  • Easy Watercoloring with Birthday Blooms

    So, just last week I had my Terrific Techniques class focused on heat embossing.  I always forget how fun and how many options you get with heat embossing and when I remembered this card I made recently, I figured it was another great way to share one of the awesome things you can do with […]

  • Have a Holly Jolly Christmas–Fun Card with Foiled Vellum, Glimmer Paper, and More!

    So, yesterday I was (correctly) chastised for getting behind on posting on the blog. So, I had to hop-to and get another one of my recent favorites up to share with you. Today I have another card from my Holly Jolly Greetings Class by Mail, it has lots of little details but I love how […]

  • World’s Greatest Father Card with Guy Greetings

    World’s Greatest Father Card with Guy Greetings

  • Enjoying Spring with Sheltering Tree

    Enjoying Spring with Sheltering Tree

    Are you in love with Sheltering Tree?  This was the surprise favorite from the Occasions Catalog this year and I love how versatile it is.  So I thought I’d share one of the cards we did for Stamp Club recently: The stamp set is photopolymer (that completely clear stamps) so it makes it really easy […]

  • Watercoloring a Card for Hope with Vivid Vases

    I love my blendabilities but I wanted to play a little with another form of coloring- watercoloring.  And what better stamp to play with for that than the Vivid Vases set! Tips for this card: When watercoloring with water-based ink (so using your blender pens or aqua pens) make sure to stamp your image with […]

  • Stamp Set Focus on Kinda Eclectic with the Stylin Stampin Girls

    Over at the Stylin Stampin’ Inkspiration blog, today they are doing a Stamp Set Focus – where everyone uses the same stamp set and creates something different with it.  Which is awesome because you get a bunch of ideas for one stamp set.  This time they are doing the Kinda Eclectic stamp set and if […]

  • Triple Time Stamping (almost) with Petite Petals

    So, I wanted to try a different idea for stamping where I did a background with random stamping and thought the new Petite Petals would be a fun stamp set to do it with.  I’ll admit, I completely did it WRONG but I think I covered up my oops well enough… what do you think? […]

  • A Color Challenge with the Stylin Stampin Inkspiration Girls

    So I was talking yesterday on Facebook about challenges and how they can be pretty handy when you need a little something to jump-start some craftiness.  I’m still looking for feedback on favorite challenge sites and what types of challenges you find most fun to do, but in the meantime, I have one to share […]

    You would think that the fact that I have two toddlers running around my house would mean all the cards I make are super fast cards…. Nooooooo, that would make too much sense!  ha ha! But when I was working on cards for a recent card class, I came up with this simple design that […]
