Make New Friends, But Keep the Old…

By | May 23, 2017

To continue with the color and image theme from my last post, I’ve used a sentiment from the new Eastern Beauty photopolymer stamp set and framed it with a die cut from the coordinating Eastern Medallions Thinlits set: Like last time, I’ve cut the medallion from Bermuda Bay cardstock and paired it with a piece… Read More »

Star of Light Shines Tonight!

By | October 4, 2016

My past few posts have been scheduled ahead, and today is no exception, because I’ve been gallivanting around the country visiting my stamping peeps that live in the far-flung Northeast region. A year ago in September we stamped at Sherry’s house, and made these window cards: Sherry, Wanda, Mindy, Kathy and Karenlee – the Chittenden… 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 »

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 »

Glimmer Paper Pumpkins!

By | September 5, 2016

Remember a couple of days ago when I was showing my Halloween swaps and I mentioned that I had an idea for how to use the new Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper in the Holiday Catalog? Well, this weekend I had a chance to put my thoughts into action, and I designed this really fun and… Read More »

Now For the Halloween Swaps!

By | September 3, 2016

I’m glad I was swapping with Ann and Susan, because as I mentioned in a previous post, I don’t have any Halloween stamps from the current catalogs! But while my friends designed their swap cards independently of one another and they used different stamp sets, they did use the same colors of cardstock and ink,… Read More »

Beautiful Branches and Woodland Embossing Folder Together!

By | August 31, 2016

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 »

Well that was a trip! I’ve been trying to move my wordpress.com blog to a new location on the web for a couple of months now, and then all of a sudden – zip! Here I am, at my new address, faced with a blank blog template to fill with words, pictures and colors, just… Read More »
