Lilac Gift Set

Happy Friday! You still have time to play in our Power and Spark Challenge. Check out all the details HERE! Hope you can play along! 

Today I am going to share with you a gift set that I made for a friend. Well I am going to show you one of the cards, the rest you have to wait for.  ;-)  This box was super easy to create using the Envelope Punch Board. I have a tutorial if you have one want to create your own box. Check out my Envelope Box tutorial and create your own gift set. I sure am enjoying this board since I dusted it off a few weeks ago. All the things you can make with it are awesome. 


Our newest French Lilac set is a beautiful drawing of Marcy's and one that I have colored several of already. The front I have delicately cut around the blooms and added them to the front of the box. The wood grain paper makes this look cool with the Lilac I thought. Added a circled punch thank you sentiment from the set Dynamic Duos: Glad and Gerberas. A sheer ribbon bow with a few sequins. Voila. My first card in the set has a button twine wrapped around the bottom that is also die cut with a spellbinders die you will see later. Easy Peasy and what a fun gift set! Thanks for stopping in today.

Serenity is nice, if you remember it

Good morning! Something about this prayer just eludes me at times, how about you? You would think reading this, seeing this and knowing this it wouldn't but it does at times. Aaaahhh... Guess that is why we are a work in progress, right.  ;-)  


This stamp is called Serenity Prayer that I stamped onto white card stock. Die cut a Spellbinders oval frame around it and textured the background panel. Added some Cherry Lynn Flourished swirls die cut in white also, and a few of my remaining dark eggplant prima's my friend Pat made me. Voila!  Hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Thoughts


This sweet Gruffies (now at Stampendous) called Lilac Bear was asking to be colored this weekend so I grabbed my Copics and colored.  :-)  He is stamped on white card stock and die cut with a Spellbinders frame. The House Mouse and Friends Blog Challenge this week  is "Friends". These flowers are for my friend and I know she will adore this bear.  I added a fun little fence to the front along with some flowers and petals to the ends. My sentiment has a button and twine combo on the edge. A few scattered jewels and voila!

Soft Camilla's

This weeks Featured Stamper 420 is Sue aka Sue28. Lots of great creations to choose to case. I choose this Bermuda Leaves card to case. I kept the over all layout, large flower. I removed the sentiment, changed the papers, colors and actual flower. Congrats Sue and enjoy your week! 


These Camellia's are a joy to color I think I have said before. You can add such rich color or light as I have here with soft pinks and greens. Simple Spellbinders oval for the frame shape that is popped up on dimensionals. I then did a few simple layers with card stock and wrapped a ribbon seam across the base. A few pink sequins in the corners and voila! Easy Peasy. Hope you can play along this week!

Thinking about Lilacs you say...


Happy Friday! Did you see the newest Instant Garden Release last Sunday? This beautiful French Lilac was the show stopper this release. You want to print and color this up now I see. Check it out in the Power Poppy Store HERE


My French Lilacs are printed and colored with Copics. I then delicately cut around the blooms so that I could pop it up on dimensionals. This is a rather flat rate card (something I am working on as of late) with a simple Spellbinders decorative oval for the frame. A few jewels to the corner and a ribbon bow. Voila! 

Be sure to check out the Bloom Brigades creations:

You make my heart sing

Good morning! Ever need just one of those easy peasy cards that just says hi and not a lot of fluff? Well today I have just that, using Good Thinking: Love Notes.  I stamped the hearts in red and pink along the left side and added the arrows over the top. I then added a Spellbinders die cut edge and just a few jewels around the sentiment. Really this came together in about 5 minutes. I need more like this, don't you?


Be sure to stop by tomorrow and check out the Bloom Brigade's latest blooms.  :-)  Hope you have a wonderful day!
