Thinking Ahead...

Working on some Valentine's Day designs. Lately I've been spending time with paper collage and sculpture instead of just pop-ups. These roses are hand cut petals that are chalked, glittered, scored, and glued together.

Design in Progress...

This little guy is not the final version, but he's almost there. I'm creating him for a design challenge (snow themed), but he still has "issues". The mechanics of his push/pull tab that scissors his arms and legs are working well. It's the glitter and the color scheme that's not working. The glittery snow I plan on changing to felt or flocked paper (the card sheds glitter all the time!), and he needs more color contrast in his snowsuit.

The Mistaken Teacup

This is what happens when you daydream! I was happily plugging along when I accidentally cut the cord to what was supposed to be a large round basket. Instead I had to turn it into the shallow saucer. What goes with a saucer? A giant teacup!

Sliding Gift Tags


Tha back looks the same as the front, so they are nice enough to use as gift cards or tree ornaments.
