Sweet Sorbet Fun Flower

Sweet Sorbet Fun Flower


I decided to play around with some of the sheets of my left-over Sweet Sorbet dsp.  I find that I tend to favor about half of the sheets in any dsp collection.  I may like most of them, but only about half end up being my “go-to” sheets, and the rest just don’t get used very often.  I need to be better about using them all!

I also pulled out my Fun Flowers die.  I haven’t used it in quite a while, and I love it.  I curled the petals a little with my bone folder.  The Thank You pennant is from the Good as Gold Simply Sent Kit.  There was no stamping on this card (gasp!).  But it was still fun to make.

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Fun Flowers Thanks — FabFri16

It’s time for another Fab Friday challenge.  This week we have a color challenge for you, and I love these colors together:

I continued my use of the This and That Epic Day dsp — I’m addicted, remember.  I even used it for another card tomorrow, so I hope you’re not sick of it.  Don’t worry, I recognize I have a problem and I will force myself to put it away and not use it next week (at least not most days).

Fun Flowers Thanks

I pulled out my Fun Flowers Bigz die, which I hadn’t used in a long time, and embossed the flowers with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and spritzed them with Crumb Cake ink.  I think I’m getting addicted to that Color Spritzer tool, too.  🙂  Uh-oh!

Enjoy your Friday and stop by the Fab Friday Challenge blog to see what the other designers made.

It’s Good to try New Things

I tell my kids all the time, “It’s good to try new things.  How will you know if you like it if you don’t try it.”  So I decided to take my own advice and try the color challenge over at The Paper Players.

This is definitely not a combination that I have ever used before, so it was a good challenge for me.

I sprayed some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on the flowers.  It’s always hard to get the full effect of that in a picture though.

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
