Another Quilt card

Just using some scraps of the almost retired DSP. This time I experimented with some triangular blocks (used the retired postage stamp punch and cut some in half diagonally). I think it looks like a windmill. The DSP is from the Falling in Love suite and the Happy Hearts embossing folder is also on the retirement list 😢. The sentiment is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and Thankfully is not retiring! The actual card is officially in the mail! I made it for a purpose. 

White Watercolour Pencil with Beautiful You 

I must say a white watercolour pencil is something I had somewhat protested to. Any good watercolourist would tell you no I do not use white I use the paper to create my white. So I decided to move beyond the bounds of watercolour and try my watercolour pencil as like a pastel pencil and use white on a darker paper a common pastel technique and I love the harmony of it. Yay for versatility!!!!

Easter card

Just sharing a little Easter card that I’ll fess up to the fact I coloured it with my Copics not 100% Stampin Up but the beauty of Stampin Up is it can be easily used with your favourite arts and crafts product. You don’t have to give up everything else just to enjoy Stampin Up products!!!

Window Box Lantern 

I made this little hexagonal box using the Window box dies and Rich Razzleberry card stock! I put a flameless candle in it and now have a great gift!!! I’m thinking at some point I want to do one of those hexagonal little paper purses. It even can make cute little Easter baskets!!!

Technique class 2 card 2 pressure embossing 

The Second card I’m teaching at my technique class is using pressure embossing as you may have noticed I’m featuring the Dragonfly Dream bundle this time. My original date for this class is now full so I’m offering a second class on the 13th of April although I’m still leaving the 14th open for a class if that works better for everyone. The class is at my home and is $20 and we make 3 technique cards plus one surprise project. This time the surprise project is a 3D item! Email me for more information stampinsmilesbyjackie@gmail.com.
