Graduation card

 Hello everyone,

I would like to share with you a graduation card:



I used Cricut to cut the graduation hat and a Spellbinders die to place a hat on.



I made flowers using flower punch, and large flower stamen. I tucked in some dried baby's breath flowers underneath the Spellbinders die.




I made the elegant ribbon bow using seam binding ribbon.

Bright Colors Witch Wreath Card

 Hello all,

Welcome to my blog. I would like to share with you my latest make:



I used bright green paper for my base, added bright orange paper, embossed with Darice Harlequin embossing folder and I inked edges with TH Twisted Citron Distress Ink.



 

I created the Jack-o-Lantern wreath with the Cricut cupcake cutouts that I placed to shape a wreath and welded them together before cutting, than added the Witch cutout in the middle of it. Boo is also a Cricut cutout.


I then added some dried moss and little orange flowers that are actually a ribbon that I just cut at each flower connection to get individual flowers out of it.



To finish my card, I added a bunch of tiny bats, also Cricut cutouts that I mounted on thin acetate strips, so that they can look like they are flying around.

Jack-o-lantern in a Window Card

 Hello,

Just wanted to show my latest make:



I created a shadow box to give a dimensional look into the window and Jack-o-lantern peaking through it.



I used crackle paint on the shutters to give it old and creepy look...



I recycled plastic cover for Cricut mat to create illusion of the glass window and egg carton for bricks around the window.



I made a flower container and added some moss and little blue flowers. Behind the window, you can see old looking drapes, made with cheese cloth that I pained with black Dilysions spray and Jack-o-lantern distressed with some black and brown ink.

Ornate Poinsettia Christmas Card

 Hello everyone,

I hope this post finds you well and safe.

I would like to share one of my Christmas cards today:




I used 49 and Market Christmas cardstock and Heartfelt Creations Large Poinsettia die and stamp.



The card turned out quite dimensional and ornate, I think....


Sentiment is a generic die that I bought on Amazon, no brand name, but cuts great and looks really nice.


One more look at the finished card and box it comes with.

I hope you enjoyed stopping by.

Take care and stay safe,
