SOSS #209 - U for Underwater




I immediately thought of one of my snarky shark sets (That's right. I have more than one.  Wanna fight about it?)  The lights trailing from the great white's mouth cracks me up. Maybe a poor fisherman bit it (LOL) while decorating his boat or maybe the shark is getting ready to decorate his own abode. We'll just never know.

I lightly stenciled the corner of the card base, colored up the image with Copics and stamped the sentiment. Voila!

ATSM #428 - Birthdays


It's birthday time at Addicted to Stamps and More!  Birthday cards are the ones I make the most after holiday cards. Now if only I would remember to mail them!  LOL.


I used sprays on the background and set that aside to dry. I then took my new Art by Marlene neon paints (LOVE them--fantastic applicator and amazing coverage and more vibrant than the pic!) and added a few lines of paint to scrap cardstock then used my brayer to spread it. It dried pretty fast, just a couple-three minutes.  

I then stamped my images and fussy cut them out and adhered them to the background. I printed the sentiment on my printer and used a Copic Multiliner to outline the words.

DB - Lift Those Flappies


I'm over on the Doodlebugs WA blog with an ultra cute lift the flap card.  That little doxie is trying so hard to reach that critter!

Winter Sports


I thought about putting the bear on an action wobble then realized that would probably raise the cost of postage due to thickness.  I don't want to price myself out of sending holiday cards!

SOSS #208 - L for Layers


Oh my goodness, how I love the card I made for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #208 L for Layers.  One of my sistahs said I should have colored his "carrot" blue.  So true!  What a lost opportunity!


My card is full of layers:  multiple layers of gesso, ink, and paint along with paper layers and embossed layers too.

ATCAS #218 - One Layer Card


The latest Addicted to CAS Challenge is #218 One Layer. I used a Marvy Snow Marker that puffs up when you heat it but I'll still count it as one layer if you will (and even if you don't!).


I used an MFT bird that I've had in my stash a year or two, having purchased this during holiday sales in either 2019 or 2020.  Yikes!

Blueberry Tart--Yum!


Still absolutely loving the pie sets.  For the first card I made a ooey gooey blueberry tart and paired it with a square doily that was given to me years ago by a friend who I bet had it in her stash for years before that.



For the second card I did a similar but simpler treatment of a blueberry pie.  I prefer tarts over pies by a long shot, probably because there's less crust and they're simpler to make irl too.

ATSM #427 - Christmas


The prompt this round at the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #427 is Christmas.  Yay--building my Xmas stash!


This pile of cats and dogs--and I see a couple of birds--is so very cute!  I colored them up with Copics, accenting the Scotty with a paper-pieced sweater.


It was great fun too choosing the designer papers for this.  How convenient that my Doodlebugs palette was so matchy with the Sunny Studio ones.

Season's Tweetings


Not my usual color combo but sometimes you just need to add purple to your life. The triple layer sentiment was a boo boo.  I had intended the aqua on white but decided white would be better so added another layer on top.

Sweetie Pie


OMG, I couldn't believe my crafty eyes when I saw the new Spellbinders pie-related coordinating sets of stamps and dies. Fortunately, there was a sale going on at Scrapbook.com so I felt less guilty about my impulse buy. I know you know what I'm talking about!

I am actually a pie-hater (go ahead, flog me with a wet noodle) except perhaps for cherry pie every few years. Seriously. But that doesn't stop me from enjoying the pie puns in the Perfect Pie Sentiments & Filling stamp set. So fun!



I've listed ingredients (ha!) below as well as the other pie bits I bought but haven't used quite yet.

Sledding Girl


I discovered a stash of images ready to color so have been coloring away as time allows. Also, as energy allows. I'm glad the days are lengthening and I can start to emerge from my hibernation cave mode!

I'm entering this in Just Add Ink #598 Colors.
