Fall Flower Basket Card

By | October 13, 2016

This Fall Flower Basket Card was the result of a one-on-one stamping session I had with my sister-in-law Kathy last week. I not only got to stamp with my entire group of card-making friends and family while I was on vacation, but sitting down with a couple of them individually for paper art crafting is something… Read More »

Do It Your Way!

By | October 6, 2016

Just a quick post with a fall offering using a new set from the Holiday catalog, Basket of Wishes. Now, my stamping partner Sherry would certainly watercolor this image in; she is a master at shading detailed images such as this! But since I am pressed for time today, I’ve elected to do it my… Read More »

Another Family Birthday!

By | October 2, 2016

Yesterday my sister-in-law Mindy had a birthday; today our nephew Joe of Colchester, VT is celebrating his. October in Vermont is well-known for Leaf Peeping, so I decided to go with a foliage season theme on his card: You may remember seeing this maple leaf out of Cajun Craze cardstock with the Boho Chic embossed… Read More »

Rabbit Redux

By | October 1, 2016

Ok, just kidding – this has nothing to do with the John Updike novel, I just decided to bring back my “Rabbit, Rabbit” card from last fall because I revamped it to give to my sister-in-law Mindy of Burlington, Vermont for her October 1st birthday today!   Unfortunately, I won’t be able to direct you… Read More »

Finding the Sweet Spot

By | September 28, 2016

Art is subjective and there’s also something to be said for developing a personal style; when my sister-in-law Sherry and I submit cards for consideration to the magazines, even if I haven’t seen her cards ahead of time I can usually pick them out by sight when they are published because I know her signature… Read More »

‘Tis a Gift to be Simple

By | September 22, 2016

This is the last of the nine cards that Ann, Susan and I made to swap with each other last month to prepare samples for the Holiday catalog, and it’s one of my favorite! As I mentioned in an earlier post, one of Susan’s favorite materials is designer series paper, and a card can be… Read More »

A Tale of Two Cards

By | September 17, 2016

Every card has a story and these two are no exception: There are distinct similarities between these two cards, although Ann and I didn’t make them together. Her Harvest Moon card was part of the summer swap that we both worked on in August. My Blessed Maple Leaf card was just made today, the result… Read More »

It’s Birthday Time for a Sweet Girl!

By | September 12, 2016

Our baby grand-niece Piper will be celebrating her 1st birthday this week! And in case you were wondering what a red fox might want to say to a little girl on her birthday: (I computer-generated the inside sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock.) Piper and her mom, dad and big sister Cricket live in Vermont, and… Read More »

Oh, Christmas Treat!

By | September 10, 2016

On swap day, our friend Susan showed Ann and I how to make a Christmas card that I really love! It’s simple but elegant with some shiny gold accents, and it would be a really easy card to reproduce when making multiples and time gets short: It was inspired of Susan to use the Woodland… Read More »

I Love the Flower Girl

By | September 8, 2016

Here is another one of the cards that I made for the card swap with Ann and Susan last month. It’s called “Boho Chic” nowadays, but when I saw the Paisleys & Posies stamp set in the Holiday Catalog I was transported right back to my childhood. In those days it was bell bottom blue… Read More »

Sweater Weather

By | September 6, 2016

When I was stamping swaps with Ann and Susan at Ann’s house in the middle of August, it was close to 100 degrees, no kidding! She lives over an hour north of me and it’s always a little hotter up there because I’m located where we do get some coastal breezes at times. So, we… Read More »

What Does the Fox Say?

By | August 18, 2016

I’m still having fun, working with my Foxy Friends stamp set, and luckily, when you’re the card artist, you can make the Fox say anything you want him to! This time I decided to make a different kind a card, a type of Z-fold, and when it is opened you’ll see what I mean: It’s… Read More »

When You Care Enough…

By | August 8, 2016

…to send the very best. Yes, I know that I’ve ripped that off – that phrase is connected to a well-known card company just like the term “kleenex” is to any box of paper tissues! But did you happen to notice that over the past few years, the big name greeting card companies have started… Read More »

Stop Everything and Make a Card!

By | August 5, 2016

When it comes to a birthday, a graduation, a wedding, or even a baby, you know you’ve got some time to plan ahead and make a card, right? But often, that’s not the case with a Get Well card – sometimes you have to set everything else aside and get to work on that card,… Read More »
