A Novel Birthday + Friday Feature at BRI


Hey friends, happy Friday! This week I happened to need TWO birthday cards for friends in my writer's group, and I knew that the MFT Our Story stamp set was going to be just perfect for both!

I'm sharing the masculine version here, and the feminine version for my Friday Feature over at the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog. I did some paper-piecing with the stunningly gorgeous Flora 6x6 by Carta Bella in combination with Copic coloring, and I absolutely LOVED how it turned out, so you'll have to check it out. Here's a sneak peek to entice you over. ;) 


I didn't film a video this time because I created both of them simultaneously as I needed them quick and I knew there would be no way to edit that footage down to a reasonable length. But if you'd like a video on how I created either of these cards, let me know. Maybe I can do a separate video for each if there's interest.

I hope you all have an amazing day and a wonderful weekend!

Birthday Bunny - Copic Colored Cloudy Sky Background



Hi friends! Every year after I finish up my Valentine Card Series, I find myself in immediate need for birthday cards. This cute Lili of the Valley Balloon Bunny image is always a go-to for quick and easy (and adorable!) cards, but I wanted to step it up a notch by coloring in my own cloudy sky background with Copic markers. Of course, I had to film a video so I could share the technique with you all.

I die cut my focal panel with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die and added a sentiment using a tab from the MFT Blueprints 29 Die-namics, such a versatile die set!

Speaking of valentines, my friend Winter posted a wonderful update on the Cards From the Heart Card Drive that you'll for sure want to check out! I was smiling all day today thinking of those kids who were blessed by the drive! Such a great cause.

I hope you all have a fantastic day! Thanks for stopping by!

2017 Valentine Card Series #9


Hey crafty friends! Today I have a sweet card to share with you for Day 10 of my 2017 Valentine Series. Aren't these mice just darling? This is the Moonbeam Meadow True Love set by Crafter's Companion, and I just happened to notice while grabbing the link, that this and ALL their EZ Mount Stamp Sets are now 75% off! That, my friends, works out to $2.49 per stamp set, which is CRAZY cheap! So if you love this image as much as I do, you may want to strike while the iron's hot. ;)

I watercolored my panel with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and all colors used are listed at the top left of the screen in the video. I hope you enjoy it!

2017 Valentine Card Series #8 plus a feature at BRI!


Hey friends! It's Friday, which means it's time for my Friday Feature at the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog. I left you a sneaky peek to entice you over, but the full reveal and all supplies will be listed there. I'd love it if you leave me a comment there too!

This is also Card #8 in my 2017 Valentine Series benefitting the Cards From The Heart Card Drive and St. Jude's Children's Hospital and more. Unfortunately, if you haven't mailed your cards by now, it's probably too late (mine went out on Wednesday) unless you overnight it, as the deadline to be received was January 31st, but if you missed out, never fear! Start a stash for next year! The kids are so worth it, and each one is guaranteed to make them smile, so you can add to it all throughout the year if you want, and have a big ol' pile to send in next year. Just please visit Winter's blog for all the requirements before you begin, as the hospital has several restrictions to ensure the children's safety and happiness. 


I will be continuing this series through Valentine's Day and doing exactly that. I have a special box that is reserved for stockpiling for this Card Drive. :)

Please enjoy the video! Click on the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD and please don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe! With all the changes YouTube has made in the last few months, it's more important than ever to show your support for your favorite YouTubers so we don't get lost in the shuffle. I sure do appreciate it! You all have a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by.

2017 Valentine Card Series #7


Hi there, friends! Today I bring you Card #7 in my 2017 Valentine Series that benefits the Cards From The Heart Drive. All the cards collected will St. Jude's Children's Hospital and other children's hospitals as well. It's such an amazing cause and you still have another day left if you want to get a few cards made. I recommend mailing out by Wednesday at the latest though to assure that they arrive by the end date of January 31st, so they have time to be distributed before Valentine's Day. I wish I could be there to see the smiles on these kids faces when they open up all these thoughtful handmade cards!


My card today features the aptly named Otterly Adorable set by Mama Elephant. Aren't they just the cutest ever? I watercolored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and did a Distress Inked background for them to swim in. I hope you enjoy the video!

Click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right corner to watch it there in HD and please don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe! With all the changes YouTube has made, showing your support to your favorite channels is more important than ever. I sure do appreciate it! You all have a wonderful day!
