Notebook Give Thanks card

It is Thankful Thursday and how fitting that I start a bible study today!

Supplies for this card:

Kraft cardstock

Off-white cardstock

Turquoise Stamp pad

Various colored markers

A Jillian Vance Design Notebook set

A Jillian Vance Design Autumn Leaves set

Hole punch

I just loved this way this pumpkin looked a little like a sketch (If only I could draw like that). I stamped the notebook paper with Turquoise ink, cut it out, punched the holes out and stamped "Just a Note" and the Give Thanks bible verse in Brown. I colored the pumpkin in various colors and stamped it at the bottom. I mounted the page on Kraft cardstock. Inside I tore a part of another stamped notebook sheet and stamped the sentiment on that. This little notebook page is wonderful for scrapbook journalling, too. Both of these sets can be found at:

Look for my new designs each Monday in October!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.


Golden Witch


Welcome to Witchy Wednesday! For this little lady, I used Black cardstock, Hot Off the Press Hammered Gold paper, Stazon Black ink, and Adirondack Paint Dabber in Gold. I stamped the witch with the gold Paint Dabber,then added design with a gold pen, tore around the image and inked the edges with the Paint Dabber. I stamped "Wicked" with black Stazon ink. My favorite witch and Wicked are both from A Jillian Vance Design Witchy Poo set, witch can be purchased below. Ok, I know I spelled "which" wrong! LOL!

Until next time,

Black and Maize Halloween card

Hello, Friends!

I am sharing this card design with you. I used black and maize cardstock. I stamped the Witch from the Witchy Poo set, the bat and Happy Halloween from the Eye on Halloween set, the cat and large spider from the Spooky set, the little spiders from the God's Art set, and the mini stitch hanging from the large spider are from More Stitches. After stamping, I cut the tops of each piece at an angle and attached them to the front of the card. I inked the edges in red to help them stand out. On the inside, I stamped the sentiment on maize cardstock, left enough room for a signature, cut it out at an angle and attached it.

All these cute stamps used on this card can be found at:

I would love your comments! Until next time, have fun!

"God's Gift" card

The card is made with Kiwi cardstock. I stamped the corner piece on ecru paper using the babywipe technique. I used Ranger Olive and Terra Cotta Alcohol Inks and Gold and Silver Mixatives. I cut the corner out and inked the edges brown. I stamped the sentiments outside and inside with olive ink. The small leaf was stamped just like the corner and I made the bubble cap with the Epiphany Shape Studio Tool.
These and many more stamps can be found at:
