Mini Cupcake on a Mini Card!

Hello, hello! I did a little crafting while Sweet P napped yesterday. It was a short nap, but just enough time for a clean and simple card! This one is for CASology where the cue word is {Mini}. I'll also play along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge {Anything Goes}.

I started with a 4" x 4" card base that was dry embossed with whimsical little loops. I love this EF!! The focal panel was quick and easy.  A mini cupcake (Stamps by Judith), surrounded by a SU sentiment, was colored with markers, matted with some textured paper and topped off with a rhinestone cherry. Then I added it to the card with foam dots. Quick, cute and simple!

Wishing you a happy day ~Lisa


cQc #281 ~ So Proud of You!

Greetings all! Ready for a sweet new palette and inspiration photo for the ColourQ challenge? I went fresh and clean with my card using a lot of white. Hope you like it!

My pretty little fairy is from Past Time Stamps (they no longer exist).  She's colored in with colored pencils and accented with a glittered Gelly Roll pen. After die cutting my stamped panel with the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 die, I stamped the PTI sentiment under the fairy. This was adhered to my embossed (DeNami Design) card base then accented with buttons. 

Have a delightful day and thanks for stopping by! ~Lisa


RS #154 ~ Smile!

Hello sweet bloggy friends! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Hubby took me out to dinner after Mass on Saturday, just the two of us! I made a big pot of veggie soup on Sunday. We snuggled in, watched a movie and just relaxed. I did manage to make a card or two. This one today was inspired by this week's Retro Sketch.

I saw this as an opportunity to use up some older MME paper. I have just a few bits left from this 6x6 pad and would like to finish it off! After layering the DP and hand cut banners, I topped things off with a PTI tiny tag and a trio of wood veneer flowers. 

Thank you for visiting with me. I'll be back tomorrow with my card for a new ColourQ challenge. See you then ~Lisa 


Watch Me Grow!

Hey there! 
I'm squeaking in a last minute card for Retro Sketches so I'll make this quick!

I started with a vintage cream card base. I dry embossed the stars on just one portion then layered on the patterned paper from Simple Stories. The center strip is popped up with foam tape. For the trio of circles in the sketch, I added two die cut felt flowers (Paper Sweeties) topped with buttons and a little Hero Arts owl. He was added with a pop dot.

Easy peasy ~ happy Friday!! ~Lisa


Sweet P!

BRRRRR!!! Hang on to your hats it's getting colder!!! Well for some of us anyway *wink*! Having a cozy snuggle day with my Sweet P and thought I would share a couple of cute photos.

My daughter-in-law sent me this one from her school Valentine party!! 
She said it made her think of me and Penelope!!

And this was our little snuggle bug on Valentine's Day
Looks at that little finger. 
Seems like she saw the photo of the candy and is saying "hey, that's me!"

Be blessed friends ~Lisa


cQc #280 ~ Never Give Up!

Hey there! I'm here today to share my ColourQ card! I had fun with this one trying out the inlaid dies technique. It makes for a quick and easy card with that little bit of wow factor!

I took one look at the bracelet in the inspiration photo and new right away what stamp I would use. The arrows are from Precious Remembrance Shop's DIY stamp set. I curved them on my acrylic block, stamped them in a deep plum ink then clear embossed them. After the coloring was complete I die cut them along with the two smaller circles. The smaller were inlaid and the focal circle popped with foam dots. My sentiment, from the same set, has a little snippet of Wisteria Wonder paper that was die cut with a PPP Stitched Borders 1 die. And finally a sprinkling of PPP 4mm & 6mm Metallic Gold sequins.

Thanks so much for taking a peek! 
Be sure to check out what the amazing ColourQ team has to share. ~Lisa
