Yay! Stamping! Boo! Photo Editing!


I had so much fun today stamping and less fun trying to find a free photo editing app that would be easy to use and make my white cards look white. Alas, I've had a hard time finding some of the programs you recommended. Let's see how successful I was with a highly rated app in the app store.

Well, that's a nope.

Let's try again.

That's better. I'll get the hang of it.

I'm not sure how to put my name and copyright information on the photo and take off the app name. I'll figure it out eventually. Please don't steal my images in the meantime.

Regardless of the app woes, I love this card. I used Tim Holtz dies for the white foliage and a Hero Arts stamp set with dies for the dragonflies. They are colored with Arteza brush markers for really vivid color and then brushed with clear Wink of Stella.

The card was loosely inspired by THIS LOVELY PIN but went veering off in another direction. The echo of the original is evident, though.

So much fun to make!

Mercy, grace, peace, and love,

PS If you are interested in my post on the issue of homosexuality and the United Methodist Church, I finally wrote the thing. It's been several years percolating. It might piss some people off, but then, I'm pretty pissed off at what my church is doing. 


  1. I read your "other" post. Well done! I'm not a member of that community but it saddens me that anyone should be excluded because of a book that was written by men 1000s of years ago. Liz

  2. Photo editing takes practice...lots and lots! Results can vary depending on your monitor as well...what you see is not always what others see...but that gets into more professional areas. Personally, the "creamier" version is more pleasing to my eye...but that's just me! Bottom line...very nice CAS card!
    Loved your "other" post as well and commented's SO beautifully written.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
