Seaside Shore Masculine Card

Good morning! I have a really fun masculine card to share today. I get excited when I successfully create a masculine card... those are hard of me! 

I created this card for a swap I am participating in. I wanted to take a different look rather than the fish in an ocean scene. I created a "Sailor's Know" with the Thick Vanilla Baker's Twine and looped the tag through the twine. And, I included some of the new Burlap ribbon (love!)

And I did include the fish on the inside of course! 

Stamps: Seaside Shore
Ink: Real Red, Crumb Cake and Dapper Denim
Paper: Dapper Denim and Very Vanilla Cardstock, By The Shore DSP
Tools: Big Shot, Tags and Labels Framelits, 1/2” Circle Punch
Embellishments: Thick Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine, Burlap Ribbon
Other: regular office hole punch

Fancy Friday- Back to the '80s!

Hey everybody!! You will not believe what are theme this month for Fancy Friday is!! 
This month, we were challenged to go Back to the '80s! What?! This is an awesome theme. But, I'm not gonna lie- it's a hard one! If I had stopped at a challenge blog and this was the theme, I would have closed the page.. LOL!
But as with most challenges, it really pushed me to work and think and I am thrilled with the end result! 

I chose to use the paint splatter background DSP from the Playful Pallet stack. I added that to a black card base. Then, I watercolored three bright colors (Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie) on Watercolor Paper. When that was dry, I splattered some black acrylic paint. I used the new Large Letters Framelits and cut out the word. I added the You Are from Labeler Alphabet. 

And, to be extra fancy (and because it was a Basic Black card base!!) I decorated the inside too! 

I again splattered a Whisper White cardstock piece and added Washi Tape and a sentiment from Thankful Thoughts in Pumpkin Pie. 

So, what do you think? Can you hop back to the 80s? We'd love to see what you create! Before you go, make sure to hop along the rest of the Fancy Friday crew. Next up is my favorite funny Canadian- Cathy Cains

$43 plus $7 shipping
Create five gorgeous projects using your new Pop Of Paradise clear mount stamp

Mediterranean Cruise- Day 6: Cannes and Nice

Hello everyone! I'm back with another round of photos from our recent Stampin' Up Incentive trip to the Mediterranean Sea! On this day, we landed in Cannes, France (ooh la la!)We didn't book an excursion, so we headed out on our own with the McKays to explore Cannes and Nice. 


Cannes is a very "rich" city and was compared to me with Beverly Hills. We decided to hop on the train and ride over to Nice. But, the walk tot he train station was gorgeous! We kind of wished we had decided to stay in Cannes!


I was excited to ride the train. I haven't ridden a train since my husband was stained in Germany. And we have very fond memories of riding to different cities. 

Luckily for us, Angela speaks French! So, she got us tickets and spoke with (a very snooty) French train station employee and got us to where we needed to go! 

Nice was just as beautiful! The beaches! Just wow! 

There were so many cute shops, but we really just window shopped. 







We put in over 20,000 steps that day just wondering the streets and taking in all the beautiful sights. 



There was one shop that we did go in and I LOVED it! I found several cute things for my kids. I wish I could remember the name!! It was full of bright colored, fun items, some toys, some gifts, some home items. It was so much fun!

Although, I was a bit nervous to venture out on our won (with out a tour group) it was a wonderful day!

Jar of Love Firefly Card

Good morning everyone! I am blogging today from Florida, where I am currently on vacation with my family. We are having a wonderful time at the beach. We stopped in New orleans on the way and the girls loved the swamp tour! It's been a great break from the heat at home and we love spending time as a family. 

Today's card is one I created for an upcoming swap. It features my favorite Jar of Love. 
I stamped the jar on watercolor paper and then did a light watercolor wash in Daffodil Delight. Once it was dry, I stamped the fireflies in Basic Black and colored them in with the Gold Wink of Stella. You can see on the background, I added Gold Wink of Stella on those as well. 

I continued the fireflies on the inside as well! 

Stamps: Jar of Love, Hardwood
Ink: Dapper Denim, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Smokey Slate and Flirty Flamingo, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker
Paper: Dapper Denim, Very Vanilla, Kraft, Watercolor Paper
Tools: Big Shot, Everyday Jars, Wink of Stella Gold, Aquapainter
Embellishments: Delicate White Doliy

Stamp Club To Go Project- Popcorn Treat Box

Hello and Happy Friday! 

As you might have guessed, I was excited to see then ew Popcorn Box Thinlit Collection in the new catalog. i LOVE a good 3D project and thinlits make it super easy! 

This one is great. It's small, which prevents you from paying out the nose to fill it, and easy to assemble! I paired it with the new set called Better Together. It does have a coordinating stamp set designed just for the thinlit, but I didn't end up using it. 

Stampin' Up has a great video showing you how to assemble the Popcorn Box. 


I haven't had any time to film any videos myself lately. We were once again leaving for a week tomorrow to meet my parents in Florida. Hopefully, once I get back, I can start a regular filming schedule again. I do have lots of new things planed and even typed and photographed, but I just can't share them quite yet, but stay tuned! July is going to be GREAT! 

Thanks for stopping by!
