Sesame Street

My niece Chloe came over and helped me make these Sesame Street Character cards.  We had a lot of fun and she was very helpful.  I hope she comes back soon as I need to make some Angry Birds cards.  My kids grew up on Sesame Street programs and I have a great respect for the tv show.  We made all these cards with punches and die cuts.

Happy Halloween

                                    Of course I got this idea from Pinterest and then made it my own way!
                                                                                   Happy Halloween everyone!

The Fall colors are so beautiful in our neighbor today so it inspired me to make a colorful card.
Thanks to Cindy B. for the sentiment!

Let it snow

I stamped the image with Versamark black ink.  I used Glossy Accents on the snow.
I punched out a circle and stamped little snowflakes in aqua ink.  I let it dry and then
added the sentiment.  I used my distress markers to color the image.  The snowflakes are
from a Martha Stewart punch.  The middle of the snowflakes are little acrylic beads that I
dyed with alcohol ink. The polka dot background paper is made by Recollections and is
from Michaels.  I had fun making this card because it is outside my normal card making
which is always flowers!!!

My friend Kim and I went to Olive Garden for lunch and then I drug her and her sore foot to Pat Catan's
craft store. I was so excited to get this embossing folder on sale for $2.50.  We were walking out and Kim
found this set of flourish stamps on clearance.  When I got to the register the stamps rang up for
50 cents.  I hit the jackpot that day and didn't even have to go to the casino!!!

I stamped the flourish in red ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
It is real shiny and pretty but the picture doesn't show and give it justice.

I was playing around with watercolor techniques that I had learned in my creative chemistry class last Spring.
I colored the stamps with distress markers the spritzed them with water before stamping them.  It is kind of a wild color selection but I thought it all came together well. The background was so busy I did not put a lot of ribbon or embellishment on it.

Welcome to Sherry's Craft Room. This is my new blog that my daughter helped me make as I am very
illiterate when it comes to computers. I make cards for personal use and I also make cards for Operation
Write Home. I have been making cards for about 5 years and I have met some great friends with my hobby and looking forward to getting into blog circles and getting inspiration and also sharing my crafts.  Thanks for stopping by!
