Grown up birthday card

this was done for my mothers birthday. it's rich, elegant, sophisticated, and appears complex. just like her.

i love this nature set by SU. i used blender pens w/ chalk to color it for that perfect "soft" look. colors are feminine and warm. any chance i get to use my embossing folders with my cuttlebug, i jump on. LOVE the look!

happy birthday mom! here's to many, many more!

Fairy birthday card

this card was made for the sweetest little girly on her birthday. she is an absolute princess, BUT, this little fairy stamp is the closest i have to a princess. after i colored her with blender pens & chalk, i used sakura glitter pens & stickles to make it sparkle, just like her personality does.

happy birthday, charley!

Fathers day card


super easy cards. i got the idea from a card i saw made by layering ribbons. i decided to use paper instead. i dug through my scrap drawer & pulled out the colors i liked together and cut one edge with a scallop border punch. ink distressed them all and there we have it!

Fathers day card

this was made for my fantastic mr. he is the kind of guy who loves to get dressed up and collects ties. he is also the kind of guy who adopts his wife's kids from a previous marriage to make sure they have the best father figure around & that they always know that he considers them "his" kids. the kind of guy women dream of meeting. yep, he's a pretty fantastic guy. know what else he is? MINE.

i made my own patterned paper (background) by stamping ties in a pattern on white cardstock. these stamps are 2-step stamps. that means the outline is one image & the fill in is the other. for the main image of the tie, i stamped just the outline onto patterned paper & cut it out. the rest of it is layered & ink distressed.

to all the fathers out there, happy day to you!

Be original card

so this was me trying to be creative. honestly, i'm not too keen on the outcome.

started with white cardstock. stamped the fish in walnut ink and the original fish in a yellow. then i got out my sponges & chalk ink to play for a bit. started sponging at the bottom of the paper with the darkest blue,worked up to mid blue, finished up top with lighter blue.
