In joyous celebration of Rudolph …

In joyous celebration of Rudolph ….

Congrats Grad!


It’s been awhile since I have created a blog post because I have been down with vertigo for the last 6 weeks. I have a graduate that is needing a card and I was able to get up and create this card using my paper pumpkin package from stampin up.

I have only been doing paper pumpkin for the last 3 or 4 months and one of the packages had congratulations and thank you cards in it. As I was laying in bed I was thinking I could create a quick graduation card using the congrats card kit.  With this card I decided to do it my way and not use the instruction sheet.

I wanted to make a card that was more of a masculine card instead of a feminine card. Instead of adding the gold punch outs provided I decided to wrap some twine around the card instead. I decided that I wanted to add just a little bit of something more so I used some and silver washi tape that went with it perfectly. I also decided that I wanted to use one of the other paper pumpkin stamps that I  got in the very first stamp kit. I love this stamp kit and has the gorgeous grunge stamp set look to it. I also used the basic grey stamp ink spot that came with the very first package and I really like the way it turned out.

I’m not sure how long it’s going to be before I can start working on my cards but it was fun creating this card today.  Chat with you later.

If you loved the Endless Wished wintery photopolymer stamp set, then you will love this set.  It is the same mix of sentiments you can combine and cute curly writing.  You will love to pair the words to create the perfect birthday card.  It comes in the awesome, perfectly clear photopolymer which is easy to stamp with.  As always, it’s only $13.95 and has 27 stamps.  That’s a ton!

Charming in blue


I love the colors that was used for this card, just in time for spring.

Charming in blue Heather Telford

I made this card quite a while ago so I am not able to tell you which watercolour pencils I used but I can outline my process for you. I inked the “Charming” stamp using memento markers which make it easy to ink the flowers, leaves and stems in different colours. I used a blue, a green and a yellow watercolour pencil to colour in the leaves and flowers blending afterward with a waterbrush . I ran the blue pencil around the perimeter of the panel and blended the colour in to create a spft edge. I also picked up colour from a pale blue pencil to fill in the background. Some of the pale blue blended with the  the stamped ink which created little water colour bleeds that I quite like. I sponged a bit of yellow ink in the top corner to suggest sunlight and added the sentiment…

Lexi’s Fun Night

I am still down with vertigo but what is new. Anyway I found that my granddaughter Alexcya enjoyed making some cute goodie boxes and invitations for a party.  She wanted to get together with her dance class to get to know them a little better.  

I gave her a little advice and helped her print the invitations, and some bookmarks that will go onto the invitations and envelopes that slides. Then after she decided what she wanted to do all I had to do was show her where my goodies where and left her to have fun playing.  We got the box idea from Sam Donald here.

I am so proud of her and happy to know I have someone who likes to create the same things that I enjoy. image-2image-3

I absolutely love this card, the way the colors compliment each other. Love it!

to dream Good Morning All,

Well I did manage to do some crafting over the Easter weekend eventually – although it wasn’t the best weekend – the puppy was poorly and the boiler decided to stop working, so not the most relaxing time :-(

Anyhow, this is what I did, it’s an A5 card which has been layered up with some chocolate brown card and design papers from the Wellington pack from DoCrafts.  The image is another one from Lily of the Valley.  I’ve then added some Adage Tickets by Tim Holtz, which I’ve inked over with vintage photo distress ink, the ribbon is from my stash and the little button has been done with a Sizzix cut and emboss folder, which I think I got from Stampin Up?

As usual, I’ve taken the current Mojo Monday challenge layout and followed that.

I also forgot to show you all, what I did…

Gold So Very Grateful & Free Shipping From Stampin’ Up! Ends Today


I love how pretty Amy’s card is. I love how simple and yet elegant it is.

Originally posted on Stamp With Amy K:

I used a lot of Very Vanilla and a little Gold along with the So Very Grateful stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you today.  My card design was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 216 and The Paper Players #192.

I started by adhering two strips of Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I adhered the panel to a panel of Gold Foil Sheets and to a Very Vanilla card base with SNAIL.

So Very Grateful 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I cut a strip from the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum and I adhered it over a strip of Gold Foil Sheets with SNAIL.  I hid the SNAIL under the wide stripes so that it wouldn’t show on the front.  Then I punched the end with the Hexagon Punch to create the banner look and I adhered the banner to the card front…
