Last weekend I went to Scrapbook Island for their annual Holiday Faire. They had a fun make 'n take featuring Gina K's foiling machine and papers. This tag turned out so pretty! I had been starting a card earlier in the day using some pretty washi tape I had, and found that this gorgeous tag worked perfectly on it! It is so lovely and is even more so in person.
Time to get my foiling machine back out to do some creating!
This was my card for our October chat. Attendees had a choice of making their card vertical or horizontal and also 2 different greetings. I applied a sticky-backed adhesive sheet to the back of the foiled card stock before die-cutting. It was then easy to apply to the embossed card.
This was my card for the August stamp 'n chat. I got the idea to layer the dove onto black die cut pieces from Lynda Parker of the UK. It helps to give some dimension to the card. I do love this beautiful stamp set.
My niece is having a wedding shower in a few weeks and I decided to make a money cake. After looking on Pinterest for some ideas, here is my creation. I even purchased a cake box and decorated it. I hope she will enjoy it. :-)
Each of the Easter cards that I created this year was a unique creation. I sent this one to my son who is a priest. I love how the background makes it look like the sky and reminds me of the pictures that we see of the Resurrection.
My nephew in Australia is getting married next month, so I made this wedding card for him and his fiance. I put Wink of Stella on the bottom cut-out die. It is difficult to capture how lovely it turned out.
This was my card for a shoe box swap with my friends. I used watercolor pencils to color in the butterfly and then aqua painters to smooth and enrich the color. On the outer edges of the watercolor paper I used the direct to paper ink application and then smoothed it out with the aqua painters. I really like how the detailed butterfly that is layered on top brings out that extra pizzazz.
