Happy Little Stampers challenge for the month of September is coloring, which makes me a happy stamper because I love to color, always have. I tried my hand it no line coloring on this hostess set Best Thoughts. I also used the background stamp A World of Thanks. finished it off by inking the edges and adding a little linen thread.

Had fun playing with this new Sizzix Kind Sentiment Step-up die set by Stephanie Barnard. It includes 14 different pieces and two of them are sentiments. For the flowers I used another one of her sets. Stephanie at The Stamps of Life has so many fun dies that you can make a card in 10 minutes. Go check it! 

AAA Cards

I love playing in the games at AAA cards and I am happy to announce that I made the design team! 
Our game for the next couple weeks is Embossing, it can be any type embossing so come play along with us.

To make my card, it was pretty simple. I inked up the Monarch background with versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder and the sponged around the image with some Pool Party ink. I added some sequins to finish it off

Now for the Color me challenge, This week we are using Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, Cajun Craze & Tangerine Tango... 
I used the hostess set Floral Wings along with one of my favorite go to sets Gorgeous Grunge
