Anything goes challenge



It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week is anything goes.

Flowers and jar are from Repeat Impressions. Thanks is a die from Simon Say Stamp. I did pop it up using foam tape so that it stands out.


Flowers are colored with Copic's and the centers are done using Fabrika Decoru.

Best wishes

Hello. Sorry to have been missing in action this past week. I took a well deserved vacation and pretty much unplugged.  Here is my take on the no stamps challenge over at Less is More.



Kept this pretty clean and simple. Sentiment is a die and is cut out using black metallic cardstock from DCWV. Used an old border die on the bottom and then added some grosgrain ribbon to hide the seam. 

That's it for now. Thanks for dropping by.

Project of the week....3D embellishment

Hello everyone! It's my turn to host the project of the week this time and after starting and stopping so many different projects (my mojo was sorely missing). I stumbled upon some shrinky dink film that had been hidden in my cupboard (isn't it amazing what you find when your looking for something else?) and got the idea to use it to make a card embellishment.

I stamped the large butterfly onto the white piece of polyshrink material with Archival ink. Stazon would be the ink to use here, but I threw mine out years ago. Once dry, I cut around it being careful not to smudge the ink.
Using my heat gun (first warm it up, so it's good and hot) I shrunk the butterfly down. Once it cooled off I glued it down onto the card.

I stamped a bunch of flowers in different colors of purple dye ink and randomly added some leaves to fill the space up. I then popped this up using fun foam onto a purple card base. I used several purple colors of Fabrika Decoru to add some dimension to the flower centers.

Here is a close up of the butterfly.

Stamps used:
5125-C, Dragonfly
10204-D, Leaf Cluster Solid
10207-E, Flower Cluster Solid
9001-L, Butterfly
10306-E, Daisy Solid Small
Plate 8600 - sentiment

Thanks for the lift

Hello.  Playing in the Freshly Made Sketch challenge today.


I've had this scalloped square cut and sitting in my UCB box for a while now and thought it would work well for the sketch. It's a bit bigger than the sketch calls for, but I was bound and determined to use it. I used tiny foam squares to pop it up off of the main image to give it a bit of dimension/3D look.

Dragon and friends stamp is from C.C. Designs and colored with Copic's.You could use so many different sentiments for this stamp...thanks for the lift, you lift me up, Mother's day...etc.

That is it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
