Birthday Card – Fishin’ Friends 2018


Sharing a birthday card that I made for my older brother this year! He loves his camp and fishing. His dog is usually by his side and so I thought I would make him a nice fishing themed card this year.

I used my MISTI and stamped all images with Memento – Tuxedo Black onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Then used a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to colour.

On the front I used a stamp from Whimsy Stamps called “Fishin’ Friends” from the Crissy Armstrong Collection.

Here is a close-up:

On the inside, I decided to continue with the theme. All stamps on the inside and the front sentiment are from Ai – Art Impressions Clear Stamps Reel Great Guys Set – 4900 by the artist Bonnie Krebs.

Here is close-up:

Sentiments were stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Congratulations and Best Wishes


Hi There,

Sharing a card that I made for a lady at my workplace. She is going to be starting a new job and I thought it would be nice to wish her well. She was a super nice young woman and she will be missed. I wish her the best of luck!

For the front of the card, I created my own background using various Tim Holtz Ranger inks. I added a little bit of water and created a splatter background onto watercolour paper and then heat set it.

The image was from a former Kit and Clowder August 2016 Pencils monthly class using La La Land Crafts – Marci with Camera.

On the inside I created a little scene using stamps and embossing folder called Safari Friends which came free with Papercraft Essentials #145. Used Memento – Tuxedo Black and MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to stamp the images. Coloured in with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Die cuts from: PaperCrafter Today which also came free with their magazine.

Hope you like it!

Sympathy Card – Cat


Hi There!

Sharing a sympathy card that I made for a dear cousin that had to say goodbye to her little son around Christmas time. I say son, because to us, our cats are like children. We love them and cherish them in our lives everyday and it is heartbreaking when we have to let them go and say our final good-byes. We also lost our little girl last year and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her or the others that we’ve had to say good-bye to. So we know first hand how it feels when someone else we know loses their pet.

For the card front, I chose the little girl holding onto her cat because I thought it represented how we still hold onto our loved ones in our hearts long after they are gone. I left the cat white as “Spot” was a white cat.

Here is a close-up of the image.
