I wanted to share a picture of grandson Dillon as we celebrated his 12th birthday this weekend. (This was before we lit the candles.) Isn't he a nice looking young man!! He looks alot older than 12! He's gotten so tall--I think he's about 5'5" now. I'm so very proud of him and just had to post his picture.
We had a good time with the grandchildren---like we always do!! I'm so glad they live close enough to come visit us.
Now, let's see a card sample.
This sample uses the little stampset, Cheers to You, for the main image. To get the glasses to shine like real champaign, I unscrewed the top on my new Smooch Spritz Gold Glow and poured alittle into a small paint pot and used my aqua painter to paint the "liquid" in the glass. I love how it shines.
I wanted something to go at the top and bottom of the oval, so I punched out corners with my scallop trim corner, cut it to fit behind my oval and look, it made a great top and bottom of the oval. I like this effect.
My customers have been wanting to do a card using vellum, so we are making this one (below) in our May class. I ran the vellum through my Finial Press embossing folder to make this background. I used the retiring Bordering Blue CS for this card. I used a card by Sandi MacIver as my inspiration. Thanks, Sandi!! Again, I colored the "champagne" with the Gold Glow Smooch Spritz. I know, I know, you are supposed to spray with it, but I love painting with it.
I also painted the flowers in Best Wishes (from Ovals All set) with the gold. I used the Scallop Trim Corner and Border punches on this card, too.
Thanks for visiting today!! Have a wonderful day! Smiles, Laura
