Sending you sunshine

Recently I came across a box from Artco in Rexburg Idaho. This company does wedding invites and stuff. You can get envelopes and odds and ends by the pound from them. 

The background of this card is a paper from them.  The die to cut the word is from Stampin Up.

Altenew Vintage Roses

I splurged and got the Altenew Vintage Roses stamp and die sets.  I have been stamping some of them and not having a lot of luck designing the cards.

I found a set of Altenew inks today at the Craft Outlet today.  I stamps a bunch of yellow roses and leaves today. Rather than using one of the yellow ones, I used a couple pink ones that I stamped before.

The background paper is paper from ArtCo in Rexburg Idaho. I found a box of papers today in the basement.

I will post more cards with the flowers I stamped but here is the start.

The background paper is pearlescent which the photo does not show of course. 

Paper pumpkin - March 2018

I am pretty sure I am just about done with paper pumpkins. I paid for three last kits and I just don't see myself getting more. This one makes a set of five cards that fits into a box. There are 20 cards and four boxes in total. 

I followed this kit pretty much the way they recommended. I changed a could of the sayings around. 

I also stamped the "thanks" right on the cards. 

Sweet Birthday

I got a couple different girl dies recently. Here is another card I did with one of them.
The words are a sticker.

Painting class

I went to one of those wine and paint classes. I don't drink wine but I was hoping to meet people and I liked the painting they were doing.  The company is called Painting with a Twist.

The teacher was nice but I think I was the only one not drinking or there with a group.  I was a little disappointed I didn't get to visit much with people. 

This is an in progress picture. 

The class added some big branches and some stumps but I felt this looked more like the beach at the cottages. 

I will warn you that my photos of my painting are always better than the actual painting. I am not sure why that happens. 

A friend just came back from Italy. I asked her some of her picture to try and paint one.  We will see how that goes. 


Lighthouse Cards

I made 4 of these cards. They are each a little different.  This picture is still in progress.

It took a lot of maskng to get this effect. 

The inks were mostly Stampin Up but I also used the same Hero arts inks I used on the flamingo card  recently. I used Tim Holtz sponge applicators for the blending 

I got the die for Happy Birthday from eBay. 

Have a Creative Day!

Sweet Girl card

I got this die on eBay. There was no brand on it.  So of the pieces were a bit tricky to figure out but once I got it, it was pretty easy.  I will be making more of her. She is adorable. 

The background paper was scraps again. I have a lot of those and I am trying to use them up. 
I made this to try and sell at work. I have been gathering cards to do that with and found I was short of birthday cards. 

This is the words inside the card. The stamp is from Stampin Up.
