UWF HA -001-je

For this one, I had all the pigeons hanging out on telephone lines in the city–I love using that pattern from the Modern Graphics Paper Pack to simulate skyscraper windows!  :)



And on this one, I made a floating window effect for the love-birds to cuddle on.

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!

Just S’whale…


In my world, there can be rainbow whales.  Glittery rainbow whales.  It’s a rare and unique species of whale. *big cheesy grin*  I borrowed the clouds from Stay Salty.  I love loVE LOVE mixing these two sets together!



I used the die cut pieces from the Strands Die (from this Narwhal card); by mounting them to a piece of clear plastic I could hide foam tape behind and pop it up for a floating/dimensional effect.  Gotta love when you can get a two-fer, right?! *fist pump*  I just hand-drew a wonky speech bubble around the sentiment and cut it out–I thought it gave the card a fun extra visual element.

I’ll share more ideas in the coming days–hope these inspire for now!
