Home Sweet Home


I love quaint cottages surrounded by flowers! I created this little yellow cottage with its white window boxes filled with flowers, using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies. The cottage has a white arched door and white arched windows, topped with a shaker tile roof. I plan to fill this little cottage with treats (what else but Lemon Drop candy!). I left the two top panels (roof) open to access the treats and glued shut the bottom. The front door has a Rhinestone door knob and the door does open!!! The Sweet Home stamp set and matching Home Sweet Home Thinlits are a carryover for next year's catalog! Yay! Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment.

Big On Birthdays - #GDP073

Today, I wanted to participate in the Global Design Project Color Challenge - #GDP073. For my card, I used the new Hexagon Dynamic TIEF. Love the depth of embossing you get with this embossing folder. This was the perfect background for my simply stamped birthday message. Making a two-tone colored sentiment, I stamped the Happy in Daffodil Delight. Then inked up the Birthday with Watermelon Wonder. Inked my finger with the Watermelon Wonder (yes, it is messy-but fun!) and dabbed it on the bottom part of the Happy, creating a beautiful two-tone color.
The swish of flowers was colored with a Blender Pen. This card should brighten someone's day with the beautiful, bold colors. Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment!
