Thanks for visiting!

Welcome! This is the place where I share my artsy and crafty projects. I am an evolving artist these days ... finding myself enjoying less of the cards and mini albums that I have made for years, and turning to art journaling and more artistic endeavors. I have always enjoyed some craft or other, and some of my earliest memories of my mother helping me make paper dolls and other crafts. I am now in my 60's and finding myself more passionately enjoying creating beautiful things and learning new skills and techniques and products.

While you are here I hope you will find inspiration and ideas for making your own projects, however any images or projects you find here are my personal property and should not be used for your own monetary gain, or for contests or challenges. Thank You!


CPS # 78 - Delightful Cherries!

Hi there! I've had a busy time this past week, so haven't made many cards, but I'm back at it again now, just in time for the new CPS #78 sketch. My take on this sketch was bright and colorful with primary colors!
I used a soft, buttery yellow Bazzill cardstock for the base, then the next two layers of paper are from a Paper-Azzi kit I bought from HSN a while back. The bottom paper is green with red cherries sprinkled over it. The top paper is pretty stripes in yellow, green, blue, red and white.

For the bottom, I cut some of the cherry bunches out of the base paper, and coated them with red microfine glitter from Art Accentz. A strip of vintage red ric-rack and a pretty ribbon of yellow, green and white finished the bottom section of the card.

I then used the Heidi Swapp 'delight' stamp on some of the green paper (back side of the cherry paper) and heat embossesd it with Ranger Embossing Powder in red. I trimmed around the word, attached it to more of the yellow cardstock, trimmed around it and attached it to the card. On top I added a few buttons in yellow, white and green.
This was a fun sketch to work from, and a fun card to make. Thanks for looking! Becky
