Dragonfly Dreams!

Peach is not my favorite color.....ok, to be honest, its one of my least favorite I had to force myself to use the new Peekaboo Peach in a card design. lol. Well.....I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as painful as I thought it might be and I find I don't mind this shade too much. :-)

The dragonfly from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set was the perfect option for blending Peekaboo Peach and Fresh Fig into the wings! Top that with a little of the Wink of Stella glitter brush to add some sheen to the wings (hard to see in the pic) and you have a fun card!

Hope this inspires you to reach for your least favorite colors and give them another try! :-)

~Happy Stamping!

Greatest Dad!

Who loves the Wood Grain Designer Series Paper pack?! I do!! It has almost every shade of wood you can find! I just received mine and had to dig into it immediately....and of course come up with a B'day card for my kids to give to their Dad. This month marks his 46th B'day....and he's just as wonderful as the day I married him!

Happy Birthday to my amazing husband!!

I used some recently old and some new in this card.....even if you don't have all the stamp sets used here, I hope this will give you some ideas on how to incorporate the wood grain DSP into your card layouts. Have fun with it! (I used white embossing powder for the "You're the Best' saying which came from the recently retired set Urban District, the star embellishments came from the retired Urban Underground and the word "dad" came from the Family Reunion stamp set.)

     ~Happy Stamping!

Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink inspired me here.....and I really like the new Lovely Words Thinlets die cuts! Love the multi uses the design allows for.....framed or not. :-)
