Hello and Welcome to my blog.
I'm a Mom, Daughter, Sister and friend and a Cat Keeper and an avid card maker and paper artist. I love the outside, gardening, visiting my friends and family and enjoy many other activities. My blog is about cards and so much more. I hope you enjoy visiting with me here.
I have been doing some other kinds of Christmas cards than stamped or digital images and you know me, I like to do different things, I think it keeps me fresh. So I am going to share this one with you today. I love the colors of this one, it looks So rich. If I don't post before Thanksgiving, I want to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving, I have so many things to be thankful for and I count all of you as one of my blessings, Jane
I'm back to show you a shaker card. Just in time for our first snow. It is exciting outside, very pretty now ~ I have to wonder how long I will be liken that!!
I took a photo from the side so I hope you will be able to see the "dome" of the shaker filled with beads. I can't believe it has been a year since I made these kinds of Cards. I had to re-figure out the cutting templates I used. Wishing you all a wonderful day, from the snowy Midwest! Jane
There is the complete Treat Jar set. I love the colors, it turned out very well and so happy with it all. I want to share with you all today some of the features of the card. first off and I am sure you noticed, it's an easel card, they are very popular right now and I see why! Notice on the card front the Snowman - it that correct? Or should I be saying or writing snowperson, Umm. Anyways, it is a digital image that I colored him/her with my COPIC markers and the added some flower soft (polar white) to the snow drifts. The snowflakes are both paper punched with the Martha Stewart paper punch and also are foamies too and I placed gems on the top of those in both pink and silver. Did you notice how 'POPPED' the main image is? Oh, you will be surprised! The image or snowman is raised out front the card front by... drum roll, a ribbon spool and I saw it at my blogger friend and former design team member Carolyn's blog and I loved how it looked but I decided to go one step further and left some of the ribbon on the spool and used that and other ribbon to make one bigger size bow and topped it off with a stick pen and snowflake!!
As with a digi, you can change the size of it on your computer, I happen to dump the image into a word document file and did the adjustments there and printed it out on card stock, I had to make a smaller image for the jar top. I forgot to mention up above that this little guy/gal has heart gems for the hands. I picked up a pink heart gem pack and it had three sizes, I used the smallest of the snowman's buttons, the second size for the snowman's hands on the jar top and the largest size for the snowman's hands on the card. I loved that they came that way, it worked out perfectly for what I was doing on this project. So, all you need to do is place treats inside this jar; Peppermints, Herseys's Kisses, whatever your favorite is... I personally love them all~~ Jane
If you like this Santa, I am offering you him as a free Digi, just pull Santa from off this blog. I just ask that you be a follower and leave a comment. I found him on a free domain site for public use so you will not be infringing on any artists when you use him or their Angel policies or copy rights. I would love to see your card if you are so inclined to post under there a link to your blog. If I see alot of you are interested, I will go out and find another to share with all of you. I hope he prints out well for you, I am not sure what size he will look best at. Thanks, Jane
Oops, I guess Thanksgiving is first but I have already made those cards. How do you like this one? I do have to say I like it. Very much like that last card I posted on my blog!! Hope all is well with my Blog friends. Blessings, Jane
