Distress Inks….

17 Apr

Good Morning!

I hope you all are having a great week!  I have been busy at work and haven’t been in my craft room all week but I thought I would share a card that I made last weekend with you.

Dragonfly Vine 2I love all the colors in this background paper that I made using my distress inks.  It is such a cheerful looking card.  I of course reached for one of my favorite stamps, Dragonfly Vine.  I have used this stamp SO many times!

Thanks for peeking in!

Dragonfly Vine…

Hey Blog Friends…

I haven’t shared any cards that I have made lately with my beloved Stampendous Dragonfly Vine stamp!  How wrong is that???

Dragonfly VineThis is truly one of my favorite stamps and I always make sure I have several cards in my stash using this stamp.  The design paper I used for this card is by My Mind’s Eye, Collectable… I am sure you know by now My Mind’s Eye paper is my number 1 favorite!

I hope you are all having a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Nope I have to work until I’m dead… I stayed home with my children until they were able to look after themselves with out a baby sitter.  But I do get to make retirement cards for my co-workers!  the lucky buggers!

RetirementThis was a snap to put together with that lovely Marianne Designs die cut in the back and using the lovely happy retirement stamp by Stampabilities.

I am looking forward to a busy weekend but I know I am not going to have much crafty time as I am teaching class at the Cutting Garden tomorrow and then I am helping out with the Yard Sale at the Garden on Sunday.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning!

I don’t make baby cards often but I always like to have a couple in my stash ready for when I need them.  This is a new Hampton Art stamp I picked up recently.  There is no coloring involved so it makes it so easy to make up a few cards in no time at all.

Baby 001I used my Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet ink for the baby carriage and a page out of my all time favorite Recollections Garden Floral paper pad.  I finished it off with a lovely Marianne Design die cut, some nice white wide ribbon and a flower made on my Cameo.

Ta dah!!  Too Easy!

By the way…. if anyone knows where Spring went, can you let me know please?  We are just getting over 24+ hours of snow and freezing rain.  I just can not tell you how sick I am of this terrible long winter we have had this year!

Have a great day all!

Happy Sunday!

I just had to post this picture that Tony took this morning of the ice clinging to our close line in our back yard.  One minute it was raining and the next there is a coat of ice covering everything!


Hope you all have a great day!  I will be back later to share something crafty with you.



Penny Black – Botanical Notes

23 Mar

Hi Blog Friends,

I thought I would pop in to share a card that I made this weekend using my new Penny Black Botanical Notes stamp that I picked up from The Cutting Garden this weekend.  I finally had a chance to bring out my Inktense water color pencils to see how they would work on this lovely stamp.

Botanical Notes 001I am really pleased with how this turned out, the colors are nice and vibrant using these pencils.  Kim also has these in stock in a couple of different size packs.

Botanical Notes 002I stamped the image twice and cut the colored image out and popped it up on top.  This will make a lovely Mother’s day card to send off to England to Tony’s mom.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by!
