Beach Shaker Card

I've had some beach sand in a container in my studio since one of my kids did a school project ... and that was at least 6 years ago! I've been meaning to make a shaker card with it, and now is the time.

See how the sand moves ...

And the inside ...

Plant Lady

I haven't made cards since before Christmas ... time to dig out some of those new supplies that I bought last year, but have never been used!

On my first card, I coloured in with distress inks, but not using watercolour card.  Not the best results, but I will still use it.

On my second card I did the background with distress inks and Taylor Expressions brushes.

The plant lady and plants were coloured with Copics. This will be for my mother ... she is an amazing gardener!

I also made some plant labels to stick in a pot when planting seeds.

Rejoice! It's Christmas morning ... and we celebrate that our Saviour is born!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas! 

The gift of joy
The gift of love
The gift of peace
May all these be yours this Christmas

Then I used one of the other little angels ...

Here is the pair of them ...

Festive Branch

It's the last challenge at CASology for 2019. How this year has flown by! The cue word is BRANCH.

I started with the Alexandra Renke Branch with Leaves die.  I used some of my patterned paper stash and added white enamel to highlight the berries. Added a button - more stash reduction!

Come and be inspired by a visit to check on the creations of the design team. Looking forward to seeing your take on the cue word.

Happy Birthday

I have a few friends who have Birthdays in December so here's one of my cards.

Love this colour combination. 

The embossing powder I used for the butterfly is Gold Pearl - which I did on vellum.

Joy to the World

I'm always amazed at what makes me buy a new stamp set ... sometimes it's just one image among many, sometimes it is a special sentiment in just the right size and font!

I love the small sentiments in the Merry & Bright stamp set and paired them with the layered tree from Favorite Season.

This was my first card ...

I thought that the string would perhaps be better at the bottom  - and I added more trees on this one ...

The Merry Christmas sentiment in the tree was embossed in silver to match the silver string, and silver liquid pearl dot.

Floral Squares Card Set

Here's a quick way to make a set of cards AND use up some of the stash of inked paper I have.

Go through your stash of inked cards. I have a lot of these because when I have finished a project and there is still some distress ink on my craft mat, I spritz it and smooch a piece of card to use up the ink.

I die cut the set of Floral Squares from Pinkfresh studio, and played around with the papers to see which ones I wanted to use.

Here's the full set done.

Unfortunately, this white linen card stock had warped.  I must flatten it out with the weight of some heavy books.

On this one, I kept a strip of the inked card to add to the edge.

I love the flow of this one.

Grounded in the earth ... floating towards the sky.
