Off The Edge Design - Running With The Wind



First, sorry about the picture I just can't figure out how to get a really good photo.

Well, on the virus issue seems our numbers are too high so now more restrictions are in place.  Every time I have had a doctors appointment I always think I hope just being in their office I don't get the virus.  I carry a bacterial wipe in a snack bag with extra rubbing alcohol and wipe my hands really well before taking off my mask.  Then wash my hands when I get home.  So far so good.  

I hope everyone is doing well and thank you for all the fun comments on my last design.  We are having a heat wave currently and we don't have air conditioning so lots of fans are moving air around right now.

So I decided to try something new, I partially die cut the little girl on the card stock then you just trim the card stock behind the area that is cut the entire length of the card stock edge and it makes her look like she is running off the page.   The key is getting the presser plate on your die cutting machine to only cut off the part you want.  The plate needs to be in the front when cutting the paper.

Materials:
Impression Obsession -  Girl With Easter Basket & Kite
Martha Stewart - Grass punch
Poppy Stamps - Patient Pup
Rhinestone & stars

Sweet Shop


Front of Sweet Shop


Inside Sweet Shop

Thanks for all the well wishes on the gum tissue surgery.  The key seems to be to keep ahead  of the headaches and pain.  

I decided to create a sweet shop and make the front of the card like you were looking in the window.  I pulled out my old Heartfelt Creations Layered Elegant Swirl die set and couldn't remember how to use the die.  So after finally finding a video I was on my way.  The windows are from the Poppy stamps Madison House set and the top is Impression Obsession Brick House.

For the inside of card  to create the Sweet Shop I used the wheels from the Poppy stamp Rustic Wagon, Grand Flower Box (for the base), then punched a Martha Stewart Cherish punch for the yellow trim.  Next,  I created the candies and cakes and added the Impression Obsession Square House triangle for the top.

Materials:
Heartfelt Creations - Layered Elegant Swirl 
Impression Obsession - Square House, Brick House
Memory Box - Swirled Lollipops, Garden pots, Scalloped Cake Stand & Petite Cake
Poppy Stamps - Rustic Wagon, Madison House & Grand Flower Box

Reach For The Stars


Summer if finally here , hope everyone is well.

Yes, I found  myself making another space themed card.  I found I had some fun shiny paper so decided to try using it on this design.  Not sure what the background paper is called.

I finally made my appointment an had the second part of my gum tissue graft done.  I had  the lower jaw front area done last year and the final tissue replaced for the six teeth area done this week.  Not fun, your jaw feels like someone socked you.  No bruising and really no swelling, just sore.  The Periodontist said most people won't come back after they go through it once, yes I completely understand that feeling.  I have been concerned about having surgery with the virus so high in the United States.  One more thing, since the roof of the mouth doesn't have enough tissue to do it all at once they can only do the surgery in stages if you need the entire lower jaw done.

Materials:
Impression Obsession - Spaceship & Boy with Easter Basket
Memory box - Astro Suit
