Like most of you, I've been running short on time and haven't had much time to blog. Therefore, I have a few things I'd like to share today.
The most current one is for today's technique challenge on Splitcoaststampers to use the VanGogh technique in our creation. Well, I'm no artist for sure, but I do love learning new things and wanted to give my hand a try at this technique. I used Stampin' Up's Boatloads of Love, my Copic markers, sponges, liquid applique, and heart punch to create this fun card. I'm thinking my granddaughter would enjoy this for her birthday......or so I hope, anyway.
My next one is in honor of yesterday's featured stamper on Splitcoaststampers known as SmilynStef. Stephanie is the Inspiration Challenge hostess on Saturday and always has such cool inspiration pieces for us to choose from. I knew I wanted to do a bird theme with blues since I was making this card for Kheila Kirwan's mom who is turning 90 on January 4. What a milestone!! The designer paper is Heidi Grace with flocking on the bird wings and the main bird image is a QuikKutz die.
Last is a gift card holder I made using the video tutorial Gina K did last week on StampTV. I LOVE this pop-up gift card holder! Here's the inside:
And the outside using Stampin' Up's Holiday Lounge designer paper.
I wrote this post in a hurry since hubby and I are off to catch a movie and some shopping since I'm off work this week, so if you have questions or want more information, please let me know. I'll be back to surf your blogs and see what you've been up to later!
