A Happy Day in Moonlight

Happy Day in MoonlightWhile I had my stack of the new Moonlight dsp out, I made another card with it, this time using the Starburst Sayings stamp set, which is continuing on to the new catalog.  I also used some of the new in-colors — Hello, Honey and Lost Lagoon.  Basic Gray is the other color used here.

Enjoy your Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Happy Day!

I love the Starburst Sayings stamp set.  But I have to say that I always break out into song(s) when I use this set.  I shared before how the “Hello, my name is” stamp in this set makes me start singing a song by Matthew West with that title (you can read about that in this post).  The stamp I used today makes me start singing the song, “Oh, Happy Day,” by Tim Hughes.  You can hear that song here.  So catchy!  And so happy!  There’s even another stamp in this set, “Celebrate,” that makes me want to sing another song, but I’ll save that for another day.  🙂

Oh, Happy DayI wanted to use up some leftover My Paper Pumpkin supplies from last month’s kit.  That’s where the gold glittered dots and the watercolored card stock came from.  I used the Chevron Border punch on the watercolored card stock, popped that layer up with dimensionals, and put a layer of the Gold Foil Sheets underneath.  I also added a little bit of Cherry Cobbler card stock underneath one of the chevrons.

Oh, Happy Day Close UpI attached a little strip of Cherry Cobbler dsp with one of the cute Mini Metallic Clothespins and added some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine.  After adding the focal image/sentiment, I made myself stop.

Well, I’ll be working on our taxes today.  Yuck!  Nothing like waiting until the last minute.  Hopefully your Saturday will be more fun.  Thanks for stopping by!



A Starburst Celebration — FMS123

It’s sketch day over at Freshly Made Sketches, and the CAS-talented Jen Brum has a fun sketch for us:

I knew right away that I wanted to use the fun images in the Starburst Sayings stamp set.  I thought the coordinating Starburst dies would be perfect for the little circles in the sketch.

Starburst Celebration

It seems like whenever I start out with the intention of making a masculine card, I always end up adding some little embellishments that make me feel like I’ve gone a little astray.    On this one, I selected some colors that I thought would make a good manly card.  And I thought the stamps were okay for a guy card.  But then I just had to add some pearls to the centers — I mean, they just needed them!  And then the ribbon — not very manly, but the sketch required it.  So I compromised, and just tied a knot instead of my usual bow.

You really should check out what the rest of the design team did with the sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches site.  I’m always so impressed with everything they make, but this week I am really in awe — such a great variety, and creativity that is just amazing.  I hope you’ll play along with us as we love to see your work too.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, My Name Is

As soon as I saw the stamp set, Starburst Sayings, I immediately thought of the song, “Hello, My Name Is”, by Matthew West.  And as soon as I thought of that song, I immediately started singing it and it was stuck in my head for the rest of the day.  Do you know that song?  If you don’t, here’s a link to the video.  Be warned though — it is super catchy and you just might be singing it all day.  But that’s ok — the words are so meaningful and full of truth, and the song will just make you happy.

As soon as I got this set, I knew I had to make a card for a sweet friend.  We were roommates at convention last summer, and it seemed like one of us was singing this song all of the time, as it was on the radio so much back then.

Child of the One True King

I printed “Child of the one true King” on my computer and pasted it on the card.  That comes from the chorus of the song:

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I’ve been saved, I’ve been changed, I have been set free
“Amazing Grace” is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King

This is a fun stamp set.  Not only does it have some great sentiments, but it also coordinates with the Starburst Framelits dies.  Love them!
