Love This Butterfly!

This little butterfly is from Memory Box, and I love it!  This card is for a friend and uses all that's good in card making.  The die, the sentiment (Cricut Calligraphy) and the embossing folder (Cuttlebug) make it sweet.             Until another day...

Pretty Flowers

Today's card is from MissKateCuttables.  There are some cute things at her store!  This one took a little time to put together, since there are so many parts, but you can put them together in any way you want.  I'll add a sentiment when I decide how I'm going to use it.    

Until another day...

Turtle Love

Hello!

I'm really trying to be a more productive card maker.  This one was for my husband's birthday.  He loves turtles.  The cut file is from Lettering Delights.   Until next time!

Valentine Monkey

This little cutie is from Miss Kate Cuttables.  So cute!  I used the Darice embossing folder and chalked it to give it a little bit of color.   He will surely make the recipients smile!


Until next time...

Gel Plate and Dreamweaver Stencils

Hello, again!

Today's adventure is using a Gelli Plate.  This is the homemade version, so I guess I really can't call it a Gelli Plate, so I'll refer to it as my HM gel plate.  It works well, by the way.  

Today, I've combined it with my new Dreamweaver Stencil, hexagon.  Fabulous stencil.  I know I'll be getting a lot of use out of this one.  My HM gel plate is close to a standard card size, so these will be used in future cards.

For this design, I placed the hexagon stencil on top of blue paint.  I then added some yellow and green paint.  I really don't plan things very well, so it's always nice when a print turns out to be one I like!

The second one I'm going to show you uses the stencil that was painted upon.   I just flipped it on a print I had already made.  I like the grunginess of it all.
Here's a close-up.
The bottom layers used a rubber stamp and acrylic paint.

Until another day...

Miss You

Operation Write Home is always looking for some "Miss You" cards, so I thought I'd make a few.  Here are today's cards:

   

This one uses a digital stamp (please send me your information if it's your design) and watercolor pencils.

  
Here I've used the Cricut Paper Lace cartridge and the DCWW Citrus stack mat.  Isn't it colorful?

Until another day...

Better Late than Never

I missed last weekend's Virtual Card Making Party over at Operation Write Home, but I did get a couple of cards done, anyway.



Both cards use backgrounds that I made with my JellyPlate (my home made version of a Gelli) and a bicycle cut from a Cricut cartridge.  

If you haven't checked out Operation Write Home yet, go to their website to see how you can help.

Until another day...
