Floral Corners under the Mat!

 This is a mistake-proof card! With the floral corners stamped UNDER the mat, overlaps are forgiven. This uses the new Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink on both layers.

Simply stamp the corners on the bottom mat, avoiding overlapping along the edge, then add the top layer to cover up any messiness. Easy Peasy!

The stamp set is HERE. Pat

My chalkboard-inspired Mathematics background is a perfect base for the Geek is the new Sexy focal image! Behind the focal image is a Shimmering Bliss-dipped panel to add some color.

Stars Can't Shine without darkness


What a great reminder that we can't get better unless we persevere through the hard times! Most of us have learned this less through Covid, and as we come out the other side, can appreciate it more! These 2 Technique Junkies Stamps: Hanging Stars and Stars Can't Shine were both stamped with Silver Delicata Ink.

Music of Reason


Perfect for any Math person (I am speaking to you, engineers and teachers!) our Mathematics stamp is a natural match with the Music of Reason sentiment. 

I decided to make my background look like a chalkboard by stamping it with white on black card stock. Mathematics rock!
