Daydreaming in Ink ...

What do you do when the same, same, same feels tired, tired, tired?  In the words of a beloved G'son who shall remain anonymous, he would quickly state, "I'm bored!"  (As heard in periodic school's-out phone calls.)  😉     

It's a sunny day here, but also pretty humid.  Maybe that's what led to my tropical thoughts ... ...



I know ... Spring is just arriving this week, and here I am with more of a Summery creation.  Oh well ... I could definitely adore being in a tropical locale!  Having lived in the plains my entire life, with only precious little visits to oceans, sand, and plentiful vegetation ... my daydreams often tend to include salt water breezes, waves, florals, and exotic pretties of all sorts. 

~All it took to create a watery cover for the flamingo was an Aqua Pen, a bit of water, and ink smooshed into the lid of my Dapper Denim ink pad.  Literally use a sweeping motion with the brush on the portion of the the watercolor paper where the flamingo will stand.  

~Seems that I've slipped back to my natural layers + popped up dimension with this one.  Stamp off a cluster of foliage before adding the cut versions of the splendid tropical leaves.  I didn't want to add another layered element, so my Misti enabled a perfect placement of the 'Thanks' from the 'Weather Together' stamp set.  All other stamps are from 'Pop of Paradise'.  Both sets are from the current annual SU catalog.  
Psssst!  Just twelve (12) days remain in Sale-A-Bration 2017!  I'll be sending one of these cards to everyone who places their order with my March Host Code QZ7R3NTD before March 31!

A Pop of Hello!

Poppin' in with a card featuring the new Pop of Paradise stamp set plus the already super-popular Pop of Pink designer series 12" X 12" collection.   Truth is, this one all started with a huge thunderstorm that caused a total shutdown of my outdoor yard work ambitions for the day.   

Congratulations to Robin Lee on being the featured stamper over at Splitcoaststampers this week, FS488!  Her This Little Chick card inspired my card today.  As soon as I saw her chick, I knew I wanted to play with the fun flamingo from Pop of Paradise.


The 'Hello' dot is also part of the stamp set, and made an easy way to add popped up interest plus a greeting to the card all at the same time.  It fits the 1 1/4" circle punch perfectly.  A little strip of the graphic dsp was cut to create the little banners.   That little strip along the bottom of the black 'n white graphic dsp?  It's one of the very fun designs from the Pop of Pink Washi Tapes!  

Psssst!  Have you been considering this sweet opportunity to get the starter kit for $99 while choosing $125 in products ... then *adding* 2 new stamp sets at any price range to the deal?  Please let me know, if you have questions or want the full scoop on my exclusive, additional team offerings.  

Happy new week y'all!

A 'Pop' of Thinking of You!

Happy new week, m'friends!
Hope you had a marvelous weekend!  I spent much of it on the working end of a shovel ... hoping to create a couple of large places for planted pretties.  I'm not breaking any speed limits on shoveling ... guaranteed!  

By late Sunday afternoon, I had to stop ... shower just "sounded" so good I couldn't resist any longer.  As soon as the dirt was draining away, I knew I wanted to get to inks, rubber, and paper.  Results?  I'm sharing a peek ahead at the delightful Pop of Pink designer series paper and the Pop of Paradise stamp set!

Both sides of this card feature the Pop of Pink designer series paper ... and there's plenty more to love in the collection for sure.

More than one package of this will play on my stampy table, without a doubt ... it's packed with B&W designs and Melon Mambo mixed with white or B&W on the reverse sides.  I'm deeming this collection as "To Love!"

Topped it off with just a little strip of Silver Foil Sheets and a tiny smattering of sequins from the Metallic Assortment Sequins, adhered with the super Fine-Tip Glue.

Wanna stamp along?  I'm currently setting up my newest online monthly stamp-of-the-month club ... if you'd like to be in on the first round, just email to let me know!   Room for you and a friend or two!  Today's card is an representative of the project tutorials you'll receive with membership.
