Good morning and happy day-before-the-weekend! I hope you’ve got some fun things planned for your time off!
There was a cool theme challenge over at The Paper Players this week and it gave me the perfect reason to pull out the uber-perfect new Crafting with You stamp set and bundle – coming on 2 May in the 2023-2025 Annual Catalog! Take a look-see:
And here’s The Paper Players challenge!
Of course, there WAS that fear-inspiring “Clean and Simple” thing but…I did the best I could! 🙂
I started by making a watercolor wash on a piece of Basic White cardstock. I put a few drops of Lemon Lolly Reinker on an acrylic block. Then I dribbled some water into the ink with a Water Painter to dilute it. Using the Water Painter (the one with the large wide brush) – I “painted” my cardstock – using as little water as I could and keeping the color centered on the panel.
When the panel was dry, I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Lost Lagoon mat to make the card front.
On another piece of Basic White, I stamped the big painter’s easel from Crafting With You in Lost Lagoon Ink. In the middle, I stamped the flowers image in Bubble Bath and added the sentiment over top in Pretty Peacock.
I used the die in the bundled Crafting With You die set to cut out the easel – and then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the Crafting With You brushes image in Pretty Peacock and again in Bubble Bath on Basic White. I also stamped the basket in Pecan Pie ink. Hmmmm – sounds like…one of my Special color bundles! 😎
I cut everything out with the handy dies from Crafting With You!
Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the two die cut brush images to the back of the die cut basket and then adhered the whole thing to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sweet and tiny flower from Crafting With You in Lemon Lolly. Then I carefully colored the leaves with the Light Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Blend and added a flower center with the Light Bubble Bath Stampin’ Blend.
I die cut the flower – yes, there’s a die for that, too! – and popped it into place with a Dimensional.
Finally, I added some Lemon Lolly Adhesive-backed Solid Gems (ALSO new in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog!) and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped the Crafting With You flowers in Bubble Bath and a second sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Basic White panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Lost Lagoon mat and in to my Lemon Lolly card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Crafting With You flowers in Bubble Bath on the front…
…and a piece of the NEW Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP – in Lost Lagoon – on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I’m pretty sure that there’s not been a bundle QUITE as appropriate for us than this Crafting With You bundle – what about you?! It’s just…perfect! 😎😎. And – how about these colors together?! Yes!!

Finn Fan Fix
Finn found him a stick on our evening walk the other day.
He’s always so proud to have a stick to carry to the house. Cuz Wayne LOVES when he takes sticks TO the house! 🤦♀️
But – as sometimes happens – the stick sorta had a mind of its own and it kinda got away from him!
So – Dad helped!
Although…foot on the stick AND a hand on his neck!? Hmmmm – looks a lot like a stick snatch in progress!
