Yesterday was a nice rainy day which made a great day to recover from Halloween and a day to create.
I have gotten so many new things in this past month but have not had the time of desire to play with them. So yesterday was that day.
I have become a great admirer of Melissa Phillips at Lilybean's Paperie and Sherry Wright at Seasons of Change that I just had to purchase some of the products they use like Melissa Frances products and Cavallini Papers.
This first card is a combination of those products. The background paper is an unknown paper that I picked up at a scrapbook store. The birds are from Cavallini Papers. I took the negative part of chipboard and painted it with gesso and added some white glitter on top of the wet gesso. The flower in the corner is from a ribbon that I picked up at Walmart's fabric department. The leaves around it are made with a Martha Stewart punch and I punched the packaging that it came in.
The final touches are a resin rose from Melissa Frances, faux pearls and some prima roses.
This is the close up.
The next card was made using some recycled products. I made this card for Stamptacular Sunday's challenge. The image is from Whiff of Joy. The designer paper is recycled paper from K & Company's Carolyn Gavin. The rub on saying and the glittery apples are also from Carolyn Gavin's recycled products.
Either later today or tomorrow, I will show you some of the projects I have made with my new cricut expression.
