Love is in the air

I needed a wedding card for a girl at church.  Don’t really know the colors for the wedding so I used colors that I like.   All the cardstock used for this card came from Magnolia Dreams cardstock pack.  The base for this card is Solar White Thin Columns.  I wanted the columns to […]

Just Because

Hello all.  I wanted to go with a bunch of layers, so this is where I went.  The main image, leaf stamped design and the dots are all stamped on Cryogen White.  I cannot seem to do a card without cryogen.

Making wood planks

I was looking for a different look for Father’s Day.  My sister-in-law recently taught me how to make the wood planks.

I used the Brown bag cardstock for the base of the card and for the planks.  I cut a piece of the Brown Bag cardstock to 3 3/4 x 4 inches.  I […]

Cryogen for Water Color Paper

My sister-in-law taught me a really simple new technique.  You use a plastic baggie, markers (not permanent) ,water color cardstock and a water color pen .  For this technique I used cryogen for my water color cardstock.  I was very impressed because it was nearly flat after adding water to it.  Really amazing because […]
