New Beginnings

The HC Butterfly die inspired me to make this card – I just purchased the die and love it! All paper and glitter are GK. White for the base card, and Sweet Corn the top later with glittered white on the top layer. Glitter is a mix of GK all mixed together – just had small amounts of several colors so mixed together. Could not get a good picture – is very sparkly and I am happy with it!


I would like to thank all of you for encouraging me the last 2 years! I truly appreciate all your support! Hopefully I am now on the road to a full recovery and can enjoy everyday!

Birthday Card

Thanks to Bonnie for sending the Desert Image, resized and printed. Brushed a very light distressed ink in the background. Used GK white card stock base, sentiment is from My Anchors Mini Kit (GK). Very simple card.

Birthday Card for Guys

This card started with fall brusho colors sprinkled on white GK card stock, spritzed with water. Didn’t like at all so thought – “what would Bonnie do.” I then took a stencil and smeared GK transfer gel over portions of the paper. When dry rubbed with various fall colors of ink. Mounted on Faded brick base with sticky tape. The image from GK Simply Vintage was stamped in Black Altenew ink on GK Fresh Asparagus along with the GK sentiment From My Anchor Mini Kit. The black frame was cut from GK black card stock with Altenew Rounded Rectangles set. Just a simple guy card.

Christmas card, Style #1

This is style #1 of my Christmas cards. Base card is GK paper, the rest is Heartfelt Creations. The card is covered with chunky glitter and really sparkles. I have 10 of these made, all a little different, but the basic concept is the pinecone which is die cut and dimensional. Fun making the poinsettias with the mold press.



Birthday Card

Two cards in one day! This one is for my Granddaughter Sophia. I die cut her name from Altenew paper with the Altenew Fine Alphabetically Dies, 3 times, glued with Connect Glue to show colors. The balloons are from Technique Tuesday Umpteenth Birthday, stamped in Black and colored with SN Shimmer Markers. As she loves bling add quite a bit which is from Pink and Main kit.

Birthday Card for Special Friend

I’m slowly getting back to card making! All paper is GK unless I specify something else. Most of the stamps are also, just starting to add others.

The die is Altenew Ornate Cover Die on Turquoise Sea card base. Image is GK I heat embossed in white sometime ago! Colored with Prisma pencils and Gamsol. Birthday Wish are on inside.

Birthday Card

Happy Birthday

Going to try to post a card, been so long not sure I remember.

Used white GK card stock and technique shown by Karen and Cat called ink dragging. Card stock is Stone, ink Slate and sentiment from Grand Greetings. Very simple.

Gold Glitter Easter Card

Used Gold Glitter Gel on sunrise stencil. Using brushes with Oxide inks, swiped out from corner. Ran a baby wipe over gel to clean off ink, the gel holds the glitter – none on the baby wipe. Sentiment is from Springtime Baskets – Claire’s Set – on vellum in Stormy Sky ink, mounted on a scrap of card stock colored with oxide ink.
