Thoughtful Branches Sponge Card

I recently shared this card in a previous video introducing the Thoughtful Branches Limited Bundle, but now I have a video showing you how it’s done! This is my first video! It took me a while to get one done because I had to learn how to edit and not drag on too long. My biggest obstacle was the lighting, the best light is natural light and I it was hard for me to schedule time when the light was good.
Well here’s a list of all products I used and and all the dimensions/cutting sizes to make this card.

Card Stock:
  • Old Olive cut at 5-1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4-1/4
  • Basic Black cut at 5-1/4 x 4
  • Whisper White (2 pieces) cut at 5 x 3-3/4
  • Whisper White cut at 3×3 for Tree Top
  • Early Espresso cut at 3×3 for Tree Branches

Foxy Friends Technique Card

I held my monthly Technique Class this past Saturday and I taught my stampers how to use templates for sponging clouds, hills and mounds. We used the Foxy Friends stamp set and here is the finished card.

I also made another sample (unfinished) and popped up the fox’s head at an angle, I kind of like it!


Maybe this should be my first video tutorial, what do you think?

Love Bug Work of Art!

I’ve been dying to work with the “Beautiful Ride” stamp set from the 2016 Occasions Catalog but never got around to it. Then I recently watched a video from Stamping School which showed a cute layout but I didn’t have all the materials so I improvised using a simpler layout I found on Pintrest from Brian King. Combining the two ideas with simple but colorful Designer Series Paper I came up with this card.


I used a piece of Window Sheet for the windows as Linda Heller did in her video but I added Wink of Stella and it gave it a wet look…I kind of like it!

I think it’s a great simple card so I’m going to use this layout and embellish it a little for an anniversary card I’m going to give to my husband. I’ll post it as soon as I’m done. Below are the products I used to make this card.

Side Step Technique Class

I haven’t done a Side Step Card in a very long time and thought it was time to teach this technique again. I had 9 wonderful ladies show up for my class this morning. They all made 3 cards each, Halloween, Fall & Christmas, I just wanted to show how versatile this card type can be. Basically you need to let your imagination run wild with this one and you can make some pretty awesome cards! Here are the cards they made.


Now up close and personal!
