Thank You

>> Tuesday, August 16, 2022

 Hi Everyone,

We were invited to dinner this past weekend, so here is a quick thank you card I made for them using stuff laying around my craft table.  I'm a messy stamper, but for once it made this card fast and simple.

I had my rectangle dies sitting out from making this card, and my Medium Daisy Bloom out from making this card here, all I had to look for was the Brush Thank You stamp.


I even scavenged the cardstock from a pile on my table, so all that was left to do was tie on some twine, add a die cut butterfly and write a note inside. 

Thanks for stopping by!


Birthday Wishes for Anyone

>> Monday, August 15, 2022


Do you ever need a quick birthday card that can easily be used for anyone? Or have limited supplies, sentiments and you might not be able to color images. Well, I have a card for you today that can be used for anyone. 

  • For this card I used a few blues and greens and a sponge dauber to create the polka dot strip.
  • Once the strip was created, I layered it on a coordinating green card stock.
  • I finished with the SPECIAL BIRTHDAY WISHES GREETING - 018E stamped with a green that coordinated with the layered green.
This card can easily be changed with the colors to incorporate a favorite color for the recipient.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card this week.


Hula Pig

>> Thursday, August 11, 2022

 Good morning crafty friends!

Isn't this cute!  I wanted to use this shell embossing folder today, so I made a beachy card.

I used DRS Design stamps: Hula Pig and 4 in 1 Ocean Designs.
I drew a wave action for piggy and a horizon line for the boats.  The palm trees are a die from Maryanne Designs.
The waves have a combo of texture paste and glitter.
So, I had a lot of fun making this card today with all the beachy elements and I'm sure that
I'll be thinking up some more fun things to do with these stamps in future!
Until next time, keep crafting on!


A Little Stamp Surgery Fun

>> Wednesday, August 10, 2022

It's stamp surgery for me today.  I took these images:

Doggie Dilemma Dog with Fence

Let's Play Puppy

Happy Cat Sitting

I stamped them three times and, then, off with their heads!  I even sponged them instead of coloring them as I was being lazy.  

To create the bottom panel, I cut a paw print off the Dog Paw Background (real stamp surgery) and stamped it all around my sponged panel.  

A card this fun has to have a fun sentiment so I used the Dogs Have Owners Greeting.  I think most everyone one will agree it is true.  And, yes, the cat wins tic-tac-toe!

Do you like this funfold?  I cased  it from THIS fabulous card by Lisa Curcio who was the Featured Stamper this week. 




Cheerful Smiles

>> Tuesday, August 9, 2022

Hi Everyone,

My card today is generic, one of those cards that you can you use as a birthday, friendship or thinking of you cards.  In my opinion, you can never have enough of these in your card stash.

While I know Dogwoods don't come in these colors, it's my favorite flower stamp from the DRS Designs store, and I thought it would work for a background colored up in these fresh, happy colors. 

I added a die cut sentiment from the Cheerful Smiles Get Well Greeting which was embellished with a piece of ribbon.  I tried to resist the siren call of glitter but was unsuccessful.  It found its way to the centers of the flowers ;) 

The yellows and oranges are making me think about the next season....GAH! I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer, so I'm quickly squashing that thought. 

Enjoy the summer as long as you can folks!

Have a good one!



Congratulations on Your New Pet!

    Can you see the excitement in me for this card?

    I love doing mirror stamping. I usually get asked how I do my mirror stamping and get a clean line on my mirrored image. If you would like you can check out my blog post Mirror Image Stamping. It has the steps I use to get a good clean mirror image stamp.

    The reason I am so excited is I just had to see if I could not only mirror image stamp but also mask out and stamp a second image over the top and - YES, YOU CAN! 

For this card:

    Once all images and sentiment were stamped, I colored with copics and layered.

    Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my card this week. I hope you give mirror image stamping a try. It really is quite easy and adds to the possibilities for your cards using the images in your collection.


Perfect Day

>> Thursday, August 4, 2022


Good morning crafty friends!

My husband loves this card, he asked me to make him one (probably to give to a little boy knowing him), because he said it has Nemo on it!! He is a sweetie!

So, the stamps I used for this shaker card are DRS: School of Fish, 3 in 1 Ocean Floor, Porthole,

Do you think I accomplished the tarnished brass look?  That was what I was hoping for anyway!!
I used some screw brads dabbed with some alcohol ink to keep them from looking like new screws, I also used a net die from Amy Design-Maritime.
For the shaker I used acetate, die cut foam frame for under the acetate and lots of tiny various goodies inside to shake around.
The edges of the die cut net were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
The oval and round dies are both from Lifestyle.

Thank you for visiting today!!
