Hey everyone! Today I am sharing some cards I made for nurses week. I don’t often make more then one of one design, but when I was contacted and asked to make a dozen cards for nurses week to be picked up at easter. I went with 3 designs, changed them all up a little but yeah it was fun!
I kept things pretty simple colouring up Stamping Bella’s Oddball Nurse (all products will be linked at the bottom of the blog post) Colouring them up with my copic markers.
I did decide to go a bit snarky with these 4 cards, as I was asked to make a few funny ones. Which is why this stamp was so perfect for it!!!!
Once I had all my characters coloured up, I had to decide what to do with the background, because why would I plan that ahead! So I cut a piece of white cardstock and splashed on some Dylusions Black Marble ink for a little something, and added a crooked cut white and red striped pattern paper to the bottom. I am actually really happy with how cute these ones came out!
I will share the other sets of cards in a few days!
Hey everyone! Told you all I would be back to regular posting! Woot woot, did you see my last post and my super exciting announcement? If not, you should really go look at it!
Anyway onto this card isn’t that image just darling!?! She is Img376 from Sherri Baldy My Besties, and I coloured her up with my Copic Markers.
I used some of the new dies I got in recently to layer in with the papers and finished the cards off with some seam binding and flowers.

Hey everyone! Christmas is so close, and I am almost ready!! One of the last things I do to prepare is a bunch of baking and this past weekend that included a crazy amount of cookie baking (I think its my sons favorite activity). So here I am scrapbooking a few instagram pictures of the cookies we made on the weekend.
I am a subscriber to the Hip Kit Club scrapbooking kit, and on the member forum on facebook, Kimberly gave us a weekend challenge and this is the layout I did for the challenge. The recipe that needed to be used for the challenge was using an image she posted as inspiration for the layout (that is where my stenciled backround came in to play), include a minimum of three fonts in your title, use stamping on your project (this is difficult to see on my layout but on the bright green paper I stamped falling snow in versamark and embossed it in silver), include gold or silver, and use a minimum of three patterned papers.
It was a challenge for me to make sure I had everything included that is for sure! I rarely follow a recipe or sketch for my layouts, but it was fun to play along!

So I was playing on my ustream channel, just making some cards, and I chose a wonderful little stamp set from Scraptastic. I am a subscriber to their PL kit, and their scrapbooking kit. Yes, I don’t only make cards, ha ha!
I thought it would be fun to use a stamp set that was designed for scrapbooking in a card! It can be done!
I know the Iphone image did not stamp perfect, probably because I was using the rougher side of the watercolour paper, but I like it anyway. The sentiment also comes from the same set.
