I have been papercrafting for over 10 years now. I love Stamping, Scrapbooking, Altered Items, and basically ALL Papercrafts. By day, I work at a pharmaceutical company where I design and contribute to packaging drugs. On the side, I am also a coach for Fun Stampers Journey and I love to stamp into the wee hours of the night.

Heavy Hearts Today!

Our beloved dog Doogie passed away today. Doogie was the best dog. He lived a great and fun life. Some of our best memories of him will be the time we dressed him up for Halloween or the White Sox Games (where he got put on ESPN) or his dog show days or just running around the back yard with him. He will be greatly missed!

Yesterday was fun!

I had a lot of fun yesterday making cards for World Card Making Day!

Today I continue with a few more. What could be better than World Card Making WEEKEND!!!


This is for another Just Johanna challenge. It was a sketch that you needed to use to make a birthday card.


This was the Sketch ....





And this was my version of it!



I used some scraps of my Doodlebug birthday paper and my Doodlebug Birthday Stamps. I really like how it turned out. Simple and Fun!


This is for another Just Johanna challenge. It was a challenge to use Paper Piecing ... well anyone that know me knows that I LOVE to paper piece. So to step up to the challenge even more I took a very challenging stamp and paper pieced it!




The stamp is by Imaginations! It is called Spring Sampler. I stamped the image on white, blue, purple, pink, yellow, green, tan, and a shimmery vellum. Then the fun begins!!! You cut out pieces of each in the colors that you want. For example the background to the bee was cut from blue and then the body was cut from yellow and then the wings were cut from the shiny vellum. You then adhere all of them on top of each other on the white. It takes a while but the end result is AMAZING! There were some spots that were too hard to paper piece so I used my Prisma alcohol markers. Thanks for the challenge!

This is for another Just Johanna challenge. It was a challenge to use another sketch.

This was the Sketch ....


And this was my version of it!

I just got this great new set from TAC called Spooktacular. I colored the image using my water color crayons. The background paper is from TACs Simply Spooky paper collection. I added some dimension to the circles by putting orange brands through them.



This is for another Just Johanna challenge. It was a challenge to use Color Blocking on your card.




I used TAC's Enjoy Today set and TAC's Finger Paint Paper for my color blocking. The paper worked well since they are designed to coordinate with each other. I colored the image with watercolor crayons.


This is for another Just Johanna challenge. It was a challenge to use a slide mount on your card.


I covered the slide mount with sage green paper and then stamped on it with polka dots. The flower image is from TAC's Beautiful Place set. I colored it with water color crayons. The sentiment is from TAC's Little Tidbit set. To add the final touch to the card I tied ribbon around the slide mount and around the main image. The background paper is from TAC's Country Cottage paper collection.

This is for another Just Johanna challenge. It was a challenge to use an unususal fold on your card.

For this card I did a take on a gate fold card for the Fall. I used TAC's Charcoal Leaves stamp set for this project. The "Fall" was stamped using Simple Bet. and the interior saying came from TAC's All Things of Nature set. I used Palette Cognac, Burnt Umber, and Burnt Sienna as the inks. The scallop squares were cuttle on my Big Shot with a cuttlebug die. These closure tabs were pop-dotted for an extra 3D effect.

Happy World Card Making Day!



Here is my entry for Kim's Just Johanna Contest.




I call it my "Aquafina Card". For this challenge we were to recycle some materials on our card. I used the packaging from my Aquafina Water. The "U" was die cut from the corrugated case that the bottles come in using my Sizzix. The strip along the bottom was also made from the corrugated case. The tag is made out of the plastic Aquafina water bottle and I die cut that on my Sizzix as well. It was hard to see the tag so I used Alcohol inks on it to color it and then stamped "Friend" using White StazOn ink. The tag was tied to the card using Scrapper's Floss.
The "Thank" was stamped using the TAC Simple Bet alphabet.


Here is my entry for Kerry's Just Johanna Contest.


Kerry's challenge was to use the elements: Water, Fire, Air, Land (earth) on your card. This was a little challenging for me but i decided to depict this with the colors of cardstock. Blue Water (cuttlebugged), Red Fire, Tan Land, and the swirls that are stamped for air. I love the Hoppy Everything set from TAC. I seem to go to it for a lot of ideas and inspiration. The frog is pop-dotted to give the illusion that he is "hopping". I used the Swirl from TAC's Spring Dream set.


Here is my entry for Angie's Contest.





It is a pop-up halloween Card using the new Trick or Treaters stamp set from TAC's Fall Supplement. It is a pop-up card that I learned how to make from Hero Arts on my MOA trip last month. I stamped the skeleton on white glossy paper with Versamark and then let him dry. After a while you then brayer him with black ink. When he is opened and pops up the card says Trick or Treat.
