Create and Inkspire July Kit – Take 3

Do you save card elements you created for another card and then decided not to use? I sure do! Nothing gets thrown away around here unless I have exhausted all of its possible uses. Today’s background was one of several stenciled backgrounds I created a year ago for a CAS card design. It spoke to […]

Father’s Day 2020

This year may not be going the way we expected it to at the end of 2019, but you can’t say it hasn’t been interesting! And though we live in strange days, there are still certain customs and rituals we continue on with for the sake of normalcy. This past Sunday was one, Father’s Day […]

Happy Birthday – a MFT Geometric card

My one and only celebrated his 19th birthday a couple weeks ago (OMG, that makes me feel so old!) and I made this card for him. His favorite colors are lime green and black and this seemed an easy way to incorporate both colors in a masculine way. I created all the triangles from MFT’s […]
