sunday Sketch was beckoning me to play - and since I really wanted to use my Reverse Confetti stamp set called The Buzz I went to work (play)

I love the big sentiment and the cute little bees, so this set was perfect for this sketch!

I decided to keep all of that white space - (although it drives me crazy!) so that I could highlight the bees and sentiment.

I stamped and coloured the cute little bee with my copic markers and then die cut him with The Buzz Confetti Cuts.  I diecut the sun from the Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts and also used two of the flags from the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts - I LOVE these dies!

I tucked the little flags in where they should go and then decided that twine and baubles would be just perfect to finish my sketch  Give that sketch a try - it's a cute one!!!

Just Because

Today I have combined *smooshing (a Laura Bassen favorite of mine) - and the Peony Cover Plate from Papertrey Ink for this week's Color Throwdown.

I used Shabby Shutters distressed ink along with Papertrey Ink Melon Berry and Hibiscus Burst re-inkers and combined them onto my non-stick craft sheet and spritzed the whole schmozzle with water.

I used plain white card stock - basically because my water-colour paper is somewhere beneath the hordes of paper on my desk - to lay on top of the watercolours and it worked terrifically!

I paid specific attention to the placement of the colours so that I could use the Peony Cover Plate on top - which I did- hah!

I added the sentiment - from the Papertrey Ink Scripted stamp set - onto white card stock and popped it up.  Some beautiful gems finished it off!

Woohoo! - now to link up to The Color Throwdown!

My Guiding Light

This week's Color Throwdown has some pretty colours that really caught my eye -again.... so I played along!

I love the new Guiding Lights stamp set from Papertrey Ink, so naturally I had to use it - an orange lighthouse and everything!  I've really started to love orange again - yay!

Just a short post today - lots to do and places to go!

Sending Smiles

Good Morning!  I'm sending smiles to you in the form of a new creation….

Your Next Stamp had a sale last week that I was able to take advantage of - whoop whoop!  so I inked  up my new stamps for this week's YNS sketch challenge!

I used Woodland Cuties stamp set and dies along with We R Memories Happy Camper patterned paper.

I stamped and coloured the sweet little fox with my copic markers, die cut it and popped it up onto my patterned paper.  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

I added a few little YNS gumdrops and tied some twine (so addicted).

Thanks for coming around today for a smile!
