Set of 3 Using 3


I've taken some time to stamp up a trio of cactus cards.

It started with one card...

Reverse Confetti Multi-Step Cacti,  SugarPea Designs Greatest Hits sentiment, Pretty Pink Posh Mini Storybook 1 Die

and grew to a trio!

This combo of supplies from three different companies play so well together:

Reverse Confetti images, SugarPea Designs sentiments and Pretty Pink Posh dies. ;)

Little tip: flip the pot over to the back and ink it up for "color".

You can do that with images that are symmetrical. 

This last one has pots stamped on colored cardstock: super easy.

Avo Masculine


 I kid you not when I say I've hunted for a nice avocado stamp for YEARS.

Look what Colorado Stamp Company came up with!!

So many possibilities...I went graphic like a t shirt.



Colorado Craft Company Avocado Love, Copics (YR23,E00,RV95,B23,BG57,BG09,G99,G94,BG72,R56,YR24,YR21,YR82,V12,YG91,R20,RV99), Reverse Confetti Sun & Sea Paper Pad, Brutus Monroe Cardstock (Marsala, Midnight), Papertrey Ink Saffron Spice Cardstock


I masked the seeded image so that the leafy avo would have a center as well.

Lovely Princess

 I'm still taking coloring classes at Kit and Clowder. ;)

This past month was a beautiful princess.

At first my husband snickered a little (he's always supportive, by the way); he thought it was so "cute" I was coloring a princess.


Anyhoo, he snickered NO MORE when he saw the finished result.


Conie Fong Princess Kiara Fairytale Castle (Kit and Clowder class), Heidi Swapp Lovely die, Tonic Studios Marina Mist Mirror Cardstock



He was super impressed!

He couldn't believe I colored this~

I'm grateful Alyce  breaks the classes into sections.

I've taken chapter by chapter, so as not to be overwhelmed.
