#62 Sing Us A Song

"Look of Love"

I wanted to try something different so, I colored this card on acetate.
Not an easy task and not sure I'd try this technique again but I did learn a lot from it.

I used Copics and Spica (the eyeshadow).
The heart was a die cut from Silhouette.

Christmas Time Birthday

My beautiful daughter's birthday is on December 28th.  When she was (finally) born I made a promise never to celebrate her birthday on Christmas.  She gets 2 celebrations at Christmas time.
This is the card I created for her this year.  (Age not mentioned haha)


I used a Silhouette cut out and free paper I got from one of  my magazines for the background.
To spruce it up I used jewels along the outside edge of the "frosting" and centers of the peppermints.
I hope you like it and I hope she loves it.

Please leave me some love and let me know what you think?

A New Year's Wish

This is a card that came to me as I was making it.  I had a general idea but, well here it is.  Please leave some kind comments??

I used an image from "Faery Ink"  

There is a great deal more glitter to this card then the camera picked up.  The snowflakes, feathers, hatband, fur and the hands on the clock all are glittered.
You can find this image at the Faery Ink shop.

I used Copics, Spica glitter markers and Stickles.

Wedding Card

My Nephew married his beautiful wife and they wanted a handmade card from me.
There colors were gold and turquoise.  I kept my card gold an white.  I had purchased some beautiful papers just for this event.  I used a gold foil and a creme color with gold foil flourishes in the paper.  This was the result.


I hope you like it as much as they did.
Congrats to both of you.  We love you both.
