A Play on Plaid

In order to make quick work (okay, quicker work) of making christmas cards,  I took 4 A2 panels and stamped them with the same plaid background.  To make the plaid I used Simon Says Stamp ‘Jumbo Stripe’ and a mix of inks: gold, schoolhouse red, catkin, steel blue and soft navy.  From there I used […]

Father’s Day

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 […]
