Hi all! Tonight I opened up the new tube watercolors from Artistry by Altenew, set up a new palette with them, swatched the colors, and then painted a stamped image from The Greeting Farm. As a bonus, I also showed the new Halloween 2023 set of paints from Iuile Watercolors at the end of the livestream. Those will be available on October 1 in the Iuile Watercolors shop.
Hi all! Just wanted to share this video and card that I created for Simon Says Stamp using the Pinkfresh STAMPtember 2023 collaboration products. The Artistic Foliage stamps are still available, however the set (which includes the stamps and stencil set) is unfortunately sold out. But you can still achieve a similar look to this without the stencils…
After the initial stamping of the outline stamp images with a light ink, the leaves can be colored using paints or other coloring mediums. Then the outline stamp images can be stamped over the top and heat embossed (just like I did after the stenciling). Hope that helps! :)
Hi, all! Today I have the mail call cards from you for August 2023! The theme for August 2023 was Coloring cards! Let’s open some mail! :)
NOTE: This was a livestream and so much fun! I’ve decided that all Mail Call videos will now be live events. :)
Hi all! I have another video for you tonight! This one is a card I made using the new Spooky and Mice stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. It’s their STAMPtember collaboration stamp set! Super fun! As with all the collaboration stamp sets, this one is limited and once it’s sold out it will not be available again. So get it while you can! :)
Hi all! Tonight I attempted to create trifold shaker card! What I really ended up making was a trial run of a card design that I will definitely be making again. There were lot of mistakes made but in the end, it was a cute card! I used the Cue the Confetti stamps from Simon’s latest release.
Hi all! Tonight for my weekly livestream, I showed the items I designed for the STAMPtember 2023 release, plus some of Honey Bee’s latest release. Then I played with the Autumn Cascade stencil set from Simon, and the Bountiful Banner stamps and coordinating dies from Honey Bee.

Hello, all! For this week’s livestream, I played with the latest release from Sunny Studio. There is a TON of amazing holiday stamps and dies in their release! See the release in their shop, or over at Simon Says Stamp.
With recent postage price changes, I needed to update my Postage Calculator PDF that I shared last January. The flow chart walks you through determining how much postage you need to mail your cards. This update includes the current pricing for first class letters, plus additional information for mailing your cards internationally.
See exactly how to use this flow chart in my original video.
Hi all! I recently made this card for my husband since I was going on a two week cruise (I’m actually still on the cruise right now), and knew we would be apart for a while. I loved the images in the True Friend stamp set from The Greeting Farm, but needed to combine two of the images and take out one cat. With a bit of masking, it worked great! Then I paired it with a greeting from Simon Says Stamp’s Just Miss You stamp set.
For some texture, I used the Circle Illusion embossing folder from Spellbinders and ink blended some color on it.
