It's really starting to feel like spring here the flowers are blooming, the birds are back and the squirrel are playing.

So I thought I would show a ST. Patrick's Day card.

I started by stamping the Tall Shamrocks and coloring with Zig Clean Color markers. Then I stamped the Four Leaf Clover  and the One Line St. Pat's Day Greeting these were also colored with the Zig's. For the background I used the Zigs then die cut but didn't remove all the little pieces.

The lay out is from Splitcoast Card sketch.

Have a wonderful day,

Hi all, with Valentines Day right around the corner I thought I would make one last Valentine.

I made a shaker card by starting with the background and stamping the Hugs 4 in 1 wording stamping and different shades of green ink. Then I heat embossed the Love is Patient Greeting. with white embossing powder. The green love is a Tim Holtz die. I stamped and did the no line coloring on the Medium Daisy Bloom with Zig Clean Color pens. 

Have a wonderful day,

A Rose By Any Other Name

Hi all, I have been wanting to try the no line coloring for a long time. So this week when I saw that the challenge over on the Power Poppy Blog was for no line coloring, I decided to give it a try.

I decided to go old school on my stamp and us this PSX stamp.

After watching a lot of You Tube videos I felt ready to give it a try. I started by stamping with Mementos cantalope I felt like the yellow would go well with the red and green colors of the rose. To color the image I used Zig Clear Color fMarkers #022 carmine red and #041 lt. green and a water brush.

After so many week of not wanting to stamp this technique as given me a push in the right direction. The word stamp in the background is from DRS designs Script Font Background  

I am going to inter this card in the Power Poppy Challenge.

Have a wonderful day,

Hello everyone, I can't believe it is all ready February with Valentines Day right around the corner.

I started by stamping the the Heart Steam Rose on watercolor paper with Versa Mark Ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder. I used Zig Clear Color Markers to color the image. A oval die was used to cut out a frame in the red card stock and another oval frame was mounted over the top.  I stamped the Amazing Valentine's Day and cut it apart. a few sequins were added to add a little sparkle.

  On the inside I stamped the Loved You Yesterday Greeting this was layered onto red card stock.

Have a Wonderful day,

Winter Delights

Hi all, i'm ready for some cold and snow. I am so done with this warm winter and these crazy storms I pray for all the people that lost there homes in the south.

As I was thinking of snow I made this winter card.

I started by stamping the Winter Wonder Words Background on white card stock with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. On a separate piece of card stock I used a edge die to cut the hill then I stamped the Simple Snowman  and colored him with Copic markers I covered him with a mask and stamped the Snow Background with the Peacock Feather Ink. Along the top edge I used glitter glue to add a frosty touch. These were mounted on brown card stock then a white card.

On the inside I stamped the Snowy Days Frosty Night in Coco Ink then stamped the Snow background over the top.

On the back I added the Snowman Especially for you and a strip with the snow background.

Have a wonderful day,

Amazing Love

On this rainy Sunday I wanted to share with you my Amazing Love Puzzle card. This is such a fun stamp that could be used in so may different way's it would be great for kids Valentines. For my card I was experimenting with different mediums.

I started by stamping with Versa Mark and embossing with gold embossing powder the                           Amazing Love Puzzle 
I add a little color with Zig clean Color pen in a few random places. I used the Versa Mark pad along the edges and glitter embossing powder. The frame was covered with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. This was layered on to another sheet with the glitter embossing powder along the edge . On the card I used Tearific Tape and Nuvo Gilding Flakes.
I was happy with the way my card experiment turned out it's a little different for a Valentine but it very sparkly. You just never know were a experiment will take you.

Have a wonderful day,

Loved you always

Hi all what a beautiful weekend we are having here in north Georgia last Sunday it was 11 degrees a week later it's 70 degrees and beautiful.

I thought I would get started on my Valentines it will be here before we know it. 

After die cutting the white card stock I stamped the Loved You Yesterday, with Memento Love Letter Red. I think this is a beautiful greeting. With black ink I stamped the Small Hanging Hearts colored them with Copic I added a white highlight then covered them with my Sparkle Pen. I die cut the scalloped edge then used my sparkle pen and foam tape to attach. A white bow finished my card.

Hope you have a lovely weekend,
