Papertrey’s January Blog Hop

I made this quick card for Papertrey’s January Blog Hop.  My family has been dealing with some really horrendous medical issues so I’ve been keeping a low profile on my blog.  My card was pretty simple since that’s about all my brain is up to lately.  Hope you are enjoying the blog hop!

Papertrey Make It Monday – Winter Watercolor

I made a card yesterday for Papertrey’s Make It Monday – Winter Watercolor challenge.  Fun technique and it’s been fun to see everyone’s take on the challenge.  All the pretty cards using Enchanted Forest stamp set has me convinced I need to add it to my collection.

I wasn’t sure what kind of watercolor background I was going to start with but started with a blue sky background then started adding fir trees to the background.  It was a learning experience since the wetter the paper, the shadowy the fir tree looked.  So I kept painting trees as the watercolor paper continued to dry.  Here’s what the watercolor image looked like before I did my stamping.

The snowflake images are from Snowflake Medley.  I added a sentiment from Winter Woods before I applied the chunky embossing powder to enhance the snowlike image. Supplies are listed below.

Papertrey Make It Monday – 2018 A La Carte Challenge

How about squeezing 2 more cards into 2018?  I am almost out of time before we hit midnight here on the west coast.  So I selected Papertrey’s Make It Monday #316 – Stenciled Edges for Papertrey’s A La Carte challenge.  I wanted to replenish my Christmas stash of cards so decided to make some Christmas themed cards.  I stenciled the corners with stencil paste rather than ink.  Hope 2018 was good to you and that your 2019 starts off well.  Card supplies are listed below.
