Thinking of You…


When I think of fairies I automatically think of sheer colorful wings.  And when I think of sheer and colorful, I think of all the beautiful colors of Vellum available at the Paper Temptress!!!! I LOVE it!!  It adds a classy look when added to a formal invitation or when torn, like […]

Winter in Iowa…

Hi again everyone!! Tina here!!   Today I am sharing a “wintery” card because, sadly, I jinxed things here in good ol Des Moines, IA.  Yup… it snowed yesterday and it’s all because I made the comment the day before about how 99% of all the snow we had on the ground was […]

Happy Friends…


 Hi everyone, Tina here!

It’s the New Year and I couldn’t help but think of new babies, new friends and new clean/fresh starts!!  Today I am sharing an adorable Magnolia image , “Baby Tilda”, with you that reminded me of Baby New Year but also how Spring is so badly hoped […]

A Simple Blessing


My little image sits on top of  Wild Dandelion card stock base.  I layered up some Wild Lilac and then topped it off with some Yellow Crepe Ruche paper from the Paper Temptress (LOVE that texture). And… the nice part about that Ruche paper… you can stamp directly on it and your […]

Silver & Gold Embossed


Today I had a HUGE itch to design some Christmas cards using silver and gold embossing powders.  I only got two done but that happens when you have a full schedule of picking up kids… it’s raining out and cold so it seems to be a rush to get a parking spot […]

Never Enough…

Second, I fell in love with […]

It’s What’s on the Inside that Counts *wink*

So, let’s start there, shall we??? I designed the inside of my card with Solar White Classic Column paper.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this finishes off the inside of a card.

And look… the columns don’t interfere with the stamped image!!  You stamp and it’s like stamping on smooth non-textured paper!!

Rustic Note

I couldn’t resist doing a rustic card when I grabbed Patricia’s Colored Brown Bag Kraft paper.  I used the Olive Brown Bag and began by crumpling it up in my hand.  I then straightened it out and took a sanding block and rubbed lightly over it until I got some of the brown bag […]

Queen Prissy

I cannot tell you how excited I was when Theresa Momber asked me to design for her newest set, “Purrr-fectly Delightful”!!! I had just bought my daughter a new kitty for Christmas and I just KNEW I would love using this set to create with AND to scrap book with as I’m sure we […]

Clean and Simple with a Shimmer

Today I was looking at Theresa Momber’s newest set, “Purr-fectly Delightful” and decided I wanted to color the flowers in but do a very simple card that would just focus on them.

I used my Copics and went for soft but a bit of brightness to them. I highlighted […]
