June Calendar Page

I'm sharing my June calendar page with you today. Happy June!! Just a simple stamped image for this month. It did take a while to make fifteen of them, though. The rubber stamp is an ancient one from Darcie's. I colored with Copic markers.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Happy Birthday, Jonah!

I've seen this style of card around different places, and finally decided to make one. It was surprisingly easy! This is for our grandson, Jonah, who will be eight on the 31st. The papers are all from the same paper pad - an oldie that I got at Michael's many years ago. The sentiment is from a Maya Road set. The little monsters are from the same paper stack. 

Edited to add: Here is a link to the video I watched to make this card. I'm sure there are other places as well.

I think I'm going to be taking a break for a while. I just don't have time to spend in my stamping room, it seems. Always somethings going on. We bought season passes for golf, and I'm golfing just as much as I can! We still haven't played even one game of pickleball, though. :-(


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Five Very Similar Cards

All five of these cards are three and a half inches by six and a quarter inches. They all use papers from the same tiny paper package of four by four papers. (Thanks, Vicki!) I added thin strips of black between the patterns. The sentiments were all die-cut.

Color Swap - Pink and Green

Here is the card that I made for the Color Swap in my stamping group. The colors were pink and green. I already had the butterfly sitting on my table. I had die-cut it in black and then made a pink layer to back it with. I added a bit of darker pink ink around the outer edges. The black circle was on my table, too. I cut a white one to place on top of that and embossed it with a Darice embossing folder. I lightly rubbed some pink ink over the embossing. I stenciled the background with one of my new stencils. The sentiment is from a Maya Road set.

Coneflower Birthday

I'm pretty sure these are coneflowers. 😀 I cut the flowers, the flower centers and the leaves with dies. The stems are just straight cuts. I brushed some darker ink on the petals and added white dots on the flower centers. I used a Tim Holtz stencil to make the background. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. This card measures 3.5 x 6.25 inches.
