Butterfly Prints/& update on my cousin

This card I made for my Aunt. I started with the stamping 411 sketch but I think I might be a little to late to enter it. I flipped the sketch on its side. It's not exact but the ideas there. Almost everything on this card is new stuff. The butterflys are from the butterfly prints set (I added dazzling diamonds to the butterflys) The background is from the new confetti stamp set (Love it). I used the new color coach for the colors on this card. I started with the butterfly stamped in Tangerine tango so I used the colors suggested for that color. They were Tangerine tango/cajun craze, so saffron, and pacific point. I added a neutral of crumb cake. The so saffron strip on the side is punched using the dotted scallooped ribbon border punch and the added bling is the new rhinestone jewels. I love how this turned out, what do you think?

I also wanted to give an update on my cousin. He was accepted into the craig rehab center in Denver. He will go there in about a week. I guess this is one of the best brain and spinal cord injury rehab centers in the country. We are very excited for him to get started on rehab and get better. We would still appreciate prayers for him. His name is Justin. Thank you so very much for your prayers:)

Hi, love the butterflies and the color combo. I find the color wheel really helpful too. We haven't received the new catalogue yet and new colors, so can still use it, but in September it all changes, so will have to get a new one. Love your card tho, and will add your cousin to my prayers. All the very best to him. Rel x

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Pleasant Poppies

These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends.  I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple.  Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up!  I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set.  On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted.  The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Well thats it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.

Pintrest CASE


Once or twice a month I get together with some friends to stamp, we have so much fun and are always looking forward to the next time we can get together.  This is one of the cards we made at our last get together.  This was a total CASE from pinterest.

I don't really have much to talk about today.  Took the day off work and I haven't gotten anything done.  I have so much to do and I can't seem to figure out where to start.  Anyways I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
