Racking up another birthday....

>> Monday, August 2, 2021


Have I mentioned I will never tire of this POOL CUE, BALL & RACK - 469K? It is really one of my al time favorites and is perfect for so many in my family.

This week I used the POOL CUE, BALL & RACK - 469K stamped on white card stock and colored with copics. I added the RACKING UP BIRTHDAY GREETING - 498D and cut the panel down with a stitched die cut and popped it up on dimensionals..

I then cut the green card stock and punched some circles out of it to look like a billiard table. The base is the WOOD GRAIN BACKGROUND - 626P on a tan card stock and rounded those corners.

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


Big Deal Birthday

Happy Friday!

I hope your week has gone well! Today I have a birthday card to share. This would be perfect for the card playing person or just a great masculine card. I had the lg red heart left from probably Valentine's Day & thought it would work w/ all the card suits on my border. 

I stamped the individual card suits w/ red & black on the die cut frame, then inserted a black panel inside. The big greeting was stamped onto the heart shape & the 5 cards were fussy cut & added to the bottom. Pretty simple & didn't take a long time.

Here's the inside. 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

paper:  Staples 110# white, black, red
ink:  Memento tuxedo black, love letter
accessories: Rubbernecker Rectangle Stitch  dies, Memory Box Grand Heart die



Gnome One Like You!

Good morning!

I used a separate background piece for the inside of the window and some lace for curtains.
To do this I cut out the window panes and popped up the image panel over the background with "curtain" glued to the back of window.  It gives a little depth better seen in person.
The butterfly and mushrooms are glittered.
The lacey border is from Concord and 9th.  I used some purple pearls in the lacey holes.

My next card is an easel card done with a single die.
The glossy paper for the frame die cut was colored with alcohol inks first, the other matte paper for the flower and butterflies die cut was sprayed with inks first then die cut.  I sponged the edges on the card with Green Brilliance. The die including frame, card base, flowers and butterflies is from Memory Box in 1 set.
Thanks for visiting!



It's July, but Fall is Coming!

>> Wednesday, July 28, 2021

I am so ready for Fall so I thought I would share a Fall card today to change up from our Summer cards.   

I started by stamping the Wood Grain Background in Vintage Photo Distress Ink, then used a SU! circle punch to make three openings.  I lined up the circles on another piece of card stock and stamped these three images:

* Winter Trees  (I added in Fall colored leaves to make it Fall Trees instead)

*Long Tall Wheat 

*4 in 1 Harvest Design  (just the sunflowers)

After water coloring the sunflowers, I added in some gold microbeads. A bit of sponging around the wood and a few words from Goodbye Summer Hello Fall Greeting, and I was done. 

I can't believe school starts back around here in just two weeks!  Where does time go?




Flakey Friends

>> Tuesday, July 27, 2021

Hi Everyone,

I'm celebrating Christmas in July with this simple holiday card.  Goodness, do I like making Christmas cards when I'm not strangled by a long list of recipient names, and it's not mid!  Every year I vow to make a head start, and I guess this is my start this year.  Let's see if I can keep it going!

I began by stamping, coloring and fussy cutting Stretch the Round Button Snowman, along with the Flakey Friends Winter Greeting. 

The background was made by stamping Interlocking Snow and Easy Dot Background in different purple inks to match the snowman, and I simply added a punched border and a die cut snowflake.  Easy Peasy!

Have you made any holiday cards this month?  If you need some inspiration, pop on over to DRS Designs and have a look around!

Thanks for stopping by & stay cool!




Just a friendly note....

>> Monday, July 26, 2021


This whimsical SEA GRASS - 128L is great to add to a card and add some sponged color to represent sky colors.

I embossed the SEA GRASS - 128L in white and added the DANDELION PUFF - 380G also in white embossing. Additionally the FRIENDLY NOTE GREETING - 790D was also embossed in white.

Next I sponged purple at the top, pink in the middle and mustard on the bottom.

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


Pig Time!

>> Thursday, July 22, 2021

Good morning!
Hey, you guys don't mind more beach themed cards do ya? 
These so make me think of vacation somewhere,
ANYWHERE would be nice!
For this card I've used DRS stamps: Hula Pig, Palm Tree,
I stamped the pig first then masked, next I started stamping and masking the Palm trees.
I left the mask on then stamped the sail boats.  
I used a circle mask to create the sun/horizon using blending brushes for the inks.
The water and everything else are done with Copic Markers.
I drew in a shoreline.
The dies I used today are from Rubbernecker and Spellbinders.

My next card is a slimline card
done with DRS stamps: Sea Grass, 4 in 1 In The Sky

The slimline card works very well for this little scene I think.
I stamped the Sea Grass and Leonard first then masked and stamped the dock, lighthouse 
sailboat.  I masked the dock and stamped in some extra birds.  For the bird between the buildings I stamped another one and cut it out and placed it over the stamped image on the card.
I used a torn paper towel edge to make the clouds in the sky using a sponge and Brilliance Sky Blue Ink.  The sun was drawn in using a circle template and Copic Markers.  I drew in a rough horizon line then colored with Copic.  The waves coming in to shore are done with a Snow Pen, puffed with heat then glittered with Stickles.
I actually used the kite from 4 in 1 In The Sky for Leonard's kite as it is a bit bigger.
Thanks for visiting today!
