A rare and gentle thing......

This week at SEW MANY CARDS Challenge. This little guy or girl is a freebie for the challenge. Talk about CUTE!!!! Adorable.... I had so much fun making this card is called A Free Standing Card. It looked hard but once I got started it was not hard at all. I color with Copic Markers. Almost forgot this images is called "BUTTERFLY".
The stamp with the saying on it is from The Angel Company. I used ribbon, button, scrapper floss in green and orange. I used my Crocodile to punch the hole and set the brad. I do not even know if that is the way you spell it??? Oh well. You know what I mean. I show you how it look all folder up and it is done. I hope you enjoy these card. I have been trying to fine different types of cards to make instead of the same old ones.

Links that form a chain of love. The Beauty that only God knows...

I just love doing cards like these. The ways of nature are endless and the beauty is everywhere and it is in all the way we can express it on paper. I thought I would share then with you. Look at your card and see where you are going to want your focal point, that is going to be you lightest area where your eye will look first. It is a good idea to have your card size a little bigger because when you are all done you will want to trim the edges of your card, gives it a clean finish. I used sponges on these cards. Always start with your lightest colors, blending softly, mostly take your time and get a good blend to the colors and then go on to your next colors just a little darker working toward your darkest color. Add your finishing touches the many different types grasses, tree branch, a silhouette. Any dye base ink works fine. This was done on matte paper. If you have a question let me know.

You Pull My Heart Strings

Sew Many Cards is sponsoring a challenge for Tellens Place if you would like to stop by there store click here. Ellen’s Place Designs is the home of Tellen Design images. These images are drawn by the owner, Terry’s, son. Terry thought it would be fun for her son to continue these images for her as he had done in 1999, when she first began selling her crafts at various venues. With the digital world becoming such an excited and explosive place with thousands of images to delight everyone’s fancy, it seemed natural to add to that universe.
Tellen’s Place Designs became home to these images for a wide variety of reasons. Having a home to call their own, this opened the door to creativity on so many levels; especially for beginners. Adding card and mini album kits answered many calls to those who wanted to dabble in the scrap world but did not have the time or space to house all of the goods needed to “scrap a world fantastic.”
Tellen’s Place is the beginning, where it all started. It is a place where Tellen Design images come to life through the weekly challenges. We are delighted to share the digital world with others and even more delighted to sponsor Sew Many Challenges, another wonderful place to be. We invite you to visit us at your next opportunity. If you would like to check out Tellens Place blog just click here.
A little about my card. It is an Easel card. I colored it with Copic markers. I used 2 of Sew many Cards images one is heart balloons and the other one is Tayla baby in tree. If you would like to see more of Sew Many Cards images click here. I cute both images out. Punched out some branches and added some flowers and a bow. I hope you enjoy my card.

I did something different I tried blending two colors together with the copic markers and I thought it turned out pretty good, it is something new I learned how to do. I'm also not one to do black hair so I thought I would try it, it's ok but I need some more work on that. I'm taking an on line class it is for 4 weeks and I'm trying the new things that Colleen (Teacher) has been showing us. I really happy with the things she has been showing us and I do think I will learn from her. Back to my card I also added some Spare Parts embellishments.
