Wedding card

Seems like I have been making a lot of wedding cards lately so I figured I would make some up and have them on hand. I used scraps of paper to make the card and used my sizzix heart die to make the man and woman hearts, at the bottom is white ribbon that I braided and added pearls.

Ribbon flower for a shower present

Here is a flower I made to use on a present. It could be made into a pin to wear or also in your hair. I used 1 inch white ribbon, mine has the wire in but when I make the flower again I would take the wire out, would make it easier to use. There are 20 3" ribbons and then the center is made from a little piece I had left over.

A Christmas present for my youngest granddaughter

Here is the finished canvas.

Step 1. I started with a 12 x 12 canvas and added a 12x12 piece of paper and decoupaged the paper on the canvas.

Step 2. I made the flowers from an old flour sack after misting it with 2 shades of pink (pink gumball by Perfect Pearls and Vivid Purple by Memories Mist) and one shade of brown (tumble dry by s.e.i). I let the material dry and then cut out flowers using 2 of my sizzix dies-Tattered Flowers and Flower, build a flower #3.

The material I started with after it has been sprayed. I actually used an old sugar sack I bought at a garage sale but plain muslin would work as well.

Finished flowers along with dies I used:

Step 3. I used two different ribbons, sprayed them with water and wound them around a skewers and once dry took them off. This curls the ribbon and I used it for trenils with the flowers. The butterflies and some of the flowers are made from aluminum foil that I misted and then cut with dies.

How I did the ribbon:

Corn field

Trying to get a good photo of the 5 of these sillys was a hard task. I used one out take and then the final photo. I used brown and green cardstock and then added brown, orange and green mists as well as gesso and added brown wrapping paper. I added white embossing powder over the wet gesso. I made the sunflowers using a die and then the corn fields from a silhouette file and the cream color flowers were made from an old sugar sack and cut with my sizzix. This was for a challenge at Scrap the Boys

An old photo

I am redoing some old photos for my son and this is one from my daughter's wedding. This was also for a challenge at Boston Fanatics as well as the Anything Goes Challenge at Paper Wings Productions. I used just black and white cardstock, cut out the lily pattern with my Silhoutte and used dies for the leaves and little sprigs at the top. The b/w bride and groom was cut out out from a card.
