Handstamped Sympathy Card

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Making a handmade card is not always fun, but it can still be beautiful.  Our family lost a beautiful women who always shared her love for life.


She taught me how to dance with our turkey on thanksgiving morning before cooking him,  have ice cream for dinner instead of waiting for dessert, and the list goes on.  Thanks Aunt Bubs for touching our lives and our hearts.  We will have these wonderful memories forever.

This card was made using a rubber stamp from Inkadinkado.  I stamped the image twice (since I wanted a layered card) with memento black ink on plain white cardstock.  Then colored the image with Copic sketch markers.  Then I stamped “With Sympathy” onto the top of the colored image using the same black ink, cut, then used some pop dots to make the flower stems have dimension.  Next, I wrapped some white ribbon around the layered piece and added a bow.  For the final touch I added some diamond Stickles to the flowers for a little shimmer.

Handmade Card For A Book and Cat Lover

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

My Godson is having a birthday this week and he is such an awesome writer.  He has written such fantastic short stories and articles that his teachers want to have them published, that’s how good he is.  So when I thinking of what kind of handmade card I was going to make for him, this rubber stamp was the perfect choice.  I know when he gets older he will have some books published and this is what my bookcase would look like with our Norwegian Forrest Cat :)


This stamp is from Stamps Happen, Inc./artist Charles Wysocki.   I first stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock. I used white because I knew I was going to color every inch of this image using Copic markers.  Then for the layered look, attached the image to blue cardstock then to a white card base.  This card was really fun to color.  Get yourself a large detailed rubberstamp and you can have some fun coloring too!  If you don’t have Copic markers you can use water based markers, pencils or even crayons if you like.  Just be creative and enjoy :)

~ Happy Birthday Tyler ~

Handstamped Birthday Card for a Wonderful Sister

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I handmade for my wonderful sister.  I am so happy that I got to spend some time with her when I visited New Jersey last month.  Looking at this card I am laughing because when I was in New Jersey they had a snow storm and I was wishing that I was barefoot like this card shows :)


I wanted this card to be colorful and I thought of a stamp that I had from Suzy Toronto. This rubberstamp is named Friends and I don’t know about you, but my sister is my best friend.

I actually met Suzy years ago when I lived in New Mexico at a big arts & crafts fair during the yearly Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.  Suzy Toronto has a line of artwork called Wonderful Wacky Women that I fell in love with.

Anyway, I stamped the image with Memento Black Ink then colored with Copic sketch markers.  Cardstock is from Stampin’ Up and I think the name of the base color is Calypso Coral, the white panel is Whisper White.  The ribbon used is from Dashes, Dots & Checks.

For the inside of the card I reversed the ribbon so when the card is standing you would be able to see the ribbon.


Wishing the Best Sister in the world a Happy Birthday!
