Vellum and Softness...

Time for another pretty card to show to you again.  I stamped the pretty flowers and attached vellum on top of it after embossing the outer edge.
My intention here is to see it more blown up because the vellum really hides a lot of the color..
I sent it off to a friend for her birthday while being in a hurry and not taking real good pictures to post here.  I'm sorry its kind of hard to see.  Anyways....hope you have a wonderful week?  Thanks for dropping by!

Christmas Project Peek....

Christmas is just around the corner.  Before we know it will be December and those who still send Christmas Cards out will be scurrying to get them in the mail to those near and dear.

As for me... you know that I make my own cards each year and send out approximately 40 cards to friends and family out of town. is a few surprise shots of my upcoming card to share with you this year.  I began a little over a month ago and try to do them in small doses so I don't become overwhelmed.

Cutting and embossing begins.

Each card drying after stamping on my table and small end table in living room. 

Stay tuned for more with a view of the finished product.  A little closer to Christmas time of course I will post it and also another post of my projects that I give to my special church friends for a small homemade gift from me each year.

Watercolor Blowing....

I've seen when others take watercolor paint and add water to it and blow on it to form the paint to a free form.  I like modern art and had some shinny paper and decided to give it a try.
The background tuned out very soft and pretty with purple, pink and a tad of yellow splatters to my card.  I like the way it turned out and wish my picture showed it better for you. all! Leanne

My Own Watercolor Tulips...

By no means of the imagination do I really have any real artistic ability or a gift for painting. However, I got inspired one evening and decide to try and use my watercolor paint and brush to try and form pedals and tulips.  No stamps this time.  
One thing I do like about water-coloring as it can be forgiving when forming a flower.  It just leaves the eye to have its own imagination of a flower with out being to specific. 
I liked the way it turned out and sent it to a friend after her surgery.  Perhaps,  I'll try to do this again sometime soon?  I found it fun and rewarding not using stamps this time.

Happy Retirement ....

Recently a neighbor of mine was retiring from her job so I put together this quick card with one of my favorite stamps and made her some candies to match with computer printer labels to match the color.    I used my Stampin Up wheel and while running it across each label  and applied little flowers from a punch I had and put green glitter in the center.
I have small 3 x 3 cello boxes I purchased a long time ago and put a bit of white straw on the bottom and put a small "For You" label on it and took it to her.  Her reaction was delightful!
