Dig it Out or Use it Up Hop

The amazing Courtney Kreeber has a Facebook group that is a wonderful community of cardmakers. Today, some of us from the group are having a hop in an effort to dig out supplies we haven’t used in awhile or to focus on trying to use something up. You should have gotten here from Jennifer Holder […]

Angel of Mercy with Jan’s Digi Stamps

  Many of us are feeling helpless during this whole Covid19 thing… watching as doctors and nurses, EMTs and lab workers are putting themselves in harms way, hour by hour, day by day. As Jennifer McGuire says, card making is our superpower and I am some of my friends are putting ours to good use! […]

MFT Birthday Project – Flowers – Take 2

I’m back again with another card for the Birthday Project challenge at My Favorite Things. This time my card features the stamp set from MFT called Circle Scribble Flowers, along with the coordinating dies. I’m still in a yellow mood, so I die cut the flowers first from yellow cardstock and then stamped the coordinating […]

Sending Hugs – Jane’s Doodles Magnolia

Two posts in one day?!? Hard to believe, I know! If you saw my last post, you know that Jane’s Doodles is having a challenge and the theme is Spring. And also like my last post, I have a friend that could use a pick me up. And what else could pick you up better […]

Sending Hugs – Jane’s Doodles Plumeria

This week’s challenge at Jane’s Doodles is Spring. This Plumeria set was perfect to make a springy card to help a friend who really needed to see some flowers. I don’t know her well so I wasn’t sure what types or colors of flowers she likes the most, but I’m hoping this makes her feel […]

Friendship Hop 3 card bonanza!

The amazing Courtney Kreeber has organized an awesome hop of crafters in the community that you may not have heard of before along with the help of Renee Moran. I’m thrilled to be a part of the group! The first hop has a friendship theme to bring us together, especially as most of us don’t […]

MFT Birthday Challenge – Feeling Sentimental

This month’s birthday challenge at MFT is text based only, no images! Initially I thought that was a tough challenge but then the mojo started flowing and the ideas kept coming! This is my first attempt, using MFT Birthday Speech Bubbles in a rainbow of colors. I added strips of diagonal  striped paper from MFT’s […]

Batty Without You

Not *exactly* a Halloween card, though the timing is fitting! This vampire cutie is from a Close to My Heart set called Creepy Creatures, which was easy to color up with Prismacolor pencils as most of the image stamped black. I used 2 sizes of Inverted Scalloped Circle dies from Spellbinders to cut a black […]

MFT Delightful Deer

My Favorite Things had a couple of challenges this week that I miraculously thought I could pull off… in one card! Take a look!   I used the My Favorite Things Delightful Deer dies to cut the deer in white and inked them with a few shades of brown inks. I whipped up an ink […]

T-Rex Birthday

This card was so much fun to make but even more fun to give! I used a Silhouette cut file, #204997, by Jennifer Rush to make this fun shaped card. The edges of each piece are ink blended and the top layers are popped up on foam tape for dimension. The birthday hat was a […]

Happy Birthday techie card

Some of you know that I have only one child, a son that means more to me than life itself. What you may not know about me is that I also have almost a dozen “adopted” children, the result of being Band Mom to a high school marching band. Though the 4 years I gave […]

MFT Color Challenge 122 – Prehistoric Fun

MFT Color Challenge 122 – Prehistoric Fun

Here is my card for the current MFT color challenge and the inspiration for it: I used the MFT Cloud stencil to create the background with Distress Oxide inks. Then I stamped images from the MFT Prehistoric Fun stamp set. I watercolored the images with Tombow markers in coordinating colors. I intended to use the […]

MFT Summer Camp Day 1 & MFT Color Challenge 121

Take 2 on Day 1 of MFT’s Summer Camp! This is another fully watercolored card, painted with the 36 color set of Gansai Tambi’s. I need to use these more often cause I just saw they now offer a 48 pan set but I refuse to buy it (yet) with so much paint left in […]

MFT Summer Camp Day 1 – Watercolor

I’m making an effort to participate in MFT’s Summer Camp every day this week. I had so much fun with the first day’s event of watercolor, you may see more than one card from the effort! This card, using MFT’s Friends in the Forest, is my favorite!!! I used my 36 Gansai Tambi watercolors on […]

Watermelon Card Set

Quick post today with a card set inspired by Chari Moss in a set she created for Lawn Fawn. Here are side by side pictures, first mine than Chari’s. She used dies to make her seeds, putting black paper behind the pink to use the negative space. She also used dies for most of the […]

Missing You Always beach scene

This card is hopefully going to serve two purposes… one, to tell my friend I miss her, and two, for her to re-purpose and send to her daughter 🙂 I was inspired by a color combo for the current challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges. And there are so many beach and summer challenges this week, […]

MFT Birthday Challenge – You’re How Old?

*Cough, cough* Whoa, sure is dusty around here! Dusting off the blog today to post a card I made for the monthly MFT Birthday Project Challenge. I used the MFT Balloon Strings background stamp and heat embossed in Wow Fine Silver embossing powder. I used MFT Block Happy Birthday Dienamics to cut the letters from […]
