Shabby Thanks

Hello, Its Thursday...that is on odd day for me to be off work and playing in my scrap room. However, it was slow today and....I started my vacation a day early! YAY! 
So, this morning I wanted to make a Mixed Media card for a challenge over at I'm still feeling nautical and so that Is why I used teal. It reminds me of the beach and water. I titled it thank you because you can never have enough thank you cards in your stash. :)

The swirl was a metal stencil that I bought a while ago at my local convention from dreamweaver. I then used embossing paste, heat embossed and distressed inked it with Tim holtz. I used a couple of spellbinders diecuts and a few Cheery Lynn Designs. The flowers are from Recollections and the Resin frame is from Prima. The cute butterflies stamps are from Heartfelt Creations and I diecut them with an exclusive spellbinders diecut. 

The papers are from Teresa Collins and the stamp I bought a super long time ago...
Sorry cant remember who? I added some tulle and tiny pearls throughout. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Christmas In July With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi, It's Lisa here this week sharing with you another new card for Cheery Lynn Designs. It was inspired by this week's challenge "Christmas In July" I really don't think about Christmas this soon, but I think it really is a great idea to get started on those Holiday cards. So now I think I will make a few this month. Hopefully, then I'm not stressed and scrambling last minute. :)

I really wanted to make a big poinsettia using the Rose Strip. I diecut the strip three times and used a small circle for a base then I glued them using the largest to the smallest leaves and added a pearl in the center. There are also green Rose Leaves behind the flower. 

I used Snowflakes Set 2 in two different colors with pearls in the centers and behind the Paris Sign 1 "Happy Holidays" sentiment (layered with two colors) is the Musical Staff Mesh Border. Draping down from the Poinsettia a placed Holly Lace Flourish and I also placed one across the top. 

The christmas trees are a stamp and I fussy cut them out. I added liquid applique and flower soft for snow. The tiny flowers are from Baby's Breath Flower Kit and I also added tiny pearls in the centers.

The Shabby Tea Room DT Call : It's Your Day

I know it is late in the day, but I decided that I would enter this card into The Shabby Tea Room Design Team Call. I have been thinking about it for the past 2 weeks....I couldn't remember if I had a teapot somewhere? Well after finally reading that I was close to the end of the calling, I looked through all my cricut cartridges and found ONE teapot! Whew! This card took me about an hour to make...sometimes I think better under pressure? lol 

I crimped the teapot and chalked the edges with brown ink. Two white flowers and three pink roses were placed on top with three pieces of baby breath diecut from Cheery Lynn Designs. The doily diecut in the background is also from Cheery Lynn Designs. I distressed the two layers of pink papers with my Distrezz It All. Love that machine! 

I added pink roses sheer ribbon and white lace on the top and bottom of the card. The tea cup was cut with my cricut and I chalked the edges and the top for tea. The I added a bit of liquid applique to the edge for a little froth.  I used a tiny stamp with the same brown chalk. Lastly, I was thinking about the cookies and cakes....then I remembered that I recently bought some Melissa Francis Resin pieces... Perfect! 

The beautiful shabby teapot photo inspiration! 

Thanks for stopping by and wish me luck!

This Hope...

Hello everybody!
I'm so excited for it to be the weekend again! Yay!
I'm also excited that I only have one more week until my vacation begins...
Today, I'm sharing with you a new card for Viva La Verve June Week #4. As soon as I seen the sketch I knew I wanted to use the nautical stamps and diecuts from Verve for the circles in the background. The papers are from Fancy Pants "Making Waves" I recently bought them from It really is a fun summer paper collection. 

I added some silver stickers in the corners and on the wheels. I also added some blue yarn and a little ribbon with yarn. 

Between the layers are pop dots. The stamp set must be one of favorites this year because the possibilities are endless! 

Here is the great sketch! Thank you Amber! 

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Lisa

You Are Beautiful With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi, Its another Wednesday with Lisa. Today, I'm sharing with you a new card for Cheery Lynn Designs. This week challenge is "anything goes" so I thought I would try to make a scenery in the summer. I used a Window, Ivy, Little Flowers, Butterflies, Fence, Grass, Clouds and A Little Bicycle. Whew! 
I haven't made a scenery card before, but I have seen many of them. Giving it a try myself, I can really appreciate all the love that goes into each tiny piece. 

There are 7 sets of red flowers diecut from the "Baby's Breath Flower Kit" I added liquid pearls in the center of the flowers. There are 4 "Ivy Flourishes" 2 layered on each of the top corners. The "Victorian Picket Fence' was cut to fit and 2 layers of "Grass Border" on top. They were also cut to fit the 5 x 6 card. The "Window A" was diecut in white and then glued to Kraft Cardstock. I then cut the window pieces out in a red patterned paper and then in the red cardstock for the windows. The red cardstock was crimped to represent window curtains. I then layered the top of the window with "Dutch Daisy Set" and finished it with a bit of black cardstock cut thin with scalloped scissors. 

The "Little Pink Bicycle" was cut 3 times in red, black and Kraft and layered on top of each other. I added 2 little clouds from "Clouds and Rain" and printed up the title from my computer. The tiniest butterfly from " Mini Dimensional Butterflies" was diecut in black cardstock, I added 5 of them to finish this summer card.

Happy Father's Day! Today, I'm sharing with you a new card with a sketch from Cardabilities #125. When I seen the Flag stripes, I was thinking nautical theme. My father passed away several years ago, but he loved the beach just as I do. So that is how the flowers were Incorporated with the banner from Our Daily Bread.

I used 3 diecuts from Cheery Lynn Designs. The Ship's Anchor, Lighthouses and Pierced Banner. The papers I bought from Michael's called Seaside Yacht DCWV. I also placed one of my favorite diecuts from Memory Box Rue Le Flourish under the flowers. The flowers are in the dollar bins at Michael's too. 

No distressing on this card, just straight edges for a clean look. I did add thin pop dots under the anchor. 

Here is the sketch! Thank you Karen. 

Hope everyone has a nice day today. 
Be sure to stop by this week for more cards....
Hugs, Lisa

Happy Birthday

Hello again! 
Today, I'm sharing with you a new card made for Viva La Verve June Week #3. I wasn't sure what I was going to do at first, but I knew I wanted to use some fun colors. These papers are from My Mind's Eye "Here is Happy". 

I added pop dots between the layers for a 3D look. Can you believe no flowers or bling? Guess I didn't need it because the papers are so festive! I used a Martha Stewart punch for the drippings. 

The "happy Birthday" diecut is really one whole die. However, I cut it to fit on the Cheery Lynn Fishtail Banners. The cupcake was cut on my cricut and I used liquid applique to give it a realistic look and it's hard to See but I placed crystal lacquer on the cherry. 

Here is the sketch this week. Lots of cards can be made with this sketch.

Thanks for stopping by! 
Have a great day! 
Hugs, Lisa
