SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER – CAT IN SCENIC WINDOW

Well, here we are already in September! I’ve chosen Cat in Scenic Window, 0772-U to share with you today. The stamp was stamped on 120-weight watercolor paper and colored by my friend, Judi Lunday, who is a watercolor artist. This is one of the drawings that my mother did around 1990. I have the same image (0776-U) available in my catalog without the scene showing in the window. It is fun to have my friend color a stamped image and for me to do the framing of it onto a card. The Aloe Vera Plant (0775-D) is available separately as a stamp and measures 1″ tall. The card base is Stampin’ Up’s Choc Chip and the layer is a dark tan.

MAY NEWSLETTER

Wow! Mother’s Day seems to have come upon me so fast! It has been a fun few weeks making Mother’s Day Greeting Cards for my display rack at the local Hardware store. Now, I am busy making Graduation cards. The card I’m showing today features one of my favorite drawings done by my Mother when she was 89 years old. It is Kitten on Creel, Lg. 0774-L. The background has 4 fishing flies. Listing from top left clockwise, they are Bivisible (dry fly), 0423B; King’s River, 0424A; Spinner, 0751C; Caddis, 0750-C. Colored pencils were used to color all images. The Kitten on Creel was cut out and mounted with dimensionals on a black oval. The card is ivory cardstock, layered with black and ivory cardstock.
