Christmas Wreath

Happy Friday again! Today I have a Christmas card to show you. I have wanted to make cards with Christmas wreaths for a long time and this year I found the perfect (in my opinion, anyway) die set to make a wreath with and so here goes. I made this one very traditional.


I cut a lot of pieces with the Spellbinders die set as I was not really sure what how it was going to work out. I assembled the parts that needed assembly and then cut a circle using my infinity circle dies. I created the wreath by adding the parts to the circle, of course spending an inordinate amount of time in deciding on the arrangement LOL. I cut a bow out of red foil cardstock for the top of the wreath and cut the sentiment from the same red foil cardstock. I adorned the larger flowers with a gem center and the smaller flowers with a gel pen center.


I created the card by adding a panel of ivory cardstock which I had run through a brick embossing folder inked with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide ink on the correct side so that the grey went into the mortar spaces on the embossed panel. I used the Honey Bee Stamps woodgrain dies to cut the planks and I applied some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink. Once I had glued them down, I used a brown colored pencil to add the "rivets" to the corners.

I completed the card by adding the wreath and sentiment. I have cut supplies for some more of these same cards and for some in non-traditional colors. I was so happy with the result.

Broken Heart

Hello friends, unfortunately I am back today with another sympathy card to show you. This one is for a lady who lost her eldest son. I decided to depict some imagery on this one for her.


Daisy cards

Friday again! Today I have a few encouragement cards to share. I made 5 using the same technique, but different colors. I am always fascinated by the emboss resist technique and so that is what happened on these cards.


Rings of cardstock

Today I am here again with another sympathy card. This one went to a friend in Florida who lost her husband. I used another technique that I learned in the "Crushing on Cardstock" course that I did recently.


More fairy gardens

Today I am back again with some fairy gardens. I had another play with my Whimsy Stamps Build a Fairy Garden die set and created these two cards.


October at Crafty Chefs

It is the first Tuesday of the month and so time for a new Crafty Chefs challenge. The two ingredients for our card recipe this month are "Do some coloring" and "Use dry embossing". Here is my example make for the challenge.


Happy Duck

I cannot believe that it is Friday again and also that we are in the last quarter of 2021!! But it is so. Today is Friday and so I am back with a project to share with you. Today I have a special digi. It was a pencil sketch that a special lady drew and I converted into a digi.
