Triple Time Stamping

I have seen so many examples of this technique lately that I just had to give it a try for myself. It’s a quick and easy way to get a beautiful result. I will definitely will be making more of these!


Products used are all from Close To My Heart.

  • Cardstock ~ Black, White Daisy and Tulip
  • Inks ~ Black pigment ink and Black exclusive ink
  • Stamps ~ Potential (March 2012 SOTM) and Wonderland WOTG
  • Other ~ Clear embossing powder (for the sentiment)

Happy Crafting!



Mojo Monday #260

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve participated in any challenges and I’ve really missed it. I didn’t feel like folding laundry this afternoon, so I got crafty instead!


I cut the flowers and decorative square with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart. I used Chocolate cardstock and the Avonlea paper pack as well as our fabulous new burlap ribbon. A few Sparkles and a Bling Gem finish off this quick and easy card. The sentiment is from last year’s convention stamp set, Dreams. Ink colors are Chocolate and Juniper.

See you tomorrow with another creation from this afternoon. Now I need to go fold that laundry……

Happy Crafting!

My latest project

I just finished making this shadow box frame using the Bracket Frame from Close To My Heart and the La Belle Vie paper pack. It is embellished with the new Black Tulle Ribbon and Pearl Flourishes as well as some 3D flowers made with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

I love the way this came together and the way that it highlights this photo of my adorable granddaughter. If you would like to make one of these of you very own, I am offering a workshop on Sunday September 23 at 2:00. You can find details here. You can also contact me for more info. We will go through the creation process step by step. These would make treasured gifts! It’s not too early to start preparing for Christmas!

Happy Crafting!
