For You Blended Bloom!

The new Blended Bloom Stamp is proving to be a favorite of mine when I want to dress-up a plain base color. A splash of Smoky Grey Classic Ink provides the perfect accompaniment for the stamp.

Stamp onto Pink Pirouette Cardstock, add a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels and you’re onto a winner for certain. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I seem to be rather partial to the good old Chalk Talk Stamp Set and Framelits!

Project Life makes it EASY!

When needing to create a card quickly, there is no better way than by reaching for your Project Life Cards Collection. This is a card that all but made itself as even the background of dots is a Project Life card!

And yes, it may have been quick but it is still a fabulous card for a birthday or even to hang from a bottle of wine when visiting a friend on a Friday afternoon. Just saying’…

Work of Art Rainbow!

The Work of Art Stamp Set has to be one of my new favorites. I’ll show more of these “Works of Art” (oh how I crack me up, lol) next week but for something Fast and Fabulous for Friday I couldn’t resist attempting a rainbow of sorts!

Perhaps next time the sentiment should be Heat Embossed but for now, with the addition of some Basic Rhinestone Jewels, I’m happy with the end result.

Sale-a-bration Scraps!

It never ceases to amaze me what can be created from a pile of scraps. Even the scalloped edge on the card below was a scrap, a result of cutting out the pattern on the reverse side of this DSP!

The right-hand side of the Summer Starfruit Die Cut was stamped-off with a stamp for the Petal Parade Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set. The cork flowers from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack finished off the card nicely!

10 days and counting left for these and any of the wonderful 2014 Sale-a-Bration treats – call me SOON with your order so you don’t miss out!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

You’re Lovely in Pink!

For a Fast Friday, it’s taking me longer to write this post than it did to make the card – what’s with THAT, lol?! Sadly, it really has become one of THOSE weeks. 🙁

Plus it would seem this week I’m in a very “pink” frame of mind. Not sure why, perhaps its a Ying/Yang thing, but after last week always reaching for the Bermuda Bay, this week I’m turning to pink. And if that’s not bad enough, I’ve CASE’d a card almost as exactly AS IS. Honestly, this seldom EVER happens with me. Habit has me changing most everything without even realizing it!

Are you familiar with this term – CASEing? Copy And Share Everything! It’s very acceptable in card-making although card etiquette does ask that credit is given where credit is due. In this CASE (pardon the pun but it had to be said, lol) it was Sharon Cheng, one VERY talented lady.

Now, without further ado here is MY card, lol!

Youre Lovely in Pink!

Talk about a great way to use up your scraps as all the colored cardstock came from my scrap-stash. Even the piece of White Vellum Cardstock came from my scraps. I love how this You’re Lovely stamp from the Sale-a-Bration selection compliments the Deco Labels Collections Dies.

Also, if you’re wanting to try this card yourself, the width of my strips from left to right were – 4cm, 3.5cm, 3cm and 2.5cm. The length is at your own discretion.
