FMS 319

Good evening. I'm posting for:

I saw a gift bag the other day. It was pink and had metallic
gold polka dots clustered at the top of the bag and they
waterfalled down the bag and lighten some. I
thought what a great idea for a card front. I played
around some and here is the result.

At first I was going to use black as my card body but
then decided the white had a cleaner look.

Stamps: Petal Pallette
Paper: White, Melon Mambo,
& Pink
Gold Embossing Powder
Gold Sequins

SSC #170 Alternative

Hello again. Funny story to share...
I originally made this card for SUNDAY STAMPS
challenge as a DT inspiration card. 
After I made it, I realized I used the
same base color (Flirty Flamingo) for my last DT card :0.
So I hurried and made the card you see 
on the SS blog. I guess I'm a little infatuated 
with Flirty Flamingo right now!
And that's's  a beautiful color.
Anyway, I wanted to share the card since I did
take the time to create it for the
SUNDAY STAMPS challenge.

Hop on over to the blog and see what
the other DT members created.
Maybe you will feel inspired to join in
once maybe even twice...😉

FMS #318

Hello and Happy 2018!

I thought I would start the new year with a new look
for my blog. I wanted a simple and clean look. And pretty...
that's where the pink comes in :)

Not sure this is the look, but it's a change.

This post is for:

Here is the inspiration sketch:

I haven't had a chance to sit and stamp for
a while and I wanted to use this set for
the challenge so I am getting this posted
close to cut off date!

on the container holding the liquid
yumminess! I fussy cut a few
coffee beans and applied glossy
accents by Ranger and made my
own accent dots.

Paper: Vanilla, Kraft, Chocolate Chip
 Real Red, Black &  DSP White
Ink: Chocolate Chip & Cherry Cobbler
Stamps: Coffee Cafe
Dies: Coffee Cups

a lot of new stamp sets coming to my
craftroom soon!
