    A fun little kitty at the beach card. He’s just relaxing under an umbrella w/ tall, cold drink nearby. Would be perfect for a summer birthday, Father’s Day or a getaway, bon voyage card for friends. Change up the colors to go with your chosen paper.

    A big congrats to Linda, the newest Featured Stamper (FS902)! She has fun, growing gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the narrow window layout but I used different images, dies, colors & a stamped greeting instead of die cut.

    For my card, I die cut the white front then used a mini slimline die for the window. I wanted have a bit of a frame, so i cut the inside piece w/ the next smaller size die & put the frame back w/ a piece of designer paper behind it. The images were colored & die cut w/ their coordinating dies, popped up.

    These are the Copics I used:

  • Fire Hazard


    A fun, easy birthday card for just about anyone. This new set has a lot of fun “firemen” and funny birthday greetings and the matching dies make it quick.

    Congrats to Jennifer, the newest Featured Stamper (FS899)! She has a super fun gallery & I chose THIS card to case. The angled layout really grabbed my attention, so I kept that & the birthday theme. I used different images, dies, colors & papers.

    My card is really simple. I colored & die cut the cute images, then found some bright paper to go with it. I only used one piece of printed paper then added the blue & pink strips. The greeting was added to the pink strip, the two images were popped up & I added a few rhinestones above the cake.

    Here are the Copics I used:

  • Easter Ducks



    A sweet little Easter card with adorable little spring ducks. Mama duck in her Easter bonnet is pulling her duckling in a cart of Easter eggs.It would be easy to swap out this greeting for Mother’s Day.


    It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS895), so a big congrats to Sioban! She has a fabulous gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the ducks, cart & circle element, but I used different dies, turned it vertical & added a designer paper background.

    The ducks & flowers were cut out of white & colored w/ Copics. The parts of the cart were cut using a few shades of brown & I did cut the length of the cart & moved the wheel in toward cart for a better fit. The big cracked egg that the duckling is sitting in is actually the artist palette. The shape was perfect for a large egg & I cut the tops in a zigzag w/ a pair scissors. The inset piece of the palette was also a perfect egg shape, so I colored 3 of them & stuck then in the cart w/ some sprigs of grass. The circle background behind the ducks was stamped w/ the faux watercolor images & ink that I spritzed w/ water before stamping, for a softer look.

    I always look through my dies & images to see what I can use when I don’t have exact thing I want, so don’t be afraid to rearrange or alter your stamped images or dies to get the look you want.
    Here are the Copics I used on my die cuts:
