100% stamped


I am so into shaker cards now.  Just love them, the little sequins and mini beads give such sparkle to a card.

I made this card for this month's challenge at Virginia's View.  The challenge is to make a card that is 100% stamped.  I stamped my background with yellow ink, added a few splotches of orange then sprayed with a little H2O to blend the flowers a bit.  I then stamped the little butterflies, color with watercolor pencils and added a touch of green.


Glad you're here, hope you're enjoying your Summer :)

Sailboats in the wind...


The little sailboats stamp is from Lockhart stamps, which is now Pink Ink Stamp Company.  If you're not familiar take a peek, they have such nice stamps.

I made this card for the challenge over at the City Crafter Challenge blog.  Stop by and see all of the nice cards made for this challenge.


Happy you stopped by today and a beautiful day it is here in the foothills!

Up In The Air....


I made this card for the challenge over at The Male Room challenge blog.  The challenge is: Up in the air (no birds).  This cute airplane is from Lawn Fawn, so are the clouds.  Both sentiments are Technique Tuesday.  I enjoy making these shaker cards, must make a few more.


Thanks for stopping by today.  Now spread your wings and FLY!!

Birthday Flowers


I apologize for the photo, too late in the evening I guess.  Anyway, I made this card for the challenge at Less Is More this week.  Here is the sketch we were given for inspiration:

Bright Butterfly


This pretty butterfly is from a Hero Arts stamp and die set I purchased some time ago and the flowers are from a Hero Arts background stamp I recently won in a blog hop.

I put this happy card together for this week's challenge at the Fusion challenge blog. I chose to combine the photo and the sketch for my card, here's the Fusion inspiration:

Glad you're here, have a happy day!!

Ahoy Matey!


Summertime - flowers, sunshine, pools, hikes, water gun attacks, BBQ's and the list goes on.  A big Summertime thought in my head is the OCEAN!!  I grew up by the ocean and although I live in the mountains now, the ocean is always a thought that's not too far away.

This week's challenge at the Casology blog is Nautical.  Ships and ocean come to mind don't they?  I recently added this "unnamed" anchor to my stamp collection ($1.00 bin at Michael s) and came up with this card for the challenge.  Isn't this anchor somethin', I like it so much.  Added some twine, some stars and a hand-written sentiment and viola another card is born :)


Glad you're visiting today, hope you're enjoying your Summer so far :)
