FS376 Nothing is Impossible!

Happy Easter!  I hope you all have a wonderful Easter with friends and family....and chocolate for kicks!

I made a quick card for today's featured stamper at Splitcoaststampers.  The MFT Dienamics Lily is perfect for a CAS card - clean and simple!

I diecut the Lily Dienamics from white cardstock and then coloured each piece with my copic markers.  My daughter loves Tiger lilies so I made these to match....sort of...:)

The background was embossed with the Sun Ray Stencil - and then the coloured pieces of the lily were layered on top.

The sentiment is from Lisa Johnson's gorgeous stamp set called Words of Inspiration - a beautiful set with tons of inspirational sentiments.

I have been chopping and slicing carrots and parsnips allll  morning, and do they ever smell wonderful! Now on to the dessert!

Happy Anniversary!

Good Morning!  Splitcoaststampers has a great inspiration challenge today - as always - and this time the inspiration comes from Marks & Spencer - the children's section.

Over the years, I have always loved their jams and crackers AND the fabulous quality of their clothing.

I chose to be inspired by this sweet little dress - the colours are beautiful and I love how they interact with each other - a great colour combo!

Instead of flowers, I went with butterflies  - I love this Beautiful Butterflies Papertrey Ink stamp set by Maile Belles.

I stamped up some of the butterflies onto Sweet Blush cardstock using Berry Sorbet, Navy (Hero Arts), and Sweet Tooth (My Favorite Things) inks.  The butterfly die is also from the same stamp set - I decided to use a bit of vellum to soften it up!

Thanks for coming around - happy Easter!

Baby Congratulations!

When we were south there were a few babies born around the area, so I am trying to get caught up in the baby congrats area!

My Favorite Things had a great BABY release this past month so of course I capitalized on their product - as is only right - and created a few things.

I am in love with this shaker card!  There is a fabulous video - right here- on how to assemble this shaker card - so easy to follow and it took no time at all.

The Centerpieces Congratulations Shaker Dienamics did all the work - I just had to die cut and assemble!  I had a bit of Bazzill Bling cardstock which I used to diecut the "confetti" - baby rattles, swirls and stars - so perfect!

The safety pin is from Oh Baby Dienamics - another perfect baby die set! I also used a bit of gold for the safety pin with some gold twine to compliment!

The sentiment is from Lisa Johnson's Beautiful Baby stamp set from My Favorite Things - I love it too - I am definitely full of love today haha....

MFT Sketch Challenge

Good Morning - just getting this card in under the wire again!  Between taxes and stamping - well....I know which one I love more, but there is that crazy thing that NEEDS to be done - boooo.

I needed a bit of a break last night so I tackled the My Favorite Things sketch challenge - here is the sketch.....

and here is my card.....I went slightly neutral on this one - but I like the effect - it calms me.

The stamp set, Go Overboard, is from My Favorite Things and is a Dienamics Companion Set - which means that the stamp set has Dienamics that compliment it - Love that!  The Dienamics are called Let's Get Nautical and I used the little "steering wheel" - I don't think that is what it is called lol - as my embellishment.  I topped it with a Sno-Cone button tied with twine.

The background was stenciled with Sweet Tooth ink using the Stripes Stencil and I made the clouds using the MFT Flat Bottom Cloud Dienamics.

More snow today - not liking this at all - c'mon spring - I'm ready for you!

Home is Where Your Heart Is....

Yes, I am still thankful to be home from Florida, even with all the ups and downs in the weather was beautiful and yesterday we even went golfing at our home course!

I made this card for the Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge - just getting it in under the wire haha...and this week the challenge is...... JOURNEY.  I decided to take the different route journey ended at home, the place I love.

 I used the sweet stamp set called "Where the Heart Is" with the coordinating dies - I really love the fact that you can get twice as much fun with a set by using the matching dies!

My patterned paper is the 6 x 6 paper pad "Into the Woods" from Lawn Fawn - these papers actually came in one of my Simon Says Kit of the Month parcels!

Okay, I am booking out so I can link up with the challenge!
