Count Catula Card

Hello! The spooky night of Halloween is fast approaching and I couldn't resist making another card for this holiday. Last year I made a door hanging using the Count Catula image by Stampendous! along with several other images (click here), so today I made this Count Catula Card using the hanging as inspiration. The background was made using distress oxide inks. A creepy tree was die cut using a die from Simon Says Stamp and black grass die cut with the land borders die by Newton's Nook. Then I stamped and colored Count Catula by Stampendous and colored it with Copic markers. Several smaller stamps all from Hello Bluebird were stamped and colored and then everything was fussy cut. Everything was adhered flat and that's it! As you can see the cat is the star of this card, that grin is too cute to spook. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!🦇👻🎃

Candy Corn Card

Good day! I have a quick post to share this Candy Corn Card I made using a stamp set by Newton's Nook. The design is based off a card from the Newton's Nook stamp launch back in 2018. I've made several cards with this Candy Corn stamp set through the years, but I've always wanted to try stamping the candy around the sentiment like the example. It may have taken me several years to get around to it, but I finally made my version. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Love and Light Christmas Card

When it comes to Christmas decorations the old fashion Christmas warms my heart. The Shiny Holidays stamp set by Unity Stamps has that old fashioned feel that I love. The candle image was colored with Copic markers and paired with a poinsettia paper from Memory Box (Garland Collection 2020). A scrap piece of gold paper was used for the sentiment and three small polka dot red banners added for detail and that's it. A simple and easy handmade Christmas card. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day. 🎄

Small Stuff Christmas Cards

Hello! As we inch closer to Christmas I'm trying to make several Christmas cards each week. Here are two cards I made using the Small Stuff Christmas stamp set from Unity Stamps. I love changing the patterned papers when I make duplicates. It's a simple design and there isn't much coloring which helps speed things along. I'm entering these cards into The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day! 🎄🎄🎄

Birthday Card with Dogs

Hello! This afternoon I made this Birthday Card with Dogs to remember my sister's birthday. She would have turned 45 today, but she passed away ten years ago. Making cards has helped me process my grief for the loss of both my siblings and several furry family members. It's been a wonderful form of therapy for me. 

This Birthday Card with Dogs uses a stamp set by Newton's Nook that was the 2019 Stamptember exclusive at Simon Says Stamp. The images were stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers to coordinate with the patterned paper from the Birthday Wishes paper pad by Echo Park (2015). That's it and thanks for stopping by!
