Pink birthday on vellum

I'm on a birthday card making kick at the moment (also, I keep typing "birthday" as "borthday", which makes me think of Gru from "Despicable Me" and makes me chuckle every time. This tangent has absolutely nothing to do with this card. Just so you know.) 
I white embossed the "elaborate" background stamp from Penny Black onto watercolour cardstock, then coloured with pink Zigs and water. I added a white embossed sentiment from Avery Elle on a vellum banner, and finished with some sequins (behind which I added some adhesive to stop the vellum banner form blowing in the wind.)

CASe this sketch

I'm playing along today with "CASe this sketch" today - I modified the sketch a little bit, but not heaps!


I used a die from Paper Roses over a panel of Yupo with alcohol inks. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Fusion: Tropical Fish

Welcome to a new challenge at Fusion!


I ignored the photo this time and used the sketch as my inspiration. I stamped and gold embossed some roses from Altenew, and coloured them with Copic markers. I added a white embossed sentiment on a strip of black cardstock.

Clean and Simple at A Blog Named Hero

The latest challenge at A Blog Named Hero is CAS - if you know anything aboout me, you know that I am a CAS girl at heart (for the uninitiated, CAS stands for Clean and Simple), so this challenge is right up my alley!


I used an offcut from a rainbow piece of Yupo with alcohol inks, and added a stamped sentiment from the Smile Stamp & Cut set from Hero Arts. I finished with a scattering of sequins.

Pink alcohol pearls

Alcohol pearls. Love em.


I made a panel of alcohol pearls on yupo, then added a negative die cut sentiment from Simon Says Stamp over the top, with a stamp from the matching set. Sequins finished the card.

Glittery hello

This card looks odd when photographed straight on, but in person, the "hello" stands out really well against the glittery heart.


I used the Damask background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, stamped in Versamark and embossed with "Emerald City" embossing glitter from WOW. I then cut it with a heart die from Pink and Main (and embossed the larger heart on the card base, too), then added a die cut Hello also from Pink and Main, and a white embossed "amazing friend" (I cannot remember where that stamp came from, and I actually made this card months ago - if anyone recognises it, please let me know!)


I will be sharing this card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is "No Designer Paper"

Stamp Happy day 3 card 2


One more card to share for Day 3 of Stamp Happy over at Online Card Classes.




I combined a stamping technique demonstrated by Jennifer McGuire with an ink blending technique demonstrated by Jessica Frost Ballas. I used a background stamp from Hero Arts along with a stamp and sentiment from My Favorite Things.

Rainbow cloud

I've seen a few rainbow cloud cards in blogland - I love the look!


I used the Mini Cloud Edges stencil from MFT to create the cloud panel using Distress Oxide inks, and added a floating elephant from Mama Elephant. The sentiment is a very old one from Stampin' Up.

Online card class day 3

Day three of the latest Online Card Class, Stamp Happy, is all about Hero Arts Background stamps. I have HEAPS!! I chose this slightly older one called "Highline Ironwork" to try a version of the technique demonstrated by Shari Carroll in the class.


I don't have distress sprays or any liquid watercolours, so I used Zig markers and water to create this rainbow waterfall effect. The sentiment is a set of 2 dies from Create a Smile, and a stamp from Birch Press.

Rainbow dahlia corner frame

I have one more card to share with you for the Simon Says Stamp "Blossoms and Butterflies" release!


I added the die cut panel onto a piece of vellum and stamped the sentiment from the "beautiful Flowers" stamp set. I then adhered this over a panel of yupo with a rainbow of alcohol inks.
