A Trio of Butterflies

When I was getting ready for last Card & Chat class, I decided to break out the butterflies.   We did some watercoloring using Aqua Painters and ink pads to make this butterfly card that I blogged about last week.  But then I decided to show how to use the Aqua Painters in a different way.… Continue reading A Trio of Butterflies

Blank Card, Stampin' Up!, Valentine’s Day

Not Your Traditional Valentine

When you think of Valentine’s Day, what colors immediately come to mind?  Ruby Red?, Pale Pink? Bright Pink?  Powder Pink? Cranberry Red? Maybe a little white to go with all that red and pink?  How about green?  Green’s not on your Valentine radar?  It wasn’t on mine either, but Soft Sea Foam Green was one… Continue reading Not Your Traditional Valentine

Taking a Bird Break

Taking a break from the Christmas madness to bring you some beautiful birds. They kind of happened by accident.  A class to make Christmas gift bags and treat holders was cancelled when life got in the way and several people weren’t able to come.  It left just one....my friend Karen.  She loves birds.  Blue birds.… Continue reading Taking a Bird Break

A Christmas “Pop Up” Surprise

Do you love surprises??  I do!  Especially when it comes inside a present.  Did you know you can make a card that looks like a present and then hide a gift inside?  How about a card like this?  Usually I’m just expecting to open the card and see a familiar signature wishing me happy thoughts.… Continue reading A Christmas “Pop Up” Surprise
