Merry Monday #194


Hi everyone!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Lori challenges us to create a Christmas card with a tropical theme.


When I think of tropical, I think flip flops.  I saw these Santa Flip Flops online and knew I wanted to make some to use on my card.   The dies I used are from Lil' Inker Designs.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stamps:  Warmest Wishes (PTI)
Ink:  Black
Paper:  Pure Poppy & Black (PTI), Neenah, Champagne Glimmer paper (SU)
Accessories:  Flip Flop dies, Stitched scallop border (Lil' Inker)

Masculine & Feminine Birthday

Happy Friday everyone!
I created today's cards back in December when I first received the Stamp of Approval Young at Heart Collection and am finally sharing them here with you.  I created a masculine and feminine version.

Here is the masculine card...


and the feminine card...


As you can see, I changed up the colors and the stamps from the Ring in the Celebration stamp set to create two different cards using the same stamp set and die.  Keeping the scallops for the feminine version and the square for the masculine one.

I really do love this collection.  So many possibilities.  I LOVE seeing all the different creations using this collection popping up all over blog land.

I am adding these over at Seize the Birthday: Anything goes.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Sparkle & Shine Challenge


Hi everyone!
Today's card was inspired by the photo over at Sparkle & Shine Challenge.

Merry Monday #193


Hi everyone!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Linda challenges us to create a Christmas card with bells.


I used the bell stamp and matching die from the set Ornamental Christmas stamps and the sentiment from All the Christmas You'll Ever Need by Lil' Inker Designs.  I used the Quilted Stitched Pattern die on my card base.   The ombre paper is by Papertrey Ink.

Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

BUT FIRST, coffee.


Happy Sunday everyone!
Today's card was inspired by the Essentials by Ellen February Pin-sights Challenge.


I love the ombre colors in picture #9.  I used my Get in Line Stamp set by Clearly Whimsy to stamp the ombre stripes and the brand new Oh Frappe set by Julie.  LOVE it!!!  I am not a coffee drinker, tea for me, but I have many friends/family members that do drink coffee.  :)

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Plaid Birthday Cake!


Hi everyone!
I posted this month's Trends Article, featuring PLAID, over on StampNation this morning.  I created my own plaid paper using the Get in Line stamp set by Clearly Whimsy stamps and with the help of my MISTI.  I thought this would make a great masculine card for some of my family members that live in Northern NH.

Here's a peek at the cards I shared on StampNation.

Happy Birthday Shakers!


Hi everyone!

I am sharing a couple cards I made using the SOA Young at Heart Collection.  I was inspired by this card by Maureen.  I love how she stamped the candles inside some of the open spaces after stenciling.   I filled the inside with seed beads and I love how freely they move around.  

Here is another card using the left over piece.


I am popping both of these over at Simon Says: Shake It Up!
& Seize the Birthday: No toppings.

A new sketch challenge was also posted on StampNation yesterday. 

Here's a peek at the DT samples.
