 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!

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.

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 :)
