Wood you be mine?

I just think these little images by Elena Roussakis for Neat and Tangled are adorable!  I used them previously on a series of holiday cards you can find here , here or here.  🙂  Super versatile! This card was made using ‘Lumberjack Love’ and ‘Falling Hearts’.  First I stamped the little scene and on an A2 […]

Birthday Floral

I’m trying to keep my cards simple after all of those handmade holiday cards!  I wanted this birthday card to be ‘bright and happy’ and selected my ink colors to reflect that. The stamps and die cut I used are both from Lil’ Inker Designs: Doodled Daisies and Boxed Up Birthday Greeting die. The first […]

A Play on Plaid

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I originally made this card with the intent that the little mixers would be the focus of my card.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 🙂 […]

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 […]

Blended backgrounds

I’ve been playing with a mix of watercolor and ink blended backgrounds, for other examples on my blog you can look here or here. 🙂 Using a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp I stamped it on an A2 panel in Versamark ink.  Versamark ink is clear and sticky and allows you to pour embossing […]
