Father’s Day Card

I hope all the dad’s out there had a wonderful Father’s Day! I couldn’t share my card before Father’s Day because my dad reads my blog! I went very serious and stately for the outside of the card…and went fun on the inside! The race car and flag are actually stickers but I used my May…

Paper Pumpkin Class

I wanted to share a quick photo from my Paper Pumpkin class that I held last Sunday.  This kit is an unbelievable deal at $20 a month.  May’s kit came with 8 laser cut cards, decorating supplies, a stamp set and envelopes.  I added a few variations of paper and embellishments and the ladies created…

Watercolor Rose

Water-coloring never fails to remind me of my childhood! I wanted to show you a slightly more grown up result using the water-coloring technique for a card.   I cut out the large rose from the Rose Wonder Thinlit Dies set to use for this card.  I also cut a square of Stampin’ Up’s watercolor paper.  You first wet the…

Color Challenge #2

As I mentioned last month I am participating in a color challenge this year! This month’s challenge was to use the colors Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, and Tangerine Tango together on a card. A while back, I had received an inspiration photo from a wonderful customer with cats made using Stampin’ Up’s Banner Triple Punch.  I was immediately drawn to…

Bow Builder Punch Expanded

What do Santa, a gobbler, a black tie event, and bows all have in common? The Bow Builder Punch, of course! 🙂 As you all know I LOVE Stampin’ Up’s punches.  I recently ordered the brand new Fox Builder Punch! While I wait oh so patiently for it to arrive I created an inspiration board…

Triple Layer Stamping

This is by far my favorite card I have created lately. I used the stamps from the Botanical Blooms set and used the triple layer stamping technique. This technique is fairly simple but is so stunning when completed. I also used this technique for my May card class and this was the card we created…

Baker’s Box

Here is a little inspiration for anyone who has (or wants) the Homemade for You Bundle! It’s a pretty known fact that I lack any kind of cooking skills…give me paper and glue any day of the week! Aside from the fact that the Baker’s box Thinlit Dies are awesome, I just HAD to buy this stamp set…

Cupcake Party

Happy Memorial Day! I wanted to share one last retiring item before May 31st! This is is a envelope and card all-in-one craft! This was decorated with the Cupcake Party Stamp Set and Cupcake Builder Punch which will be retiring tomorrow!  You can also get them together in a Cupcake Party Bundle.   I used my envelope punch…

Build – A – Birthday

This card is one I recently did at a workshop. At each class or workshop (Paper Pumpkin excluded) I try to have a more technique driven card, a treat holder and then a card that is just fun! This was my fun card because working with washi tape is always fun to me! The base…

Happy Mother’s Day

I wanted to share my two Mother’s Day cards I made this year for my very special Mom and Mother-In-Law! I tried a new technique called water stamping to create some of the flowers.  I haven’t quite perfected it so I’ll wait to give you the tutorial when I have a better system to share….
