Do you ever "doodle" with watercolors? I'm not an expert at watercoloring at all, however, I do like to play with the technique in both the purest form and via watercolor stamping. Besides... they say practice makes perfect, so it never hurts to practice. But what to do with your little watercolors once you create them? I'm a big believer in passing on the happiness, so this bluebird was destined to become a card.



You can use any design you have created for this card. First I cut down the watercolor using my rectangle dies in my Cricut Cuttlebug. I also cut a coordinating color using a rectangle die one size larger than the design piece.

Cut a card base (in this case A2 sized white... 11" x 4.25" folded in half) and a piece of kraft paper cut 5.2…

My uncle is having a birthday, so I decided to make him a cheerful birthday card. I saw a card using Washi tape on Pinterest and decided to make something similar. Washi tape is fun to work with and it offers such a variety of colors and patterns.

To start with I stamped "Celebrate" from my CTMH stamp stash (S1803) and "Happy Birthday" from a Lawn Fawn set onto a scrap piece of white cardstock. I save all my scrap pieces of cardstock because I find I can use them for those bits and pieces needed when creating a card or scrapbook design.


While that slow drying pigment ink dried I prepared my card base using a piece of white cardstock cut 5.5" x 8.5". I scored it at 4.25" on my Scor-Buddy.

Next I stamped the inside sentiment. I wanted to be s…

Sometimes it is fun to make a card which requires patience and this card meets that criteria. My friend loves to quilt and gifted me a beautiful quilt a couple of years ago, so I decided to make her a birthday card quilt of paper! First I gathered supplies...

Paper: I chose a variety of 20 printed cardstock and paper scraps to make the quilt blocks with. The card base is made of white cardstock cut to 11" x 4.25" and a white piece cut 5" x 3.75" to glue the quilt squares to. I used a black piece of cardstock cut 5.25" x 4". Lastly, a strip of vellum cut 4.5" long (the width depends on the sentiment you want to use... simply allow about 0.25" clearance over and under the sentiment.)

Inks: VersaMark and Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

Other suppli…

I didn't do a lot of paper crafting this past week, but what a fun week we had! Family, friends and travel!
There are probably few things as sweet as quietly watching a 21-month-old feed ducks and fish. Our little granddaughter was mesmerized by the "Mommy Duck!" and "Daddy Duck!" even though the swan was right in front of her and desperately wanted her attention.

After our fun at the park we went out to lunch, then we had some sorbet on Beverly Street. Our little Sweetie really liked this part of the day!

Just like her grandmother, our baby likes to "cook"... in this case "cooking" means sitting on the counter and helping Grammy make tortillas. Her favorite part was putting the squishy balls of dough on the the tortilla press.
