Clean & Simple Sketch #221 – OWH Missing You


  • Stamp – Autumn Leaves “Flower Swirls”
  • Sentiment stamp – from Hero Arts “OWH Right at Home” set
  • Patterned paper – Basic Grey “Lime Rickey” 6 X 6″ paper pad
  • Distress Ink – Ranger “Wild Honey”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I was inspired by sketch #221 at Clean and Simple Stamping for this card. The theme for the Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps this week is Miss You. So I put the two challenges together and made this card. It features the stamped flowers colored with Copic markers. I applied Distress Ink in Wild Honey to the edges of the individual layers. Thanks for visiting!

Iris Fold Christmas Tree


  • Stamp – Stampendous “Old World Greetings”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill and BoBunny
  • Iridescent paper – Creative International Papers
  • Patterned paper (trunk) – Chatterbox “Fine Engraved Paper in Chocolate”
  • Iris fold pattern – Circle of Crafter’s

I wanted to make an iris folded Christmas card this year. I used a tree pattern published at Circle of Crafters and some iridescent papers in greens and blues. Unfortunately I ran out of time and only got one made! I guess I’ll have to make more now for next Christmas. Thanks for visiting!
