Beautiful Friendships~

Hello everyone...well, it's Friday again can you believe it? Time really does fly by!!  Do you have any exciting plans for your weekend?  I have NONE and I am so happy! I think I'll have lots of time to create!  World Card Making Day is October 5th and I'll be planning my event!  I'm also planning two sampler classes. October 12th for a FALL themed shadow box and November 2nd for a Christmas themed shadow box! I'm super excited to get started!

Today I want to share another card we are making in my August classes!

Isn't this a lovely card!  I haven't used this technique for a while and decided to try it out again!  

My card base is a 5 1/2" X 11" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Next is a 4" x 5 1/4" of Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  The stamped layer comes next and is 3 3/4" x 5".  To do the stamping you'll first need to cut another piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut an oval using the Stitched Shapes framelits.  I adhered it to the 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White with a tiny bit of Snail Adhesive then began my stamping.  I stamped over the oval using the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.  I used Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Old Olive ink.  When I finished stamping I lifted the stitched oval, stamped the sentiment and attached it to a larger stitched oval cut from Gorgeous Grape cardstock and then attached it to the stamped base with dimensionals!  My ladies loved it!  

Well...that's it for today!  THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by!  ENJOY your weekend!!!

Sketch Challenge - Parcels & Petals

Hello...WOW...it's Wednesday already!  I had a class this morning...it was so nice!  I'm always happy when I'm with my crafty friends!  Their kindness always brings me so much joy!  

I want to share a sketch challenge card I made the other day! I made it using scraps from the scrapbook page of my son that I shared on Saturday, August 10th!  I love it!!

Here's the sketch!

...and here is my card!!

The strips are cut into banners using scrap Come Sail Away DSP.  I also used the Perfect Parcels Dies to cut the Soft Sea Foam back drop for the sentiment.  The card is stamped with the Parcels & Petals stamp set, the flowers in Gray Granite ink that is stamped off and the sentiment in Memento Black ink.  I also used the Brick & Mortar embossing folder on Gray Granite cardstock.  The bling are Epoxy Droplets!  I love the colors, the design, the soft stamping! 

I hope I continue to inspire you to create!  Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by and letting me share what I love to do!  If you need any of these supplies you can purchase them from my Stampin' Up! store by clicking on SHOP NOW on the top right of this blog!  

HAVE A FANTASTIC DAY!!

"Maket-It Monday" Royal Peacock

Hello everyone! I hope your weekend was terrific.  If you're a local or live close by, what did you think about those storms?  Pretty cool! 578 lightening strikes...WOW! Technology is amazing to be able to see that!  

I love storms, so I had a blast sitting on the deck watching them!  I'm in bad shape today though.  On Thursday, I cut my elbow in the bathtub on a razor.  It's a little tiny cut that has already scabbed over but I got an infection in my lower arm.  It's red, warm to the touch, oh so sore and swollen.  My joints hurt, my bones hurt.  I went to the doctor this morning and he put me on antibiotics.  I picked them up, came home and went back to bed...just got up now!  When I'm done here, I'm going back to bed!  CRAZY!!!

It's Monday today and I have a BEAUTIFUL "Make-It Monday" to share with you!  BE INSPIRED!!

Scrappin’ Saturday - Well Written LOVE & Come Sail Away

Hello everyone! It’s Scrappin’ Saturday and I created a beautiful page to share with you today!

The base is a 12x12 piece of Basic Black cardstock with s 11 1/2” x 11 1/2” piece of Gray Granite cardstock on top.  The 11” x 11” Whisper White piece is stamped with the Artisan Textures stamp set by stamping off Gray Granite ink.  I embossed a 6” x 6” piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Corrugated embossing folder.  The stitched squares are cut from the Come Sail Away designer paper pack.  I added a stitched shaped circle cut from Gray Granite cardstock, along with a 3 1/2” x 11” strip also in Gray Granite and embossed with VersaMark and the Brick and Mortar embossing folder! The stems and the word love are cut from the Well Written dies!  I love how it turned out!  It’s a nice remembrance of my son!

Thank you for stopping by!  Enjoy your evening!
