Curtain Call Wishing Well Challenge

Good Morning!

This is for the ongoing Curtain Call Challenge - the inspiration photo was so pretty I had to accept the challenge :)

I inked up my woodgrain embossing folder with Tea Stain and Black Soot distress inks, misted it with water and then laid my cardstock on top. I didn't run it through my Grand Caliber because I just wanted the pattern, not the embossing.....

Then I diecut and stamped with my Garden Grace stamp set and adhered it to my woodgrain panel. Using my new - and so cool - Wet Paint dies, I diecut the word "happy" from Harvest Gold cardstock, and adhered it onto my panel.

The sentiment, inspiration, is from Phrase Play #1 stamp......

Oh crap, I think I am coming down with a cold or something......booooo....time for a nap.....

Orange You Glad!??...and a shameless post....!

I had to buy this Fresh 'n Fruity stamp set from Reverse Confetti when I saw the sentiment! My brother used to terrorize me with this little joke when we were kids.....Drove. Me. Crazy.

There is a little twist on this old time joke - it's now a birthday sentiment - perfect for today because...TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY...   woohoo!  I know - terribly shameless lol!

I, for one, am so happy to be able to celebrate another birthday - lots of people don't get that chance - and so, this sentiment is perfect for me!!

This little Sweet Treat Tent creation also "doubles" - haha! for the Time Out Challenge this week - "Double The Joy!" - to use two of something in your creation- make sense?

I also layered it up a bit with the Diagonal Stripe Pretty Panel Die - cut TWICE - another double! - once with white cardstock and once with some pretty glittery pink cardstock - so bright and cheery!

Such a wonderful day - don't you think??!!

Case Study Challenge #209

Time for another Case Study Challenge! This week the inspiration is from Debby Hughes - I love Kraft - so this is right up my alley!  So this is Debby's creation - beautiful as always...

For my card,  I had to add a bit of pink - to make it sweet - but of course now I wish I had also stamped a cute little heart or some of other little bitty - never the less - this is what I came up with -

I really like this stamp set from Papertrey Ink- Stitched Sentiments - and I also have used the corresponding dies that are available for this set.

 I added a bit of patterned paper from PTI along the sides and a ton 'o gems.....probably too many - but wait!....can you ever have too much bling?  uhm. no.

Thank you so much for visiting today!
