Below is some info on our latest sponsors, Wags and Whiskers:

I was a stay-at-home mom for 7 years so stamping was a great way for some “Mommy time”. But after stamping for over 2 years, my hobby became my obsession…so my obsession became my dream! Now I own an on-line store!

Stamp and Create is a new on-line store carrying many popular brands of stamps, paper, and embellishments including: Wags ‘n Whiskers Rubber Stamps, High Hopes Stamps, Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, Whiff of Joy, Stampavie, Penny Black, The Greeting Farm, Basic Grey, 7

I am always adding new items to the store…so check it out at

Today I did a card for Wags and Whiskers.   I love this image that I got this round.

New sponsors for Sew Many Cards


This is a card I did or our news sponsors (info at bottom of post) over at SMC.   I was sent this wonderful background stamp (SL-3184WUM Peacock Scene Background)  so I decided to do something different with it.   When I say different I mean out of my comfort zone,  So I took the stamp and inked it up with my spectrum pad and laid my glossy paper on it and  then used the brayer to  give it an even finish.  I love how it turned out and hope you do do. 



Our Sponsors

Cornish Heritage Farms (CHF) is owned & run by Richard & Liz Pomeroy. Why the name? Richard & Liz are originally from Cornwall, England hence the Cornish Heritage & the 'Farms' is the 100 acre farm in north central Montana where they live & where all the stamps are manufactured. Richard & Liz believe in producing a high quality product so all the stamps are deeply etched, red rubber. CHF is a diverse stamp company in the fact that it consists of a variety of different licenses & styles, ranging from very detailed (Thomas Kinkade) to simple line art (Tom Fun Collection) therefore offering something for everyone.

Oldie but Goodie Thursday

Oh yeah love Thursday’s because we get to show you some of our favorite images from Bugaboo!   I have two for you today.  First I used the most adorable Bugaboo brats, and created a scene and used the flowers so they all looked alike.  This is the second card for my digi swap I did .



The second one I used the adorable skull paper you can get with the mini set and paired it with the cute Tee set from Lily-boo's boutique  I had the designer paper in a little rock pack and decided to brayer the skull paper and the tee to match it.  I think it turned out cute.  Thanks for stopping by!


Swap Card

A friend and fellow Design Team member did a swap on SCS for Digi stamps.  I absolutely love digi stamps and on this one decided to combined two different ones.  They are so easy to use and combining them is a breeze.  The little conductor is from Sassy Cheryl’s digi stamps and the train is from Inktegrity.  The paper used is from American Craft designer paper and Stampin up tangerine the base and sentiment.  I colored this little cutie with my copics,  sponged the background and added some glitter to make it pop.   Thanks for stopping by!
