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!


Little Red Wagon ... Two Different Ribbons

Me again!  Here to share a card I made for the Little Red Wagon challenge '2 Different Ribbons'.  You must have at least 2 (or more) different ribbons on your project.  Here is my project for this challenge ...

I can't tell you how happy I am about this card!!!  I have been working and working on layering, and stalking some of my card making heroes like Cherry Nelson and Beatriz Jennings and more.  I think this one came close to what I have been wanting, so I am very pleased with it!  Here are the details ...

  • Card base - Michaels 'Recollections' Value Pack with Envelopes
  • Base patterned paper, K&Company 'Cut 'n' Paste' Stack (two floral images also came from this same sheet!)
  • Bird image - Bumble Button
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers
  • Sparkly ribbon and laces, button - my stash
  • Orange ribbon - 7 Gypsies
  • Green ribbon - Anna Griffin
  • Brown ink - Stampabilities
  • Stickles - Platinum - Ranger Inks
  • Chipboard oval - Crafty Secrets
  • Chipboard frame - Tattered Angels

  • Martha Stewart / EK Success Paper Trimmer
  • Scissors, craft knife, ruler
  • EK Success border punch 'Arch Scallop'

  • Image - I printed 2 copies, trimmed one in it's entirety, and then fussy cut the second leaving only the bird and limb it is sitting on.  Then I bumped the fussy cut image up on foam dots and placed it over the original in the image.
  • Rose bouquet on left side is fussy cut from the K&Company paper sheet from 'Cut 'n' Paste' stack.  After trimming it, I inked the edges then touched them with platinum Stickles.
  • Rose Medallion in lower right corner - I cut the rose from the same K&Co. paper, then placed the chipboard oval where I wanted it and scored around it so the paper would fold easily.  Then I clipped around the edges of the paper and folded it under the chipboard gluing as I went along.  Then I cut a length of lace and glued it underneath the medallion.

And that is it!  I really, truly LOVE this card, and I hope you have enjoyed it, too!  Thanks for visiting!  Blessings, Becky
