In these crazy times I needed an escape, this normally means doing something creative. I had my kiddos color some shamrocks. Trying to keep them busy doing fun and educational stuff while they are out of school. I decided to make another St. Patrick’s Day graphic using the Procreate App on my iPad. Hope you enjoy it. Have a safe and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Do something fun and creative! You can also. Find me on IG @elephantshoecorner

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to make a fun graphic. I made this using the Procreate App on my iPad. I hand lettered the wording and drew the shamrocks. I had a lot of fun playing with the lettering and intertwining the flourishes. Very new to lettering, drawing, and the iPad, but having so much fun learning it all!

Hey Everyone!  I’ve been having so much fun playing with the Procreate App on my IPad. Since today is the first day of March, I thought I could try to hand letter the month.  The word ‘March’ looked a little lonely and I wanted to add something to it.  I do not draw, but I wanted to try something new.  I found that the birth month flower for March is the daffodil. March isn’t my birth month, but I thought a daffodil would go great with my lettering. Happy Birthday to all of the March birthdays out there! I hope you enjoy! I normally post my daily lettering to my IG page. You can check it out @elephantshoecorner...

It has been a long time! The holidays are a tough time and I have really struggled with doing anything lately. I haven’t done any paper crafting lately, haven’t made any cards, haven’t made any new YouTube videos. As some of you may know, my oldest son passed away almost three years ago. Some days the depression hits harder than others. Trying to get out of my funk and get inspired to do anything has been difficult lately. Normally crafting has been like therapy to me. Making myself get into my craft room to create has been a struggle, not to mention it’s messy and I need to clean up in order to make room so I can create...

I love blending with my Tim Holtz Oxides, so I decided to do some blending on one of the watercolor cards that came in the Simon Says Stamp November Kit. I don't normally do any water coloring so this is some very basic water coloring. I also did some masking and ink blending on this card.

 I made these cards and video last week right before Halloween, but didn't get around to editing and doing the voice over until this week. We had a lot of fun over Halloween, but it was super busy. My kiddos were adorable! Luckily, they stayed warm. It was quite chilly Trick or Treating here in Iowa. Now that Halloween is over, I am really in the mood for Christmas cards, especially since we are now seeing snow here. Excited for Christmas, but I could do without the ice and snow!

I use some different techniques on these cards including ink blending, water coloring, different ways to use patterned paper, and Copic colorin...

I bought this Ornament Glimmer Plate a while ago, but just wasn't ready to get started on Christmas cards. I love the ornament, and with all of the different colors of foils that you can buy, you can get so many different looks. I hope you find some inspiration!

I was super excited when I received the Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month, Sparkling Holidays. It feels early for Christmas Cards, but we are already half way through October. If I dont get started soon, I will not have my cards ready to send to family and friends. So....I need to start early. It was hard to get in the Christmas mood, so I watched one of my favorite Christmas movies, Trading Christmas. After that I didn't want to stop making Christmas cards. I hope you find some inspiration.

This card making tutorial shows a fun and easy way to foil your card using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System. I love foil on my cards and this system makes it so easy. I also purchased some Christmas Glimmer Plates for my Christmas cards. I am planning to make a Christmas Card video soon using the Glimmer System. Can't wait to play with the Glimmer System more!

I got the Simon Says Stamp  October 2019 card kit in the mail last week and couldn't wait to make some cards. I really had fun getting out my Copics to color some flowers. I made a tutorial video with all of these cards. I hope you love it.

The Simon Says Stamp September 2019 card kit inspired this background. I love making my own backgrounds, especially with Distress Oxides Inks. They are so pretty and easy to use.

It's always nice to tell someone 'Thank You' with a card. This card has beautiful white flowers with some gold accents in the patterned paper which is layered on a metallic gold paper. A simple card, but so pretty.

This card is one of the cards that I made in my 5 cards 1 kit video using the Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month - Express Yourself.

Pets are like part of the family. A friend suffering the loss of a pet would appreciate a special sympathy card. This card has several different dogs in the background making it a perfect sympathy card for a friend who is suffering the loss of their dog. 

The layout of this card could be used in many different ways. Different colors, different patterned papers, different sentiments.....so many different options with this card layout.

This card is super simple and I love the colors. Hopefully, sympathy cards are not something you need to have too often, but it is always good to have one on hand. This simple layout can alos be used with any sentiment.
