Thinking of You Sheltering Tree

I've said it before, but here it is again: this is one of my favorite sets! Guess that should be apparent as I've shared at least 3 cards with it recently! I like the color combo on this one, and the new ribbon!


The card base is Soft Sky with an accent layer of Island Indigo and Whisper White background. The tree base is stamped in Early Espresso, the leaves in Soft Sky and Island Indigo. Thinking of you also in Early Espresso. The ribbon is the new 1/4" Ombre in Island Indigo. Love that! and these subtle colors work well for a Thinking of you card.

Last Bokeh card!

Well, for now anyway! I hope to do it again soon!


This one has no stamping and used the same colors as the last-Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Elegant Eggplant. I used a much lighter touch on this one so you can see the background colors aren't as bright as the last one (HERE). Both work well, just a different look! The background is layered onto Elegant Eggplant. I then added a Whisper White ribbon hoping it would make the circles pop. Then it was layered onto the card base of Melon Mambo. The cutouts are all done using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits set. The flower and congrats are Elegant Eggplant, the butterflies Melon Mambo.

Just For You

Howdy all! Never back as soon as I'd like, but I guess once per week is better than none at all!! Here is a card I started over week ago, and just got around to the final tweaks today. It wasn't quite right the first time, but I hadn't been able to get back upstairs and adjust it.


This was for a color challenge that I found using Smoky Slate, Lemon Lime Twist, Crumb Cake and Whisper White. Always drawn to Lemon Lime Twist! This was a bit of a tough combo as three of those are neutrals. I reached for my previously unused Swirly Bird and coordinating Swirly Scribbles Thinlits set. I chose two of the Swirly images, and the splatter dots for the background. The solid swirl is in Smoky Slate, the open in Lemon Lime, the dots in Crumb Cake on a Whisper White background. I sponged the edge with Crumb Cake before layering onto a Smoky Slate layer. A Whisper White ribbon accents the Swirly Scribbles in both Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White. The saying is from Work of Art and was stamped using the stamp-a-ma-jig on a 1-1/4" punched circle of Whisper White. I layered that onto Smoky Slate (1-3/8"), added a die cut flower and attached with dimensionals. Three other die cut flowers accent the background as well.

All in all, I like how it came out. Will definitely be using this set again! Like the background possibilities and the Swirly Scribbles!

Bokeh Butterfly Thanks

Here is another Bokeh card. Scroll back a few posts if you want to see the details of how I did this! 


This one uses Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay for the background colors. See below for how it looked before I did the Craft White circles. 

I did the circles same as last time, and found I needed to heat set between circle sizes. Once all done, I set it aside for several days before coming back to finish. I cut the large butterfly with the Butterflies Thinlet in Elegant Eggplant. The Thanks at the bottom, from the Thankful Thoughts set, is stamped in Elegant Eggplant over the background (the Craft White blends into it a little, giving it a lighter look than the true color). The ribbon is Bermuda Bay 3/8" Mini Chevron. The background was mounted on Melon Mambo and then a card base of Elegant Eggplant. I walked away from this for a while, unsure that I liked it. When I came back, I decided it was good, but need some bling so I added the rhinestones. Done!

One more of these coming soon! Thanks for stopping by today!! Product details below.
