May Friday Favorites

Have you missed me? I have been so busy this month that I haven't had much time to stamp and when I did make graduation cards and was going to post them I discovered that the stamp set that was retiring from the current catalog had all ready sold out. :-( But this is the last Friday of this month and I just couldn't resist doing the Friday Favorites post. I used the Watercolor Wonder Paper which I will be super sorry to see leave us in a few days. I also used the stamp set Regarding Dahlias and I used the new Blendabilities to color the flower. I haven't had a lot of time to practice with them but I am really enjoying them and right now the only way  you can get them is if you are a Demonstrator. Plus you can sign up to join the Stampin'UP! family for only $50.  Interested let me know. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! Tonya

May Card Sketch

Life has been busy which means I haven't had a chance to stamp lately so the card sketch is a great way to boost my mojo. I used the Starburst Framelits Dies and the Bring on the Cake Stamp Set to make the card. The colors are Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo, and Smoky Slate which comes from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper. This is such fun paper and great for this card and so many more. I added some bling with the Basic Rhinestones and now this card is ready to send out this week. I hope you will take a moment to play along and create your own card from our sketch. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

May Color Challenge

Hello and welcome to the May Color Challenge. I recently purchased the Just Sayin' Stamp Set and the matching Word Bubbles Framelits Dies. I am not sure why I waited so long but I am glad I finally bought them. I used our the Hardwood Stamp Set also to add some extra texture to the Crumb Cake Card Stock. I stamped with the White Craft Pad and used the Midnight Muse Ink to stamp the You're the Best! I used a lot of different textures on the word bubbles some of which are retiring soon. To finish off the card I used just a bit of Whisper White Baker's Twine. If you have any questions or would like to make this card yourself just let me know and I will be happy to help you with your purchase. Thanks and have a great day! Tonya
