Thurs. Aug.31, 2017 Hope you like this one

Well I was playing around today while waiting for the Release party tonight at Gina K. Designs.
Since butterflies always make me happy and I love the look this one sitting on the lattice, this seemed like a winner to me.

  See you tonight at 7:00 pm!

Monday, Aug. 28, 2017 Create a Scene STV17MON35

This is for challenge STV17MON35 over at StampTV.  The scene I created was a "sea"ne, with ocean water and fish from Theresa Momber's Gone Fishing stamp set.  After I fuss cut the fish I coated them with Glossy Accents.  The were mounted on a background that was water-colored and splattered with water to create the spots and bubbles.

Thank you for stopping by.

Sun. August 27, 2017 Happiness Harvest

I fussy cut all these images even though I have dies for them.  Since I was watching TV and deciding to put my scissors to use, it seemed like a fun thing to do.

I am not sure why I find this such a relaxing thing to do... but it works for me!

So happy that you stopped by for a peak.

Sat.. Aug. 26, 2017 An Unforgettable Birthday

I made this one yesterday when wanting to create a fun and colorful card.  I used the stamp set from Gina K. Design's,  Beth Silaika's Bella Elephant stamp set.  I stamped the kites with Memento Black and then colored them all with Copics.  I popped up the one in the middle with dimensional foam squares, after I cut that additional kite. A little sponging in the background that looks like the sky before I added the scallop oval with the sentiment from this same set was added to make this a sweet birthday wish!

Thank you for stopping by today!

This was entered for the Split coast Challenge SC659.  I embossed the flower after I stamped it. It is a Gina K. flower from the Sentimental Summer Kit.  The sketch is from Split Coast SC659, to which I used patterned paper found in my Gina K paper packs. The card is A2 size which is easy for mailing.

Thank you for visiting!

Friday, 8.18.2017 Formal Birthday Wishes with Gems

   I have a lot of fun creating black and white cards.  The formality makes it a good card for either a male or female.  I think it makes for a striking card, don't you agree? 

Have a fantastic weekend!

I did some paper piecing to make this card, as I start with Melanie's Holiday Frame.  The cupcake was from Claire Brennan's 
Sweet Thing set from Gina K. Design's as well.

This can be used for either a male or female, since it is a rather generic image!  Thank you for stopping by today!

Tuesday, August 15, 2017 The start of Christmas Cards Creations

These little guys were just sitting on my desk and wanting me to start on Christmas creations.  Even though it is only August, I thought "why not?"

I stamped, colored with Copics, and then fussy cut them so I could stagger them into that circle.  Does this motivate you to start on Holiday cards????

Mon. August 14, 2017 Watercolor Pencil Shavings

If you haven't seen the tutorial head over to this link and see how Cat taught us to do it.


This was quite an unusual technique, but a lot of fun.  Now my color pencils are all sharp and ready to go.  Try it!  The sentiment is from Gina K's Scripty Sayings 2 stamp set.
 I think I am going to send it to an artist friend of mine!  Hope she will get a kick out of it.

 Give it a try if you want to play along.

I watched Gina K's video yesterday and decided I would use the owl stamp I already had.  It motivated me to get into the Fall Season mood, even though it is still August! Scoring and rubbing all over with my ink pads for that wood like feeling!

Thank you for visiting.

Thursday, Aug.10, 2017 STV17MON32 Challenge

The challenge was to make a card with a gradient background.  I immediately thought of a sky with hot air balloons floating above the trees. I think this birthday card will make the recipient smile.

I hope you get a chance to play along. Today is my mother's 87th birthday!  Happy Birthday to you!

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017 Basket of Flowers- Beautiful

I did a little fussy cutting after coloring with Copic markers.  The sentiment was popped up on some dimensionals, just after I backed the sentiment with a piece of CS.
A simple CAS design is so pretty sometimes, right?    Glad you stopped by this morning.

Mon., August 7, 2017 STVKC#36 One Layer

Here is my one layer card for the STVKC#36 Challenge. Actually this was a little difficult for me to make since 3 D cards are my thing usually.  I have to admit this was kind of fun to create using the Sentimental Summer Kit from Gina K. Designs. Two stamps were used in pink and green inks .

Come back tomorrow for another card creation of mine!

Sunday, August 6, 2017 A One Layer Challenge

I made this one layer card for the STVKC#36 Challenge at Gina K. Designs !  Since I normally make my cards 3 D this was more of a challenge but actually fun to do.

I used Claire Brennan's Fine Feathers stamp set from Gina K. Designs.  It is a set from June, 2016, but it is still a fun set to work with.  Used Kraft, Brown and Warm Cocoa GKS inks.  Thank you for visiting and know I do read all the comments left here!

Saturday, August 5, 2017 So Thankful Owl

I was playing in my studio on Thursday and came up with this cute little owl on a branch.  I decided to use a Cuttlebug branch background and added some silk leaves to show off the Copic colored little owl, which was put on a brown cs circle.

I hope you like this little guy too.  Have a great weekend!

Fri., Aug. 4, 2017 Get Well --In pink and green

I have another card to share with you today, as we gear up for a relaxing weekend!

I used the fishtail tag dies to create a backdrop for my Get Well sentiment from Gina K.'s Scripty Sayings 2 stamp set.  I mounted it against some leaves that I colored with a Copic Marker.  I do like the pink and green combination, to make this wish a happy one!

Thanks for stopping.

Wed.,Aug. 2, 2017 Birthday Wishes Tag Card

Just 1 card for you today, for me to share .  It is a simple CAS one for that can be used for just about anyone. I used some brand new Fishtail dies, which created a nice tag back ground for my sentiment, which was from the Gina K. Design's More Massive set. I put a few silhouette figures on the front for interest.

Tues. August 1, 2017 Watercoloring Challenge

STV17MON31 from StampTV was a fun challenge to play around with today.  It does create a beautiful soft back ground and I even water colored the elephant.
It is a CAS card offering some hugs for a dear friend that just had some surgery. We have been good friends since our freshman high school year. I love her like a sister!
