Happy Friday! On this card we stamped the cake first and then put a mask overlay on the cake to stamp the presents. Images colored with alcohol ink markers. White paper is dull gloss, links below. Have a good weekend!
Good morning and happy new year! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. 🥳
The two cards today show different ways to color the EE53 skinny candles. One of our favorites is a gradient and the other is to add stripes/dots. With both, we start with the lightest color marker and then add the darker color. White paper is dull gloss. The pink striped background paper is from a paper pack. The green striped background we created using the HH28 dots and lines border stamp.
Happy Wednesday! Does anyone make bib cards? If not, there is a die cut for it! It is a fun way to mix up layouts. Here we have a snowy Christmas card in dark blue. Was thinking of adding a red ribbon but didn’t have the right color nearby. Might add it later and then blog it again with another bib card!
Hello! We have been having trouble with our indexing ink so I gave up making stamps today and decided to make cards instead.
Karissa bought a HUGE stack of paper at JoAnne’s this weekend and I scored some of this background paper. I wish I would have snagged more!

We were up bright and early this morning to start the trek to Orlando, FL. We plan to get to Clarksville TN if all goes well. Kevin forgot his coffee this morning so it’s not starting out so good. We don’t make extra stops along the way so he has four hours before we stop and he can get coffee 😳

KB here, blogging for Beth since they are driving back to Wisconsin this afternoon. Earlier, the question of how I keep my mat so clean came up and it is simply baby wipes (the mat was fairly new too which helps). I think I bought this little pack for $1 at Target a couple months ago. Speaking of cleaning, I was getting frustrated with my unmounted stamps and have been trying to figure out a good way to organize them. I have a binder, a bucket, and a rolodex. I’m still not sure which works best but today at Target, in the dollar section near the entrance, I found some containers which might work nice.
This is what my bucket looked like before.
As you can imagine, it is very difficult to find the one I want. Also, they get stuck together, bent, damaged, etc. It would be easier to leave them scattered all across the desk but that looks messy and the cat enjoys chewing on them.
This is kind of how it looks now.
The dividers help keep them separated. Yet, I can still keep all the cube words and the reverse sets together. The larger stamps don’t fit in any of the containers but I think they will work better in the binder anyway. If anyone has a good suggestion or something that works for them, we are all ears (or eyes since we will probably be reading your responses)! Happy Thursday!
a sweet and easy Valentine’s Day card on this wacky wednesday! We have some brand new stamps including this one: like you a watt! We needed some more stamps to go with our light bulb because it is one of our favorites.
Stamps Used: D301 like you watt; C213 Heart Light bulb; D209 Happy Valentine’s Day.
We are so grateful for everything in life! I was groaning about all the stamps we were making and whining a little 😦 and Kevin said what if no one liked your stamps and you had no stamps to make? What a perspective! So happy for all my work! 🙂
Stamps Used: E247 KB’s Tom Turkey, Lg; F214 Every Thought Thanksgiving; DD49 So Grateful Fun Cube; Lines & Dots
Here was my commute to work this morning! So Beautiful!
and yes I was in the shop before Kevin so my path was not shoveled! Otherwise he always shovels a path for me 🙂
Wishing everyone a great day today!
We are here in Sharonville, OH getting ready for Stampaway. We had an awesome group in my class yesterday. We are going to go and finish setting up this morning and then the show starts this evening. It was really nice to get mostly set up yesterday before my class and now just some finishing touches to do in the booth.
Have a great weekend!
