A-choo!! Boy, it's been a while! The dust has settled over my blog....let me dust things off and show you a bit of what I've been up to lately!
I've made quite a few cards, some were even for challenges...unfortunately, I didn't get them photographed in time for the said challenges...so I'll just share them with you now.
This card was made by cutting out the roses with the Cameo, then I paper pieced the red and green behind the cut outs, added a strip of red down the side and stamped on a sentiment...super quick and easy!
This card was from waaaaaay back during the online watercolor class I took. I used stamps from PTI and stamped the image on watercolor paper with versamark ink and them heat embossed the image in white. Added some water to the paper and then touched each area with a little color. The sentiment is also from PTI. This card was made entirely with watercolor paper as a one layer card.
This card was also made during the online watercolor class. It's difficult to see here, but I mixed a little perfect pearls with my water colors and used that to paint the flower and leaves that had been stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white. I cut around the edges of the image and then cut the rest of the panel into a rectangle. Sentiment is from PTI.
I've seen lots of cards lately with the layered angled cut piece, so I thought I'd give it a try. Both this card and the next card were my attempts with this technique. I think I like it! The card above was super simple...just cut the "hello" from white card stock, then cut it again into the Kraft card stock and did a little paper piecing to get all the pieces back together. Added a white stitching line around the Kraft piece.
This card was a little more difficult...more fiddly, but was done the same way. The exception on this card was that I popped the angled layer up off the card base.
I've also been "re-learning" tatting. I tatted years ago when I was making clothes from my girls, but haven't touched it in years. In re-discovering tatting, I've learned that it can actually be done with a special tatting needle...and I've been working on mastering tatting with a needle rather than a shuttle. I'll have to get a few pics to share with you some of the things I've made in the last few days.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...
