Walking Home Paper Art Card

Thank you for coming by to visit my blog and a big thanks to you if you have the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower. I want to say I really appreciate all the comments on my last post.  Please let me know you stopped by, so I can be sure and return the favor.

I wanted to create a holiday design that had the feel of paper art.  I used mounting tape behind all the clouds and little girl. I glued the stones to create a path and used the tiny bow for the scarf on the dog and girl then coated then with Sakura Crystal Lacquer so they had a shine.  My snow drifts don't show up very well.   The clouds are glued in layers and I used the reverse die cut method with a blue cards stock backing.

PS.  Back from a lovey trip to Germany and Italy.  Gosh it was a once in a life time vacation.

Materials:
Memory Box - Puffy Clouds & Tiny Bow
Poppy Stamps - Patient Pup
Impression Obsession - Farm Girl & Mountain Landscape Layers

Halloween Platform Card Design

Card Design From Front

This is how to looks once you fold it down to mail it off.

This new cottage platform die from Poppy Stamps has all sorts of fun uses.  I watched a video by Olga  Direktorenko for her Wishing Well card design to get the idea of how to use the die.

This die is really easy to use and you can glue different pieces along the side, back and front and still be able to close the design down for mailing.   After die cutting the pieces just glue each Cottage Side Gates on each side of the platform and then decorate.

Materials:
Poppy Stamps - Cottage Platform, Cottage Side Gates, Gourds and Pumpkins & Jumbled Boo

Memory Box - Small Alder Tree, Old Haunted House, Corner Cobwebs, Ghost Trio, Witch Kit, Tiny Bubbles, Grim Cauldron, Scary Spiders & Ghostly Ghosts.

There are lots of tutorials on using glitter, double sided adhesive and copics.  Here is one 
from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Super fun to do, using the double sided adhesive is a little challenging but just place the peeled off paper over part of the sticky paper when applying the flower stickers.

I cut a piece of the double sided adhesive tape, placed it on card stock the same size and the carefully applied the flower stickers.  Next I covered the entire area with silk micro fine glitter (you really need micro glitter to be able to color) and then colored the stickers using the copics.  It really makes a pretty glittery design when finished.

Elizabeth Crafts Flower Stickers
Elizabeth Craft 2 1/2" double sided adhesive tape

Really quick and easy probably less than ten minutes to make.  I used a left over scallop frame and added a little mounting tape behind it. Then added the black Palace Oval Frame and inserted the Leafy Sprig and Posies.  For a little bling I added the four pink rhinestones.

Garden Bird House

No card today but I just wanted to post this fun picture of a bird nest.  I purchased three of these wooden birdhouses years ago and never has a bird used them. I finally give up on even checking them when I walked by the area.  Last weekend I noticed a bunch of nesting materials in one of the the boxes.  The birds are long gone so I slid open the latch and look at all the nesting materials those birds stuffed inside that box.  It is even coming out of the bottom of the box.  Not sure what type of birds made the nest.
