Happy Easter


Hi there! 

What began as a brief break from blogdom turned into an 8 month hiatus! How the heck does that happen? Today I am sharing an Easter card made with Lawn Fawn's super cute and aptly named "Happy Easter" stamp set. Papers are My Mind's Eye and the sentiment was stamped with the eye poppin' neon Hero Arts ink. Love that stuff!

Hope you all have a happy and blessed Easter.

Sweet 'n Sassy - Part 2


Today I'm going to share two more projects that were made with Sweet 'n Sassy's "Poppies & Greetings" stamp set. The first card was made by stamping the single blossom repeatedly on a white panel and then coloring them with Copic Markers. I added a few pearls and rhinestones to the centers and then I added one of my favorite sentiments from the set. You can never have too many friendship cards on hand!

The second card is a pocket card made from kraft cardstock. I sewed it with my new Brother sewing machine (I am crazy in love with it! So many stitch choices and it sews on card stock like a dream.) and stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The leaves and stems were colored with Copic Markers and the poppies were paper pieced. The die cut on the insert was created on my Silhouette Cameo.


Be sure to visit Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to see this set along with all their other fantastic stamp sets!

I have one last project to share with you in a day or so.

Hope you had a terrific weekend. I have just four working days this coming week and then I am taking a much needed vacation! We'll be heading to Disneyland with my daughter, son-in-law and the grandbabies! Can't wait!

Have a terrific day!

Friend of Sweet 'n Sassy


Happy Friday everyone! Such sweet words! Today I want to share a card I created with "Sweet n Sassy's" stamp set called "Poppies & Greetings".  A few week's ago I was asked if I would be willing to participate in Sweet 'n Sassy's Friendship program. They asked me to create 3 to 4 projects with a current stamp set they would select and send to me. I couldn't have asked for a better set to work with. I love poppies and this set features so many wonderful sentiments!

This is the first of four cards that I will share with you over the next week or so. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a card base and then added pattered paper from Authentique and Basic Grey. The image was colored with Copic Markers and then cut out with a Nestability die. I added the "Praying for you" sentiment ... just one of nine that come in the set. I love the font used in these sentiments and they are just the perfect size.

Be sure to check back for more Sweet 'n Sassy goodness coming soon.

Have a terrific day!

Patriotic Eagle


Welcome to this week's Serendipity Stamps challenge! Today our mission was to create a patriotic card with a little sparkle! That's right, time to break out the glitter. I stamped the "Eagle" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the colored him with my Copic Markers. I just love how majestic this creature is.

It's hard to see, but I added Glossy Accents to the eagle's beak to make it look more realistic. It really does make a cool difference in person. The background is comprised of Basic Grey "Shine On" patterned paper and white card stock that I ran through a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  To add the sparkle, I hand cut small banners out of card stock that I covered with Scor-tape. I then coated the adhesive with Glitz Ritz micro-fine glitter and finally added some alpha stickers to spell out "USA".

Enjoy the other Design Team creations here:

Have a terrific day!

New Serendipity Stamps and Dies


Gorgeous   .   New   .    Stamps   .    Dies


I am so excited about today's blog hop! It gives us the opportunity to show off Serendipity Stamps new stamps and coordinating dies, and they are amazing!
My card features the new outline and floral dragonfly dies. You also have the option to purchase the stamp separately or to make things really easy and give you tons of versatility, you can purchase a set that includes all three.

I used the outline die to cut an ivory dragonfly and then cut patterned paper with the floral die to layer on top. I added a touch of color with Copic Markers and tiny beads for eyes. The sweet sentiment is called "More Things".

So, how would you like an opportunity to win a set of your choice?

Just be sure to leave a comment on all the blog hop sites and one lucky winner will be chosen at random!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. :-)
