May 18, 2016

Hi all.  I haven't posted for a month and I thought it was about time...Here are some of my most recent cards.

This card is being entered into the Art Impressions Blog Challenge, Laughing With You

 I made this get well card with card stock that I sponged to make it
look like the color of a band-Aid.  I embossed it with the Swiss dots 
folder from Cuttlebug.

 This card was made using a mask in the center and I used peg stamps from
Rubber Stamp Tapestry.

 This is a Zentangle card that I made.  The gem in the 
middle is called a Zen Gem and is done with colored pencils.
I love how the gem looks so real!

 This card was done with colored pencils. I matted it on to
embossed card stock.

I made this card for the husband of a friend that just
passed away from ovarian cancer.

This is another Zentangle stamp that was gifted to me.

I am going to a wedding next week for our former
associate pastor who got his own church last July.  I wove ribbon and
added the tiny pearls as well as the other embelishments.  It
is an easel card.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my latest work.  Please feel free to leave 
me a message and let me know what you think.

Till next time...

Some New Cards...

Hi all.  Here are some new cards that I have been working on lately...

This card was done with Ken Oliver's Color Bursts. 

This was hand painted with watercolors.

This card was done with colored pencils.

This card was originally a Zentangle Inspired Art piece that I did.  I reduced it to
make into a card.  I used colored pencils.  The color is much brighter
than it shows here.

This was hand colored and I used fun foam for the "praying" die cut.

Hand colored with colored pencils.  The inside says
"You are the cat's pajamas".

I was gifted several tangled stamps.  This was done with colored pencils.  This is just one of many...

Another tangled stamp with colored pencils.

This was a very old wooden stamp that I got from my advanced stamping
club.  They were getting rid of a lot of stamps from our library that were not
being used.  The inside says "Just another day in paradise".  It was done with colored pencils.
This card has been entered into's challenge.

Another tangled stamp done with colored pencils.

And yet another tangled stamp.  This is the only one that
I used alcohol markers for.

I used a Stampin' up stamp.  I used colored pencils and put it on the 
inside of the card.  I die cut the frame and Happy Birthday and punched
the butterfly.

This is a stamp that was given to me by another friend from my
stamping club.  I used colored pencils.
This card has been entered into's challenge.

Hope you enjoy my recent work!  I love comments!!

Till next time...

Hi all.  I have several cards to post today.  The first one is for the Imagine That Digi Stamps design team.  This cute image is perfect for a belated birthday card.  I colored the image with alcohol markers and layered it on embossed card stock with a layer of pink.  I added the ribbon that matched the colors as well as the country theme.  This image can be found in the store, here.  It is called A Little Behind and there are some other cute images that are included with it.


Here are some more of my cards that I have been working on lately...

This card folds out and there is a battery operated tea light behind the window.

One of my many Bird Crazy cards.

I thought this sock monkey from Bugaboo Stamps was so adorable.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my cards.

New Cards and a Cute Design Team Card

Today, I am showcasing a cute card from Imagine That Digi Stamps.  I chose the cute punny card called "Love You 2 Pizzas".  The set can be found here.  The set is called Punny Pairs and there are some cute images.  This image was colored with colored pencils.  I added some home-made enamel dots and some punched hearts.  I think you will really like this set.

Here are some more cards that I have made...

This card was done with a watercolor background and I die cut the elements
out of white fun foam.

This card was done with a Stampin' Up stamp in different colors and I 
used a silhouette and black bow for the focal image.

This is a fold-out card with a vellum window.  The window is lit up
with a battery tea light.  I love the look!

This is one of my favorite Bird Crazy birds.  

I made this card for a friend's birthday.  She has a pet frog so
I thought a frog stamp would be in order.

The background was done with Ken Oliver's Color Bursts.  The silver
elements were done with plumbers tape that I adhered to card stock
and die cut.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my latest products.

Punny Card and some others...

Hi all.  Today I am showcasing a new card from Imagine That Digi Stamps.  This month we are doing "Punny" cards.  I chose the adorable Otter be Mine.  You can find them here.  I have been feeling under the weather lately so I must admit that I didn't put a whole lot of effort into making my card.  Sorry about that.  Anyway, I used colored pencils to color the image and cut out a heart shape with fancy sizzors.  Then I glued it on the cardstock and added washi tape and some sequins.

Here are some more that I have made lately...

 Watercolor background with Bird Crazy by Tim Holtz stamps

 This is called a Zen Gem.  It is done with watercolor pencil and Zentangle.

 Done with Copic markers.

This one is done with watercolors.

Hope you enjoy seeing my work.  I would love for you to leave me a comment!

Happy New Year!

I can't believe it has been 2 months since my last post.  The Imagine That design team was on hiatus and I am now, just getting back in to the swing.  

My first card is one that I did for the IT design team.  I just love the way that Kris draws her cute animals.  This is no exception.  I decided to keep this card CAS (clean and simple).  I used colored pencils to color the image and added some home-made "enamel dots" that are actually perler beads that I melted down so they would look like the enamel dots which are very expensive to buy!  I used the png image so I was able to put the happy birthday on the balloon.  

This set can be purchased in the Imagine That Digi Stamp store, here.

I am adding some other cards that I have done on, lately. Some of them are Christmas cards...

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my work.  Thank you for looking. 
I would love to get your comments!

Till next time...

New Kitty Card and More...

Hi all!  Today, I am showcasing a card from Imagine That Digi Stamps by Kris.  The name of the stamp set is Hanging Kitty.  I think this set is just adorable.  I printed the image on watercolor paper and colored it with watercolors.  The image was cut out and mounted with Spellbinder dies and embossing folder.  I added a circle of gold gel pen around the circle and added some Christmas ribbon to the bottom of the card.  The inside says "have a pawsome holiday".

I am including several other cards that I have been working on these past few weeks.  I have been really busy with special orders, etc.

 I just love this saying...

 ...and let's not forget Chanukah...

I love this character!  His name is Pipi and you will probably be seeing more of him.

Hope you enjoyed your visit.
