Happy Mother's Day


I know Mother's Day has been and gone (though really every day is a day to honour our mother!), I thought I would post the card I made for my mother in law. 




I used my Hero Arts layering orchid set. Man that set just stamps like butter! I love how it turned out! 

I linked up with Simon's Wednesday challenge...anything goes.

Happy Monday!

You are a wonderful friend


On this rainy long weekend I decided to play along with Simon Says Wednesday challenge, "a bit of sparkle." I played around with my Altenew magnolia set. All the magnolia blossoms around here are just about done, so it is nice to keep them alive in paper form!




I embossed the flowers, stems and leaves in gold then watercoloured them in with my Zig markers, Peerless paints and Distress markers. I fussy cut them and popped them on a base sprinkled with some Heidi Swapp gold mist. I die cut the "you" from gold foil paper and stamped the sentiment in gold Delicata from a Simon set I hadn't used in a long time. A few Simon sequins finished it off!

thanks for stopping by!

Happy May 2-4!

Happy Anniversary


On this rainy old Saturday I decided to play along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge "a hint of pink."

I played around with one of my favourite sets, WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals.




I just love the look of grey and pink together.

Thanks for stopping by!

It is never too early to start dreaming of wheelbarrows full of flowers right?!




I filled this Memory Box wheelbarrow with some WPlus9 flowers. Love it!

Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge


On this rainy old spring day I thought I would play along with PTI's April Blog Hop. Here is the pretty inspiration pattern...









I wanted to try out a new kit I recently bought, Color Pop Autumn, and even though it isn't spring themed, I really thought it went well with this inspiration pattern. I pulled out inks I thought would match: Soft Stone, Bright Buttercup, Orange Zest, and Pink Blush and played around with the stencils in this kit. I love how the images really pop on Fresh Snow Linen.




I added a die cut sentiment in Orange Zest and matted the linen base on Soft Stone. I love how it turned out! I think my dad will too. He always loves my cards.

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see all the pretty things along the hop.
