Pretty in Pink

It was a dreary overcast day when I was playing around  and practicing my watercoloring....and using my Aqua Painter, so I decided to make something bright and cheery.  So put your sunglasses on and gaze at my pink creation....shades of Lovely Lipstick and Mango Melody to be exact. This stamp set I used is called… Continue reading Pretty in Pink

Humming Along

  One of the gifts my husband and I received at Christmas was an Amazon Echo Dot, so now I can out loud and I have somebody that will listen and respond...if I call Alexa’s name that is.  So we’ve asked for the weather report and to play music.  So I get to hum along....well,… Continue reading Humming Along

Taking a Bird Break

Taking a break from the Christmas madness to bring you some beautiful birds. They kind of happened by accident.  A class to make Christmas gift bags and treat holders was cancelled when life got in the way and several people weren’t able to come.  It left just one....my friend Karen.  She loves birds.  Blue birds.… Continue reading Taking a Bird Break

It’s a Seasonal Thing….Or Not

Earlier this week I posted about my simple wreath card and the Wishing You Well Stamp set.  You can see that post HERE.  But I still wasn’t done making cards with this stamp set. I was using it for a card class, so I was looking at all the different possibilities....read that “seasons” to use… Continue reading It’s a Seasonal Thing….Or Not

Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

It’s another Mix-It-Up Monday.  Don’t know what that is?  It’s when I take an OLD (retired) Stampin’ Up Product and mix it up with a NEW (in the current catalog) product. Let’s face it - we spend money on buying things we love so why should we put them away when they aren’t current anymore?… Continue reading Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

Pretty as a…Rusted Pitcher?

I’ve had a lot of fun the past two weeks....I’ve been making cards like a crazy woman. Every time I get a new stamp set and new Designer Series Paper, I just want to sit down and see how many combinations of stamps and paper I can come up with to make a different card.… Continue reading Pretty as a…Rusted Pitcher?

Out of the Pile….Tropical Cards

I’ve been busy this week.  Last week I stamped and cut....a lot.  I shared the picture of my cutting endeavors in my last post....but here is it again. These were all done from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set and coordinating Tropical Thinlits Dies.  So this week I’ve been putting some of those on cards....Birthday cards… Continue reading Out of the Pile….Tropical Cards

Birds of a Feather Flock Together

I enjoyed playing with the Flying Home Stamp Set earlier this week and now I'm back again with more birds. The bird's nest with the Momma and her baby birds just seem to make the best note cards....instead of tweeting on a phone or other electronic devices, I think these birds make a cute way… Continue reading Birds of a Feather Flock Together
