I Appear to Like Hummingbirds

8 02 2017


I have another hummingbird card. Used my copics and twinkling H20’s.

I used one of my metal dies to cut it out then designed the background in Craft Artist 2 which I then moved into my Silhouette design space and cut out a few separate pieces and put it all together ๐Ÿ™‚

Not Sure How I Feel About This One

Another beach card ๐Ÿ™‚ Can you tell where I’d like to be?

But I’m not sure if I like this one. I’ve seen people like the awesome Sandy Allnockย stamp an imageย then add an amazing background to it. That’s what I tried, but I need a little more work on that technique. The embossed white of the card is the stamp, the rest filled in with copic marker.

I have more coloring I want to do, but I have other things that need to happen first. I’m behind on the little month by month books I make for my foster son’s bio mom. I should really get some done, and then there’s Valentines Day ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope your day was nice and relaxing. Thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚ XOXOXO

 





Feelin’ It!

4 02 2017

hello-light-houseSo I got a title change for that last project and it flowed and I was happy with how it turned out.

My reward for being an adult? Coloring.

I used the stamp set Down by the Seaside by Inkadinkado. I went a little old school with embossing powders, but used a stamp aligning tool I have (that isn’t really meant for that, but works wonderfully) and markers to layer color on the stamp, then press it into the paper. My last layer of ink was a clear versamark.ย I applied clear embossing powder to the image and heated it up. If you’ve played with this before, you know it effectively masks the area you’ve covered, which in this card is everything I colored. This allowed me to sponge in the sky without messing up the coloring too much. After that, I embossed my greeting in white, thenย  finished assembling my card.

Hopefully you got to do something fun today, too.

Thanks for stopping by! XOXOXO





Not feeling it

4 02 2017

I’m supposed to be designing a quick flyer for an upcoming activity at church…I’m not feeling it.

What I want to be doing is playing with a new stamp set I have that’s just been hanging up behind me feeling all alone.

For me, it’s hard to force creativity. If there’s no spark, it’s hard to get into it. I have the name of the activity and it’s not sparking. I thought of a different name, which creates a spark, but I don’t have the go ahead on it yet. But I’ll figure something out ๐Ÿ™‚





Fairy Cottage

3 02 2017

fairy-house-for-posting-2Have I mentioned how much I love 3D?

Here’s another house. I’ve made this one before, but decorated differently because I was doing a winter theme. With this one, I’m trying to urge spring to get here quicker ๐Ÿ™‚

This and the Victorian House in the previous post, and another house posted further down are for a silent auction at my kids’ school. It will be interesting to see what the interest in something like this is. This is an SVG Cuts file and you can find all the fun here.

Victorian Row House – in Paper

1 02 2017

img_0963I have fallen in LOVE with 3D paper projects.

This was part of the Parkside Row kit from SVG Cuts. If you’re interested, you can find out more about this fabulous kit here.

I googled Painted Ladies (because somehow I remembered this random name) and used those as inspiration for color and decoration. I modified a few things, used embossing folders (have I mentioned I really like texture, too?) ink, and markers.
