Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Welcome to my blog. This year just flew by for me. I can't believe it is 2020. That sounds so futuristic to me! How about you? This cute llama from Just For Fun Stamps is ready for a New Year's party!

              I had fun playing with my gelli plate and masking.

        I hope the New Year will bring many blessings your way!
                 Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Patterned Paper #24

Hello and Merry Christmas! This year just flew by for me. I can't believe that this is my last patterned paper card for this year. For the New Year I will start a series on backgrounds. I have hundreds of backgrounds where I have played with many techniques. I need to use them up as well, so I hope you will check back on my blog in the new year and see all the many ways to make backgrounds for your cards.

I used strips of patterned papers to make the Christmas tree. This little penguin from Fiskars was colored with alcohol markers, fussy cut and pop dotted to the card. The background is also a piece of scrap patterned paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a very Merry Christmas! May God bless!

Patterned Paper #23

Hi and welcome to my blog. I can't believe that Christmas is almost here and that I only have one more card to make for my scrap patterned paper series! Here is a Christmas card that I made using die cut snowflakes cut from various patterned paper scraps.

The snowflake dies are from Spellbinders and the snowman is a Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp that I colored with alcohol markers and fussy cut. The saying is also from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to make the "snow" at the top of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Peace & Joy

Hi and welcome to my blog! I hope that you all had a very nice Thanksgiving. We have had warm weather here for awhile, but today feels more like Christmas. I want to share a Christmas card I made using this cute little mouse on his snowboard. I miss seeing my boys snowboarding. They are now grown and we are empty nesters. This little mouse reminds me of those fun times.

I cut out the Tim Holtz Christmas tree,  applied Color Bursts around the cut out, then inlaid the tree into the cut out. I added clear glitter glue on the tree. The image was stamped and colored with alcohol markers. I used Diamond Dust glitter on the bottom of the card. The saying was computer generated. I created a banner for the saying and adhered it to the top of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope that you will be blessed with peace and joy this Christmas season!
