About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

For You


I hope you're staying cool this weekend. Especially if you're in the west. It's still HOT, HOT, HOT here. At least in SoCal, the humidity is down today. I've been hanging out under my ceiling fan in my craft room to keep somewhat cool.

It's time for a new Paper Players challenge today and LeAnne is hostess with a pretty color theme challenge. I thought it would be pretty with flowers. I pulled out some stamps from the last Simon Says Stamp monthly kit and using this week's CAS(E) this Sketch! sketch, I made this thank you card.

Using my Misti Stamping Tool, I inked up the SSS Modern Rose Blossoms background stamp using the SU ink colors, inked in a diagonal pattern, and stamped it onto a panel of X-Press It Blending card stock. I trimmed it and rounded the bottom corners and adhered it to a card base of Pumpkin Pie card stock. The wreath/flower stamp is from SSS Mandy's Flowers set and is stamped on X-Press It Blending card stock using Memento tuxedo black and colored with SU Blends and Copics. I used the Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody Blends and for the So Saffron shade, I used Copics as the Daffodil Blends were a little too bright. After coloring the image, I fussy cut it out. I stamped the image onto the front of my card then using foam tape, popped the fussy cut image on top of the stamped image. I added a couple of black enamel dots and a puffy butterfly sticker per the sketch and stamped the greeting in black in the lower right corner.

On the inside, I used another sentiment and image from Mandy's Flowers and again colored them with Blends/Copics markers.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday evening and thanks for looking in,

  1. OH MY GOSH...this background is stunning, I can't stop looking at it! Well, the whole card is stunning, but that background...I might have to spend some money on that beauty myself! Love the vintage feel and the beautiful florals, inside and out! Your time under your craft room fan was well worth it! Thanks for playing with my Paper Players challenge this week!

  2. Beautiful card. Love the way you used the colors. That background is so pretty. I just got both of these stamp sets also and I need to play with them. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Beautiful background and wreath! I love how you used the colors for this week's Challenge over at The Paper Players! Thanks for sharing!
