Modern Thank You Set

Here in Seattle its been sunshiney and beautiful, but on the chilly side.  This weekend there's the possibility of SNOW. So I'm gearing up for a cozy weekend (Oscar party?!) It looks like that cozy theme may spill over into next week!
I've been busy creating some new things in my studio and I want to share with you a new design I've created. Its modern, sleek, and unique - I haven't ever created anything quite like this, and I love these cards because I had the chance to create "outside the box".  I used an exciting color combination to evoke a current and modern feel, and clean straight lines.

I created three different designs (with arrows - because if you're like me, you love the trend of arrows!) to include in this Thank You set - you get one of each; each are accented with a little sparkle.

Super cute, huh? The best part is that these cards are perfect to keep on hand for any time you need a thank you. I even provide arrow-accented acid …

Chevron Dancing Girls Greeting Card

Lately I've been playing with some new stencils I got while on a trip to Portland. I absolutely love The Crafters Workshop stencils because they are always coming out with the latest designs and are so contemporary and current. I also live for that feeling when you lift the stencil after sponging or pouncing your chosen colors and the paper reveals pretty, colorful and attractive designs - it's like magic! I had a lot of fun making this new card! The stencil I used was the chevron 6x6 one by Balzer Designs, from The Crafter's Workshop. I designed this card in an analogous color scheme and if you're like me, you'll just love how it turned out! I added some sparkly bling after stamping the dancing girls, just for fun. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. This greeting is available for purchase in my Etsy shop! Thanks for tuning in!

Robot Hello

Hello Again! Glad to have you visiting with me once again. Today’s post is featuring this cute little robot card I made recently. I’ve had these little robot images for several years and I’ve only had the chance to use them once or twice. I think they’re perfect for Valentine’s Day or a Hello. I recently bought a student set of water colors to play with. After filling my watercolor brush with water, I found that these little robots were perfect for water color! I paired them with my new Hello from Seattle image and colored it with colored pencils to match the green background. I just added a little rhinestone to her bow, cut her out and adhered her to her die cut. I’ll use her Mr. in a different card. I love the green on this card, its springy and fresh and works great for men or women recipients. Cute. :) Makes me smile. I hope you like it as well.

Betty Grable Valentine

Welcome Back! :)

New in the shop, freshly added, is this Valentines card featuring the famous Betty Grable pinup image in stamped form. The image is from Stamper's Best and stamped on white, then covered with "Vintage Matte" Mod Podge to give it an aged look.

Inside reads Happy Valentine's Day. Perfect for someone who loves vintage pinup!
