My new card!

Finally! Here is my new card. As always, as I started from zero (I mean from the drawing), it takes me too much time to make my cards. There is a lot of dedication and time involved on this card. On the outside, flowers, leaves and butterfly have crystal effect. Each layer of the images was dry embossed with gold embossing powder. On the inside I added beautiful decorative stitches that I made with gold silk thread.

140lb watercolor cardstock, Bazzill cardstock burgundy and green color, miscellaneous paper, handmade drawing from “EdithDesigns”, gold embossing powders, Emboss a2 Script Texture Cuttlebug, Spellbinder Classic Scallop Circle, Caran d'Ache Watercolors, LaPlume Pencils, DMC Silk Thread, All Night Media Liquid Embossing, Burgundy dew drops, Gold embossing powders, Darice Heat Tool,

Miss Amelia, New Release!

This is Miss Amelia. I made this sketch thinking in the little turtle of a dear friend, which gives her great joy. Miss Amelia can wear different colors of all seasons on her flowers. In this card she is wearing autumn colors but in spring she will use colorful flowers.

Larry, The Squirrel, New Release!

I love squirrels! This is Larry, a nice squirrel ready to jump to eat his acorns! I draw this sketch some time ago and I finally got the chance to use it. There are many layers of beautiful papers and cardstocks in fall colors. If you want to have Larry's sketch for your hand work, image is available here.

Birds in love. New card and new release!

I still have no name for these birds in love. They are super cute! I made this card using pastel color papers over a blue and violet background. The birds are "popped". In the top layer I put glitter for a light shining effect. I added a small bright flower on her head. I made a roll of paper, the same that I used on the label, to form the stick where the birds are supported. I cut the leaves using a Sizzlits die. A little tag hangs from the "branch”. The small chains allow it to move. The pale golden ribbon combines with the golden thread that I used to sew the layers of cardstock. This new sketch is available here.

I would love to hear some comments!
