Play Day

Just another play day with my gal pals; Deb and Lorna. 
We all take turns designing a card. The first card is designed by Deb. We LOVE birds!!!
I had some issues with this one as I tip toed over the stamp with markers and I didn't get very good coverage. My stamped image was spotty at best. So I then had to go in and add color and lines. 
In the end I was pleased with the way it turned out.

This card is a CAS I CASED from Leah's Cards. I watched her video and copied her card.
 This one is another card designed by Deb. I love this new stamp from Stampin' Up! Right now the name escapes me. But I really enjoyed coloring the flowers. If you have any questions about this stamp you can contact Deb at . Deb is my Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
We had a really fun day. I am truly blessed to have these two ladies in my life. I love them so much.

Have a great day.

It's a new technique for me.  Below is the card I made with my Bokeh piece. 
In photography, bokeh (Originally /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ BOH-kay — also sometimes pronounced as /ˈboʊkə/ BOH-kə, Japanese: [boke]) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light"

I started my project by cutting watercolor paper to 4.25" x 5.5". Then using my Aqua painter I saturated the paper. Then using an acrylic block I dropped 3 drops of Re-inker inks in Calypso ?Coral, Poopl Party and Wisteria Wonder onto the block. Then I simply dipped the tip of my aqua painter into a color. Then moving over to my paper, I gently squeezed some ink onto the wet paper. Cleaned the brush and chief another color then repeated this process until the paper was completely covered with color.

When the piece was completely dry;  
Here's where the light effect comes in. I used a circle stencil and daubed white in various circles, overlapping a few. 
I trimmed it to desired size, stamped my sentiment and added pearls.
Then I stamped the inside. 
All done!

If you are interested in the Bokeh technique, go to YouTube and search Bokeh Sharon Armstrong. I watched several different videos. But Sharon's explanation and demo worked best for me.

Using my Christmas Presents

Hi! Happy New Year's Eve!!!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year.

Now to my Christmas presents. 
Below is a card I made using a book my hubs gave me for Christmas. The book is titled Paper Pop Up by Dorothy Wood. There are 40 dynamic designs in this book. I chose to make the Mother's Day Magic card. Simply because it was something new to me. Outside sort of plane and simple (not the design in the book).

Inside a POP OUT vase for some pretty little paper flowers!

Following the pattern in the book, I traced and cut out the vase for the flowers, away from the green decorative cs. I cut the vase into the light pink cs and pushed it through the opening in the green cs. (You can see a little shadow from the flowers I glued into the vase.) I added Ranger liquid pearls to the vase to dress it up a little. 

Hope you like it.

Christmas is passed

I sure hope this Christmas was a blessing for you. Mine truly was. We got to spend the holidays with our family. It was so wonderful. We had such a great visit with my parents, sister and our children and grandson. Time flew by of course. But we made the best of it.

My hubs gave me a Light Pad for Christmas. Here I used a deep purple cardstock and some Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder in Desert Moon Turquoise. I love Lindy's eb powders because they all have an iridescence to them. The photo was taken using my Light Pad. It was all totally an experiment. BUT, I love it!

What did you get for Christmas? Was there 1 special gift that you like most? Or were they each a great gift? 

Thanks for peeping in today. 

I wish you a very Happy New Year 2015! 
May we all be blessed with health, wealth and happiness!

Hello! Yes I am finally back. It's been quite some time but I am happy to say, my leg is healing up very nicely. Doctor seems more than pleased, so, so am I!

Below is a card my youngest asked me to make for her to send to a pen pal in Bulgaria. They play an online game and chat together. They both like penguines and she is a Thor fan and he is a Batman fan. So to some of you this card will make absolutely no sense. To them it will be perfect. She's coming by today to pick it up. I wanted to get it posted before she comes. That's why I didn't get the photos all tidied up before posting. 
The sentiment reads: save santa a naughty.
 I printed 4 of the superhero images and cut pieces for a 3-d effect. The sentiment reads : wishes for a Christmas that's Super!
I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving. Ours was very nice. My sister came and brought my parents and all of their dogs. I only got a picture of my sister's Rat Terriers, Gracie and George.

Now to get to my Christmas card list.

Please take time to enjoy the season that is upon us. Don't get caught up in the hustle and the bustle of it all. Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season.

My oh my

I know I have been MIA for quite a while. Well it's due to some health issues that require me to sit with my leg elevated.
I miss making cards and miss all my crafty friends. I will be back as soon as I possibly can.

Thanks for noticing me.

Remembering the fallen on 09-11. God bless.

Colour Me...!

Colour Me....! #32 - Monochromatic Pistachio Pudding. I have a friend who just loss her mom so this card is for Monica in Louisiana. I hope it brings her some comfort in her time of sorrow.
For the face of my card, I inked up a square acrylic block with Pistachio Pudding ink. Then stamped that down onto Whisper White cs. Then using Basic Gray ink I stamped the largest stamp from SU set Just Believe. With Sympathy is also from SU. The set is Loving Thoughts. I used the Tulip Border EF from SU. SU grosgrain ribbon.
 I stamped one of my favorite sentiment inside from Sweet & Sassy Stamps set #1073 His Eye is on the Sparrow.
It reads; "When Jesus is my portion a constant friend is He. His eye is on the sparrow and I know he watched over me." I also stamped the large floral stamp from SU set My Friend.

Here's a beautiful little FREE Birdie image from the AMAZINGLY, ARTISTICLY talented Susanne Rose! When I saw a mixed media project she'd created using this little one I knew I had to have her too! So Susanne sent me HERE to download her for FREE!

Now once I had that little file on my computer, I couldn't wait to get out my Prisma Color Pencils and start coloring. It's an easy image to color and I "flew" through the process!

Today I am featuring this little cutie on my creation for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #148. Enjoy!

Just in case you'd like to play along with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made below is the sketch.
