Happy Fall

Hi there,

Well it's finally fall!  Yay!  It's cool and rainy here today sure feels like it!  Hopefully it will soon in other parts of the country.  I purchased a bunch of new fall images and wanted to share this first one.  It's from Powerpoppy and you can purchase it Here .  It's called feeling Fall and thats what I'm feeling today!  I colored it on Kraft paper. This is a new technique for me.  I've been watching a few videos on YouTube from Julia Alderman.  She gives lots of great tips for coloring on kraft.  Go check her out! So here is what I created:

Birthday Fairy

Hi there,

I'm back again today to share a card I  made for a friend of mine's daughter for her birthday.  She loves purple and I've had this image in my stash for a while.  Sorry I don't know who it's by. The card is larger to accommodate image about 5X7. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday. Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  two die cuts, round and oval.  I love how it turned out and so simple!

Happy Stamping!

Hero Arts Flowers

Hi there,

I haven't been blogging for a while, I took the summer off but now I'm back with a few cards to share.   I needed a couple of sympathy cards recently and thought there two images from Hero Arts would be perfect!

The first one is from Hero Arts an add on monthly kit from March called Marianne's Flowers.  I am  huge fan of Marianne Walker from Copic.  Even took a class from her here locally in Arizona a while back!  So when these images came out I had to have them.

The second card I used Another Hero Arts my monthly kit. It's a Stamp & Cuts set.  I colored the flower with Copics, die cut the image and then adhered to card base and added some sparkle with a glitter pen.

Gonna need a bigger cake!!

Hi there,

Thought I would share a card I recently made inspired by a Jennifer Mcguire video found HERE . I've had this stamp set from AveryElle called Hello Chum .  I love this set!!!! I don't own the dies I just fussy cut it! It make for a great kid card and I just love the sentiments!! Just used a few grey copies to color this one and it's done!! The blue paper I've had forever in my stash. The scallop edging on the sentiments is from Paper Smooches called waves .

Happy stamping!

Two graduations

Hi there,

Sorry it's been so long since a post.  Didn't realize how long it's been!

Had two graduations recently for two grandsons so I thought I would share both!

The first one features The Ton Bokeh Burst Star found Here . I adore this set.  Can be used for lots of different cards.  Fourth of July, birthday, graduation.  I stamped it on clear heat resistant acetate and embossed with gold embossing powder.  Used neutral colors for a guy graduation card.  I took a class from on-line card classes sheer and clear found Here .  It was a fun class.  Check it out!  So that was my inspiration for this card.

The second card features a stamped sentiment from Taylored Expressions called  Eventful-graduation and Eventful - Graduation border die which I cut apart.  I embossed the sentiment and added 2016 using Wplus 9's Modern Numerals die which are always good to have on hand for birthdays!
