About Me

I am a new empty nester, and I love to make cards and ATCs. I am always looking for ways to use the product I have, to learn new techniques and ways to do things, and most of all, to have fun with the creating of my art.

A Hydrangea Birthday Card

This is a card I made for a friend whose birthday I thought was late next week, not this week.. Ooops.  I started with an Almost Amethyst SU cardstock, which I stamped with the Envelope Pattern stamp from Hero Arts in Victorian Velvet.  I added a pink bling Bazzil scalloped edge border on the left hand side. Using a piece of white cardstock, I stamped the Hydrangea  Hero Arts stamp in Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.  Using some SU watercolour pencils, I coloured the hydrangea and leaves.  I  rounded opposite corners on the white cardstock, and adhered it to the amethyst  base.  I stamped Happy Birthday (Hero Arts) in Dusty Concord Distress Ink.


  1. Pretty colors-- hydrangeas are always a classy pick!
