Elf card





I made this card for my Secret Elf on Silhouette Chums FB.
The background paper was made on my Sihouette and then printed and inked with Butterbar
Hero Arts Shadow Ink; the flowers (no-name brand from the dollar store) were stamped in light pink Hero Arts Shadow Ink and in Neon Pink Hero Arts Ink. The bunny stamp is from Mama Elephant Up Up and Away, colored with Copics. The yellow card base is simple construction paper; Other supplies are no-name brand from my stash.

A is for Album

I just love marbled paper-to make it and or to use it in my craft projects. This marbled paper-although not perfect-lent itself well to making an album cover. the imperfect marbling actually added to the design of the cover rather than detracting from it. The felt leaf was just glued on  as a final element.

Velveteen stamping

What a great stamping technique they showed us on Online Card Classes.
Instead of a card, I made a picture for my colleague. You can see on the close up  how the velveteen techniques makes it seem like the cat has stripes.

Still More backgrounds


Making backgrounds

I am taking a great online card class (www.onlinecardclasses.com). One class was dedicated to making backgrounds so I did some experimenting stamping with clear gesso, white gesso, and embossing paste. Here are some of the results.

New Year's Eve project

I wanted my guests to have a special present for New Year's Eve so I made etched glasses for each one. That way they could use their own glass all evening long and then take it home as a gift.
Made with various fonts on my SIL and the Glass Etching Starter Kit. This was the first time I have done glass etching and was relatively pleased with the results.

Feeling Orange

Maybe it's fall, maybe because I work with so many Dutch people, but I like using the color orange in this period...Or is it Halloween????

Fall

I spent ages on this card--and it alas does not show. Am not pleased. :(
It does not somehow fit together.

I wanted to use the small pumpkin stamp I have and combine it with the small cat stamp. (love that little guy) Found both of them at a street fair. They are strange stamps because they have velcro on the back. Have never seen them anywhere else.
