About Me

I am a new empty nester, and I love to make cards and ATCs. I am always looking for ways to use the product I have, to learn new techniques and ways to do things, and most of all, to have fun with the creating of my art.

Another Wedding Card

One of my good friends renewed her vows with her hubby last week in a beautiful, sweet ceremony.. This is the card that I did. It's a Mojo Monday 137 sketch. I used pink bazzil for the base c/s, then some gorgeous DP that I got a LSS in March.  I used a Hero Arts butterfly from Antique Engravings, and the sentiment is from Everyday messages.  I picked up on the pale orange in the card with the pieces of prange c/s with the bling pink.  My friend liked the card, and now that she has it, I can post it. :D

Card made for a Wedding

This card was done for one of my closest friend's mother's wedding. All the stamps are Hero Arts. I used Friend Definition for the background, leaving a blank circle in the top left area. ( I used the back of a scrap of white circle c/s from a nestie cut out).  I sponged the blank area with Pretty In Pink ink, then stamped the butterfly on DP, cut it out, and foam mounted the body only on the card. I added the pink pearls, and black ribbon.  Once I knew where I wanted the sentiment, I stamped it in Versafine Black, and made sure the ribbon was BELOW the sentiment.  I then mounted the white card onto a Pretty in Pink c/s base.

Christmas Card Challenge for May

Here is my entry for Tracy's Christmas Card Challenge.http://tracyshappyplace.blogspot.com/   I used Kraft c/s as my base, red DP for the red, and chocolate ink and c/s.  The cream is the oval for the sentiment, done in red.  The stamp is from the 2009 Christmas mini hostess set. Thanks for looking!
