Happy Hello

It's another glorious spring day! And I have a another outdoorsy kind of card to share with you. This one was created with a new Fun Stampers Journey summer stamp set called Anchor Me. 

Do I have any sailing fans out there? I love to watch boats from the shore, but I'd rather not be on one! lol  Unfortunately, I get rather sea sick! 

You know...this card reminds me of a vacation Dan and I had at the Outer Banks a few years back. We got to visit some of the east coasts most infamous lighthouses. What beautiful memories! 

To create this stripy background I used some patterned paper from the Nautical Adventure Prints, cut into stripes, folded in half lengthwise and added the card base by applying glue just along the fold. I love the texture it creates along with the twine and wood accent. Hope you enjoy!

Today I'm posting another nature inspired bee-utiful card created with the Fun Stampers Journey Summer Garden Stamp set. 

I love bees! We wouldn't have the amazing variety of produce without them, would we? 

And I think they're quite fascinating to watch swarming busily around the garden! 

For this bee background I used the Vintage Screen stencil, a sponge and Summer Days ink. Keeping my design clean and simple I added just a little Silk, Twine and a mini paperclip for accents.

Enjoy and have a fa-bee-lous day!

Life is Beautiful

I love this planet of ours, full of amazing creatures and exotic places. And I love how one doesn't have to search far and wide to find nature's beauty. If you look, it's right under your nose. Or at the front door! 

For a second time this spring we have a pair of house finches nesting right outside our front door in the light fixtures. And it's wonderful to take a few moments throughout the day to watch this new mama coming and going with food for her little ones! 

Today's card is inspired by nature and all it's amazing creatures, like seahorses. Aren't they magnificent? 

This particular seahorse is from the Fun Stampers Journey Beach Soiree stamp set. Such an easy card to create...just color and die cut the seahorse and add it to a card base that's been sponged with some Whip Cream ink, splattered with a bit of Silk and stamped with a sentiment. Finally, add a few sequins and a bit of Thread and you're done! Now time for a little vitamin - Nature!

Sweet You

Hello! I have a clean and simple card to share with you today that combines two of my favorite new stamp sets from Fun Stampers Journey summer catalog...Too Cool and Summer Fun. 

These work perfectly together, the pineapple with a pineapple pop. Yum! And the sentiment is from a gorgeous blooms stamp set called Sweet You. 

To create this fun and colorful background, I combined a few strips of card stock and die cut them with  Journey Circles and added a portion of the Summer Branch die.  

Accents include a little twine and sweet pink sequins. I love it! How about you?
