Do you have Nuvo Drops or Stickles in your paper crafting stash? I love playing with these products when I'm crafting.

Lots of pink Nuvo Crystal Drops on this card!
They add so much shine and dimension to a project. However... have you ever used them for other than making "dots"? If not you might want to try this fun technique... watch my video for details...



Here are a few pictures of what you see in the video so you can see the detail of the "enameling"up close...

How have you been doing as we all stay home and stay safe? Are you getting a lot of crafting done? I have. I thought I might play "catch up" with you all and post a few pictures of some of what I've been doing these days...

Of course, this terrible pandemic has been front and center on the minds of so many of us... including mine. My art journal has been a great outlet for me to vent my frustrations regarding this Covid-19 experience going on all over the world. I've released my "dark feelings" as well as feelings of encouragement.

Of course I have been trying to send ca…

Don't you simply love gift tags!?! I do! You can use them as journaling cards in scrapbooks, or embellishments on a handmade card, bookmarks or as actual gift tags! I've put together a video using the June 2020 Stamp of the Month (SOTM) from Close to my Heart (CTMH) to showcase a super easy ink blending technique on gift tags. I will list supplies I used below the video but you can always use the supplies you already have in your stash!



For my gift tags I used:

Exclusive Inks - Choose the colors you like the best and don't forget the black ink, too!White Daisy Cardstock - Gift tags are a great way to use scrap pieces of cardstock.Sponge Daubers Value Pack - I am using old daubers in the video, but these would work great!Stamp Sham…

Then I got busy blending some ink...



While that background ink dried I started to work on my hummingbird. I used my new Sweet Hummingbird Stamp + Thin Cuts (Z3725) for this card design.

First I stamped the hummingbird in blac…

Do you miss wandering around the craft supply stores? Are you lacking some inspiration for your next paper crafting project? This pandemic has us all staying home and using our currently available paper crafting supplies so I thought I would offer a fun stamping challenge to you for inspiration!
Here is how it works... pull out four or five stamp sets you seldom use (whatever you have in your stash), then drop them into a bag... reach in... pull out the first stamp set your fingers touch. No going back! You have to use that one!
Now... take that one stamp set and create three cards and/or scrapbook layouts using three different techniques. You can add whatever embellishments you want to, you can use any paper or cardstock you want to, you ca…
