You're such an inspiration

Hello - Playing in a few challenges today. I started off using the sketch over at TGIF Challenges.


The flower challenge wanted pretty pastels. Mine are a bit bright, but hopefully they work.

Stamps are from Pretty Pink Posh. I stamped the flowers and leaves in versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Colored them with distress oxide inks. Sentiment is from Reverse Confetti.  Background plaid grid is from Altenew.

Birthday Wishes

Hello - Playing in the Just Us Girls challenge of making your sentiment the focal point.


I smooched some distress oxide ink in peacock feathers onto my glass mat and dragged my card base through it. Added some cracked pistachio as well. Next I splattered some white paint pen onto the top and finished off adding the grid (SU off the grid) in unicorn white ink. Birthday wishes was cut three times and glued together. I brushed it with a liquid sparkle pen to give it some bling.

Just because

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week our challenge is the use the following graphic.





I chose to use Vellum, do a fun fold and add dew drops. I never attempt a fun fold because I'm not too good at it. But I ended up being pretty happy with this one.

POTW - kissing

Hi everyone - It's my turn to do the project of the week over at The House That Stamps
Built. I haven't done the kissing technique in a very long time and decided to put it to use this week.


I used my Misti to stamp the solid leaves using a green dye ink. Then I cleaned off my stamps really good so that I could kiss them with the background postcard stamp. Didn't it turn out great?  I added some dew drops and the "thanks" sentiment. I went with a green card base to go with the color of my leaves. I kept this clean and simple to show case the kissing technique.


Stamps used:
5015-W, Postcard
5127-K, Maple Leaf Sil.
5110-I, Oak Leaf Sil.
Thanks is from the Plate 8600 unmounted stamps

You simply get better

Hi all - playing in the Freshly Made Sketch #395 today.



I used my Arteza watercolor markers on the new Flowers in Bloom set from My Favorite Things. Watercolor paper is from Ken Oliver. I heat embossed the flowers with detail white embossing powder from Ranger. Sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

I used the pinpoint snowflake circle frame die from Memory Box to cut out the flower and frame it with the pierced circle. The pierced outer die was cut a few times and stacked up for dimension.

God Bless America


Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week is our Designer Choice Challenge and Donna wants us to use Red, White and Blue.

I used a post it note to block out the star portion of the flag stamp, so that I could ink up the red stripes. Then reversed it to stamp the star portion. The stamp comes with the sentiment on the top and bottom of the flag, however, I did cut it apart to use all sections indepentetly (no pun intended). I had a heart that I had saved from another project that I used on this.  Came together quickly and I kept it fairly clean and simple for the July 4th Holiday.

Thanks for always being there

Hello. Playing in the Freshly Made Sketch today.


I used quite a few different stamps on this one. Started with the wood plank stamps from WPlus9. I stamped them in provincial gray from Fresh Ink. Concord & 9th beautiful branches used on the center panel. Thanks die and sentiment are from Simon Says Stamp.

I used a medium gray for the base of the card and to cut out the "thanks." I used fun foam to pop up the wood plank panel and I also used a strip of it on the small sentiment panel.

Also adding this into the SSS Wednesday challenge.

Thanks for stopping in, have a great day!

Fish - lots of fish

Went with a masculine theme for this challenge as I needed to add some masculine cards to my stash. 

Fish are stamped ramdomly and heat embossed with clear embossing powder so that I could color them with Copic's. Added the fly in the center and the birthday sentiment across the bottom and called it done.
