• 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.

    There are certain stamps that are almost maddeningly perfect, and today’s featured stamp, Wallpaper Pattern Bold Prints, is just one of those.

  • 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: 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 […]
