Viking Valentine Card

Offspring3 found this stamp for my birthday…with one of the neighbor’s kids in mind. The oldest neighbor kiddo is 5, and she is a chatterbox. She has been a viking the past 2 Halloweens, and she even gets her Daddy to dress up, too.

I made dots with my Copic markers for the ground – I was thinking rocky, dirty terrain, with a little ice/snow mixed in.

Supplies: Stamp – Avery Elle, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Red Glitter, inks – Copic B0000, C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, , E00, E15, E23, E41, E53, E57, N4, N7, W3, W7, T3, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Hickory Smoke, Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (hearts), stencil – Inky Antics, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – MarkerPop.

Christmas Card for Jacob

I read about a card drive on Facebook (and one of the stamp company blogs, maybe…I went looking, I can’t find the post). Jacob Thompson is 9, has a late stage cancer, is not expected to make it to Christmas. He wants Christmas cards, and he likes penguins.

Christmas penguins I have.

Peace to Jacob and his family.

Floral Mother’s Day Card with Embossing Paste

Last week, Ellen Hutson’s blog, The Classroom, was featuring Tonic Nuvo Embellishment Mousses. I have none of these mousses. They do look lovely, fun to play with. I really don’t know how often I would use them, and knowing that, how in goodness sakes would I choose which ONE of the 24 colors to buy??? Pink Flambe because hot pink is my favorite color? Or Aquamarine or Powder Blue for the sky/ocean possibilities? In reality, if I do eventually splurge (it is not in the budget for the foreseeable future!) on ONE, I would probably get Pure Platinum, because who can’t use a neutral metallic.

I have a two embossing pastes (clear, white) by Dreamweaver, and these can be colored by adding ink before spreading, and I can potentially sprinkle glitter on top after spreading (before it dries).

Today, I just spread the clear over a floral stencil. This is a card for my Mom.

Supplies: Stamp – Clearly Besotted, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Calypso Coral, Real Red, ink – VersaFine Satin Red, stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing paste – Dreamweaver/Studio 490/Wendy Vecchi translucent, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – MarkerPop.
