THANKS BERRY MUCH

Image
Hello Friends!

While sifting through one of my old boxes of images, I came across this little  guy.  The coloring was pretty faint, so pulled out my Copics and re-colored the image.  Much better the second time around.  I embossed the background red card stock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, added a forest green base to the image, and glued it all together.

Do you ever find old images that you rework?  I have done it, and usually like the end result better when I've put it away and forget about it for awhile.  It's like painting.  Sometimes I get to a point where I'm not totally satisfied with a painting, so I put it away and won't look at it again for awhile.  When I get back to it later (could be months later), I can usually figure out what I need to do to finish it.  Funny how that happens.






Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping! Hugs, Geri

SORRY, I MISSED YOUR BIRTHDAY......

Happy Weekend Friends,

A quick post today.  Here is another Tim Holtz crazy bird.  This little sweetie is colored in pink, so it must be a girl birdie.  This is a card I made in a swap with my ABQ friends.  Thanks, Karen, for the cute design!  

The balloon is popped up with dimensionals, as is the gift.  Super fast and fun card.






 I'll be back later with a new card.  Thanks for stopping by to visit.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY PATRICK AND YVETTE!

Happy Weekend Friends!

Today's card is one I made for our kids.  Patrick and Yvette are celebrating their 22nd Anniversary.  Happy Anniversary kids!

This is another Graphic 45 card.  Lots of fussy cutting on this one, and a few different patterns of paper for layering.  The base is an ivory card.  I used a piece of ivory grosgrain ribbon and a pearl with brass brad on the ribbon.  Underneath the grosgrain ribbon is a piece of old lace.  The butterflies have dimensional tape to pop up the wings.  Also, I darkened parts of the dress and butterflies with Prisma colored pencils.

Inside of card

Hubby took the picture of the inside of the card and it turned out a little wonky.  It's actually straighter than it appears.  lol   Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back later with something new.

A GRADUATION CARD FOR CHRISTINA

Image
Hi Friends,

I got on a Graphic 45 kick and made three cards. The first one is one I made for Christina, who just graduated from Nursing School, at the University of New Mexico.  A wonderful accomplishment, and to top it off, she's a really lovely young lady.  Her parents are bursting at the seams. 

There's some fussy cutting involved, and layering of different patterned papers.  Tiny pearls were added to the coral frame.  Hard to see, but click on the pic, and you'll have a better picture.  Loved the white and coral balloons in the background, and they were perfect for celebrating her graduation.



Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back later with another Graphic 45 card.
Hugs, Geri 

MR. CRAZY BIRD

Hi Friends,

I'm sure most of you are getting ready for the big Labor Day weekend.  Summer's last hoorah.  Love the cooler weather we've been having, but I suppose all too soon I'll be complaining about being too cold.  Argh....

Today's card is one of Tim Holtz' crazy birds.  I used Derwent Watercolor pencils to color him on watercolor paper.  The corner die is by Tim.  The brown swirly wreath-looking die is by Stampin' Up.  I used distress inks to darken the corners of the scrapbook paper used under the die cut corner.  You may have to click on the picture to read the sentiment.  Cracked me up when I read it.
