3D Embossing


This pretty 3D embossing folder is by Sizzix and I inked the flat part of the inside of the folder with a golden yellow ink before running it through the Big Shot. The sentiment is by Avery Elle and the floral spray is by Yvonne Albritton Design, a local Washington designer. Colored the image in Copics and cut out by hand.

Mimi The Mermaid


 I have been working on my next batch of cards for donation off and on recently. This one will go to Send A Smile To Kids. Mimi The Mermaid is by Penny Black and the sentiment is from Be A Mermaid by Simon  Says Stamp.

Movable Pumpkin Ladies


These 5 1/2" square cards were easy to do with the Simon Says Stamp leaves stencil and distress oxide inks of Scattered Straw, Ripe Persimmon, and Fired Brick. The rest is done with Jolee's Halloween stickers. The pumpkin ladies are articulated which makes it a fun card to give to kids.

Hallows Night Magic



It's time to start making Halloween cards and decorations. I doubt we will be having trick or treaters this year but I will most likely adorn the yard to make them smile.

The card uses all Stampin' Up!, the new mini Hallows Night Magic bundle. I made a rolled flower out of Cajun Craze card stock to pick up the one in the patterned paper.

The wood coffin box and paper is by Tim Holtz and I embellished it with items that I had in my Halloween box.

Missing You TBT#4

For Throwback Thursday I used this Weathered background stamp from Stampin' Up! 2005. I used Soft Seafoam with Simon Says Stamp "Just Miss You" sentiments done in Versamark and clear powder. The sequins in real life match the card stock much more closely.

Poppy Hugs

Just one more with this awesome Poppies Background background stamp by Simon Says Stamp, A2 card size for this one. Colored in Copic markers and dotted with white gel pen. Hugs die cut is from Lawn Fawn.

Back To School


First day of school today here in King County, Washington.Wishing you all a wonderful year, learn a lot!! This is a thank you to a kind neighbor who brought me a bag of apples yesterday.
For the "basket" background I used Cinnamon Cider card stock with a Tim Holtz woodgrain 3D embossing folder that was inked with Baked Brown Sugar. Cut it into strips and then wove together.
Lawn Fawn Thanks a Bushel stamp set, so perfect for fall, teachers, and thanksgiving greetings. The set comes with a bunch of different faces if you would like to give your apples a little personality.

The Gang's All Meer


The Gang's All Meer and they are truly adorable! Masked off the image for repeated stamping to create this group. Colored in Copic markers. Used the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the sentiment from The Stamping Village.



Another with the leftover designer paper from the previous card. Love the city map.
