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!

Patterned Paper #18

Hi and welcome to my blog! I am back with another way to use those paper scraps that we all have laying around.



I cut strips of scrap paper and used them for a background. I stamped the car right on top of the layers, filling in some areas with a marker. The car stamp is a Tim Holtz stamp and the saying is from Just For Fun Stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Get out those scraps and see what you can do with them today.  I hope you have a great day!

Water's Edge

Hi and welcome to my blog. Today I am showing a card I made using the Penny Black Cat's Tales stamp.


I love making background techniques and I have bags full of different backgrounds that I have made over the years. This is a very old background I made where I used shimmery inks and smooshed the glossy paper into the inks. I thought this background went very well with the cattails. Sequins were added for interest.

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

Lavender and Blue

Hi and welcome to my blog! Today I am showing a butterfly card using the colors lavender and blue.



I stamped a light blue background using the Italian Poetry Background stamp from Hero Arts. I adhered the blue lattice die cut over the background. The butterfly stamp is from BoBunny. It was stamped onto a background made from Twinkling H2Os and fussy cut. Lavender and blue handmade flowers were added to the bottom of the card.

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

Patterened Paper #17

Hi and welcome to my blog. I want to show you another card that I made with my paper scraps.


I made banners from strips of patterned papers, sponged Distress Gathered Twigs ink around each one and adhered them across the top of the card. I stamped the bird from Royal King, also using Distress inks, and cut it out using the Quickutz scallop circle die. The die was also sponged with the Distress ink and pop dotted to the card. The Tweet Tweet saying is from Just For Fun Stamps and the Hello is a Stampendous Stamp.

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