I'm slow but moving forward. This is only four cards made for Christmas. Not a great start but better than not starting at all. This is for the caschristmascardchallenge that is rainbow this month. I used a Poppy Stamp Grand Madison Fireplace die for the mantel. The stockings and fire are Lawn Fawn. I colored the stockings with Copics and used a WOS pen for the white tops. Also added orange and brown WOS for shine to the fire after coloring with Copics. The bricks were made with a Stampendous metal stencil and blending brush. The sentiment is Impression Obession.

I'm delighted to announce that my youngest grandson was sworn into the Marine Corp. a few weeks ago. He will be a reserve while he is in college going one weekend a month for training. Then he can decide what he wants to do from there. This is the card I made for him. My hubby, his grandpa, was a Marine so I had the stamp I used inside the card that says Carpe Diem, Seize the day from Verses Rubber Stamps. The decorations are from Paper House and the congratulation stamp is from my stash. He leaves the first part of June for boot camp.

I'm sending Easter Blessings to all of you today. I'm also posting a card that I've shown before but it is one of my favorite cards I've ever made. I couldn't decide if I liked it with the purple or white cardstock. The white card is brighter.

I could hardly get the door open this morning to let Daisy outside. The wind is blowing so hard and the cold is back. I wish the weather would make up it's mind. Cold one day, 72 the next. We had thunder overnight and that scares her so bad. I sleep on my side with my legs drawn up and she slept right up against me in that space shaking me and the bed for several hours. I am tired this morning.
I learned this technique from Loll and it's called faux mother of pearl. You start by pouncing frost paint with bunched up plastic wrap in places over the cardstock. Let it dry completely. Then using two similar colors of ink, add a light coat with each color ink in places over the cardstock. Then you can go back and add it darker. Then buff over the cardstock with a paper towel to bring out the shine of the frost paint. I added a die cut from Simon Says Stamp because I didn't want to cover up the shine. I hope you like this and here is the link to her video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTAAKBABV1s.

Good morning, stampers. I'm sharing another card made in a zoom class. This technique is by kwernerdesign.com and makes an image look so pretty. I used a stencil and makeup brush to color it. Then you just softly brush color around each image. I love how this turned out. All I did was add a sentiment.

http://casmixup is celebrating their birthday this month with the
Be kind to one another.
challenge. It was introduced by Print Making by Kathy Racoosin and it is fun. This is the card I made for the challenge. I used Sizzix flower dies and watercolored them in Distress Inks. Just laid them down on the background when wet to make the print. The host for this months celebration is Bonnie.
Be kind to one another.
