Summer Silhouettes and Everything Eleanor were used to make this card. It was mostly cased from Vicky Hayes, a demo in the UK. I used white craft ink to stamp the flowers, then added color with a blender pen and Watercolor Crayons.
The sentiment is from Petite Pairs, and is stamped in Rose Red.
Supplies used include:
Stamp sets: Everything Eleanor, Summer Silhouettes
Card Stock: Crumb Cake
Inks: Crumb Cake, White Craft, Rose Red
Accessories: Champagne Mist, Watercolor Crayons, Blender Pens, Assorted markers.
Thanks for looking,

I needed a card for my Grandson who is graduating from High School this week. When I found this cute owl I knew I had to use it for my card. I wish I could remember where I saw it!
I changed the colors, rearranged the elements a bit and added my own embellishments.
Supplies include Real Red, Naturals White, Whisper White, Basic Black, and More Mustard card stock.The speech bubble and Seriously stamp are from the Paper Pumpkin kit for April. Also, the Sprinkled Expressions stamp set (retired) was used for the smaller sentiment, as well as Cherry Cobbler ink, the Owl builder punch, scalloped circle punch,wiggly eyes, handmade tassel, black brad for cap, 1/8" black taffeta ribbon, star button, linen thread, striped designer paper, dimensionals, and paper snips. The diploma is a strip of copy paper rolled around a skewer and tied with ribbon. Tip: use some tiny bits of snail adhesive inside the paper as you roll it up to keep it in place. Tie ribbon around the "diploma" before removing the skewer.

We recently visited a long time friend who has two cats. I wanted to send a thank you note, so I used the cat image from C is for Cat (retired stamp set) to make this card. The card measures 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches. I wanted to include some photos we had taken and a 4 x 6 photo fits perfectly in this card.
The background behind the window is Soft Sky card stock. This is a color that will be returning to Stampin' Up! in the new catalog that will be available in June.
The sun was made by punching a 1 1/4" circle in a scrap paper for a mask. I sponged the Daffodil Delight ink inside the punched opening.
The window frame is made from a window die cut that my sister gave me. It is backed by a piece of clear plastic to make it appear like glass. Lovely as a Tree stamp set provided a perfect image behind the window.
Basic Gray was used for the basic card, along with Whisper White and Basic Black card stock.
Although it is not visible in the photo, Pearl Ex was used on the collar, and a blue rhinestone was added to make a sparkle hanging from the collar. I love this cute cat, as it can be stamped in any color to resemble your own cat! I'm sure our friend will love it!

I am loving the new Dressed Up Framelits! I decided to use them to make this card for my Granddaughter's birthday. She loves clothes and shopping, so this gift should take care it.
My inspiration came from a card by Debbie Henderson that I saw on Stampin' Connection. I liked how she used the framelits behind the dress.
I embossed the bodice of the dress and attached ruffles from Pretty in Pink striped ribbon (retired).
The inside of the card shows a gift card holder attached on the left side. It repeats the colors and shapes from the front, and provides enough space to slip the gift card inside.
Stamp set: Bring on the Cake
Ink colors: Regal Rose, Basic Gray, Baja Breeze
Card stock colors: Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Pretty in Pink, Naturals White, retired DSP.
Accessories: Pink Grosgrain ribbon, Labels Framelits, All Dressed Up framelits, Oval wreath embossing folder, basic pearls, large oval punch, Sizzix Big Shot. sponges, sticky strip, Snail adhesive.
Although the pearls look pink in the photo, they are actually white.
Thanks for stopping by today!

This card idea came from a similar card I found on Stampin' Connection that was made by Loretta Springer. I enjoyed how easy it was to make!. Cutting the paper took longer than anything!
Stamp set: Watercolor Trio (sentiment) retired
Accessories: Lattice Bigz die cut and Big Shot, BoHo Blossoms punch, large oval punch, scallop oval punch, Pearl basic jewels, 3/8" stitched satin ribbon, 1/8' taffeta ribbon
Papers: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Regal Rose card stock, Brights DSP paper stack.
This card would be appropriate for many occasions by simply changing the sentiment.
Hope you have a lovely day,
I found an interesting card challenge on the Paper Players blog today using a re-purposed or recycled item on a project. During my cleaning up efforts yesterday I came across a tag I had removed from a swap card I received some time ago. It was the perfect object to include on my recycling project for the Paper Players # 140 Challenge.
First I removed the stamped letter from the tag and did some fine trimming around the edges. Then I began to look for other papers to carry out the colors in the tag. When I found the Sycamore Street DSP I decided to change the ribbon on the tag to coordinate with the paper. Then I found some scraps of Wild Wasabi colored DSP and trimmed them to make banners.
Once assembled I added some paper piercing around the edges and called it finished!
Not my usual style, but I do think I like it!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I always appreciate your thoughts and comments!
