Dotted Wish Big Cupcake

From the previous card that I made I decided to use the negative dots and create a background by adding small foam dots behind each polka dot and adhering them to a white panel. In keeping with the rainbow theme I stamped the cupcake on Bristol Smooth Cardstock and watercolored it with the same Distress Oxide Inks. The sentiment is a die from My Favorite Things.

Returned with Honor Missionary Card

My friends nephew recently returned from a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She wanted to make a welcome home card for him. I had recently used this photograph as a background for cards I made to sent to missionaries serving from out ward and thought it would make a good welcome home card. We created a missionary name tag and added it to the top right corner, created a sentiment in the Silhouette to finish the card off.

Written in the Stars Birthday

I had open heart surgery in February and it has been hard to get back into adding new creations to my blog. I’ve decided that I will keep it short and simple with just a picture and the products used to create the card.
