Wish Big

Hello and Welcome,

This is a really fun stamp by Blue Knight.   It was part of their last release.  Dandelions are so much fun.  I tried to teach Ryan to blow them.   It didn't go very well, but we still had fun.  Who knew weeds could be so much fun. 

Copics used:

Green: G46, G43, G40, YG63, YG67
Yellow: Y21, Y15, Y11
Shadows : W5

Winter Fox


This fox is from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I love the colors in this card.  I love the way blue and the orangey brown compliment each other.  To top it off, there is a ton of glitter on the snow.   If it is going to be cold... it should at least sparkle. 😀

Sky: B16, B14, B12
Fox: E19, E18, E97,E95, E93

Hello Beautiful

Hello Beautiful,

I know this stamp by Avery Elle was meant to be for Valentine's day, but I thought it could work for just about anything. Do hearts ever go out of season?  I colored the peacock feathers to look like a rainbow.

Pink Panther


I'm still playing around with stamps from the new Blue Knight Stamps release.  This panther is my favorite stamp in the release.  For the first few I stamped the panther stamp on pattern paper that had a watercolor feel to it.  These were really easy, fast, and stunning cards to make.  I love silhouette stamps! 

This background was created using the copic airbrush system.  I was trying to create a sunrise scene.

Faux watercolor

Hello friends,

I had so much fun making this card.  I used Altenew inks and their Hyacinth stamp to create this card.  I sprayed the stamps with water after inking them.  It helps create a watercolor feel without having any watercolor skill.  My favorite kind of card.

Llama wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day

Hello friends,

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner.  I wanted to share this guy before it was too late.  I love this cutie.   Do you do anything to celebrate St. Patrick's Day?  My husband is always determined to find a place to eat corned beef and cabbage.  Surprisingly, not too many restaurants offer it.   Who knows... he might get lucky this year.

Over the Rainbow

Hello friends.

I made an easel card to share today.   If you have never made one before they are really easy way to add a wow factor to a card.   For this card I modified the design a little to allow the rainbow to stand up.  However, the card still lays flat and mails with a regular stamp. 

The little hedgehog is from Whipper Snapper.

Love one Otter


I love how easy (and cute) this card was to create.  I used the picture book die from SSS.   I die cut it out of a few colors cardstock. I did a little sponging and reassembled him.  I love how he can hold a little piece of candy.   It just makes the card sweeter.
