I have a shimmery card to share with you today, featuring the Glory to God set by Flourishes and beautiful Golden Glitz Delecata ink  from Imagine Crafts.  This ink is so shimmery and beautiful in real life.  The picture does NOT do it justice.

I tried to catch some of it's shine here.  You would almost think I had embossed it - but I didn't!

So many fun things to look at on this Cyber Monday! :)  And if you check out the Flourishes Blog post at the bottom of the list you'll find a code for 30% off selected stamps, and a buy one / get one offer, too!  Woohoo!

Flourishes Friday Free For All

Happy Friday, everyone!  We have some pretty cards for you to browse between your Black Friday shopping sprees, today!  Our challenge was to use red and/or poppies.

Here's my card using the Year of Flowers 2 set and the Diamond Background...



I used the Diamond Background on  Christmas Red cardstock to give depth to my background layer   I stamped my image on a piece of Classic White cardstock and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers.  An embossed sentiment and some ribbon and twine and I was done!

Thank You


Hi everyone!

I wanted to play along with the Thankful challenge over at the Pink and Main Challenge blog today and since I don't have any of their stamps yet, I pulled out the fall Stamp TV Kit from Gina K and colored up this sweet bear.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions' Pumpkin Bouquet.  I love that font!

I am thankful for each and every one of you that drop by my blog or my instagram feed.   It is fun to share our art with others!  

BTW, I found some wonderful coloring pages if you are enjoying the new coloring craze.  Just scroll through Jane Maday's Facebook feed and you'll find lots of fun freebies with cute animals.  My favorite!!

Have a blessed day!

Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge #52

Hello again!

I've been tucked away in my craft room for the past few days, but organizing and purging rather than stamping!  I didn't want to miss playing along with the Your Next Stamp challenge, though, so I took a break yesterday and made a card with Birthday Phoebe.  She is just so darling!



Thanks for dropping by!

Friday Free For All - Christmas in July

Hello friends!

It is time for another Friday Free for All over at Flourishes LC.  Today we had an interesting challenge... make a card in non-traditional colors for the image.  I chose to make a Christmas card in 4th of July colors...



I used my MISTI to help me line up the Holiday Tree for stamping on the different layers.  After I embossed, I added a sentiment strip from the Christmas Sentiment set.

Flourishes New Release - Winter Birds


Welcome to Day 5 of the new release at Flourishes LC!  I'm sharing a card with the beautiful set Winter Birds today!


I colored the sweet little chickadee with Spectrum Noir Markers and popped him up over a patterned paper background.  The chickadee is easy to color, so it was really a quick card to put together.  Here is the full set.  Don't you just love those birds??

Flourishes New Release - It's All in the Details #2 / Art Deco Alphabet


Hello Again! I'm back with some more cards for the new release at Flourishes LC!  Our feature sets today are a detail set called It's All in the Details 2 and an alphabet set entitled Art Deco Alphabet. For my first card today, I used one of the frames from I's All in the Details 2 as a background for a little coffee vignette from the new set My Cup Overflows.  



Here is the set in full...


My second card today is SUPER clean and simple and relies a lot on the pretty background paper that I chose, because I can never think of what I want to spell when I'm using alphabet stamps.  LOL!




I chose a pretty piece of Authentique patterned paper for my card, which I matted and layered over a Classic White cardstock card base.  Simply adding "Hi" and some enamel dots finished off the card nicely.

Flourishes New Release - Camillia Love


Welcome!  Today I have a card to share with a set from the new release at Flourishes LC!  Bev has illustrated a beautiful new set called Camillia Love... (and, yes, this might look familiar... we had a little snafu in the posting order... LOL!!)



I decided to make a square card today, so I cut a piece of Classic White cardstock as my base, and then layered it with some Jillibean Soup patterned paper.  I colored my camilla and fussy cut it before layering it over a teardrop circle die and some pretty seam binding ribbon.  A sentiment and some enamel dots finish it off.

Flourishes New Release - My Cup Overflows


Welcome!  It's new release time at Flourishes LC and I have a card to share with the new set My Cup Overflows.




What a fun set full of coffee goodies for the coffee (or tea... or even hot chocolate!) lover in your life.  I did a little paper piecing and layering today which took my a little out of my comfort zone.  It was fun, though!  I can't wait to see what you will make with it!!

Just for You


Hi friends!

I have a card to share featuring this naughty puppy from Gerda Steiner Designs.  Isn't he cute?  It is a progressive challenge, so if you buy the digi and link up a card this month, you get next month's digi free.  Fun, huh??

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers and added a few gel pen highlights.  The sentiment is from the Your Next Stamp set called From My Garden.

Have a fabulous day!

Friday Free For All - Monochromatic

Hello friends!

I'm back today with a card for our Friday Free for All over at Flourishes LC.  Today we were challenged to make a monochromatic card.





I went with shades of orange and yellow for my card - with a dash of green thrown in.  I stamped my image from Year in Flowers 3, on watercolor paper and used my Tombow markers and a paintbrush to color them in.  The sweet sentiment is from another set in the Flourishes LC store called Autumn Blossoms.  It is such a pretty set and I love the sentiments it has... and it is only $10!! :)

Thankful for you


A few weeks ago now I was privileged to help out at Stamp Joy put on by Taylored Expressions in Ankeny, IA.  This was one of the stamp sets that I picked up during (one) of my shopping time(s).  I decided to spend some time coloring it today so I could play along with Day 2 of Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  Thanks for inspiring me, Cheryl!! :)

I colored my image with a mixture of Copics, ProMarkers, Spectrum Noir Markers and Prismacolor pencils.  With a white gel pen thrown in for fun! : )

Thanks for stopping by!
