Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


Yes! Let’s celebrate and have some fun!

I was FINALLY using some of my numerous Unity Stamps for a Virtual Stamp Night Challenge on Splitcoaststampers yesterday and came up with this card. The challenge was to “hide” something on the card, so I hid the kite behind the cloud. I love layering on cards and this was so easy!

I met a bunch of other challenges with this card too, so check the supply list for the challenge blog links there.

Here’s an Ippity Stamps only card. It’s a simple one using this week’s Card Positioning Systems Sketch and Play Date Cafe’s colors.

I heat embossing the chandelier in clear, inked with the metallic ink then rubbed the ink off of the embossed image. Voila!

I love making cards!

It’s Virtual Stamp Night this weekend on Splitcoast Stampers, so I thought that I would indulge myself in some stamping just for the fun of it.

So, VSN has various challenges under this month’s theme of You Make My Heart Sing. The hostesses are extremely creative with their challenges all relating back to the main theme. Great job ladies!

Here is another card with many more to come:

Let’s take a look at some cards that I’ve made using Unity and Ippity stamps!

Did you know that I’m an Ippity Chick and sell Ippity stamps? They are the best cling mount, red rubber stamps out there! Clear images, lots of versatility and especially great value for the money.

Take a look! If you would like to see more Ippity, take a look at my Ippity selling blog for all the sets and great info on the stamps.
