Lullaby and Good Greetings { sneak peek }

Lullaby Designer Series Paper and a layered label punch for the Good Greetings Sentiment
Pistachio Pudding, Hello Honey Ribbon (somehow, not laying straight in this photo, but perfectly fine in person!! ;->) Coastal Cabana layered with Pistachio, and the sentiment Celebrate from the Good Greetings stamp set (Coming soon, a HOSTESS EXCLUSIVE just for holding a party! More Details coming out with the Holiday Catalog release on August 28th!)

I layered the Coastal Cabana Decorative Label punch at the back, a circle punch of Pistachio with the sentiment stamped off and repeated in Baked Brown Sugar, then the Modern Label punch in Coastal, with the Pistachio Word Label and the sentiment stamped in Coastal Cabana. Whew! Easier done than said! LOL

I'm loving this Designer Series paper. I got it originally for the sweet baby cards and projects, but really the colors are so cool!! They can go with almost any sentiment and occasion. Ya know, if you put the ribbons on straight! ;-P

Happy Crafting!

Perfect Pennants & Lullaby Designer Series Paper

Lullaby DSP and Perfect Pennants, Decorative Dots TIEF and Decorative Label Punch
Lullaby Designer Series Paper. It's not just for kiddies! Although it IS sweet and has those appropriately PC hues of blue & pink; it also has a pastel modern flair, with the golds, corals and teals. And then, of course, there are the great patterns... Like this one! Hearts! 
Subtle but fitting for the sentiment Me & You from Perfect Pennants. Partners in crime, lovers, old married couples, encouragement & support... Me & You can be so many relationships! I think this card says 
"The road may be bumpy, but with our love, me & you have a smoother trip."

I know. It's late. :-D I do tend to be rather  mushy in the midnight hour! 

So! This delicious bit of sappyness has Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Hello Honey, on a baked Brown Sugar cardstock base; with the Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder, Decorative Label Punch, Brights Candy Dots, and the Lullaby Designer Paper. Oh, and the sentiment from Perfect Pennants stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. 

Happy Wednesday!!! 
as always, Happy Crafting!

Good Greetings { sneak peek } and Six Sided Sampler

Hexagon. Your shape is so symmetrical, I am thankful for your order in an un-orderly world. I am thankful for you! 
Yes, I do get punchy sometimes with the midnight crafting! ;) 
Six Sided Sampler in In-Colors 2014-16: Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, and Blackberry Bliss; on a Blackberry cardstock base with a Whisper White layer. The sentiment, from the soon-to-be-released special set for party hosts, is one of the Good Greetings. 
I liked the use of the banner through the punched hexagon, and it works perfectly with these sentiments because of their smaller size. Card CASEd from Fran Sabads layout last year. 

Two-for Tuesday comin' atcha!! Check back this afternoon!

Feel Goods and Bloom with Hope - Pallet Art

There are (more than) a few Pinterest ideas for DIY Pallet art that I have on my To-Do list!! I've been thinking about trying it on a card, too. It takes some bold lettering to split in the pallet look, but I will try it again in the 'reclaimed boards solid look' too!
Anyhow, today's card: 

Feel Goods sentiment The Best Things in Life aren't Things, with a flower image from the Bloom with Hope set. The background stamp is Hardwood.

The colors I used are Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, Baked Brown Sugar, and a splash of Hello Honey.

There are a few techniques I was considering to get the white-washed, distressed look, none of which worked with my creating while watching the baby! LOL So I went with just stamping the Hardwood stamp in Pool Party on Whisper White, and going back over it with Baked Brown Sugar. I colored in the flower using my Stampin' Write Markers.

Definitely a card I will try again, but I am pleased with my first attempt! Got any suggestions for me?
Make it a great Monday!
Happy Crafting!
