Thankful Thursday

Hi stampers!  Look at me posting every day!  Don't get used to it, ha!  Anyway, since we had a break from the hello lovely color combo yesterday, I don't feel so bad showing AGAIN today;-)

I really do think this is one of the last things I have made up with it for now though.  For this card I cased a design by Amy O'neill and it's one I've used before.  I kind of love it!

Stamps:  Thoughtful banners, watercolor wings
Paper:  Whisper white, basic black, peekaboo peach, watercolor
Ink:  White craft ink, old olive, soft sky, peekaboo peach
Accessories:  Sweetheart punch, duet banner punch, circle punch, gold metallic thread, in color enamel shapes, hello lovely PL accessory kit, gold wink of Stella brush, white embossing powder,

I did some watercoloring for the background and then added some splatters with my wink of Stella pen.  The dots are actually from the watercolor wings stamp set and then there's some gold thread back there which is harder to see.  I really love the sweetheart punch and I forget to give it some love most of the time.  And then I finally broke down and got the thankful banners set.  You can see I bent my sentiment to fit within the banner.  I didn't do a great job so next time I'll be more careful and check it ;-)  But that's the nice thing about PP stamps, you can bend them!

And then there's the washi tape from the PL kit.  I LOVE it!

Happy stamping!

Washi Wednesday

Hi stampers!  We've made it half way through the week, yay!  I got the pop of pink stuff long ago but have yet to use it so I pulled it out the other day.  It looks great with the stamps from the oh happy day kit.  



Stamps:  Oh happy day kit
Paper:  Whisper white, basic black
Ink:  Basic black, versamark
Accessories:  Pop of pink washi tape, sequins metallic assortment, gold embossing powder

The friend sentiment it embossed with gold and I kind of love it!  I especially love the two fonts here as well.  Simple card but so cute, right?

Happy stamping!

Tangerine Tuesday

Hi stampers!  You're seeing the same color combo I've been obsessed with AGAIN.  Sorry not sorry though, it's really a great one.  It's taken from the hello lovely project life kit which I said I focused on last week and I've been continuing to use it.

I really like this stamp in two colors and it's easy to do with sponge daubers.  I use one dauber to apply the lighter color, peekaboo peach here, and then another to add the darker color around the outer edge.  I think this gives a much softer and more blended look than the rock and roll technique.

This card is also cased from a sample in the catalog.  In the catalog it's a gift bag I believe but I made mine into a card.
Stamps:  Scenic sayings
Paper:  Whisper white, basic black, soft sky, serene scenery DSP stack
Ink:  Peekaboo peach, tangerine tango
Accessories: Sparkle embossing folder, metallics assortment sequins, metallic foil doilies, pool party stitched satin ribbon

I really don't use old olive or tangerine tango much these days but this combo is sure making up for that!  It's funny how that happens!

Happy stamping!

Mailable Monday

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday, I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!  I'll be visiting my best friend this week so I tried to get some pretty things made over the weekend and ready to go up on the blog all through the week!  Go me!  Hehe!

Today's card is super simple but it's cute and totally mailable!

Stamps:  Scenic sayings
Paper:  Basic black, peekaboo peach, playful pallete DSP stack
Ink:  Basic black, peekaboo peach
Accessories:  None

The scenic sayings stamp sets is one of my very favorites.  I love large stamps that make an easy card and that's exactly what this set does!

I stamped directly on the DSP and then stamped it again on peach cardstock then cut the banner out.
I have to tell you that I really didn't care for this paper upon first glance (or the 20th or 30th).  The colors and patterns were a little too early 90's for me and I've heard a lot of people say the same.  There is literally a pattern or two that I'm pretty sure the designer stole from the comforter in my bedroom circa 1993 ;-)  BUT, as usual, I saw people make stuff with the paper stack and I came around and had to have it...funny how that works!  But I still don't want that comforter back ;-)

Happy stamping!

Lovely Globe

Hi stampers!  This week seems like the longest one ever after a short week last week I guess!  Anyway, here's another card I made with the hello lovely PL set.  I paired it with the globe from places you'll go and I love it!


Stamps:  Places you'll go, project life hello lovely accessory pack, gorgeous grunge
Paper:  Whisper white, basic black, soft sky
Ink:  Versamark, basic black, going gray, old olive, tangerine tango
Accessories:  Project life hello lovely accessory kit, copper EP, black baker's twine

I used the sequins from the kit as well, love those!  And I totally missed the black baker's twine in my first 100 or so catalog pass throughs!  I'd seen and gotten the black and white twine but I'm loving the plain black!  And as I mentioned earlier this week, I love the color combo in this kit!

Happy stamping!
