Thinking of You Card

January 16, 2018

Do you enjoy creating cards to give to that special someone?  I created this sweet card using Really Reasonable Ribbon January Valentine Assortment, vintage inspired image and pattern paper.
I tucked some of the Sweetheart Blossoms under the bow.
Then I added a Flat Back Pearls on top of the lace that is in this month's monthly assortment.
Homemade cards are a great way to tell that special someone just how much they mean to you.  

Wishing you a wonderful day, dear friends.

Really Reasonable Ribbon January Blog Hop

January 13, 2018

Hello ribbon lovers!   I am joining the Really Reasonable Ribbon DT Members for the January  Blog Hop. 

 I used the beautiful RRR Monthly Valentine Mix. It contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards!  
To create this Love You card, I used the lace and ribbons from this beautiful Valentine assortment and added the Pearl Heart Slider.
 This was such a fun and easy card to create.
I hope you enjoyed a little creative inspiration.  If you would like more inspiration, visit the other Really Reasonable Ribbon DT Members.  

Have a wonderful day, dear friends.

Art Journal - Together the Best Place to be

December 27, 2017

I wanted to share one of my newest art journal pages "Together".   I used some beautiful ribbons, flowers and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I used the beautiful ribbons from the December Monthly Ribbon Club - Back to Basics.
Then I added Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to Assorted Daisy in Mixed Aqua.  I tucked Mulberry Paper Leaves under the Daisies and added Antique Bronze Flower Charm.
I then added a vintage photo and some of my artwork to the page.

Wishing you a creative day, dear friends.

Art Journal - Silent Night

December 26, 2017

Silent Night is one of my favorite hymns.  I created this easy and fun art journal page using the Winter Deer Family  and Snowflakes die cuts.
I colored in the deer and snowflakes with watecolor and then letting dry.  Next I added white pen to add more dimension to the deer.
Then I added a little glitter glue for shimmer and mica flakes for more interest.
This is a simple page that looks beautiful in it's simplicity.
I hope this inspires you to add some pages to your art journa.

Merry & Bright Soldered Ornament

December 22, 2017

Some of my favorite Christmas ornaments are handmade, especially this little merry and bright soldered ornament.
I created these ornaments to give to family and friends.
Everything looks better under glass. 
What ornaments are your favorite?

Art Journal - Home for the Holidays

December 20, 2017

Art journaling is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to create smaller works of art.  Die cuts can add interest and whimsy to these small creations.
I used the Cottage Cutz Vintage Holiday Car and colored in the image with watercolors.
By adding layers of watercolor, I added shading to the car.  For small die cuts, it is easier to leave them in the die cut scrap when coloring them in.
Next, I added glitter glue to the die cut to give a little shimmer.
Then I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in assorted colors to create the background.
Wishing you a creative day, dear friends.
