Painting by Harry Anderson Mary Magdalene stood weeping outside Jesus' tomb. She stooped to look inside and saw two angels, who asked her why she wept. Mary said she did not know where Jesus' body had been taken. As she turned back, Mary noticed someone standing there. It was Jesus, but she did not recognize Him until He spoke her name. The Savior explained that He had not yet ascended to His Father in Heaven... Continue reading

I'm calling these Wonderful Mother's Boxes only because of the sentiment I've rubber stamped on the lid. Really, this box is unique because the lid is actually the drawer of the Matchbox! I just flipped the drawer to the top and designed a box to go underneath it! The boxes can be as tall as you need them to be and the "Matchbox" lid will just finish it beautifully. MUKIBUG TIPS: I used the Sending... Continue reading

This is our wonderful Simply Adorned™ 1" Square Charm I jazzed up a little bit! Our EXCLUSIVE Stampin' Up! Simply Adorned™ Jewelry is fabulous! I love how the charms pop all the way open, to allow for easy access. The glass on the front is beveled to allow for dimensional designs. The coolest thing about this 1" Charm, it has glass on the front and back (only the front glass is beveled). Can you believe... Continue reading

Yes, it happens more often than you probably realize. I've got to be honest with you all. I do not like this card. I had this idea in my head and then it somehow evolved into this . . . This card is for the Paper Pals Arts Color Challenge #33 (Garden Green™, Certainly Celery™ and Kraft). There were other ways I would rather have worked out this card- but I just ran out of...

I am CRAZY about our Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper™ (see below) and you can see why with this simple "celebrate" card. Mukibug Tips: The clear button on the top was created easily by using the 3/4" Circle Punch™ on the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper™. I used the Paper Piercing Tool™ to poke the holes in the button. The Circle Circus™ rubber stamp set was perfect for the stamped design behind the buttons. The only rubber... Continue reading

Just a little splash of color with these five bright butterflies! This is another one of those BIG SHOT cards! It's only 4-1/4" X 4-1/4" but it's loaded with lots of action. This is the first chance I've had to use my *new* Stampin' Up! Lattice Bigz Die™. I love it! Every time I look at it I see something different. Sometimes it's congruent circles, another time it's four petal flowers, then there are times... Continue reading

A little something cozy and soft for when you're not feeling well. "I hope you feel better soon", is the sentiment shared on the inside of the card. The softness of the crinkled paper looks and feels like flannel. The finishing touch is the beautiful 5/8" SATIN RIBBON tied in front. Mukibug Tips: After rubber stamping the VERY VANILLA cardstock with two rubber stamps from the KIND & CARING THOUGHTS rubber stamp set; I rounded... Continue reading

Hand making a personalized rubber stamped card is a sweet gesture and sentiment in a difficult time. As I create a card for these occasions, I am thinking of the individual who will receive the card. I am adding embellishments that will help to cheer up a day. It's a way I can share the love and care I have for them. Mukibug Tips: I stamped my "thought" sentiment first, using the WHIMSICAL WORDS rubber... Continue reading

My little birdhouse actually lifts off the fence to reveal a hidden treat in the picket fence... Continue reading

If at first you DO succeed, try not to look ASTONISHED! Just roll with the luck and take it like it's an every day occurrence.
