Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland…..

winter wonderland

It seems strange to be making a winter card right now, this has got to be one of the mildest winters in Ky I can ever remember! But the challenge this time over at Lawnscaping is Winter Wonderland so I broke out my Making Frosty Friends and Critters in the Forest sets. This cute little snowy owl is sporting earmuffs and sitting on a tree stump that’s covered in liquid applique snow and glitter. The background paper is from Close To My Heart and I thought it went perfectly with the stamped images.

More Emily…

Here’s another collage inspired by Emily Dickinson. This one is on a chunky canvas and I tried something new for the background, I stitched organza fabric onto of the vintage music paper. I think it adds a nice soft romantic touch. The focal point is a stained wooden tag with vintage book paper, a silhouette on canvas, the quote and a bird charm. I also added a muslin flower with a vintage button and wrapped some lace around the canvas too.

Here’s another recent collage. Guess I’m on a quote kick, this one is inspired by a William Blake quote. It’s on 5″ x 7″ canvas board painted grey with vintage music sheet background. The cage is on a transparency and it’s embellished with a silver bird charm, metal key, metal clip, vintage measuring tape and letter beads.

Dear Emily,

I adore Emily Dickinson’s poetry. This collage was inspired by one of her most famous quotes. It’s on a 5″ x 7″ canvas board. The main images are of a bird cage and womans silhouette with a bird sitting on top of the cage. I embellished it with vintage measuring tape, a flower I made from muslin and a vintage button and a fountain pen nib.

It’s a little late for holiday cards but I had to share this one. It’s the card I made for my husband this year, inspired by the “Major Award” in a Christmas Story. All the shapes were die cut with my Silhouette machine. On the outside of the envelope I stamped a wood background and the word “fragile”, must be French.
