Guesting at Inspired by All the Little Things!


Hello and welcome! I'm absolutely tickled pink to be guesting with the fabulous Inspired By All the Little Things design team today! My sweet friend Tracey McNeely invited me and I dove right in after seeing the challenge graphic! 



I was most definitely inspired by all the little things in this photo! Let me break it down for you...



The layout for my design sticks pretty close to the inspiration photo. The gold circle (Pretty Pink Posh: Scallop Circle Die) was my jumping off point. To me, it represents the tea in the cup. The snippets of paper doily I added mimic the saucer. I knew right away I would be using images from my Sweet Pea Stamp Set (Precious Remembrance Shop) and I LOVE the way they look! The tiny leafy sprigs are from the PPP Holiday Pals Stamp Set. I think it compliments my little sweet pea flowers nicely! I did use a lighter green. A darker one seemed too harsh with the delicate elements on the card.

I'm so happy you could spend a bit of your day with me! Be sure to check out what the DT from Inspired by All the Little Things has to share. Thanks so much to Tracey, Lesley, and the Inspired by All the Little Things Design Team for having me this week! ~Lisa

cQc #343 ~ With Heartfelt thanks!

Here we are again at another Tuesday and with it comes a new palette at ColourQGold is thrown into the mix this week and that makes me a happy girl!


I've used a whimsical geranium stamp by Endless Creations. The blossoms were colored with Calypso Coral ink and a water brush. My PTI sentiment was embossed in gold and I added a fancy gold die cut border. This is called Monarch by MFT. I think it's discontinued. If you look closely at the hem of the skirt in the inspiration photo, you'll see a pompom trim. This border is my take on that!!

That's a wrap for me today. We have another beautiful day ahead of us and that means Sweet P and I will be enjoying a long walk. She loves hearing the birds and cawing back at the crows!!!


Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting ~Lisa

PP #295 & RS #215 ~ Love!

Hi! I found some extra time this week to squeeze in a challenge or two. I liked LeAnne's CAS wild thing theme at The Paper PlayersRetro Sketches provided me with the perfect design, so I combined the two challenges.



My little Sweet P roars like a lion. In fact, when the dandelions began to spring up in the neighborhood she wanted to pick them. I told her they were dandelions and she roared!! Cutest thing ever!! So of course my wild animal had to be a lion. 

This little cutie is from Stamps by Judith. He's stamped on a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tags die and added to the card with foam tape. The papers I used are October Afternoon. I cut two strips with a grass die (Impression Obsession) and one with a PPP Stitched Borders 3 die. I can just picture this little fella hiding in the grass! The notebook die is from PTI and my sentiment is from Precious Remembrance Shop's This Moment stamp set. I liked the brushed scratchy look of it with the lion! A trio of 6mm Marigold sequins from PPP finish things off.

That's a lot of companies on one card LOL!! But I think they all work together and I love the way this turned out! 




Have a delightful day! ~Lisa

cQc #342 ~ Thanks a Bunch!

Hey there, ready for a new palette from ColourQ? This one is bright and cheerful, I think you'll like it! I decided to go fun today and have a shaker card to share.


I stamped a sentiment and a couple of flowers from Reverse Confetti's Petals 'n Posies stamp set onto a white panel. Next came the Pretty Pink Posh Decorative Tag 1 die. The shaker was filled with 4mm & 6mm Aquamarine, 4mm & 6mm Watermelon and 6mm Tangerine Sequins. Everything was topped off with more flowers from the Petals 'n Posies then added to a white card base.

My Coastal Cabana is a bit off. In the cloudy rainy weather we had over the weekend my aquamarine sequins seemed to have been a good match! Sorry about that!



We love seeing your cards in the gallery! 
Can't wait to see what you make with this week's happy colors!

First up I've used the new Stitched Essentials die to create a little shaker. It's filled with the new (and ever so pretty!) Metallic Rose Gold (4mm) & Ballerina Pink (4mm) Sequins and Sparkling Clear Seed Beads. I've used images from the Darling Friends (sentiment) and Holiday Pals (cat & bow) stamp sets. There's even a snippet of a Stitched Borders 4 die on the bottom of the tag!


This one also uses a new Stitched Essentials die. The shaker is filled with the new 4mm Sunshine Glow sequins and Iridescent Mini Star Confetti. I made vellum clouds using dies from the Rainy Days set. The hugs sentiment is from the Birdie Friends stamp set. The bracket die cut border comes from the Stitched Borders 4 dies.

Okay that's it from me.
