Happy new year! Today I have the last of my holiday cards to share. All Stamp sets and supplies were purchased at Simon Says Stamp.

Sets used from top to bottom are: Lawn Fawn’s Winter Otter, Frosty Fairy Friends, the tree from Christmas Dreams with the Mice from the Neat and tangled Hello Pumpkin set, and lastly a card made completely with the Christmas Dreams set from Lawn Fawn.

These cards were so much fun to make, and inspired by all the very crafty people who share such wonderful card making videos on YouTube, such as Sandy Allnock, Nichol Spohr, Kelly Latevola, Kristina Werner, Julia Alterman, Vicky Papaioannou and Amy R at Prairie Paper & Ink.  They are all such wonderful teachers if you like any of my cards, you should check out their videos, I have learned so many techniques over the years from watching these ladies tutorials.

Best of wishes in the new year and happy crafting!

Hello and Happy Holidays!

Today’s card is made using Stamps and Die Cuts from Lawn Fawn purchased from Simon Says Stamp and colored with Distress Oxide Inks and Copic Markers.

The Lawn Fawn stamp and matching die set is called Home for the Holidays and the other Lawn Fawn die cuts used were the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, Stitched Hillside Borders, and the Village Border.

The background layer was colored with Distress Oxide Inks in Wild Hone, Wilted Violet and Salty Ocean and spattered with some watered down Folk Art Metallic Acrylic Paint in the Color 675 Champagne.

What ever holiday you celebrate, may it be happy and safe!

Take care.

Secret Garden Pop-Up Card

Leave a comment

I had so much fun making this pop-up box birthday card using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Pop-Up Box Die Cut and the Simon Says Stamp Secret Garden Stamp and Die set.

I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies from the set. To make the fairy and butterfly appear to be flying, I used a piece of acetate to attach them to the box base and mushroom house.

See you next week with a Christmas Card.









An oldie, but a favorite!

This digital image from Saturated Canary is still one of my favorites. I’m sorry to say that digital images are no longer for sale from this company, but I think they still offer rubber stamps. The image was called Frizzy Jynx and I think she is so cute and fun!

I made this as a hanging 2 sided card rather than a card that opens, and hung it over the handle of the gift bag. The paper I used was from the Simple Stories “Fabulous” 6×6 paper Pack. I colored the image with Copic Markers in colors that coordinate with the background paper.

Thanks for stopping by!













Stampingbella’s Tiny Townie Willow the Witch

Leave a comment

Hello, today I am sharing these cute Halloween cards made with the adorable Tiny Townie Willow the Witch stamp from Stampingbella. Her hat and fluffy skirt are so fun, and the little chicks in their ghost costumes make me smile.

I made one on Neenah Classic Crest 80 lb Smooth Solar White card stock and one on Neenah Environment 80 lb Smooth Desert Storm card stock. I think it is really neat to see how the same Copic colors look on both white and craft card stock.

Hope you like them!

Hello Pumpkin!


Today I’m sharing two cards made with the Neat & Tangled “Hello Pumpkin” stamp set. This set was part of the Simon Says Stamp 2017 “Stampember” release. (As of this posting, it is sold out). I just love this set, it is so cute! These cards were also so much fun to make.

The top card design is not mine, I was inspired by this video from Nichol Spohr. She has some of the best card making videos I have seen. 

Supplies I used: Copic Markers, Distress Oxide Inks, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables Die Cuts and the Lawn Fawn Landscape Stitched Hillside Die Cuts.

Abracadabra! A fun card for a boy.

This fun image is from Lili of the Valley Stamps, I bought it a while a go, back when it was available as a rubber stamp, but now it is available only as a digital stamp, or at least that was the only version I found on their site.  I think it will make a fun Halloween or even a birthday card.

I stamped the image and then used a masking pen over the image so that I could use Distress Oxide Inks on the background, but I think my pen was old or something because after I did the background and tried to rub off the masking fluid, it would not come off!  I was so bummed because I liked how the colors turned out.  I tried an eraser and that worked a little, but it smeared the yellow ink all over.  So I thought, I’m going to try some tape and see if it will pull it off, and that actually worked, but at this point, there was still yellow smeared all over the image, but what the heck, it couldn’t get any worse and if the coloring looks bad, oh well, I can always make another card. I think it turned out ok in the end, but next time I try this, I think I’ll just use masking paper instead of the masking fluid pen, it is going in the garbage!
