Happy Easter

One of the things I'm doing this year is being a prayer buddy for a student at my parish school, part of that duty,
in addition to praying for him/her (obviously) is to send a card now and then to let them know that prayers are coming their way.  This is the Easter card I sent. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Wild Prairie Rose from Stately Flowers 7

On March 10th Melanie Muenchinger posted a video on Stamp TV of the white wash technique (you can see it  here-White Wash Technique).  It is so beautiful that I had to try it, and try it I did, again and again.  I ended up making many cards.  I started out just making my Easter cards then I decided to make additional for other categories such as birthday and sympathy.  I'll be posting those later but for now I will just post the Easter ones.  After I had finished my white wash Easter cards done on kraft card stock I thought I would try the same method on color card stock.  Well I liked the look of the white embossed flowers that I never did the white wash, but I will try it soon. So for now here are the white wash Easter and the embossed Easter.  All items used are Gina K except for the embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you like them.

Paper Piecing

I picked up a cute Unity stamp set at Archiver's a while back and I found these images great for paper piecing.  The clouds are Papertrey Ink.  Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

A Southwestern Scene

I have a box full of Rosie Roadshow stamps and I made a promise to myself that I would start using them.  Among the stamps are these adobe houses and the cacti. I think they are the cutest things and they make a great scene.  Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by.

How an Embelishment Can Fix an Error

One of the many things I've learned in card making is that when you goof up a card it is often an opportunity to embellish. This card is an example.  I had this card all done and as I stamped the sentiment it was crooked. Darn! So I covered it up with ribbon then deliberately stamped the sentiment crooked.  All of the elements for this card are from Gina K Designs.  Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
