Help for Ukraine

 Hello,

Ever since the horrific war in Ukraine started, I have been donating all the proceeds from my Etsy store card sales, and matching sales amounts with our own donations.

I was hoping I would do better, but it is still better than nothing.



The cards in the video are the ones that have been sold so far. I hope to sell way more, so that we can help even more the brave Ukrainian people.

 Героям Слава!

Take care...

Exploding Box Butterfly Birthday Card

 Hello,

I made this exploding box for my friend's birthday.









I found this free printable 4"x4" paper design and added some sentiments to some of them. I used Tim Holtz Flutter stamp and die as well as Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Camellia Complete Petals dies to create this exploding box scene. I attached butterflies to acetate strips to make them look like they are just fluttering around.

Underneath the flowers is a doily that I embossed with a an old embossing folder, I believe it is a Darice scrip folder.

Floral Cards - Stand with Ukraine

 Hello,

I normally don't post my world view on this blog, but I simply can't stand by and watch Ukraine be invaded.

I decided that all the net proceeds from sales in my little Etsy store be donated to Red Cross of Ukraine.

I made a couple of cards that are in colors of Ukrainian flag, but all other cards proceeds will also go to this cause.





 I hope my fellow card makers will join this effort and donate the proceeds from their cards sales...

Let's try to make this world a better place...

Take care and thanks for stopping by.

Elegant Floral Card and a Flower-making Tutorial

 Hello,

I would like to share a card and a flower making tutorial.


I used Spellbinders 3D Embossing folder Decorative Applause to create the background and slightly brushed it with pink ink.


I added hand made flowers and bow to decorate the front. I created an easel card and added sentiment onto Spellbinders Opulent Ovals die cut.





Here is how I created the flowers:


 I used Cricut to cut these particular flowers. I used pink and Speckled Egg ink to ink centers and edges of the flowers.



I shaped the petals and created indent in the center of the flowers.


 I glued two flowers together, then I added some yellow floral stamens in the center of the flower.
