Another watercolor scene

 I tried my hand at another watercolor scene with Art Impressions stamps. I had just barely started doing the watercolor part when I dumped water across it! 😱  I decided to salvage it, drawing over the lines with the fine end of the marker. I still need LOTS of practice doing watercolor.

Shadow box card

I created this shadow box card by using a piece of hologram cardstcok cut 4.25 x 11.5. The short sides are 1.5 inches and the front and back are 4 inches. (score at 1.5, 5.5, 7, and 11)  A half inch tab at one end is adhered to the other end to make the box. I used a Kat Scrappiness double stitched square die to cut out the window. Before assembling I decided I wanted to add a slider to the window and had to create another frame inside for the piece to fit between. I flocked all the moose.

Valentine card v.2

This is a variation of my previous valentine card. I needed a different sized card but didn't want to spend time thinking of another design. It worked out well for both card sizes. I used another stamps to make it a bit different and also a different heart die so that the image would fit inside. I've entered it in the Kat Scrappiness January card challenge

Valentine card

I made this card to fit a business size envelope. It's a little shorter but you can make a card base quickly by simply scoring an 8 x 8 piece of cardstock in half. The small stitched heart was cut with the Kat Scrappiness double stitched heart dies. Hearts come in different shape styles and I love this one.

Spring cards

I made these cards as part of a challenge to do a 'monoprint' which was basically transferring ink from one item to another. In this case I used a die-cut which was inked, spritzed with water, and pressed onto another piece of paper.

A simple but festive card.

Winter wishes card

I thought the snowshoes paired well with the forest critters background paper since both have to do with the outdoors.

Let it snow

Winter/Christmas cards are fun to do.  Just now I got an idea that this simple snowman die would also work great for a window scene.
