Card Making, Outline Stickers

March Stinkin’ Inkers Challenge

This month’s challenge over at Stinkin’ Inkers is to use something that hops on your card. Of course I immediately thought of bunnies for this time of the year, but going through my stash I had to pull out one of my favorite items to craft with — OUTLINE Stickers. Here is my card.

I used the Frog outline stickers from Krazy Kreations. Adhered the frog to glitter paper, colored with copics, I added the reeds and lilly pad directly to the card and colored those with colored pencils. I fuzzy cut out the frog and adhered him to the card using a small wobble.

The paper was in my stash, and I embossed the clouds just above the images. I added the sentiment and a few more embellishments.

Stinkin Inkers May 2020 Challenge

I pray that all of you are keeping safe.

I am spending lots of time in my craft room and I am finding so many things that have gone by the wayside. Today I found a box of “Outline Stickers” which I haven’t used in quite some time.

May’s Stinkin Inkers Challenge is all about BAGS. Create a gift bag, tote or purse.

I love outline stickers and used the negative space of this sticker (Elizabeth Craft Designs) to create the focal point of my card. I used transfer tape to take off the negative space and applied it to an embossed piece of cardstock (Cuttlebug Embossing Folder no longer available). The additional stickers are all outline stickers. Loved how this card came together with all supplies in my stash.

Stay safe my friends and be blessed.

Up In The Air

Our oldest son lives in a rural area and close to a little airport that offers hot air balloon rides (no thank you). When we visit when it is getting closer to sunset we like to sit out on his deck and watch the hot air balloons. They are so beautiful and peaceful to look at.

Tuesday Throwdown‘s current challenge is Up In The Air. Here is my card.


Here is a close up showing all the sparkle.


I used an outline sticker from Krazy Kreations adhered it to glittered cardstock (SSS) and colored it with copic markers. Sometimes the sticker doesn’t adhere very well but I add the smallest amount of glue to help it along. Then I fussy cut it out. The cloud paper was from my stash and I ran it through the cuttlebug using the birthday embossing folder (my favorite). The critters are from Your Next Stamp and the grass is a stamp from Stamps by Judith.

I am a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids and this will be going to them.

Outline Stickers

I purchased a kit from Krazy Kreations because I wanted to try out coloring with copics on glitter paper. I really enjoyed it. The glitter paper is quite expensive and I have read on some blogs and reviews that you can ruin your copics by coloring on glitter paper. I tried it anyway and I figure I can always replace the nibs if they get too worn out.  Here is the card:

I adhered the shoes, broom and stars to the glitter paper, colored them with copics and then fussy cut them out.  So what I learned from purchasing this kit is that I still love, love, love outline stickers, I can’t spend that much money for glitter paper, and using microfine glitter and burnishing it in and all that business is just too, too messy for this card maker.

I would like to participate in the following challenges:

Glitter and Sparkle Challenge – Black and Purple
Dragonfly Journeys – #103 Orange and Black
A Gem of A Challenge – Spots Stripes or Halloween
All Sorts Challenge – Halloween

Thanks for stopping by.

Cute Birthday Dog

I created this Birthday Card for SAS4KIDS a few weeks ago and I liked how cute it turned out and thought it would be great for one of the younger patients at the hospitals I ship to.

The cute little dog and gem are from Stamps of Life, the greeting is an outline sticker, the Cardstock is from MFT and the paper is from Stampin’ Up (very old).

I would like to participate in the following challenges:

The Cutie Pie Challenge – Think Pink
Seize the Birthday – Anything Goes

For Moms From The Kids

Challenge over at SAS4KIDS is calling for cards for mom that would be coming from the child. Between the two hospitals that I ship for there are about 210 kids, and our faithful card makers never let us down. I had this peel off sticker purse (Elizabeth Crafts), that I had already colored using SAKURA glaze and glitter pens. The sentiment is from Just Rite stamps and the papers are from Stamps of Life.

Needless to say this will be going to SAS4KIDS.  I would also like to enter the Cardz 4 Galz challenge (handbags and gladrags), Double “D” Challenge (neon/bright colors), Always for Fun challenges #1 (Anything Goes).

My Niece Kate

Today’s card is for my niece Kate. Kate just turned 11 and she is a ray of shineshine. Her smile lights up a room. She is incredibly wise and talented in everything she does. And she wants to try everything. When she plays the violin she gives me the chills – “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” is my fav. She plays baseball, basketball and her skills on the swim team are awesome. She also plays the drum and can carry quite the tune. Happy Birthday my darling niece Kate.

kate-may-2015-birthday-2A simple card. Used Chevron paper from Recollections, Happy Birthday die cut from Stamps of Life, Birthday word is an outline sticker as well as the sequins.

My Favorite Things, Outline Stickers


My niece’s birthday was April 9th. I have to tell you a little bit about her. She has become an incredible young woman with vision, drive, tenacity, love, kindness and the most beautiful smile. She finished college early and is now studying to become a chiropractor. She is the oldest child of my youngest brother Bill and sister in law Linda. When Linda went back to work many years ago I cared for Bridgette her first year and I have to tell you she was the most pleasurable baby. Her smile and laughter were as infectious as they are now. Happy Birthday Bridgette. I love you. Stay the course. Here is the card I made for her: bridgette-2015-birthday I used outline stickers from Elizabeth Crafts and colored in with copic markers. Those gems are actually stickers — from Dazzles. Thanks for stopping by.

Fall Cards

The Midweek Throwdown Challenge at OWH this week is for fall cards. So here are a few I have been working on. Also, please forgive me but I am learning how to add links in my posts, so if it doesn’t work — blame it on the learning curve (I’m actually only trying it on one link).

For these three cards I used the adorable digi images from Sassy Cheryl’s Stamps. The little boy is Noah and the little girl is Sally. I used copics to color them.


The papers on this card are digi papers from Doodle Pantry:



This card I embossed the GinaK Design tropical flowers in black and sponged the background in Memento Morocco, punched the corners and layered on white, layered on black and layered on GinaK Design Sweet Mango card stock, my card base is white. I used tiny black brads in the corners. I think this qualifies as a “FALL CARD” because of the colors.


This last card I used the same flowers and black embossing and used MFT Dienamics Blueprints 3 (which I love, love, love) to die cut the shapes. I also like using the Elizabeth Craft outline stickers (pumpkin) which is colored with Sakura Gel pens on acetate.

Autumn Cards and Sketch #182

Yes that’s right. I am in the process of creating Autumn cards for OWH. They will be due the end of next month. So I started with Sketch 182.

owh sketch canvas copy

For the card I used score lines starting right to left (instead of left to right – by accident) and stamped the leaves in between the score lines. I used an outline sticker of the pumpkin on acetate, colored it with Sakura glaze pens cut it out with a circle die. Cut a slightly larger circle die out of cardstock and mounted the pumpkin with pop dots onto the cardstock.
