Good Things Come with Therm O Web & Kindred Stamps

Happy May! The year is flying by, and I’m still finding it difficult to get back to a regular blogging schedule these days, but I’m happy to say that I’m back today with a new project to share. This time, a fun summer-inspired card that I made for the Kindred Stamps collaboration on the Therm O Web blog this week.


My little Missy Nik has always loved going camping and fishing (of the catch and release variety), so this adorable stamp set by Kindred Stamps called The Great Outdoors totally made me think of her. She is quickly coming down to her last few days of finals of her second year at college, and I’m planning to surprise her with this card when she’s done. That girl loves a good pun, and she can’t wait to be finished for the year, so this card will be right up her alley.


For this card, I made a round port-hole window scene using dies from the Therm O Web GinaK Designs collection, and filled it with images from the set, big puffy white clouds, and a water border made from the negative edge of a die cut scallop strip. The cutie patootie fisherman and his trout friend are Copic colored. I added a bit of twine and a thin paper strip. That cool background was made with Kindred Stamps’ Basketweave stencil and Therm O Web’s new iCraft Deco Foil Metallix Gel. A great way to add texture and shine to all your paper crafting projects.

Metallix Gel comes in a variety of colors, and requires no special tools or techniques to use. I’ve got a full step-by-step tutorial for this card, as well as a second hunting and fishing design, up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Season’s Greetings


Christmoose and I just wanted to pop in to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! May this holiday season bring you many blessings, happy memories, and treasured moments with those you hold dear.
And I hope Santa is good to you, too!


The big day is almost here, and time has come to put away Christmas until next year…. but not until I squeeze in one last holiday project for today that I made recently for Joy Clair week on the Therm O Web blog. This is the adorable Christmoose stamp set paired with Therm O Web red deco foil and clear toner acetate sheets to make a holiday shaker gift tag.


I used a sentiment from the stamp set to create a sign post greeting for the tag, and the same sentiment was stamped repeatedly around the tag frame, too. Chris, here, was colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut. I added a bit of Glossy Accents to eyes and crystal clear Stickles to hat and snowbank. The red striped shaker window was made with one of Therm O Web’s clear acetate sheets that was foiled in bright holiday red. I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Merry Christmas!!

Therm O Web & GinaK Designs Winter Stampn’foil Release Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends, and welcome to the Therm O Web & GinaK Designs Winter Stampn’Foil blog hop! Today is the reveal day for two beautiful new winter holiday-inspired Stampn’Foil collections, and we are celebrating with a blog hop full of inspiration and project ideas from the Therm O Web and GinaK Designs teams. And of course there are some awesome prizes to give away along the way, too….

You should have arrived here from the Therm O Web blog, but if you are just popping in, you can start at the beginning HERE.


For my project, I created a Christmas card in a fun retro color palette using the new Holly Jolly Stampn’foil set. This adorable set contains a great mix of stamp images, including some favorites that work really well for either Christmas or for winter-inspired designs. I combined the holly and the poinsettia images in the focal cluster you see here, and used some of the other stamps from the set to create my own background patterned papers, as well.


I always love a good side view of our foils, so that you can really catch a glimpse of the beautiful shine. I used Red Velvet Fancy Foils and the matching Holly Jolly toner detail sheets to add those pretty red foil highlights to the focal poinsettia blossoms. And check out all the layers of color on those flowers from the Stampn’foil multi-step stamping process which allows you to stamp each individual section in a different color. I am a neutral-loving girl at heart, but there’s something about the holidays that just calls for brighter colors, and this retro color palette (Innocent Pink, Cherry Red, and Turquoise Sea by GinaK Designs) is one of my absolute favorites for Christmas.


For something a little bit different, the base of my card is a petite 3.5″ x 5″ size. I used matching colors of GinaK cardstocks to layer the base, and stamped tone-on-tone patterns on both the background panel and the pink banner strip down the middle of the card using stamps from the Holly Jolly set. The GinaK Decorative Tag die set was used to die cut the center tag. I embellished the tag with a thin strip of stitched cardstock and pretty GinaK Designs white satin ribbon. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the tag, while the holly leaves and poinsettias were die cut and popped onto the tag with 3D adhesive squares. White wax pen details and enamel dots finish the design.

If you are just joining me, be sure to go back and start at the Therm O Web blog for all the information and details on today’s hop. And don’t forget to enter our prize giveaway while you are there for your chance to win the new collection, a prize value of over $200.

A Glorious Bouquet with Ranger Ink


The weather forecast calls for solid rain and thunderstorms over the next 8 days… so things are kind of gloomy here in my neck of the woods right now. Not at all summer-like. I’m already missing the sunshine and blue skies, so thought I would cheer things up here with a summery card to chase away the grey. A sweet floral birthday card that I have the great pleasure of sharing today over on the Ranger Ink blog.


I love this Glorious Bouquet stamp by Tim Holtz, and thought it would be perfect to use for my friend, Paige’s, July birthday. I stamped a portion of the floral image in brown Archival ink onto a panel of watercolor paper, and then colored it in with Distress inks and markers. Added a drop shadow around the branches with marker. And blended things smooth with a wet paintbrush.


A pair of dimensional frames made with some Tim Holtz dies gives a bit of a shadowbox feel to the design. I inked the frames in a pretty Distress combo of Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet, with some Brushed Corduroy thrown in because, well…. that’s my favorite. Ranger opaque crackle paste was rubbed into the corners, then brushed with perfect pearls for a soft shimmery finish.


I love how this card turned out. So perfectly shabby sweet, like only Distress can do. As always, I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial up on the Ranger Ink blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by, friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I got together with some of my scrappy gal pals for a day of cropping…. but then found out my car battery was dead. But what’s life without a bit of sweet and a bit of sour, right? Hope you all have lots of sweet in the week ahead!

Eat Cake with Therm O Web & Brutus Monroe

Brutus Monroe Logo

Happy Friday, friends! I’m back today with day two of my projects for the Brutus Monroe match-up on the Therm O Web blog this week.


For my first Brutus project, I shared a card straight from the flower garden. And this time, I’m going with a more whimsical approach with Brutus’ fun Topsy Cakes stamps on a set of gift tags. I think these tags would work great for birthdays, or retirements, or weddings, or any celebratory occasion….. or even just the end of the work week, like today. I mean, I hardly ever need an excuse to eat cake!


I pulled out some GinaK Designs dies from the Decorative Tag Set for both the small and large tag shapes here. The Topsy Cakes were stamped onto the tags, and then masked to add the stenciled pattern in the background. The images were colored with Copic markers.


A sentiment from the Topsy Cakes set was stamped onto the smaller tags, and tied to the top with a bit of twine. GinaK gingham ribbon was inked to match. As always, I’ve got the full tutorial for this project up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Happy weekend to you! Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Letter It Thanks with Ranger Ink


Happy Monday, Friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today I’m sharing a card project that I made for the Creativations (CHA) show in January for the Ranger Ink booth featuring their artsy new Letter It collection.


If you haven’t checked out the Letter It collection yet, you should take a peek at all the fun products available in the line. For my card here, I focused on stamps and embossing ink, and seeing how many ways I could use the beautiful metallic gold Perfect Pearls powder. According to the descriptive information, these powders are specially developed with a built in resin, and are easy to use wet or dry. So I tried it out both ways.


One of the fun things you can do with Perfect Pearls powders is to combine them with water and a water brush or paintbrush for painted pearlescent watercolor effects. And that’s what I did here with the Flutter butterfly background panel. I used a mix of Distress Inks and gorgeous Sunflower Sparkle powder to add color to the butterflies, which were stamped in clear embossing powder onto Letter It Ivory Cardstock.


The bold sentiment image is from the Letter It Thank You stamp set, which was also stamped with embossing ink and brushed with the gold powder. The edges of the black panel were pressed into the ink and brushed with powder to match. And then for a dry technique, I simply brushed powder onto some ivory photo corners to tie everything together.

I do love the Letter It product line, and am looking forward to playing with it more. And if any of you are interested in trying it out, be sure to check out the awesome sale at Scrapbook.com right now on all Ranger products! Woo Hoo!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Beach Hair with Therm O Web

Hi Sweet Friends! Happy Monday!


We have been having the most beautiful weather here. The storms have cleared, leaving nothing but blue skies and gentle breezes. Feels like summer has returned.


Even so, signs of fall are creeping in. The first hint of color is popping out in the trees, and there’s a squirrel burying acorns in my front lawn this morning.   And of course, I have completed switched over to fall inside. Fall crafts….. fall decorations…. I even bought my first pumpkin of the season yesterday. You know me and autumn…it just can’t come soon enough.


Weather like this, though, has me longing for the beach. So perfect time to share some seaside tags I made recently for the Therm O Web blog, featuring dies from the GinaK Designs collection and stamps from our friends at Waffle Flower Crafts.


This is the adorable Bear and Bird stamp set, with paper from Simple Stories’ Summer Days collection. I framed my beach scenes with square dies from GinaK Designs, and gave my bears some cool beach accessories from a super old Stampin’Up stamp set that I haven’t used for years. Bonus points for that! 🙂

I’ve got the complete tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead!
