It’s time to say…


To create the background: dab salty ocean and tumbled glass on Honeycomb embossing folder. Spritz it with water. Emboss a watercolor cardstock using the embossing folder.

Clear embosssed the cuckoo clock. For the alarm clock, stamped it in black on white cardstock and then colored it with Spectrum noir markers. Stamped the sentiment on vellum using Milo’s ABC.

Western themed goodbye


The background was created by sponging barn door, pickled raspberry and dusty concord.

For the sentiment, I cut it out using Zing and then double embossed it in clear embossing powder. Stamped the moon in white pigment ink and went over it with white gel pen. Stamped the cowboy in black and the cactii in walnut stain. Tore same random strips from brown cardstock to create the desert.

Thank you card


To create the background: I sponged the card with Antique Linen first. Then stamped music background with Antique Linen and finally sponged around the edges with Walnut Stain.

Stamped the thank you on brown cardstock and embossed it in gold embossing powder. Distressed the edges using a ruler. Punched a hole and put in an eyelet.

Flip it card



I’ve been seeing a lot of flip-it cards so decided to give them a try. It was so much fun making this card and I love how it came out. In fact I want to make more of these flip-its. Probably with different shapes flipping.
