3 poinsettias

I haven't been feeling very creative lately, as I have had a bad cold that morphed into a sinus infection. This isn't perfect ( I'm not showing anyone the back lol) but I was pleased in general with the overall effect, and that my muse has decided to return and play. This polymer clay necklace is done in Christi Friesen style. I chose not to seal the poinsettias to maintain the more organic look.

This shows the flowers in a little more detail. I used Premo polymer clay. The swarovski off white pearls get this lovely golden colour when baked in the clay.

Who we are

This card uses an image from the Stampsmith. It is stamped on glossy cardstock, coloured with waterbased markers used as paint. All the mounting layers and the edge of the image are distressed with vintage photo distress ink. The phrase is computer generated. I wish it wasn't so true for so many.

Supplies used- Stampsmith stamp, distress inks, various papers and cardstocks

Birthday cards

Sometimes the simpler cards can be quite effective. These cards use Spellbinders dies for their design elements. I used the renaissance heart border, as well as the ovals and scalloped ovals. The edges are accented with teal chalk ink and distress inks. The monogram letters were cut on my KNK digital cutter, using a file from Ginny's Happy Cuts, available at Paperthreads. The embossed line edge on the D card was done using the Scor-it.
