Just using up some retired DSP and products to make some Happy New Home cards for my sister in law to give to her clients. I hung onto this punch from several years ago. I don't use it often but... Continue reading

I got an order for some pet sympathy cards...something I've never made before. I didn't have any suitable stamps so I used some retired heart dies and punches. For the bones I used a 1/2" strip of card stock and... Continue reading

I broke out a few stamp sets for this card. The small flowers and stems are from Path of Petals. The large flowers are from the To a Wild Rose stamp set and the sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments... Continue reading

I'm sure you've been seeing cards using the Blossoms in Bloom bundle everywhere. Not surprising. The bundle includes a stamp set, an outline die and a partial outline die so they can be used all together or each of them... Continue reading

Does anyone remember these Holiday Shaker Card Kits? I still had some pieces left over so I tried them with the new Game On stamp set hoping it wouldn't look too Christmassy. I fussy cut some of the dice, glued... Continue reading

It's been a while since I've posted videos. I'm not sure why I stopped but when I did, technology kind of got away on me. With a whole lot of help from my daughter (thanks Kenz) I was able to... Continue reading

I was really looking forward to playing with this stamp set when I first saw it in the new catalogue. Sometimes with stamp sets I like the image but can't think of enough ways to use them but Whiskey Business... Continue reading

This Path of Petals stamp set is unique in the way the stamps fit together. The leaves, flowers and sprigs are all separate stamps that fit together so you can easily stamp each one in a different colour. This stamp... Continue reading

I thought I would finish off Jar of Flowers Week with my new night light. I like putting a little light in my guest washroom when I have friends of over but candles make me nervous and the only outlet... Continue reading

I wanted to make a couple of 3D projects with these cute little Mason Jar Shaker Domes before I run out. I'm not sure where I purchased this shadow box picture frame as I've had it for a while but... Continue reading

I love these cute little mason jars and wondered what one would look like if it was sitting on a table. This is one of those cards that's easier than it looks. The card base is cut 6.5" x 5.5"... Continue reading

To get a little more mileage out of your Jar of Flowers stamp set ink up some of the greenery with a marker to use as a border. For the one-layer samples below I used a couple of post it... Continue reading

I'm kicking off Jar of Flowers Week with planters made from the jar lid stamp. Just stamp the lid in a straight row until you reach the desired height. It also works well stamped in Versamark and embossed. Supplies are... Continue reading

I always enjoy making one of a kind specialty cards like this one. You don't have to remember how you made it because you'll probably never make another. I pull out products, see what works and just keep adding details.... Continue reading

This is one of the cards I made the last time I had a stamp day with my girlfriend prequarentine. It feels like forever ago. We planned another stamp day for tomorrow; outdoors on disinfected tables spaced 6' apart. We're... Continue reading

These are some of my "Pretend" cards. I like having something to work on while I pretend to be interested in whatever show my husband is watching on TV. I stamped the images ahead of time and cut and colored... Continue reading

A fellow demo that I stamp with once called my cards Mailing Nightmares. I like lots of layers with elements hanging over the edge making them difficult to fit into an envelope. I still use dimensionals on almost every card... Continue reading

I have to admit, the images in the Layered with Kindness stamp set are easy to overlook. On the printed page of the catalogue they looked underwhelming but I've been seeing the most beautiful samples made with this stamp set.... Continue reading

Yay! My preorder arrived and I couldn't wait to play. Some of the new products I used on this card were the Jar of Flowers stamp set, Birds and More dies and Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon. Now I'm off to try... Continue reading

This butterfly stamp from the Beautiful Day stamp set has been one of my favorite images to color. It's large, bold and whimsical so anything goes when it comes to colors. I'm a little sad to see it retire but... Continue reading

This is one of those cards I made years ago and keep coming back to. I started out by casing a swap I received at convention with DSP and small flowers but somewhere along the way I switched to tools.... Continue reading

Because of the Coronavirus we've all had to make sacrifices and adjustments in the way we interact with family and friends, especially the elderly. My Mom has been a trooper through all of this. She grew up in a large... Continue reading

I like this DSP. For some reason it reminds me of the Flintstones but since I'm on a mission to use some of the supplies I've been hoarding I decided to cut it up for some clean and simple birthday... Continue reading
