For the Birthday Girl

Splitcoaststampers TLC477, Stamping Bella Poppies

Hi folks! Are you having a good day?  I hope you are.

I had a birthday card to make and couldn’t decide what to do that was unique, so when I saw this card from my blogging friend, Viv, I knew that was the style of card I wanted to make.  As you can see, I was inspired by the way Viv added some ribbon, so I did the same.

I found the directions for the Center Step card on Splitcoaststampers.   There is a step-by-step tutorial as well as a video tutorial.

This card is also for this week’s technique challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  The challenge is to add dots and the technique is called Pointilism.

My Stamping Bella image was coloured with Copics.  My designer paper is an old 6 x 6 pad from BasicGrey.  I’m a designer paper junkie, are you?

Elegant Peony


It’s my first day of two weeks holiday, and I buried myself in the studio all day.  This card was made for Splitcoast Stampers Colour Challenge:  Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss and Elegant Eggplant.  Having run out of Kiwi Kiss, I substituted with Old Olive.

The peony flower was stamped out four times onto watercolour paper, turned over and then watercoloured with Tombow and Stampin’ Up markers.  The decorative rectangle is from SU, and the decorative corners are CB.  Ribbon is from Michaels.

I attended a scrapbook workshop last night over at Stephanie’s house.  Haven’t scrapbooked in over a year and it was so much fun to get back into it, and meeting stampers and scrapbookers in the area.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day!

Go Confidentally in the Direction of Your Dreams


Hi Folks!

Today’s challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is to CASE Teresa–va.sunshine’s gallery.   I decided to case va.sunshine’s, “Peace.”

In CASEing Teresa’s project, I changed the shape of the panels and did a summer theme instead of a Christmas theme.  I loved how she tied her ribbon so I did the same.

Thank you for stopping by.  Hope you have a fabulous week ahead!
