A few cards…

I haven’t posted any new cards in quite a while, you can see some of my previous work at, that blog will be coming down soon though, as I am combining both of my blogs into one.  Anywho, here are some examples of some recent work I’ve completed…

Allison's Bear Card
Allison’s Bear Card

A made this card using a kit from HeartString Designs that we got at the Creating Keepsakes Convention.  She tweaked it some, and I have to say it’s not her best work, but she did it all herself!


This is a bookmark I made using the Stampin’ Up!(c) set Fifth Avenue Floral and the Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collections Sets.  The flowers are watercolored, then outlined with a glue pen, and sprinkled with dazzling diamonds glitter.  The colors used are both Stampin’ Up!(c) Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray.  The ribbon is pink organza and Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon.

This card is made using the retired Stampin’ Up!(r) set Farm Fever.  I used a cuttlebug embossing folder on the Real Red panel and the white card base.  It also uses Stampin’ Up!(c) Prints Designer Series Paper in Real Red.  I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and then used the Gamsol technique.  I love the way that this technique turns out!  The ribbon is black gingham.

Upsy Daisy in Pink and Chocolate, Outside

This card uses the Stampin’ Up!(c) set Upsy Daisy (111710).  It uses Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip paper, Pink Pirouette Classic Ink, and Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I used the Big Shot Machine and the Top Note Die to cut the main image out, then used the corner rounder punch and the round tab punch for the sentiment.  The ribbon is Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip Grosgrain.

Pink Shimmery Pretties
Pink Shimmery Pretties

This card uses Shimmery White Cardstock, pink patterned paper from somewhere (sorry, don’t remember where it came from) and white organdy ribbon.  I used the Stampin’ Up!(c) pretties kit and painted the flowers with Bubble Gum Shimmerz!  I love this product, it’s so versatile and I adore the way it shines!  The center of the flowers are clear rhinestone brads.  The sentiment is from the Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection Sets.  Also, the edges of the patterned paper are punched using the scallop edge punch.

Masked Scripture

This card is made using the Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection Sets.  If you look closely at the focal image you can see where I placed a mask from Tim Holtz and sponged over it in Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip Classic Ink from Stampin’ Up!(c).  The bottom of the card is the Stampin’ Up!(c) Parisian Breeze Specialty paper.  It is so wonderful to use, it is almost like a fabric paper.  I also used Flower Fusion Too felt flowers in Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze as accents, with Pewter Brads in the center.  The edge of the Chocolate Chip paper is punched with my Martha Stewart edge punch, I apologize for not knowing the name.I hope you’ve enjoyed this glimpse of some of my recent artwork.  I have a few other cards to post, but they are being sent to people and I don’t want to spoil the surprise.  I’ll get them posted once I know they have reached their destination.  I also will post more frequently so that there isn’t a giant post like this!  :o)


in Him,
