Rooted In Nature - Pansy

Hello there and HAPPY Friday!  Do you have big plans for the weekend?  Do you celebrate Independence day this weekend and beyond?  Our celebrations start tonight!  Tonight starts with a Qualifier Open Barrel Race (which my daughter wants to participate in).  If she is in the top two for her age group she'll move on to the rodeo tomorrow night!  HOPING...HOPING...HOPING!!! There's also a Bull Riding Championship Saturday night along with softball tournaments, cribbage tournaments and Mary Poppins at our Performing Arts Center!  Sunday there are more softball tournaments, horseshoe tournaments, pickleball tournaments, train rides through town.  Our park is full of concessions through the 4th...lemonade, beer booths, kids swim free at the public pool.  Tuesday are our FIREWORKS and THE DESTRUCTION DERBY!  Wednesday is the Lions Club Pancake Breakfast, the Anvil Firing, our annual Pie and Ice Cream social, Arts & Crafts fair in the meadow, the Saw Mill, the Stamp Mill, the Jackson Museum and the Blacksmith shop are all FREE and we shut down Highway 299 for about forty-five minutes for our Main Street Parade!  It starts today and ends on Wednesday...lots of NOSTALGIA and FUN!  

Whatever your plans are I hope you find just a bit of time to create and here's just a little bit of INSPIRATION!


I created this card back at the beginning of the month (June 1st) when I made one that also looked like a poppy!  I was an a roll with this stamp set - Rooted In Nature!  Here's a PANSY made out of the same set!  

I just used my Stampin' Write Markers to color the center in Crushed Curry, the outside in Blackberry Bliss and stamped the image onto a 3 3/4" X 3 3/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. It is mounted onto a 3 7/8" X 3 7/8" piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock then offset from a 3 3/4" X 3 3/4" piece of Basic Black cardstock.  The background is Garden Impressions designer paper!  The sentiment (from the same stamp set) is stamped on the smallest square cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits!

I LOVE the colors...they're so rich!  I hope you'll give it a try!  THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by!  Enjoy your weekend...HAVE FUN and STAY SAFE!!

FUN fold and Swirly Bird

Hello Everyone!  Well, my adult sons, Trevor and Seth (and their three dogs) have both left and I miss them already!  I LOVE it when my kids come home!!  It's always great to see them!  My husband is outside painting the new porch in front of my workshop...or I think I might start calling it my STUDIO...is that too pretentious?  We had a bathroom built (still waiting on septic to be installed), but we also put a CUTE front porch that I absolutely love! Adam and Kate are off doing their own things so I'm finally gonna blog!

Here's a FUN fold card that I made a while back!  My card base is Melon Mambo with a 4 1/8" X 5 3/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock as the base mat. Next I took a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Garden Impressions designer paper and cut about two inches in at the middle of the long side of the paper.  Next I scored it from the right top and bottom corners back to the end of the cut and folded the dsp back exposing the Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Swirly Bird stamp set to stamp the circular images o(they look like flowers to me) in Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight onto a Stitched Shapes circle. The sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set and is stamped in Melon Mambo Ink.  I also used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to cut a large circle under the stamped images and a small circle scribble on top...both in Daffodil Delight.  You can just barely see that I also added a Tinted Faceted Button on top of the small circle scribble!  I love the fold...it can be FUN and FESTIVE like in this card, but it can also be VERY ELEGANT with softer more muted colors!  I hope you'll give it a try!  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by today!  Have a FANTASTIC afternoon and evening!  Hope you find just a moment to CREATE!!

Daisy Delight

Hello and HAPPY FRIDAY!  Yay...the weekend is here!  Do you have any fun plans?  I'm gonna be a single mom this weekend...my husband is going to Montana with our oldest son.  He has a job interview there so they are taking a road trip!  

I have another of my June class cards to share with you today!


I used the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and stamped the flower image twice with Mango Melody ink to get a fuller daisy.  The thank you is from the same set.  The background mat is embossed with the Polka Dot embossing folder and the ribbon I used is Night of Navy Gingham.  I love this card...it's clean and simple and comes together quickly!

Here are the Measurements:
Night of Navy Card base  - 4¼” X 11”
Whisper White – 4” X 5 ¼”
Whisper White (image)  - 2 ½” X 3 ½”
Night of Nave (mat) -  2 5/8” X 3 1/8”

Embossed Dragonflies!

Hey there...hi there...ho there!  How's your Thursday going?  I'm having a hard time getting going this morning...probably because it isn't morning anymore...it's AFTERNOON!!

I had a FABULOUS class yesterday! I was blessed to meet three new ladies!  I had a total of 18...it's amazing to me how a common interest brings us together, creates friendships and brings so much joy.  It's so fun to hear everyone visiting...I don't even mind when they miss the directions, they're having fun reconnecting and catching up!  It's an incredible gift I've been given and I am so grateful that I get to be a part of these gals lives!! 

My card today is one we created in class!  ENJOY!!

This FUN card is created with the Dragonfly Dream Stamp Set and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits!  I also used the NEW and AMAZING Big Shot Embossing MatsThese mats are on page 221 of the Annual Catalog and are easy to miss!  TRUST ME...you DON'T want to miss them!  They turn your framelits/thinlits into embossing folders!  VERY COOL!  You do have to pay close attention to how you layer them or you will cut them...ask me how I know?  I have to order a new set...THANKFULLY they are only $15.00. If you look at the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock...you can see that the small dragonflies are embossed and not cut...SUPER COOL don't you think?


Let me give you my measurements!  

Whisper White Card Base – 5 ½” X 8 ½”
Granny Apple Green Embossed  – 3 ½” X 3 ½”
Whisper White  (mat) – 3 5/8” x 3 5/8”
Basic Black (mat) – 3 ¾” X 3 ¾”

I stamped the dragonfly body in Memento Black ink, then the wings in Highland Heather (what a great name for a color)! I used my Dragronfly Thinlits to cut it out!  I used the detailed thinlit to cut another dragonfly from Vellum paper and adhered it to the stamped image with just a bit of Multipurpose Glue (I call it the GREEN glue in my classes because of the green lid!). I used the dots from the stamp set to add some texture using Lemon Lime Twist ink!  I'd love to hear what you think! Leave a comment if you have time!

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by!  I hope the rest of your day is WONDERFUL!
