Mixed Media and some cards

I am obsessed lately with mixed media, really having some fun creating some unique pieces.  I tried my first mixed media recently and, while I'm not finished with it yet, I really like it.  Also, my passion is still cardmaking, etc. and creating one of kind mini albums and boxes.

Easter Greetings

Just a little Easter greetings card this morning.  As I mentioned before, I love digital images.  I used a digital image from Iramalija's etsy shop and creme cardstock (which I put the base through en embossing folder) and tied up with some Stampin Up ribbon and finished with a pretty prima flower.

Happy Anniversary

I wanted to make a vintage look anniversary card for my Mom and Step-Dad.  My Mom loves my cards and I know she appreciates them.  I used some digital images from Iralamija.  I am obsessed with digital images lately, they are so versatile.  Love mixing the stamped with vintage also.   The ribbon is from Martha Stewart and the button is from Recollections.

Keepsake Boxes

I love creating items that have that vintage feel.  Below are two boxes that I made for two people I love and care about alot.  Inside, some perfume, a little love.  I love using digital images and Prima flowers whenever I can.

A mini album

I wanted to give my daughter Megan a sweet little mini album for her beautiful new daughter Avery.  I'm a very proud Grandma.  Avery is a sweet little baby girl; she is truly a gift from God.  

I used a Prima Flower, antique pink leaves.  I used Stampin Up chocolate chip ink for the saying, from Stampin Up - Curvy Sayings.  The paper is from DCWV.  I love creating these kinds of mini albums.  They are small enough to create for a special occasion or event.  I love creating them and giving them away.

Three Little words....

Really felt like making a new card this morning.  I love butterflies and loved the soft romantic look of this paper from DCWV.  The stamp is from StampinUp-Three Little Words.  Ink is old olive.

A keepsake box

Hi all,

I wanted to make a special box for my daughter for this Mother's Day.  She is expecting a little girl and I wanted to make her something that she could keep small treasures in (i.e., baby bracelet, first lock of hair, etc.).  I started out with a paper mache box and painted it with acrylic paint.  Used a vintage image from The Graphics Fairy.  Trim was lace purchased at JoAnn and Prima.  Findings were from recollections.  

I used modge podge on the colored side of the image (printed from a color laser) and placed it on the painted box, waited for it to dry and then moistened the paper to reveal the image.  I stamped Treasures on the side (Tim Holtz distress inks), gave the butterfly the little girl is holding a little dab of stickles and sealed it with modge podge. Easy.
