Sympathy card Faux silk


Hi,
I have no need of a sympathy card just yet but the poem here just cried out to me to make one.
The dandelion is from BeaOriginal site (sorry, at the moment I can only give you the site but not the link) and the poem is by Jerry Ham of Spokane, WA.  He writes the most wonderful poetry.  Jerry was kind enough to give me permission to use it on this card.
The card is done in my latest favorite technique (faux silk).  I cut the dandelion with my Silhouette Cameo and then used the pen and the Cameo to draw a silvery gray one on the envelope.  The faux silk is done in a silvery mauve tissue paper.  I think I like how it turned out. :)
I am sure you will have to click on the poem to read it.
Have a Blessed day.

Gone fishing birthday card

Hi,
Since my brother -in -law loves fishing I thought some of the Stampscape stamps would make a nice masculine birthday card.  I also used the off stamp to put a little interest on the envelope (sort of like a watermark).
Not much to say about it.  I used 3 stamps to make the scene.
Have a Blessed day.

Faux silk card

Hi,
Seems I might just be getting some of my mojo back.  This is the fun technique of faux silk.  I found the instructions all over the web but France Martin is the one I followed.
I don't have the proper pens for coloring so used some of my ink pad and a blender pen.  The results were not really what I had hoped for but practice makes perfect so will have to try again.
Have a Blessed day.

Halloween Easel card 2014

Hi,
After I posted the card from 2015 February and March's birthday party at Jim's residence I went looking on my blog for the other paper napkin cards I have made and realized they never got from the camera to the blog.  So here is one of them.  The technique for fusing the napkin on the cardstock is pretty simple but I have found you need to use the good cling wrap as the edges do tend to curl up after awhile so using a border seems to hold them down.  Also some napkins are 2 ply and some are 3 so they need to be pulled apart very carefully to make sure all layers come off.  There are a lot of how-to's on You Tube.
Hope no one minds a Halloween card in spring.  lol
Have a blessed day.

February and March Birthday Walden Heights

Hi,
Oh yes, I know it has been a very long time since I have made and/or posted a card.  I really am trying to get back to doing this but, for some reason, it is not going as well as I had hoped.
Walden Heights Age Care facility, where my husband lives now, has a birthday party once a month. Due to illness they had to cancel February so the two months were celebrated together.
They often have live music and dancing etc..  They also have cake and juice.  This is the napkin that the birthday people receive with their cake.  I fused it onto card stock and since it seems to be the rage right now I made this into a shaker card with little music notes.
Since round or oval shapes are hard to place the pop dots around I used fun foam and cut out the shape and attached everything with my Xyron.  Works slick without too much fuss trying to get the sticky pop dots just right.  Plus, the fun foam has no sticky edges for the little music notes to stick to or get loose.  The envelope is pretty big but since I will hand deliver it I didn't worry about making it smaller to fit the card.  :)
Have a blessed day.

Bird's butterfly as a birthday card

Hi
Just a quick little card for my grand daughters birthday.  This is a file from Bird's Cards.  It is a lovely easel card.  This one is very petite and the blue is sparkly paper.
The little flowers are a sticker from eons ago.
Have a Blessed day.
