I had this stamped wreath leftover from an episode of OWHtv a while back (HERE)….so I finally used it from my pile of ready-to-roll images that’s been staring at me! The papers I chose are simple cardstock – using that stuff up too! The image is stamped in two shades of green, the pinecones are colored with pearl paints, and the red berries are bling that’s been colored with R89 Copic marker.
The big yummy silk bow and multiple layers of dimensional are also okay because this is going to be a hand-delivered card….love when I can get crazy with dimension! Wheeee!
It’s finally here….the day I completed and uploaded my footage from the Hero Arts tour! Wheeeeeeeee! And of course I combined it with a tutorial on my new favvvvorite Lil Bear….is this not the CUTEST lil image? Well maybe I’m just a bit biased, eh?
The acetate card was a lot of fun….the odd swirls of light color in the photo above are reflections in the acetate on the photo…ya gotta see the video to get the full effect!
This is one of the best sentiments ever for a kid to get on a card from their mom or dad, don’t you think?
And a close up of our lil bear friends….
Hope you enjoyed this….I’ll be creating videos for the other critters soon too!
Have you noticed that I like these Make It Crafty elves? *grin*
I want a hat like his – so much fun! Giant long ends on em, giant bells….wouldn’t that be a blast to walk around with? Heehee! And I tried to cheer up his grumpy little self by throwing a party with ribbon and stars – though he doesn’t seem like that’s helping his attitude!

I’m excited to report that TOMORROW you finally get to see all that Hero Arts footage!!! YEAH!!! The videos are rendering right now and I’m arguing with YouTube about uploading them – LOL. Poor YouTube doesn’t like that I had SO much footage, methinks! See you manana!!
Hey there peeps! Is it Friday yet? I am soooo ready for a weekend to catch up on the week that’s blasting past me! I’m paddling fast under the water, though, and checking off a few things…but by the time I get to one, another is bubblin’ up!
Today’s card is a doubleduty card….agh! Yep, I’m CHEATING! It’s the card for today’s OWHtv, and it’s just going to have to be my blog card too. I know that I’m the dingdong who’s set my own ‘rules’ for daily posting….but I still somehow feel like I ought to keep up with it now that I’ve been on a roll so many years! Anyway – our friends at Doodle Pantry created 2 cute sets of digistamps, specifically with OWH in mind – and they’re making a nice donation for each bundle sold! And to top that off, they’ve already blasted past the goal they’d set….so let’s see if we can DOUBLE it! Post on your own blog or Fb about it (link to THIS page), and let’s see if we can do it!
You can watch OWHtv at noon to get more deets on the card…..but it’s all Doodle Pantry – papers, image, sentiment. I did the circles and the moon with punches. And that’s about it!
Reminder – we’re nearing the deadline for AnyPostalWorker cards, so if you were planning on getting one done, get ‘er in the mail tomorrow at the latest. I can’t wait to take a basket of joy in to them and see their reaction!!
Ciara is a little belated in sending a thank you card to somebody who took care of her for a couple days….but she finally told me what she wanted on her card!
She liked my background that I’d played around recently HERE – this one is way too thick for a mailed card, but with the strips mounted on the Precious this time, it’s a pretty cool effect for a hand-delivered card! It had to endure the “Maya” test; a sweet toddler really liked it and gave the adhesive a good pull! LOL. Yep, the ATG wasn’t really up to a toddler’s tugging, but it seemed to press back together a little at least.

And a little news….I already have another class set up! Woohoo! The store owner at Impress asked if I could come up with something quick for Christmas with daubers….and you know me, I can’t resist a challenge. So December 7th I’ll be teaching folks how to make some cute cards. Sign up if you’re a local, this will be a blast! And if you ever wonder what I’m teaching, either online or in person, just check my Classes page.
