Whiff of Joy Challenge: We’re Back!

Happy Friday! Well, Summer is officially over in our house. All 3 kids went back to school today and the house is QUIET. I am a little sad that the Summer break is over and that my kids are no longer hanging about but that is the way it goes. I am hoping they are all having brilliant days and I can’t wait to hear all the news about their teachers and classes.

I have been neglecting my blog….I just never get around to the computer and when I do, it is work related. So, a little late, here is my card for the newest Whiff of Joy challenge which started up again after a wee summer break.

The theme is: A shaped card. To enter the challenge and/of to see the other DT creations, go to this post ~here~.

This is the third tag in a set of three that I made to give to my boys. This particular one goes to my astute middle kid. I do the colorations for the stamp kit and rubber stamp packaging. When he saw the colorations for this one, he said that this image was so cute but so mean. Mean? He pointed out that lobsters are not red until they are cooked…….oops! So this one goes to him!

Have a great day!

More Mermaid Fun

Happy Monday evening my lovelies. Here’s hoping that you had a wonderful start to the week. This is our last full week of Summer break before school starts up and we are trying to make the most of it :)

I have another Summer card to share with you featuring mermaids (again. In case you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for mermaid stamps)

I created the background myself using some plain white Neenah cardstock. I embossed a Hero Art background stamp with some white embossing powder and then just sponged on various colors of  Distress Ink. Using Distress inks ensures that the colors blend together seamlessly. So pretty. I added some gems and of course, the mermaid images which are from the Sweet November Mermaid set.

Maritime Tags #2

Happy Sunday my lovelies! Hope you had a fabulous week-end so far! I am back to show another one of my Maritime tags that I made for my boys :)

DSC_7621 copy

This is another fun and playful image and because I made 3 of these tags at a time, it was pretty quick and easy. I just changed up the dies that I used for each tag, keeping the basic heart shape the same. That is why I love using all the various die-lights. You can change up a die or two and get something different and customized!

Here are the product links for you:


Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely, lovely day!

Stamp and Create with Magnolia

Happy Friday my lovelies! I am popping in today to share my latest Magnolia creation with you for the Stamp and Create with Magnolia challenge. The theme this week is “ For a Teacher”.

I thought of this cutie immediately :)

DSC_7783 copy

The stamp is called Autumn Tilda with Pencils and I colored it with copics and then masked the image so that I could add in some air-brushing. The banner shapes are from Stampin’ Up and I stamped them with various inks to match the coloring of my image. The card base is from Pebbles. I am loving these ready made bases…makes things so quick and easy!

You are Fabulous

Happy Wednesday everyone! What is that expression? It is raining cats and dogs this morning. It has been a while since we had rain so I won’t complain. It was nice to wake up cozy in bed and hear the rain hitting the roof and KNOWING that I didn’t have to get up and go anywhere :) Not so nice for hubby who DID have to get up and drive our hockey player to camp :(

Today I want to share another PL insert that I made using one of the newer Whimys's Wee Stamps. This image is called Maya.

DSC_7766 copy 

I cut a piece of Neenah White Solar Crest paper to size at 4x6” and stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo black ink. After coloring the image with copic markers, I sponged Tumbled Glass Distress ink along the sides and stamped the sentiment (from Stampin’ Up) using Versamark Black Onyx ink. Then I added some bling and my insert was done :)

That is it for me this fine, rainy morning. I am still waiting for hubby to get back. He promised to pick up Timmies :)

Maritime Tags

Happy Sunday everyone! We are having a gorgeous week-end weather wise. Sunny, warm, no humidity and a wonderful breeze. When it is like this, I love going on long bike rides by the river with the boys. Which is what I plan to do after getting this post done and lunch made :) Hope you have some fun plans of your own!

I wanted to share one of the 3 tags that I made for my boys using the new Maritime digital images from Whiff of Joy.

I just adore this sweet image of Henry staring off into ocean blue. There is a lot going on with this tag but I like how it all looks together :0

Here are the supplies that I used:



I made a tag for each of my boys, so I have two more that I will share with you later on this week. Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!
