Darling Daisy

Hello and welcome!!

Today I want to share one of the cards I made for Mother's Day using a beautiful daisy from a stamp set called Darling Daisies from Whimsy Stamps.

I stamped the flower with black ink and then colored it with my colored pencils.
The sentiment  was stamped with Garden Patina Archival Ink and finally I tied a bow using natural twine... Clean & simple beauty!!

Have a Screaming Good Time!


Hello and welcome!!

This time I'm sharing a fun and colorful birthday card with cute monsters from Your Next Stamp.

First, I stamped all the images and colored them using my colored pencils.

Then, I die cut the circles and ink sponged them using Distress Inks and glued them to the card base and trimmed off the excess.

After that, I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder and then attached it with foam adhesive. Finally, I glued the monsters and added googly eyes to the bottom rigth monster.

I LOVE this card so much, it makes me smile!!

Here's my card...

Party Til The Cows Come Home

Hello and welcome!

Today I'm sharing a one-layer birthday card. I made this card for my sister in-law. She loves cows, so every year I make her a cow themed card.

First, I stamped the cow in the middle and masked it. Then, I stamped the other two cows and masked them. After that, I ink sponged the background using distress inks. Finally, I colored the cute cows and stamped the sentiment with red ink.

Here's my card...

Happy Easter!

Hello and welcome!!

I'm back with another Easter card. This time I've used a stamp set from Papertrey Ink called So Sweet. It really is a sweet set and the bunny is the cutest. So, I had to use it on my card.

First, I stamped the bunny with white pigment ink. The nose, cheeks, whiskers, and sentiment were stamped using Archival inks. To finish off my card, I've added a twine bow and glued wiggle eyes.

Here's my card...

Give Thanks!

Hello and welcome!! Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving.

I made a card to celebrate Thanksgiving (one of my favorite holidays).

The polka dots background, the word 'thanks' and the edge of the leave were gold heat embossed and the pretty colors on that leave were created blending some distress inks.

Here's my card...
