    Happy Fathers Day with a Retiring item still available.

    Happy Fathers Day with a Retiring One last Happy Fathers Day with a Retiring Seas the Day bundle. One of these cards I did for the library and the other was for YouTube. I love the large sea die, however, Ohhh the possibilities. Using all the seaweed and little parts. Which is your favorite the octopus or the crab?? The concept of these are pretty much the same. I have to say that the dies are super fun in this bundle. I wanted to try and add a pop of color using the Tahitian Tide. Using that with the Calypso Coral for the crab was a total winner!! I do…

    My Dad He’s all That Here we go, My Dad He’s all That. I would add in a bag of chips, but he would not eat them. Here is the new He’s All That suite. I have been having lots of fun with this one. I have used it for a couple ideas. And did you know that It is the June Ding Dong Ditch too. You bet!!

Apparently not for this one. I love it, YOU?? Here is a closer view…

    May Culver Library Class was almost lost, but found.

    May Culver Library Class Thankful that things are getting back to normal even for the May Culver Library card class. This one has a fun addition using the new Beauty of Friendship bundle (suite too). Somewhere we did a Girl’s Night card similar to this. However this time I added the 3D look with the new dies. I love how it actually looks like dad is enjoying his tea under the two trees. You really can get a good idea of these tree tops now. Yes, I so love my dimensionals!! The A Cut Above stamp set includes both birthday and father’s day sentiments. I do not know why this…

    Flowering Cactus with Curvy dies. FUN!!

    Flowering Cactus with Curvy Can you believe this Flowering Cactus with the Curvy dies card?? I really wanted to try and use up some of these left over pieces. Even the sentiment is from the Flowering Cactus Product Medley. However the pieces that it is sitting on are 1 1/2 inch Circle Punch and the Tasteful Labels dies for the layering piece. Do you want to hear my favorite part?? It is the Curvy dies. This fun little add really worked out. And to thing that the top here was an extra piece. Really, it was the bottom piece that I had a plan for. Hummm, did I share that…

    February’s Second Girl’s Night Card, Enjoy the Moment.

    February’s Second Girl’s Night card. Here is February’s Second Girl’s Night card… Did you miss the first one?? Check out Sunday’s post here. I wonder … did you miss this stamp set in the Mini?? It is called Enjoy the Moment. I love this and really think of fall when I originally saw it. Why?? because that is when I collect seed from the dry flowers in the garden. That really is what these images are. Seed pods of all sorts. The largest image is poppy seed pods. That is usually the first pods you can collect. Mid summer usually. I know, ANYWAY… This card came together pretty quick cause…

    In Good Taste Birthday card with wood elements.

    In Good Taste Birthday Needing a masculine card, In Good Taste Birthday card is a place to start. The In Good Taste Suite has DSP, Stamp set, Dies, Embossing Folder and these awesome wood elements. However for this card we only use the DSP (designer series paper) and the wood elements. Can not see the Wood elements?? Well I added a touch of ink. This photo shows them off a little bit better. How did I do that?? Well I just placed them on the ink pad. You may want to lightly tap on them for full coverage. They will need to be allowed to dry. It really does not…

    Layers of Tasteful Touches labels.

    Layers of Tasteful Touches. In need of a masculine card?? Do you like woodgrain?? The In Good Taste Suite has all you need! Including little wood elements. No, I did not use them on this card. This one is another Culver Library Class card. Layers of Tasteful Touches dies was what I needed to add interest with what started out as a little stamping.

Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede inks were what we used. Three different DSP pieces and four of…

    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. The “grass” in that one is where we started the watercolor technique. They the leaves on the second (middle)…
