Sentimentals - Owl Card

This is another background made from "Linen Closet" matstock...I used the owl from the Sentimentals cartridge.  I used bright blue jewels for the eyes and I thought it would be nice to put 'just a note' on the envelope the owl is carrying, it might be better if I had a stamp.

I might work on that.

Sentimentals - Metallic Silver Butterfly

I really liked the way this card turned out.  I've left a space on the top for a sentiment.  I'm thinking it could be about anything from a happy birthday, thinking about you, a really nice one for sympathy.  The card's background is made from "Linen Closet" Matstack by DCWV.  I love the soft glittery colors.

The butterfly is made from black paper on the bottom and metallic silver on the top, from the Sentimentals cartridge.

Gypsy Wanderings - Owl

This card was made by putting two owl backgrounds together with the gypsy.  I cut the top layer out in a flowered paper and added a bow with a brad and some google eyes.

It says "You're a hoot" inside!

Sentimentals - Bee Card

Here is a little bee card I made from the Sentimentals cartridge, I welded two shadows together at an angle to make the fold on both sides of the wing.  It's 5.5 in long to fit in an invitation envelope.To finish it off I put a little gold bow on it's neck and gold studs for it's eyes.

Don't worry, bee happy-have a great day :)

Gypsy Wanderings - For You

Just a simple card using the flower and "for you" in Gypsy Wanderings.

I used a jeweled brad for the center of the flower!

Just Because Cards - A Little Pickup

I love this little pick up, and what a great card for a friend that is feeling low.  I really didn't do much except cut out all the parts and put them together!

Paper Doll Dress Up - Clam Card

I made a clam card from Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.  I welded two clam shadows together at the bottom for the clam card/insides in pale aqua so it would look like it was under water.  Then I used an iridescent pearl white paper for the clam outside card.

I thought it was appropriate for my turtle to hold it up for photographing!

When you open it up there are some little fishes and a mermaid holding a pearl.  So far it has no sentiment!

Paper Doll Dress Up - Birthday Wishes

Here's my first card from Paper Doll Dress up.  A genie coming out of a lamp made of shiny gold paper-- to give you birthday wishes.  I made the smoke out of velum, one piece behind her and one in front of her. If I had it to do over again I would make 2 lamps and glue them together to make the lamp stronger.

I wish you have a good day!

Animal Kingdom - Pepe Le Pu

Somebody is going to get this for valentines day next year! Made with Animal Kingdom cartridge, Pepe is sniffing a flower-made with a silk flower held in with a brad-and is in a rather amorous mood as evidenced by the crystal hearts :)

It snowed yesterday, so I was in the mood to make Christmas Cards-no time like the present to get started.  And I got my Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge today.  I've already got some great ideas so stay tuned!

Animal Kingdom - Brown Chicken Brown Cow

After posting my Chicken Bacon Ranch card it struck me that I needed to make a Brown Chicken Brown Cow card, so here it is.  It was hard to find so many different brown papers, and whoever "herd" of a poka-dot cow.  Good thing we can have some fun  with that kind of stuff!  I'm thinking I might have to give it to my daughter for her birthday :) hope she doesn't see this!!  The cow was made in Animal Kingdom and the chicken from Country Life.  Have a good day.  It's snowing like crazy here, but we really, really, needed it.
