watercolor for cardmakers

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Well I got the new Paisley Cart also for Christmas!!! What a fun little cart. It screams for bright colors and embossing to me!!! Seeing as how I need to replenish my Birthday stash I thought this would make a good start!! This card is a 5X7 and i pulled out my sewing machine to try my hand at a little stitching!! I cut the owl at 31/2 inches and he just layered up super. I have so many flowers that this card seem to find a home next to the owl. The Ribbon and the stamp i used I have had for I dont know how long to long to remember where it is from!!!!

Nick's Office Cards

Nick, my son, asked me to make a few Christmas cards to give to a few people in his office!!!  Of course I in all my calm unstressed life said sure!!  I thought i could give him a few of the ones I already made.  But he asked that i give him four of them that I hadn't posted because he was afraid someone would of already seen them!!!!! Then he asked me to wait to post them so no one would get a sneak peek!!!  I made four!!!  This one is the guy one!!

Used some pop dots to lift the deer on the card!!!  I Just got Christmas Noel this year and just love the cuts on this cart!!! 

The cards for the girls in his office got the swirly xmas tree which i was really looking forward to using!!!  I cut them out in four different layers so that they would pop off the card better and be a little better when handling the card.  Made them in three different color style papers !                                                                                                                        

I was somewhat pleased with the out come and would definitely make this card again!!!  I did do embossing in gold and matching colors for the sentiment on the cards!!  Made the the lettering stand out more than just stamping or using my computer for the sentiment at bottom of these cards!!  Colors are somewhat non traditional but hey I am a little like that myself!!!

Well I probably wont get in my little haven until after the holidays to create much!!!  Really need to make some New Years Resolutions so that I am not so stressed next year when Christmas rolls around!!!!  Have a Blessed Holiday Season  everyone!!!!

Snowflakes I picked up at Big Lots last year also!!! The bird seed is stickles a cardmakers must!!! Doodled the snowman up stuck a ribbon around his neck for a scraf and used a G Studio $1 stamp and voila another Holiday Card!!!

Another Gingerbread Card

Well I am stuck in a mode of gingerbread!!!!  Needed to make a few quick cards to try and finish up my cards!!!  Something I can make a few of in little time!!!  Christmas is sneaking up on me fast!!!!  I just love the gingerbread man from Stretch Your Imagination.  He looks like he is dancing across the paper no matter where you put him!!!!!  He is cut at 31/2 inches and used the paper from AC Merrymint.  also used a little sentiment stamp from G Studio love those $1 stamps!!!!  This card is a 51/2 in square card that I have loads of so I am sure most people will receive something in this size this year.  Well I hope you all enjoy this and let me know what you think of my little guy!!!
