Udderly Lost

For the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast Stampers I really loved the wonderful layout and bold black ribbon the featured stamper had on her card and created this card with the darling Green Duck die from this months collection.

Frankenstein Boo!

This darling die cut from Green Duck dies is still available. This was created for the MIX and Free 4 All challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. For the Free 4 All we were to add texture. The moon has texture where I sponged on orange, deep yellow and light yellow and then spritzed with water. I love the effect. Then I sponged the chalk and splattered white acrylic paint for the sky and mounted the moon, bat and the darling Frankenstein.


Frankenstein Boo!

White Christmas

This weeks Ways to Use It challenge on Splitcoast Stampers was to use Ribbon. I also wanted to try Kittie's tutorial on creating this darling tree. You can find the link to the tutorial on my card on Splitcoast Stampers.

Hats, Hats, Hats

This is for Teapot Tuesday to use fun hats on our cards. I just adore this darling girl and her pumpkin hat from Green Duck Designs. There are 5 different distress inks that make up the skyline.

Hats, hats, hats

Copic Bleed Technique

This is another fun technique we learned during Fallidays. It is called Copic Bleed where you put a white card stock behind a coloring page and let the color bleed through. I could only find one coloring book in my entire house because I have not gotten on the bandwagon to get the adult coloring books. I love the softness of the second elephant.

Sweet Halloween

This darling image is from Green Duck Dies. I wanted to do a spooky BG and the salted watercolor BG was perfect for her. She worked great for the Fallidays challenge too where we needed to do a salted watercolor BG.


Sweet Halloween

Red and White Christmas

Another card for the Fallidays card drive to do a card based on Christmas candy. I thought of the red and white peppermint candies.

Another great card for Green Duck Designs. The paper was a wonderful addition to this darling little witch. I love that the Little Witches was able to be at the top.

Ornament Garland

This was another wonderful tutorial that came out during Fallidays. I love how these ornaments turned out. This would be great for teachers to have little kids make for parents for Christmas.

Blue Christmas

The theme of this was Blue Christmas. This was so fast adding DP to the bottom and due cutting the bow and finishing with the sentiment and gem.

CAS Birthday


This is another card for the Fallidays challenge. We were to add stars to our birthday cards for a card drive at a children's hospital. This girl with her tall cakes was to fun. Cutting her off the edge of the card and using dimensionals having her walk off the edge to the stars was really fun and I love how it turned out.

Fall Thanks





I love using bits and scraps on my cards. The leaves are all punched out of scarp paper so I can use up more of it before tossing it away. Then smearing some distress inks on my craft mat and dragging the leaves over a few colors I was able to add some yellows, lighter greens, oranges and reds to the leaves for the Fallidays challenge.

Fall Thanks

Patriotic Thank You

This was fun to create. I had to make a patriotic Thank You card for my grandpa as he is a WWII vet and going on the flight to DC soon. I had made him a card similar to this and not published it as I did not want him to see it before he received it. Then for the Fallidays challenge we had to do a patriotic Thank You and I recreated the card adding a bit more stitching to the card.

Patriotic Thank You
