I love poinsettias. I have seen them in white, red and pink. I do not know if there will be more colors. I made this card with a sketch of EdithDesigns (that is me!). I printed the image several times to cut out for a 3D effect. This time I outlined with Perfect Pens from Ranger and then I applied gold embossing powder and heat tool. I painted the picture with Caran D'Ache watercolors. I added a beautiful organza ribbon with gold flakes snow applications.

A kitten for Christmas

This is my kitten-gift for Christmas. Surely someone would be very happy to receive it! As usual, it was made with a drawing of EdithDesigns© (that is me!). The image was "popped" for a 3D effect. I painted it with Caran d'Ache watercolors and La Plume pens. The red ribbon was painted with red glitter paint and I used metallic paint in the box. There are several layers of Bazzill cardstock and miscellaneous Christmas paper and K&Company Specialty Christmas paper. I dry embossed the paper with a2 Lace Tree Cuttlebug Provo Craft with my Cuttlebug Machine and then I used the sand technique. I sew all layers using silk thread with my sewing machine. There is a golden ribbon with a bow and some green crystals.

Cute Christmas Kitten ~ Love

This is my favorite kitten, but I haven't give him a name yet, so up to now he is Kitten on a Christmas boot. This card has many layers of cardstock and of course, I made it with a drawing of EdithDesigns, me:) It is a card that has many details and a lots of stitches.

I painted image with Caran D'Ache watercolors, La Plume pens, puffy white paint and acrylic metallic colors. The candy cane has All Night Media clear crystal effect. I used Bazzill cardstock, K&Company Christmas cardstock, red and gold organza ribbon and also gold ribbon. The boot and the head of the kitten were "popped" two and three times for a 3D effect. I sewed all layers with golden silk thread.

Grateful turkey ~ Thanksgiving

I really had fun making this card. It is my "Grateful Turkey", an "EdithDesign" drawing. When I was drawing this cute turkey, I thought that if turkeys could say something, would be this sentence:) When I finished the sketch I looked for the appropriate papers and card stocks to match and gradually added details.

I finished decorating the card with a "flower-lettuce" over the ribbon on the left. The glittered turkey has also a lettuce, which has crystal effect, on its wings.

Jo and Joe, the little pilgrims...

These are my little pilgrims, Jo and Joe. I made this card with an EdithDesigns drawing. I used Bazzill cardstock and a beautiful paper suitable for Thanksgiving. I printed out the cute Little Pilgrims 3 times, to give them a 3D effect. Each layer was delineated, hand-painted and carefully cut out by hand. I painted the images with Caran d'Ache Watercolor. I used crystal effect in Joe's hat’s buckle and in the shoes of both and I added a beautiful organza ribbon. I sewed the layers of paper and cardboard both outside and inside with beautiful stitching on my sewing machine, using gold silk thread, which gives to the card a very elegant touch. I really enjoyed making this card!

I made these two cards for Thanksgiving. I love the colors of this celebration! Both cards were made with “EdithDesigns” images, water colored and outlined by hand.

Here is Max, the Pilgrim. The pumpkin and shoes have crystal effects and Max was "popped up" three times for a 3D effect. I used beautiful paper, dry embossed Bazzill card stock, some crystals and natural twigs.

She is Maxine, the Pilgrim, very happy taking her pie to the celebration. Her shoes and the pie have crystal effect. I used many layers of paper and added dry embossed card stock Bazzill, to which I applied the sand technique to bring out the colors.

My card to Jaimie...

This card is for Jaimie. I made this drawing especially for her and I called "Rex Black Belt". I think most of you should already know her sad story. In the photos it is not written the sentiment yet. It is very difficult to write something nice that can cheer her under this immense tragedy. I hope when she receives the huge amount of cards that everybody is sending to her, she can feel a little better.
