When I saw this stamp from Rubbermoon I just had to have it!  If you are like me, you hate panty hose and I would rather stay home than put those “beasts” on.   Thank goodness I can go to work in jeans!  I can also relate to the lady eating those chocolates (also Rubbermoon).  Yummy!!!!

The image was colored with Prismacolor pencil crayons and Taltine (OMS) and mounted to layers of c/s cut with Spellbinders dies.  The small scallop punch at the top and bottom is from EK Success.  The background paper is from Magenta.

I can’t believe that summer is almost over.  This is the first autumn card I’ve made.  The chipboard tree is colored with Distress ink and I’ve added some Flower Soft to resemble autumn leaves.

I absolutely love this image from Magenta.  They really do make the most awesome stamps captivating so much detail.  There really isn’t a lot one has to do to have their images ready for a card.  I sponged on a little Distress ink and that was it.  Matched with the perfect papers, and voila an instant card.  (I didn’t choose the papers or image.  This was from my last Bar au Cartes class at the local ss).

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Cheep, Cheep


That would be as in birdie,  not as cheap stamping stuff. LOL. 

I used some Magenta chipboard to make this card.  It’s the first time I’ve used chipboard and I really like the look.  I inked the pieces with Distress inks and of course just had to add some Stickles.  A birdie needs his bling too!

Have a super day!

I Love A Sale


Who doesn’t love a good sale, eh?  This ATC I made for a monthly swap I participate in.

I’ve had this stamp for ages and have never used it.  Feels good to ink up some neglected rubber.  LOL

Have a great day!

Color Me Purple


Are you seeing a pattern here?  LOL.  Another purple fairy card.  I love this Stampingbella stamp  She’s just too cute!  I’ve used Prismacolor pencil crayons and Taltine (OMS) once again.  Really, I will try something else soon, but this just works so darn well for me.  The punch for the border  is from Martha Stewart and the corner punch is by EK Success.  I’ve also added a small Magenta stamp to the background .

Please stop by again.  And of course, your comments are always much appreciated.

Creative hugs,

Another Fairy


I’m not sure why, but I seem to be buying/borrowing a lot of fairy stamps lately.  Maybe it’s because I’m a grandma now and am loving the “cute” LOL.

This Stampingbella stamp is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Taltine (OMS).

Hope this has inspired some of you to do some stamping today!

For the Fisherman in your Life

Basic Grey & PeelOffs

Basic Grey has the most awesome papers and I spotted this sheet at my local ss and JUST HAD TO HAVE IT!

I took another sheet of brown background paper and added some Distress Soot Black and distressed the edges a bit.  I then added some Peel Offs that I colored here and there with an olive green Touch marker.  I painted the boat with some US Artquest Mica Magic watercolor paints.  A real quick card but it does have some punch to it and would make a perfect guy card, don’t you think?

Have a super day!
