Hero Arts – Sending Rainbow Hugs

Hello friends!

Like many of you, I really love rainbow cards – especially during these difficult times. Rainbow colors just make me happy! 🙂 So today I have a card for you using emboss resist and a little rainbow watercoloring with Distress Ink reinkers. I only have a couple of those reinkers but they are super easy to use and I forgot how vibrant the colors are!

I used a couple of small stamps for this card, all from Hero Arts “Acts Of Kindness” stamp set. Hope you like it!

Altenew – Ditsy Print Card

Hello friends!

Today I want to show you this card using Altenew stamps. I was in the mood for a CAS (clean and simple) card design and pimped it with just a bit of heat embossing and three enamel dots. 😀 Take a look yourself:

Also, I used only two stamp sets (Ditsy Print and Label Love) and no dies on this card which was a great way to limit my supplies for a change! The card follows a couple of challenges that you will find below in case you want to check them out.

Thank you for stopping by! ♥

A Dose of Vitamin SEA with Picket Fence and WOW Embossing (Blog Hop & Giveaway)

Hi there and welcome! It’s been a while! I am honored to be back with a blog post as part of the WOW Embossing and Picket Fence Studios collaboration hop! There are so many talented crafters involved, I am very excited!



As I have already told my followers on Instagram (probably more than once! lol) that I love the ocean and everything about it. I also love whales and have been fortunate enough to see some in real life. They amaze me. ♥ So when I got invited to this hop, I knew right away I wanted to make a card with Picket Fence’s “A Dose Of Vitamin Sea” stamp set! I love not only the whale images but the great sentiments in it. I also got this holiday stamp set from Picket Fence that has Santas and penguins in it. Being the excited crafty girl that I am I showed both of them to my husband when they arrived and it was actually him that came up with the idea to combine those two sets! (I know, totally surprising to me, too! 😀 ) So, thank you, hubby! ♥

Here is my card:

Picket Fence A Dose Of Vitamin Sea Card 1

For the fontain I used WOW’s light blue Metalline First Frost Embossing Powder. I added a bit of sparkle to the watercolored water using an embossing pen and WOW’s Singing In The Rain Embossing Glitter.

I love how the penguin is floundering about in the fountain of the whale! They look like they have a blast, don’t they?
