Holographic Birthday

 I had made a mistake on this panel with big ink smudges on the edges, I cut it down to a smaller panel and mounted it on a layer of Garden Green and then Pretty in Pink card stock. Most mistakes are salvageable! Added holographic paper greeting and butterflies, Simon Says Stamp Brushed Flowers card kit. A fun one!

I am trying to shake myself out of this slump I've been it, I'm sure it happens to all of us occasionally. I walk into my craft room, just stare at everything and then walk out again. Yesterday I forced myself to choose a stamp set and work with it, so here is the result. Sunny Studio Stamps "Radiant Plumeria" with matching dies and the stencil is by Simon Says Stamp. Flower centers are lemon Nuvo drops.

Shine Brightly

 Sparkle and shine, always hard to capture in a photo, this Stickles glitter gel is pretty thick and takes a long while to dry.  But maybe worth the wait for the finished look.

Simon Says Stamps April card kit for the sentiment, balloon dies, gel, and paper. A good kit for birthday card making.

Umbrella Girls

 This sweet vintage image from Crafty Individuals is a stamp I picked up in London on my way to the National Gallery. Funny to get as excited to come upon a stamp store as it was to see some unique works of art. 

Today is all about you!

 Simon Says Stamp April card kit is perfect for celebration cards!

Bunny Stencil

I saved the Hallmark card in the background a few years ago to use as inspiration and have just figured out that it makes an awesome stencil. I used Tea Dye distress oxide ink and some small stamps and this was quick and easy. Sometimes never throwing anything away works to your advantage!

Hat and Scarf

 For my weekly Facebook Christmas card challenge with the prompt of hat and scarf along with the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes to feature some Hero Arts (poinsettia stencil for background) and Heartfelt Creations snowman. I should be working on Easter cards but there you go.

I don't want too hurry time since it all goes by so quickly as it is but I am really looking forward to Spring! Will make some sunny springtime cards until it arrives. This card was made with the Simon Says Stamp Tulip background stamp which I embossed in Judikins Egyptian Gold for lots and lots of shimmery sparkle. Arteza watercolor brush markers for tulips and "blessed" die cut.

Polar Olympics

 Working on some challenges- one a weekly Christmas Card Challenge with the theme of polar bears or penguins, the other the Simon Says Stamp slimline.

Used Lawn Fawn "Beary Happy Holidays" and DCWV "Sparkling Snow" paper pad.

French Postcard

I have been deep down the rabbit hole of sorting through my boxes (and boxes) of paper scraps, half complete cards, stamped images and sentiments, etc. Trying to finish up some of them and this was a pretty easy one for today. I had a box of these postcards that I used for the base and added a Prima doll by Julie Nutting from the "Merci" set and embossed the sentiment in gold. ooh la la!

Tea, anyone? Love this adorable mouse by Gerda Steiner Designs, Positivitea. Paired with some retired Stampin' Up!paper for a tea bag holder mini card.

Cards For Cubs

I have been working on making cards for the Cards For Cubs drive, hosted by Bearly Arts. These will be for the kids in the foster care system. If you have some extra cards or time I am sure that they would love to have some more cards to share.
I used my box of mixed papers and card stocks for these (Stampin' Up!). Balloon die was a punch.

 I am really scared of jellyfish but this stamp is so pretty that I couldn't resist getting it. Jellyfish Blooms by Creative Expressions, background done in gelatos. Card base is Bashful Blue by Stampin' Up! I'm sad that I only have one sheet of it left.

Tuesday, January 4, 2022


 Resolutions are often hard to stick to after the first month of the year passes so I am starting out with smaller goals. I hope to work on lots of little things toward positive changes, both in my life and in my crafting this year. I would love to learn more mixed media techniques, some art journaling, ATC's, and getting cards out for donations on a much more regular basis.

This is my first page with the goal of being more kind. I used the Simon Says Stamp "Kind Flowers", Fiskars octagons, an SU honeycomb die as a stencil for background. Bee is Technique Junkies.

Snowy Village

Oh, these houses! I really love them. From the Cozy Christmas gift card kit at Simon Says Stamp. I used the snowflake embossing folder from the new January kit with some sprays of Dylusions "After Midnight" and Hero Arts Shimmer Frost. Very sparkly! Snowy hillsides are a Lawn Fawn die.
