I love the patterned paper that came in the September Spellbinders card kit of the month. The flowers on this card are metallic gold. The stamp set that came with the kit has a bunch of mix and match sentiments. There a lot of useful sentiments that you can put together to make tons of cards.

This is one card that I made for my YouTube card making tutorial with 5 cards from 1 kit using the September 2019 card kit of the month from Spellbinders. I normally keep my posts straight and to the point and leave my personal stuff out of them, but today I decided to put a little of my truth in my post.

I am having a difficult day today. Three years ago today, my oldest son had his first seizure at the age of 8. It turned our lives upside down. It was and continues to be an extremely difficult day for our family. About six months later he passed away. His passing was out of the blue and unrelated to seizures. According...

Today's Halloween card uses an ink blending technique to make a night sky with a glowing moon using the Fun Stampers Journey inks. The stamps are from Fun Stampers Journey/Spellbinders stamp set "Hey Boo!" I love that it looks like the moon is glowing. This bat is so adorable. I have a few more cards coming soon with this same bat.

I love to make Halloween cards during the fall. I wanted to do some ink blending with fall colors for this Halloween card. The stamp set that I used is Hey Boo! from Fun Stampers Journey/Spellbinders. This stamp set has so many cute stamps, I made several cards using the bats, spiders, and Happy Halloween sentiment. I will be writing a blog post about those in a few days :)

We had perfect fall weather this weekend for some Halloween card making. I think this kitty is just too cute and it's super simple to make. I just recently got this stamp set. It has so many cute Halloween images. This is Fun Stampers Journey Hey Boo Stamp Set.

The card base is a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Fun Stampers Journey Citrus Cooler Cardstock.

I used my Fancy Label Dies (2 of the different sizes) to cut a piece of Citrus Cooler and Black Licorice cardstock. This created a frame around the kitty.

I stamped the cat, Boo Sentiment, and spiderweb on a whip cream cardstock panel using Black Licorice Ink. This panel would be...

I recently purchased the Starry Night Project Kit from Fun Stampers Journey/Spellbinders. I thought the Space Galaxy Stamp was really cute and I am always looking for stamps that could work for a guy or girl. I created the background by blending out four different colors using blending brushes. I have posted the video below as well as the products that I used. In the product listing, I included the Space Galaxy Stamp alone as well as the Starry Night Project Kit which includes the Space Galaxy Stamp.

1.) Blend out FSJ Lemon Drop Ink over the whole cardstock.

2.) Blend out FSJ Grape Fusion Ink starting around the outside an...

I have had this stamp set for quite a while. I loved the bicycle stamp, but wasn't sure how to use it on a card. I decided to go with the sentiment 'Just a card to say hello and you're amazing." The stamp set is from Simon Says Stamp, the patterned paper is from Simple Stories, and the ink that was used is from Stampin' Up!. I was really happy how well the colors of the patterned paper and the ink went together.

I needed a thinking of you card for a man. I normally go straight to flowers for most of my cards, but I wanted something less flowery. I decided to go with leaves. I also went with a green and gray color scheme. Gray is so much softer looking than black and I felt like it was fitting for a thinking of you card. 

Some of the Stampin' Up items used to make this card include:

SU! Smokey Slate Ink and Cardstock
SU! Mint Macaron Ink and Cardstock
