I wanted to share a couple of cards we did in our last Wednesday Card Class, the ladies love, love , love the Blended Season Stamp Set that is a special set offered only in August.  It can be used year round.  The first card was done in Whisper White and Mossy Meadow card stock with Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper.  I used Highland Heather & Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends to color my image.  Love the new blends and am so excited that SU has new colors in the Annual & Holiday Catalogs. 

The second one was done with the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, Fresh Fig card stock and the Delicate Lace Edgelits.   The DSP is in the Annual Catty is beautiful, makes a great statement background for this card.  The lace border die was cut on both sides of a piece of Fresh Fig C/S, then mounted to the card with Dimensionals, a simple sentiment stamped in Fresh Fig and topped off with a little sparkle.  
If you are in the Fort Myers, Florida area and would like to attend our Wednesday group, we would love to have you.  Just contact me for details.  
Now on to the news...

One Sheet Wonder!

We all have heard of the One Sheet Wonder, right?  I didn't really look at this technique until the other day.  I ran across a YouTube Video which led me to this template by Michele Boyer on Craftsy,.  But you can find a variety of layouts online.  I think it will depend on your paper pattern.  This is a great way to get the most for your money.  I didn't come up with the same number of cards, but this will make a nice gift pack for a hostess or friend.

My paper was from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper Pack from the 2017-2018 Catty.

The colors I decided on were  Whisper White, Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist and I tucked a Night of Navy in there.  There is a bit of Basic Black mixed in.  You could use only Whisper White for your card bases and that would be fine.  You could even use a box of card bases and envelopes from your  local craft store if you are just starting out.  I did stick with one ink color and that was Tranquil Tide but I took the sentiments from several stamp sets. 

Don't forget the Buy 3 get one free on Designer paper that runs until the end of the month.
Until next time...

Happy 4th of July!

I've been off  blogging for a while, well life happens and I couldn't dedicate time to my blog.  My precious dog Lily had been diagnosed with Cancer a little over a 3 years ago.  After extensive surgery and treatment at the U of F School of Veterinary Medicine, in Tallahassee, she was declared cancer free.  Well, the ugly head reared up last May and she started treatment at a local Cancer Center after radiation, several rounds of Chemo, we are sad and heartbroken to say that we can't save her.  Over the time she has developed lung cancer and it doesn't response to any treatment.  The different rounds of Chemo have slowed the growth and she has not presented any symptoms yet, ie coughing loss of appetite, but the nodules in her lung are growing.   Now, we are facing the reality of her leaving us.  I don't remember a time when her loving eyes didn't greet me each morning or have her waiting for me at the door every time I came home.   I know she will be waiting for me over the rainbow bridge and it will be a joyous reunion for us.  Please keep her in your prayers and send positive vibes my way.

Sharing what I love to do......

RemARKably Created Sale-A-Brations 2018 Blog Hop

I am so happy to be part of the RemARKably Created Sale-A-Brations 2018 Blog Hop.  I hope you are enjoying your hop and have come from Libby Dison's Blog.   For my card I chose the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp set.  This set is Stampin' UP!'s new Distinktive stamps that lays down the ink at different ways to give the finished image more depth.  My card is done in Always Artichoke and Whisper White with a hint of gold. 
I stamped my flower bouquet onto a piece of Vellum Cardstock and colored the back with Stampin' Markers.  The color didn't pop until I back the image with a scrap of Whisper White.  I fussy cut it out to add to the front of my card.
Adding a frame made from our Gold Foil Paper and die cut with Layering Squares Framelits gave this a little pop of gold and I filled my shaker box with seed beads and sequins from my stash along with gold sequins from our Sequin Trim.  I embossed the "Enjoy today" using Gold Embossing Powder directly onto the Whisper White Mat. 
I stamped the floral image in Always Artichoke and left the inside blank allowing the card to be customized when I wanted to use it.
Thanks for stopping in and be sure to continue the hop on to Jillian Selwood's blog, you can follow her link or jump around using the list of blogs below.  Either way I am sure you will be delighted with the AWESOME creations.  Until next time be kind and Do One Thing TODAY that Makes YOU Happy!!!
