When I saw this digital stamp from Sweet November Stamps, I fell in love with it! It just screams old timey winter scenes to me and I love it. It's called Vintage Christmas Shopper but, since it's past Christmas I decided to make it a winter themed card.
When the Altenew Inspiration Challenge for this month came out, I sat down and colored this flower. I loved the effect I was able to get with it but, I was really stumped on how to take this card even further. That was until I got the Bed of Roses Stamp Set in the mail recently from a recent clearance sale! I thought of the My Favorite Things current sketch challenge and got to work!
Hi y'all! I'm participating in my first Craft Roulette Challenge! This birthday card is pretty different from my normal style but, I think it's super fun! The colors were inspired by the Color Hue Challenge.
Hi folks! I hope everything is going good for y'all! My kid's physical therapist recently got engaged and it was the perfect reason to break out this Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Bachelorette stamp! I've been itching to use it! I chose the colors based off remembering a color challenge wrong. Oops! It was nice to bring the pzazz out in this card though!
Hey y'all and Happy New Year! Today I'm here with a card heavily inspired by the Hero Arts Stay Crafty Challenge! I knew I wanted to do a shaker card that was outside of the box. So today I decided to have my penguin skating on the frozen lake! Boy was this card a labor of love and trial and error. I'm so thankful it turned out the way it did, even it took several hours and taking reconstructive surgery. Lol.
Happy New Year's Eve everyone! I hope all of you had a wonderful year. I was fortunate enough to spend lots of time crafting this year. The making of this card:I stamped the Altenew Thank You 2022 stamp set that I received as a surprise gift in the mail. This gift helped push me back… Continue reading Pink & Green Floral Thanks
Merry Christmas y'all! I don't know about you but, our December was jam packed this year! I actually didn't get around to making cards until the days leading up to Christmas and on Christmas. So, my apologies for those receiving cards late this year. It's the thought that counts though, right?
Hi everybody! I had the opportunity to participate in Inktoberfest again! This time we experimented with using reinkers as alcohol inks! I'll admit that I had no clue what I was doing with this originally but, I was intrigued and determined! Low and behold I did it and was so much fun. It was way outside my comfort zone but, I'm thankful I did it!
Hi y'all! I'm so excited to have had the opportunity to be a guest on the Market Forte YouTube Channel for inktoberfest! I decided to go with autumn themed cards and I'm in love with them! I showcased distress oxide techniques. The first card is a distress oxide Ink resist card. I first clear embossed… Continue reading Inktoberfest Day 3
Hi y'all! I'm back with a guest designer for my favorite challenge, Color Hues! I won their Chocolate and Mint challenge. So, I get to join them for this one! Brown and Yellow. I'll be honest, I did struggle a bit with creating something unique for this challenge. I don't really have much brown or yellow in my day-to-day life. After hours going into trying different versions, I came up with a CAS design. I would've saved a lot of time if I knew that in the beginning! Lol.
