White Anniversary

Another card with two pieces of "card parts." The embossed image was done who-knows-when with a small Cuttlebug folder. I matted it with silver paper and a strip of vellum with white stripes and mounted it on foam squares. The background piece was also in with my parts, but only since last fall.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

July Calendar Page

And here is my July calendar page. I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut all the pieces for this page. It was a lot of gluing to make fifteen calendars, but at least I didn't have to die-cut all the pieces!

Embossed Christmas

Two more card parts used up on this card. The embossed image was one of them. I matted it with red and mounted it on foam squares. I believe it was done with a Cuttlebug folder. The embossed background was another piece from my stash. I'm not sure how it was embossed, but it was done about eight years ago. It was probably either a Sizzix/Stampin' Up! folder or a texture plate.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Birthday Wishes

I got Gina K's new Stamp TV kit, and this is the first card I've made with it. I used watercolor paper and stamped the image and embossed it with black powder. I used watercolors for the flower and leaves. The sentiment is from the kit, too. The butterfly is one I made a couple weeks ago using a die for the black part. I glued it to an orange piece for the bottom layer. I mounted the butterfly using a foam square under the body.

Puppy Birthday

Well, not really a "puppy," but "dog birthday" didn't sound as cute:) Another image I've had in my stash for many, many years. It could very well be from Penny Black, but I really don't know. I colored it with Copics and matted. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and I cut it as a banner and mounted it on foam squares. The background was from my stash, also. I embossed it last fall. It was done with something I've never seen before, courtesy of a friend. It was almost a wire-like mesh, as I recall. But I could be wrong! (Thanks, Bonnie.)
