SIP #200 Designer's Choice - Case a Designer

Hello and Happy Tuesday, also known as "I survived Monday"!  My kitchen remodel is still not complete... ugh!  I have most of my kitchen packed up in my craft room still.  This does not make for a fun card marking experience!  This week's Stamp, Ink, Paper is Designer's Choice.  Luckily for me I had recently received my Everything is Rosy Product Medley and it was easy to get to!

Here's my card using the Everything is Rosy Product Medley!



The colors I chose were Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, and Whisper White with Rose Gold Accents.  The background of Blushing Bride was stamped tone on tone with last month's Paper Pumpkin Rose stamp.  I love that etched image and have used it several times.   I loved that the Everything is Rosy Product Medley had labels ready to stamp a sentiment on.  I honestly could have used some of the floral die cuts that came with the suite but I decided to stamp and die cut my own.  I added some die cut Rose Gold foil greenery and added a few dots of the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint.   I finished it off with 3 of the Rose Gold flat sequins.  This kit is a little pricey but sure has a lot of fun components!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina

PCC336 Sketch Challenge with Stampin' Up! Everything is Rosy Suite

Hello!  Happy Hump Day!  We are still all crazy over here with my entire kitchen packed up and in my craft room.  Luckily I received my new Everything is Rosy Suite from Stampin' Up! today just in time to make my Design Team card for the new Paper Craft Crew Sketch!  So glad I didn't have to try to move things around in my craft room to get to a stamp set! lol



Here's my card using my fun new set!  I love the DSP in it!!


The colors in the suite are soooo pretty too!  I love the Night of Navy with the Rose Gold and Melon Mambo!!  Navy is really on trend this year.  How do I know that?  My daughter is having a baby and the colors in the nursery are Blush and Navy.  Believe me, if Christine says Navy is cool.... it's cool!

SIP #198 Wings of Wonder - Brusho Background and SU Butterfly Gala Stamp Set

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  I've had a crazy week or so while we are renovating our kitchen!  Most of my kitchen is currently packed up and in my craft room.  That being said, I was lucky to have been able to get to a stamp set that would work for this week's Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!  This week's Challenge is all about Wings.  I had a butterfly set in fairly close proximity to my desk so that's what I used!  I think Fairy's would be a fun twist though, don't you??


Luckily, when organizing some of my craft supplies a few weeks ago, I found some Brusho Watercolor Backgrounds I made a while back.  I decided to use some of those in today's card!



I actuallly used parts of several backgrounds.  Two of them were green with touches of mustard/gold. Those two were cut into stitched rectangles using the SU Stitched Rectangle Framelits.  I matted the smaller panel in Black before adhering it over the large Rectangle.   One of the Brusho Backgrounds was mostly gold so I used that one to stamp my butterflies from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and then punched them out and adhered just the body of the butterflies onto the front card panel with Gina K Connect Glue so that their wings could be lifted up.  The greenery was cut in Black from a Concord & 9th die from their Just Because Bundle.  I heat embossed the sentiment "a little note", also from the SU Butterfly Gala Stamp Set, in Black.  Finally I added just a few splatters of White Paint and then mounted the rectangles onto a Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 110# Card Base.

SIP #197 Something for Mom

Hi There!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  Stamp, Ink, Paper has a Something for Mom Challenge this week, just in time for Mother's Day!  


I made a super simple card using Concord & 9th Double Cut Alphabet Dies, CZ Designs SSS Simple Sentiments II You are Loved Stamp Set, and DSP!


Since I'm still in a use up my DSP/Patterned Paper kind of Mood, this one took very little stamping!  The beautiful DSP was the perfect background!  I used Stampin' Up Berry Burst Cardstock and Neenah 110# Crest Classic Solar White Card stock.  The sentiment from my new favorite sentiment set, CZ Designs SSS Simple Sentiments II You are Loved was heat embossed in white on a thin strip of Berry Burst Cardstock.  Such a simple card but I think super pretty!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina

SIP #196 Shaker Card Challenge

Hi Friends!  You know how I love a good shaker card and if you do too then head over to Stamp, Ink, Paper this week for our Shaker Card Challenge!

Here's what I came up with......


I combined some Stampin' Up! Rectangle Dies, Stampin' Up! Stamps and Concord & 9th Fabulous Phrases Dies to come up with this  beauty.   Add some window sheet, foam tape, and sequins and there you have it.  This one is really pretty.  The stamp set is Painted Seasons and was one of the freebie bundles from the recent Sale-a-bration promotion that ended a few weeks ago.  The frame was from the coordinating DSP that came in the bundle.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina

SIP #195 - A Walk with Nature - Hero Arts MMH Kit December 2018

Hi There!  It's Tuesday again and time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge.  This week it's a Walk With Nature.  There are so many possibilies with this one!


As I was going through my stamps I realized that I had never used any of the Images from My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts in December 2018.  So of course, I used it today.

I'm also entering this card in the #ablognamedhero challenge.


Here's my Clean and Simple Nature Themed Card.....


I went super clean and simple by stamping the mouse with the Dandelion in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto SU Whsiper White Cardstock.  I used my SU Blends Alchol Markers to add just a little color.  I also stamped one of the little dandelion fibers twice so that it would look like the mouse had just blown them off the dandelion.  I used a T-Ruler to add some black dotted lines under the mouse to ground him.   The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Black Onyx Ink and clear embossed.  I used my SU Stitched Rectangle (2nd from the largest) to cut out the panel and then matted with a thin layer of SU Basic Black Cardstock.  I also added just a little FSJ Sparkle Silk to add some interest.  After adhering to a SU Basic Gray A2 Card Base, I added some silver cord to the fold and tied it in the upper right to balance the card out just a bit.  I think it turned out super cute.  I couldn't believe I hadn't used this kit earlier.  I need to make a few cards out of it while it's out.


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina

OSAT Spring Fling Blog Hop With Stampin' Up! Tranquil Textures Suite


Hello and Happy Spring!  I know that not everyone has Spring Weather right now.  I've noticed a few friends in Wisconsin posting pictures of snow.  I am so thankful that it is beginning to feel like Spring here in Middle Tennessee with 70 degree weather most days!  If you have already been hoping on this month's OSAT Blog Hop, I would like to thank you for continuing.  If you started with me, thank you for stopping by and please make sure you hop all the way through so that you get lots of inspiration!

Although I'm beginning to notice lots of  beautiful flowers blooming, for me Spring takes me to Spring Break and all things Nautical!  I spent many a Spring Break with my children in Florida and my husband and I usually go on a cruise in the Spring so Nautical it is for me!


There are soooo many things I love about the Stampin' Up! Tranquil Textures Suite!  The DSP is gorgeous... Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig and so beautiful together!  I love the Sea of Textures Bundle!  That Octopus is awesome and the coordinating Under the Sea Framelits cut some of the areas between the legs and that seriously makes me happy!  Also, the framelits contain a super cool fish net stand along die as well as stand alone seagrass and coral that I used on this card!
