A Birthday Card and Baby Pumpkin

I really do not know where time goes. All I do know is that we survived our first hurricane. Hurricane Florence was devastating for the Eastern shore area of North Carolina but here in the Raleigh area we were ok. A week of rain day in and out but no flooding for us in our neighborhood.  Ok, on to happier subjects.

This is a birthday card I made for my friend back in Iowa. I had the card made for a month and then with the hurricane I forgot all about it. I had every intention of the background of her card to be alcohol inks. I didn’t like any of them so came up with the idea to use the Memory Box “darling poppies” die and use the background alcohol papers and really liked how it turned out.

I took this “Baby Pumpkin” class online through Vanilla Arts and am really loving her classes.

I’m taking more classes so will be posting as I do more.

Hope everyone is having a great week. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. They are always appreciated.



A Few Christmas Cards

It’s been a rough year this year motivation-wise. I just didn’t have any. I dug deep and made a few Christmas cards. Here are three that should have arrived by now. I will have six more cards but will have to wait until after Christmas.

The first two I made for Linda and Annette. I tried Jennifer McGuire’s Cling wrap technique. I used navy paper for these cards. It was a lot of fun and I highly recommend trying it. The background was made using Alcohol Inks. I use the backside of photo paper. I really like how it looks better than the front side. I used the dotted squares dies from Sizzix. The Manger dies are from Spellbinders.

Next up is Emily’s card. Sizzix Deer Knit embossing folder that I highlighted with Distress Ink Walnut Stain. I used the Hero Arts Layered Evergreen Tree stamp set.

May all of you have a wonderful Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
