Not Lion….

It was my grandson Zachary’s first birthday last week, and this is the card I made for him. The set is from Inky Antics, and so adorable.


The card is long and narrow, just seemed to look better this way. The image was stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black, then coloured in with Copic Markers. I then cut him out, and stamped an extra tail, coloured that and layered it on top of the lion. Then I used Nestibilities to do some layering. I thought it was a cute 1st birthday card.

I do have a picture to share of Zachary eating his birthday cake!! lol Now tell me he isn’t a little sweetheart. I really miss this little guy!

Zachary's First Birthday!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day,



After my house…Tagtime at Stampotique



This tag was made using the Stampotique Great Moon, Spiderweb, and sentiment from Dylusions by Dyan Reaveley. I just love her sentiments, some and quirky, some are fun…she also has some more serious sets. I started by cutting the tag with the Tim Holtz Tag die template. Then I spread distress stains on my teflon sheet and sprayed with a bit of water, then smooshed (not a word, I know..lol) the tag through it a few times until I had the look I wanted. I dried it with a heat gun, and then distressed the edges. The moon and sentiment were both stamped on patterned paper, cut out, then distressed. I ran the ribbon through the same ink I had leftover from the tag, wrinkled it into a ball, then dried with my heat gun. You have to be a bit careful doing this…it can start smoking pretty fast, and I am thinking it could start on fire if you aren’t careful. In the end I did put a tiny touch of yellow Stickles on the star.

Thank you for stopping by,
