Giveaway {and other news}

March is almost over and tomorrow will be April Fool’s Day!

My oldest will be 5…..FIVE! The joke is on me 😉

So, besides overcoming Croup, Pneumonia, and a laundry list of upper respiratory crud, a lot has been going on in my crafty life!

Here are two sneak peeks of my publications on the iPhone App from Clear and Simple Stamps:

In Lawn Fawn news, Kelly has asked me to take the role as Design Team Coordinator! I am so honored and am happy to be of service! Thank you Lawn Fawn :)

Now, this next thing is pretty darn cool (because I’m a dork):


Two Peas Newsletter

My card was the Featured Project in this last Two Peas Newsletter!!!!!!! How rad is that!? It’s the card in the middle!

To that end….

I’m hosting a little giveaway!

I have Guest Blogger Post over at the Design Memory Craft Blog and would love it if you guys left me some love! But that’s not required 😉

Just leave a comment on this post by April 6th 9PM PST and I’ll draw 2 winners on April 7th!

Each winner will receive a small sampling of Faber-Castell products:

Stamper’s Big Brush Markers in Pale Geranium Lake 121, Deep Scarlet Red 219, Black 199, cobalt blue 143, an art grip aquarelle pencil, and 2 PITT Pastels.

Like I said, it’s a small rather random sampling of the products, but fun no less!

Watercolor Fun

Good Morning Blogosphere!

I’m happy to report that the boys are 100% better! We went to a birthday party this weekend, played with play-doh, painted, and baked up a storm! We are on the road to a healthy recovery :) Here’s a card I made just having fun with some Faber-Castell Gelatos! First I sprayed the stamp with some water, then I applied the gelatos directly to the stamp, stamped 3 times in a row for generational stamping, and finished with a sweet sentiment. The sentiment was inked up with the Faber-Castell Big Brush Marker in black for some permanent action and I added some ink splatter.

Materials: Faber-Castell Gelatos, Faber-Castell Stamper’s Big Brush Marker (Black), Neenah Cardstock, Unity Stamp, Hero Arts Stamp (Made With Love), Prima Pearls, Baker’s Twine

Hope ya like it!

If you play along, use the sketch however you see fit~It’s okay to make changes! Also, please use keyword TG013 if you upload to an online gallery. Please link to me if you use the sketch~I comment on all the cards!

Here’s my card:

I used Lawn Fawn’s mini stamp set celebrating their 1 year anniversary! It’s free with any $50 purchase at! I had some fun with my neglected Memento markers to get a cool tie-dye look! Then I stamped the sentiment and a row of stars and added glossy accents to the stars. The fun twine is from Ryann’s Etsy Shop!
