Gorgeous Grunge Butterfly gift cards


I'm making 3 x 3 cards, trying to use up discontinued SU! In color DSP and ink. I think they are pretty darned cute. I was inspired by this beauty, I just sized it down for my purposes.


Here is a close up. I stamped on the card front with SU! Gorgeous Grunge paint splatter in the ink and then instantly stamped again for two tones of the same color. Then I used the smaller splatter stamp and some gold ink. Thirdly I took a separate 3 x 3 piece of card stock and die cut the butterfly shape and stamped the sentiment from SU! Cottage Greetings. I created the 3 x 3 envelope with the SU! Envelope Punch Board using DSP stack papers. I'm making little sets of four as gifts for my Stamp-A-Stack class attendees.

Graduation card



This was a creation for a sketch challenge. I was really inspired by the design. I was going for a masculine graduation card, do you thing the silver glitter is too much? Or does it work?

More polka dot birthday cards


I started making this design here, and just couldn't stop. They are so easy and I think they are adorable. 




More color combinations and experimenting with different embellishments.




Love the flicks of Wink of Stella Gold, simple touches to add a little oomph.

Case'd Easter butterfly cards



Once again I cased a beautiful idea I found on Pinterest. Oh thank heavens for all you very talented people who inspire me, because my brain just doesn't work that way. I can copy or case like nobodies business. I usually try to tweak a great design a bit to make it my own, but for the most part, I really need the help with a jumping off point. 



This idea is gorgeous. As soon as I saw it I could puzzle through how to recreate it, although I didn't really need to because the original creator was nice enough to make a video and show her process. That's even more amazing to me. Love it. 



But my brain never would have come up with this wonderful idea all on its own. So thank you again to all you wonderfully creative people for sharing your talent so generously. I really do appreciate it.

I used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Old Olive SU! inks and card stocks and SU! Gorgeous Grunge stamps and butterfly die to recreate these beauties for myself.

Thank you sets of cards



I am so in love with the stamp set from the February 2016 SU! Paper Pumpkin kit. So simple to make beautiful cards with these stamps. So that's what I did, made tons and tons of cards. Fashioned after this beautiful creation I found on Pinterest. I added some flicks of gold Wink of Stella and a little border of coordinating card stock and finished off the set with matching decorated envelopes. 



I used all 5 sentiments included in the stamp set. Actually I used every single stamp in the set. Fun!!!

The blue inks are Pool Party, Lost Lagoon and Night of Navy with Pear Pizzaz as the green on all the sets. 



Just look at those sentiments. So pretty. These stamps just make it too easy.



The purple inks are Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant and Blackberry Bliss. 



Hello sunshine! You make me so happy. 


These pink inks are Pink Pirouette, Watermelon Wonder and Calypso Coral.

A card to celebrate an engagement


My oldest son proposed to his wonderful girlfriend. We couldn't be happier.  So excited to have her be a permanent part of our family.  I'll finally have a daughter. I made this card to give to them, to tell them just how happy we are to celebrate the beginning of a long and happy life together.
