  2. Clean-and-Simple Balloons

    Clean-and-Simple Balloons

    Hi All! I love this new balloon set I got not too long ago. There are 5 different shapes, and each shape has 3 stamps. Today I’m using the two multi-step stamps that give a dimensional look to the balloons. I find that using water to blend multi-step stamps just...

  3. Koala Love

    Koala Love

    Hi All, I’m jumping the gun on the January Love Challenge! This koala is so cute – he just screams love. The card is pretty simple – something I think we could all use a little of right now with the holidays. I initially made the background green. When I...

  5. Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas!

    Just popping in one last time to wish you a Merry Christmas! We surprised Courtney with a dog on Thursday. Yes, we already have 2 dogs, but one is mine and one is Alaina’s (my older daughter). I wanted Courtney to have one to call her own, so we adopted...

  6. Two-for-One Backgrounds

    Two-for-One Backgrounds

    Hi All! Today I’m coloring one background, then splitting it to make two cards. I created 2 backgrounds with the Kaleidoscope Leaves Background (thank you Joyce!)… one with warm colors and one with cool colors. I colored them with my Zig markers, which are perfect for detailed designs. They have...

  7. You’re the Bomb

    You’re the Bomb

    Hi All! It was like an explosion in my head when I had the idea to color a bomb pop and use this sentiment from Paper Smooches’ Slang Gang. I couldn’t wait to share it with you! I’ve used these sentiments several times – one of my favorites is this...

  9. Throwback Thursday!

    Throwback Thursday!

    Hi All! The purpose of Throwback Thursday is to “repurpose” some of the older content, making it new again. With the hundreds of videos, you probably have forgotten or maybe missed some of the old stuff. So, once a month I’m here with a fun reminder. For today’s throwback, I...

  10. Multi-Color Feather

    Multi-Color Feather

    Hi All! Today I’m using my Distress Oxide inks on one of the beautiful feather stamps in this new Golden Feather set by Altenew. Because the Oxide inks layer on top of each other, rather than blending with one other, it’s easy to preserve multiple colors on a stamp. I...
