Class of 2021


MMTPT662 - Something Green on your side of the fence

For me that would be my sweet boy graduating this year. It has been a tough year for the senior class but I am going to do my part to let the know how much they mean to me.

This card will not be exchanged as it already has a home for a 2021 graduate.

It was all done with die cuts and a sticker and embossing.

Happy Easter


This little CHICK IN NEST - 645F oh my goodness how cute! I stamped the image on a white card stock and colored him with copics.

I then embossed a wood emboss folder on brown card stock and then rubbed black ink on it to bring out some of the embossing. I cut out the opening and popped the brown on dimensionals.

Then the ONE LINE HAPPY EASTER - 665B was stamped, cut and added to kraft card stock and I created the sign finishing off with twine and Nuvo Drops.

Saturday, March 27, 2021



This sentiment HOPE IS THE GREATEST GIFT EASTER GREETING - 638F is just beautiful and so perfect for this time.

I paired the sentiment with the FLOWERING BIRD BRANCH - 616L. I stamped the image and colored it with copics. I then used just part of the sentiment on the front of the card.

The base layer is an emboss folder.

On the inside....

I stamped the FLOWERING BIRD BRANCH - 616L again and then added the finishing touch of the sentiment.
