What's Brewing?


Well as you can see, I just got my new set of Clearly Gina K stamps “Wicked”.  I used my Sakura Stardust pen, yellow stickles and shiny bling from many sources.  Lots of layering and pop dots and tried my hand at faux stitching, on the focal image.

Thinking of You


I’ve had my Sister's-in-law (all 3 of them) on my mind.  They have some pretty significant health issues going on.  So I like to send them a little cheer in the form of cards every now and again to brighten their day and let them know we are thinking of them.  So for this card, I stamped 4 of the flower from Melanie Muenchinger’s A Year of Flowers 2, colored with Copics and then some Stickles Diamond for sparkle and my Sakura Gelly Roll white pen for a little more depth.  I fussy cut them and popped one on Gina’s fabulous stitched ribbon, which is attached to white embossed card stock using the embossing folder from Cuttlebug called Bit of Paisley, but I just used the coordinating border.  The DP is from my stash and the sentiment is from Gina K’s Various Verses.

This was fun. I love apples and this wheelbarrow full of them from Rupa’s So Grateful stamp set over at StampTV was just the ticket for a fun fall card. The sentiment is from GinaK's Various Verses. I stamped the apple and sentiment images with Distress Ink “Rusty Hinge” and also used that same ink for shading. The background DP is from my stash and the sentiment tag is by Spellbinders and is called “Framed Tags One”. The ribbon is by GinaK. Used a little Sakura Stardust glitter pen but it’s hard to see in the photo. I colored the image with Copics.

An Autumn Note Card

For this one I pulled that gorgeous Sunflower from Theresa Momber’s Autumn Beauty Stamp Set from GinaK Designs at StampTV. Colored with Copics and shaded with Memento Tangelo. It was stamped using Memento Potter’s Clay. The pearls and papers are from my stash.  I added a piece of Spellbinders Wrought Iron fence in black.  I like that look.

Halloween Bookmarks for the Grands

These bookmarks were made with several images that I put together and layered onto digi papers.  They are all pre-colored so the only thing I did was highlight with Sakura Stardust glitter pen and then added raffia strands.

Hello Witches!

My first Halloween card of the season.  I used this cute digi image from SKdigis by Sonia Kertz and it's called Bee Queen.  I colored her using Copic markers, layered her up on some Halloween remnants I had, added a few rhinestones to her broom, and the sweet sentiment I got with her I popped over orange and purple threads.

My Tomatoe Harvest

Well this has nothing to do with wine or making cards, but I do enjoy gardening when I'm not in my craft room, and as you can see I'm enjoying a wonderful first harvest of tomatoes.  Boy are they yummy!

Birthday wishes for you

Just celebrated my Mother’s 87th birthday. I tried for the first time the triple time stamping technique using Melanie Muenchinger's Year of Flowers 2 stamp set from StampTV, GinaK Designs. Colored with Copics after embossing images.

Matt & Amy's 17th anniversary card

Thinking of you

My very first post!

Today I am adding a card made using this sweet digi image from SKdigis called Kitty Pick-a-Boo.  Love that little kitty peeking out of the flower bed.  I colored him with Copic markers and generously sprinkled with glitter.  The pretty patterned papers are from GinaK's StampTV kit Springtime Silhouettes.  I hope you enjoy
