Cards for OWH


It's about two weeks since my last post.  Sorry about that.  There are so many fun challenges at OWH S&S Blog.  However, I couldn't keep up.  Not only busy working but also I have been down physically and emotionally.  Every morning, I had to drag myself to get out of the bed.  Hopefully I can get better soon and bring my energy and creativity back. 

Here are some make-up cards that were from last OWH Cardmaking Party and some additional cards that I made to fill up the second box of 270 cards for OWH.  I sent the first box of 215 cards before the due date for Halloween cards.  So it will be total 485 cards from our group in September.  Great job, everyone!

Thanks for stopping by!

Mahri's Giraffe Love card

Mahri is 3rd Grade artist.  She drew this image for me to make cards for OWH.  I replaced her handwritten sentiment with my computer generated font.  Other than that, I kept her original image even by piecing.  I like how it turned out.  I used the background papers from Stampin' Up! and heart border punch from Martha Stewart.

Coloring with Reinkers using Baby Wipes - Gratitude

This is so fun technique that you should try if you haven't.  Every stamped image turns out in different shade of colors.  One thing to remind, you have to use glossy papers.
