February Card

I made this friendship card  using the Stampendous Jumbo Hollyhocks stamp.
I used a cream card base and a simple mat  . I cut a second mat using a die and inked the edges.
I stamped the image on cream card stock  using watermark ink and clear embossing powder .
I sponged on some Tim Holtz distress inks to add color then cut it using a Spellbinder die. I added some Stampendous aged teal embossing enamel around the border of the stamped image and adhered it to the card using foam tape.

Paper shoe

I just finished  this shoe last night .
 I used 110lb cardstock,  covered with paper then cut and scored the pieces.  To make the flower I cut  a 3/4" strip of paper and scored every 1/4 inch using my scor- pal.  I layered the paper flower with lace and used ribbon to finish the edges of the shoe.

I searched online for " free paper shoe patterns" and found various styles. The one I used is by Ellen Hutson .

Valentine Cards

I am finally back in my craft room after what seems like a very long time. Sometimes you can't help it. Life happens...

My first project was a Valentine's day card for my hubby.

I used the Graphic 45 French Country collection. I added one of the small  chipboard pieces from the collection , a small key and some brads to finish it off. The large sentiment was cut from DCWV paper I had in my stash and matted on black cardstock. The inside was also decorated with some of the papers.
