Super Woman

>> Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Hi Everyone,

It's fun to use stamps in multiple ways, and here I've used the Tired Walking Woman for both a Mother's Day card and also a birthday card.  

I stamped both the image and Super Tired Greeting and then die cut and colored her up using Copic markers.  I used an embossed flower background and accented it with a strip stamped with flowers from the Four Flower Background stamp.  

I finished it off with a few resin flower embellishments. 

Here I made an over the hill birthday card in a simple black and white color combo.  

I made a little scene using the Winter Trees and RIP Tombstone stamps and a portion of the Over the Hill Greeting.

And here's the inside finishing off the card with the second half of the greeting and the tired woman.

Sometimes all you need is some great stamps to make a successful, simple card!

Thanks for peeking in today!


The Beauty of Springtime!

>> Monday, March 27, 2017

Hi everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. My life has been crazy busy lately and I am so thankful to be able to stop and get creative in the craft room. It really helps me to relax and refocus when I'm stamping, coloring and creating cards. Wonder what I used to do before I became addicted to stamping?! Seems like a life time ago.  Anyway, my card today features two new stamps from DRS Designs: the Sneaky Bunny and Springtime Easter Greeting.

I started by stamping the Sneaky Bunny image onto white CS with Memento Black ink. Once the image was colored with Copics, the Springtime Easter Greeting was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink. Some baker's twine and a yellow button was added to the white panel before gluing it onto the yellow card base. The purple frame was die cut with a Spellbinder's die. To add a bit of shimmer some clear Wink of Stella was added to the bunny's ears and the centers of the flowers. Don't you love how this little bunny is nestled in the middle of the flower pot!

Thanks for stopping by today and please stop by our on line store and check out all the new images! You can find the new images here.



The Beauty of Springtime

>> Sunday, March 26, 2017

Hi all,
What a week it has been, we have had some terrible storms this week one night the power went off at 9:00 and didn't come back on until the next afternoon. Today is beautiful with the sun shinning so I can see all the yard work that needs to be done I think spring is finally here.

My card this week is a Easter card that is very simple.

With this new set of stamps I found myself do this almost one layer stamping. I found that I really liked the look of stamping the Image and the Greeting on the same layer and it was super simple with the use of my Misty. 

For this card I stamped the Brushed Pussy Willow twice across the bottom of the panel and then stamping the new Springtime Easter Greeting in Memento Coco Ink I used Copic to color the image. This was layered onto a Lt. Pink die cut card then onto a cream card. I just loved the simple elegant look.

Have a wonderful day,


Easter Bunny

Good morning!!
Easter is coming...get ready!

I made this card with our new Release: Happy Easter Everybunny 048D and Sneaky Bunny Flower Pot 035H.
I wanted to add lots of fun Easter colors so I added several rectangles of color (dies by Tonic) I used colors that I colored the image with. Lastly, I added 3 cute "dressed" buttons because as a friend of mine always says, "there's nothing worse than naked buttons", heehee!  I used embroidery floss to dress my buttons.

This second card uses the new release stamps: Springtime Easter Greeting 039G, Easter Egg Hunt Sign 040D and my favorite from a previous release, Cute Bunny With Egg 702D.
The egg dies and clouds are from ODBD. Long oval die is from We are Memory Keepers. The grass is a Martha Stewart border punch.  I fussy cut the bunny and Easter Egg Hunt Sign and sandwiched them in between layers of grass.  I used glitter paper on the layered eggs.

Super Tired!

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Ever feel like you're dead on your feet? I know I do! This tired lady (yep, she looks a lot like I feel by the end of most weeks) was stamped onto an already die cut little rectangle & I used some of the cut out parts of the Chevron die & colored them lime, as border elements, then added some die cut flowers across the bottom.
Three little green metal doodads (no idea what they're called..they're not brads but you usually put them on w/ one of those bedazzler thingies) were added on the right.

Here's a look at the inside using the leftover pieces from the front. Below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Spring is coming...

>> Thursday, March 23, 2017


It seems like just a few short weeks ago I was asking everyone to cross your fingers for me that we would get a boat load of snow... and you must have, because we did :)  Last week we received another 18 inches of love from mother nature and well, to put it bluntly, I'm done with snow and winter :)  and my card this week reflects it!

This is one of those miracle cards that came together just like I envisioned it.  A bit more work than I thought it would be...but it was worth it in the end :)

I started my card by stamping our Flower Border on some white card stock 4 times, coloring and fussy cutting them.  My light yellow layer measures 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" and I stamped the center with our Spring is Coming Greeting using blue ink and then layered all on a folded blue card that I had run through my cuttlebug.

Now, let's all cross our fingers that spring is here to stay :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!!


Dancing All Over the Place

>> Wednesday, March 22, 2017

The Ballerina stamp has captured my heart so I made three cards using her.  In this one, I did some surgery on the images.  I cut her legs and made them come out at different angles so it would look like she was jumping high instead of bowing - then I made two more. I cut the Country Window curtains image and drew a long bottom instead of a short.  Lastly, I took the Dance Your Heart Out Greeting and cut it up to frame the little ballerinas. 

On this next card, I focused on the Dance Your Heart Out Greeting and cut out a heart.  I used an inked up embossing folder to get the design on the heart and the background. 

I made this one using the tea bag art from the Splitcoast Stampers Inspiration Challenge as my inspiration.  I cut up the Dance your Heart Out Sentiment and added the little ballerina.  I used teabags to stain up the tag and the background and then used the tea bag topper on the tag.  Fun card to make. 

She is just such an easy image to play with! 

Hope your week is going well.
