February with Udderly Wonderful and Mix-ins

 Just couldn't let February end without sharing what I did with the

Udderly Wonderful stamps (C1922) and Mix-ins (X9036) 

from the January-February catalog.  

I took the design for the tag card and the one on the easel

from the catalog.  The other two were inspired by another consultant.

I used various methods to color the cow.

The top two used watercolor pencils with Intense Black ink.
The bottom two used Tri-blend markers that we carry with Intense Black ink.
That ink does not smudge or run when you get it wet!.
IF YOU LIKE THE STAMPS, they will still be available after the end of
February.  The Thin Cuts have sold out.   The images are super easy to
cut out so don't deprive yourself of this fun set.
You will save a little on the cost and still have lots of fun with the lovely cow
and her "sides."
  They bring a smile to everyone who sees them.
Here's the whole set--  C1922--Udderly Wonderful  for $14.95

November with Candid Moments and the Stamp of the Month

November is almost gone and I didn't post

my projects for this month!  

I used the Candid Moments papers and the 

Stamp of the Month, Created to Shine

The theme of these stamps and being the light

is especially meaningful to me.  I love the corner card that you could have on your desk as a reminder to 

"Let YOUR light shine!

The world needs that goodness!


You can get the stamp of the month for $5 with a $50 order or it can be FREE with a $50 order if you are a VIP.

More about being a VIP?  Just ask me at and I will be happy to tell you!

July Stamp of the Month-Strong Roots

I am creating in July using the July Stamp of the Month
Strong Roots.
You may purchase Strong Roots outright for $18.95, get it for $5.00 when you order $50 in products -or_ when you are a VIP you get it FREE with a $50 order!
Here are the designs I used to bring this stamp set to life.
The item on the easel is a little album made with 4 x 4 Flip Flaps.

Then inside the cards:

See how the insides of the cards all featured stamps from this set?
I chose papers from the Wood Grain Paper Packet  X8017
paired with Sage and Sangria cardstock and colored in with Tri-Blend Markers
to compliment the designs.  Paper piecing was employed to accent the door in
the door stamp.  Note, when using the Tri-Blend markers , you need to stamp 
and color them on a separate piece of cardstock then cut them out and glue to your card because 
the markers will bleed through the card base.
My policy is to send you a card you can use for every $25 in product that you order on my website:
You may contact me through my email at if you have any questions
