  1. Basketweave Flower

    Basketweave Flower

    Hi All, I decided to use my Basketweave Cutting Plate for today’s card, but instead of making a colorful weave like I did on this card, I made it completely white. It turned out to be such an elegant, textured background. Apparently the mainstream online stores aren’t selling this product...

  2. Panda Flop Card

    Panda Flop Card

    Hi All! I used My Favorite Things’ Flop Card die for today’s card. It sounds kind of strange, doesn’t it? It’s like “flip card” was taken, so they went with “flop card”, lol. I also used the die on this card. I used Happy Pandas again. I’ve used this set...

  3. Simply Paste

    Simply Paste

    Hi All! Today’s card is a great card to make when you need something quick for pretty much any occasion. I used embossing paste on top of patterned paper – a secret short cut. If you don’t have a detailed stencil for this purpose, make your own with a detailed...

    A quick note: Stampin’ Up! released its retirement list this week (see links in the News section to the right). I realized that you can view pictures of all the stamps here. Not sure when that happened, but it’s very helpful! There is also a color revamp in the new...

  6. April Challenge: Dry Embossing!

    April Challenge:  Dry Embossing!

    Are you ready for the next challenge? I think this one is going to be fun. There are many different ways to dry emboss. Most obviously, you could use an embossing folder. Maybe add a twist by using the flip side of your cardstock for a de-bossed look. Or, you...

  7. Colorful Magnolias

    Colorful Magnolias

    Hi All! I’m watercoloring with my distress markers today. It has been awhile since I did this – I forgot how easy it is! I used the Magnolias for Her set by Altenew. I’ve had this set for a very long time, and I don’t think I’ve ever used it!...

  8. A Little Birdie

    A Little Birdie

    Hi All, Ever since February’s Bird Challenge, I am on a bird roll! I’ve created more cards with birds in the last 6 weeks than in my entire card-making career. Today’s bird actually comes from a bunny set called Hoppiness. I used this set for the March Pastel Challenge on...
