Sending Sunshine

>> Wednesday, July 6, 2022

 Sending cards is like sending sunshine don't you think?

This card is sure to make someone smile as the Big Mouth Bass looks so happy jumping for a bug that just came out of the tangle rushes (made with the Sea Grass image stamped over and over). I wanted the grass to look super full so I also stamped my favorite Script Font Background in too (this image is retiring soon so if you don't have it already, I highly encourage you to get it).  I stamped the script in the water too using the same distress oxide ink that I dragged over the paper to give the effect of water. I sponged in some yellow to add in some sunshine (in the sky and the water for a bit of reflection).

The card was finished off with a few scribbles on the bottom of the rushes and the Sending you Sunshine Greeting

I hope your week is going well so far!

 Hi Everyone,

Lacking design inspiration, I looked back over my recent cards, and landed on this one here.  Instead of stamping the butterfly inside an inked-up oval, I tore some paper and masked off the top and bottom of my white panel and sponged some ink inside the center.  That gave me space to stamp the Filigree Butterfly multiple times and left me room for the Special Birthday Wishes Greeting.

I tried to do the random placing of enamel dots as embellishments, but I think they may need to be various sizes for the perfect effect.  

Thanks for stopping by!



Beautiful Birthday Butterfly

>> Monday, July 4, 2022


I can't get enough of this gorgeous FILIGREE BUTTERFLY - 021G. For today's card I created a birthday card.

  • I stamped the butterfly on white card stock then colored it with copics and fussy cut it.
  • Next, I heat embossed the birthday sentiment in white on black card stock.
  • I embossed the white layer and decided to only use a portion of the butterfly, so I hung it over the edge and cut it off flush with the embossed layer.
  • The card was finished with a few mirrored candy dots.
Thank you for stopping by to check out my card this week.


Sweet Baby Girl

>> Thursday, June 30, 2022

Good morning!

Isn't this just too adorable?
It makes a sweet baby card doesn't it and of course you can change the colors to blue for aa boy.
I used Jenny Giraffe for my image today partnered with a few paper dies to make this card.
The background is from Lawn Fawn, stitched rectangle is Rubbernecker, frame from Pink Fresh
the words Baby Girl are from Amazing Paper Grace and Sweet is from the Stamp Doctor.
I just love this sweet giraffe though, she is a favorite with me.

How about the sweet little baby boys though?
Hey, how about this?
I used the same background die in blue and then used green for another splash of color
to mat and for the words.
This time I used Jungle Jim the Elephant.  He looks like a boy!

I hope this has inspired you to use your stamps 
in other ways.
Thanks for visiting!



Freedom Thoughts

>> Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Hoping you have great July 4th plans!  I plan to see a parade, eat some barbeque and crawfish, and take a big nap.  I have an independence/freedom card to share with you.  It was inspired by THIS lovely card made by CAR372 at 

I let paint drip down some paper to acheive the stripes then die cut the net and stamped/fussy cut the Filigree Butterflies.  To underscore the freedom theme, I added in the Let Freedom Ring greeting.  

With us emerging from Covid restrictions in the U.S. and with the political unrest around the world, this card seems especially appropriate. 

Hope you are having a lovely week. 




Birthday Wishes

>> Tuesday, June 28, 2022

 Hi Everyone,

Since we're smack in the middle of summer, I decided to break out my Medium Daisy Bloom stamp and make a birthday card.  Even now, after years of stamping, heat embossing always gives me a thrill.  It's so satisfying to see the powder firm up and give off that glossy sheen :)

The white powder with glittery bits in it makes the flowers pop off that black background and I couldn't help but add some yellow glitter glue to the flower centers.  Cutting the black panel an extra 1/4" smaller than I normally would, better shows off that bright card base color.

For the sentiment, I die cut the Special Birthday Wishes Greeting , embellished it with yellow chalk and attached it with some dimensional foam tape.

Birthday Tags

>> Monday, June 27, 2022

Today I am sharing 2 different tags using different birthday sentiments. My first tag I did in green and yellow.

I used the new SPECIAL BIRTHDAY WISHES GREETING - 018E for the first tag. Once it was stamped, I punched out the white layer and decided to add a yellow base layer. I then used 3 different yellows do die cut the simple rose and finished with the ribbon and a few sprinkled gems.

For my second tag I did a folded 3 x 3 card and left it all white. I added a red die cut rose and punched the corner to add a red ribbon. I then added the sentiment from the BIRTHDAY MULTI GREETING - 219P on a die cut tag popped up on dimensionals. This tag was also sprinkled with a few gems.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my birthday gift tags.
