Patriotic Summer Decor

13 Jun
Few things conjure up thoughts and memories of summer then 4th of July, don’t you agree?
I love 4th of July festive colors and indoor/outdoor decor but don’t have much of it.
I created this little plaque to start my own collection of 4th of July decor.
I started with a plain piece of wood and covered it with some paper from Authentique Paper’s Genuine line.
I then added to the background using the hearts from the stamp set called Gratitude and embossed them with Metallic Platinum Sparkle.
All the butterflies are from the wonderfully fun set called Build a Butterfly.
Each butterfly and coordinating smaller butterflies are embossed in the following 3 powders:
I love the way this turned out…what do you think?
Do you like to make things for the holidays?
What have you got planned for the summer?
I just hope to get through the day without melting!!
I hope you have enjoyed today’s post.

Wowzers with {ippity}

6 Jun
I was getting ready to make my post for today and saw that there was one day left for Heather’s challenge on the Chick Challenges Blog and wanted to hurry and participate.
Here is the sketch for the challenge.
I rotated the sketch to the left and used it this way.
I am using the set called BECAUSE OF YOU.
The color combination of this card follows the challenge that is up at the HIPPITY WITH IPPITY blog.
 In addition to the colors it needed to be a wedding, anniversary type card.
 This was a fun color combination to work with, way out of my normal zone.
When the card flap is opened, you can see my loose interpretation of the sketch.
I made this for that someone special in my life!
I hope you have enjoyed my interpretations of the 2 challenges.  You still have time to join the one going on at the Get Hippity with Ippity site.
Here is the link for that!
Also…………….
Remember our BLOG HOP is coming up!
Here is the Facebook link to get all the details!!

Thank you also to WOW Embossing Powders…for the PERFECT color embossing powder for this!
I used EARTHTONE Blueberry on most of my embossed images!!

Wednesday Wowzer

It has been a whirlwind of a week for me and things have calmed slightly enough for me to create for today’s post.
Today I am using one of my favorite {ippity} sets called:
I made this card to go along with the challenge over on the
I call this card a 4 square card.
By no means did I make the card up, but the directions I had from a well published book were so lousy,
I had yo recreate the card by sheer luck.
It gathers and closes and opens like a box lid.  Here is what it looks like on the inside opened up.
You can put what ever kind of sentiment or note you want to on the inside.
On the front you have 4 mini panels to decorate.
You can use it as a large panel or break it down into 4 small ones like I have.
What do you think?
Isn’t this a cute card and pattern?  And those flower stamps??  Get OUT!!  They are the best!!
Gotta love {ippity}!
I also want to point out the delectable goodies from these other companies I am using with this project.
All embossing powders are by Wow Embossing Powders.  Love the glitter ones especially!!
All paper is from Momenta. Kaleidascope
Square die and floral embossing plate by Cheery Lynn Designs.

2 for 1 card with Cheery Lynn Designs

Today I am sharing 2 cards I made, just for this post.
On one of the cards I have used a new stamp I just got from {ippity} stamps, so I decided to use a sketch on an {ippity} challenge blog.  Here is the sketch.

Here is my first card.
It is a pretty simple sketch.  Since I am using some very bright and colorful MOMENTA papers, I kept my embellishments to a minimum.
Let me know how you like my flower.  If I get enough responses..maybe I can do a tutorial on how I made it!  Leave a response in the comments if you’d like me to do a tutorial.
 Here is the card I made with my itty bitty Unity stamp set called Adventurous.
I used the same sketch.  The dies I used are as follows:
Here is a picture of them both together.
All my papers are from Momenta and all my embossing powders are by WOW EMBOSSING powders.
I am so thankful I have so many fun products to work with.  I hope you enjoyed how I combined different products today and that you also enjoyed the cards I have shared today.
Be sure to say YAY or NAY to the idea of a tutorial on the flower in my first card on this post.
Have you visited our new CHALLENGE blog yet?
Here is the web address:
Our current theme is THINK SPRING.
I think my cards were also inspired by the theme!
Thanks for stopping by today.

Wow Embossing TEAM POST – The GLITTER GIRLS!!

7 Apr

With my fun job over at WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS…we all have teams that we are on.

My team is called THE GLITTER GIRLS and today is out team post to WOW you.

For this layout, I used stamps from the two sets called, Is it a bird? and Call Me.

 I also used three different powders: Earthtone Olive, Earthtone Blueberry and Primary Bark.

These colors matched perfectly with Authentique Papers I used.  Since I took these pictures right before I headed up to the Authentique Paper offices, it is kind of nostalgic that I used their papers.

 I used the large stamp from CALL ME to add to the overall background of my base papers and for the papers I mounted my pictures with.

 For my journaling card I used one of the trees from the IS IT A BIRD? set.

 Also for the journaling card I used my embossing pad to adhere the embossing powder to the edge.

I hope you liked this layout!  I was so shocked at the shear innocence and beauty I caught in this picture of my daughter with the eleven-foot marble Christus statue.
The original was sculpted by the Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen.  You can read more about the statues history here.
I do have to share another of the pictures I took that day.  I could have used this one also, but the layout would have had a completely different feel.
Here is the picture I am talking about.
What do you think here thoughts are in the above picture??
Anyhow, I love the picture above just as much, again is shows the pure magic and innocence of a child.
Now, I would love for you to head on over to the WOW EMBOSSING POWDER BLOG and see what the other glitter girls have made.
They are all so talented, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Have a great weekend all you lovely people:)
Ta ta for now!

“All DOLLED UP!” with Cheery Lynn Dies and WOW Embossing Powders

6 Apr
Today I am using my Cheery Lynn Dies along with some fabulous stamps and embossing powders from Wow Embossing Powders by the lovely Suzy West.
I cam across this adorable bookmark on Etsy:
I always look at things and think..ooh, I could do that even though I do not have the exact supplies the original was made out of.  With all my Cheery Lynn Designs dies, I knew I would be able to make my own version of this Japanese Kokeshi doll.  I also knew I wanted to use all of my WOW EMBOSSING GLITTERS and WOW STAMPS to accentuate the patterned papers I was going to use for the doll.
Here is my version…
My doll is much bigger than the bookmark and I have turned it into a plaque rather than a bookmark.
For the doll and clothing I used Scalloped Circle Stackers and Scalloped Oval Stackers.
I enhanced the dies and patterned paper with the Wow Embossing Powders and Stamps. You can see the sparly patterns on the dress and the background and I used one of the WOW STAMPS from the “CALL ME” for the doll’s hair.
The flower and lace embellishments are made with the dies called:  Queen Anne’s Lace, Buttons1 and the MediumMiniature Roses.
The final touch was applying the sweet sentiment attached to an individual Pennant.
I just love how this cute little doll turned out and I hope you do also.
