I am feeling pretty excited right now. I just mailed my last card order and it's only December 14. This means I will have time to make some cards that I can send out from my family. I learned something about myself yesterday. I was working on a card order and even though I have created hundreds of cards I felt nervous as I worked. I wasn't nervous when Carla asked me to bring cards I had already made to her Art Gallery and I'm not nervous when I create samples for my classes, but I was a wreck yesterday. I am not usually a perfectionist, but when it comes to my paper crafts I want everything to look good.
I took pictures of some of my favorite creations and I have a few to share with you today.
I sponge painted some white tag with acrylic paints and created my own patterned paper. The tree was stamped with a Hero Arts "Tree Trunk" wooden stamp. I used Distress Ink to paint the tree. The birds and music notes are brads from Eyelet Outlet.
I found the small doilies that I use on my cards in the baking section at Michaels. The tea cups were stamped with a clear stamp from the Hero Arts "What's Perking?" clear stamp set. I fixed the tea bag string after I saw this photograph.
I love my wooden tea bag stamp from the Lockhart Stamp Company. Love the SEI Homestead papers that I used on this card too.
Going to decorate our Christmas tree now. Will be back tomorrow!
Have a great day! Have a great night too!
