Paper Crafters Unite Against Racism

Ever feel like you just don't know what to do? How to help others feel supported?

I'll be honest and thus lean into being vulnerable. I live in central, almost rural, Kansas. I have always said that I am not racist, but honestly I have never known the term anti-racist until now.  I can guarantee that I have made mistakes, said and done the wrong things and been seemingly non-supportive as I lived like an ostrich with my head in the sand. 
My promise is to learn and find ways to do better and to be more supportive to People of Color. Although this is blog hop is a very, very small gesture, I feel it is a start.
 A small one but a start in the right direction. 
I support YOU and stand with YOU !
Here is my piece of creative to add to this hop. 

Thank you for stopping by my blog! 
Your next stop on the blog hop is here:
Enjoy the HOP!

You Got This

Hello! Soooo... I don't tend to be an impulse buyer. I deliberated for probably a year until a recent purchase of stamps. I'm generally very intentional to make sure everything can be used over and over. It must be stress (that's the best I got, lol)...but last week I made 3 impulse purchases. {{gasp}}
Good news is I am going to get lots of mileage out of this purchase from Paper Smooches!! This is a favorite sentiment where I work and the others in the set just as awesome. Paired with fun colors from Catherine Pooler Inks and its just happy, happy, happy!
Thanks for stopping by!

Love You...

Back with another alcohol ink card. I am in love with how this turned out. The colors remind me of a beach and some very blue water. I added some gold foil for just the perfect amount of bling.
The sentiment and die cut are from CZ Designs. The sentiments in this set are so fun! 
Thank you for stooping by my blog.

Nothing Better Than a Rainbow....

Oh baby there isnt anything better than a saturated rainbow! I love the way alcohol ink rainbows turn out. So bright and fun. And then.... if you pair it up with any CZ Designs product, you are sure to have a winner.
I was recently introduced to the glitter paper from MFT and it is amazing. SO. MUCH. BLING! I am going to need a stash of that paper, that is for sure.
 Thank you for stopping by today!

Red Eggs and.....

Red Eggs and Leaves? LOL. I was trying to make flowers but the more I looked at this one once I was done, I kept seeing pink/red eggs.  It definitely turned out to be a very bold creation and I do love these alcohol ink flowers.
Thank you for stopping by today!

I am working, little by little to make some pet sympathy cards so that I have them when I need them.
It's such a sad reason to have to send a card (any sympathy card) but an excellent opportunity to show love and support. 
Sentiment and paw die from My Favorite Things.
Have a great day!

Howdy. I thought I should share this little gem on my blog.
I love how this card turned out. Those big ole' sentiment/word dies are show stoppers.
This die is from Erin Lee Creative. Cut out of am alcohol ink back ground and popped up = winner! 
Thank you for stopping by!

Thank You

 I love all of the rainbow cards we are seeing.
I decided to use all of the sentiments in this MFT set in one card.  
I used copic markers to color the strips, then stamped the sentiments on.
Thank you for looking!

No Horsing Around

Here is another card using an alcohol ink background piece. I have to say the blues and aquas lend themselves to watery scenes--all bubbly and pretty.
Thank you for stopping by!

A Rainbow Hello

Howdy. We finally saw sunshine here in Kansas yesterday but today we have more rain in the forecast. I thought I'd post a little handmade rainbow happiness in protest of more rain :).
The HELLO die cut (Lawn Fawn) turned out as it did when I accidently chopped off the triangle part of the speech bubble...OOPS! 
Have a super day!
Thanks for stopping by!

Ohhhh...alcohol inks, why did it take me so long to cave in?
The card was done using a panel that I had created using the alcohol inks.
I then stamped some floral stamps using white ink. 
I topped it off with a fun scripty HBD due from MFT.
Have a wonderful day.
