Father's Day Theme

Hello Friends!    

When i was making this postcard, i needed some design software, i found everything on


I was thinking about bird watchers. There are many male bird watchers as well as female bird watchers. I am one of those demonstrators who don't follow instructions according to the packaging and I love to play with papers and elements by going outside the box and adding additional details. Here is one for the male. You see, you can take one element and add different tones of colors.

I color the eggs with Night of Navy Stampin' Blends and the leaves with Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends. Used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits, and die cut the centre. Then used the next size up Rectangle Stitched Framelits in Blueberry Bushell cs.

Trim the note card to 2-7/8" x 4-1/4". Then cut (1) 3" x 4-3/8" Blueberry Bushell cs and adhere the focal point to the mat cs. Then with the hexagon die cut element that was provided in the kit, cut the end off and stamp LOVE in Blueberry Bushel ink. 

The base card is cut at 7-1/8" x 5", scored at 3-1/2" in crumb cake cs and then adhere the panel with dimensionals. I kept the same size as the other note cards so that I can use the envelopes.

Again, thanks for stopping by. Be sure to add a comment for a chance to win the "Lots of Happy Card Kit". Winner will be announced on June 22.

Bird Ballad Thank You!

Hello Friends!    

Simple and effective with just stamp, paper and ink. 

I have been really busy with my 3 companies and came up with this design last night. The Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper is all you need. Cut out the image and add dimensionals.

I used the Mosaic Mood Designer Paper for the accent.

Mother's Day

Hello Friends!    

It has been a long time since I blogged, and I am very sorry. Blogging is not one of my forte as it takes so long. But if you do have FB, come and join me here. 

The floating die cuts/stamps are very hot in the cardmaking and thought I would give it a try.

This is super fun and really easy! I followed the direction of Jennifer Mcquire but I didn't have any of the press'n seal so I created my own with a twist.

I started off with a sheet of designer paper or you can stamp your own. You can take a sheet of designer series paper, and this is my favorite as each demonstrator received a package of the Mosaic Designer Series Paper. This stack is gorgeous.


I used the rose mosaic sheet, and fussy cut each print out.

Best Catch

No comments
Hello Friends!    

When I first saw this set at onStage, I knew that I need to have this. We have fishermen in our household and the stamp set is called BEST CATCH. It comes with coordinating dies. This is a Distinktive Ink set. When you stamp the image on white cs, it creates a vision of 3D making the images easier to color and the image pops out at you.

This is not for a simple stamper but more for an avid stamper because of how the salmon pops out of the card.

When you open the card, the salmon looks like it is jumping out of the water.

As we bring in the New Year 2019, my goal is to use up all the papers I have on hand and change the paper from being feminine to masculine. For the front I used the How Sweet It is Designer Series Paper.
