Not much can be simpler than Stamps, Ink and Paper to make a card.  To be more specific - One stamp, one color ink and one basic color of cardstock.

Simple Triangle Cards

I was searching around yesterday afternoon looking for a simple card design that I could do for my Facebook Live that I do every Tuesday.  Usually I share a card that I make with my stamping friends on Sunday, but I took Sunday off as it was Easter Sunday.....so I didn’t have anything planned in… Continue reading Simple Triangle Cards

Nothings Better Than…..

So...how would you fill in the blank?  The stamp set I used to for today’s card is called Nothings Better Than and the stamps in the set give you four choices for an answer....Cookies, Chocolate (my choice), Cocktails and Coffee.  Personally, I think I would have added Crafting in there somewhere.  I spent a few… Continue reading Nothings Better Than…..

Fine Art Floral Fun Fold

This is actually a re-make of a card that I made in 2019 when I was visiting my daughter in Seoul, South Korea.  I had packed a few stamping supplies so I could stamp on the long 17 hour flight, I didn’t end up doing that....those seat trays are tiny!  But I did make quite… Continue reading Fine Art Floral Fun Fold
