Birthday Card for Mom




CAS(E) this Sketch #344
Hello, kind crafty friends.  I wanted to play with one of my new stamp sets from Concord and 9th, 
so I made this card for my mom.



 I used my Crimped Frame Die from The Greetery, ( I use this a lot now) I heat embossed the frame and greenery, then fussy cut it out and raised it with foam tape. I watercolored using my Zig Brush Pens. I splattered the sides to go with the sketch .

The guest designer this time is Darnell, Darnell has a beautiful card on the Cas(E) this Sketch blog.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Simple Things Sunflowers


Hello! Hope you are all enjoying the fall, if not the weather, then maybe the football and back to school activities.

Trying to get this done before the electric company shuts down the power. We're in high wind area and expected to get very high winds, maybe up to 70 mph. This is new preventative measure, to help prevent fires in this big wind event. Not sure I am going to like this very much. I know fires much worse!


I created this anniversary card for a family member, it will say happy anniversary on the inside but love this quote for a marriage.
I used The Greetery , Sunflower die linked below and the Crimped Frame dies, ( I did frame in a frame )
For the background  I used Distressed Oxide Ink and Taylored Expression Blending Brushes. I love those brushes so much!


I cant tell you how happy I am that I bought the sunflower dies , I think they can be all season depending on the color you choose. 

Take Care!
Thanks for the visit!

Haunt It


CAS(E) this Sketch #341



Hi there and Happy October! I made this background with a stencil and blender brushes . I decided to add the witch and play along in the CASE this Sketch challenge.



The Spellcaster Witch  die is new and from Poppystamps, I  also used the Halloween Fun stamp set for the sentiment .  The stencil is Memory box from 2016 called Halloween Delicate Web.The witch is cut out of a fine glittered cardstock .

 In the past I didn't use stencils very much until now with the Taylored Expression blending brushes. I was lucky enough to get the first batch when they came out.

Two years ago today was one of the scariest days of our life and also one of the most blessed days. 

Let not your heart be troubled.

Fall and Coffee


Hello, I know I haven't posted much lately . 
You know how it goes, certin times in life
 are just a bit more busy.


I enlarged this picture so you can see the Glossy Accents and a bit of shimmer on the leaves.

The flowers are from my backyard

I had a chance to play with some of newer stamps of mine from the :The Greetery. I stamped most of the coffee images as soon as I got them but didn't have time to put them together till now.
I used my Peerless watercolor sheets to color on the Harvest Home leaves. Most of the links below.

I hope you are all doing well, I am sure you are busy just like me. 
I hope you all have a beautiful fall.

Barbecue Time



Tag You're It #95

Hello! Can you believe summer is almost over!
Here in California it will be warm all the way till end of October ((normally)

The cute little bunny is from my son and his fiancée  along with other crafting gifts
 he brought back from his trip to Japan. Perfect for holding a card or tag.

Well I only had one bbq stamps and its from a company not in business anymore so I decided to use this fun guy from MFT called : Recipe for Happiness. You just have to pretend the barbecue  is not on the tag but he is barbecuing :) I also used my Taylored Expressions blending brushes... that I LOVE.

The tag dies are from Poppystamps I will link below.
Cant wait to see what you create.

Peace to you all and God Bless.

Having Fun With Stand Alone Dies


 Hi there , hope you are all doing well and enjoying the end of summer. So excited for fall to come, even though it will still be a bit warm here in California. 
Before getting to work on the remodel for the weekend I had fun using the new dies from The Greetery. I had to wait for them to come back in stock and boy am I glad I did. No stamping just color any way you want, pink, red, white, etc... I used my Peerless watercolor you can do what ever you want.


 I used an older stencil( Texture Mesh) I had from Memory box and used my Distressed Oxide inks with a brush for the lower edge design. 


I posted this on my Instagram account a few days ago if you would like to learn how I did them you can go  HERE 


I can't tell you how easy and fun these flowers are to make!
I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.
Thank you for the visit today.
