Art Deco Summer


MEOW! This is one of my favorite summer cards, and it recently appeared on the Poppystamps blog! It was so easy to make too! I let myself be inspired by anything around me. Sometimes I see another designer’s project and I am inspired by the idea, and choose a different color combination. Sometimes I see a terrific color combination I never thought of before, and apply it to a new design concept. But here in the world of hand-crafted cards, we can all learn from each other, and be inspired by new ideas and products.

Speaking of new products . . .

Something new is on its way! Join us at the Poppystamps blog on July 1st for our launch of the Poppystamps new DIE-no-mite release!

Big Bright Birthday



Big Bright Birthday was such a fun card to make! I created it for the Poppystamps website blog, of which I am so proud to be one of a group of featured designers. Every day, you can see a beautiful new creation from someone on our very talented team. I learn something new every day!

Northern Summer



Once the hot weather sets in here in the deep South, my thoughts turn to the perfect summer weather of my home state, Wisconsin, where summers by the lake meant tall pines and dragonflies skimming the water near the dock. Enjoy those warm summer days!
