Happy Father’s Day!

Tonight I am sharing the card I made for my stepdad. It is also Card 4 for my Craft from My Stash challenge…I need to get on the ball if I plan to make my 10-15 project goal this month!



I used Nailed It from Stampin’ Up! that recently retired along with the coordinating paper, Urban Underground. I watercolored the tools using a blender pen and SU inks. The layout is from a sketch posted at TGIF Challenges a couple weeks ago.


Here is the inside using more stamps from the set. I managed to use 7 out of the 14 stamps in the set on this card!



Thanks for stopping by!

40th Birthday Card

Good morning!!


I have been meaning to post since the beginning of the month and keep getting sidetracked with other things.


(Graphic made using an old photo of my room and the Rhonna Designs app)


June kicked off my 3rd Annual Craft from My Stash, where I focus more on using my craft stash and less on purchasing new products. Two exceptions are a new catalog order from SU (already in the works before I decided to run my challenge again lol) and a trip to the LSS in August for my bday. My goal is to complete 10-15 projects per month (cards, layouts, etc.)


A few weeks ago, one of my dear friends celebrated her 40th birthday. I wasn’t sure what to do for her card and came across the sketch from As You Can See It, the day it was posted.



I used SU’s Number of Years stamp set and coordinating dies for the numbers and sentiment. The scalloped square was stamped with sprinkles from the Cool Treats stamp set. The patterned paper is from the coordinating Tasty Treats dsp.


Here is the sketch~



I’ll be back in a bit with another card!

Avant Garden #5



Here is the last card in my Avant Garden series. Let me tell you about it and then below I’ll share my verdict on whether I am keeping the set or not.



When I finished this card last night, I wasn’t overly crazy about it. After looking at it now, I do like it. Random stamping is something I really enjoy. I think the plain background could have been jazzed up and I’ll remember that for next time.


Verdict: After 5 cards with this set and some technical difficulties with the flower, I have decided to add this set to my tag sale box. I think if it was a larger set I might have held on it, but I did use each stamp multiple times so I am fine with parting with it.


Time to move on to another set!


Have a great night!

Avant Garden #4



Tonight I am sharing card #4 in my Avant Garden series. I loved random stamping the background panel on this one.



Lots of layers and dimension on this card! I used 4 stamps from the set. The sentiment was stamped on the Decorative Label punch so it would stand out a bit from the busy background.


Have a great night!
