Hello everyone! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. I sure did. I have been so busy cooking, baking, and crafting that I haven't posted in quite awhile. I hope you understand.
I love to bake. Here is something new I tried this year. I have had these 3 dimensional cookie cutters and I made cookies that stand up. Here is a picture of some of them. They were fun and delicious!
My younger brother wanted a hand made card. I made him this snowflake card. It turned out all shimmery and icy looking. I loved it.
My mother requested some handmade Thank You cards. I made these today. I will enter them in the Hero Arts monthly contest. I tried to capture some of the shimmery accents I added in this picture below. It is hard to see, but I highlighted the flowers with a yellow Stardust pen my Sakura.
Here is what the whole card looks like.
I made a set of six, but here is three of them. I couldn't fit the whole set into the picture. I'm sure you get the idea. I used craft card stock for the base of the card and some blue and yellow label shapes that I cut on my Silhouette. I stamped the flower on ivory card stock with Sepia colored ink by Ranger and colored them with PrismaColor colored pencils. The centers are popped up to add some dimension. I chose the stamps and colors to really look natural and still pretty. I don't always use yellow, but I like how it looks here.
I hope all of you have a Happy New Year. Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at what I have been making.
