Happy Birthday Owl


Hi my crafty friends!  This is a quick and easy birthday card I made for my niece whoo loves owls!  I was short on time so I used a pre-colored digital image.  It's hard to tell in the photo but I used my happy birthday embossing folder on the yellow cardstock.



Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Tall Oaks by Verve Stamps


Hi my crafty friends! We celebrated thanksgiving with the family this past weekend and are still eating leftovers. It's been ages since I made the family holiday cards and really enjoyed doing so again this year.


The pumpkins are from the Tall Oats stamp set by Verve Stamps. I colored the pumpkins using copic markers YOO, YR21, YR23, YR27 and the ground G82, G85. The patterned papers are scraps from various fall collections I've used over the years. To embellish the card I added some burlap, green grosgrain ribbon and sequins.

Watercolor Flower


Hi my crafty friends! Today I've a gorgeous floral card to share. I have this stash of textured papers I got eons ago at a craft show and dug them out to use on this card.  The image is embossed using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder then colored in using watercolors.


Over the raspberry card base I layered vellum and purple textured paper. It's hard to tell in the photo but the purple textured paper has raspberry bits in it. To embellish the card I added some white lace and raspberry buttons finished with white thread.
