I am a card designer and paper artist who loves creating cards and paper projects. I enjoy learning new techniques and sharing ideas with friends. I am now a Certified Altenew Educator having successfully completed all leveled lessons /challenges and teaching a Zoom virtual workshop. Take a look at my Instagram posts of my paper projects. My favorite color in case you wanted to know is- Glitter!

Especially For You! card

With another six inches of snow last night and clearing off the driveway again- it was time for a card with bright spring colors.  Hand cut flowers, paper doily and a word banner complete the look. And of course, some glitter glue and liquid pearls complete the look.  This card makes me smile.Image

Happy Trees!

Time to think leaves!  I used a Hero Arts tree stamp, one I had used for a Christmas card last year, that I embossed with copper embossing powder, inked with Ranger distress ink, sprinkled on some water and added green leaves using a small leaf punch, added some words and a word banner.  Love the way it came out. Check out the post on Splitcoaststampers.com and on Flickr, too.  Don’t you love it?!Image

A Trio of Flowers!

I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and landscape arrangements at the Providence Flower show on Friday. So nice to see flowers in bloom, ponds and flowering trees. I created a card using a newly purchased Hero Arts flower stamp, embossed stamped background and a die cut vine tendril.  Think warm sunshine!Image

Sunny Yellow Flowers

Time to think sunny yellow!  I created this card last year and wanted to share it as yellow is a great color during the gray February days and snow on the ground. I used an embossed background stamp, cut out frame and two die cut flowers from Memory Box. I was inspired by a post on Pinterest and made some changes-of course.  Use my card to get you started! Happy stamping!
