Garden Pleasures for SUOC.

 Hello everyone: As always, I hope and pray you and your families are doing well, keeping each other healthy and safe.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I often go to eBay to look for old and discontinued stamp sets that were available long before I started stamping, this card is created with one of them.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I added a panel in the back to write a little message.


And this is what I used.
Stampin' Up! "Garden Pleasures" (2002)
Stampin' Up! "Scene in a Garden" for the clay pots on the back. (2009)
Stampin' Up! "Easter Influences" for the Cherry Branch (2008)
Stampin' Up! "Delicate Details" for the border on the back (2017)
Prismacolor pencils.
For the "Screen Divider Fold" I follow a tutorial from Connie Stewart from SimplySimpleStamping, thank you, Connie.

I want to play with:



 
Creative Knockouts #444 "Spring is in the Air"

Thank you for visiting me today and for your comments, they are very much appreciated.

Until next time, stay healthy and safe.

More Scraps for TFC......

Hello everyone: As always, I hope you and your families are doing well, staying healthy and safe.


THE FLOWER CHALLENGE has arrived at the halfway point so I created this card, using scraps from the first card I created for this challenge, to inspire you to come and play along with my teammates and me in our gallery.



********************************************

This is the inside.



This is what I used.

Altenew "Beautiful Day"

The Washi tape inside the card is a recycled strip from a card my granddaughter received from a friend to seal the envelope, I just couldn't see it in the garbage, LOL!!

The frame is a leftover from the first card I created for this challenge, I just trimmed the edges to fit it on the card base.

I'm leaving the inside without a sentiment to stamp it later as I need it.

I hope you come and play with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE and use your scraps of DSP to create your card and join us in our gallery, we can't wait to see what you create.

Thank you for visiting me today and for your comments, they are very much appreciated.

Stay healthy and safe.

With all the bad things going on in this World now, I escape to the World of Fairies in my mind, is a soothing and beautiful thing I do every time I color one of them.

The SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge's theme for the next 10 days is "Something that Flies", I just love all the little Fairies on this Penny Black set.

Anything Goes for Retro Rubber.

 Hello everyone: As always, I hope and pray you and your families are doing well, staying healthy and safe.

*********************************************


The RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE for the next 10 days is one of the most popular ones, "Anything Goes", so you have free range on what you create, keeping in mind that you need to use stamps that are older than one year.

This is what I created.


This is how the boxes look when you open them.




I made these boxes following this video for the big box and this video for the little box, both created by The Paper Pixie.

These boxes might look a little complicated but believe me, they are super easy to create because Julie has the amazing ability to explain everything as she is making these boxes so her directions on the video are a breeze to follow.

I hope you give them a try, you'll get addicted.

This is what I used:

For the Red Box: Power Poppy "Poppies" (2015)

For the Blue Box: Power Poppy "Countryside Bouquet Delux" (2014)

I hope you visit the RETRO RUBBER challenge blog for more inspiration from my awesome teammates.

Remember to use stamps that are older than one year.

Thank you for visiting me today and for your comments, they are very much appreciated.

Stay healthy and safe.

Watch out!!!!!!

 Hello, everyone: As always, I hope and pray you and your families are doing well, staying healthy and safe.

**********************************************************************

I have a card created with one of the cutest and funny DSP from Stampin' Up!

For those who know me well, it's no secret I don't like double-sided DSP, most of the time, the designs on both sides are so beautiful that it would be impossible for me to put one under so I avoid buying this type of paper but, the "Sweet Stockings" DSP was irresistible, and fortunately, the underside of the paper had images that were easy for me to put under.


******************************************************************
This is the inside.


******************************************************************
And this is what I used:

Stampin' Up! "Playful Pets" DSP (retired­čśó) I fussy cut those two kitties.
Power Poppy "Sassy Succulents" sentiment in front (retired­čśó)
Stampin' Up! "Free as a Bird" for the sentiment inside.
Stampin' Up! "Pampered Pets" cling stamp set, for the images inside.
I want to play with:



Thank you for visiting me today, your comments make me happy and are greatly appreciated.

Stay healthy and safe.
