Round Two!

Hello sweet peeps! I have another masked heart card to share today. This one was actually my practice heart!

After I had done the stamping, I liked it, but I thought the heart I used was too big. So I set it aside and made the other one I shared on Thursday. Not wanting this one to go to waste, I switched things up a little. I added a couple of MS punched butterflies to balance the heart along with a trio of PPP lemon meringue sequins. This one was added to an aqua mist card base. The love sentiment is by IO die cut from a shimmery pink paper.

I like this one now too. The same, yet different!


PTI Make It Monday!

Welcome bloggy friends! I haven't played along with a Papertrey Ink Make It Monday in ever so long. I've always been a fan of Melissa Phillips and loved what shshared with us this week. I gave it ago and am tickled pink with the results! 

I used one of my Limitless Layers Hearts as the mask. A mix of images from Beautiful Blooms II and a little fern from Turning a New Leaf were stamped around the edges in Aqua Mist, Pale Peony, Harvest Gold and Spring Moss inks. The little heart and trio of dots came from the Love Lives Here Holiday set. This sentiment from Love Lives Here was a perfect fit! I finished it off using polka dot paper cut with the heart border die.
This was so easy to do. 
You really should give it a try too! 


Precious Remembrance Shop ~ Stamp Storage!

Hi there! Are you enjoying your week? Hope so. I'm popping in today to let you know I have a post up on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog. Members of the design team have been sharing how we store our clear stamps. It's my turn!

Have a delightful day!


The Paper Players #327

Wow, getting back into my card making frame of mind is taking it's good old time! I sit down at my desk and think, what to do, what to do. The Paper Players challenge helped me out today, thank goodness. Black and white plus one color seemed like the right direction to go. 

Pulling out another forgotten stamp by Renaissance Art Stamps. Isn't she cute! My son bought this stamp for me one Mothers Day. I didn't add a sentiment because there didn't seem to be a spot for one. I can always add one to the inside when I decide who to send this one to. A few teeny 3mm Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins and Wink of Stella (on her dress) added just the right touch of sparkle.

Thanks for visiting with me!


You're Special!

Hi there! I'm slowly getting back into my art studio after the holidays. When I saw this week's cue word for CASology, I knew I had to play along. My brother-in-law recently retired as Director of State Parks. He has a birthday coming up and I thought the cue word 'forest' was a perfect fit!

Following in the footsteps of many bloggers this year, I'm reaching for some of my older stamps. This pretty pine tree is by Hero Arts. It's stamped with Ripe Avocado ink (PTI) with some first and second generation stamping. I inked the upper portion of the panel with a soft blue then die cut with my Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Circle die. I cut some extra layers of the outer circle for more depth. This nifty pine embossing folder was also a good fit. The DeNami Design sentiment is on a PTI Tiny Tag die, also one of my older dies. In fact I think it was one of the first things I purchased from PTI!

I would love to know what you think of my new blog design! My profile pic needs to be updated. Hubby has been working lots of overtime. We'll get around to it one day. Other than a bit more mileage, I look the same LOL!!


CTS #203 ~ Love!

Hello! Seems like forever since I've gotten inky and had a new card to share. I have to admit, I felt quite rusty too. What should have been a quick simple card turned into several sighs, a smack on the forehead (after getting something crooked that had an exceptionally strong adhesive) and then I swallowed my gum! All that being said, I like the way it finally turned out! This one is for Cas(e) This Sketch.

I used a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 3 die on some Authentique paper. That, along with the love die cut (Impression Obsession), was left over from my 12 Kits of Occasions Sweet Pea kit. The pretty rose is from Winnie & Walter. I popped on a trio of PPP Sweet Pea Mix Sequins and added Wink of Stella to the bloom.

Have yourself a wonderful weekend ~Lisa
