You should have arrived from the fabulous Sukie!! If you are just stopping by, you'll want to head to Craftin Desert Divas so you don't miss any of the fun!! A complete blog line up is located for you below my post in case you get lost along the way.

And now for my project....


I used the new Celebrate Freedom for my card today. The papers are from Bo Bunny's Anthem stack. The stamp is a Stampendous Blossom Beauty stamp and I've colored her with Prismacolor Pencils. I just love this stamp and the matching flowers. I have my sweet friend Diane of Nellie's Nest to thank for my current obsession with these Blossom Beauties!! She had me hooked on them months ago, before they were even released :) The big flower on top of her head is the matching Blossom Beauty flower and die.


The two smaller flowers are Memory Box Cherry Blossom dies. I thought the insides kinda looked like exploding fireworks, so I added a few around the card :) The banners are Lil' Inker Stitched Banner dies. The gems are Prima Say It In Crystals.


I used Celebrate Freedom from the stamp set of the same name. I colored in Freedom with my Prismacolor pencils.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Botanical
  2. DL.Art - May Linky
  3. DL.Art - Red, White & Blue
  4. Just B Creative Crazy - May Linky
  5. Craftitude - Anything Goes/Use a Die
  6. Frosted Designs - Stars and Stripes
  7. Divas by Design - Anything Goes
So, all of these amazing new stamps, I had to create something with each set!! With Destination Fun:


A hammock strung among the palm trees on a tropical beach - definitely my idea of Paradise Found :) The papers are from Kaisercraft's Seaside stack. The die is a Taylored Expressions Beach Border die, cut once in heavyweight black cardstock and once in cork.


Paradise Found and...


Mahalo are from Destination Fun.


I am entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Little Scrap Pieces - Show Off Saturday
  2. Simon Says Stamp - Vacation/Travel
  3. Jo's Scrap Shack - Life's a Beach

The Happy Celebrations stamp set has so many awesome sentiments for all occasions. I chose to make a Father's Day card :)


I let the paper do most of the work for this card. It's Fancy Pants Wonderful Day paper and the edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA. The silhouette is a Die-Versions Father and Daughter Sweet Petites die.


The banner is a Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets die. Happy Father's Day is from Happy Celebrations.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simply Create Too #62 - Father's Day
  2. Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

And finally, the fun new Picture This and Picture That stamp sets. For these stamp sets, I created a fun card for my sister :)


The papers are from Prima's All About Me stamp set. The edges were distressed with the Zutter DIA.


Sisters is from the CDD Sugar & Spice stamp set. Funny is from Picture That, as is the frame, which was stamped with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. The image is a Julie Nutting Priscillia Prima Doll stamp. She was stamped on old book paper, colored with Distress Inks and a waterbrush, and popped up with foam tape.

Sweet and the arrow are from Picture This, as is the frame and the decorative corner stamps. The image is another Julie Nutting Prima Doll stamp...Megan. Two Peas in a Pod is from the CDD Perfect Pair stamp set.


Next up on the Line-Up is the amazing Emily.

  35. My sweetest friend, aren't you just a little overachiever?! ;) You are on fire, just like your flowers-turned-fireworks! Each creation is outstanding, filled with so much creativity that I don't even know what to say. The first one kinda blows my mind! What a unique image and I love how you've done the flowers. I just adore those papers and the colored sentiment. The cork scene is textural brilliance, the Father and daughter image melts my heart, and the sisters card fueled my fire to find time to dabble into mixed media. Every card design is beautiful, filled with the detailing and imagination that we all so appreciate about you. Wonderfully done, my dearest Lisa! Have a blessed weekend! :o)

    Hugs and blessings,
    Karen
