 The SUO Challenge is to make a Thanksgiving card/project OR a Thank You

I was trying to make a NON Halloween card with this Halloween Night DSP. I think I succeeded!



 Washi tape is from Moments Like These Project Life Accessories Pack
"Truly Thankful" stamp is from last years (Sept. '15) Paper Pumpkin Kit
I embossed it with the Tangerine Tango Classic ink pad & Clear Embossing Powder
The strip of paper under the "Truly Thankful" is from the Halloween Night DSP

 I used the Best Badge Punch on both edges of the Vellum Cardstock to get the fancy edge

Rose Wonder & Wink of Stella

I just HAD to try some new stuff right when my box came in!
This one came together fairly quickly! I had the pretty sunsets we've been witnessing lately on my mind.






2  Butterflies Embossed in Gold Embossing Powder and punched out with Bitty Butterfly Punch.
The brush strokes under the butterflies are from the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

 Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in Gold at the bottom. 
A strip of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim.


 I used the Wink of Stella Brush on the Very Vanilla edge too but it looked funny so I applied VersaMark right from the pad and embossed it with the Gold Embossing powder.





Thanks for stopping by!
I hope your day is wonderful!

One Wild Ride

Ok! I had to have this stamp set! Not that I ride but, it's SO cute!! And I do like motorcycles!
Here's a couple cards I cased from the Stampin' Success magazine we recieve as a demonstrator. 
This is a note book in the magazine. I turned it into a card.
So simple and cute!



 I embossed the life's a journey stamp in Black Embossing powder.
I used Kraft Rope Trim pulled apart, they used Linen thread.








 My next card uses the Brick Wall Impressions Embossing folder.
 You ink the folder with Archival Basic Black ink, place your cardstock in the folder
then run it through the Big Shot to get the distressed look. So cool!



 Again I used pulled apart Kraft Rope Trim from the Holiday Catalog where they used Linen Thread

You,ve Got This & Hardwood

Hey, back again with a Congrats card for a bridal shower.
I've been gone so long because I've laid another sister with cancer to rest! 3rd sister, 2nd one from cancer. The same type my mom died from! =(  I spent a lot of time with her in NH before her passing, which I'm very thankful for! 

So this card I started with Kraft cardstock. I embossed Hardwood stamp with Gold embossing powder and VersaMark. Then with a sponge and white Craft Ink I rubbed it several times for a white-washed look on the "wood'



I also embossed the flowers in Gold powder after I water-colored onto Watercolor Paper. Then fussy cut them out with paper snips. I cut some petals off of some of them.
The leaves were watercolored and cut out with the Flower Fair Framelits. I kinda folded them in the middle and inked the edges.



I watercolored part of the sentiment (actually I used left over from the leaves) , embossed in Gold again and cut out with the Lots of Labels Framelits.

 Thanks for stopping by!

Tap Tap Tap meets Typeset Designer Series Paper

Today I made a card for the SUO Challenge 148

The challenge is to use a favorite Designer Series Paper that is retiring.
I used the Typeset Specialty DSP
It's been my all time favorite! I'm still not tired of using it.

Here's my card. The base is actually Bermuda Bay CS. My lighting is bad! Sorry. 
I stamped World Map on it lightly
I used Typeset Specialty DSP, White Vellum Cardstock, the typewriter is on Watercolor Paper
 


Some Metallic Gold Thread, Venetian Crochet Trim, 1/8" Gold Ribbon



 "cheers" die from Greetings Thinlits that is retiring

 The Very Vanilla circle was cut with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch then stamped with the bottom "TAP" 
5 times. Then I stamped World Map in Bermuda Bay. 
It was a tad too bright so I put a 2 1/2" circle on top punched in White Vellum embossed with 
the Arrows Texture Impressions Embossing Folder

A Birthday card for #TGIFC52

It's their 1st birthday!

I used the cute bear from Bear Hugs stamps set and Balloon Celebration stamp set

The balloons were stamped with Calypso Coral Ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.
The strings are the Silver Metallic Thread
Oh and the dots  are made with a stamp from A Number of Years stamped in Calypso Coral I stamped off once then inked with Crumb Cake




 The SO cute little skirt was inked with Crumb Cake and then water colored with Calypso Coral and an Aqua Painter. I added Venetian Crochet Trim that is retiring =(  One of my Favorite Ribbons!


 I used a lot of Dimentionals! Time to order more. This pic was before I added the Rhinestones. I couldn't decide if I was going over board or not! Which I tend to do.

 But I like Bling! So I went with them. What do you think?

#TGIFC44 click  HERE to check it out.

This one is a Remix

 

I chose these two



This one popped in my head pretty quickly. The color of the trees for an Easter card!

I started with the Shimmery White Card stock, inked up my stamp really carefully (because a lot of my markers have dried up) using the ink pads, spritzed a tiny bit of water on the stamp and stamped. Then using the Fine Tip Glue Pen I went over the tops of the trees and the ground and sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter. Then I water colored the ground and the split panels behind it with an Aqua Painter, Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo & Rich Razzleberry


 Itty Bitty Epoxy circle Stickers & Gold Metallic Thread



 







Have a wonderful Day!
