Two Paper Divas - You Make Life Sweet

Hello all,  my dear friend, Melissa, typed some of these words for me to get things reset on my BLOG.  Her words will always stay here to inspire me to figure out what I need to do with my new computer system.  Thank you precious lady!!!

This such a "yummy" design.  It looks like this dessert is ready to eat.  Waaaahoo!!  

This is a top fold card in the limey green and the design paper on the sides is from a very colorful 6 x 6 pad from American Crafts.  I added texture to the paper with a Marvy Crimper.  Then I added a "party flavor" with a Silver Sparkle ribbon from Gina K Designs.  

I used the wonderful newer Two Paper Diva stamp set seen below and stamped it in the SU bashful blue which gave a glass dish and spoon look.  Colored the ice cream to look like Strawberry and used Liquid Applique on the whipped cream and did not heat it to give it more of a running look.  When it came to the Cherry on top I used Martha Stewart Garnet Glitter Glue with sprinkles in the cream.  As you can see, I used one of the sentiments from the TPD set.  The stones are from Recollections.    

I hope you have enjoyed....and come back to see what gets created again.

Here are all the wonderful stamps in this particular set.

TWO PAPER DIVAS Design Team Card - Bee Happy

I have received some pretty special Design Team Stamp Sets over the last few months while I have needed to be absent to get personal things done.   In looking over the sets, I decided that the "Bee Happy" was what I needed to start with.


STAMP SET:          Two Paper Divas "Bee Happy"
INK                          Memento Tuxedo Black
CARD STOCK:       Solar White for the base
                                 White Polka Dot - American Crafts 6 x 6 Paper Pad from 2013
                                  Yellow Gold for Bee Hive
DIE SET:                  Sizzix Die Set #B56538 (Flourishes)

I stamped the Bee Hive three times on the Yellow Gold card stock and shaped them each just slightly and then popped each of them onto the polka dot card stock.

Now that I have the text ...... time to get the picture transferred to my BLOG.  Our computer Guru has worked on our computer while I was in Denver during April and now I have issues again......they are called "reteach Carryn"!!!  See ya back here once I get this figured out again.  

Greetings ..... I am back!

Hi to all who have followed my BLOG and know that I have been away from a few things in my life in the last months.  What I have been not able to do is have my classes, work on my BLOG and be a part of the Team of Two Paper Divas.

My Mother unexpectedly passed away on the 22nd of February.  At 92, you still think that she would be around forever!!  So, with everything surrounding all of this and then my wonderful time that I have spent with two of our Granddaughters for a number of years when our daughter and son-in-law have had their trips that they took in April......I am now back in the groove of where I was in early February.
