Happy Birthday Rainbow Cacti Card

Hey There!

Happy Cacit in front of colorful splattered background card

I can’t help but play with these Pawsome Stamps set. I just love these little cacti.

This was one of those cards that did not turn out at all how I had intended when I started! It was going to be a subdued, elegant card. These guys apparently had another idea. They wanted fun, funky and colorful!

I added some of the Pawsome Stamps sequin mix on this card. I do love sequins.

The background is Distress Oxide inks mixed with a bit of water and splattered all over. The circles are blended Distress Oxides. It is hard to tell in the picture, but the circles are cut out from the splattered piece and the blended colors are on a second piece glued behind to show through the cut outs.

I need to be better about taking pictures WHILE I’m creating. I’d love to start doing some tutorials for the cards I make.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Gummy Bear Rainbow Card

Hey There!

Gummy Bears Colored in a Rainbow on from of card

I’m part of a Facebook group that is filled with people who adore Lawn Fawn stamps. They issued a challenge to create a rainbow themed card. This is my contribution!

The second I ordered this little Germ Free Bear Lawn Fawn stamp set I know he needed to be turned into gummy bears. This challenge was a perfect time to do that.

They were colored using Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Brish Markers and a white gel pen. The rainbow stripe frame is also from Lawn Fawn.

Here is a close up of this yummy gummy!

I’ve colored two more sets of rainbow gummy bears because they were so much fun. I’m not sure what I’ll make out of them!

Thanks so much for visiting my little corner of the internet.

Glittery Betta Fish Card

Hey There!

Glitter Covered Blue Betta Fish infront of seaweed on card

Ages ago I colored and embossed this little guy and never have him a proper home on a card. He actually has a purple brother who is waiting for a home now!

This betta is part of a layered stamp set from Hero Arts. For this particular image I only used the base outline stamp and colored it in using Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Brush Markers instead of using all the layered stamps. The glitter embossing was done using top most layer stamp.

Here is a close look at his handsome guy!

Fun Cacti Family

Hey There!

Cacti representing family members made with Pawsome Stamps

This might possibly be one of my most favorite little projects.

This measure 4×6, so I framed it and it sits in our family room.

I used stamps from the new company Pawsome Stamps to create this representation of my little family with their cacti stamps. Each of us has our own little cactus “self”.

I used Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers to color each of these. I’ve said it before, and here I am saying it again, I do love these markers!

The names were stamped using Close to My Heart’s Tiny Type stamp set.

I also want to share this fun little silhouette card I made using the same stamp set.

I’d love to see you come visit me on Instagram, that is where I do most of my posting right now!
