The Orange Butterfly



Afternoon friends! Here is something I create for a birthday girl I know.

I stamped the butterfly with black Memento ink and colored it with an orange Copic marker. After I cut it out I die cut several of these branches. The DP is leftover from my Halloween cards and the orange matched beautifully with the butterfly. After I glued down the branches and the middle of the butterfly I add orange stickles to give the butterfly that extra bit of sparkle.

A Camo Happy Birthday


I am sitting here at my desk listening to one of my neighbors shooting his gun. So I though this would be a goodtime to post a card I made for one of my teenage sons. Very simple because they don’t like their cards flashy. This was an easy card to make and just perfect for the birthday boy!

A Yellow Happy Anniversary


I am back and wow do I have a lot of cards to share with you all. I have been busy making cards but I always seem to for get to post them. So here is the first one of the new year!!

The tulip stamp is one I came across the other day. I don’t know who the manufacture of it is. I think I may have purchased it at one of those stamp conventions a few years ago. I used my Copics to color it and then I cut it out by hand. The yellow paper is a scrap I was about to put up when I realized it matched my tulips perfectly!
