Etsy Summer Inspired Card

Whew! Did you feel May breeze by? I'm hoping the days slow down a bit and warm up!
Yay for sunshine and summer break!

And for Etsy...I found a darling pendant that inspired today's card. Love the two-toned background, the pop of color and the gleam of metal.

Click on the picture to visit Glittering Dreams to find your own inspiration!

This came together so easily using Great Impressions Stamps! 

The black satin crinkled ribbon was hard to photograph. IRL the texture is just right!
Love making my own backgrounds! You can do the same using these stamps:

Rose Trio (stamped in Vintage Photo Distress Ink)
Butterfly Flourish (stamped in Peacock Distress Ink)
Butterfly Frame (stamped and cut out the butterfly)
A Flower (the sentiment)

Wonderful You

Good Morning Friends!

Isn't this darling?  
I would love to re-create this for
a lovely summer brunch on the patio.  Until then, I was inspired
to make a friendship card pulling the colors, fruit,
 and the netting from the photo.

This look was simple to achieve using a yellow card-stock strip and 
wrapping twine around like a basket weave.  When finished, I just taped the twine on the back, 
tied on a jaunty little bow,  and adhered it to the card.  My sentiment is of course from 
Great Impressions Stamps and popped up for even more dimension.
Then, as I was looking through my stash of i candy,
I found some delightful fruity chipboard. Score!!

And, there you go.
Now your turn....find something you absolutely
adore and weave it into your own!
Love to see what you come up with!

Beautiful Bird

Happy Monday everyone. I really hope everyone is having a wonderful extended weekend. I know I know I should be making a card for Memorial day, but I made this one for last week and well my move too a little longer than expected so I didn't get a chance to share it!

 I am so excited about this recent card I made. I must say I love Asian themed cards and projects. I really like cultured themes. I also bought the new Serenity Bo Bunny paper pad and thought these stamps went perfect for my card.

I used the stamps

I also used a new piece of ribbon I got from a ribbon club I participate in. I also used and my largest oval spellbinder oval die to cut the image out and then distressed the edge with black soot DI. The image was colored with copics  of course and I used some Japanese Lacquer embossing powder on the script behind the ribbon.

I really hope you like this I find nice and peaceful. If you can come back tomorrow and check out what Jenny has in store for you!

Canning Time

A pinch, a tablespoon or maybe a cup...there are those days you know someone who could use a pick me up, a little reminder that you're thinking of them and wish them well even if you can't be there with them...

Cup of Cheer, Canning Time and Lacey Border together with a bit of splatter and lace...

Colored with Copics, then covered the jars with Diamond Glaze and paper pieced the labels after the glaze dried.

Happy Dad's Day

This one is for all the Dads out there.  
My Dad, who is in heaven now, always had a favorite recliner.
There he would contemplate the news, watch Jackie Gleason or a little sports.
What I remember the most is sitting on his lap enjoying a big bowl of buttered popcorn with him.
He taught me to love parmesan cheese on it too.  Honestly, try's the best!
Anyway, this plaid recliner reminds me of him and makes me smile.
I will always treasure and cherish the time spent with him on that chair.

Enjoy the day!

Wishing You...

Good morning!

Jenny here with a quick post.  
Shanna is on the road to Vegas.

A little on the shabby chic side, my card could be used for a wedding or
just to let a friend know you care.  I stamped and cut out the lacey butterflies
to frame my message and give extra dimension.

Not Shown:  Jo-Anne - Cloth Paper; May Arts - Ribbon; Hobby Lobby - Button

Have a wonderful Monday!
Be back tomorrow...
