I got started early this year on my Valentine’s Day creations–hearts are indeed one of my favorites. So excited to finally share with you!
This batch of hearts are for my friends. I painted pinks and purples onto card stock and cut heart shapes from the dried piece. Then I outlined with glitter glue and wrote a message on the front. I wrote them each a short line on the back.
This next card I made for my not-quite 2-year-old nephew who loves balloons to give to his parents.
The heart balloons on the front are made of construction paper and outlined with glitter glue. The clouds are drawn with white crayon and its resistance to watercolor creates a neat effect.
My heart soars for you all!! Happy Valentine’s Day!
The Holidays are usually stressful for me because no matter how early I start to think about presents for everyone on my list, I always wait to shop till Christmas Eve. Now that the gifts are wrapped, here are the best of my Holiday card creations.
These cards are all made with card stock, acrylic paint and my Holiday favorite- glitter glue!
Thanks for looking–maybe I should start shopping now for next Christmas!
Here’s me enjoying a handmade card I received as a sweet gift today!
Last week I purchased some high-shine and glittery paint to experiment with my Holiday card creation.
This is the first of many more cards I’ll be making for my family and friends.
I outlined the petals and center of the poinsettia flower with glitter and created a gentle mint green border.
Here’s to many more Holiday cards to come!
Last night we celebrated my nephew’s second birthday! My other nephew (birthday baby’s cousin) helped me make a card but we didn’t capture a good picture.
I also tried my hand at making a felt board like I had when I was a child. I
spent hours arranging animals on the board and thought he might enjoy one, too.
The fish I cut out of felt and glued the background piece to a larger cardboard frame. The accompanying song is called Slippery Fish and can be found here: http://bussongs.com/songs/slippery-fish.php
Happy 2nd birthday, A!
