Is it here yet? Ah, fall, how I love you. I am already getting excited about putting more blankets back on the bed. I know that we will probably have at least some more heat, but it is so close I can taste it. Oh, and it tastes wonderful! A bit like pumpkin spice…
Have I told you that I bought a new set of colored pencils? I thought I really needed to expand the color selection that was open to me and so I made the plunge. I am now using Prismacolor watercolor colored pencils and I am liking them quite a bit. I am not exactly sure how to share what colors I am using on each project, but I am sure that with my husbands help we will come up with a good solution.
In the past, I have tried to add a bit of sparkle to die cuts with embossing powder and it has never quite worked the way I hoped it would. Then I made a bit of a mess trying to use a product for the first time and went to YouTube to figure out what I should have done. In the video was a bit about using it with embossing powder on die cuts, and Viola! This is what I have been trying to do. What a great effect.
For some reason this just had to be a calico when I was looking at it. I think it has to do with the look on her face, she is just so happy with what she has accomplished. Even if it isn’t quite what she is supposed to have done. I love that sense of pride and just pure happiness.
As I am trying to write this my pup is telling me that his kid needs to give me fresh water. He is a funny little dog. He thinks he is the kid’s nanny so will come to tell me if they are doing something he thinks they shouldn’t be doing, or if there is something he thinks they should be doing and aren’t. He isn’t so happy about them growing up for the most part, but it does come with some perks for him so he has adjusted.
When I was making this card I realized that I have a tendency to have a set pattern of what I do with each card, and it normally works well for me. This time since I was making a different size and shape than normal however it went a bit wrong doing that. I cut the wrong size card base the first try and the wrong envelope liner. Small things but frustrating none the least.
