• A Slothful Pair

    One of my favorite woodblock stamps from the new summer catalog is the Sloth. He is just too darn cute! He’s so detailed, that if you’re an amazing color-er (is that a thing??), then you could have some serious fun, but if you’re like me, coloring impaired, he’s still a snap to color! The first […]

  • Video: Two Card Backgrounds in One

    There’s nothing quite like two for one. Two candy bars for the price of one, two donuts for the price of one, two…sorry, I really like my sugar. ;) I also like getting two cards for the effort of one! The “star” (ha, couldn’t help myself) of today’s card set is the Star Confetti Fancy […]

  • Bright Bee-day

    I’m not gonna lie people, I usually avoid using stencils. I’m not sure if it’s a of out-of-sight, out-of-mind thing, or the fact they just intimidate the heck out of me, or maybe a combination, but the fact stands – I don’t use stencils much. However, when I started playing around with the Busy As […]

  • Birthday Wreath

    I often find that certain stamps I pass over quickly become one of my favorites to use. Such is the case with the Antique Bee and Flowers. I’m not sure if it’s just that it’s a woodblock stamp, and because I store mine in drawers, they end up being rather “out of sight, out of mind.” In any case, when I did take it out to play, I had some fun.

  • Timeless Classic

    There are certain stamps that are almost maddeningly perfect, and today’s featured stamp, Wallpaper Pattern Bold Prints, is just one of those. I had the darnedest time deciding on just how I wanted to showcase it for today – embossed, patterned, watercolored, etc – and in the end, I just decided to add a little ink and water and let the stamp speak for itself.

  • You Age Well

    Like any other self-respecting card maker, I enjoy sending my friends and family some of the creations that I labored hours over. ;) However, I enjoy sending these labors of love even more when I have a quirky – or dare I say, cheesy? – sentiment to add to them. The new Irreverent Birthday Messages […]

  • VIDEO: Quick Mini Valentines

    When I was little, I used to obsess over all things mini – mini stapler, mini tape, etc., – and so the new Love Note Pair Fancy Dies were pretty much love at first sight for me (no pun intended ;)).

  • January My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #6 + Giveaway!

    One of the things I love about this month’s kit is how versatile it is – the flowers can be used a solid or outline layers, or double up on top of each other! For today’s pair of cards, I layered up my flowers, but I did it using the same ink color for both layers.

  • Friend Friday with Chameleon – Week 3

    While Chameleon pens are perfect for coloring images (especially for the coloring-impaired such as myself), they aren’t limited to just that. For my card today, I decided to use the pens to create an ombre look on my die cuts.

  • Video: Creating Your Own Shaker Elements

    I think I have a problem with heat embossing…I can’t seem to stop using it! Today’s card shows how you can heat emboss on top of an already heat embossed layer, as well as use some heat embossing to help create your own shaker elements for a shaker card. To start off, I die cut […]

  • VIDEO: Snowy Christmas Light Up Scene

    Today’s card is a fun one – it’s beautiful on its own, but there’s a super fun interactive element! For today’s card, I started off by creating a background using the Star Confetti die as a stencil, and heat embossing a background using Versamark and Sparkle embossing powder on kraft cardstock. I then stamped some Snowy […]
