Lavender Birthday

Hey all! A recent card creation! Crazy busy over here but needed to create one to send to a friend! 

And first, an update on our crazy! We are moving from our farmstead in Nebraska to Kansas, near Manhattan. This sunflower is going home and couldn't be happier! Stamping will still happen here but know it will be very sporadic until we're completely moved and settled. Hoping to be moved by June or so, but who knows how long settling will take :)

Card base is Gorgeous Grape, accent of Basic Black and a White background. I textured that background with the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder (a FREE SAB item!). I then stamped the Painted Lavendar flowers in Gorgeous Grape and stem in Garden Green and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. 3 of the larger flowers, one of the full stem. Those are attached with dimensionals and glue dots over the base. I tied a black/white check ribbon around the stem. The saying is from Artistically Inked and is stamped on a banner from the Stylish Shapes die set. Banner is attached over the stem with dimensionals. A few purple Shimmer Gems finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by all! And thank you to those who have ordered during Sale-A-Bration! Just about a week left! Don't miss out on all the great free things!! Remember too the GREAT Mini Catalog that is current, and that we will start winding down the Annual Catalog shortly. Get things NOW so you don't miss out!!

Meadow Bubble

Happy Saturday all! I snuck in a quick creation last night! Sometimes it is good for my sanity :)

I browsed a few current challenges before I went up and settled on the color challenge at TGIF Challenges. Here is my card

And their challenge colors.

Bubble Bath, Vanilla and Real Red. I have a sample for inspiration that resembles this but very different colors. I used the retired Watercolor Shapes for the background, some are Bubble Bath, some are Real Red stamped off once. Over that I stamped the floral image from Quiet Meadow and the saying in Early Espresso. Card base is Bubble Bath, accent layer of Early Espresso and background is Very Vanilla. I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers along with some Bubble Bath ink, and then red rhinestones under the saying and in the flower centers. Not too bad!! Not colors either I would normally gravitate too! Good reason to try a challenge - get out of your comfort zone!!

Have a GREAT weekend all! I'm battling the stamp room today. Trying to organize and purge in advance of moving and getting house ready to show. Wish me luck!
