Hello everyone!! It has been a beautiful weekend but now we are awaiting some thunderstorms. The sky is darkening and there's a gentle breeze. I love spring time thunderstorms. I find them quite soothing. I know I know silly me.
Well three of us ladies got together last Friday and we all brought card ideas to the table.Surprisingly June and I both felt the need to add a little Christmas and both of us used the color teal in our cards. We had all gone to Michaels a few weeks ago. Everything seemed to be on sale in the papercrafting section and we both bought and embossing powder by Recollections called Vintage Mint. It has a real pretty pale teal color to it with some larger glitter flecks.
I'm really beginning to love this color for Christmas cards. I think I'll be doing more of them in this color combo.
The card on the left I had used the embossing powder over white pigment ink. I matted it over a brown shimmer paper. These two colors go so well together. The second card I used Tim Holtz distress ink pad in Spruce with clear embossing powder over it. I added some rhinestones for a little pop.
The next two cards were made as an all occasion type card. With Mothers Day coming one of the cards was made into a Mothers Day Card but since I no longer have my mother with me (not even my Mother-in-law) I had no purpose for a Mothers Day card so I just made a general card. Both are adorable.
I suppose we could even used them as Birthday cards. That's what I love about general cards.
Well I'm going to go and enjoy the rain...Love Love Love the smell of falling rain and listening to the distant thunder. Till next time................................
