Okay, here's my problem...

Here's my problem, which is why I haven't started a card blog until now...I stink at photography.  I got a great new camera for Christmas, and I'm excited to see if I can do better (or the camera can help me) with taking pictures of my cards.  I'm always so disappointed when I see my cards on my monitor, because I think they look so much better in real life.  I'm working on some editing with Picassa, so hopefully that helps, and I've learned a few tricks from friends on the PTI forum (thank you!).

In the meantime, you should just come over and see them in person.  I will feed you cookies.


  1. If you are taking a close up picture, you should always use the Macro function, that makes the picture very clear.

  2. I love Picasa!!! I take all my pictures on my floor in front of my sliding glass door. The natural light makes the colors on your look 'true to life'. I don't have to adjust my card much, just cropping it. Hope that helps.

Birthday Card for My Sister

I made this birthday card for my sister, and I love how it turned out.  This large stamp is from Concord & 9th, called Hello, Lovely.  I colored it with Altenew's new markers, then added touches of a gold Wink of Stella marker.  I didn't want the sentiment to compete with the image, so I embossed it in gold on vellum.  Beautiful stamp!

This stamp is called Never Regret Being Kind. (Keep hopping, and you'll see more!)

One of the things I love most about this hobby is that it is inherently kind.  So what could be better than a stamp that encourages even more kindness?  Such a great sentiment!

This stamp is easy to use as the focal point of a easy, in fact, that I made 4 right out of the gate!  Each one uses a different technique--this stamp is so versatile.

For my first, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on steel grey cardstock.  I then colored over the embossing with my Copics for a multicolored effect…

Fresh Cut Poppies

I love poppies.  Every time I see a poppy stamp set, I am drawn to it.  I've had my eye on this set from The Ton for a while, and I was lucky enough to borrow it from a friend.  It is really easy to line up the layers, and I love the realistic look.
The sentiment is from Right At Home, and I happen to really love the quote and its author

He really did.  I'm so glad.
