Flower Patch for WWYS

Hi Honey I'm home!!!

I've come back to WWYS and am so glad to be here. 
I took a short much needed break but missed this group so much asked to come back. 

So without further ado.....this weeks featured Stamp Set is "Flower Patch" and here is my creation. I hope you like it.

Here is the full Set for your Viewing Pleasure

I  had tons of fun making this card. Got a little creative with my Square Framelit to make my Frame. Want to see how? 

I added to square to the top of my card stock...and ran it half way through on my Big Shot. I then flipped the card stock and lined the grooves of the framelits up on the other side.  Like shown above. 
I ran it through half way again. 
The end result was fabulous!

As you can see I just has a smidgen left that was not cut so just used my paper snips to finish the job for my quick and easy frame. I love how easy it was!

I stamped my Blossoms in Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder in the center of the flower. I then cut out a little blossom to add to the top of it for a little dimension. Did that one in Blushing Bride too. The leaves were done in Old Olive and yes I fussy cut those just for you. lol
Wasn't sure what to put inside my frame.....then spied some sequins on my work area....pulled out the Blushing Bride and Watermelon ones and glued them on with my Fine Tip Glue Pen. 

I added a Rhinestone to the center of the flower and also added a few in the top right corner just for grins. Love my bling!!

You know I finished this card and thought it needs added the Birthday Sentiment from Birthday Blossoms and stamped it in Gray. Wanted it to be soft looking. One more thing.....I still felt it needed something so pulled out the old fabulous "Gorgeous Grunge " and lightly stamped the frame....even though it was already put together. I took a scrap of paper and worked my way around so I wouldn't get it on the base of the care. I stamped it in Blushing Bride as well to keep it soft looking. 

Product List For You
Please let me know if you have any questions about this card...I'm happy to help.

Well it's been another month and it's time for Totally Techniques again. 
This month we are working with the "Floating Re-Inker" Technique
So get ready to hang on for a fabulous ride in Technique Land! lol

I wanted this card to be kind of Old Timey as I love this Designer Paper and decided I'd better cut into it. You know how I hate that. lol
Anyway I covered the front of a Vanilla Card Base with this gorgeous paper called Timeless Elegance. Kind of made it easy for me to pull this together with the Paper being my major statement. 

Our Technique this month is Floating Re-Inker and I love doing that. You just don't know how the color will spread but it's awesome. 

I featured the Flower from "You've Got This" and did my little floating color on it. 
Cut it out and placed it onto my black oval along with the sentiment from it embossed in black as well onto Vellum. Kind of understated but there. 

Now onto my Doily and Ribbon. You know we don't make Seam Binding Blush Blossom Ribbon or Doilies so I had to make them. 

See here for details. 

I then let dry and tied a double bow using my ever so handy Magic Bow Maker 
(available on my blog at the top) 

Product List
Please let me know if I can help you with any of your Stamping Needs. I'd love to help. 

Ready for some more fun Projects with this fabulous Technique?

Hi Everyone,
Oh my goodness we are in the midst of spring and I had to share my fun Garden in Bloom Card with you. Bright and fun and so much color going on. Just like outside in my neck of the woods for sure. Trust me I know Pollen when I see it and it's EVERYWHERE! So to take my mind off that and the havoc it's playing with me....I decided to do something fun and colorful. Hope you like it.

What a burst of color huh? 
I love-love-love how it came out and all the brightness and depth that are involved. Don't you?

I think Garden in Bloom is one of my all time fav' bright and cheery. You can make it serious if you have to. lol
Wonder if they will retire this set this year...will find out in a few days...hope not but just to be on the safe side you might want to get yours ordered. the possibilities are endless. Really!

How would you like the Tutorial for this? Just place an order on my website and I will send you a Project Sheet for it with all the details. That simple. 

Here are the supplies I used. I hope you find it helpful.

Autism Matters Blog Hop

Welcome to a Very Special Blog Hop! 
Last year I had an idea and I gathered some of my very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Friends to help me do Charity Events all over the country. In addition we did Blog Hops to raise awareness and help those affected by Autism. 
Did you know?
   1 in 50 Children living in the US has a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. 
Help me show support for those with Autism as well as their Caretakers (Parents). I hope you find it in your Heart to donate below, simply by clicking my Donate Button. No amount is too little and every $1 is appreciated. 

Today's Card is my version of how I feel about the Mom's out there dealing with Autism. 
You Truly Warm My Heart!

I'm featuring the "Helping Me Grow" Set for this card. 
Thought it was appropriate as these Mom's and Dad's do just that! 
I also used the Timeless Textures set for a subtle Background on the image piece. Stamped them in Smoky Slate. So subtle but makes a statement I think. 

Can you see the flower petals ....I stamped the image twice and colored with Calypso Coral. I then cut out the bottom four petals and adhered to the top of the bottom petals on the image piece with glue dots curling them a bit too. 

That's it for today.....I hope that you will follow along on this Incredible Blog Hop and Donate below if you can. Remember every $1 counts.

I Thank You from the bottom of my Heart

She's so talented!
