We are having a snow weekend here in the white Pacific Northwest. Right now we have about 10" with snow still falling, but other places have up to 2 feet or more. So this is the time to just stay inside and not worry about getting in the car to go shopping. Snow pictures can be seen on my Facebook page. It's been longer than I would like to post some new project pictures so here we go.
The bottom photo shows a cute little box purse made with the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. The little bow in from is also made w/ the punch board. There are videos on youtube to show you how to do these. For the extra little tab on the front I used a small embossing folder to give it some texture.
A couple of friends came over to make cards together and these are the projects I selected to make with them. The one on the left has a Happy Birthday embossed background lightly touched with turquoise ink. A flower was punched out of white using the SU Blossom punch and then stamped with a text stamp. On each petal and in the middle I punched a small hole and then threaded ribbon all around the flower. On top is a die cut of a turquoise flower and a brad added to hold it all together. A loop of the same ribbon was placed under the flower and the whole thing adhered to the card. The ribbon on the flower idea is from Pinterest.
The middle one is a masking technique. Using painter's tape or sticky notes, mask off the card leaving a strip down the middle. Use blue ink of your choice, ink down from the top of the mask. Using green of your choice, ink up from the bottom. Remove masks and then stamp image in black letting some go off the unmasked area. Stamp sentiment at bottom.
The third one is pink card stock embossed w/ hearts. A label shape darker pink card stock is placed toward the bottom w/ a strip of lighter pink embossed card stock on top. Three hearts are die cut and place on to embellish.
I hope you will try some of these ideas and give them your own twist. If you are in the area, our stamp group will be meeting on Tues., Feb. 18 at 7:00 p.m. in the Wasco County Library meeting room in The Dalles, OR. I will be bringing the demo on 2 or 3 projects. Just let me know and I'll give you a list of what to bring to join in the fun. Hope to see you there. If not, try some of these on your own.
God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding.
He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,' and to the rain shower, 'Be a mighty downpour.'
We are seeing God's snow fall on the earth and it is beautiful. The seasons in the northwest truly show the power, grandeur and creativity of God. Enjoy your day whatever kind of weather.
Blessings to you!
