    January 2021 Pumpkin Alternative Sending Hearts

    January 2021 Pumpkin Alternative For our First of January 2021 Pumpkin Alternative ideas. Paper Pumpkin shared this submission with everyone on their page last week..

    1/19 Coffee and Cards, Stamp ink and paper.

    1/19 Coffee and Cards Oh we had fun on 1/19 Coffee and Cards. This Stamp, Ink and Paper card just turned out soooo pretty!! Very Vanilla was the 3 3/4 x 5 layer I started the card. Here is where you need to look into your ink stock. I looked for a light and a slightly darker color ink that would look good at leaves and flowers. Soft Sea Foam paired well with Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride with Rococo Rose. The fifth ink was Soft Suede for the sentiments. We did find out that you COULD stamp twice the same color and get a similar look. Like the extra…

    Stamping in Embossing Paste using Dragonfly Garden

    Stamping in Embossing Paste I love trying different things like Stamping in Embossing Paste. Sometimes you just have to be brave and try stuff. This however is not new. I have a YouTube video on this back in 2018. For that video I used a now retired woodgrain stamp, check it out here. For these cards that tall image was calling to be colored. That was not all, it needed some texture. You will not only need your Dragonfly Garden stamp set (bundle saves 10%), Dandy Garden ribbon and Dandy Garden DSP, but embossing paste too. You could also get the whole Dandy Garden Suite. However, I love the coloring…

    Cuddles Birds and Snow, but not yet.

    Cuddles, Birds and Snow?? This post is all about Cuddles, Birds and Snow but not yet. The dark figure is Mr. Bigglesworth. He was not sure at first if he wanted Cuddles at our house. He has since decided that she was cute. However, Cuddles in true kitty fashion is taking over. She talked Joe into moving the old “treehouse” up on the porch. It was from the bedroom that was moved outside during Christmas. To say that she likes it is an understatement. She can see over the rail and all around. Yes, she can even see in the house. Well, of course. Dare I add that her little…
