Flowering Branches
Topic: New Work

This is another inspiration piece. The bathroom set is called LAUREN and is from YourBedroomSource.

I used cream cardstock and a Cuttlebug folder. The raised leaves were tinted using a Q-Tip and Ranger distress inks in two colors Old Paper and Frayed Burlap and used a blending tool with the Old Paper to darken the edges of the cardstock. Then I pulled some punched out flowers in cream - in two sizes. These I streaked with distress ink in Faded Denim, layered the two sizes with brads, and curved the petals with a ball-burnisher and craft foam. After mounting the flowers, I attached the feature piece to a piece of dark blue folded cardstock.

 

A couple of curly clips mimic the swirls on the inspiration piece and added a 'dream' text metallic piece with foam tape.

Dreaming of Yellow Roses
Topic: New Work

This card literally came to me in a dream! I used Butterscotch Adriondack ink to stamp my handcarved roses onto cream cardstock. I used a lot of masking to make a small circle of blooms, a large circle of blooms and one single large bloom.

I used a water brush over the stamping to pull yellow into the petals and a bit of green for the stamped hips on the buds. A warm grey marker was used to create shadows for what would be the under layers when the flowers were stacked. This grey was blended using the watercolor brush.

I used foam tape to separate the layers. Beaded line, silk leaves and plastic grasses (used as stems) were glued in and a bow tied on the stems.

The whole bouquet was mounted on irridescent dark-green cardstock using foam tape. Finally, a tag was mounted with foam tape and a gold peel-off greeting attached.

Tropical Garden
Topic: New Work

This bunch of flowers was a full-page ad in a travel brochure that was in my mail this week. However, it originally was a group of three connected flowers plus a single face-on and a single side view. I cut them out of their leafy background and used foam tape to arrange them at three levels. The background is irridescent dark green cardstock on which I glued 'grasses' cut of dark green paper. The back flower is directly on the cardstock level, the triple group at one layer of foam tape and the front flower at two layers of foam tape. 

The text is a texturized sticker.

Sea Journey
Topic: New Work

Does it seem I have a never-ending supply of pictures from magazines? Well, I go to the magazine sale at the library every year and buy up art, travel, photography, history, and graphics magazines and cut out anything that strikes my fancy. These I file - some by color some by theme - and then use them for cards, collage, and such.

 So, here we are again with a photo from one of those magazines. This seafaring scene has been backed with a light cardstock and an ocean map then darkened with Ranger Distress inks. I mounted on a blue folded card base and added a fabric text sticker with the heads of brads on each end.

While I was searching for the right brads I found a clock face and it fit perfectly over the clock on the desk!

Stitchin' in the Sun
Topic: New Work

I had a recent 7-day cruise and took along some relaxing pastimes. Besides reading 3 novels and a book of non-fiction, I stitched up 24 beaded embroidery Christmas cards.

 

Two days before we left I taught a class at church on how to make these two cards. I took all the leftover kits with me and finished all of them!

Now I'm that much more ahead of the holidays!

Frequent Flyers
Topic: New Work

The mottled background was made so long ago I can't remember how I did it and couldn't reproduce it anymore. This is the last piece I have of it, too!

I thought it looked good with this string of birds which is a magazine reproduction of a painting. I cut the illustration out with it's printed framing. The picture and background are mounted on burgundy cardstock and the text is added using rub-ons from a 'travel' set. 

The white corners were drawn in with white gel pen.

Friends Forever
Topic: New Work

I had a Cuttlebug background that perfectly complimented this adorable bunny clipping. I backed each with a different tone of brown cardstock.  

The white text is rub-on lettering and the bubble is a thick acrylic sticker.

Letter Home
Topic: New Work

Another magazine clipping combined with some stickers (seals, black script, and 'family' text) and rub-ons (postage elements) are combined to create this card. The striped background is wrapping paper and the picture border is scrapbook paper.

I used an orange card base.

Basket Case
Topic: New Work

From my file of magazine clippings comes this grat photo of a basket display. I played up the yellow tones with the base cardstock and a thin mat around the photo. The rustic element is echoed in the brown crackle paint printed scrapbook paper.  

The clear text sticker is burnished directly on the photo so the message appears very subtily. It reads "It is the things in common that make relationships enjoyable, but it is the little differences that make them interesting."

Essence of Love
Topic: New Work

This violet mum is created from three layers of scalloped circles in graduated sizes, plus three punched flowers and a flower brad. These, except the brad, were all burnished over a piece of craft foam - some from the front and some from the back -  to create depth.

Other punched flowers and leaves were arranged around for setting. The text is a clear sticker.

Tiles on Tiles
Topic: New Work

A grouping of kitchen tiles from a catalog provides the centerpiece for this card. I pulled yellow cardstock and used the Scor-It to create tile-like lines for a background. After mounting on blue cardstock I added a text sticker and sticker flowers.

Friends are Forever
Topic: New Work

These flowers appeared originally on a birthday card I got. I used the square punch to make the squares and mounted 7 of them on purple cardstock. The two lower right blocks which were white have been replaced with a purple tag on which a ribbon bow is tied. 

I added two vellum text stickers, one on the tag and one along the left side. I used a craft knift to remove the sticker background from the spaces on the left.

Magic Flower
Topic: New Work

Today's inspiration piece is tableware called Evening Sun from Linens n Things. I was inspired by the bright colors of these flowers and chose to use a single bloom in my card. 

This flower is a scalloped circle. It has been cut between each scallop toward the center, the tips burnished to cause them to curve and then the piece is folded in half. The center is a punched dot with one side cut off. I used a marker to polka-dot it.

The leaves are cut from a scalloped circle and the whole thing is layered on orange, blue and burgundy. Those dots down the right side are to pull in those on the flower center and the text is a fabric sticker.

Spice Jars
Topic: New Work

Another photo from the scrap pile... I tore the edges and mounted on handmade paper. This is is layered on scrapbook paper which I rounded with the oval Coluzzle. The dot is a puffy acrylic sticker. 

I used three copper brads at the bottom.

The Fruit of Friendship
Topic: New Work

I used sharp scissors to trim this fruit illustration, then used a craft knife for the inner areas.  Before mounting on the basket-weave scrapbook paper I used a warm grey watercolor marker to  shadow the lower right to add dimension. I used the same marker to distress the border of the tan card base.

The text is a vellum sticker.

It's Pumpkin Season
Topic: New Work

Orange brads anchor this artwork to an orange cardstock which I've glued onto a printed scrapbook paper and then to a green card base. 

The text is added with two fabric stickers.

Dreamy Floral
Topic: New Work

This floral was part of my 'junk mail' this week! I used a Fiskars border punch on both edges and mounted it on yellow to pick up the center of the white flower. A white and a pink ribbon are tied at the top. 

The text is a white rub-on - I love the scrolling font of this set.

A Plum Pair
Topic: New Work

This is the third of the fruit illustrations and I used the same mounting techniques as on the other two.  For this one I added an oval purple sticker with white text and then added a white rub-on below that.

The Pleasure of a Pear
Topic: New Work

Here's the second of the fruit illustrations and again I used some cardstock printed with a canvas painting. I used a text sticker at the top and used a black Sharpie to add lines around it.

Apple Trio
Topic: New Work

Years ago I found an ad with these and two other fruit illustrations. Nicely done, aren't they? I tore out these apples and mounted on a cardstock that is imprinted with 'painted canvas'.

Over the right side I placed a translucent sticker and then used a Sharpie in red to echo the line around the illustration. The whole piece is mounted on a white card base.
