Holey Moley..... water lilies!!!!

I was just sitting around and this card just popped in my head. 

I LOVE punches, I love to create using punches!!!

I wanted to card to look like it was just held together with the circles.

 Close up of Holey moley.

The card base is Wild Wasabi and I used Melon Mambo inside the card for a little color interest. 
The circle frames were created using Whisper white card stock and 
1-1/4" punch and then used 1-3/4" punch.
I placed the frames onto the card front where I liked them and then used a pencil to draw a line on the inside of all the frames to guide me where I needed to cut the holes into the front. 
I used scissors to cut the holes. 
After making all the necessary cuts I adhered the frames to the front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I created the water lilies using Boho blossom punch and flat back pearls. 

Adhered the lilies inside the circles and stamped with Black Staz-0n the "Thank You" sentiment from Happy Watercolor Stamp set.

Mixed bunch.......

Mixed bunch around here....and I don't just mean the stamp set.
My hubs (Jeff):  he's very meticulous, always plans his day 
(even on the weekends), 
doesn't like change, but a great all around guy!!!! 
Me: fly by the seat of my pants, don't like to plan (that way if something has to be changed I won't be disappointed,  free-spirit and always looking for some new adventure. 
Our daughter (Harlee): She's 14, so she's content just listening to music with her head phones, loves to sing, doesn't let much bother her, 
very social and makes friends very easily and beautiful to boot.
Our fur-baby (Looloo): Eats, sleeps, and just enjoys her time outside. 
Then, we have rabbits that hubs raise to sell and yes, we eat them. 

Mixed bunch, INDEED.  But we have so much fun together and we all love to spend time together.

Now on to the card creation.

I started with a Marina Mist card base.  
Cut a whisper white layer 1/8" smaller.  Used blossom punch and randomly punched 
along the edge of the white layer. 
Using a black sharpie I drew some scribbles along the edge.
Using VersaMark and the Mixed Bunch stamp set I stamped inside the punched layer, removed it and then 
white embossed.  For the flower centers I stamped it black onto a scrap of white and punched them out with 3/4" circle punch. Added dimensional on back and centered onto the flowers.  Then I layered the white panel onto the base with dimensionals.  Using Happy Watercolor stamp set sentiment I stamped it onto a scrap of Marina Mist using black.  Then hand cut a banner.  Added some flat back pearls and also some on the centers of the flowers.

Happy happy happy

Starting the year on a cheerful note.

Hopefully all the flu bugs are gone and we all can start the new year healthy and happy!!!!

This one makes me smile!!!!

I started with a whisper white card base.  
Then I added a black layer and 1/8" smaller is the
 stamped whisper white layer. 
I used Happy Watercolor stamp set for all the stamping. 
The small dots stamp was used to create the background.  I stamped it going from the outside in; over and over until I got the result I wanted using Pistachio Pudding ink pad.
I centered the first sentiment using Strawberry Slush ink pad.  Then I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiments above and below the centered one. 
Top: Pistachio Pudding. 
Bottom: Coastal Cabana
I stamped "pssst..."using Versamark and white embossing powder on Basic Black card stock.
Pennant punch to punch it out to create an arrow-like shape.

Love it!!!!  

Until later, happy campers!!!  Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
