There have been some pretty beautiful rainbows here lately.
We have been having afternoon showers followed by sunshine so there you go.
Today's card was inspired by the card sketch for the
SCT year long class.
Each month we get a card sketch and a layout sketch.
I created this one with the
I tried something new to get those gold splatters with my
Just squeeze it gently to allow the gold ink to flow to the brush and gently tap it on your finger, holding it over your work.
It's a fun effect!
Hope your week is as bright and colorful as this card.
I know my week will be filled with excitement as I head to the
Close To My Heart convention in Utah midweek.
I will pre-schedule some blog posts but if you want to keep updated on what's new, I will be sharing on my Facebook page

Best Wishes

I interrupt my "Scrappy Saturday" feature to finish off the week bringing you the last set of
No Worries cards using WYW Kit designs.
These two cards have the exact same layout as the two I shared yesterday but they have a completely different look.
I love the soft Sea Glass sponged on the edges to give these cards a misty, beachy vibe.
And how about a nice, cold, umbrella drink?

You can find the cutting guide for these cards on the
Workshop Your Way Let's Party page HERE.
This series was fun to do and as a result I have lots of summery cards to send!
Best wishes for a relaxing weekend!

Let's Party!

This is the third, and final, cardmaking kit that I will be sharing in this series.
These cards are from the
These cards feature the exclusive to this kit stamp set and
Prickly Pear papers.
I like the fun, festive images and the very useful birthday sentiments.
In this kit, you get everything (except ink) you need to create 12 birthday cards.
I like that this set has some inside sentiment images as well.
I am always looking for new sentiments for inside my cards.
"Let's Party!" sounds like the perfect sentiment to carry us in to the weekend.
Have a good one!

Beachy Adventures Ahead

For these two cards I used the same sketch and paper packet as 
I swapped out the stamp set to include the
The top card could be for retirement, a new career or bon voyage!
The next one is for retirement.
I am getting to the age where I need more and more retirement card, lol.
You can view and download the cutting guides for these design HERE.
Here's another look at the cool, beachy stamp set.
This time next week, I will be enjoying the Close To My Heart convention in 
Salt Lake City, Utah.

No Worries Cardmaking Kit

Today I introduce you to the 
It has a great stamp set that includes thank you sentiments too.
I love this stamp set and it is one that will go in the "permanent collection"
because I make a lot of thank you notes.
This simple design comes right from the card kit cutting guide.
It features neutral patterns from the No Worries Paper Packet
but they are paired up with Sorbet and Sea Glass cardstocks.
That gives it a totally different look than the beachy feel of No Worries.
I love that you can get so much mileage from one stamp set and one paper packet!
Here's a look at the kit.
You get everything you need (except ink) to create 12 cards for only $23.95.
That's only $2 per card. 
And even a greater value if you keep that stamp set around in your permanent collection!
Tomorrow I will show you two more cards, create with the same design, same stamp set, same paper packet but with a totally different vibe...beachy!

Jack Meets No Worries

Remember the cards I showed you yesterday,
the ones from the Jack Workshop Your Way Kit?
Well, today I used the same cutting guide/layout to create
two cards using the
I love the soft, relaxed vibe to this card.
That is thanks to Sea Glass Ink.
I sponged the edges, using a make-up sponge.
Having the sketches and cutting guide from the Jack made these cards come together easily.
Did you know you can download the instructions for FREE?
Right HERE.
Just click the DOWNLOAD HERE button.
Cool, huh?
if you are wanting to add that to your collection.
Have a relaxing day!

Happy Father's Day Week

I am a little late posting a Father's Day card but here it is!
These two cards come from the
In this kit, you get everything (except ink) you need to create
12 cards.
Not too many people need that many 
Father's Day cards but you can easily sub
in other sentiment stamps.
I will show you how I did exactly that throughout the week.
My customer/friends came over to do a sampler class, last week, where we made one of each of the cards in 3 of the kits featured in this Seasonal Expressions.
These kits will only be around through August and hopefully there will be more in the new books!
Here's a look at the complete kit.
