PPA201 - Blooming With Kindness

I missed last week's celebration over at the Pals Paper Arts where they celebrated their 200th challenge, so instead of beating myself up for it, I figured to get this week's darling sketch challenge, PPA201 a try.  

Here is my card:
I tried out a different color combination for this card compared to what I normally use, which includes Whisper White, Pool Party, So Saffron, and Wisteria Wonder which I really like after putting it together. Also, using more of this cute DSP, Afternoon Picnic.

This big beautiful flower came from the stamp set: Blooming with Kindness where it gave me an opportunity to mix up my colors. Here is what I did....first inked up my stamp using More Mustard and than I grabbed a sponge dauber and applied in different areas using Coastal Cabana and than used my Pear Pizzazz marker for the steam. Later, I huffed on it and stamped it down. 

Yes, it's Coastal Cabana although you don't see the blue since mixing the 2 colors create a different color. At the end, I used some yellow chalk and applied on top using a sponge dauber as well. Stampin Dimensionals once again came in handy to pop up the center stage and basic rhinestones on opposite corners. Sentiment is from set Wetlands.

MOJO342 - Thank You For You

Finally getting back into the swing and so happy to create, so I thought I would start with getting back to my regular Sunday posting of my Mojo Monday. This one is based on the MOJO342 over at Mojo Monday designed by Julee Tilman.

Also, I wanted to say "Thank you for all those that have stayed with me as a follower and who subscribe to my blog while I've been in recovery of my operation for me to get back on track again so I will be putting together a blog candy for a chance to win a surprise within this upcoming week". In the meantime....

Here is my card:
 As I was looking through my stash of papers, I came across this cute DSP Afternoon Picnic and couldn't understand why I haven't used it, so I went to work. For the base, I used Crumb Cake and went on to use Wisteria Wonder cardstock which I embossed with Needlepoint Border and Adorning Accents Edgelits.

Can you tell what I used here? Well I used Secret Garden to create this cute flowers using Calypso Coral and matching dies. Also, used the paper piercing tool to add a little more decor. Hard to see, but also did some fussy cutting on the flower to create some dimension and used Stampin Up Dimensionals in between. Sentiment came from the stamp set: Four You using Early Espresso ink. What do you think of today's card?
