More Watercolor Wonder

Watercolor Wonder
16 more days before my favorite Designer Series Paper is retired.  Boo-hoo!  Can you find the paper in this card?  
If you don't see Watercolor Wonder paper, you are right!  It's in the picture below... I used it as the envelope liner!  How do you like those randomly placed gold sequins?  

This card is a direct CASE from Ronda Wade on her website.  I loved it so much I just had to copy it for my Watercolor class on Saturday!  The colors are Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Baked Brown Sugar.  I just love the flecks of gold from the sequins.

See you tomorrow and thanks for following me!

Quick and Easy Card for Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration


I made this card as a part of the Watercolor Wonder class on Saturday.  Whisper White is the color of the day, and this card totally reminds me of spring.  Do you love that Designer Series Paper?  Watercolor Wonder is retiring in 17 days!  Don't miss out on your opportunity to purchase it!  Do you love the birds?  They come from my favorite set - For the Birds!  And let us not forget the Candy Dots... my favorite accessory.

I made sure to use some Paper Piercing around the framelit cut-outs.  How cute is it?  I made sure to use the technique for one of my friends (and customers) Melissa V!  

Come back tomorrow for another Watercolor Wonder project!

Watercolor Wonder and Flower Shop

Watercolor Wonder is retiring in 18 days!  You need to order is ASAP!  During this week I am featuring several cards using the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper.  I CASE'd this card off Pinterest.  The sentiment is from the Perfect Pennant stamp set!  It matches perfectly with the Pennants Framelits.

Fab Friday Sketch #41

It's another Fab Friday...
And quite honestly, it's been an awesome week for me with Teacher Appreciation and finding out that I will be teaching at a new school in the grade I wanted (5th grade).  Exciting things happening in Tampa!  :)  Anyway, here is our sketch for the challenge!  Make sure you play along and link up your picture! 
Somehow this never was posted so here it is....
 This cute little card is actually a seed packet holder...
Do you love it as much as I do?  I really love the color scheme: Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals and Gumball Green.  I will miss these three colors the most of the retiring in-colors.

See you tomorrow....

Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop "Getting Punchy"

Welcome to our Stylin' Stampin' Blog Hop!  This month we switched things up a little bit and did something out of the box!  We aren't focusing on stamps but punches!  I love punch art and am excited to share with you a card I made my cousin for her upcoming graduation from Vet School!  This is no easy thing either... she has worked her butt off in these last four years (wow it went so fast!!!).  Hopefully she doesn't see my blog, but if she does, Tara, I am SO PROUD of YOU!  You are going to be an amazing vet!  Congrats Dr. T.G.!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left Kim's page which is stop number 10 on the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.
Here is my project... I used the oval punches (all 3 of them), several circles, the (retiring) heart, the heart from the Owl Builder and the Word Window.  I feel like it's pretty self-explanatory, but if you have questions - don't hesitate to ask!  The colors: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip and Melon Mambo.
 I used a new set that I earned for FREE called "Bravo".  This set is perfect for all the exciting things that we celebrate in life!  All three of the sentiments that I used came from this set.  I bet you are so excited to see this set on June 1st at my Catalog Pick-up Night.

Color Challenge for Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration

We have a color challenge over at the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration website for you!  Two of the colors are retiring as they are in-colors - Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit.  I do love them, but I am also excited to have FIVE new in-colors for you soon!  :)
I wanted to make this a manly card as I am really trying to make more of those lately!  Anyway, I used Off the Grid - which is retired and unavailable!  So sorry about that... this "while supplies last" deal is really throwing everyone for a loop!  Good news is that Gorgeous Grunge is also featured on this card and it didn't retire (YAY!!).  
Sassy Salutations is what I used for the sentiment.  It comes in a very useful set that has six different sentiments in a super cute (and fun) font! 

Check back tomorrow for more stampin' inspiration!  Thanks for following me!

Scrapbooking with Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration

I participated in the monthly scrapbook sketch challenge over at SSInk.  I made this page pretty easily and am dedicating it to my mom.  These pictures are from before my parents moved to Florida, when they lived in Michigan (2011).  My mom LOVES to garden and loves her flowers.  There are several things that make me think of my mom - but flowers are one of the first!

 I am quite new at photographing my scrapbook pages so please bare with me! 
 This is a picture prior to my finishing it.  I wanted you to see what it looked like before I was done!  And of course I had to zoom in on my adorable flower!  I put a candy dot in the center and then surrounded it with rhinestones!
Thanks for following me!  See you tomorrow for another fun "creative" post!
