Stippled Blossoms

When I first saw the Stippled Blossoms set (126747clear), I decided that I didn't need this set.  Ha!  Was I wrong.  I started seeing some beautiful cards made with it and so unfortunately I had to have it!!!  How many of you have ever done that?  So I start back to work tomorrow and thought I would try to squeeze in one more Stamping on Tuesday Challenge card.  I love Jenn Picard's work and this was one of her layouts.  Hi Jenn!  So I decided to use one of the new in colors,  Raspberry Ripple for the main color here partnered with Pretty In Pink and Old Olive.   To complete this gem, I added butterflies using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits (118138).  Did you know there 5 different butterflies on this little die?  I then added a pearl to each of them.

Storytime Teacher Gifts

I have been having so much fun making these little Post It note covers and the designer paper, "StoryTime" (126907) is perfect for making these little teacher gifts for the start of the school year.  The paper itself does all the work basically and you just have to add a few words or embellishments of your liking.  I used Riding Hood Red (111348), Wild Wasabi (108641), So Saffron (105118), Pool Party (122924), and Soft Suede (115318) card stock.  For the words I used Tiny Tags (118592 clear), Fabulous Phrases (120501 clear), Itty Bitty Bits (120060 clear), and Loving Thoughts (125845 clear).  Have a great day!

Another Tuesday Challenge

You would think that this layout would be so easy but I tend to sometimes over think and make it harder than it is.  But that's okay because I like to be challenged.  Today I used Serene Silhouettes (127324 clear), Gossamer Lace (129050 wood) and Loving Thoughts (125845 clear) stamp sets with Floral District Designer Paper (126919) for my background.  I love Rich Razzleberry and so I accented the card with a piece of ribbon and a button in that color as well as the ink(126950) to stamp my image and word in.  Oops I should have said this at the beginning but I made this card for Stampin on Tuesday!  It's fun and you should try it sometime.
