I am thrilled to be participating in this fun hop with so many talented designers! I made a few cards and a video.  

In the video I show how I made this lavender card and the design process for all three.If you are new to my videos, I show how to craft with diminished strength and hand issues. I use and try a lot of products and tools. The MISTI was a game changer for me!




These are the cards I made. Be sure to check out the great selection of top quality Gina K cardstock and matching inks.

I used the Gina K Designs Boho Flowers Mini Kit, Grand Greetings, Pure Luxury cardstock and Rounded Swirl stencil. I stamped with both the Original MISTI Laser Etched & the Mini MISTI Laser Etched.

Next in the hop is Jeanne Streiff. For more inspiration here is the whole list is:

Fantasy Fun

I am hosting the Modsquad Challenge this week. The theme is Fantasy. I started making a few quick backgrounds using brushos. Color Burst will work just as well. I simply sprinkled some powder in the center and spritzed. The green is 1 color Olive!

When dry I stamped Lavinia Stamps - Fairy Mystical - Moments Like These.  I had to stamp several times and fill in with a Memento marker because I used the rough side of Tim Holtz watercolor paper.

 I added Gina Marie Designs - Scalloped Stitched Nested Rectangles Dies. Gina Marie dies cut great! I then mounted on a test cut from my stash of 2 flower border edges. Any edge die would work. This is a display piece not a card.

Stick Together - Strawberry Jude


Hi, today I am showcasing the new Strawberry Jude's August Release of "Mallow Layers"

This card was really easy to make. I will include links for the Multi step marshmallows video and the background I used from my stash. The background center piece was done with Distress inks dripped on a Gelli Press and brayered.

To frame the marshmallows I used an oval decorative die from my stash by Hot Off The Press. I matted with heavy cardstock from Gina K Designs. The sentiment was cut using a MFT Dynamics banner die.

​Please check out my previous video to see how I stamped the marsmallows

Cheer Up - Strawberry Jude Stamps

Hi,  today I am showcasing the new Strawberry Jude's August Release of "Mallow Layers"
Whether you like your marshmallows lightly roasted or burnt, it's up to you! You can get a variety of looks by changing up inks used. Or you can draw a face like I did LOL. These stamps are really easy to line up! You can see how to use this set in this video. I also make a night sky using Gelatos.

I drew and colored the flames in a graphic editor and printed it. I demonstrate the stamping, sky and assembly in the video. Hope you enjoy!

Autumn Thanks

Today I am showing an Autumn thank you card. I simply colored with some shimmery metallic paints. I used the gold set from Gansi Kuretake.



This is what the diecut looks like. I cut them embossed. You can't see the embossing in the photo.


All I did was paint with all the shades of gold metallic Gansai Kuretake paints I had. I wet the paint a little, not to runny. This is regular cardstock but it is heavy 80# from Gina K. It holds up fine if not too wet. The sentiment was heat embossed with gold.

Friendship

Hi, Joyce here today with an easy and sunny card for a friend. The background came from my stash and was done using Brusho crystals, I thought the bottom being mostly yellow was perfect for this card. I cut the Impression Obsession - Dies - Sunflower Background  frame out in white then colored it. I used a black Copic marker for the thin frame and a yellow Zig Real Brush Real Color marker.

I glued the frame backround to my background then adhered to a yellow card base. I cut the
Lawn Fawn - Scripty Friends Die out from some heavy Gina K Designs Black Onyx cardstock and adhered.
