Proud Mosaic Turnabout

I just discovered the stamp company Concord & 9th and their awesome Turnabout stamps. I could never explain them correctly, so I’m just going to give you the link to them:  https://concordand9th.com/collections/turnabouts

This card features the Mosaic Turnabout that I stamped in Blueberry Bushel, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Sahara Sand. My friend had shared this photo of birds online and I was inspired by the beautiful colors and just had to make a card with them. And before you comment, yes. I know they are photo-shopped, but it doesn’t matter. Color inspiration can come from anywhere!

Blueberry Cajun Espresso Sand InspirationBlueberry Cajun Espresso Sand
I adore this bold sentiment, which is from the Stampin’ Up Annual catalog set called Friendly Expressions. It is perfect with the Layered Circles Framelits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits and I didn’t feel any other embellishments were necessary. I popped the circle layers up on Dimensionals for added effect. I hope a certain someone living on a certain ship likes it!

Happy Early Caffeine Burst

A friend’s Birthday is right around the corner and I felt the Coffee Cups framelits would be perfect for her. I’ve been using up a lot of my Designer Series Paper lately in my efforts to #cutitdonthoardit, but I was really keeping a tight grip on this particular sheet of coffee rings. I just love it as the background and I’m so glad I used it, along with some Color Theory DSP for the cup. There’s a lot of dimension going on here, as I popped up the Crumb Cake oval, the cup, the sleeve and the lid. I think it allows the thickness of the Bitty Bow to fit in quite well. The Magnetic Platform is a dream come true, cutting out the shapes without the dies moving on me. I hope my friend likes her card as much as I enjoyed making it!

P.S. Big thanks to Hunter for telling me to put the ribbon behind the oval. I struggled a little with that placement!

Happy Acorns

I have had a whirlwind October. I was able to visit my niece and her family in Pennsylvania. From there, we went to upstate New York to visit my son. We decided to add in a day trip to Vermont and Massachusetts. It was a much needed vacation. The one thing I forgot, though, is that I always sneak and leave a card for my son to find after we’ve said our goodbyes. There were some items I needed to mail to him after we got back home, though, so I made sure to make him one. First I made the top card with So Saffron. Hunter advised me that it was a little too feminine and that I needed to make it with a shade of blue instead. Hence, the two cards you see. I love this DSP…it’s too bad it’s retired and I’m almost out of it. Those super cute little acorns crack me up!
