Calming ☕️ Day 1

Welcome!

I really don’t know where I’m going with this series. I’m stumped 🤔. I had a few ideas from creating monogrammed cards to travel cards. I just couldn’t put anything together tonight, so I quick photographed this card. I made it over the weekend for the Eau Claire Local Store. Hopefully I will get some inspiration!!

Until tomorrow…

Happy Anniversary 🎉 Day 1

Welcome!

I’m starting a Happy Anniversary series this week. I had to begin with an origami dress. If you’ve been following me, you know the origami dress is one of the first cards I ever made and sold on Etsy. I’ve come a long way since that first card, but origami will always be my favorite ❤️

The lighting is a little off on this card. I got wrapped up in watching the finale of American Idol! By the time it was over and I made my card, it was already dusk. It’s ok! I think it still turned out pretty cool.

Until tomorrow (and hopefully better lighting)…

Rugged 🤠 Day 6

Welcome!

For those of you that do not know me, I started my crafting journey by making origami dresses and shirts to be the focal points of my handcrafted cards. I found origami was a great way to focus my thoughts on one task, which helped reduce my anxiety to manageable levels. I remember getting a MRI and going over and over in my head the process of folding an origami dress.

Happy Saturday to you and yours!

Until tomorrow…

Rugged 🤠 Day 4

Welcome!

Today’s card was inspired by Stamping Jill’s YouTube Channel. It’s a diagonal fold card, which is a new style for me. The base was not too hard, but matching up the designer paper was quite the challenge for me. For whatever reason, I couldn’t get it to work, so my husband did it for me 😊

I hope you are having a great day! It’s almost Friday!

Until tomorrow…

Paper Folding 📝 Day 7

Welcome!

I must admit, I love this card the most of my Paper Folding series. It is a true origami dove and it only took me three tries to get it right 😊

I’m glad I am home and safe; It is blizzard conditions outside. For all of my North friends, I pray you are extra safe today.

Until tomorrow…

Paper Folding 📝 Day 6

Welcome!

Today’s card didn’t start out as a baby card, but a dog card! Oh my goodness, but I just could not figure out how to fold it. So, back to YouTube for a different idea. I found a baby clothes tutorial, which still took a few tries to make, but I finally figured it out.

Next, I decided to use green, glittery embossing powder to jazz up the word, Happy. Nope, it wasn’t embossing powder. It was straight up glitter! I need to do a better job reading the labels.

Finally, I was able to complete the card and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!

Until tomorrow…

Paper Folding 📝 Day 2

Welcome!

Today I would like to share with you a new technique I tried in card making. I’ve combined paper folding with inking.

I initially stamped my image and used color pencils to color her in, but the white background looked too white and severe.

I wanted to soften it up, so I decided to use my distress oxides and a simple cotton ball as my blending tool. I absolutely love how it turned out! I completed my card with extra interest by creating a 3D skirt.

I plan on sharing another example with you later this week!

Until tomorrow…
