Best Friends


 I made this layout for Soul Scrappers SSQ42 aka Soul Scrap Quest. We were sent an envelope full of goodies and I used all, but one item. I may use that on a card or something else! The paper I chose is from 49 and Market Irrevocable Beauty Efflorescent. Everything on the layout was in my envelope except for my markers and adhesives I used. I used Copics and Stampin' Write markers to color in the Stampin' Up stamped image from Beautiful You stamp collection that must have been discontinued because I can't find it on the Stampin' Up website. I used Copic V04 Lilac to color over the Friends chipboard. I used my Teresa Collins Xyron MegaRunner on the picture, doily, pink butterfly paper, and some of the bigger circles. The picture is of me and Lisa- on the right in red- in July 2020 when she came to visit for a week. I used my Xyron 150 Create-A-Sticker on the butterflies, the smallest circle, and the polka dot strip. I used Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue on the Friends chipboard, the pearls, and the pink burlap square.  The best sticker I fussy cut out of another sticker from Carta Bella Hello Again Collection Kit. I bought the 49 and Market and Carta Bella kits from Tuesday Morning at a cheaper price than you will find them online. This is the first layout I have done in awhile and placed everything where I wanted it before I glued it all down. The pearls were a last minute add on. Have a good week! TFL!

Owl Birthday


I'm entering this card in Challenge #4 with Let's Squash It. The challenge was to use an embossing folder and an animal. I chose Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Bird Crazy Texture Fade embossing folder- it is part of a stamp and die set. The owl with balloons stamp is part of Unity Stamp Company Hugs, Kisses, & Birthday Wishes July 2017 Sentiment kit and the sentiment- happy birthday- is also from the same set. I used Gina K Designs Amalgam ink on both. I colored in the owl with mostly Pastel Copics and Detail Doodlers. The green paper/card base is from The Stamps of Life. The sequins are Smoothie Mix from SpiegelMomScraps. The challenge ends Jan 31 so feel free to join!

Happy Birthday

This is a digital image- Party Bag from Bugaboo Stamps. Click on the link to purchase the digistamp. I used Pastel Copies on most of the image to color it in, I used a Silver GellyRoll pen for the balloon string and ribbon. The background paper is from   The Stamps of Life (TSOL) Smiles collection and the card base is also TSOL cardstock. I stamped happy birthday with VersaFine Black Onyx ink and colored over the block with  Stampin' Up Stampin' Blends Dark Balmy Blue. One thing I learned, Copics bleed through paper and Stampin' Blends don't. The bling is also TSOL. My friend, Jennifer Taylor is having a Stampin' Up (SU) party with Dawn Bourgette, so please click on the SU link to shop with her! NVTNUCKP is the host code to use for Jen to get credit. TFL!
