Contest Winner!


I entered this card at the Rubber Stamp Events show in West Bend, WI. Theme was "Cinderella." I originally sent the card in without the word label and flourish. Barb from Rubber Stamp Events was nice enough to call me to say that my card did not meet the requirements for the contest---must have some stamping. I remade the card and added the stamped label and flourish. The Cinderella and carriage embossing folders were acquired at a garage sale for 50 cents for the set. My card won $50 for 3rd place!!!

The "Dream" stamp is from a set of Stamp N Plus Scrap N word set.  You can order this set by calling LuAnn at:(715) 271-1873

Thanks for stopping by, may all your dreams come

Summer's Fiesta

It's Summertime and the colors are bright, bold and sunny.  I love the happy colors and chose this stamp from Stamp N Plus Scrap N.   The happy flowers were made by my BFF Hedy who fashioned them from seam binding.  The leaves were punched from a Punch Bunch punch that I picked up for 40 cents at St. Vinny's.  The background was dry embossed with a folder by Sizzix.  The colorful gems remind me of confetti from a pinata or fireworks---both items present at a fiesta.

I designed this card for a challenge on Unruly PaperArts.

Hope your Summertime is filled with Happy!.......Paulette

Golfing Days

This week on Splitcoaststampers the Inspiration Challenge is a menswear site.  I chose this light blue shirt with a white collar as my inspiration.  I used a pre-made DCWV card and the image is from a Graphic 45 paper pad.  The sentiment is a Stampin Up stamp.

Hope you are doing something fun on days ending in "y."  Paulette

Happy Birthday, Debbie!

We celebrated my BFF Debbie's B'day with a surprise party this weekend.  This is a centerpiece I made for the party.  The doll was cut from a Spellbinders die and the lettering from  Sizzix dies.

Thinking of you

This card was made for this week's color challenge.  Flower was cut with a Poppy Stamps die.  The negative spaces were colored with Prismacolor pencils were used to color the negative spaces in the die cut.  Sentiment stamp source is unknown.

Have a great Tuesday.........................................Paulette

Wildflower Bouquet

The Try a New Technique challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers is die-cut stencils.  I used the negative of this Memory Box bouquet stencil to randomly sponge the flower design as a background using Ranger Broken China Distress ink.  I added an applique butterfly and some gems as accent.

Have a great week.........................Paulette

Oopsy Daisy

It's Inspiration Challenge day over on Splitcoaststampers.  I picked up the K&co. dimensional flower stickers for 25 cents at a garage sale. The branches were cut with a Memory Box die. My inspiration piece has fish in it but I'm allergic to all seafood so I used the daisy-like flowers, the colors, and the seaweed as inspiration. You could even stretch your imagination a bit and decide the dry embossed background resembles the fish scale pattern. The inspiration comes from this picture.

Happy Saturday.......................Paulette
