Good Monday Morning Everyone,


Fall is around the corner so I thought I would make a fall card.

I used the Mighty oak die and stamp set along with the sketched shapes stamp set both from PTI.  For my inks I used canary,Gold rush, sky , glacier blue, bamboo and cashmere. The card stock I used is vanilla cream and  spring moss.  The technique is : ink your stamp then touch it to your die then stamp it on your card stock , the cut out images from the die will appear as negatives on your card stock. I really like the way this came out. This technique is called stamped die kissing and Betsy does a fantastic job showing how this is done. This was a bit time consuming, but I think well worth the results.

Hi Everyone,

I have been busy I have been swimming in ribbon.  I was so excited when I finally got these results after many many many many mistakes.  One batch smelled like skunk another batch was hard and sticky not quite the consistency of taffy, and I am certain it was not as tasty.  Speaking of Taffy we have a candy store on our wharf that makes handmade taffy--made the same way for over 100 years-- I digress. It is the best salt water taffy in the world.

When I went to the scrapbook expo last week I had a sample of mermaids Tale second edition bundle  to give to one of the new Design team members.

Well, it must have fallen out of my purse, while I was standing in line to pay for admission, never to be seen again. I hope who ever found it realizes what it is, uses it and links it to my blog challenge. Because it did have my name and info on it.  I hope they are blessed by it and enjoy it immensely to.



Here is a very short video of the ribbon




I hope you love it as much as I do.  DL.ART

How funny is this just after I finished writing this post, I went to my car to get something out of the glove compartment and I noticed something shiny between the seat and the console-- guess what it was?   Yep!! your right!! The Mermaids Tale second edition. I guess  I will take the blessing

Have a blessed day Diana

Hi Everyone, 

As you know last week I celebrated my birthday along with a lot of other family members and it is not over yet. I made this one for my best friend back in Michigan and sent it last week  along with some wine glasses. She also collects blue bottles that is why I colored the one with a blue bottle. I post-a noted the sentiment on the inside,  I figure this way she can recycle and someone else may enjoy it.
because she does not save paper--- PERIOD--- she has no books newspaper etc. she does however have TP and paper towels and Kleenex. Yeah for that!!

She does not scrapbook she spends no time on the computer except for when she has to at work.


Welcome to WEEK 2 OF THE 

DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #162

This was so fun to color and I laughed the whole time I colored it. I hope my friend likes it. This is my first AI stamp. I have been wanting one forever. I was so excited about it when I got it I forgot to use my 40% coupon, it is well worth the price though.

The challenge will open at 9:00 am August 13,  2015 and

Good Morning Friends,

We had a very hot weekend!!! 101 this is unusual for us and we do not have air conditioning.  I went to the gym and even our gym does not have AC, needless to say I only got 2.25 miles in, too hot to do anymore.  We are going to be 86 today ---- perfect.  Here is my card for today. The stamp set I used is "reason to smile"-- PTI and the technique is from a video by Ashley Canon Newell. I like how she describes the technique and makes it so easy.
I used versamark onyx black and the rest of the ink is CTMH sunset and sweet leaf







Have a blessed day, Diana

Hi Everyone,

It is really hard to want to be indoors when it is so beautiful out. We are at 80 degrees with a gentle breeze off the coast. We went down to the beach today and just had a wonderful day.
Now I will probably be working late, But that is ok, because I love what i do.

So here is tonights card: The green sequins remind me of my birthstone the peridot and the rest of the colors just came into place, no rhyme nor reason. I used copic markers




I just like the way it looked. I hope you do to. My card measures 5 X 7. Premium ivory cardstock.

Hi Everyone,

So, I had a birthday last week and the hubs spoiled me, but that is not unusual, he just seems to do that. Then Saturday I met up with a friend at the scrapbook Expo in Santa Clara. Katie from Katieoscreations. We have a great time chatting and shopping and just looking at all the new products out there.  Oh yeah and eating.  Usually I would have a haul to share with you all, but unfortunately I did not buy that much. I did buy some paper and I should know better, not to buy it at the beginning of the show, because then I ended up carrying it everywhere.  I did the bag check at the very end.  WOW what beautiful paper.

If you have been following along you know I am now making crinkle ribbon. This was so much fun and is even more beautiful in person than in the photos the golden highlights just glisten and the pink hues are just incredible the way they blend.  When the sun hits you see translucently through the weave of the fabric to the hues underneath. I am in love with this one. I have named it pink hue tail


To compliment it I thought of the color of the ocean when you look under about 6 feet which is a Fathom, On a sunny day you can still see color that far down and the color of the ocean changes, I went with this color for what I call One Fathom.  I have gone snorkeling before and the further down you go the less light that is there. I don't think I have gone down to 36 feet, but I thought that would be an appropriate name for this next color so I have named it Six Fathoms.


So what I am getting to, is...

I have a new Bundle of crinkle ribbon called Mermaids Tale -First Edition

It consists of 5 yards of Pink Hue Tail
                    5 yards of  One Fathom
                    5 yards of Six Fathoms







I hope you just love this bundle like I do. Because each one is dyed separately, no two are alike, just like mermaid's no two are alike. However, I do have formulas for each batch and therefore my saturation and colors are pretty consistent.

If you would like to get your hands on some go here:  www.dianamlarson.com

Have a blessed day, Diana

Good Morning Everyone,



Case the card!!

I am not quite sure who the designer was on this but, I know it was from PTI and Nicole Heady's  name was at the bottom.  This was trickier than you think, I still did not get it right , but I think I came pretty close. After I stamped each letter on the cardstock I gave it a spritz of water




I used Vintage cream, versamark onyx black and various colors of the rainbow, heat tool and pop dots. Easy peasy !!! Happy Monday!!



I always need thank you cards.

Have a blessed day, Diana

Hi Everyone, 

Wasn't that fun having Hope here for the last two weeks? I am sure she is looking forward to seeing you all in November.  Now let's move out of Christmas and back into summer. We had a 94 degree day a few days ago and it was humid. It felt like it was going to rain, but it never did.  Makes me think of that song I wish it would rain, by the Temptations.I just love that song.I am off track ( didn't mean to be a pun, but it is) In the summer we are use to 62 degree nights and 72 if we are lucky in the day time.. on to the challenge



Welcome to week #2

DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #161


THEME:  SUMMERTIME..... alternative thank you


As you have noticed I extended the challenge for another week, but I did not want you to have to look at the same card for three weeks, so I created another fun summer car from the Carta Bella papers  and added liquid glass (I love this stuff) to all the watermelon seeds on the background. I also added some CTMH glacier extra thick twine in a circle at the bottom and popped a button on top. I think it is a real fun card I hope you like it to. You can enter a total of 6 times for this challenge





I used Carta Bella summertime for this CAS  card, Easy peasy. Cutting and gluing

The challenge will open at 9:00 am July 23,  2015 and

 will be open until 11:55 pm PST  August 12
, 2015.   




Prize:



24 6x6 sheets Crate paper
