Bubble Talk Valentine

With a few tweaks to the phrases, this card could be used any time of the year.  I’ve made several valentines for the approaching holiday and I’ve strayed from the traditional red and pink colors for this particular card.  The recipient’s favorite color is yellow and I just had to go with it! I started […]

Heartfelt Thanks

With the holiday season over, it is time to send out cards for all those thoughtful gifts even if we are halfway through January!  This card uses a mix of stamps ‘Autumn Acorns’ and ‘Red and Goldie’,  from Ellen Hutson and Avery Elle respectively.

Neat and Tangled round 3

The MISTI (stamping tool) is pretty awesome and is a life-saver when making multiples of the same card.  So with the intent of making holiday cards “easier” this year I stamped the same card three times and began coloring the sweet boy and girl images from ‘Lumberjack Love’.  I couldn’t do it.  I colored all […]

Flourish

Hi!  I made two cards using the Flourish stamp set by Concord and 9th.  By changing the colors slightly in my stamped pattern I was able to treat one as a background and the other as a focal point.   On this first card I stamped an A2 panel in various inks using my MISTI […]

Neat and Tangled round 2

This is part of a mini-series of cards using the same Neat & Tangled ‘Lumberjack Love’ to make holiday cards.  Click here to see one of the others and for details on the copic markers I used! For this version I cut a panel of brown card stock and embossed it with the Darice ‘wood grain’ […]

It’s never too early…

…to begin making your holiday cards!  I’ve been making all my holiday cards for the last several years.  After individualizing each one last year I thought I’d make it a little easier on myself this year by creating several cards of the same design.  Yeah…best intentions.  These next several cards you will note that the […]

Mount Whitney

I’ve been slowly taking time to do a mix of scrapbook and project life pages.  It was part of my New Year’s Resolution to be better about documenting my year – ‘better’ being the operative word. 🙂  Eventually I’ll get around to snapping photos of my other pages from *cough* January. I have lots of […]
