Haunted Invitations

My friend and co-worker requested a set of custom invitations for her son’s upcoming birthday. They are going to celebrate at an indoor trampoline park. (I’ve never been to one but, they look like a lot of fun!)

I copied the logo for Reboounderz off of the company’s website. And then in a Word document I changed it over to a black and white version so that I could color it how I liked.  And I downloaded a spooky looking free font from In order to have the company logo and the sentiment match in color, I chose a bubble style font so that I could color the letters by hand.

Zombie card, Halloween birthday invitation, rebounderz invitation,

The zombies and tombstones are two separate dollar bin stamps from Michaels, that I bought a few years back. (Always check out the dollar bins in Michaels and JoAnns because, sometimes they have great buys.) The sky and laser lights are colored with Copic Markers and then dabbed with a rag that has Copic blending solution on it. The ink will move away from any area where the solution is placed and by using a terry cloth rag it gives the ink a stippled look.

And because the invitations were for a trampoline party I mounted the Rebounderz logo on a Action Wobble spring to make it interactive. My friend’s son really loved the design and he was happy that I had made an extra one just for him. Hopefully his friends liked the design too!

Stay tuned for my Thanksgiving cards in a just a few days.

Happy Stamping,


A Sweet New Year!

Posted on

Some of my nieces and nephews are Jewish and so they celebrate the Jewish New Year in early fall each year. One of the traditions of this holiday is the use of apples and honey to symbolize a sweet new year. And so I like to feature them in the cards that I send to the kids.

Jewish New Year Card

The apple was created using the Create a Critter cartridge from Cricut. And the honey comb was made using hexagon die cuts. I filled the honeycomb with Glossy Accents and a little bit of gold glitter. The be is the last one I had from an embellishment sheet that I bought a few years ago.

Apple Teacher card

This apple was made with the Cricut too but, I used a scalloped punch to make it look like he had a bite taken out of his delicious self. The honeycomb on this card is a stamped image from Paper Smooches Geo Graphic stamp set and it is filled with Glossy Accents and glitter too.

Create a Critter Apples

Nearly this entire card is made using the Create A Critter cartridge. I heat embossed clear powder on the apples to give them a shiny skin. And I snuck a tree branch in from the Lawn Fawn: Critters Down Under stamp set too.

I used an Action Wobble spring under each of these apples to give the cards an element of fun! It is oddly pleasing to give these apples a little pluck and watch them wobble back and forth. 🙂

Happy Stamping,


I wanted to share a few more Valentine’s Day cards with you all today. These next two cards feature Action Wobble Springs which allow the focal element to wobble back and forth.


This card features two diecuts from a K &  Company Valentine’s Day pack. I mounted the word love on black paper and cut the paper to frame the word. The Action Wobbler is under the word love.

K & Company Valentine

This card also features diecuts from K & Company. I bought several packs on clearance at Michael’s years ago and they are perfect for quick and easy cards. I love to color my stamped images but, when I am making lots of cards at once it is nice sometimes to just pop a premade image onto my card.

Happy Stamping,


Wolf Boy Wobble-een

Posted on

A few weeks ago I was awarded the honor of being the guest designer for the Wobble Wednesday Challenge sponsored by Action Wobble Challenges. That means that I got to create the challenge for the week of August 28!

Wolf Boy Whimsie DoodlesI chose Halloween as my theme. Halloween is my favorite holiday! And since I usually create 10 cards each holiday to send to my nieces and nephews, I enjoyed getting a jump on my Halloween card stash this year.

Action Wobble Halloween

This is what an Action Wobble Spring looks like in action. It’s fun to give it a pluck and watch it wobble!

I used a free digital image from Whimsie Doodles and I printed it out twice so that I could cut out the Trick or Treat bag to be my wobble feature.

The grass, the sky and the cobblestone path are all created with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. You rub them on with a foam applicator and then flick  or spritz some water on them to create the speckled effect.

Action Wobble

Action Wobbles are easy to use. Just peel, stick and pluck. I purchased mine from Ellen Hutson but they are available at a variety of online stores.

If you want a list of the materials I used to create this card I’ve listed them below.

Action Wobble spring, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in colors, Mowed Lawn, Dusty Concord, Broken China and Vintage Photo. The stamps are Whimsie Doodles Wolf Boy, Hero Arts Bat Clings and Martha Stewart Clear Stamps Classic Halloween. I used various Copic Markers to color the Wolf Boy.

Happy Stamping,


Action Wobble Penguin

Posted on

It was so nice to have the day off yesterday. And for once in about 2 weeks it didn’t rain at all during the day. We lazed around the house yesterday and took a dip in the pool and it was blissful! Hopefully you enjoyed your Independence Day as well.

I got a chance to play around in my craft room this morning and I put together a card for the CAS-ual Fridays Material Girl Challenge and the same card is perfect for the Action Wobble Christmas in July, Challenge.

Penguin Christmas Card

My daughter Sam and I had purchased some fabric at Christmas time last year to make pajama pants. We partially made one pair of  pants, one size too small and then gave up. LOL I am not much of a sewer. So needless to say I have a bunch of flannel penguin material left over.


I carefully cut out one of the adorable penguins and mounted her to some cardboard with Elmer’s Glue. Then I added an Action Wobble spring to the back of  cardboard so that she can jiggle her little penguin booty on the card. The sentiment is a mash up from CASual Fridays: Rad, Mama Elephants: Flashy Letters and Hero Arts: Christmas Sentiments.

Here is a picture of the penguin in action.
