Pet Sympathy

Sadly I needed a few of these. Having lost some furry family members myself I know this is so heartbreaking.


A Birthday Rose

A Rose from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! I chose “birthday” mostly because I need to restock my birthday card stash. This can easily switched for Valentine’s, Sympathy, Thinking of You- just about any sentiment works. So versatile!

The background stencil is called “bricked” and is from Tim Holtz. (available at Stamp Simply as well as others). Its’ the easiest stencil ever. Know why? You don’t need even coverage when you are applying the ink. The distress oxide is black soot, but I went sure light so it was gray.

The roses are colored with Copics in a few shades of pink. an you all know I love pink!!!


Farmhouse Faux Shiplap

I absolutely LOVE all things Modern Farmhouse and Industrial Farmhouse. I recently remodeled my kitchen in this “style”.

Today’s card is no exception. Shiplap and Farmhouse Signage from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store are the perfect combination.

The shiplap technique is not mine. It’s from Dawn at Craft Away with Me. Here is her video, Oh M Gee… I love this technique. Wide shiplap, skinny shiplap- all the shiplap! So easy and so much fun.

There are soooooo many fun images in the Farmhouse collection to coordinate. I see lots of note cards in my future.


Floral Cluster Sympathy

Sympathy cards are always needed in your card stash. You just never know. This is the Sping pansies floral cluster stamp set and matching dies from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

The sympathy sentiment is also from the Stamp Simply Ribbon store. Its Sympathy Sentiments set 1. A great one for your collection. That brick wall paper was a hidden find in the Kaisercraft Starry Night Paper pack. I love when a Christmas pack of paper has a few sheets that can be used any time of the year.

The pansies are colored with copics and mounted on the card along the edge of the circle die cut. Simple and elegant.

Don’t forget reduced shipping at Stamp Simply in January!

Berry Special!

Today is a berry special day! Not really… I just like the play on words in this fun Fruit set and coordinating sentiments from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

The berries are colored with a few shades of pink copic markers and then I cut each out. Each one is popped up on foam squares.

I added some coordinating washi tape from my stash and a thin strip of black cardstock. I absolutely love the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store’s slogan: Keep it simple, make it pretty. Thats exactly what I did.

Blooms & Berries Bouquet

This one is FABULOUS…and from The Stamp Market.

I am sharing both generic and holiday cards. Depending on your color choices this one can be stretched throughout the whole year!

It’s a lot of coloring so I did it in 2 steps.

See how changing the colors and completely change the look.

I went for red rosesand quickly learned I definitely need to improve on my red flower coloring.

Added bonus: This stamp is super forgiving if you are not good at coloring.

I cant wait to gold heat emboss this as well as watercolor it. stay tuned!

My Main Squeeze

Happy New Year stampin’ friends! I’m back from a few weeks off from crafting. Spent some time with my family enjoying the holidays.

Today card is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store‘s Fruit set and the coordinating Fruit sentiment set.

I love how this can be an anniversary card or a non traditional valentine depending on what you stamp inside the card.

The lemons are colored with copics. I added some simple black splatter and gold sequins as accents.

Discounted shipping is still available!

Over the holidays, my stamp room got new floors, new lights and a paint job (still in progress). Pictures coming when its all done!
