GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with a new card featuring the Hyacinth Bulb in Glass Digital Stamp by Power Poppy. As you can see, I’m finally moving away from holiday cards and starting to color spring flowers again.

My style tends to be clean and simple although lately I’ve been experimenting with more complex designs. However, I wanted this image to be front and center without distraction so I stuck to a relatively simple layout.
And be sure you take a look at the Power Poppy projects from my teammates in the Bloom Brigade!

MORNING EVERYONE! I’m back today with my project for the 100 Moons Creative Design team which is a creative collaboration between RubberMoon stamps, ArtFoamies, and 100 Proof Press. But first – some exciting news from the homefront!
I’ve not done much coloring lately because we’ve been preparing for a home renovation project. As many of you know, I live in a nineteenth century Baltimore rowhouse that I usually describe as having been built before the invention of closets. When my husband bought in the house twenty years ago, it had two small closets, both of which were narrower than the width of a hanger. You can imagine what it was like to hang clothes!
When we got married, we had to merge two households together which made the storage problem even worse. Luckily, we have a basement, but who wants to go to the basement every morning to get dressed? We removed the two existing closets and used wardrobes to store our belongings. The solution worked for a few years, but it was becoming obvious that we needed to do something else.
So we contracted with California Closets and had a designer take a look at the space. Last Thursday, they installed five cabinets — three clothes closets and two storage cabinets — in our second bedroom so that we now have a functional dressing room. After we put our clothes and other stuff away, we still had one completely empty cabinet. So I claimed it as my craft closet and I’ve been happily organizing it (and quickly filling it) with fun stuff! I can’t promise that it will always look this organize, but it’s great to finally have space that looks good and can be closed off from curious cats.

Create a die cut tag from coordinating solid card stock. For the paper, I used an MFT cardstock that has from my stash that has been retired. For the die, I used Sizzix’s Dotted Tag which has also been retired, but I linked below to Sizzix’s Stitched Border Tag which is similar.

GOOD AFTERNOON FRIENDS! I’m back today with my entry in the Clean & Simple Genius category for the MFT 2020 Card Design Superstar Challenge. I don’t participate in many card challenges, but this one just resonates with me so I give it a try every year.
Clean & Simple Genius Entry
For my entry, I used an older stamp – You Gnome Me – along with its coordinating dies. This is an older stamp that has been retired, but it is a particular favorite of mine. I selected one of the gnome images and colored it along with one of the snails with Copic markers (see list below). For the sentiment, I inked up the Here’s A Huge Hug stamp with black ink and stamped it on a piece of Sweet Tooth cardstock. I selected the pattern papers from the Sweet Celebrations and the Black & White Stripes 6×6 paper packs. For the background, I used Grout Gray cardstock, also by My Favorite Things.
That’s it for me today! See you next time.
