I have used the Tim Holtz Tag & Tile Die, I luv this die; it is the perfect size tag. I have used watercolor paper and added Dina Wakley paints to the tag to give a painted looking background. I then added embossing paste using the Tim Holtz burlap stencil; the flower is Clarly Besotted. Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp DT creations...sparkle & shine!

My terrific trio is three sentiments, Julee has the best sentiments and I wanted to show off how you can use more than one on the front of your card! What fun! You can mix and match Verve's sentiments to make separate statements or a sweetly paired sentence. I have used sentiments from the same Verve set, Small Packages. I cannot wait to see what you create...sparkle & shine!

You Matter Very Much


OMGoodness friends, I have been sooooo busy with our kitchen make over! It is coming along nicely, but slowly since we are doing the work ourselves. I hope to share some photos real soon. I have been itching to get inky, I am missing my creative time. I want to share a card that was created for lots of challenges, check them all out below. I have used the sweet butterfly stamp from Simon Says Stamp, Butterfly Friends. The sentiment is totally sweet and it is from the set Friendly Flowers. I have used embossing paste to achieve the background, some tiny washi tape and gemstones in the center of the butterfly complete my card! Click on the links to below to shop products...sparkle & shine!

Tag Your It: inspired by karen/#6
SCS Cards For A Cause: use a butterfly
SCS Inspiration Challenge: IC458..I was inspired by the black and white vase

I had so much fun with the Gelatos, this was my first time using them....they remind me of a big fat crayon. Be sure to check out this link to see the many different ways you can use Gelatos. I used embossing paste to create the fun design with the new Simon Says Stamp Dots and Lines Stencil...sooo cute. Then I added water to the Gelatos and painted it on in random spots. I want to try some other ways of using the Gelatos, they are lots of fun. I cannot wait to see what background you create...sparkle & shine!
