love always


Hey! I'm not quite back to crafting just yet (still catching up on the business side of running a stamp company after the holidays) but I did manage to make this card using one of my illustrations that I turned into a digital stamp and am offering as a free download. (This digi will eventually be available as a clear stamp.) It's for the Hey, Love Blog Hop and Linky Party we're hosting over at the STAMPlorations blog.


The STAMPlorations girls and I are sharing love-themed projects and we'd love for you to join in by linking up yours! There are over $150 worth of prizes up for grabs + you can download 3 new love/spring themed digital stamps and use them in projects.


For my card, I used the Framed Love Always digital stamp. Printed it on mixed media paper and used Inktense pencils to color. Let it dry, cut it out, and mounted it on my card base and it's done. Pretty quick and easy :o)

I hope you'll join us and create your own love-themed projects -- all types of projects are welcome, as long as they follow the theme: LOVE. (Non-STAMPlorations products are okay as well, but if you do use our products, you get a shot at the bigger prizes.)

Commenting and linking up ends on February 8 so plenty of time to hop and create projects.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)

live what you love



Here's to remind you that there's still a week left in the current challenge at Time Out Challenges. This time around, the challenge is to be LOVING.


It's good to create something again after several weeks of not crafting! I thought I'd do a test drive on one of the new ARTplorations stencils that will be in the store by next week. I used Gorgeous, one of several stencils in my Faces series to create my one layer card. Stenciled her right in the middle of my card base and her left side gave me enough room to stamp the doodled flowers in bright, bold colors. Stamped the sentiment (from the new It's A Girl Thing: Sunshine set) and then finished off with a grungy border for some faux texture.

Playing in these fab challenges:

life is good


Sharing a one layer card I made with the help of my gel press plate for the current Time Out Challenges. I describe how I made the card in this post at the STAMPlorations blog. Plus I have an extra prize up for grabs for those who answer a simple question in the post. :o)

best day ever


I've got a new card featuring a technique I'm calling negative stamping. I explain this technique in this post at the STAMPlorations blog :o)

merry Christmas



Here's to remind you that there's still a week left in the current challenge at Time Out Challenges. This time around, the challenge is to be JOYFUL.


If you're still making Christmas cards, the challenge is easy peasy...after all, Christmas is a joyful event! For my one layer Christmas card, I used a mask (one of at least 16 new ARTplorations masks that will be available in January under my Bloomdala Bliss series). The mask looks like it could pass for a poinsettia so I placed it over my card base and sponged red and green inks -- I didn't try to do a smooth blending through the mask, as I wanted to get a rustic/rough look instead. I combined this stamp with this stamp to form my joyful sentiment and then finished the card by stamping the grunge dotted border all around.

I hope you'll come play with us and take time out to craft! 

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
