Just For You Card




Here's a card I made using a couple techniques. First I swiped a few colors of alcohol inks and let the paper dry. After that I embossed it with a Tim Holtz folder. I then swiped some black ink over the top to enhance what was embossed. I added a little tag to enhance the fact that this is a special card. I'm sending it as a birthday card.

Untitled card





Here's a card I made using materials from the 5th Avenue collection by Melissa Frances. I've had this for quite a while and made a set of cards in class but there was so much extra I have enough to make a ton of cards. I used the templates that we had in class so it is easy peasy to throw a card together.

Sagittarius card




Here's a card I made for a man and his son both celebrating their birthdays. The stamps are from See Dee's. I did a bit of coloring with water based markers and then added just a little bling inside each circle, didn't want to get carried away with the bling for the guys.

Ruby Slippers Card





Jennifer McGuire gave me some inspiration to get my alcohol inks out and play a bit. I grabbed colors at random and made some backgrounds that I'll make into cards. Here's the first card I made. I used a Stampendous! stamp and then added a bit of extra color with some Sakura gel pens. I'm sending this as a birthday card.
