Sunshine in your soul

 Today is a good day to remember to keep sunshine in your soul and to be happy! The Autumn Doodles background stamp was selectively colored with markers, and the sun has yellow glitter on it (although hard to see in the photo).

My Sarcasm

 Don't these two ladies look like they are up to no good?

The women are from the By Us stamp from Technique Junkies and the sentiments are from the Inside Out: Karma set. The background uses the ACLD Connect the Dots Stencil, with Thulian Pink and Mardi Gras Shimmering Bliss sprayed through.

Pirate or Mermaid


Are you a Pirate, a mermaid, or a little of both? For me, it depends on the day (or the hour, sometimes). Most of the time, I like to think of myself as a mermaid, but then rum comes along...

Blooming Beauty

 Sometimes it's challenging to add bright color to an image stamped on a dark background. I stamped the Blooming Beauty image over the bright blue background, then colored it with colored pencils. I then added Diamond Glaze over the top to make it pop. The green really stands out in real life!

The stamps may be found here:

Wish upon a star

 How many times in your life have you looked up and wished on a falling star? You are never to old to have wishes, or to be hopeful.

The background of this card uses Nave Blue cardstock and the All the Stars Stencil from ACLD. Harvest Sunset Shimmering Bliss was sprayed through lightly to create a shimmering summer sky. The Wish Upon a Star stamp is set off perfectly with a few stars and some subtle sparkle gold paper.

Flamingo Vacation

 Nothing says hot summer vacation like a flamingo! Our All About Summer background stamp was paired with the Flamingo 1 stamp to make this fun-in-the-sun card. Catherine Pooler ink was used to create the Ombre effect.
