New Home

I played along with the Share Joy challenge this week and used the sketch to make this card. I just love pineapples and this new set is so cute with lots of fun sentiments. Pineapples are a sign of welcoming someone home so I made this card for my parents who are moving to a new house this week. I added the string behind the pineapple, but it's hard to see.

Oh My Quad!

I made this card for the Share Joy Challenge. I went with the color challenge because I just bought all the new Talyored Expression inks and wanted to use them. I used: lollipop, candy corn, lemon, and granny smith inks.This is also one of the new planner stamp sets and I just think it is so cute. It's called Oh My Quad. I made it to send to my walking partner to thank her for motivating me to keep going. We go about 5 miles when we walk together so that is why I put a 5 in the sign. simple but fast.

This is one of my favorite stamp sets from PaperTreyInk - Craft Brew. I have had more fun filling this glass and trying different techniques with it. I also think that the pointillism is one of my favorite techniques. I remember learning about it in school a long time ago. All those dots just make me happy.

Drips & Splatters

This was a messy fun card. My favorite technique was dipping yarn in paint to make the splatter lines.

Be Happy

I don't use my white embossing powder very often so this was fun t get it out and add a little color.

Starry Night

What a fun technique with ink. I love how my trees turned out. So simple.

Masters Stamp A Faire

What a fun day this is going to be. I'm being creative with the PaperTreyInk's Masters Stamp A Faire. This is my first card using gilded gold. I painted the die cut and then used Stazon ink to stamp on the basket image. I also couldn't resist painting my gold sharpie to match.
