Background art

Saturday, September 19, 2009


Well, I have been busy making cards. As you well know, I love my Cricut and just have to have at least one card done with it! That would be the lavendar card with butterflies.

The orange card has bkground of newsprint and I colore the flower with sharpie markers. That was fun. Next on the adjenda, is the cute little magnolia stamp. I just ordered 2 more of these sweeties! I used sharpies once again, along with embossing folders and spellbinder dies. The last card here, is done on scrapbook paper and I used a brass stencil with stencil past to get this effect. Stamped a few leaves on the side and voila~~~ Please leave a comment on what you think of these cards.

Very nice cards, I just love the last one with the trees it is beautiful. I had to look closely as I thought at first the trees were cut with the cricut. My birthday is the 24th if you want to send it to me (wink wink) :-)

Oh my gosh, Cheryl. Your cards are so lovely. I can't decide which one I love the most as they are all so beautiful.

OK, I hate to ask as I can see my list of "gotta haves" growing once again, but what is stencil paste? It made such a pretty card.

I love the cards that you colored with your Sharpie markers. I have never tried them, but I sure will now thanks to you sharing.

Great job, my friend, and I am so happy you shared your cards with us.
