    New Inky Whisper Sisters and a peek at things.

    New Inky Whisper Sisters I want to give a huge welcome to our New Inky Whisper Sisters. Yes, Bonnie and Clyde decided to be co-demonstrators. I will say that the first item on their wish list was the Cat punch. Second only to the Notes of Cheer Kit Collection items with the butterflies. They have several cards to make, I took down the list… Mooch – because he does not hiss at them. Penelope – because she smells so nice Mr. B because is really needs to like them. Logan because he is always nice and gives good pets. Cuddles because they were not big enough for Mother’s Day cards…

    Five of the 2021 In-Colors together, all together.

    Five of the 2021 In-Colors Together So this card originally started out for my team, Five the 2021 In-Colors together. Just in case they had not purchased the colors. Just something to help my team out. Yes, it is super simple, but dontcha love how easy they all go together?? The Evening Evergreen background is perfect to let the other four colors just pop off the card front. Keeping the cardbase super neutral of course, in Crumb Cake. Inky Whisper Sisters Supporting my team is huge. I do truly want to give them tools and looks that they can use, duplicate and offer to a variety of cardmakers. Here is…

    Inky Whisper Sisters Swap from January and more.

    Inky Whisper Sisters Swap Last Month for the Inky Whisper Sisters swap I wanted everyone to know … That they are Amazing!! I knew that this card would not only fit the swap idea, but would also cheer up someone that just might need it! Stamparatus made quick work… The lined up edge and stamping went quick using the Stamparatus. This amazing tool makes it look the same EVERY time. Just to help you out… You will want to just two slots each time. TIP: The two stamps that I used here are smaller. Meaning, that using a full sized ink pad gets kinda messy. You may just want to…

    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…

    Inky Whisper Sisters Swap Sketch card.

    Inky Whisper Sisters Swap Sketch Have you ever tried creating a card from a sketch?? I love sketches, why?? Well, you can use the layout or design that the sketch provides. However, you can change the shapes, or the orientation of the card. Because a sketch is just to get you thinking. It sure was fun to see what the Inky Whisper Sisters swap sketch cards turned out to be!! Take a look at the things that I choose to “C.A.S.E.” (copy and selectively edit). I liked the way the twine was added, because everything should have some sort of ribbon, right?? But I used circles instead of a square…

    These four beautiful ladies are part of my team. Today’s Team Christmas party was PACKED full of fun, laughs, crafts and food. Sadly however, not everyone was able to attend.
