Tough Times...

>> Monday, January 17, 2022


New Year, time to start exercising and eating right. That has me bringing out my stamps that show ways to get in more exercise and hiking is a great way to get a few extra steps in to my day.

I used this great SILHOUETTE HIKER - 1026G image stamped on white card stock and I sponged on the yellows, greens and oranges to color the scene after masking the sunshine.

Once colored I die cut the black frame and white heat embossed the great TOUGH TIMES DON'T LAST GREETING - 1096D then popped it up on dimensionals.

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


Every Beat of My Heart

>> Thursday, January 13, 2022

 Good morning!  

It is getting ever closer to Valentine's Day, are you ready?

Here is a card that is pretty simple.  Just grab a background that you have in your stash (this one was a marbling technique done with alcohol inks)  I used the DRS I love you! with  the Every Beat of My Heart together on a block using Black VersaFine Claire then came back with the Heartbeat in a dark red color.

The cute Shell'don The Turtle was stamp on white with Memento Black Tuxedo then stamped again on a plain piece of smooth rubber (usually called a Mirror Stamp) then stamped from the mirror onto paper (I used a Misti for this but you don't have to). 

I cut them out then colored them.  I did use an ink pen to blacken the lines on the mirrored image, it just needed it.

There you have it.  I popped up the turtles and added some enamel dot, it's done. 

Thanks for visiting today!



Lots of Hearts and Chocolate

>> Wednesday, January 12, 2022

Hello crafty friends!

A quick and simple Valentines day card today.  I had to be quick because my first card was done with a retired background image and I didn't want to post something you couldn't order if you liked it. 

The background was made by stamping the individual sections of the Triple Silhouette Hearts and heat embossing with Versamark ink and white embossing powder (Ranger).  I swiped the edges of my paper with the ink and embossing powder too which gives it a frosty look (matching the frost outside - lol). 

Next, I stamped the Love You More Chocolate Greeting and cut it up so I could angle the chocolate reference - lol. I stamped the greeting a few more times and used the Love You words on the inside.  A bit of ribbon was added, and it was done.  This card was inspired by THIS card by the Featured Stamper at - Leslie Larkin and Karin's fun embossed candy backgroun on her card from last week. 

In case you want to see my first card (remember the background image is no longer available) - here it is:

Hope your week is going well!

Hi Everyone,

I'm featuring the new Cheap Chocolate Eve Greeting on my Valentine card in today's post.  I love any kind of chocolate, so I decided to make some bon bons to match up with it.   

I used a 1 1/4" circle punch and then sliced off the bottom portion to form the little truffle, and I did the same to the sentiment.  The cream colored white ones I dry embossed and the brown chocolate colored ones I left plain. I added a punched flower and little hearts to top them off.  The hearts were fussy cut from the Candy Heart Background. 

All the pieces were attached to the pink background that I stamped using the Chocolate Chip Background and pink ink.  To finish it, I added a strip of lace to fancy it up!

This is just a quick birthday card I made for my sister in law's 60th birthday.  Unfortunately any large celebration had to be scrapped due to Covid, but my niece planned an intimate wine tasting dinner for her, and the extended family and friends sent in videos.  Of course I realized I forgot to take a picture of it until I was getting ready to send it, so ignore the weird

Here are the stamps I used:

Pour Me Bottle and Glass

Bunch of Grapes

Magnificent Birthday Greeting

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I absolutely love this BEST YEAR CHEERS GREETING - 1109F. It is perfect to give to anyone to wish a great year.

For the card base I used just the wine glass from POUR ME..BOTTLE AND GLASS - 075H and stamped it all over on the white card stock. I then colored it with copics. I added some mirror card stock to pick up the shine like the wine glasses are showing and finished with some sequins. 

The sentiment is popped up on dimensionals.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card this week. I hope you have the Best Year!

Candy Heart Wreath

>> Wednesday, January 5, 2022

 Hello Crafty Friends!

You know how I love to turn an image into a wreath, and these candy hearts from the new Candy Heart Background are perfect for a wreath!

The background was made by scribbling alcohol ink marker on a Ziplock bag, dropping on rubbing alcohol, and then pressing the paper into the mixture.  I let my grandsons do the scribbling and pick the colors.  The candy hearts were colored using alcohol markers, and then they were fussy cut.  I added the "happy" from the new Double Line Happy Valentine's Day Greeting (the rest of the greeting is on the inside). 

Extra Supplies: tile embossing folder (SU!) and Funky Wreath thinlet die (Tim Holtz/Sizzix). 

Valentines Day is just around the corner!
