Eve was invited to a birthday party last weekend, for two of the girls in her class. I figured that was as good as time as any to break out the Pony Party stamp set! Pink, Purple, and Ponies — really, what could be bad? Here’s what I came up with:


Stamps: Party Pony
Ink: StazOn Black, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper
Other: Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch

If that doesn’t scream 7-year-old girl, I don’t know what does.

It is my sister-in-law’s birthday on Monday (in addition to my niece’s) and just like Eve made a birthday card for Sophia with this week’s Saturday Sketch Challenge, I made one for Abby.

She loves purple and cats, so what could be better than combining them?


Stamps: C is for Cat, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Whisper White, Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon

Come back later in the week to see the coordinating stationary set I made her as well.

Eve, who is 6 1/2, decided to give the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge a try this morning. She wanted to make a card for her cousin Sophia who will be 2 on Monday. She liked this sketch a lot.


What could be better for her two-year-old cousin than a Build-a-Bear card? Eve did all of the designing, stamping, and coloring herself. I just helped by cutting the layers.


Stamps: Beary Best Friends, Beary Nice Wishes
Ink: Basic Black, Orchid Opulence, Pixie Pink
Paper: Pixie Pink, Lovely Lilac, Whisper White, Pawsitively Prints, Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons

I love stamping with Eve! She’s so much fun — and talented and creative besides!

Paper: Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper

Flower Fancy

I am excited to be accompanying the 4th graders once again this year on their service learning trip to visit Senior Citizens at the Jewish Home for the Aging.  For their first trip, the fourth graders will be making cards with their senior buddies. This gives them a nice project to do together, and leaves the seniors with cards that they can send. Below is the first card they will be making. Each person will be able to use their choice of sayings from the Sincere Salutations set, to make the card one they can use.

CIMG8417Stamps: Flower Fancy, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Regal Rose, So Saffron, Old Olive, Basic Black
Paper: Regal Rose, Old Olive, Whisper White

This is an easy two-step stamp set, because the outlines do not need to be exact to look great. I recommend stamping the insides first.

The Pals Paper Arts challenge this week is a sketch challenge. I gave it try yesterday, while making my husband Steve his birthday card. (I figured I better take advantage of his going fishing for the day and get his birthday card done!)


As I tried to figure out what to put in the three circles, my mind kept on drifting back to the Beer mug in Cheers to you. It was a touch big, but ended up working perfectly. I popped them up on Dimensionals. I also embossed the chocolate chip cardstock with the Perfect Details Texturz plate. One of the tips for getting a deeper impression with the Texturz plate is to spritz your card stock with water first, before running it through the Big Shot. I gave this piece a few good spritzes, and it worked great!


Stamps: Cheers to You, Heard from the Heart
Ink: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard
Paper: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Whisper White
Accessories: 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Earth Elements Brads (More Mustard)
