Sending Valentine’s Day Hugs!

Every time I think of Valentine’s day I think of those cute little notes that used to get handed out to all your classmates.  That probably still happens…it has just been a really long time since I’ve participated in it!  I don’t have  Valentine’s day specific stamps, so I was pretty excited to find that […]

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 […]

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 […]

Mount Whitney

I have lots of […]

I measured the mixers, a stamp from a Lawn Fawn set, and did math (yes, I actually calculated it 🙂 […]

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 […]

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 […]

During the Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge I colored a number of images that I’m finally getting around to making into cards!  The main image in this card is by The Greeting Farm – just adore their rubber stamps! I stamped my image on Neenah card stock in Memento tuxedo black ink and colored […]
