Your Strength is Inspiring

These are real leaves that I picked from my yard. I put them through my Big Shot and got these imprints. No ink needed. You can see the technique done here. Lydia calls it Duoprinting with Chlorophyll. It's a pretty neat technique!

Purple Nativity

I usually send out 50 Christmas cards and this is one I should've just repeated 50 times since it was a 5 minute card. LOL I love the simplicity of it and I normally do silhouettes in black but one of my  challenges was for purple and white and I immediately thought of this die cut to use for it. I know a few purple lovers who this can go to.

Joy to the World

I bought this awesome die last month at the stamp show in Sevierville, TN. I die cut the image then I made a stencil out of it and inked it up using my Catherine Pooler Grape Crush ink (love ALL of her inks so much!) and then I brushed it on using my Picket Fence brush. A one layer card - easy peasy!

It's a Girl!

When I saw this baby set by Gina Marie Designs at the stamp show last month in Sevierville, TN I knew I had to get it. I only had "ONE" baby stamp and I have used that for the numerous baby showers I went to this year and thought I need more baby stamps. So this was it. It's great for either boy or girl! I also decided to decorate the inside of the card and I want to do that more in 2020 :).

My husband will soon have a great-grandbaby on the way that is due early December so this will be for her.

Happy Birthday Wishes "80"

My aunt's neighbor turns 80 in a few weeks so I thought this was the perfect way to say Happy 80th! I decided to use my Picket Fence brushes to kind of just blend in some blue for the sky and some green for the grass. I didn't want to go overboard, I just lightly did it and left it as is.
