Happy Sunday everyone. My girls have been on winter break and my parents came down for a visit, so not too much crafting time this week. I do have a couple of things to share, however. This first card uses a stencil made out of a cover plate as taught in this week's Make it Monday #201. I used the Triangle Cover Plate, and colored my embossing paste with a few drops of Harvest Gold reinker. I was going for a partial look, so was purposefully messy around the edges and did not use the entire cover plate.
I am also linking up at ColourMe #59 and Simon Says Wednesday, where the challenge is to add a little texture.
Don't groan, but I used more paint chips (showing different wood stains) on this next card. I was inspired by this heart, and thought about making something similar using all different types of wood grain. I used a 1 inch square punch and then cut the squares along the diagonal to create 2 right triangles from each square. My sentiment is a die cut word from SSS, layered up 3 times and then covered with Glossy Accents.
I made this last card with my mom--she wanted a card for a friend turning 80, so I used the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #111.
My mom is very short and my oldest daughter is very tall--I love this picture I took of the two of them right before my parents left my house.
That's it for me today.
Thanks for Visiting
