Need something made for that special someone??

Image
Today I'm sharing some items I made special order.
Below is a 11x14 canvas.  Acrylic Painting.


   Below is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 oversized card.  For a special young man that wanted to honor his Mother that has passed. He wanted to display it on the mantel so I made it extra sturdy.



Below is a fun birthday card for a young lady's dad.  He's a chef.  I think he's adorable!

If you have something special in mind for your loved one-email me at

Mother's Day with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Image
Really Reasonable Ribbon has an inspiration photo for their challenge. I was immediately drawn to the vibrant color of the flowers. I had this beautiful purple ribbon from RRR to use!
The background is a gelli plate creation of mine.  As you know-I'm addicted and make multiples every time I get my gelli plate out! I always use DecoArt acrylic paint.  There are so many shades to choose from!  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Flowers.  They have the best mulberry flowers!
The hummingbird is from Doodle Pantry.  I love how it turned out!



Mojo Monday /Mother's Day

Image
In order to complete all the Mother's Day cards that were ordered, I like to use sketches.   There are none better than Mojo Monday  396!
Here's my take on this week's sketch. I used Kaiser Craft designer paper, Wild orchid flowers and pearls.

 I'll have more to share....I had orders for 35 Mother's Day cards!  I've been busy!!


May Challenge with Blue Fern Studio

Image
Wedding Cards are so fun to make! You can doll them up. Add flowers, bows, ribbons, hearts-and even Blue Fern Studio Chipboard!
I followed the May Sketch at Blue Fern Studio and created this gorgeous card!
In case you can't tell-The Big Day is a chipboard piece from Blue Fern Studio. I covered it with gesso, painted it with a maroon acrylic paint and then coated it with DecoArt Metallic Wax in gold. Just love how it turned out.
 I added flowers from Wild orchid flowers along with rosettes, heart pearl rope. The tiny banner was created with a Stampin up punch and stamp set.

I love using DecoArt products with other products. I used their gesso, acrylic paint and metallic wax product. You can purchase DecoArt HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!
