Happy 2019!

Crazy but it's a new year already!

Slowly getting my crafting mojo back and for this card I cased from here (

I used D1827 Years of Sweetness stamp set, Charcoal ink, Black ink, and paper from the Something Fierce paper pack and a cut from the Artbooking cartrigde using design space and my Cricut.

I hope you all have an amazing year to come!

Have a great day!

I simply love this new stamp set from the new Holiday Expressions catalogue, Love Note.

(Candy Apple ink, White Daisy ink, and I forget what the grey is!)

(Carolina ink, sentiment from Oh What Fun - Cardmaking stamp set, snowman coloured with various ShinHan Touch Twin Markers and a Spectrum Noir marker for the red)

Here is the stamp set - I love using it!

Have a great day!

Happy 2018!

Happy new year, happy new Seasonal Expressions 1, happy new Stamp of the Month, happy everything!

My new year has started off with a bad cold but it can only get better from here in out, right?!

This is the first card I’ve made in long while and I am happy with how it turned out!  I can't seem to get a good photo of it however, it does look better in real life!

I used watercolour paints and water brushes with the Chelsea Gardens - Cardmaking stamp set and a bit of a sneak peek for you, the sentiment is from the Sunny Thoughts February Stamp of the Month set.  You can’t see it but I also used the Clear shimmer brush on the flowers and the butterflies.

Sentiment is stamped in Black ink, all else stamped with the Memento Black ink.

New catalogue can be found on my website, or if you are local, let me know you want one and I'll set one aside for you to swing by to pick it up.

Have a great day!
