Get Well Cow

This is just a simple Get Well Card. It was very easy & fun to make. After stamping the background I cut 3 sides of the square & folded it down, tied the ribbon around it & fastened it down with the brads. I stamped the little cow on white & layered the 2 together. This can be used for any occasion just by changing the saying.
Thanks for looking...............Rita

Father's Day

I was just fooling around the other day & this is what I came up with for my husband for Father's Day. I don't know why it scanned darker through the middle, it's actually all one color. I just love the wiggle eyes. Thanks for looking. Have a safe and Blessed holiday weekend........Rita

The red background layer was done by brayering Rose Red on glossy card stock, then adding Versa Mark ink directly to that. Add Iridescent Ice Embossing powder & heat set. It really sparkles. The other colors are Chocolate Chip & Mellow Moss. Thanks for looking.......Rita

Husband's B'day card

My husband loves his truck so I decided to make this card for his Birthday. The colors are actually lighter than the scan shows. I'll find something in my computer program to print for the inside of the card. That's me driving the truck. Ha, ha! Thanks for looking........Rita

This is a technique called reverse embossing. You emboss with clear embossing powder and then sponge the color on top of that. I used a lace background, tore the top layer and inked the edges. Thanks for looking. All comments are welcone.....Rita

Trading Cards

These are from a color challenge swap I was in. I did 2 groups, each a different color combo. The butterfly was embossed & is shiny but the scan doesn't show it. Thanks for looking...Rita

Thinking of You

My colors are not scanning very well. This is not Pink & Red, it's shades of Pink. It's a Shaker Card & I tied a butterfly charm to the ribbon for a little extra color. Thanks for looking. All comments are welcome....Rita

Chicken and Stars

Something must be wrong with my scanner, these colors aren't really this dark.
This is a Get Well card I did to go in a pack of cards for my cousin. It's a shaker card & I put pasta stars in it for Chicken and Stars Soup.
Thanks for looking & have a Blessed weekend........Rita

Thank You

Not sure I like how this one turned out. I added the twill tape with staple bars after stamping thank you on it. The coloring was done with chalks & a blender pen. I don't know, maybe it would look better without the twill tape. Thanks for looking....Rita

More Faux Stitching

You can't tell from the scan, but Thinking of You was embossed. I did Faux Stitching, which is paper piercing & a white gel pen. Thanks for looking.......Rita

Bet you can't guess how I did the background on this one. I did this at a workshop & since I don't have this stamp set I can't duplicate it. However, this was a lot of fun & I can do the background again. Give up on how I did it? Okay, I put rubber bands around a brayer, rolled it in the ink pad & then onto the card stock. Instant background! Thanks for looking & feel free to leave comments....Rita

I really like how this card turned out. I did a lace background & then layered the butterfly on top. After I finished I decided to outline the butterfly with glitter. I love the way it turned out. This has to be one of my favorites. Thanks for looking. All comments are welcome..........Rita

Get Well

I just love this little hot water bottle. I cut it out and attached it with pop dots to make it more dimentional. The blue card stock was run through a crimper. Thanks for looking.......Rita

This card can be used for any occasion. I used a punch on the corners to attach the stamped piece.

Brayer Technique

I made this card at my monthly workshop. We did three different brayer techniques & this was one of them. The trees are embossed. The little black dots are not supposed to be there. This is what happens when I don't use my Embossing Buddy.

Thank You

Did this one yesterday. I didn't have the color ribbon I wanted so settled for this. It has a little red running thru it but I don't think you can see it from the scan, also the saying shows up better than the scan shows. It says, Just a little note to let you know how much your kindness means to me.
Thanks for looking, all comments are welcome........Rita

Get Well

Nothing fancy here. The image is watercolored & I put pop dots under it. The corners were punched with a corner punch. Thanks for looking........Rita

Another Shaker

This is a Thank You Shaker Card I made while just fooling around. I used my die cut machine to cut out the buckle & filled the shaker with micro beads. Thanks for looking....Rita

Shaker Card

These are always fun to make. I used a punch to make the balloons that are on the inside of the shaker. I really think this would have looked better if I had colored the Hedgehog.
Thanks for looking.....Rita

I was playing around yesterday & came up with this card. When I finished it I thought it needed something else so I added the bar staples. Now I'm not sure if maybe that was a bit too much. You decide. Thanks for looking...Rita

The first white layer was cut with decoritive scissors. The second one I used a corner punch and the hearts were cut using my die cut machine.
This card can be used for Valentine's Day or an Anniversary depending on what you put on the inside.
Thanks for looking..........Rita
