Soft Tones

This card did not end up as I had expected. It started out as something else and turned into this.

This is from a Sparkle N Sprinkle set called Fan Geisha. I love this set. I had done an earlier card in black, red, and green. This one was towards a softer color.....subtle tones.
For all of you who are in the cold region, maybe this will remind you of Spring. Spring is very "pink" and cheery.

Don't you jus love the sparkles? This is the Sparkle N Sprinkle semi-transparent glitter called  bubble gum. It is just so sparkly in person. I got a feeling that you will see this glitter all over my carpet and my cards alot.
Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day!

A subtle day

This was such a fun card to make. I love apples, especially Fuji apples. This is another Sparkle N Sprinkle image from the Fall Harvest set. Don't you just love this image??

The words were stamped in Momento tuxedo black ink and floating in Cloud Nine velvet glitter. Still my favorite glitter!

The bown does not show up too well in the picture but IRL it is a good subtle color on a card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day!

Blue Fairy

I love this image. It is a Sparkle N Sprinkle image called Holly the Christmas Friendship Fairy.
I had this image colored a while back and just recently had a chance to put a card together.
She was popped up on dimensionals.
Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day.

Good things in abundance

Good things in abundance. That is how I feel about Thanksgiving. That turkey has me stuffed. My favorite part of the Thanksgiving food was the cranberry. I love cranberry sauce with walnuts. We had made it once with orange juice and it was so good! I like the orange-kick that it gives. What is your favorite part of  the Thanksgiving meal?

This is another Sparkle N Sprinkle set called Fall Harvest. I just LOVE this set! It has so many versatile images.

My not-so-favorite part is the stuffing. I don't know why but I can not find good stuffing yet. I love breads, but just not stuffing. What is your least favorite part of the meal?

Have a lovely Friday and thank you for stopping by.

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

I hope that are all enjoying your Thanksgiving day with families and friends.  I made this card to celebrate the festive day.
This is a Sparkle N Sprinkle set called Fall Harvest. The vegetables are shiny because glossy accents are used on them.

Have a good time with your family and enjoy your day off.

Since we moved to California, we have been missing the Fall season. My daughter loves the Winter season. (She told me today.) I decided to make a card to remind her of the pumpkin picking and apple picking that we used to go to when we were in the Northeast. Here is my attempt.

The stamp is a Sparkle N Sprinkle set called Fall Harvest.
Fall also reminds me of plaids. Warm, bright plaids. I've added matching designer paper to the button.

Hope you enjoyed my version of Fall.

Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day!

Red, black and glitzy

Let me introduce you something shiny...
This is the Sparkle N Sprinkle set called Fan Geisha.

Can you see the lace background? It is made from ultrafine glitter. The red/black glitter lace combo is very subtle. It is not strong, but sparkly enough to get your attention.
I have not been able to have time lately to stamp, but every chance I get, I tried to. When I saw this set, I knew that it will have to be red, black , and gold. Two out of three was not too bad. No gold, but bright sparkly red will do. I substituted green for black. You can not go wrong with this set. It is very versatile and easy to create Asian themes with. Even the flowers can be used for other occassions.
I cut out the flowers and pop them to give them a 3-D look.
Here is the full card. I love the color combo.
The scrollwork on the corners are also bling-ed out in black glitter. I love the new ultra-fine glitter.
Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day!

Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Wonderland Blog Hop! If you hopped here by way of April Williams, then you are in the right place. Otherwise, you might like to start from the beginning to become eligible for 6 fabulous prizes


For my card, I used the "Believe" from the Merry Crows set.

When I think of Winter Wonderland, I think of blue. Christmas is always blue and white, in my mind. Just not in our house. The kids love colors and my husband loves orange. When we do our laundry, I am surprised that they are not all mixed together.

The blue color reminds me of when we went to visit my in-laws down in Florida. My mother-in-law had given us a tour of the various streets within her area where it was decorated with bright colored lights. We got a chance to see all the trees light up in bright-colored lights and all the pretty lawn decorations. It was very pretty when you are out at night. There was this one area where the whole street was lit up in blue lights. I forgot what street it was on, but it somehow made a strong impression to me. That is why this card is a bright blue and all sparkly. What do you think of when you think of a "Winter Wonderland"?
