Pretty Posies

Quick share for tonight, lately my days have been full so it's usually late at night before I get to sit down and stamp. Sometimes I share, sometimes I don't but I thought I would share this one with you since I made it for a couple challenges.
To make my card I started with a Strawberry Slush A2 card base and a white panel cut with my new go to stitched die from MFT's Blueprints 15. I stamped the posies and leaves from the CAS-ual Fridays set Pretty Posies and masked them to get the look of some behind the others. After they were all stamped I removed the masks and colored them with Copic markers. the greeting is from the Bold Wishes set. To finish the card I added some light blue stippling around the image.

I am entering this card in a couple challenges

It's a Beautiful Day

To be You!
Love this Beautiful Words set from Concord & 9th, along with many of their other products. Greg and Angie are super sweet and such a joy, have you watched the crafty chat over at Online Card Classes with them? they are so fun! 

Now for the deets on my card. This for a friend for her birthday and she loves Coastal Cabana, so do I, it was a sad day when Stampin Up retired Coastal Cabana, who is with me here.
To make my I started with a Coastal Cabana card base and a white panel cut using a stitched die from MFT Stamps. I used Peerless watercolors to make the background behind the butterfly from the Floral & Flutter die set, and to paint a strip to cut out the word Beautiful from the Beautiful You dies.  To line up my stamping on each side of the die cut word beautiful, I used my MISTI of course, how did I ever do cards like this without it?
To finish off the card I used some sequins from Pretty, Pink, Posh.

HB Fishes to You

It's release day at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, we are excited about releasing Birthday Pals, this is a super cute set for kids of all ages. 
To make my card, I started with a Daffodil Delight card base and some patterned paper. I stamped the images from the new Birthday Pals set in Memento ink and colored them with Copic markers. I found this cute Bokeh paper from Lawn Fawn and popped the fish up with deminsionals, I love how it looks like he's in the water. I used my Scan 'n Cut to cut out the images but matching dies are available when you purchase the Bundle.

Wherever You Are

Sharing a card I made for the Dare to get Dirty challenges at Splitcoaststampers.  I combined a few companies to come up with the end result.
To make my card I started with a white A2 card base and a piece of Pool Party card stock. I stamped the retired World Map stamp from Stampin Up on the scrap of Pool Party card stock with Pool Party ink and then used the Speech Bubble Border to cut it to the size I wanted. Next I used this super cute Globe confetti cut from Reverse Confetti as the focal point. To finish it I added the greeting from the set My World also from Reverse Confetti.

Because it won't be long

Happy Tuesday! 

Because it won't be long until snow starts falling, so today I am playing with some CAS-ual Fridays snow sets Bring on the Snowflakes and Snowy Sayings. Both of these sets were in the SOA  holiday box but you can now get them on the CAS-ual Fridays site, I have linked to both of them above.
To make my card I started with a Pool Party A2 card base and a panel of watercolor paper cut out with a stitched die from the MFT Blueprints 15.
I stamped the snowflakes with Versamark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder. Next I made a background wash using some Pool Party reinker and for the snowflakes I used Tempting Turquoise reinker. I stamped the greeting on a strip of the same watercolor paper in Tempting Turquoise and finished the card by adding sone Wink of Stella to the centers of the snowflakes.
I am entering this one in a couple challenges.
