Some of my projects ...

Please be patient with my as I try to get this blog exactly how I would like it to look.
I am still waiting for the best header and color combination I can make/find.
Things will likely be changed up a bit in this process.

A Few New Cards ...

Here are a few new cards that I've made in the last 2 days.

Yesterday was my daughter's 4th birthday, and this is the card I whipped together for her Saturday night. We were so busy planning and preparing for her party and wrapping her gifts and such, that a card had to take a back seat and get done when I could get it done.

For the cupcake, I stamped "Happy Birthday" in the background with watermark ink. After I stamped the image, I colored it in, and then highlighted it with Stickles.

My mom has been in town for the birthday. We had an opportunity to spend some time yesterday and make a few cards. I showed her how to make an explosion card and a waterfall card. This was actually the first time I'd ever made either one myself, but I'd seen tutorials on both of them before.

Here is the explosion card:



Here is the awesome tutorial by DAWN GRIFFITH that I followed for the explosion card:

Here is the waterfall card:

You can't really see it on the waterfall card, but each of the stamped images has glitter on it too. I just used my Gelly Roll glitter pen to color over parts of the image after it was colored in.

Here is the awesome tutorial from DAWN GRIFFITH that I followed for the waterfall card:
