Sending Love with Hanging Garden

Hello Friends!

Today's card is clean and simple.  I colored it with pencils and ink with a blender pen, layered it onto a piece of Blueberry Bushel, tied some Blueberry Bushel ribbon around it, and layered onto a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock on a white cardstock base.

Hanging Garden, Watercolor and blender pens, Love and Support, Stampin' Up!

I have to admit I really struggled with this card, and in my opinion doesn't look as good as it did in my mind's eye.  Sometimes I think we try too hard to make every card extraordinary, but the fact is, juts leaving it alone sometimes is the best plan of action.

I did take the cloud stencil from Party Masks to add a little texture to the background.  I think that helped. Anyway, it's definitely going going into my favorites file, but I still think most people are happy to receive a handmade card of any kind, because that's the key...
Handmade..."I made this with my own 2 hands and I sent it to you because you are special". :)

MEASUREMENTS:
WHISPER WHITE THICK CARDSTOCK BASE: 4 1/4" X 11", SCORED AT 5 1/2".

BALMY BLUE LAYER: 5 1/4" x 4".

BLUEBERRY BUSHEL LAYER:  3 1/2" X 4 5/8".

WHISPER WHITE LAYER:  3 3/8" X 4 7/16".

Postcard Pals Envelope Art

Hello Everyone!

Happy Tuesday!  I know, I know...I'm supposed to have  a video tutorial for you today, but you know, it was just one of those things that didn't work out.  I had my project pictured in my head, but when I went to put it together, well it just didn't come together.  Grrrrrr....frustrating!

SO I hope you don't mind that I just did a little Envelope Art today.  I love this super cute Postcard Pals set!  So stinkin' cute!  Who wouldn't want to see this little guy in their mailbox?  It just screams,"I am NOT a bill!"  

Passport Pals, Envelope Art, Mail Art, Stampin' Up

I did color him with Copic markers, since that's what I have.  If you have the Stampin' Blends Use those!  They perfectly coordinate with all the Stampin' Up! colors!

SO that's about all I have for you today.  I'll see if I can't get my project on the right track and get it filmed and out to you Thursday!

SUPPLIES USED:  ARE AVAILABLE NOW IN MY ONLINE STORE, OR BY CLICKING ANY LINK BELOW:
