FMS341 by Jen Timko | Banner in Bloom Stamp Set and Dies by Reverse Confetti, Zig Clean Color Markers, Softly Falling Embossing Folder by Stampin' UpI love the new sketch that we have from Freshly Made Sketches this week!!  The lovely Narelle has given us such a great one and I knew I had to use flowers…because, well, Narelle is the queen of gorgeous flower cards.  This pretty stamp set seem tailor-made for the sketch so I just went with the easy choice.

Banner in Bloom has such wonderful images and this banner with the flowers is an easy go-to.  I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and colored with Zig Clean Color Markers.  The pretty pastels seemed just right for the image and I love how they looked agains the Fog Gray color from Simon Says Stamp.  To add to the sketch elements (that were really already incorporated in the image), I thought it would be nice to add a bit of black metallic thread behind the banner.  The card seemed a little too clean (even for me) so I pulled out an old favorite embossing folder called Softly Falling to add a little bit of texture.  What a difference that makes!

And there you have it!  Fun coloring and a sweet little card for my stash.  I’m busy stamping this week for some upcoming projects.  Can’t wait to share them all.  Until next time, thanks so much for stopping in!

For Someone Special

For Someone Special published on 1 Comment on For Someone Special

For Someone Special by Jen Timko | Banner in Bloom Stamp Set and Dies by Reverse Confetti, Striped Frame Cover Pane by Reverse Confetti, Copic ColoringWishing you a happy Saturday!  For “spring”, it certainly has not been very bright or warm yet here in Virginia so I thought I should just create a little of my own spring sunshine.  I think this Banner in Bloom stamp set from Reverse Confetti does that perfectly, don’t you?!  I wanted the banner to go with this pretty yellow (Lemon Chiffon from Simon Says Stamp…it is a current favorite for sure!).  I stamped in Momento ink and then used Copics to color two of the images from the set.  They layer up so nicely!!For Someone Special by Jen Timko | Banner in Bloom Stamp Set and Dies by Reverse Confetti, Striped Frame Cover Pane by Reverse Confetti, Copic Coloring

To add a little more interest, I used the Striped Frame Cover Panel and popped up the center layer to allow for more of the yellow to peek out.  So pretty!!  I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh) for just a little more shine on the card.

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this week is a celebration of their 9th Birthday!  So, naturally they are having a birthday theme.  I thought this would be a fun way to help them celebrate (and add to my birthday card stash too!).  Hope the weekend is full of sunshine (either for real or in your craft room).  See you soon!

Stamp: Banner in Bloom (Reverse Confetti); Paper: Lemon Chiffon (SSS), Thick Whisper White (SU); Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers; Accessories: Misti, Big Shot, Banner in Bloom Dies (Reverse Confetti), Striped Frame Cover Panel Die (Reverse Confetti), Sparkling Clear Cupped Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh), Dimensionals, Mini Dimensionals

Reverse Confetti and Misti Blog Hop

Reverse Confetti and Misti Blog Hop published on 62 Comments on Reverse Confetti and Misti Blog Hop

I cannot even tell you how excited I am to be participating today in a hop with Reverse Confetti and My Sweet Petunia!  You are going to be blown away by all the inspiration as the two design teams combine.

Enjoy Today by Jen Timko | Take Flight Stamp and Dies by Reverse Confetti, Sunburst Tag Layer Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Copic Coloring, My Sweet Petunia's Original Misti

I fell completely in love with the Take Flight stamp set (big surprise, right?!) and thought it would be such fun to use with the Sunburst Tag Layer.  I knew the sentiment was a great fit in that circle but making sure it stamped there perfectly was up to my Misti!

Enjoy Today - Jen Timko | Take Flight Stamp (Reverse Confetti) with a Misti Original by My Sweet PetuniaHonestly the best part of the Misti is just KNOWING it will be right.  And if it isn’t the first time, it becomes perfect because you can stamp again.  I’m not sure how I ever created without this tool and I know for certain that there is no going back.  It simply lives on my table.

After stamping, I attached the Sunburst tag to the Topped Off Tag base and tied on a bit of baker’s twine.  The kite from the stamp set was the perfect little image to add.  Something about a kite brings thoughts of a happy summer day and that seemed to fit so well with the sentiment.  After attaching the kite to the tag, I just put the whole thing on a pretty polka dotted base.

As if all this crafty goodness wasn’t enough, we will choose two lucky commenters from the hop to win one of two prizes: a $60 shopping spree at www.mysweetpetunia.com and a $60 shopping spree at www.Reverseconfetti.com.  You must leave your comments no later than Sunday, March 25th, at 11:59 PM Central time and winners will be announced on Tuesday March 27th, on the Reverse Confetti and My Sweet Petunia blogs.

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Holding Happiness

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Holding Happiness published on 39 Comments on Newton’s Nook Designs March Release – Holding Happiness

Welcome to day 1 of the March Release from Newton’s Nook Designs.  We have lots in store for you and the focus is birthdays!  Today we have an adorable set called Holding Happiness (with coordinating dies) along with two new stencils, Bubbly and Confetti.

Big Wishes by Jen Timko | Holding Happiness Stamp and Dies by Newton's Nook Designs, Chameleon Pens, Striped Frames Confetti Cut Die by Reverse ConfettiI cannot even say how much I’m in love with this first reveal set!  I’m so excited for all the possibilities with it.  This sweet gal and her balloons called out to be colored with fun, bright tones and I thought using my Chameleon Markers (and Color Tops) would be perfect.  This sentiment from the set is awesome to use with each of the images and I simply stamped it in the corner of this popped up panel.  I dug through my collection of sequins to find some that match my balloon colors to add just a little more detail.

I can’t wait to see what the whole team has done with this set…sure to be amazing!  And these stencils are another great addition.  I’ll show you more with those later this week.  Off to a great start for sure.  Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week.  A chance to win!!
