Cards for July

The first two cards I used Stampin'Up cardstock and stamps. Cuttlebug Embossing Folders for texture.
The 3rd card, the stamp is by Cornish Heritage Farms using SU ink Close to Cocoa. Distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distressed inks. Cardstock is by Stampin'Up.

Dog Days of Summer

This summer we really didn't have dog days of summer, those unbearable hot and humid days. The card is layered with cut out dog with a coat, flowers punchies and a die cut layer, background stamps with bees from Stampin'Up.

More chatter

I've been working on improving my new blog and if you haven't seen it yet...then head over to I am going to keep that one just for mixed media and keep this one for cards, painted art and personal happenings. I hope you will enjoy both venues. I will try very hard to keep up with both. I guess I better start producing some new cards with Stampin'Up new colours of cardstock and stamps. I love the new dies for the Big Shot. Great little machine. If you haven't seen the new catalogue and idea book, take a peak here. Click on the icon and see for yourself.
I had a chance to peak at the new holiday mini cat. coming in September. Oh my, you will love all the new stuff.

My new blog

I've decided to switch my mixed media and altered art over to a new blog. It is called Romancing the Artist Within. Art for the creative mind blog will be more for card and other more rubber stamping related.

Pretty Little Girl

I was first introduced to paper art through rubber stamping and card making, but as time has gone on, I fell in love with altered art, collages, but I still love working with the card size base. I love the colour of green and it works out well in this card. The little girl I'm calling Belle from a collage sheet by ArtChix Studios. The cardstock and button are from Stampin'Up, the clear acrylic stamps and flowers are unknown.
