Today is a new day!

  • Stamp – Art Gone Wild / Catherine Scanlon Designs – Say It
  • Washi tape -Queen & Company
  • Patterned cardstock – BoBunny
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Embossing powder – Stampendous – Detail White

I really like the strong lines in this card design and really had fun interpreting the sketch. The sketch is the current sketch at the Case This Sketch site. I created the bold lines with washi tape using the dotted cardstock as a base. I then heat embossed the sentiment so that it would match the black and white of many of the elements. Very simple, but I was pleased with the outcome. Thanks for visiting today.

This card is another for the military drive my friend is doing. I colored the happy little fox with Copic markers and cut it out with the scalloped die. I then pulled out an old favorite patterned paper collection from long ago and created a design with it. Thanks for stopping by.

I’m still embracing creating cards that are different from the Christmas cards that I concentrated on during the last month or two. It is fun to pull out some different supplies! For this I pulled some scraps together and used some pretty dies in my stash to create a simple card. This will be added to the box I’m putting together with cardmaking friends to send to a military unit (for the soldiers to send home to their friends and families). Thanks for stopping by.

By the way, my new friend pictured to the right of my card was a Christmas gift. Is he cute or what?! He is such a good model that he may appear in more upcoming photos! Thanks, Rene’!

Birthday Floral Silhouette

  • Stamps –
    • Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection – Wildflowers
    • Technique Tuesday – Ranunculus
  • Watercolors – Sakura Koi
  • Cardstock
  • Sequins

This is a clean and simple card with a bright palette–a fresh look after holiday cards! I created the background using watercolors and blending them vertically. Once it was dry, I stamped the floral silhouette and sentiment onto the watercolored panel and added sequins for some visual interest. I layered the panel onto the subtle patterned paper and a matching card base. Very simple! Thanks for visiting.

Happy New Year! I created this card for a challenge I was hosting today for an online cardmaking group. It was my first card of 2019. It had been a while since I created a card using patterned papers, especially one that wasn’t for the holidays! So it was fun to put this together. I colored the cute penguin image with Copic markers and layered the patterned papers. Very simple, but bright and cheery! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful 2019.
