Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

My project features the adorable new Page Huggers stamp set with coordinating dies.

Mama Elephant-Page HuggersI used the Classic Stripe Cover die for the background and combined the Hello script die with a sentiment from Photo Bomb.
Mama Elephant-Page HuggersI left the critters loose so that you could remove that and use them for bookmarks.
Mama Elephant-Page HuggersEmma fell in love with the little mouse and couldn’t wait to try it out it in her Dr.Suess book.

Sunny Studio Birthday Blog Hop

Doublestick Heaven

Birthday Blog Hop-WEBHi there! Today I’m very excited to join Sunny Studio for a blog hop celebrating their 1st birthday…yay! Happy Birthday Sunny Studio!Sunny Studio-Autumn SplendorI’ve created two projects featuring the gorgeous Autumn Splendor stamp set.
Sunny Studio-Autumn SplendorThis first card shows how fun this set is for multi-step layering. I stamped each solid leaf image and then stamped the half-leaf image in a darker color. This really looks awesome and using a MISTI makes it effortless.
Sunny Studio-Autumn SplendorI die cut an oval window to add a sentiment also included in the Autumn Splendor set.

For this project I used the “highlight stamping technique” where you stamp the solid image in white first and then a second time in a darker color, a bit off set. This technique works perfectly with these solid images.

Penny Black Watercolour Garden!

Today I have a card sharing a fun image that I coloured when I was camping at the beach recently.  Somehow, when I started cutting it down it ended up smaller and on an angle…   so I added a bold design paper background to make it pop.
