Fresh Peach and Mint Julep

Hi there!

I've been playing with the new Hero Arts, Mid-Tone Shadow Inks. The colors are Fresh Peach and Mint Julep and they are yummy! I love them separately but I think they look so pretty together too! Take a look.

I stamped the smallest flower from the Bold Pop Design set in both colors, then cut them out using the matching die. The card base was embossed using the Baby's Breath Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Hope you're all having a good weekend! Thanks for stopping by! :)

All Sweetness and Light


Over at the Moxie Fab World blog, the Tuesday Trigger this week is what Cath calls, "All Sweetness and Light." It is the prettiest picture! See?

I don't have anything relating to paisley but I love the pretty, soft colors in the photo, so I let that be my inspiration. Here's my take:

I wanted to also incorporate the comforter with those cute, white dots and the pretty white trim around the bedding and bed skirt.

I used a flower stamp from Flourishes. It comes in their set called, Zinnias. I white embossed each flower, painted them with a mix of Liquid Pearls and water, then cut them out and adhered them onto the card base. The leaves were cut using the Sizzix, Branch with Leaves die and the dotty paper is from Dear Lizzy's, Neapolitan 6x6 paper pad. I added some Melissa Frances lace and a Hero Arts  sentiment.

I'm so glad you stopped by today - thank you! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :)

A Card For Maddy

Hi there!

I have a card to share today for a very special girl. I'm sure you've seen the "Cards For Maddy" campaign but if you haven't, please check out this post here

All the information you need is there, and it would be wonderful if you could send this brave, young girl a hand made card. I can't even imagine what she and her family are going through.

I wanted my card for Maddy to be bright, happy and fun - hoping it will cheer her up, even just a little. So I pulled out a clear set from Simon Says Stamp and used one of the rose images. 

I also used some of the tiny, open dot images which are included in the set. I stamped them with black ink on the orange panel, then filled in the little circles with a white gel pen. The papers are all from the, "Fruit Stand" 6x6 paper pad from Doodlebug Design.

PLEASE consider making a card for Maddy if you haven't already done so.

Thanks for stopping by!
