Retirement Card


Hi There,

Sharing a retirement card that I made for a wonderful lady that just retired at our workplace. She was very pleasant to work with and we all wish her the best. I made this card special for her from our team.

I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink using the stamp from High Hopes Rubber Stamps – Wild Party T102.

I used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour all of the characters in.

Sentiment is from Peachy Keen Stamps – SY-902 Hillbilly Holler Set 3. I stamped it with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

The frames were cut out with My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out.

Background patterned paper is from DCWV The Birthday Wishes stack, 6 x 6″ paper.

She loved her card, hope you do to!

Beary Merry Christmas Bears


Hi There,

Just getting an early start on this years Christmas cards. I make over 40 cards every year!

All cards are made using Too Cute By Jessica – Little Lovelies A Beary Merry Christmas. .svg design is by Jessica Owens.

I uploaded the patterns for the bears into Cricut Design Space and cut using my Cricut Explore.

Inked all of the edges for the bears and accessories and then ran the pieces through my Xyron’s for easy assembly. Highlighted the eyes with Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

For the first bear, sentiment was stamped using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Sentiment is from Jaded Blossom – Season’s Tweetings.

Used Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies. I ran the die half way through my Big Shot and then turned it around to get the ribbon edge on both sides.

Patterned Paper – American Crafts – Merry and Bright 6 x 6″ pad and American Crafts – Holiday 6 x 6″ pad. The top patterned paper was cut out using Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames. I also used the same die for the foam used to make this a shaker card. Filled the shaker card with Creatology Glitter.

Mother’s Day Card


Hi Everyone,

Thought I’d share the card that I made for my mom for Mother’s Day.

The stamp is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps – Snuggles and Cuddles T503.

I stamped the image twice. Once as a mask so that I could do my background first and then again with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Coloured it in with Spectrum Noir markers.

Here is a close-up.
