Yummy Christmas

B5E28B5B-885F-4B8C-885F-A7094D501AB8Don’t ya just love gingerbread at holiday time??  I do, so I just had to have this new SU! set called Yummy Christmas.  I stamped it in Versamark on tip top taupe cardstock and embossed using detail white embossing powder.  Then I colored it with SU! markers in real red and garden green and tip top taupe.  I used the snowfall accents puff paint to make the snow.  Finished it up with a piece of double stitched garden green ribbon.  Popped everything up on pop dots for dimension.  Hope you like the card!!


Hearts come home

0C4D3DAB-CE2C-4376-B01B-2C2289F2B05DI am kinda obsessed with these little houses in the new SU! From Our House to Yours.  I was on the fence about buying the set, but so happy I did because I have numerous card designs floating around in my head!  For more than just Christmas!!!  So, I used non-traditional colors but I like the way Pretty Peacock and Real Red meld together.  Background is Woven Threads DSP; oval is 2019 in color DSP.  I used oval and rectangle dies.  Stamped houses, trees and hearts, cut them out and popped them up on pop dots.  Very simple!!

Spooky harvest

1C03A66A-6246-439D-8817-FDD763AF9BD6I created a spooky little scene using the truck and pumpkins from Ride with Me.  I paired it with one of the trees from the Snow Front set.  Both are in the upcoming SU! holiday catty.  I gave the whole thing a distressed look by sponging black and orange ink on the edges and then using the spritzer tool with a black marker, gave it a few splotches of ink…  Hope you like!!!

Super teacher

I had this design rambling around in my head as I tried falling asleep last night…  I combined the new set called Harvest Hellos – in the upcoming holiday catalog- and and older set called Everyday Hero.  I loved making the blackboard using the rectangles dies and stamping in whisper white ink on the black cardstock to look like chalk.  The apple has a coordinating punch, which I love!!!  Hope you like the card!!E483637D-CC28-452B-A0AB-A377AEFE595E

Cabin retreat

C9FB732F-AF94-4C95-87DB-03CB4A5B1F58I couldn’t wait to ink up this little cabin set called Snow Front in the upcoming SU! holiday catalog.  I used tip top taupe cardstock as the base and layered the mountains in light to dark browns.  I popped the cabin up on a pop dot.  Trees are in early espresso ink and bird is on a mini pop dot.  The sentiment is from an older set called Hanging Garden.  I hope you like it!!

Braver, stronger, smarter…

C25968B3-2D10-4FBA-AF85-53BC94949141This sentiment from the SU! set called Rustic Retreat can stand alone.  I layered it on cardstock die cut using the stitched lace dies.  The flowers are made with the bitty blooms punches.  Very simple but classy card…

Open windows

This little dog loves the wind in his face!!  I combined the new SU! Ride With Me set and the dog from the You Always Deliver set.  I love it!!  Card is pretty self-explanatory…13523132-2970-41C6-BFA1-B77CBF065633

Check this out!!!

32113545-70C5-44C2-9871-E92CE169B3DAHow adorable is this card??!!  I love the images and how quick and easy it all went together.  This is a new SU! set called Check You Out.  I paired it with the background stamp from a couple of years ago called writing notes.  I adhered all to a balmy blue card base.  Threw on a little library clip from years past for good measure.  This just reminds me of how much of a bookworm I was and loved to go to the library.  I hope you like the card, too!

Family Ties and Treasures

I’m very excited to announce that my cards will now be available in a store in Prairie Home, Missouri!  This new store, Family Ties and Treasures, is right across from the café and next to hair salon.  It has a great mix of antiques and will feature local crafters as well.  It will start out being open Fridays, Saturdays and after church on Sundays (evenings as needed).  There’s a room in the back for social events and Kimberly will sell coffee and cookies.  I hope I can also hold cardmaking classes there as well!

So, local friends, please stop by if you’re in the area and check it out!  I’m still selling my cards through this website and my animal and pet sympathy cards at Rolling Hills Vet Hospital. 67152111_622283881627642_9005812624549478400_n.jpg
