Welcome back friends! I've got a CAS card to share with you today for the MFT Release Rewind! One of my favorite tricks is to turn my stamp upside down and use the base to stamp a solid shadow for the image. This really works with images that are symmetrical... like most in Geometric Greenery! Sometime I just want to add color but don't want to color... crazy huh. Anyhow, this trick is and oldie but goodie for sure! That's... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! I've got a really fun MFT September Release Countdown Sneak Peek card to share with you today using the new Split Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics and my new Geometric leaves stamp set and dies. Now... I used a trick that I saw another designer use (I wish could remember who so I could give them proper credit) that makes transferring the negative space elements of a die a snap... using Glad Press and Seal plastic wrap. Well... that's... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! Today I get to share with you a collaborative card using my MFT Celebrate with Cake stamp set and Chibi lights! These fun lights sure pack a punch! With my card I trimmed out the inside of my bitty candles and used a rounded toothpick to smooth out the edges of the cut. I placed a yellow chibi light behind the focal panel to get a bigger impact. White would work but the yellow really stood out.... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! I've got one quick Make Yourself at Home card to share before you head off to snag your new MFT goodies. It's so fun to create using my new set. I love being able to "decorate"! Each chair is paper pieced using pattern paper and shaded with a light gray Copic marker. I didn't want the white edge around the pillows and blanket so they were hand trimmed and adhered directly. I posted this photo yesterday but... Continue reading

I wanted something flat that I could send easily in the mail so I created a custom patterned paper. I colored all the images with Copic Markers. It was really therapeutic sitting here coloring these darling images.... Continue reading
