Mardi Gras - Time to Celebrate!

I really like creating easel cards! This one was created for a Mardi Gras card swap hosted by celestial_stamper on splitcoast.

Apple of My Eye

I joined a "material girl" swap on splitcoast hosted by stampinggooddeeds. The theme of the swap is to stamp on fabric. I had lots of ideas running through my head but went with stampining on a pot holder! The pocket of the potholder has a recipe for Apple Crisp and a denim die cut flower attached to the corner.

The deets: stamp set Country Apple; distressed inks. A sizzix diecut was used to cut out the flower from iron on patches then inroned the cutouts together; the flower is attached to the recipe card. Embellished the project with deco buttons and ribbon.

Copic Class Advanced Projects

These cards are part of the advanced Copic Class I attended this past Saturday. The airbrush system was used on the card posted on the top. We did lots of blending and shading and used the blender solution and texture to create Hanna's paper pieced outfit in this bottom card. All in all, I enjoyed the class and learned a lot, but know that I have a long way to go to get the desired blending and shading, practice and more practice will be the key!

Copic Class Projects

I attended a Copic marker class this past Saturday. I need to practice, practice, practice! But I do love the cards we made. This set of three cards were created in the beginners class. Practice, practice, practice!
