Been working on some card-making this week among other projects. I buy lots of stamps for cards I want to make but never seem to get around to doing it. Well, I spent yesterday afternoon in my room creating cards. I’ve never considered myself a card maker so it takes me three times as long to finish one – much longer than building a scrapbook page or mini book!
I have this Hero Arts cling stamp – Daisy Label – which is a framed stamp with journal lines running through the center. I wanted to use only the frame so chose not to ink the inside areas of the stamp. The frame is stamped with Ranger Archival ink because it is waterproof once heat set so I was able to watercolor the flower and spritz the entire stamped area with shimmer mist made from mixing Ranger’s Perfect Pearls and water in a mini mister. Added the stamped sentiment, a couple of mats and adhered it all to the card. And … I have a card! One day I hope to be inspired to write something in them and actually pop them in the mail to someone special.
Are we having great weather or what this week! Rachel and her dogs came to visit today. We planned on kayaking so left Bella and Molly with grandma and we drifted on Appleton Lake for a couple of hours. How nice. Finished the day off with dinner outdoors then went to the Yum Yum Tree for dessert! Grandma loves the Yum Yum Tree and we love having an excuse to go there.
Class scheduling is going well through September and October. I’m working on class samples and have classes scheduled at Scrapbook Peddler, Scrapbooks Galore & More and Capture a Memory so far. Check the calendar regularly on my blog for updates.

Hi Linda 🙂 I love the Yum Yum tree!! One of my Favorite places to go. Your card turned out awesome for a Non card maker…LOL…silly girl!! You just make more elaborate things than cards. Look at all those techniques you used…some wouldn’t even know what they are. I think it is a great card!! Just think of it as one page of a mini album 🙂 Glad you are teaching…hope it all goes well. Bummer I didn’t get to take that technique class…LOL. You might have to stop by my house..and show me…and then we can go to the Yum Yum tree 🙂
You say you are not a card maker. I would strongly disagree!! If that card was for sale, I would by it. Love the tecniques used. Will be looking for your card classes. Miss you & ST.
Very nice. I love it! Too bad you don’t live closer to me. I love your work and would love to learn how to do all that. ;-))
