Back to School

Posted on

My grand kids are getting ready to start a new school year next week.  I’ve taken them each out to lunch and shopping.  Tomorrow will be time to finish my grandson’s shopping and getting a haircut.  Over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog the theme for this week is Back to School.  I made each of the kids a card to wish them a successful school year.

I recently got Tim Holtz’ Hipster stamp set and the matching dies.  For Hailey’s card I used the ostrich:

For Tristan’s card I used the cat, I figured starting middle school makes him a cool cat:

I had fun coloring the hipsters and then cutting and layering the pieces.  I used a school-themed paper pad from my stash to create the backgrounds.  I used Ranger Enamel Accents and embossing powders to add color and shine.

Thanks for stopping by my long-neglected blog, I’d love to know what you think of my cards.



Distress Watercoloring – CCC Challenge #5

Posted on

Happy 4th of July!  I’m jumping in Studio L3’s Challenge #5  from Tim Holtz’s latest book, A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 3 at the last minute!  I made a birthday card for a young man.

The technique is Distress Watercoloring – Part 1 found on page 39.  A very fun way to color.  The sponsor for Challenge #5 is one of my favorite places to shop, Inspiration Emporium.  Go to Studio L3 and check out all the great Distress Watercoloring art.

My grandkids came for a visit earlier this week and we made slime!


Thanks for stopping by and, as always, I love your comments.

Father’s Day for Jeremy

Posted on

I wanted to share a little burlap canvas I made for my son.  I used mostly Tim Holtz/Ranger products and techniques to create it.

My son has really stepped up to the Dad plate in the last few months and I thought the quote is perfect.  My grandson and I made a card, too. He loves getting inky with me!
