Raspberry Daisies Beautiful Day Card

OK, one foot in front of the other here.

Step one in rebuilding inventory of cards for HorseSpirit Arts Gallery – pick a favorite image & color. Make a card.

I found a video on Facebook that shows how quickly and how high the water rose in Ellicott City on May 27, 2018. This camera is UPHILL from where HorseSpirit Arts Gallery is located, looking west towards the parking lot where I usually park (I would be parked at the top of the screen). This is only one of the water sources – the Hudson. The Tiber is on the opposite side of Main Street, and the Patapsco crosses under Main Street at the eastern end.

Not sure if this will work for everyone (I am signed into my Facebook account in another window), but here it is:

Supplies: Stamps – A Muse Artstamps, Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.

Sunny Smiles Citrus Card

I pulled out the Essentials by Ellen’s Rustic Botanicals stamp set to work on a Mother’s Day card.

And got hijacked by this circle stamp that reminds me of sliced citrus fruit.

So, I went with it. Happy. Bright.

Smiling Pineapple Note Card

Who wouldn’t love a cute, smiling pineapple??

I was inspired by some smiling pineapples on the Paper Smooches blog.

The Hero Arts pineapple is not quite so whimsical, but I think she pulls of the smile quite well!

Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz, Pixie Pink, inks – Copic Multiliner, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Pink Passion (retired), Pixie Pink (retired), VersaMark Onyx Black, dies – Hero Arts (pineapple), Taylored Expressions (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Snail Mail Note Card

YES, the retired Turtle & Co stamp set is still on my work table! (and I still haven’t finished my spring cleaning OR Mother’s Day cards! YIKES!)

I colored the snail with Copic markers, and added Glossy Accents to the shell (and a little bit of a slime trail).

My inner Star Wars geek has a message for you:  May the 4th be with you!

Supplies: Stamps – JustRite, Stampin’ Up!, paper – My Favorite Things Bundles of Blossoms, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pacific Point, Soft Sky, inks – Copic B0000, B00, B02, E51, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
