OWH-Love cards.

The first card was inspired by Yolanda on OWH. I loved how she threaded the ribbon. The heart was stamped on printed paper, cut out and then I covered completly with a layer of Diamond Glaze. I popped it up for dimension.

The next card I hand cut the heart using the heart on the third card as a guide. The third card is from one of the insert pages put in Somerset magazines. I have had that page of hearts for a long time also.

All three of these cards were made with background paper that I considered leftover from previous years.

OWH-Love-I miss you

The sentiment on the first card is from Create With TLC. The paper has fancy silver threads in it. I put it through an embossing folder. My version of a masculine card. The second card has an Inkadinkadoo stamped image. I used a pink glossy jelly roll pen on the cats flowers after I colored them with Copics. I put a dab of crystal lacquer in the middle. The miss you stamp is a 1992 SU stamp I picked up at St. Vincent DePaul on the cheap. It is one of my favorites because of it's small size.

Love-A valentine for Operation Wrte Home

Trying to make a valentine suitable for a guy. Not so sure it worked. At least it isn't super feminine. I think it will work nicely for a teenage girl. I am going to link this card to Our Daily Bread Designs. They are providing shipping for an  OWH box for each 25 cards linked. The November challenge is for love and valentines.

You know how sometimes you fall in love with paper and then don't know what to do with it when you get it home? Such was the case with these peacock papers in the DCWV Royal Garden small pad. I turned the 3 sheets of the same design into love cards for OWH. I matted the papers with Bazzill Lime Crush. The large heart is from the peacock line of papers. The smaller heart was made with some glossy cardstock I colored with alcohol inks. The words were stamped with black Stazon

OWH- midweek showdown- any occasion

The image on this card is Moonlit Fairy by Rubber Stampede. I stamped it on the paper and then stamped again on yellow paper for the moon. I cut out the moon and lined it up in the correct place. The throwdown asked for a card with no sentiment. The top card works but I prefer the bottom card.

Birthday card

I made this card for my granddaughter Charmaine. I used Bo Bunny papers. I stamped the bird on the blue, painted parts with Twinkling H2Os and cut it out. I added Swarovski crystal bling to the tail. I found this image a little puzzling as the head is facing in a strange direction when you look at the tail. I just kind of guessed at how to arrange it on the card. This will go in the mail Monday. She will be 27 years old in a few days. I miss her and her kids. I wish she still lived in Eugene.

Cuppa time

This cup image is called " Teacups Dancing " by Stamp In The Hand. The stamp is one I picked up at St. Vincent DePaul for $3.60. I have been looking at if for months. It was calling to me so I gave in. It was 1 of 2 stamps that I bought and I hate to say it, I was weak.  I broke my spending freeze that I put in place in September. I have been good though. I have spent only about $7 on craft stuff in the last 2 months except for basic supplies. I colored some of the images but I liked this monochromatic look the best. I made 4 of these cards, 3 of which will go to OWH. The other one I will put in my personal stash
