Stockings

Hi and welcome to my blog. We have a wintry day here today so I made a Christmas card using this cute House Mouse stamp!


I stamped the image near the bottom of the card, used an exacto knife to cut across and in between the stockings. I used scissors to cut around the bottoms of the stockings. The image was colored using Tombow markers. The nails were colored with a silver metallic paint pen. I used word stickers for the saying. Blue card stock was adhered on the inside of the card. 

This is how the card looks when it is opened.



Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Patterned Paper #21

Hi! I hope you are having a good day. I am back again with some cards I made using up those patterned paper scraps I have everywhere! I was a glutton for punishment using this leaf die to inlay all these tiny pieces! I love using this leaf die from Gina Marie, so once I started I was on a roll as you can see.





Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope this has given you some ideas on how you might use up those paper scraps. Have a lovely day!

Patterned Paper #20

Hi and welcome to my blog. Today I am showing another way to use up those paper scraps I have stored in many ziplock bags!


I used a fun new stamp from Technique Junkies that I recently bought at a stamp show. It was colored with alcohol markers. I added some enamel dot eyes to the cat. I cut one and a half inch squares and placed them at different angles across the top of the card. The saying was computer generated and cut out by using an unbranded dye.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

White Christmas

Hi and welcome to my blog. I have been making Christmas cards throughout the year so that I don't get in a panic to make cards right before the season. I want to show you a Christmas card I made using a House Mouse stamp that I have just used for the first time.



I used two embossing folders to add texture to the card. The white frame and the swirl tree dies are from Memory Box. I punched out two snowflakes and added clear Stickles glitter to them. The image was colored with alcohol markers, fussy cut and added to the card. I  made "marshmallows" by using small square pop dots and adding clear Stickles glitter to them too.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

Time To Celebrate

Hi and welcome to my blog. I want to show you a card that I made for a couple of challenges. As usual I am in need of birthday cards so I made a birthday card using a stamp from the Penny Black stamp set called Time To Celebrate.



I made the background using a splattered dot stencil and light blue ink. The frame is a Spellbinder die. I colored the image using alcohol markers.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are having a good day!

A Surprise Inside

Hi and welcome to my blog. I saw this on line a few months ago and I had to try it! I love cards that move or have a surprise inside. First of all here is the outside of the card. I used a bird image that I love that has now been retired. I used alcohol markers to add a little color to the image.



Here is the inside of the card.


These flowers are folded and an edge is cut off to form the flower. Then they are glued together and attached to the card. Here is a link to the instructions.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

I would like to enter this card in the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge:  Something Inside.

Patterned Paper #19

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. I am showing another card where I used my patterned paper scraps. With all these patterned paper cards I have made I still have not made a dent in my scrap papers! LOL! I love this time of year with all the wonderful Fall colors. I hope that the trees will be pretty around here this year.



I found this frame from Memory Box that I had already cut out. I punched the leaves from various patterned paper scraps. The saying is from Just For Fun Stamps and the owl stamps are from Darcie. The owls were colored using alcohol markers.

Thanks so much for popping in. I hope you have a fabulous day!
