February 2013

Please forgive me as I am not real good at keeping my blog fresh and inviting.  Those of you who know me know that I am blessed with one of the great autoimmune diseases called MS.  Need I say more?

Last year - 2012 - I'd been very busy teaching online classes for a local university which kept my focus.  However, I have dusted off the cobwebs on this blog and am ready to show you some of recent card creations.  Here is my most recent.

This was a wedding card for our nephew who had a Chicago Blackhawk theme.  The digital image is from McMahon Five Designs.

Star Bright.........

Here is another card I made several versions of.  This design was from one of the MS ladies. So kudos to her.

Using midnight blue, MS Cloisonne' Star was stamped and cut out and adhered to an embossed white card.  The card was punched with a Martha Stewart's punch and blue paper was glued to the inside of card so the blue pops through the punched design.  Pretty cool huh?

New Christmas Cards

This is a card I made for our Michael Strong Holiday Card Swap.

The trees were stamped on brown cardstock with Versamark ink, embossed in white and cutout.  The paper is from PaperWishes and the snowflakes were cut using a Cricut. Brown cardstock frames the main moss green card.  Simple and elegant!

Holiday Hop - Michael Strong Yahoo Group

Happy Holidays Everyone!

This will be my first blog with MS group.  I am still in the learning phase of card making.  However, I must say that this year has been a wonderful learning experience.  So many of you have inspired me to try new things.  Trying to make cards with a disability, (MS) is no easy task.  However, I do what I can when I can.

Here is my tag utilizing MS Cloisonné small Christmas trees. The tree was embossed with red/gold glitter embossing powder.  The snowflakes were punched using one of the first punches I purchased.  Santa's sleigh, reindeer and moon were cut using a Cricut.  The cardstock is a metallic finish in a dark brown color tied with a red metallic ribbon and white sheer ribbon.
