Assembly line Christmas Cards with digital images

 
Put together Christmas cards quickly.
I started with my digital images from Altered Pages. After printing and trimming them, I made mats to fit and card bases. Stacked them up-ready to produce!!
I got our the Christmas embellishments I might want to use.
 Have two favorite background stamps to jazz the plain cardstock up.  Then I got started!
 Below are just two examples of the beautiful cards that came out of my day of card making. There's no way I could post them all!
 These two images came from the collage sheet "Blue Christmas" I just love the vintage feel of them.

Entering Simon Says Christmas/Holiday Challenge.

I hope this will help you during this busy time to be able to get some cards done without stressing too bad!!  People secretly love receiving a handmade card.  I love having the time this year to do them.

Take the time to share Christ in the simple things you do for people this Christmas season.
God was thinking of us when he sent his one and only child to be born in this sinful world and then be crucified for OUR SINS. If you've never accepted Christ as your Savior-do it today!!  Celebrate his birth in true Child of God fashion this year!

Love in Christ,

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

DecoArt Stencils-Wall Art

I wanted to create  a nice design on my bathroom wall. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint. Several stencils were used: First I taped off 7x7 squares leaving an inch between them. I painted them White Wash White. It took a couple of coats to cover up the lavender on the wall.  The I started layering using Botanical stencil and Antique Green. I used all 3 designs and just moved the stencil around on each square.  To get a different shade, I added some of the White Wash White to do the 2nd leaf. The third one I used yellow. The flower is from the Garden collection and is Reusable -stick on stencil. I did some of the flowers in Black Plum and some in Yellow. The bird is from the Bee's and Birds stencil. I did two coats of Black Plumb. I ended up sealing it with a coat of Satin Varnish.

 I hope you'll be inspired to paint on your walls!!
