It’s pastels for Color Throwdown 490: I felt like making a girly card: I used a craftsmart stamp and die set from Michaels and craftsmart inks. There’s a bit of glitter on the bubbles to help them stand out. I added some to the starfish in her hair as well, but after I took photos…

After a hiatus, I am back in the challenge game. I am starting off with Stamp Ink Paper’s challenge 145 – ombre. I needed a birthday card, so that’s the direction I went in: There’s a bit of glitter (clear Sakura pen) on the flames of the candles. I used Sugar Pea Designs’ Celebrate All…

some masculine cards

This is another set made when I used up a bunch of 6×6 paper pads. The theme is masculine (less frou-frou?) cards. Not much to say about these, other than I dig these dies 🙂 I used Jillibean Soup dies for the paper airplane card and the birthday one was made using Impression Obsession dies….

I picked up some Faber-Castell whipped spackle a while ago and kind of forgot about it. But one day I needed to make a birthday card and inspiration struck while contemplating a cupcake stamp.

The Fusion card challenge theme is Easter, but I chose to go with just the sketch… …and I flipped it horizontally: I needed a birthday card, and went for it. I used a We R Memory Keepers journaling card from a big set of 4×6 and 3×4 cards. I love the set and wish I…

Note: A big thanks to Jacquie for the honourable mention for CASology #242 – text! What a sweet cue card for CASology #243: Here is my card: My first version had yellow icing and a gold wrapper but the Copic marker kinda leaked and things got a bit messy. So purple it is. Then I…

Here are some dinosaur cards I made recently: My favourite part of this card was how the embossed and inked panel turned out. Kinda like dino skin, huh? Not only was it his birthday recently but the boy also got a new baby brother. I guess cause he’s only 4 maybe a card might make…
