Time To Recycle

Friday, April 22nd, 2022

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan and I’m here with a card for today’s Random Act of Cardness Challenge. I decided that since today is Earth Day I would make the prompt RECYCLE.

I love to take pieces of cardboard boxes and use them on cards are as covers for notebooks and mini scrapbook albums.

I cut a piece of Moonlit Fog with the largest die in the Lawn Fawn Small Rectangle Die Set and adhered it to a white card base. After removing the top layer from the piece of cardboard I sponged the edges with Icing on the Cake ink from Catherine Pooler Designs then adhered it to the card.

I stamped the Zen Butterfly from Lavinia with Nocturne ink onto some brown paper that was used for packing in an online order I received. I fussy cut the image and adhered it to the card using craft foam under the wings to pop them up but the body and antennas are adhered directly to the card.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Beautiful Blessings, embossed with WOW Super Fine White Embossing Powder on Gina K Moonlit Fog card stock that I sponged the edges with Icing on the Cake ink and adhered directly to the card.

I finished the card with some clear gems in my stash.



Thanks so much for spending some of your day with me.
Take care

Add a Little Splatter!

Friday, March 11th, 2022


Happy Friday! I have a little inspiration for you for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt, SPLATTER:



Making cards to show support for Ukraine is still on my mind, so I knew I wanted to make something with blue and yellow. I pulled out this pretty Filled In Florals set from Concord & 9th, stamping the large flower in stone blue ink from Catherine Pooler and the smaller one with juniper mist. Both flower centres are stamped in tiara, and the leaves in garden party. Before I did anything else, I did some splattering! I think splatter is a great way to add extra interest to a CAS card design. I used tiara and stone blue for my splatters, tapping a little of each ink out on some acetate then using a small brush and some water to make it splatter-thin-enough. Once the splatters had dried, I stamped my two part sentiment and put the card together.



What about you, are you ready to add some splatter to your next project? If you do, link up to the Facebook challenge page, and don’t forget to add the hashtag #snschallenge to your socials. And if you feel a shop coming on, remember you can use 10Lindsey to get 10% off your order!


Warm & Cozy Hugs

Saturday, January 29th, 2022

Hi Everyone! Happy Saturday! It’s Susan here with a card for todays Random Act of Cardness prompt of WARM.  You can play along with us over on the Scrap’n Stamp Challenge Page on Facebook.

I used the Jill Stamp Set from Picket Fence Studios because she’s dressed WARM and drinking a WARM beverage. I stamped it using my mini MISTI and some Midnight ink from Catherine Pooler Designs. I colored it in with my Prismacolor Pencils then put the image back in my MISTI and stamped it again to crisp up the lines. I cut the image out then made the background. I used Lemongrass, Shea Butter, Clay Mask and Orange Peel inks from Catherine Pooler to blend a background that felt WARM then die cut it using the 2nd largest die from the Lawn Fawn Large 4 Bar die set.

The sentiment is from Concord & 9th’s Winter Wear Stamp Set and I chose it because, you guessed it, it has the word WARM in it. 😉 I stamped it with WOW embossing ink onto some black card stock then heat set it with WOW Super Fine White Embossing Powder. I cut each word out separately then adhered them to the panel.

I layered the panel onto some black card stock the using craft foam I adhered it to a piece of patterned paper from MFT’s B&W Striped Paper Pack which I also layered onto some black card stock. I adhered that directly to a white card base.


Happy Stampin’
