You’re a Grand Old Flag

With Independence Day coming up, I thought I would play around with some Blank Page Muse stamps and a few newer techniques that Tim Holtz showed on one of his Saturday Distress Oxide ink demos earlier in the year.

Under the Curvy Sea

For those that do not really know me, I love fantasy and sci-fi in my normal real life. Since I was a child, I spent Saturday mornings watching HR Puffinstuff, Doctor Who and other shows that dipped their toes into the fantastical. When I started doing stamping and crafts over 30 years ago, the first…

There is No Place Like Home

First six months of 2019 I was on a Design Team for Blank Page Muse. While I was there, I played around with a lot of their cool stamps. I particularly liked their Wizard of Oz stamps. At the time, I was also desperately trying to use up the massive paper scrap pile I had….

Unicorn, Moon and Stars

Unicorns are some of my favorite cryptids. I have been very lucky to be working on the Design Team for Blank Page Muse, and they just released these adorable Fantasy Unicorn stamp set by Katie Lamb. With the release of these new images, I was able to play with them a bit and came up…

Advent Day 22: Santa Gift Bag

Yes, I’m changing things up and doing another how-to for something that isn’t a tag or card…but could be used the same way. Project ideas that can be customized to whatever the occasion and need are super helpful for my busy lifestyle.  More general projects, full of techniques and easy to adjust to various special…

Advent Day 21: Holiday Fairy Card

I’m changing my advent posts up a bit with this post.  I have a how-to card using Black Page Muse stamps.  My challenge this time around was to use non-holiday images to create a Christmas card. As a fantasy fan, using a winged fae was a natural to use because Christmas has its own magic.  Blank…

Advent Day 14: Starry Santa

This was my first Christmas card created when I first received stamps from Blank Page Muse.  This Santa is on this sheet of rubber here, stars are off this one, snowflake here, stars and designs here, and have some other random geometric stamps in the sky.  Used distress oxides and masked off the ground.
