Celebrate The Simple Things

I am in love with this new set from PTI.  
It's called Forest Floor Summer.  



I pulled out lots of new stuff for this one.  The card base was made with the new Noted A2 Pinked Vertical dies, and the bright green piece is the Shape Shifters Oval 1 die.  Aren't those strawberries luscious!

MIM #323 Cascading Die Cuts

This week at Papertrey Ink Stephanie is hosting the Make It Monday challenge, and she showed us a fun technique to put cascading die cuts on our card.


Here's my card


When I watched the video the first thing I thought of was an upside down umbrella with flowers cascading into it.   I had just purchased the Scattered Showers stamp set with several really cute umbrellas and this super cute sentiment.....Don't fret, Dearie!  In this case, there is no need to fret as it is raining flowers.

This Just In

I've been playing with the This Just In set from PTI.  I thought it would be a good one to use for my husbands Father's Day card this year.



I grabbed this up on the night it was released because I am always looking for masculine card ideas.  What a fun image!

PTI 2018 May Blog Hop Inspiration

The 2018 May Blog Hop Inspiration photo at PTI is fabulous!  My mind was racing with ideas.



Here's my card


If you don't know it, I am a gingham girl, so I had to play off of the black and white gingham tablecloths.  I also wanted to use the red, pink and purple flowers and chose the new Seasonal Borders Summer set for that.  Another hit of black and white with the Shape Shifters Circle 1 die and I added some pink rays to help break up the white border using the Sunburst stencils.

Warm Wishes

This is the other new set from the new GKD Stamp TV Kit Sunshine & Love.  It's called Rose Peonies.


I love making my own backgrounds and decided to do that with this set too.  I stamped the flowers with Jet Black Amalgam ink because I wanted to watercolor the flowers.  The flowers were stamped on Peach Bellini card stock and colored with my water brush and Tangerine Twist, Dusty Rose and Grass Green inks.  I added a strip of gingham patterned paper from the Petals & Wings pack.  I used the GKD Double Stitched Circle dies in Dusty Rose and White and added a circle stamp from the Wreath Builders Bundle set.
