Well it's been quite an unusual week in Dallas, Texas. We have had freezing temps, ice and snow. Since I don't enjoy driving in this type of weather, I decided to hunker down in my craft space and create. I would like to share a couple of cards that I have made recently.
I made this card using the Arianna Blooms Collection from Heartfelt Creations. This card measures 6 X 6. First, I stamped the image and colored it using Prisma coloring pencils and mineral sprits. I used an oval scalloped die to cut the completed colored image and matted it with the next size up oval die in matching blue cardstock.
I stamped and cut the blooms out of matching blue cardstock and shaped the flowers. The leaf swirls are a Sizzix die called Butterflies and Flower vine that I cut from white cardstock and then lightly inked with a green stamp pad.
The sentiment came with the Arianna Blooms Collection and I embossed it on white cardstock with gold embossing powder and my heat gun. Then I bordered it with the matching blue cardstock. I cut a separate piece of card measuring 5 3/4 X 6 and I used a Martha Stewart punch called doily for the border around the east and west edges. I completed the embellishing with pearls and there ya have it. Done. I hope this card inspires you to make something beautiful today.
Hi. I am a blessed wife and mother of a wonderful 6 yr old little boy. I have always had some type crafting in my life. At a young age my mother taught me how to sew on our family pool table, which I thought was so cool. Then as teen a family friend taught me cross stitching and I did that up until I saw an Anna Griffin Christmas card making kit on HSN for sale. I bought it and haven't looked back. I love it. I'm addicted. Anyways, I hope you enjoy my site and I hope you are inspired to create something beautiful. I am looking forward to hearing your comments and hope you come back frequently to see what I have for you. Blessings and Peace to you. Diane
