A different cowgirl

It is Friday yet again! Today I am here with my final DT project for Kinda Cute. Patricia has decided to close her digi shop down and so the design team has disbanded.

I printed this cute cowgirl mermaid on toned tan paper and colored it with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I used my color swatch book for the inspiration for colors I used on that image. Once it was completed, I cut it down to A2 notecard size and glued it onto the front of a notecard.

I completed the card with a sentiment die cut from Altenew which I backed in green cardstock to made the mermaid's jacket and hat.

Magical Deer

Hello Blogland! I am back with two projects that I created with the Magical Deer die set from the new Spellbinders Winter Tales release. This is a lovely deer with a Nordic design. I opted to go with magical colors in keeping with the name of the die set.

Christmas Flourish

I am back here with a new card to show you. This is another invitation from Spellbinders to participate in a new collection and this time I am working with the Merry Flourish from the Christmas Flourish collection by Becca Feeken. This one is an elegant design.

Nordic Ornaments

I am excited to have been invited to participate in a few collections of the September release at Spellbinders and so here I am with the Nordic Ornaments from the Winter Tales collection.

Some Stamping

I am back again with another project for Spellbinders and the last one showcasing the August 2022 release. This time I did some stamping using stamps from the Gnome for Christmas collection. As you know, stamping is not something I do a lot of, so here we go.

Spring and Fall

I am here today with another design that I created for Spellbinders on an invitation they sent me to create with a new release. This one is from the Seasonal Label Motifs collection and I received the Spring Label Motif die set to create with.

The Birdhouse

It is Friday again and so here I am with a delayed project that I was wanting to post last week. But last week flew by without me getting it completed. This is my DT project for August for Kinda Cute and I used one of Patricia's sweet houses from the Bird Houses Digital Stamp Set.

Interactive guys

Wow, it is Friday again. Am I the only one who does not know where the time goes? I am here today with two cards, still from the new Spellbinders release which they graciously asked me to create with. The first one is from the Tinsel Time release and the second one from Gnome for the Holidays.

Birthday Express

I am back again today with another train card using the Holiday Express die set from the new Tinsel Time release by Spellbinders. Today I want to show that the die set works really well for other occasions too.

Holiday Express

I am thrilled to be back again with some more guest designing for Spellbinders with the new Tinsel Time collection and today I have the cutest little train card to show you. Steam engines have such an old world charm and I was so pleased when I received this one to make some projects with.

Doggy Cards

Today is Friday and I am here with two cards. I had recently purchased a die set that allows one to make different dog breeds and so I had a play and made some dogs. Here are two cards I made with the dogs that I made with the die set.

Window Inspiration

Today I am posting a project I made to join in the Altenew Monthly challenge as the inspiration picture really spoke to me this month. I have added it to the blog post so you can see the starting point of this project. I decided to go with a window on my card as this was the point that I found inspiring.

A Green Lizard

I was chatting to a friend and we both agreed that the weeks seem to fly by at top speed. And here we are, Friday again! And time for me to share another blog post with you. Today I have my monthly DT project for Kinda Cute and I opted to use the digi called Valentine's Lizard, but make an encouragement card.

More Stitching

Happy Friday, it is almost weekend again. Here I am with another stitching project, but this time a background die that I have used as the focal point.

The letter A

It is Friday again and so time for a blog post from me. Today I am going to show you the first card in a series. I am making a card to a characteristic for each letter of the alphabet and using the Spellbinders Stitched Alphabet dies.

Colored teacups

I am back today with a project that has a focal point colored with my pencils. I love this image from The Paper Shelter and so decided it was time to color it up.

A Die and a Digi

Hello again! Another week has gone by since I last posted on my blog and this time I have combined two of my favorite cardmaking techniques - coloring and die cutting. I am showing off a project for Kinda Cute, the digi in this equation, as well as one of Spellbinder's die set releases.

More magnolias

Today is my final post of a week of Spellbinders dies. I made a different card with the same Magnolia Blooms die that I had used in my previous post. This time the flowers are the focal image rather than the background.

Pick a characteristic

I am on Day 3 of my Spellbinders posts and today I have another project using dies from the new Birthday Celebration collection. I decided it was time to make hubby a card again, he has been on the short end of the recipient list for a while now.

Magnolia background

It is Hump Day and I want to show you my second card using Spellbinders products as they celebrate their 20th birthday. I made this card for a friend who is going through a rough time.

Birthday Celebration at Spellbinders

Today I am here with some exciting news. I was contacted by Spellbinders to ask if I would like to participate in their new June release called Birthday Celebration Collection. They sent me some dies to play with from the new collection and here is my first project.

Birthday Flowers

Hello friends, today I have another card to show you that I made with one of the backgrounds that was a result of my play with Distress Oxide Inks a while ago in, which I tried different background inking techniques.


It is Friday again and today I am here to show you my project for the challenge between myself and BożenA. I chose the theme for this one and with all that the world is going through, I felt a good topic would be "Hope" - what inspires us with hope. I really did not know myself at the time how I was going to depict that.

A 1 layer card panel

Hello Blogland! Today I am showing another DT project for Kinda Cute and this time I am using the Balloons digi set. I decided to use the dog balloon, but the others are also so cute. The background is a paper from Patricia's Coral Easter paper set.

Oxide Ink Backgrounds

Today I am showing two cards that I made after a time of experimenting with the smooshing technique with Distress Oxide inks. I have wanted to try this in more detail for a while and now that I have a crafty space that is not the dining room table, I started a session.

A card with gold foil

Today I am here with not only a blog post, but also my very first attempt at a video of my process. I wanted to make an Easter card for each of the families in our small congregation and so opted for gold foil and white. I think this is a very elegant look.

What a cute hedgehog

It is Friday again and I am here to show you my April DT project for Kinda Cute by Patricia. This is a mixed media card, using pencils, inks, foil and creating texture with embossing.

Progressive challenge

Today I am back with another card and today I am participating in the Kinda Cute Progressive Challenge. The image this month is this cute little guy doing exercises.

Digital stamps and foil

Today I have a DT project to show you for Kinda Cute. I did one of my favorite techniques here, which is combining digital papers with a hand colored focal point. Patricia created the sweet digi, the background papers that I used and the sentiment.

Monochrome with a pop of color

Hello Blogland. Today I am here with my project for the challenge between BożenA and myself. She has had such patience with me during my time of loss of mojo, move and whatever else. But here we are.

Sweet Note

Good morning from a chilly Arizona. I have a project to show you today. I am excited to tell you that I am one of the new Design Team members for Kinda Cute and this is my first project.

Some exciting news

It has been a long time since I last posted here on my blog and I sure have missed it. I wanted to share my make for the Kinda Cute Progressive Challenge, which fortunately for me, extended for December and January.
