NEVER FORGET & SNEAK PEEK!!!


Hi friends!  I have a super simple card to share with all of you today using the Never Forget Fern stamp set.  I stamped the gorgeous fern leaf using Sage ink and then stamped the gorgeous sentiment over top using Icing on the Cake ink.


I added a bit of brown card stock as a layer behind to add some interest.  Notice I didn't have it go all the way to the top and bottom.  Just thought this created a bit more fun to this card.

I am going to add this over at Time Out Challenges: Nature.


Before you go, I wanted to share a peek at one of my cards for Catherine Pooler's "Hello Sunshine" release.  



Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

FATHER'S DAY CARD


Hi friends!  I have another Father's Day card to share with you all today.  It uses the Mountain Majesty stamp set by Papertrey Ink and the Wild About You die.  The Papa stamp is from the World's Best Dad stamp set by Ink to Paper.  

After snapping a photo of this card, I was thinking I should have made a brown bear.  It might have shown up better.  Oh well, next time.  :)


This photo does show the bear better.

I am going to add this over at Addicted to CAS: Father

THANKS


Hi everyone!  Did you see my card from Monday HERE?!  While I had all my supplies out, I created multiple cards using the fun inking technique I mention over on my blog post.


I love the subtle gray leaves on the white card stock.  I used the stamping off technique with Twilight ink so I could get them super light.

COURAGE...


Hi friends!  Happy Monday!  I'm sharing a card today using a cool technique to achieve this watercolor look on this gingko leaf stamp.  I saw this technique somewhere online (can't remember who/where) and needed to try it out myself.

I took my Catherine Pooler mini inks and smooshed each color onto my craft mat in rainbow order.  I placed them pretty close together when smooshing and then spritzed it with water.  I then used the smoosed ink as my ink pad.  I love the effect this gives with minimal effort.


For my background I stamped the Wild Thing background stamp using Midnight ink.  I popped up the gingko leaf using black fun foam.

I am sharing this over at Time Out Challenges: Nature.

FATHER'S DAY CARD


Hi everyone!  I have a Father's Day card to share with you all today.  I combined some Catherine Pooler products with some Papertrey Ink products.  I love it when I can mix and match companies.

The mountains, trees and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink and the awesome wolf die is from Catherine.


I stamped the mountains using Catherine's inks in Sand Castle & Over Coffee.  The trees were stamped using Sage ink.

I am adding this over at Addicted to CAS.

KURETAKE GANSAI TAMBI PEARL WATERCOLORS ON BLACK CARDSTOCK


Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  I have another card to share with you today using the Take Courage stamp set by Catherine Pooler.  I was inspired by a shirt I just bought recently.  I stamped the image using versamark ink then white heat embossed.  I then colored the image in using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Pearl Watercolors.  I love that they show up so pretty on black card stock.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!


Hi friends!  Happy Memorial Day to my friends in the US.  I have a birthday card to share with you all today using a stamp from the Take Courage stamp set by Catherine Pooler.


I wanted to try to make a fun geometric card using the corner stamp from the Take Courage stamp set and I am so happy with the result.  I love how this turned out.  I placed the stamp in my MISTI so that I could get perfect/straight stamping across my card.


I then colored in the squares at the top in rainbow order using my Zig Clean Color Brush markers and white heat embossed the sentiment from the Hey Mister stamp set!

I am adding this card over at AAA Cards for their 5th birthday celebration.


And adding it over at their sister site AAA Birthday!  I love a birthday challenge, I make and send a lot of birthday cards so this is perfect.  :)


I will also add this over at Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes.  Another one of my favorite birthday card challenges.

Hi everyone!  I love creating these fun shaker cards with a stamped image as the shaker element.  I created a similar card HERE.  This card uses the One in a Million Mom Floral stamp set.  I love that this image can be used for many different occasions even though it has Mother's Day sentiments!

YOU ARE LOVED


Hi friends!  Happy Monday!  I'm back today sharing another card using this gorgeous fern stamp from the Never Forget Fern stamp set by Catherine Pooler.  I trimmed a piece of white card stock to 3"x 4 1/4" and stamped the fern in the bottom right hand corner using Lime Rickey ink.  I then stamped the sentiment using Midnight ink from the Take Courage stamp set.


I added a strip of black card stock across the bottom of the card for a bit of interest.  Some black and white twine finish off my card.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

BE STRONG

Hi friends!  I have a fun shaker card to share with you today using the gorgeous Gingko leaf from the Take Courage stamp set by Catherine Pooler.


I started my card by stamping the gingko leaf using the gorgeous new Rouge ink pad.  I then used the coordinating die to die cut from another piece of card stock and created the shaker.  I used some seed beads to fill my shaker, but not too many to cover up the stamping.


I added the Be Strong die cut sentiment and some black and white twine to finish off my card.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
