Summer is here!

July 3, 2022
Summer is here and the monsoons gearing up! I was inspired to make this fun summer card from an Artisan Design Team member from SU! last month. Using the simplest die you can create a wow card. This card is a Slimline measuring 8.5 by 3.5. I used a 1/4 mat using white on white cardstock. The base card is colored in a rainbow of colors using direct to paper with a blending brush. Once you have colored the base simply die cut the top layer using an assortment of fun, small dies! Be sure to save ALL the little cut out bits and glue them back in. The die cut images are then glued back on the card in a fun offset manner. I finished off the card using the Writing end of my Stampin write markers. Colors used include: Mango, Tahitian Tide, Polished Pink, Parakeet Party, Sweet Sorbet and Orchid Oasis. Have fun with this idea using dies and ink colors you already own!

Then the holidays hit and now spring is on its way with even more weddings! I will do my best to share some cards and updates here on a more regu...

Flowering Cactus Card Class

February 9, 2021

Being from Az I am in love with anything cactus! And this "Flowering Cactus" medley of product do not disappoint! Love! For class this week we are cutting the image out from the DSP and creating a focal point on this bi-folding card. Where the two layers overlap I snuck in a super thin magnet so the card secretly closes! The left side is about 2 1/2 inches wide and the right is about the same. If a standard card is only 4 1/4 wide these two over sized sides will overlap nicely. Have fun explo...

This is my Christmas card for September. Locally I teach a class every week and on the 3rd Thursday we have been making a Holiday card.

In the mean time here is this months inspiration for a Christmas card. I am using Peaceful Nativity Stamps and matching dies. I love how 3D the stable came out.

Hallows Night Magic Card...

September 8, 2020
Here is a peak at this weeks card class!

For this weeks class we are making a Halloween card. If Halloween is not your thing stick with using just the flowers in this collection and it could easily become a steampunk or Gothic style card. We are using a mix of black paper with different finishes on this card. Glitter, glossy and some shimmer! For class you can pick from an assortment of DSP paper and embellishments. I am also in love with the dark "Iridescent Pearls" from this collections. If ...

New Look!

August 26, 2020
Hi everyone!
I think it is good to challenge yourself to try new things and make new goals. For me, a big one, is moving more of my business online! That means blogging and web design. Yikes! If there is one thing in life that I am not very good at it would be spelling. Designing and sewing do not require me to focus on grammar! So, my new goal is to work on all of that and bring what I do on a daily basis online. Lord help me. Check out the new look of my website and let me know what you thin...
