Life is Grand with Crackle and Sparkle

I asked Hunter to help me design the card my club would be making because she designs such pretty cards. I told her the main stamp set I wanted to use (Life is Grand) and she put together this beauty – background stamp (Crackle Paint), the springy colors (Grapefruit Grove & Mango Melody), the Sale-a-Bration ribbon, the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I added the sequins, of course. Because I have been on a sequin frenzy lately. I can’t get enough of them! Thank you, Hunter, for not only designing the card, but being a guest at last night’s club meeting!

Country Home with a Coastal Twist for the Joy of Sets October Blog Hop

Banner

I am super excited to be participating in my second The Joy of Sets Blog Hop.  This month’s blog hop features the Holiday Catalog. You undoubtedly are joining me from Kim Oliver’s page and after mine, you’ll head over to Alejandra Gomez’s page. Links are below to help you hop along.

I adore so many products in the new catalog, but I have been absolutely in love with the Country Home suite since the moment I laid eyes on it. I knew I would feature that suite for this blog hop. I’ve made several cards already using autumn colors. You can see those posts here:
Grandma’s Galvanized Country Home
Tin Tile Country Home
Country Home with the Watering Can
Country Home with the Milk Jug

This time, though, I wanted to brighten it up and show that it is a beautiful set that can be used all year long. This is perfect for the spring or summer time as well.

Coastal Country Home
Here’s a close up of the flowers so you can get a better view of the Wink of Stella I added to them. The shimmer from that, along with the silver detail in both the Galvanized Clips and the Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine  really makes it stand out.

Jar of Flowers for Mother’s Day

It’s pretty obvious who this card was given to today. My mother is a wonderful woman that is always there for me. I love her tremendously! She bought me the Jar of Love bundle for Christmas last year, so I thought it would be fun to use it for her. Yellow, green and blue are her favorite colors and I threw a splash of pink in there for good measure. It was a little time consuming with all the die cutting, but she is totally worth it!

Cardstock:  Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper:  Subtles Stack

Delicate Birthday Blossoms

And today’s card is the second one I had my fun group of ladies at church make. This one features the Emboss Resist Technique.  It was more involved, which is why the entire class ended up being about 3 hours. Bless them for putting up with me for that long! I had them emboss the Delicate Details stamps in white and then use sponge daubers to add color. I also had them use the daubers to add a little bit of Peekaboo Peach to the Daffodil Delight flowers on the front. So bright and springy!

Ink: Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Versamark
