Hello my online friends,

Here is my card for the day …

CC Apr 4

I used 2 Crafter’s Companion sets today – Stamp It set 64 – Time to Dream for the oh so dreamy sentiment and Sheena Douglass Hidden Fairies. Patterned paper is from Momenta and the micro-fine glitter on the fairy wing is from Stampendous.


Faerie Poppet Sneak Peak

Time for a sneak peek from the upcoming Crafter’s Companion New release from the Faerie Poppet collection.

CC Fairie Poppet Apr 2

This really is a sneak peak because I used one of 2 smallest images of the collection .. wait till you see the rest of the larger main images. Patterned papers are from Momenta and Bazzill


Gourmet Rubber Stamp Color Challenge

Hello my friends,

Welcome to Gourmet Rubber Stamp April color challenge. Here is the deal …

GRS Apr color challenge

Isn’t it such a happy spring color? Well, it deserves a happy card to go with it – check it …

GRS Apr 25 Color

My patterned papers were all from Momenta, my adorable bicycle and matching sentiment is from the Truffle set – Riding a Bicycle. I love this sentiment because it’s encouraging yet not depressing – hard to find a sentiment with this upbeat feel. I also doodled the frame – been dabbling in a bit of doodling in my art journal lately just experimenting. I will find the courage to share my art journal hopefully soon.

Enjoy the happy color inspiration from the rest of my team:

Have you seen the new Stampendous stamps yet?I’ll be showcasing them every week from now till June .. yup, it’s that many and they’re all to die for!

This week, join me on my Journey to Oz and introducing Overlooking Oz

Stampendous Apr cat4

If you are fan of the Wizard of Oz series, you can catch Tin Man, Scarecrow, Lion, even Dorothy’s Amazing Shoes. These delectable characters are from the Lisa Hindsley collection and it is so exciting that Lisa, Stampendous Art Director for the last 8 years, has now joined Fran in designing stamps for Stampendous. It is our blessing to have you join the designing team in such a big way – welcome!

Watch for what is coming next week …



Bon Chance

Hello folks,

I had to look it up .. Bon Chance means good luck in French. Lately, I feel like my creature comforts are left to chance with this dismal disappearance of Spring weather .. so I need some luck and a warm cuppa sent my way please.

CC Apr 3

Sheena Douglass’s French 50s Cafe stamp collection is just the right set for this card and my mood. I used a digital version of the stamp that the design team has so I was able to manipulate the cup larger – you could do the same by stamping and enlarging it digitally. Cup was also colored with Spectrum Noir markers (PL4, CT1, CT2, CT3, CT4). Patterned papers are from American Craft and Jillibean Soup.

Bon Chance to me and to you too if you need it!

Gourmet Rubber Stamps April Sketch

Hello there..

Just when I’m starting to enjoy warmer Spring weather, green grass and wearing shorts in MN, there is more snow again … argh!!

Well, here is an excuse to get back to the craftroom … here is an easy sketch for Gourmet Rubber Stamps this month.

GRS Apr sketch challenge

Here is my take:

GRS Apr 10 Sketch

The hat and sentiment are from the Dare to be Fabulous set and patterned paper from Authentique Paper.

Come play along with us for this pretty simple sketch challenge – you might very well be our next VIP Guest Designer. Here is what you need to do:
