Stamptember With Pretty Pink Posh!

Hello! I'm here today taking part in the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Celebration! They have released a new Pretty Pink Posh stamp set for the festivities! 

Winter Bird Friend
I used some non-traditional colors for my card. The new bird, with her fun paper pieced hat, is tucked into the PPP Stitched Film Strip die. I created a shaker filled with 4mm & 6mm Marshmallow Sequins, Sparkling Clear Seed Beads and Silver Mini Star Confetti.

This was added to a panel that I blended with aqua and pink inks. There's a pretty sparkly silver panel here too that was die cut with a Stitched Borders 3 die. Some sweet polka dot ribbon from my dear blogging friend Greta created a nice border and helps to ground my sentiment.

Pop over to the PPP and SSS blogs for details on this new set. Then check out what cuteness my teammates have to share!! Thanks for spending a bit of your day with me ~Lisa

CCC #216 ~ With Sympathy

Happy autumn! Sure doesn't feel like the first day of fall for us with a high of 88 today. What's up with that? I have a sympathy card to share for this week's CASology challenge. Their cue word is frame. I'm not in need of a sympathy card, thanks be to God. So we'll let this one be for the loss of another summer!

I've had this stamped and embossed frame in my possession for years. I don't recall where it came from, perhaps a class or a borrowed stamp. But it was calling my name to be used in this challenge. I added three PTI Pretty Peony blooms, one die cut and popped up. The sentiment is one that I won from Great Impressions. I added just a few Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Silver Sequins (4mm & 6mm) to pull everything together. I love the way this card turned out, so elegant!

Have a wonderful day friends and thanks for visiting~ Lisa


cQc #360 ~ Fall Leaves...

Hey there! Ready for a pretty fall palette from ColourQ? When I saw the colors, I knew I had the perfect stamp set with the perfect sentiment.

I used Precious Remembrance Shop's Fall Colors stamp set to create this card. Just look at that sentiment, was I right...perfect wording for the colors this week! I stamped the leaves and speckles on a white panel using my Misti. This went onto a Soft Suede card base. To emphasize the word beautiful, I used the underscore from my Sweet Pea stamp set (PRS)!

Okay, now it's your turn!! 
Have a great day and thanks for visiting ~Lisa


cts #190 & pp #313~ Hello Autumn!

Well hello! Have you missed me? I've missed being here! Things were a bit crazy this past week. Our son was diagnosed with pneumonia last Friday, poor guy. He's on the mend though. Sweet P came down with a cold mid week. Thank goodness it hasn't become anything more than that. But it's so hard to see her not feeling well and having to gasp for air while drinking her bottle. Poor baby. She wasn't even in the mood for her favorite after nap snack of baby gold fish crackers. She calls then beesh!!

I did find some time to squeeze in a card today. I won't even tell you how long it took to make this simple card LOL!! Or how many attempts were trashed. But I managed to end up with something acceptable! This one is for CAS(E) This Sketch and The Paper Players.

The leaf is by Rubber Monger. It's stamped (PTI Scarlet Jewel ink) on a cream panel, then stamped again, watercolored and fussy cut. The second was added with foam tape and loaded up with WOS. I used two companies for the sentiment. 'Hello' is from PTI and 'autumn' is from Precious Remembrance Shop's Fall Colors Stamp Set. 

Thank so much for stopping by! ~Lisa
