About Me

Nottingham, Md, United States
Hi! I am a 39 year old stay at home mom (most of the time). I am a hairstylist that scaled back greatly when I had three babies within a year. The twins are now 5 and the youngest is 4 and I also have a 16 year old. All girls! I love working with vinyl, Jaded Blossom, Stampin' Up!, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, my Cameo and my Copics among other creative things! I enjoy cake decorating, stamping, scrapping, card making and most things crafty! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

Mom's Birthday Card

Made this for my mom for her 60th!!!! birthday. WOW.
I wish this was a better photo but the water is a holographic teal and blue and I tore it and sponged it with Colorbox Frost white. I used homemade Glimmer mist then sponged some yellow through the top and again sponged some white clouds. I stamped the seagulls and colored them with white gelly pens.
 A photo outside still trying to capture the gorgeous glimmer on this card. My crab and sentiment were stamped from Stampin Up's Crab & Co. Colored with Copics and Glossy Accents. Divine Twine in brown (I think coffee?)
This didn't come out like I had planned because I was unfortunately rushed. I would have rather stamped out names because I just don't care for my handwriting :(
