Through Stampin’ Up, I learned a technique using an ink pad and a sponge to make a background. This is another way to do that using baby wipes and reinkers. With this way you can use multiple colors at one time. Pretty neat if you ask me.

Valentine's is Coming Up Sooner Than You Think

A beautifully cut victorian heart with two lovers inside. It is set on a white card with a lacy diecut border. The inside is blank for your own personalization

For those of you who are artists and card makers, I used the Cricut cartridge “Victorian Romance” and a large Ek paper punch to cut the border.

What is Christmas without a Pretty Kitty under the Tree?

This smug looking kitty was fun to make. I went through my die cuts that I had saved up and put this card together. As usual, I embellished with multi colored crystals for the ornaments and a cute plaid ribbon for his neck. He is for sale on my Etsy site. See the link below for him and other cards.

Send this to someone who loves animals and then have them frame it to be enjoyed during the next holiday season.

Eggshell Mosaic Card

This is my version of the card mentioned in the last post. it is pretty laborious to make but fun. It involves taking the membrane out of soaked eggshells, crushing them on the base shape, applying mod podge, using droppers of alcohol inks to splash with color etc. If you want to make your own, see my previous post for the link.

This is a card that was inspired by the geraniums in my garden. I just posted something on growing seedlings in the house and thought I’d share this card that I made for my Etsy store, especially seeing as how I now have geraniums coming up again!.
