Last card for Class

The last card for class.  This was done with distress inks but just ink to paper.  I love the way they blend together so nice.  The stars and the black scribble are from Papertrey Ink as is the sentiment.  I hope you like it.  I really like the colors of this one.  

Until next time, Happy trails to you!!!


Online Card Class

Here is another card I made during the card class.  These classes are amazing!  This was made on watercolor paper with distress inks and then the light droplets are water I tapped on the paper after the color was put on.  So what do you think?  I think I will do this again only maybe with a little softer colors.  This one is very bright and cheery!

Until next time, Happy trails to you

Stretch Your Stamps Second Card

I can't figure out how to use the same URL for two cards.  If anyone knows how, please email me!  Anyway this is the second card I made and the frame is the same but the word Smile and the butterflies are a different background stamp.  I like how bright and cheery this one is.
Thanks for looking!



I am taking another class at Online Card Classes called Stretch Your Stamps.  The first day was yesterday and I made two cards by using a background stamp, putting Versa Mark on it, and heat embossing.  Then I used Distress Inks to color them.  I like how the first one came out!

Until next time, happy trails to you

July 19 was the day our last grandbaby was born.  He is 10 years old now.  Where did the years go?  He is and always has been a little stinker and we love him dearly.  He is having a pool party this year so this was a perfect card to go along with the theme.  I colored it with my Copics and used a very old punch for the waves.  The image is a new one from Mo Manning.  Isn't it just adorable?  

Until next time, happy trails to you....

Cup of Tea and a Good Friend

When I was in Des Moines with my card group, I found this new Graphic Art paper and had to buy it.  I cut it into several pieces for several cards and added the bling and the flowers.  Added a ribbon strip across the front with a multi colored string.  Then cut a tag from a PTI die and cut the word Hello and popped it up on the card.  I think it came out nice and am anxious to play with the rest of the paper.

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Des Moines

My Yahoo group met from Sunday to Tuesday in Des Moines IA.  On Monday and Tuesday we went to Outstamping Designs and were lucky enough to be able to take an Anna Griffin class.  They were all done with embossing folders and die cuts.  It was an amazing class and we made these four beautiful cards.  Marj Huber and all of the ladies were such nice hostess' and we decided we would return again next year!  Get ready ladies!  Here we come!!

Until next time, happy trails to you!
