   I have been waiting for something special so I could use my new stamp set from Heartfelt Creations!    I used a fun stamp set and die called Sugar Hollow Tree Cling Stamp Set and Die

I cut the tree three times and used pop dots to pop this up for a lot of fun dimension!  
Isn't that fun? 

II colored the image using my Copic alcohol ink markers.    
Love this stamp set and die!    

I hope you join us this week at Twisted Thursday!

You Light Up My Life - Sherri Baldy Release January 7, ,2016

Welcome to this weeks post  with a new release by Sherri Baldy at her My Besties Shop . 
 I used this adorable Bestie Image -  img955. 

 I want to try some new things this year so for this post, thought I would take one image and see if I cold get a really different look.    I thought it might  be a way to stretch some of those stamps and images.  

I colored the first with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers and for my background, I added some muted hearts with watercolor.   I added quilling on top of that.   I combined two types of quilling.....    Shaped rolls and also Chinese Quilling.   

When I was in Hawaii, I saw some beautiful quilled cards and the artist created a watercolor background to coordinate with her quilling.   I think I will be trying a lot of that this year...   now you know one of my personal resolutions for the year.   LOL.   This will help with my watercolor, sketching and quilling!  

For my second card, I used the same image but created a fireworks background that I learned at a Kit & Clowder Class.  I thought it would make a cute Valentine Day's Card (You light my life) or a great New Years or Fourth of July!    

Thank you for stopping by my blog!   I really appreciate it.   
I also have been posting some new  YouTube video's on Seasonal Tags and some involve quilling.    I would love for you to check out my YouTube Channel!   
Have a wonderful day!

Grow & Bloom

Hello and Happy Sunday!
We had some "much needed" rain today.   After the big fire - this is just what the doctor ordered!  
If we can just keep the flooding in check, we will be going good!    

And now, it's time for another new Release from Sherri Blady.  
This is a stamp set called Grow and Bloom.   

Grow & Bloom (Sherri Baldy's My Besties)

 Coloring Tutorial  in HD YouTube can be found HERE

I love the color combinations used in this image.   I used Copic Alcohol ink markers and I have them all listed in the video .  

Take care and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!  

Happy Haunting!


First I want to apologize for the delay in posting .    My area County was devastated with the second wort fire in the history of California.     As you may know, I work as an RN Patient Care Coordinator in an Emergency Department but I have been spending my time off helping with the victims of the fire.   Things will take a long time to recover - but the infrastructure of rebuilding is now in place and the process that will take a few years has started.  

And now to introduce you to Sherri Baldy[s newest SVG  file that can be found HERE. 

 I used my Cameo to cut the files.   Vintage Photo Distress Ink was used to sponge the edges!  
What an easy halloween Card!!!   This is a card that can also be used as a Fall Card by changing the sentiment!  

Thank you for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
