    Dad, Happy Father’s Day

    Dad, Sorry I could not be with you today!! You know I thought about you first thing this morning. I hope you at least had a nice day. I know it would have been much more fun with all of us, but … You did get the twins at least. The cute and fun ones!! Not the big bratty ones. haha. Anyway, I have some fun treats to put in your coordinating box! Not going to tell you what I picked up… NOPE!! I sure hope that you like this card, but I also know that you usually like them all (smile). Here is the latest episode of Jennifer TV,…

    Snow Front?

    Sure does not look like a snowy scene. I really love how much this set changes when you change the colors. You can check the facebook live here. The only thing that was subtracted was the “smoke” from the chimney. To do that was just a matter of not inking that section of the cabin. Funny how the look changes also when you watercolor or just straight stamp. Can you tell which is which?? The first one (left) is the straight stamp. How can you tell? The leaf colors are darker.

    Paper Pumpkin-Fathers Day

At first, I was thinking a floating card, but due to unhappy stamping this was changed into just a quick card. Tomorrow is a new day for the floating card. Let’s turn lemons into lemonade. Still taking que from the box, pulled out a Pretty Peacock card base and ink. Add a little more sentiment from the Well Said (148796) stamp set. Pick a bird to highlight, using a mostly dry aqua painter. You need a light hand so you…
