Critter cards…

Hi friends, I’m popping in today with a quick post to show you another of the card sets that are available in the store for you now.  They are all stamped and waiting for you to color them and make them into cards, similar to what I’m showing you here today.


I used Copic markers to colors these designs.  Copics are alcohol based markers similar to Sharpies, but where Sharpies have 24 different colors, Copics have 355 different colors!  I bet you didn’t even know there WERE 355 different colors!

Lori will be bringing in another line of alcohol-based markers that are very similar to Copics, called Spectrum Noir, and they provide the same beautiful blend-ability at a much friendlier price point.  And don’t forget, you can accomplish the very same kind of shading with colored pencils.  Your kids will give you permission to use theirs without a second thought.  Until they see what you can do with them.  Then they’ll want their pencils back to try some of this magical coloring too!


The stamped designs of these cards is such that you can simply color them up, and adhere them to a card front, or you can crop them and make a more elaborate card with mats, patterned papers and embellishments.  I left mine quite simple here because it’s the style I love best.  Just some coordinating Nuvo drop dots and I’m good.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Mini Encouragments

Hello friends!

This week I wanted to create small cards that could still contain a decent amount of encouragement…and so I created mini accordion style cards.


I didn’t get a side view photo of the cards to show the zig zag shape, but what I did was, I simply cut 3.5″ x 12″ rectangles from a regular 12″ x 12″ paper and then folded each strip into 4 sections.


I searched for an inspirational quote and found the “Always Remember” one. I love how it’s something that applies to everyone and therefore can be gifted to anyone.

The “envelopes” I used for these mini cards, are the little cloth bags that can be found at Love is in the Details. I love how they can be used instead of envelopes for  cards and also function as the cutest gift bags.


Most of the embellishments used are from the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Collection, from which I used both stickers and chipboard pieces. Here are a few close ups…




Unfortunately, I haven’t been the best at taking photos in the cloudy weather we’ve had during the last few days…hence the not so clear photos. While I’m not so happy with the pictures, I’m happy with the weather. Do you enjoy the coziness of rainy days?

Here’s one last photo of the triplets all lined up…


Thanks for stopping by! And remember…You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and more loved than you know. I hope you have an amazing week!
