Clean and Simple for Frid-yay!

It’s Friday.  I’m glad.  Are you glad? Anyhoo, my week got away from me.  Why does it do that??? Every time.  *sigh*

I’ve been meaning to share these cards from the January release:


I’m pretty doggone giddy to have whales now for my Stay Salty Set–they’re so fun together! Everything on this card was  stamped on watercolor paper and watercolored with Peerless Watercolors.  I free-hand drew the speech bubble around the sentiment and hand cut it inside the lines.

This penguin guy cracks me up!  The whooshing snow was made by spritzing Heidi Swapp Color Shine in White over the sponged blue ink.  Penguins were all stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, beaks colored in Golden Yellow Copic and bodies shadowed with Copic Cool Grey No. 1

The Strands die makes awesome little snow hills for the cheeky l’il penguins.  Better duck–snowball comin’ at ya’! ;)


See?  All super clean, super simple, super easy.  YASSSS!!!

Have a fabulous holiday weekend!

Mermaid 03

Sometimes, I watercolor a few quarter sheets of watercolor paper (it’s kinda therapeutic to slop watercolors around randomly with no end in mind) and just stash ‘em for a rainy day (or when the mojo goes AWOL). This one made a perfect ocean-like background to just stamp the tail over in a mid-tone green. *fist pump* White emboss a greeting on a scrap strip of vellum and wrap it around.  Add some Clear NUVO drops.


Before I knew what was happening, this card came together in 5. *fist pump* And a sentiment that makes me and m’ fellow mermaids chuckle? WIN!!! Every.Single.Time. ;)
