Assorted Cards

Hello everyone.  Hope everyone has had a super week.  I have a few cads to share this evening.  The first is a cad for my Niece who moved into her 1st dorm at college.  She is attending Hofstar University.  And we are so proud of her.  She has always loved getting mail and asked if I would send the occasional card.  So here is the 1st of many cards she will be getting while away at college.  I used stamps from Catherine Pooler and then just splattered ink all over the card and the envelope to match.... The second card is just a to say Hi to my Aunt and Uncle.  they love getting cards so for this one I used some kitchen sink layering stamps for basket with flowers.  then added some Art Impressions stamps and a touch of water coloring....The third card was actually painted about a week ago and I just layered it up with some black CS and that was it.  This one is for my Secret Sistah in a card group I am part of....  Then the last card is for one of my Dog walking clients who lost his sister yesterday. It's a very easy embossed image in white then just added water and Marvy ink in no particluar order...............

Well that's all I have for this evening.  I do have a birthday card to get made so that will be my next thing to share and I have been playing around with Christmas cards too.

Thanks for popping in to visit and have a great weekend.

Until next time

Keeping busy while Hurricane Harvey takes over Texas......

Hello all from a very very wet Texas.  Hurricane Harvey is taking it's toll on my big state of Texas.  Luckily we live about 200 miles inland from the coast so we are just seeing a lot of rain and occasional high winds.  I am enjoying the cooler temps though :).  I have been trying to stay busy as it pours outside.  Made another water color scene,  will be made into a card, just can not get enough of these.. I also made a card for a stamping /card making friend, it's a parchment card and I really like how it came out.  And my 1st Christmas card of the year, Yay.  It's another parchment card and I am very happy with this one too, it just needs a sentiment to be finished off.  That's it for this evening.  Rains have settled to just a drizzle for now, thankfully.  To all my other Texans I hope this evening finds safe and out of harms way of this horrible storm.....................



Until next time,
Tootles.....

Better late than never........

Well hello all..... It's been a bit since I posted and it's not because I have nothing to share but because work has been good.  So now on to my latest cards. 
 This birthday card was for a dear sweet man who is the hubby of a dear friend, and as you can tell he loves to bowl, LOL.....

 This card was for one of my hub's friend's birthday.  I used my old stamp scape stamps on this one and marvy ink.....


 This framed piece was a gift for my Hub's Aunt for her birthday and the card below was her birthday card.... both water colored using Art Impression stamps....

And this pretty parchment  card is for my neighbor and friend, whose dad passed away on Saturday from a long battle with cancer.  I used a Groovi plate from Clarity Stamps and distress markers to color from the back.   
Well that it for now.  I do have 2 more Parchment cards in the works but not done yet, hopefully soon.
Thanks for popping in and looking.  Feel free to leave feedback, i read every comment y'all leave me.....  :)

Until next time

Water Color Cards

Good Morning all.  Hope everyone is surviving the summer heat and rains.  We have been some hot hot weather, over 100 daily and a couple freak storms..but we are good so far!  I made a few more water color pics and made them all into cards yesterday.  All in all I ma happy with.  Still trying to get an handle on how much water to have on the brush but it's coming along.  I used mostly Art Impression stamps, my favs, and the cad with the boot I used a stamp from Rubber Stamp Tapestry, love their peg stamps too. Will show those off soon..... here are the cards I ended up with.  Hope you like them and thanks so much for popping by.

Artsy Birthday Card

Hello there.... How is everyone?  It's been really hot here in my neck of the world....but I love warm weather luckily, LOL.  I made a fun birthday card for my niece who will 17 next week.  She is quiet a good artist, she draws so well, it amazes me.  So I made her this card.  Used water color markers scribbled on craft mat and sprayed with water then used a paint brush to tap bits of color all over the card then added the jar with brushes and the sentiment, both with foam tape.  Oh and I added glossy accents to the jar and a bit of silver paint pen to the metal rim... And then I made a booboo. I dropped the ink pad on the bottom left corner of the card and almost screamed.  But I decided to ink up the edges and see if that made it look any better, well not great but Hubby says it looks like it was meant to be there.  And being I need this in the mail today it will stay as it is, even if I a think it's not right.  No time for a do over this time..... So here is the card, tell me what ya think about the ink booboo... Yay or Nay?


Until Next Time

2 cards done today

Hi all.  I found myself with some time today so you know I had to get some cards made.  So for today's cards I made a frame for one of the scenery cards I did a while back.  I just wet the paper and added Tombow marker ink with a paint brush and let it do it's own thing. Then cut a circle in the middle with a die and cut to fit the scenery, I love it.  Then just added the Happy Birthday sentiment.  This going to a male friend who loves being at the lake..... The next card is for an online friend who is just a super lady and I wanted to let her know it.... I used Art Impression stamps, water colored with Tombow markers and cut the scene out with a circle stitched die.  Then cut two larger circles and attached them to card .  Here's hoping she likes it.  I even put her name on the wooden post.  I am pretty happy with both cards.  Now to clean up the mess and get ready to my Mama out to dinner in a bit.........  Thanks for popping by.

Until Next Time,
Tootles
