I enjoy how watercolor paints move on paper. The liquidity, the organic nature of the outcome, the variety of available color combinations all merge to form a beautiful and relaxing way to create a lovely background for a simple card. No two cards ever come out the same so you can honestly know that the recipient of the card is truly receiving a "one of a kind" piece of art.

There is also something exciting about sitting down to a blank piece of watercolor paper. What will it become? How will the colors merge? Oh the anticipation...


Supplies for this 5" x 5" card "recipe" are:
Base cards: A sheet of White Daisy Cardstock cut into two 5" x 10" each pieces. Card layersWatercolor Paper and White Daisy Cardstock scraps leftover from cutting down the base cards. Watercolor Paints: You can use …

Card: Pinterest Inspiration

Do you ever have those days when you are stuck waiting for the timer to go off on the oven so you pass the time looking at random ideas on Pinterest? That happened to me today while baking a crustless pumpkin pie.

I came across a card on Pinterest and decided to use it for inspiration for my friend's upcoming birthday. I tried to follow the links back to the original card, and the best I can figure out is that my inspiration card is by www.stampstodiefor.com . I certainly want to be sure to give credit to the original designer, even though I modified my design from the one seen on Pinterest.

Normally I give you my "recipe" for my card, but in all honesty, I used assorted supplies I have in my stash, some of which I don't remember where I bought them, so instead let me simply show you what I gathered together …

A blog hop is a friendly circle of artists challenged to design a paper craft using a monthly designated theme or product. Once we create our paper craft using that particular theme/product we then blog post our resulting creations. The next step is to visit each other's blogs so we can see what other’s have designed and created using that same theme/product. Even if you aren't entering a creation in this month's blog hop you are very welcome to join into the "hopping" and be sure to leave comments!
This month we are featuring Vellum! I love using vellum in my paper crafting because it can be used to add elegance and/or texture to a project. As you are seeing in this blog hop, the uses of vel…

Technique: Envelopes, Bows, Boxes

I had a friend over and she was looking around in my craft room a few weeks ago and she stumbled across my American Crafts We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board and asked me to show her what I could do with it. She had never seen one, or seen how it worked, and she thought it was a delightful invention. I use my punch board all the time and I hadn't realized it might be a novelty to some people. So, on the off chance you haven't seen one, I am dedicating this blog posting to some of the fun things this crafty tool can do.

The American Crafts We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board has three main crafting functions: it is used to make envelopes, bows, and boxes. I most often use it to make envelopes, but I also appreciate the bows and boxes functions, too! This punch board also comes with instructions to make envelope liners,…
