Cards in Envy Feeling Blue and "Distressed"



We start a new Cards in Envy challenge late late tonight my time!  We'd like to see lots of blue Distress Ink/Oxide on your card although I bet we'd not notice if it was some other blue ink!  ;-)

I have had this card in my head for months and months. Seriously. I cut the MB Underwater Collage die out of scrap paper and used the negative as a stencil to create the pool using Distress Oxide Mermaid Lagoon. Then I colored up the sweet, sweet popsicle floatie image (maybe you guess my favorite fruit flavor is orange?) and plopped her right in the middle.  I few sequin water droplets and the sentiment and I've got the makings for a really cute make n take for my crafty girlfriends.  Woo hoo!

The Details:  Love Cynthia Girls Just Wanna Have Sun, MFT Polynesian Paradise (sentiment), Memory Box Underwater Collage die, Distress Oxide Mermaid Lagoon, Copics, Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins, Ranger Multi Medium Matte, Memento Tuxedo Black

SOSS #112 - Q is for Quote


This round at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #112 we'd like to see a quote on your card. Whatever you like. For my card I (mis)quoted my doctor. You know how you hear what you want to hear? Yeah, totally that! I love the juxtaposition of the calming yoga pose and background against the quote and spatters of blood. I dare you to tell me I'm not reducing stress! LOL.



The Details:  Simon Says Work Out, Riley and Co Funny Bones sentiment, Craftin Desert Divas stencil, Avery Elle Pierced Cloud dies, Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber and Salty Ocean, Distress Ink Candied Apple, Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

CDD June Release Day 5

On the last day of the CDD June release sneaks, we're featuring my favorite of the bunch, the Fintastic Friends set. So flippin' cute! 


I created a slider for my first card.  I love how the submarine boop boop boops across the card.  Check my IG account for a video (I hope--the cat kept trying to head-bump me so I need to remove the cursing--LOL).

The Details:  CDD Fintastic Friends, Waving Hello, Mermaid Trolls, Merman Lagoon, Ocean Border Dies, Distress Oxide Salty Ocean, Broken China and Twisted Citron, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder and Multi Medium Matte, Copics


For my second card I created an underwater Christmas scene.  So cute!  I used the tree from the Scene Builder dies for the "tree."  And isn't scuba-diving troll Santa adorable?  I thought about adding a beard by using his hair (picture it--it would totally work!) and then his hair I would color red for his hat.  Ack, next time!

The Details:  CDD Fintastic Friends, Christmas Wishes, Scene Builder Dies, Star and Moon Dies, Party Dies, Beach Scene, Scenery Dies, Ranger Glossy Accents, Distress Oxide Salty Ocean, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder, Copics

Stay Cool, Dude


Gosh, so many people are leaving our office lately.  I made this card for a young man who is leaving us to enter med school.  Stupid new opportunities. LOL.   This card is so him.  And so fun!

CDD June Release Day 3

We are on day 3 of the CDD June release and featuring the CDD Mermanimal set. Lots of nautical goodness coming your way for sure!  Everything will be available this Friday, June 15, so best start your wish lists so you can grab your favorites before they're sold out.


My first card features a sentiment from the upcoming CDD Mermanimal set. I love that font and the splash marks which pair perfeclty with the Mermaid Tail Die.

The Details:  CDD Mermanimal, Mermaid Tail Dies, Ranger Multi Medium Matte, VersaFine Onyx Black, Ken Oliver Color Burst Splash 6x6 Paper


Next I was inspired to create a card featuring the siren monkey from the CDD Mermanimal set. Sirens were mythological creatures, often portrayed now as mermaids, that would sing and lure sailors to their deaths. Yeah, not exactly a fun idea but perfect for a cute card!  I took a sheet of music and sponged Distress Oxides right over the top then spattered with water. I then made some waves (ha!) and rocks for the siren to perch on as she sings. The sentiment is so punny to me in this case:  "hey there, cutie, come on over here and be my lunch."  LOL

The Details:  CDD Mermanimal, Friend in Me, Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies, Scenery Dies, Fancy Frames Dies, Ocean Border Dies, and Island Dies, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder, Distress Oxide Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, and Squeezed Lemonade, Copics
