Fabulous Wonderful Friend


Good morning! I’m back to share a card I have made using the amazing Mini Chalkboards by SC Designs for Whimsy Stamps! I challenged myself to use every stamp in the set which wasn’t really a challenge as they are all perfect! You really can’t go wrong with buying this stamp set!

This is my fifth card using the set and I have three more stamps to go! I used Maja Design paper and some pearls. It really came together quickly!



Good afternoon! I have a card to share using a fun Mo’s Digital Pencil image and today I have colored up the beautiful, Naunet!

Tropical mermaid card using Prima and Mo's Digital Pencil Naunet digital image

I have used an old Prima paper pad, Alla Prima. The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts as well as the strung pearls. The pearls I bought a while back and didn’t know what to do with them until this card. They reminded me of bubbles, which I thought was perfect for my tropical mermaid! I dyed some seam binding with Distress Ink Evergreen Bough. I muted the Yellow Orange flowers with gesso and I think I would’ve been happier with an extra layer. My Martha Stewart punch around the page for my shell border.

I usually like more muted colors but I think the bright colors suit Naunet perfectly!
Thanks for stopping by!

Miss Chloe


Good morning! I have a fun card to share using Miss Chloe Vignette by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps
Isn’t she a beauty with her flowing hair and freckles?

I have used a tutorial from You Tube to make the Recessed Window Card base as I did a long time ago. This is a great tutorial and this style really adds a fun and unique twist to a card!
I have used the A4 paper pad of Prima’s Fairy Rhymes paper and  fussy cut the banners and flowers. The sentiment is also Whimsy: Mini Chalkboards by SC Designs (my favorite stamp set at the moment). A few mulberry flowers and pearls and voila!

Garment District Card


 Today I am sharing a card I have made using sweet Fairy Needle from Mo’s Digital Pencil.

Mo's Digital Pencil, Fairy Needle using Marion Smith's Garment District for She's Sew Crafty and Scrapbook Maven

I have used the gorgeous Garment District 6×6 papers by Marion Smith Designs! All her papers are fabulous! I did a whole lot of fussy cutting, since Marion’s papers are great for that!. Everything I embellished the card with was from the paper except for the seam binding, sentiment and wooden spool! How great is that! I did use some glitter and Frantage to add some interest, too.
