Who Doesn’t Want To Have Good Times..

Hello everyone! I’m back today with a card for CAS(E) this Sketch! #79. This sketch was created by Chrissy Larson.


I just received my Stampin’ Up! shipment with a lot of goodies.  I wanted to showcase their new in colors.  I didn’t have time to actually do any water-coloring so I use a stamp set that would give that same type of look.

Good Times


I also used Papertrey Ink’s Splat stamp set to add the sentiment.  I am pleased with how my card turned out.

Are You One Of A Kind?

Hello everyone!  I’m back again today with another Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #168: Baby Wipe Stamping!!  I’m so excited about this Make It Monday.  Ashley taught us how to use baby wipes to do our multicolor stamping.  I had a blast with this technique today.

Take a look:

baby wipes and reinkers

First I added Stampin’ Up!’s new in colors to my baby wipe.  I randomly added the ink to the baby wipe.

I wanted to make sure my card looked a little different then Ashley’s, so I stamped my sentiment using the same baby wipe.  I used this piece of card stock as my scrap to make sure my stamps were inking up properly.  I love the colors on this butterfly and the sentiment.  Can you see how each stamp has different colors.  No two stamps are the same.

Closer look at my butterfly.  The colors are awesome!

Closer look at my sentiment. These colors are delicious.

I absolutely love how my card turned out. This was such a great technique to try.  The look reminds me of water-coloring, which everyone who knows me, knows I LOVE water-coloring.

What’s Popping, “YOU” Are!!!

Hello everyone!!  It’s a new week, which means new Muse Challenge.  I’m excited again because I was given honorable mention from the ladies over at the Muse Challenge for last weeks card!!  I get all giggly when I see my name and card showcased.   The winners and the other honorable mentions are talented women and I’m so happy for all of them.

So this week I’m back again with another card for this week Muse Challenge #71.  Our Muse for this week is Therese Calvird.  Stacking die cuts are what we are challenged to do.

Take a look at Therese’s card:


I love how she was able to match the lines in her background with the lines on her hello’s.  Everything follows so nicely and it looks so pretty.  I tried this same technique with my card.

Take a look at my card:

You are a true friend

I created this card using all of the Stampin’ Up! in colors.  I used Simon Says Stamps wide stripes stamp to created the background.  I die cut 5 of the you’s and stacked them with a stamp you.  I added the “you” to the background and aligned the colors on the you with the background for a seamless finished.

You are a true friend closeup

Here is a close up of the stacked” you”.  I stamped the sentiment right under the you so that it looks natural.  This technique was fun to do so I might try it again on another card.

Let me know what you think of my card.

Stencil Class Day 4

Today is the last day to my online stencil card class.  Today’s assignment was to use any of the techniques we learn and create a card.  I choose to use the free stencil that was given to us.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the stencil. Then I use sponge daubers to apply the ink for each of the flowers.  Tell me what you think?

You Make Me Happy

I really had a great time in this class.  I learned a lot about stenciling.  I will continue to use stenciling more on my cards.

Stencil Class Day 2

So today is day 2 of my 4 day stencil class.  I’m learning a lot.  Today’s class we learned different techniques on how to use stencils.  I tried a couple of them and didn’t like the results so I’m going to keep trying until I get it right.  There was one technique that was easy enough not to mess up.  Guess what that technique is?  It’s so simple, you will laugh.  Have you guessed it yet?  Well here is the answer, its COLORING.  Yes, simple children’s play, Coloring with colored pencils!!  How could I mess that up?

The stencil used to make that card, I didn’t have.  I’m going to get that stencil today, but in the meantime, I had a heart stamp that would do just fine.  So, I made a card with the heart stamp from the ” Perfect Pennants” stamp set.  I love how the card came out.  The heart stamp is so full and small to me.  I want to stamp it everywhere!  I cant wait to see how it will look once I stencil the hearts.  Take a look at the stamped card.

Hearts Enjoy


How precious!! I used the new in-colors ink pads to create the color hearts.  Aren’t those colors yummy!  Tell me what you think of my stamped image.

Holiday Card Workshop Day 3 – Clean and Simple

I have to tell you that I’m loving my online card class.  I’m learning so many different techniques that I can’t wait to share them with you.  Today’s card theme was clean and simple.  I must say clean and simple is easy and delightful.  I want to make more cards using this style.


After making this card, I decided to make a couple more for the ladies that I swap with.  I hope they love the card as much as I do.
