I am a wife to Ron and the mother to 3 kids: Alexis, Jake and Cian. We are expecting our newest miracle Grace Elizabeth on or around December 12th 2011. I love to scrapbook and make cards and want to share my passion with you! Thanks for looking!
Recently I went to my uplines house and we made a clear card. It is an acrylic card that comes with a clear envelope and it allows you to really layer your design so one thing shows on top of another and creates a really cool final image. I amm going to teach this technique at my next workshop in November.
The paper is called Olivia and is perfect for Fall. It showcases two of our new colors called Pear and Sunset. The cards come in packs and you can get round ones, square ones or scalloped. I recoomend using Tombow adhesive so that glue or other adhesive doesnt show through the clear part as you layer the card.
The workshop is going to be fun. I will post more details such as cost in another week or so. If you will be in the Murfreesboro area or would like to be just to come see me and the baby...ha ha ha... let me know and we will hook you up with all the supplies!!
One of my friends father passed away yesterday after an extended illness. I wanted to send her a sympathy card. Since I am a new Mommy again, I am a little short on time and resources. I made this today while my baby was napping. It was very quick and requires little paper and just a few cuts. But I like the way it came out. During times of grief I think simple works the best.
The butterfly is from a stamp set called Celebrate Life...very fitting I feel. I used the CTMH blending pen and used three different color inks to color the image after I stamped it. The colors I used were: Brown Bag (main image color), Autumn Terracota, Garden Green and Barn Red. This is the first time I have used our blending pen and I thought it was neat...might need a little more training on technique but it was fun and is an inexpensive tool to add to your scrapbag.
I pop dotted the butterfly to add some dimension and then stamped the "thinking of you" image underneath. That stamp is in the color Garden Green and comes from the classic set called Say It In Style. I hope you enjoy the card. I am glad to be back and it was nice to create something again!!
