More of the 10 cards....

As for yesterday's post with the onesies, not many of you guessed, actually only one of you, but she got it exactly right!!! Juanita thought that the two I made were the butterfly with the path and the flower that looked rock n' rolled. I couldn't rock n' roll it because it was a stencil, but after I had painted the flower originally just that darker red color I thought it looked too flat, so I went back in and added some lighter highlights and a line of glitter along each petal. I also put glitter on my butterfly and on the words on the butterfly onesie but it's not dry in the the picture. Thanks for guessing Juanita!!!

Do you remember how I had some posts showing you a set of 10 cards I made for a friend that "bought" them at a service auction at my Church? I had been using Natural Beauty (retiring) for them all? Well, here are a couple more. The only thing she asked for was Thank You cards.

This plum one was my least favorite of them all, but it's okay:

Stamp Sets: Natural Beauty, Holidays & Wishes (Fall - Winter 2007 Preview set) Card Stock: Watercolor Paper, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum Ink: Black StazOn Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aqua Painter, Plum buttons by SU!, CB Bloom Dots A2 embossing folder, Dimensionals, ticket corner punch

I really like this apricot one for its simplicity:

Stamp Sets: Natural Beauty, Holidays & Wishes (Fall - Winter 2007 Preview set) Card Stock: Apricot Appeal, Whisper White, Basic Black, Gypsy paper (Basic Grey) Ink: Black StazOn Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Baby Oil, Blending Stump, Black brads by SU!, corner rounder punch

I hope you like them, have a great day!!


  1. Hi thereLove your Natural Beauty butterfly. I am curious ... baby oil ... what was this used for ?Cheerskim

  2. I guess you use the baby oil instead of gamasol since your pregnant?I like the cards!

  3. I think they are BOTH beautiful, I am a lover of all things purple!! This is a fabulous selection of cards. I'm with Kim, I know what it's used for but dosen't it leave oil on the paper?? Does it cause a different effect than Gamsol does to the finished product?? Thank you for all the wonderful and enchanting things you give us!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
