Cardinals


I won this adorable Cardinals image at Creative With Monika, you can purchase it at her new JCLA Etsy shop, along with many other adorable images, many with Indonesian touch.
 
I used my Copic markers to color the Cardinals, highlighted them with blue inks using my Rangers blending tool and framed them with a Tim Holtz  wood grain embossing folder with an opening  cut with an Eyelet die cut.  I can picture these making a nice Christmas card too!

Breast Cancer Teddy Bear





                                   



This darling teddy bear for breast cancer awareness is part of a digital set is by imagethat...digis by kris, it is free for the month of October with proof that you have donated funds (a minimum of $5.00) to your favorite cancer charity or organization.  I die cut a doily and butterfly, then embossed the butterfly about 5 times with clear embossing powder and then die cut two gray circles to give it the rigidity to hold my Easel Card open.  I am waiting for a new Chemo buddy so it will go to them if appropriate or a special request chemo patient.

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend!

Breast Cancer Awareness

Supplies: Paper Studio Embossing Folder, Memory
Box Corner Butterfly Die Cut, Amuse Fight Like
a Girl Stamp Set.

October is breast cancer awareness month so I wanted to make a card
for this important case.  We all have been touched in some way by
cancer.  I've had friends and relatives go through breast cancer and
I am a card angel for Chemo Angels.  For crafters, sending cards
 to support those you know going through cancer or to an organization
is one   way to make a difference and add cheer to a difficult day.

File Folder Cards



 
I got an envelope maker board and have made a couple of  file folder
cards with it after watching a few videos.  The top card was for a
friends who moved into a new apartment. 
I used some pattern paper from MME and just a
simple stamp from Katie & Co that has been in my collection for
eons.  The second card is for my brothers birthday, he is an avid
photographer,  I was inspired by a pin from this site:polkadotsandpaper.net .  
 
Have a wonderful weekend!
