I am only half joking as I write the title of this post. The high temperatures in the last week have been in the low teens to single digits. I am not a winter person. No sun = little ambition. Cold + no sun = no want to do nada. I’m not a math person either. Just FYI. In spite of all these calculations I have been making stuff. I’ve been making lots and lots of cards.
A pretty and girly card
A grungy card for mom using hand carved (by me) stamps, ball chain, altered ribbon, resin coating, and engraved foil tape.
Lots of mists, modeling paste, glass bead gel, Twinkling H2Os
Embossing, inks, and stamping
Back to the pretty pink and flowers, fussy cutting and ribbon
A tri-fold card with super patina and distresssed metal (started out shiny brass)–love this card!!!
Modeling paste, Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, Inkagold pastes, and Silks
3D stencil paint, embellished Blue Fern Studios chipboard
All alcohol ink mixed with different mediums, except for the heart and wings which is colored with Inkagold
