Freshly Made Sketches 334

Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches 334: It looks simple, but go and take a look at what people have made with it! (link above) Here is my take: I kept it simple with a My Favorite Things star graduate sentiment stamp and some embossing. Time to get some anti static powder! I’m…

wedding cards summer 2017

Marriage! People do it, and they often appreciate cards to acknowledge the occasion. Here are some such cards: I love those vellum hearts. I would probably put it on everything I make. (The above card is available here). This one was made to match the colours of the invitation, light yellow and a wine colour….

cards for a 32nd birthday

Just a quick share of a couple of cards. I was asked to make birthday cards a while ago for a 32nd birthday… my own! I am a big fan of the bright neon pink and the way the stenciled bunting came out. I didn’t have my Halloween crafting supplies on hand otherwise they probably…

girly birthday memory album

I put together this album for the 2nd birthday of my friend’s daughter. I love this paper (DCWV Confetti collection) and was super excited to make a project bigger than a card with it. Of course, I did make a matching card to go with it though… 🙂 Here’s a slideshow of the inside:  …

graduation cards

Here are the graduation cards I made for the fair I was at this past weekend: They are all simple, but kinda cute. The gold stripes are just stenciled with gold ink, and check out that adorable grad cap on the zero! Jillibean Soup makes shaker cards pretty easy! I went with a silver theme….

UPDATE: 01 May 2017 – Design Team Pick (thank you!) It’s clean and simple wedding for Stamp Ink Paper #96: Here is my card:   I stenciled some gold dots then added some cute paper butterfly embellishments. I tried to get a fading effect with the dots, but I need some practice 🙂 Thanks for…

CASology 245 – grow

What a cue card for CASology #245: Timely and full of potential! Here is what I came up with: The idea I had going in to this design was someone grateful to a parent or mentor who has helped along the way and shaped the person they are today. I pepped up the stamping with…

Freshly Made Sketches #282

I absolutely love Cecile’s sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #282: How adorable is that!? Once again, I used the opportunity to make a Mother’s Day card: I know it’s a holiday of flowers, but moms are made of all sorts of women and not all women like flowers or pink. Here I went with stars,…

Color Throwdown #434 – green, gold & black

It’s green, gold & black for Color Throwdown #434: Here is what I did with that awesome combination: It was super fun to stamp all of those four leaf clovers 🙂 I think they are super cute. It is an older Inkadinkado stamp. Thanks for stopping by!

Stamp Ink Paper #90 – shakers

What a neat challenge for Stamp Ink Paper 90: The DT cards are fantastic and I am sure the other cards made will be fantastic too. Here is mine: I inked the card stock with some Hampton Art inks (grey and purple). The planet and rocket ship are coloured with Copics. I used a Jillibean…

Color Throwdown #430

Hello again! It’s a lovely combination for Color Throwdown #430: Turquoise, sage green, gold/kraft and dark brown. I can dig it! Here is the card I made using those colours: This seemingly simple card took me a few tries because I kept getting ink everywhere it shouldn’t be. I guess that teaches me to use…

CASology 236 – romance

CASology 236 is keeping the love vibes of February going with this week’s cue card: I took things a bit literally because I had a wooden embellishment that fit the bill:I inked the wooden embellishment with some gold. I die cut some hearts around the heart and arrow stamp and placed some gold vellum behind…
