  1. 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. In the spirit of...

    Contemporary Butterfly

    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...

    April Poll is Up!

    Hi All! Thank you to everyone who voted in the March poll about making Easter cards. I was really surprised that 61% of you make Easter cards – that’s a lot more than I thought! I have a feeling there are many card-making experts among you, but I’d love to...

  4. Honey Hive

    Honey Hive

    Hi All! I thought I would do another card with dry embossing for the April challenge that launched on Monday. I added some clear embossing to my raised areas to make them appear like they are coated in honey. Here is a close-up: This Honey set is so cute. I...

    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!...

    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...

    Hi All! It’s time to get ready for another challenge! The challenge for April will be dry embossing. There are many options for dry embossing… embossing folders, impressions with your dies, de-bossing, scoring lines with your bone folder, etc. It pretty much boils down to raised and/or textured cardstock. There...

  10. Die-Cut Filler

    Die-Cut Filler

    Hi All, Today’s card is mostly about die-cutting. I have this Spiral Flower from Simon Says Stamp, which I cut multiple times. I used these flowers to fill an open area backed with dark cardstock. It’s very quick to make – I think the whole card took me 15 minutes....
