Happy birthday with alcohol inks – March 24, 2020

alcohol ink, Birthday

For this card, the alcohol inks had some funky color combinations that came by accident. Maybe it is just me, but I like them! Wanted to add some more interest with the inside insert so added the candles and the wish big stamped on a kraft sticker.

Hope everyone is doing well! Glad for technology to stay in touch with loved ones. Anyone getting creative with the food in their pantry? Recipe ideas welcome!

Happy St. Patrick’s day! Sadly, we do not have a patty day card.😆 It snuck up on us! Instead, we have a birthday card to celebrate Blake’s (nephew) birthday! Hope everyone is doing well in these crazy times we live in.

Celebrating you! – February 28, 2020

Birthday

This was a fun card to make and a bit of an experiment. For the background, I used dull gloss paper and rubbed the edges with a light blue ink pad, then stamped rows and columns of the bitty block across the paper. Followed with the circle in green. Thought it was still missing something, so added the orange lines. Used Copic markers to color the cupcake. My constant struggle with the dull gloss is not allowing enough time to dry. Might need to take a heat gun to it! A lot of birthdays are coming up so time to get stamping 🤪, happy Friday! 🎉

Birthday, Owls

Cards for men always seem to be a challenge. This one is quick and easy though. Plaid paper found in a pack from Michaels (I believe.. can’t quite remember where I bought it) and stamps are in a set (CS107). We have a busy day ahead so keeping it short, happy Thursday!

Stamps: CS107, CS105

Good Morning! We are getting rain today! I like a little rain so I don’t have to water my flowers. I’m a fair weather gardener. I don’t really enjoy it but I like how it looks 😊

Easy 50th birthday card today!

Good grief!?! How is it July 1st!? Time is flying. We are happy to have summer weather finally. Kevin has been working on the trailer changing all the springs and so I’ve been busy making stamps. We have a full class for Stampaway so they asked me to add more spots so I’m also busy getting all that ready. 😊 I guess being busy keeps me out of trouble!

Good Afternoon!  Well, I have most of the orders done (not all but getting there!) and the dirty clothes are just about done but the house really needs some cleaning 🙂  I really need to take the time in the morning to get it clean…it’s driving me crazy.

Took the time to use the new candles stamp.  It is so versatile !  This is what it looks like…it is a mirror image stamp:
