Stuck on You Desert Card

I used this as one of my punny Valentine cards – but it works for a LOVE card, too.

Lots of masking to stamp the cacti and succulents, with a touch of Copic coloring to fill in.

After a month of trying, I was able to schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for both of my parents (in their mid 80’s). We go this week for shot #1, and then again the last week of March for shot #2.

Now I get to figure out the scheduling system in my in-laws home state.

Supplies:  Stamps – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Wild Wasabi, inks – Copic B0000, E51, E53, Gina K. Designs Jelly Bean, Key Lime, Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass, Mermaid, Merman, Taylored Expressions Lime Zest, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.


Let’s Venti Note Card

I stumbled upon this paper pieced coffee cup in one of my folders and I had to use it.

Longing for a time when we can say, “Meet me at Barnes & Noble to catch up!”

Supplies:  Stamps – Avery Elle, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop Tone Sour Apple, Reverse Confetti From Cupid, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Avery Elle (coffee cup), Spellbinders (circle).
