You grow through

Hello. Here is this weeks Freshly Made Sketch and what I did with it.


Sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. Flowers are stamped in Fresh pigment ink and Fabrika Decoru used for the center of the flowers. The pink mesh was done using the mesh die from Cherry Lynn. I stacked two on top of each other to get the dimensions I wanted. Dotted rectangle die is from MFT.

Thanks for stopping by.





Inspiration photo - just a note

Hello. It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to use the following picture for inspiration. 



I went with the colors in the photo. Did a bit of color smooching onto my craft mat with Distress Oxide Inks onto water color paper. Humming bird is colored with Copic's and cut out using my Brother Scan N Cut. Added the flowers on the side with Versafine ink and heat embossed them using clear powder. Same with the sentiment.

So, what are you waiting for?!

Sending smiles

Hello. Playing in the "birds" challenge over at The Paper Players today.



These cute birds are from Stamping Bella and colored with Copic's. Sentiment is from Hero Arts and that designer paper is from my stash.

As I was laying this out and after I got everything taped into place, I noticed I mixed up my dots and stitches dies. Pft….. Does it even matter?

Twofer Tree's

I Hello. Finally found some time to make something up for the Twofer Card Challenge of Tree's.




I most likely didn't follow the rules on this, but I decided to post it anyway.

The tree stamp is an old one from Memory Box. Stamped in versafine and heat embossed on both cards. I cannot remember where the Santa stamp came from. I think it might be a Victorine Original's but I'm not positive. Anywho, distress oxide inks were used heavily in both cards. To create the snow effect, I mixed some picket fence paint with water and put into a spray bottle, then misted it over the card. You have to seriously let it dry before finishing things off.

In the bottom card, the trees are highlighted with a stardust pen. IRL, they shimmer. Sentiment on the outside is from PTI and inside I stamped "relax."

Thanks for stopping in to take a look see. I appreciate all your comments.

Keep your head up

Hello - playing in the CAS colours and Sketches challenge today.


Sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. I cut out three strips of the flower border out of yellow cardstock and snipped off the end flowers. Then stacked & glued them together for more dimension. Added black pearls from Queen & Co. to the centers. Decided to add the tiny die cut heart for a pop of color.

I think this is such a fun and clean sketch with so many possibilities. Thanks for stopping by.

Thinking of you - FMS341

Hello - Here is my take on this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.


I used the flower and leaves from the Simon Says Stamp set called More Spring Flowers. Stamped in versmark, heat embossed with white embossing powder then colored with Copic's. To cut them out I used my Brother Scan N Cut. Sentiment is from Wplus9.

Thanks for stopping by!




ETA: entering this into the 30 day coloring challenge, too.

Tic-Tac-Toe challenge - masculine birthday

Hello, It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to use the following TTT grid.


I went down the middle of the grid.  

I used a piece of thin metal from Ranger to emboss the gears. Then I applied alcohol inks and washed it out using blending solution. It took a lot of rubbing things around to get a good coat of color into the nooks and crannies. I used the vertical Happy Birthday #6104W stamp and layered the metal piece with black cardstock. Love this look for a guy card. 

So, what are you waiting for?!

Why not play along with us and start stamping up a card now. We can’t wait to see your creations!

Wedding wishes

Hello. Playing in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of Anniversary or Wedding.


Die is from Stampin Up! I used Neenah solar white cardstock in 110 lb to cut the die out using my Gemini. Sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink. Kept this very clean and simple so the lacey die and the ribbon are the focal points.

Have a great day!

Guest Designing for Freshly Made Sketches

Hello! I have the honor of being asked to guest design for Freshly Made Sketches for the month of June. Here is the first sketch.




Stamps are from Technique Tuesday's Greenhouse Society. Stamped in versafine, heat embossed with clear embossing powder then colored with Copic's.

Purple striped designer paper is from My Favorite Things.



Summer Vacation

Hello. 
It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week it's a designer choice challenge and Esther wants us to use the theme - Summer Vacation.


Sentiment is computer generated and what I will be doing on my summer vacation. Hiking through the mountains and forest. Neenah solar white paper is embossed with a pine tree designed after stamping the boots and dog paws.

Left boot print is item #2720W and the right one is #2721W. Paw print is #2612D. I stamped them all using Acorn ink from the new Versafine clair line.

So, what are you waiting for?!
