Celebrate every day


Hope you're well and if not, lots of thoughts your way. We're approaching the winter darkness fast here in the Northern Hemisphere and I'm all in for celebrating something every day; giving thanks that I have a home, food every day, fresh water to drink and family and friends. My grandfather taught it to me when I was a child.

Addicted to Stamps: Make your mark
Less Is More: Celebrate

Materials used:
Bazzill hammered card stock, used some tape to strip of thin layers of it to create some extra texture.
Masked a panel and colured it with layers of Distress inks.
Free stamp from the Craft Stamper magazine, I cut out the tiny hearts, stamped with black ink. Then with embossing ink and heat embossed with fine clear powder.
ART-C feather stamps and dies on those smaller snippets in my scrap heap.
Distress ink and Sakura pens to colour the feathers, 3 D squares to layer the cut outs.



Something to listen at this beautiful day!


Last but not least, a monster to Addicted to CAS, if it's ok with a large cut out, a wooden Monster from Argentina on DQWV paper.

Thank you for visiting, it's much appreciated!

Love and hugs
Maarit

  7. 2 great makes Maarit. I particularly like your first card, great design, glorious colours, love the ombre effect.
    A beautiful philosophy to celebrate something every day ...too often we fail to appreciate the wonderful things (and people!) we take for granted.
