Black & Gold with a POP!

Hello Friends!

You can see where the series of cards are going, right? A base card with a pop!



The base card is crumb cake. The "Winter Wonderland" Special Designer Series Paper is awesome. Gold with Black.


Again, using the botanical garden framelits and sponging the edges with coordinator classic inks.

Colors with a POP!

Hello Friends!

Here is what I have been up to, besides working on display board samples.

I always wanted to play with paper with a pop of color. 



I used the Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper with a splash of gold strip added to the base card.


I die cut the flowers and leaves from the "Botanical Bloom" framelits and just sponge the edges with finger daubers and coordinating ink pads.

Happy Friday!

Hello Friends!

Happy Friday!

I'm madly working away in my stamp room this past two weeks, and trying to make sure that I am ready to go to onStage Live 2016 in Salt Lake City. 

I submitted my artwork last month to see if I would be qualified for the Stampers' Display Board, and now that I am, I am waiting patiently for my order to come in so that I can finish up the display board. I have been working on limited supplies, and that is always challenging!

I know I have been lacking of blogging ... sorry, but I promise, you won't be disappointed. In the meantime, I will post some cards that I have been working on.



This card was part of the Garden blog hop this month. If you missed it, your can click on this link here


I stamped the Honeycomb Happiness chick onto shrinky dinky sheet, and colored with our Stampin' Marker (Hello Honey) on the rough edge. Then fussy cut the image and shrinking the image with my heat gun. Then I attached to my pre-cut out teapot.

Did you notice the flowers? The flowers are from the botanical garden, all die cut in real red cardstock. I positioned the flowers in place before die cutting the teapot. The teapot is from the Nice Cuppa die cut.





If you are in Salt Lake City, be sure to come by my display board. 

After the onStage is over, I can start showing my artwork.

Picture Perfect

Hello Friends!

It has been a heck of the week. For those who don't follow me personally, I had come down with shingles on my left arm, and was out of commission for the week. I am on the mends.

Thank goodness I have my mom and dad to the rescue.

Dad is retired, and he loves playing with ideas (like me ... a creator), and he built his own alkaline water filtering system, and gave me couple of jugs to drink. Between the medication and the water, it made the healing go faster.

I created this card for them from the "Picture Perfect" stamp set and watercoloring.


When I first got this set I wasn't too sure about it but the clear mount made it easy to do multi-layering. I had to practise first and then got the hang of it.



I fussy cut the hummingbird and popped it up with dimensionals. The background is a watercolor wash with tempting turquoise, and dabbed it with baby wipes to create the clouds, dry it completely with the heat gun, I added more wash on the bottom right and stamped several times with the flower and then added my hummingbird.


TIP: Before you stamp your sentiment, make sure that your watercolor paper is completely dry and add embossing buddy. Do a test by adding embossing powder to it before the actual stamping.

It's Official!

Hello Stampers!

It's Official! Just received an update from HQ, that I am one of the chosen artisan to put up a display board. So excited to see this as I have been wanting to do this for a long time.

Sadly, I can't show you and it is strictly confidential until after the onStage event.

I have a lot of work ahead of me, and so this post will slow down tremendously!

Nuggets - Thank You!

Hello Stampers!

Can you believe it? OnStage event is approaching fast! The packettes are ready to go for the Creative Circle Design Team: Make the Rounds event.

This past week, I have been designing again, hence the lack of post. Getting ready for the next hop called #imbringingbirthdaysback scheduled on April 5 before I leave for Salt Lake City. So glad that Shannon West is bringing birthdays back to the world with hand stamped cards.

April is my birthday month and I want to bring birthdays back too. So here is a sneak peak. This is a perpetual calendar that sits on your desk. Every time you make a card, there is enough space behind this 3D to store all your handmade cards. Details to come later.


When I talk about designs, these are custom 3D designs, and it takes a long time to come up with the ideas. Then the ideas turn into putting the measurements on a computer and have my electronic do its magic to cut them out. Of course, there is some tweaking involved to make everything perfect. Writing and filming are my most challenging parts. So when you see a long stretch of unscheduled post, that means I am working hard in the background.

Anyways, as I was packing things away, creating my thank you cards for the packettes. Then I was thinking that I should make something for the people who makes my life simple (the "service" people) like airline stewardess, taxi driver, the concierge clerks, etc. Someone who helps me. A word of thank you is fine, but I figure they will never remember me by saying thank you but they will remember me because I am giving them something special.

A handmade Thank You Hershey Nugget Holder. I revamped my nugget holder to hold five hershey nuggets inside and space available so that you can add a sentiment and now available for my e-cutter.

I started off by cutting out the base on Whisper White cs. When I first assembled my prototype, it was too plain, and decided to cut the designer papers and glue the DP to the back side. I also glue DP to the front of the sentiment so that it ties in all together and looked like a complete box.


The sentiment "Thank You" is from the One Big Meaning and I stamped the image on Whisper White with Black Archival ink, and punched it out with our 1-3/8" circle punch and then layered it with the #4 circle thinlits die on coordinating colors.



The PDF and e-cutters will be available shortly. Just wanted to show you my Thank You packs.
