Happy Birthday Shelly

I always forget to take pictures of the birthday cards I make and post them. This time I remembered.

Happy Birthday to my dear friend!

Pumpkin Wheelbarrow

Even though Fall has passed, I still love the look of glitter pumpkins, barren trees and wheelbarrows. It’s a very cozy look and sure to make anyone sigh and crave a hot beverage.

Hope you all are having a cozy week!

Vintage Masculine Birthday Card

Masculine Birthday card with embossed
clear card stock

I wanted to try a different way of inking clear card stock. I embossed the clear card stock and then used alcohol inks. The effects were amazing and so much fun. This embossing folder is called Handmade Paper by Tattered Lace.

I used alcohol inks on glossy card stock to make the background for my vintage car. A simple design but very fun to create.

I hope you try some of your different embossing folders with this technique. Stay tuned for more backgrounds.

Enjoy!

Winter Forest

Decorating for the holidays is one of my favorite things to do. I love seeing all of the hand made ornaments from when my kids were little, playing Christmas music and baking cookies.

This project is child friendly and they make great gifts.

I want to give a shout out to the Craft Depot team. They have great selections of vinyl for all of your craft projects.

For those of you who attended the Scrapbook Expo, you know what an awesome experience it is. For those who have never gone, it is a must. Various craft vendors under one roof, free demonstrations, free projects and a great place to meet other crafters.

This year I met a wonderful lady named Faith Sauber in the Crafter Depot booth. She had a fantastic display of various vinyls. I have never worked with vinyl before, but I love to learn new things. Faith gave me a patterned piece of vinyl to work with and this is the project I created.

I mixed a little vinyl with some hand made country flowers.

Thanks for the inspiration Faith! For more projects, etc ., visit Crafter Depot
