Hello Friend

Hello and good morning!! I know neon is a little bright for a good morning...but I just needed to used neon glitter with these fun splats from the new  Oh Splat set!!
Don't you agree!!? And I don't know what it is about neon and black and white...but I have it bad!! I pulled the sentient from the new Express Yourself set. 
For some reason I struggled to get the glitter to photograph well...but in real life this is sparkly and super fun!!! And, because I used a sticky embossing powder to apply the glitter, it isn't really going a lot of places!!:) Which is a bonus to those who we send cards to that don't love glitter as much as we do!? I sure do love me some glitter!!:)
Thanks for stopping by friends! Take care and see you soon!!

Hello there!! Hope you are all well!!
I've got some fun from Frantic Stamper to share today! I added a bit of texture to this card--I wish you could see it all in real life!! It's quite a fun one to touch!;)
I started with using some white embossing paste and a stencil on my banner die. I love the way the little polkas just add a bit of texture. I love embossing paste, sometimes I feel like it will take too long to dry, I don't know what to put over it....but whenever I use it I always think I need to use it more!! Break it out folks!!
Next I die cut my flowers and leaves. I used the Scribble Flower die and the Scribble Flower base and leaves dies as well. The flower is cut from glitter paper and is super fun in real life!! I added the leaves and flower to my banner die then added them to the card.
Next, I did something I did last weekend with Julie Ebersole in a stamping class. We used an awesome double sided thin foam--for cutting out the die. Then used some gold foil over the adhesive to make that lovely golden sentiment!!! I am kind of in love...
Hope you have a great day!! Take care and see you soon!!!

Happy Birthday

Good morning and happy Saturday!!
I hope you are doing well!! We're getting ready for a great few weeks with some of the people we love most and we can't wait!!
I'm here with the new Retro Sketch today!! Here is the fun new sketch!!
And here is my card!! I had the most wonderful time last weekend, taking a class from THE Julie Ebersole. I got to see Amy...who I always love chatting and stamping with!! It was a great time!! So, we made a card using a similar stamp to this--and then I simply just HAD to have this flower!! Can't even stand how much I love it!!! So, thank you Julie and flower cards will never stop!!

I also got to use a new die that I picked up a few days ago at another local store--it is from Lawn Fawn. I cut the die down, it really says happy birthday to you, but I just needed the first two words!;)
I inked up my stamp with Avery Elle ink...and stamping this literally made my heart sing. I pulled out some vellum for that layer on the sketch--I didn't want to cover that beautiful image!! A used my last remaining black and white twine strip and there you have it!! Oh, it is hard to see, but if you hold the card just right, you can see that the middle has some glisten and shine--iridescent glitter just added with a bit of a glue pen and some loose glitter!!
I hope you are doing well!! Can't wait to see your creations in the gallery!! Come join us!! 

Let's Fiesta!!

Good morning! Today is an exciting day...the peeks of the new July TAWS release start today!!
I am sharing some fun from the Cha Cha Cha set!! It is quite a delightful set, you will get a few good giggles as you create with it, ask me how I know!?

 I stamped the tacos, colored them in to my delight, then added a bit of "salt" with my glossy accents and clear sprinkles! My kids got such a kick out of this one!!
I used a new Heidi Swapp stencil for the background...and I kind of love it!!
Hope you enjoy the peek!! Be sure to head over the TAWS blog and see more fun images!!
