Watercolor Wonder

There is so many different aspects to the Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper. I saw a beautiful card made by Diana Gibbs on Pinterest with this color combination and it totally inspired me!!  I have so many pieces of this rose paper from the Watercolor Wonder DSP and I thought this is a lovely way to use it.



Using the Hexagon Hive Framelit on the pretty rose DSP  and adding the Smokey Slate dot DSP behind.  The Soft Sky Cardstock and Soft Sky Seam Binding  compliments the Smokey Slate and Crisp Cantaloupe colors wonderfully.


I also made a quick gift bag from the same combinations of  designer papers.  I used a clip from the Hardware Essentials to keep my bag closed.


Check out the silver glitter butterfly underlay….it is the little things that make it special.

Next…how about some Eggs for the basket too!!  Check out these super easy Easter Egg treat cups!  Cut two Ovals using the Oval Framelits , one white cardstock and the other from the Brights Designer Paper(DSP), punch a hole with a 1 3/4 inch punch in the colored DSP oval , put treats into the Circle Treat Cup and assemble.  Ready just in time for Easter baskets or on everyone's  Easter breakfast plate!

Sunday Inspiration and Card Share!

Happy Sunday!!  I thought this is so true…especially for us stampers!!



Card Share…So Very Grateful!


I am all about window sheets right now.  When I first started stamping , 17 yrs. ago, shaker cards were all the rage.  And then for the longest time, I didn’t use window sheets at all..now I can't get enough of them.  They are so much more than just a shaker card.   And of course there is nothing better than  polka dots and a flowers!!

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Smokey Slate

Stamp Set:  So Very Grateful, A Dozen Thoughts

Accessories:  Windows Sheets, White Taffeta Ribbon, Strawberry Slush, Soft Sky, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz Daffodil Delight markers, Neutrals Designer Paper

Another Great Year!

I love a stamp set that has a nice, big presence…Another Great Year does just that!   It makes it easy to create a card.  Stamp the greeting in black on the card and again on a piece scrap red cardstock.  Cut the red banners out and pop up over your stamped greeting.  As for the candles…take a 2 1/2 inch x 2 1/2 inch piece of dsp , roll it around a skinny stick(I used a paint brush handle)  wind it tight and secure the end with mono adhesive or mono glue.  Attach the flame(bird punch wing) to string and slide in the dsp tube for a cute candle look!


Cardstock:  Whisper White, Pool Party, Real Red

Stamp Set:  Another Great Year, Glorious Grunge

Accessories:  I Am Me Designer Paper, Bird Punch, White Baker’s Twine
