Cheers Witches


Hello crafty friends! (I meant to post this a few days ago and forgot) It's a bit less than 1 week to go before Halloween, so I thought that I would share a fun card using the Witches Brew digital stamp set from Polka Dot Orchard.  The witch diving into the bubbling cauldron is just the cutest! She seems to be having a great time, so let's get started!

Alcohol inks and shaving foam

Hello and welcome back crafty friends!  Today I have a fun technique to share with you all using ink and shaving foam!  The possibilities are endless with this and I can guarantee you will become addicted to it like I am!  I could have spent all day playing!  You may need to raid your significant others or even your medicine cabinet for one of the supplies or even make a quick emergency run to the store...but I promise you it is worth it!  Let's get right to it because today's post is a bit of a long one and has quite a few photos and even a wee video for you all.  Let's get to it!

Iris Ornaments

Hello and happy Monday crafty friends!  I found a technique awhile ago that I have been wanting to try and this weekend I finally sat down and did just that.  My first try with it was alright.  I made a few errors and definitely had a few things that I could improve on, but for a first go at it, I was pleased...if you follow me on Instagram, then you will have seen my first try.  Today I am back with 2 new cards and my second attempt at this technique....I was much more pleased with them this time.

Vintage Art

Hello crafty friends!  I am back with my second post for today.  I actually meant to post this a few days ago, but of course I forgot to.  So better late than never, right?  This card was made for hubby's birthday and was perfect for him, as he is a tattoo artist!  I've actually had this set for several years now, but have only now used it.

Peace On Earth

Hello crafty friends and welcome back!  So I've decided that I really need to show some much needed love to all of my older stamps and supplies that I have and that are just as amazing as all the newer stuff.  And I also need to get a start on some Christmas cards, since they will be even more important to send out this year.  So today I have a CAS (clean and simple) card to share with you all doing just that...using some older products on a Christmas card.
