Apothecary Art

With the imminent departure of the stamp set Apothecary Accents (on June 2), I had to revisit this card from 2012.  It won the Best of Class ribbon at the Sandwich Fair that summer.  (You can read more about it … Continue reading

A few weeks ago, Erica Cerwin posted a collection of pastel Curvy Keepsake Boxes adorned with die-cut butterflies.  I thought they were utterly fabulous, so we made these at last month’s Heartfelt Inkspiration team meeting.  (I toyed with the idea … Continue reading

Easter brunch invitation

After a busy prep week getting ready for the All-Occasions Stamp-a-Stack last weekend, yesterday was quiet and lazy to the extreme!  After worship, we had a (second) breakfast with a friend, then came home and napped in front of the … Continue reading

Indescribable Gift Easter

I wonder if this card layout was once a sketch challenge somewhere online — I’ve seen many cards with this keyhole-type feature.  It’s equally interesting when the hole is punched at the side (on a portrait orientation) instead of the … Continue reading

A pocket card for you

Although I credit Inge Groot for this project, I think Aly Schilling was the stamper who showed how to color this image with Sponge Daubers.  I love this technique with this stamp, from Indescribable Gift, because the result is so … Continue reading
