My sweet husband bought me an air compressor for Mother’s Day (don’t worry, I asked for it!).  This is the first card I made using it (for the background).  I might have over done it but it was so fun to use.  I guess I’ll be an airbrushing fool for a while, so bear with me until I get it out of my system!  Until then, enjoy the color!

Stamps & Accessories –  Inkadinkado, sewing machine, Copic markers, Martha Stewart glitter (bronze)



This image is from Inkadinkado….aren’t they cute?  


Another card using Our Daily Bread Designs.  I used some bright colors to give it a different look from the soft pinks I used last time.






I love the images from Whipper Snapper stamps.  They are so cute and fun to work with!






In one of my previous posts I was getting my feet wet with 3×3 cards.  I thought since I’ve sort of jumped back in I’d get my knees wet.  Okay, kidding…humor can get warped when you have three little ones at home!  LOL!  


Bird Card – Our Daily Bread Designs (LOVE their stamps!!!)

Lantern Cards – Inkadinkado 

Cross  Card- GinaK Stamps (Love this set too!)












I’ve been getting my feet wet stamping again by making 3×3 cards.  3×3 cards have always been fun to make.  I used a variety of stamps, Stampin Up, Kodomo, The Memory Box, Inkadinkado and a Quickutz die for the strawberry.  Thanks for looking!

Cammie is having some AWESOME BLOG CANDY for an AWESOME CAUSE!  She has asked that you make a card for a caretaker of a person who is affected with Alzheimer’s.  I have personally seen the trying times one goes through when a loved one has Alzheimer’s, so this was a request that I was definitely on board with! One lucky winner will win over $1000 in prizes, plus some handmade cards and gifts by some very talented stampers!  Head on over and check it out, it really is amazing!

Here are my cards, I made three of them.  I made one for a friend who recently lost her Father-in-Law to Alzheimer’s, and the other two are for the staff at Artman Home out in Ambler, PA (see Cammie’s post).  Thanks for looking!

Stamps – Mona Lisa Moments (Cornish Heritage Farms), Inkadinkado

Accessories – Cuttlebug embossing folders, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, Martha Stewart Apricot ribbon, Long Rectangle Nestabilities, Groovy Guava card stock (SU), Lemon Tart card stock & Ribbon (PaperTrey), Stampers White Select card stock (PaperTrey), Metallic Ivory card stock, pearls, crystals, & pins (Michaels)

Good morning! A friend of mine was kind of enough to order some extra tins for me and I promised to post them when I was done doing something fun with them! LOL! So, here is my third tin, the other two I’ll get to later.

I made this as a gift, it’s a “scrap tin”. A close friend likes to scrap, but has two young children. Well, having young ones myself I know how hard it can be to catch all those moments you want to remember. Now she can jot down those funny moments, throw some photos in, or add mementos that she can scrap later. This came together pretty easily with the coordinating paper and ribbon. I used StazOn for the stamping and used French Script (SU) and a floral set by Inkadinado for the outside of the tin. The dividers were stamped using Everyday Blessings (PaperTrey Ink). I bought the cutest little butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), punched it twice and glued them together for a 3D look, ran it through the Swiss Dots embossing folder and added it to the first divider. The tab punch is from SU, and the “K” was cut using Plantin Schoolbook (Cricut E).  I had fun putting this together!  Thanks for looking!

Here is another card made using this set by Inkadinkado. The scalloped circle was punched with the giga punch (Marvy) and Elegant Eggplant is the main color. I bought some Oregon Raindrops from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts and used a small punch to punch out card stock and adhered it to the bottom. It changes the raindrop from clear to any color you happen to have…love it! There is also Dazzling Diamonds around the raindrop. Three petals were stamped, cut out and attached for a nice, 3D effect.
