Bake me a cake

I originally made this card with the intent that the little mixers would be the focus of my card. Just.didn’t.happen. Sometimes, your project has to evolve for you to end up with something you like. I measured the mixers, a stamp from a Lawn Fawn set, and did math (yes, I actually calculated it 🙂 […]

Beach babe ;)

This little beach baby is from an older Penny Black stamp set.  I colored her months ago with copic markers and finally used her on a card.  When I create water color or blended backgrounds I tend to make multiple at the same time.  This ensures I can play with multiple color combinations, account for […]

At the beach

This poor kid has a squiggle face that always make me think he’s a natural red head standing in the sun without any sunblock on.   😳  I’ve been toying with backgrounds and this card is no exception.  It is a combination of ink blending, stencils, and copic coloring.     To begin I stamped […]

Hey there!

I must say….I had an opportunity and passed it by.  My husband saw me stamping these Reverse Confetti pups for the umpteenth time and asked what happens when they no longer cling to the acrylic block. Actually said:  You just clean them! 😉 Should have said:  That’s it….I have to buy new ones.  😔 Products […]

I stamped my image on Neenah card stock in Memento tuxedo black ink and colored […]

Puppy Love

Hi!  This card is a departure from what I would consider my normal style – but I like the opportunity to branch out!  Lots of layers, bright colors, and added dimension!  To build up to the focal point of this card I took an A2 panel and stamped it in ‘Blueberry’ ink by My Favorite […]

Hello

I love correspondence.  When I was young, my mum and I would sit on the porch together and write cards.  According to my mum, it is bad form not to send ‘thank you’ cards and reprehensible to not correspond in general.  I made this card to participate in a challenge hosted by Neat and Tangled because […]
