2017-03-24; U – Tag


With a new month comes a new set of Tag & ATC alpha swaps. We are nearing the end. Today I have the U-Tag. U for umbrella.

I had just received numerous stamps of Asian design so I pulled them out and made a stamped collage.

I added the umbrella from the Cricut cartridge Pagoda, cut at 3.25″

I stamped the Asian coin onto gold foil card stock and punched out.

2017-03-23; March Stamp Camp Card #4 & review


This is the last card that we made at the March Stamp Camp. I brought home all of these pieces and a few extra’s so that I could work with them at home.

2017-03-15 (5)

With the help of my stamping friend Tara, the card morphed into this design.

I brought home a chocolate colored bunny as some of the extra pieces. I covered him with glaze and added him to the center of the card.

2017-03-15  morphed-2 (4)

I die cut 3 hello’s, glued and stacked each of them. When I came home I added glaze to this cut out and added it to the card.

And one more look at the card before you go on about your day…a dramatic change from the original design!

2017-03-22; March Stamp Camp Card #3


this is the card that I brought home. Originally it had a large sentiment in the white section. I knew when looking at the design I wanted to change it up, so I brought the pieces home with me.

Here is what it morphed into.

I recently was the winner of a random draw and received an acrylic stamp set called Pretty Posies by CardzTV. It includes the flowers, pots and sentiments.

2017-03-15 (morphed) (4)

Here I have added stamped flowers to the pot by masking. I also added large glittered stickers as the flower centers.

2017-03-21; March Stamp Camp Card #2, sponged square with daffodil


This is what the daffodil card started out as. I decided to bring the pieces home and add to it just a bit.
I did want to show you what it started out as though.

2017-03-15 (7)

Here you see what it morphed into.

2017-03-15 (morphed) (8)

I added a pot by CardzTV acrylic stamp set called Pretty Posies.

2017-03-15 (morphed) (6)

I cut out a 2nd flower head and popped it up just a bit. I also added some jelly roll glitter pen.

2017-03-15 (morphed) (7)

Besides adding DP, doily and pot I also popped up the mat and added embossing to the DP.

Thanks for stopping by today…be sure to come back. I have two more cards and a review!

2017-03-20; March Stamp Camp Card #1


I am going to take a break from posting more of the Creative Cards from the cartridge with the same name just until I have another batch ready to share. At the end I will give a full review.

This week I will share what I brought home from the March Stampin’ Up stamp camp. This is card #1 using the die cut portion of the piece as a stencil. I love the colors.

2017-03-15 (8)

It was tricky to get the bow to stay in one place with those angled sides.

2017-03-15 (1)

Here is a close look at the stenciled area. Love the soft colors.

2017-03-15 (2)

One more look at the card before you go on about your day…

2017-03-15 (9)

Be sure to stop back. I have 3 more cards to share, some of which morphed into something else when I brought them home.

2017-03-19; Handmade kitchen tool meets Best of Cluck


This is a hand made kitchen tool. Made from oak and tremendously durable. I stamped on one side of the handle using Best of Cluck by Stampin Up.

The close view of the chicken shows there was some ink bleed, but not much.

My new kitchen tool is already hard at work. Don’t you wish you had a heavy duty oak tool in your kitchen gadget jar?

2017-03-17; Creative Cards Cartridge by Cricut, Card #5


You have just arrived in time to see Card # 5 in the series from the Cartridge Creative Cards.

2017-03-08  Creative Cards # 5 (3)

I let this flocked & glittered dp do all of the work for me.

2017-03-08  Creative Cards # 5 (2)

The mini sentiment is by Hero Arts. I covered the tiny circle in crystal effects which is why there is a slight halo in the center. That is the ink reacting to the crystal effects. I’m never sure which ink will react with it, some do and some don’t.

What happened to card #4 you may ask?
I took Card # 4 with me to the March Shoe Box craft night.
You can see that design again HERE if you are interested.
I think the ladies really liked the tri-fold design.
