Be back soon

Dad passed away suddenly last week.  Have been dealing with all that needs to be done.  And now I'm having computer issues so not posting until I get that fixed.  Hope to be back at it soon, but wanted to let you all know why I not posting for a bit.

IO Heart card



After stamping the heart that was posted yesterday, I saw that there was enough ink left on the heart that would give me another image.  I just added another spritz and stamped on white paper.  Yeah!  It worked!  Stampendous has a nice filigree set that was inked with a Distress pad and was stamped on the heart .  The words are by Mama Elephant.  The paper is by Doodlebug.

IO Heart


This heart by Impression Obsession is a favorite of mine.  There are so many things you can do with it.  Today I took out a nice juicy Kalidacolor "Calypso" pad and ran it across the heart.  It was lightly spritzed and stamped.  The words are by Mama Elephant.  The background is by Deep Red and is stamped with a pigment chalk pad.  Tomorrow see how I got a second card out of this one inking by the rainbow pad.

Embossed Friends Card


This is one of those cards that I made with one idea in my head but what was coming out wasn't the same.  Sometimes you have to let go with what you were thinking and embrace what you have.  Because what you have is good- just different from your expectations.  If you can do this it saves you a lot of frustration and disappointment.  What I ended up with here was a card where the hearts were embossed with colored embossing powders on a white card.  The words are by Rivercity which was sponged around the  edges with Distress Peacock ink.  Bright and cheerful!

Printworks truck



Oh dear, this did come out fuzzy!  It was a card made for a friend recovering from heart surgery and I sealed the envelope before I checked the picture.  Well, I'll check before I do that again.  Since this card was for a guy, I thought he'd enjoy the truck.  It was done on light tan paper and then was further colored in with colored pencils.  There is a slit in the back bed of the truck so the word piece could be slid in there.  A large blue circle was die cut and attached to the front of the truck.  The rest of the card is made from printed paper.

MFT Heart Die




This is the same die used on yesterday's card.  Same idea, but this time the hearts have the color and the background is white.  Think this is my favorite.  The nice part is since the die was used for each color, I have lots of hearts left to make more cards.

My Favorite Things Heart Die




I'm loving this new heart die from MFT.  They come all attached so you can run them all together on one piece of paper.  First though, I embossed them with numerous embossing folders and then ran the paper with the heart die.  I wanted to have white hearts here, but felt they needed a little bit of color because the designs didn't show up enough with the pure white.  Hearts were attached with some foam squares.
