Thinking of You

I have a friend who is not doing well health wise and I am hoping this card will bring her some cheer. The stamp set is Empty Nest and the paper Miracle, both from CTMH.

Happy Spring

Today I went to Jazzy Crafts and made this card using Marci from La-La Land Crafts. I was so excited when I saw this little picket fence in the store along with Marci because Irina, from La-La Land, has a project on her blog, Everything Paper Crafts, using the fence. I am so happy with the way it turned out.

Timely Bird

This past weekend a good friend of mine took me to a class at an out of the way scrapbook store. It was so much fun to get out and play with mixed media and learn how to "Junque." After the class, I spent some time shopping and came across this stamp called "Timely Bird" from Hero Arts. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but once I got home I started playing and came up with this card. I stamped the image in Barn Red ink and went over the bird with a blending pen. For the flower, I used Sunflower and Sorbet ink. And for the leaves I used Topiary ink. Both were done with a blending pen as well. After my image was colored, I took some Perfect Pearls Mist and went over it with a light spray and gave some shimmer to it. Then I took some Stickles and gave the flower center a little sparkle. The paper is from Bo Bunny "The Gabrielle Collection" and K&Company "Julianne." The ink is from CTMH and the flowers are from Recollections. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
