Triple Time Stamping: Napkin Card-No Stamping

I had time today to try and make the Triple Time Stamping technique using the napkin technique and no stamping.  I think the card turned out great.  It was a little more time consuming because I had to line up the image, but I think it looks great.
This is lots of fun to play with.  I will be posting more cards using different sizes.  Two posts in one day!  Have a great day and thanks for checking my blog.

A New Technique: Triple Time Stamping

I just wanted to show everyone a new technique (new to me) I learned for a Card Challenge in a Card Swap Group I am in.  It is called Triple Time Stamping and it's a lot of fun.  I just recently purchased some cover all stamps and they were perfect for this challenge. But you can use any stamps you have to make this card. 
 The stamp I used was a stamped image that was 5" x 6" so it easily covered the whole card.  I stamped the image in black ink and colored it in.  I haven't had time to play with the technique but I think it would look really great using different sizes for your layering.  I might even try something similar with a napkin card. 
 Here is the link for showing you the technique:
I also wanted to mention another website for everyone to check out.  It is  This is a new friend of mine and she has some great videos and ideas, not only for card making but all kinds of crafts.  Please check the website out and subscribe to her YouTube videos.  I think you will enjoy this site as much as I do.  She even showcased some of my cards on her web page!
Try this new technique and let me know if you have any questions.  It would be great if you posted your cards, too.  Leave a comment or email me at  Thanks for checking my blog and have a great day!

Feels like Fall

It certainly feels like fall outside today in Northern Ohio, so I thought I would post a few fall/Halloween cards.  It is fun to start working on cards for a new season.  Even though I hate to see summer go. 
A glitter napkin card I made for my grandson's birthday.  I love all the fall napkins that are out in the stores now. 
These two Halloween cards were made totally from a Halloween Embellishment Swap I was in.  Everyone had to send at least 5 embellishments to their swap partner and make cards using only the swap items.  I had a great partner and received lots of cool Halloween stuff.  I especially loved the idea that she sent gauze.  It makes a perfect embellishment.  I just inked it with a little red and orange ink.  I love the way it turned out.  The only thing on both of these cards that I already had is the card base.

I absolutely love this little pumpkin girl.  I colored her with Copic Markers and I think she turned out great. 
I hope I have inspired you to make some new cards for the new season.  If you have any questions or comments, be sure to leave them below or email me at  Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.  Remember, I also have plenty of cards for sale if you want one and don't want to make it.  Have a great weekend!

Challenge Cards

I have been having a lot of fun doing Challenge Cards I find on different groups.  These cards make you think out of the box and are a lot of fun.  I have posted two today.  I have been doing a Christmas Card Challenge making a card for each letter of Christmas.  We just finished Letter A-so when I complete them all I will post them together. 

This fist card, you had to make an animal card in a different shape besides the regular card shape.  I colored the bear, cut him out three times, and but this together.  I love the way it turned out.  The only trick to making a card like this is to make sure your image is symmetrical so you can fold it in half and the halves match up.

This card challenge was Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.  The card could not be a wedding card or you could not use one item for two categories.  In this card, the Something Old is the blue flower, Something New is the die cut I used to make this card, Something Borrowed was the flower picture which my sister took, and Something Blue was the navy blue decorative paper with the blue enamel dots.
Challenges are lots of fun!  Try a few.  If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below or contact me on my email at  Have a great day!!!

Birthday Cards


I hope everyone is having a great Labor Day Weekend!  I have been working on lots of things in the past week.  Challenge cards, birthday cards, and a new "My September" scrap book starts today.  I thought I would post a few miscellaneous birthday cards that I made for friends.  Enjoy!

 A fun birthday card for a friend's grandson who turned 1 in August.

 I used a napkin technique for this card.
 A 40th Birthday card!  I didn't want to make it black and dark.  Life is too good at 40!

A napkin birthday card for a dear friend.  I even used the napkin to make the envelope!
I hope you enjoyed looking at my cards!  Remember if you have any questions or comments, leave a comment below or email me at  Have a great day!  Thanks for checking my blog.
