Good Morning ! We seem to be always behind so I always need a lot of belated wishes. I dropped the card and bent the corner – so bummed. Hopefully it is hard to see in the pictures.

Hello! This little flower bouquet has won our hearts. It is a fantastic stamp! The bouquet was stamped on dull glossy with memento ink; colored with copies, and re stamped with Versafine ! Love the technique.

Happy Wednesday! Aren’t these polka dots fun?! I’m loving these colors! This is a really quick card especially if you have these potted aloe already stamped and cut out. They were even colored and all I had to do was find matching paper. Get the right words, assemble and done. Links to see on website are below!
Happy Tuesday! Sending kind words, peace and care.
For this card, the aloe was stamped first on a scrap of dull gloss white paper to set aside to allow time to dry. Then the square was cut out on a dull gloss swatch (4” x 5.25”). Stamped the words next to allow time to dry before assembling. Once the potted aloe is dry enough, it can be cut out and colored with alcohol ink markers. All that’s left is to glue/tape swatch onto cardstock, then put 3D pop up on aloe and attach in window. Quick and easy! The cut out square was saved for another card which will hopefully get finished and posted later this week.
Taking one day at a time!
Can’t decide if I like this card more with the pink stripe or without! So including both and you can decide. 😅
Paper is dull gloss with alcoholic ink splattered on top portion leaving a section on the bottom for the words.
A person can never have enough birthday cards! The weather is starting to warm up here in The Midwest and we are enjoying it.
Such a simple straight forward card. I have found myself making cards that are flat so they are easier to mail!

Good Evening. Time sure fly’s when you are busy! Where does the time go?? We just seem to be so busy that the day gets away from us. Needed a sympathy card recently and had this pattern paper and thought it would make a quick card. It was super fast and easy with just black ink. Loved the matching paper with squares.

Good Morning! For this card, we stamped the solid heart in four different colors and stamped the stitched heart on top with the same colors. Paper is dull glossy – link is here: https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/dull-glossy-paper. Although, in brighter light, we realized the ink is a little more orange than the paper. Don’t look too closely! 😆

Here we used the mini coffee cup and the small coffee beans to fill a 4×5.25” swatch of dull glossy paper (click on link to see the paper on website). This was a fun way to create a background but did take a little while coloring all the little images. Click on the links below to see the stamps on our website.

A double blog day today! Cute adorable bee card for a Valentine.
I have had both covid vaccines (since a front line health care worker) and many of our patients have been getting them so maybe we are on our way to a new normal. MayBEE it will be a good year ahead!
Good Morning and happy Friday! Here is a quick card with the “wishing you” stamped on the front and the rest on the inside. Also, the flag stamp has three flags but we only used the largest one. White paper is dull glossy. Click on links below to see the stamps on our website.
We are hoping to post another card later today with some new images, check back tonight!
Only a few days left until Valentine’s day! Has everyone sent their cards already? This card can really be for any time you want to let someone know you are missing them but we chose the pink just for Valentine’s.

I love all things bees! I’m loving our new stamps with all the bee sayings. So much fun. I recently put up a bee house in the yard and they are just so cute.
I made a bunch of extra tops for these cards depending on if I want the card from Kevin and I or just from me.
So I originally made the stamps with we but then wanted one with an I only. So the set will come with both a we and an I so you can change it up. Easy to do with a MISTI.

Good Morning! A sympathy card for today. Used a cutting die in the middle of a 3.75″x5″ swatch and layered on a white swatch (4″x5.25″). Stamped the flower and butterfly on dull glossy swatch. Colored with copic markers.

Happy Monday! Here we used the triple flag across the top versus on the paper it was designed to go with. Wanted to show it can be used in multiple ways!

Below is what we used to create the splatter background. Put a few drops on a paint brush and tap glass container with brush over the paper. We use another piece of scrap paper to cover the container to prevent splatter on the surrounding area.
There is always a need for birthday cards! I love these colors. I love the new updated birthday wishes stamps. Sometime you just need a refresh on your ordinary stamps!

Yippee! It’s the weekend! We have lots of snow and bitter cold temperatures. I should get lots of stamping done.
Good Afternoon! This card is one of my favorite cards with our new stamps. It seems like I need these kind of cards often. I also got the words paper on crooked 🙄😬 by the time I noticed it was too late. Handmade!! I put nothing on the inside so there is room to write but I love The Paper Cut zig zags that doesn’t leave it too blank.

Happy Monday and first day of February! We have been experimenting with alcohol inks again. For this one we used a paper heart that we cut out and splattered alcohol ink over, creating this empty space that we stamped the phrase in. Then added the coffee cup with a pop up and the ribbon.
Happy Friday! We have a retirement bib card this afternoon. This one is really easy to put together. We stamped the dotted circle first, then punched it out with a 1-3/4” circle punch, then stamped the coffee cup, and colored the cup with copic markers. For the overlay, we stamped and colored the coffee beans across the bottom and stamped the retirement saying above. Then glued the circle and overlay on the bib card and added ribbon. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
Hello! We have another card today. The inspiration for this one came from Pinterest and now I can’t find the card but it had diagonal lines across with tiny hearts at each intersection. When I saw it, I thought of this Solid Heart and how I could adapt it. Still want to work with other variations but like how this one turned out.
Sometimes a sympathy card is needed unexpectedly. This one came together very quickly. We used dull glossy paper again so did allow for time to dry before coloring the flowers but still didn’t take long. The grass under the flower was created with a marker. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!
Almost halfway through the week! Today we have a quick and easy card with the birthday candles. We stamped the birthday phrase first on a 3.75”x5” swatch of dull gloss paper to allow time to dry. Then stamped the blue square on a scrap piece large enough, then cut it out with scissors, and then stamped the candles. Colored the candles after letting it dry for a little. Since we used dull Gloss paper, it needs a little extra time. Then we glued the paper swatches on the card, added pop up dots to square before putting above the birthday phrase. Added ribbon and that’s it!
Good morning and happy Friday! Here we used the hollyhock to decorate the coffee cup. We cut the flower and leaf out with scissors. The coffee cup has cutting dies and link is below. Have a wonderful weekend!
Good morning! Do you ever get card stock that is just hard for you to work with? This color came in a pack and I’ve struggled with it for months now but I think it came together in this card! Is it working?! 😆
