Power of Wine with Tilda-- Video

Hello again,

I'm back with another video tutorial.  I'm coloring up one of my favorite stamps.  I discovered Tilda about 10 years ago.  One of the reasons I loved these images is she is great for copic practice.  I know she is not everyone's favorite, but if you want to see how I made the card I have a video for you.

Here is the link to the video.  Be sure you are on youtube or the blog to watch.  It will not play in email.

Kiss Me I'm Irish

Hey friends,

Quick warning before you scroll down.  This card not for everyone.  Please proceed with care. 

St. Patrick's Day cards can be tough to create.  There are not a lot of stamps for this holiday.   There are even fewer stamps that are funny.   I saw this guy and he made me laugh.  What do you think?  Did he make you chuckle?

Tag You're it

Hello all,

I love the Turnabout stamps by Concord and 9th.   They are a little tricky to use, but I love the end result.  I paired this background with an old Stampin' Up stamp.  I thought the style of stamps went well together.  What do you think?

Background is created with Concord and 9th's turnabout.  If you are curious about how they work,  I made a video using the Fall turnabout.  You can see it here.

Pink: R85, R83, 81
