Get Well Soon Blossoms

9 08 2018

Life isn’t perfect.

Sometimes you need a get well soon card. But these are SO much better than sympathy cards, so I’m happy to do make them 🙂

I used Penny Black’s The Unfolding stamp for this. There’s masking, inking, platform stamping, watercolor blending, colored pencil work, markers, and just the tiniest bit of sparkle (which you can’t see in this picture but I wish you could).

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Cards Part the Second – Here’s Three More

16 11 2017
  1. This card was super simple but has a wow effect. If you’re pressed for time, this is a good one to try 🙂 And to help keep it simple and quick, I used my Silhouette Sketch pens for the greeting.img_3526

 

2. This card was supposed to be a trifold card, but I could NOT figure out how to make it work. I ended up taking the pieces apart and layering them with foam tape. And I like how it turned out 🙂

3. This card was old school stamping and card assembly for me 🙂 I used a Stampendous stamp, colored with markers and pencils, and used a few metal dies and put everything together.

My Pixscan Works Now!

31 05 2017

Silhouette released V4 of their software and I finally just did it. I always worry that my computer will do something stupid and I’ll lose work, so I backed everything up and pushed the upgrade button. And now my pixscan mat works! (It didn’t work for me on the previous version.)

I used it on this card – I’m not sure how I feel about this card yet, though. But I got to use the pixscan feature and that’s really what I wanted to do 🙂

I used markers and colored directly on the stamp then stamped down. There were repeated passes to get the fish to this point, but I was trying to practice.

Anyway, here’s the card. Thanks for looking 😀
