I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries.

If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

All Aboard

Good Morning Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! We had the pleasure of sharing the birthday celebration of a very special friend on Saturday. Good food and great just doesn't get any better! Here is the card I had made for him. He is a train enthusiast so it was easy to decide what the theme should be. I really had fun making this card for such a special friend.

The image from Mo's Digital Pencil was colored with Prisma pencils and OMS then cut with a circle/scallop Nestibility using the out of the frame technique and glitter added to the smoke stack. I pierced holes in the 2nd layer of the circle Nestibility with a paper piercer. Although the picture doesn't really show it, there are 4 layer so there's a lot of pop dotting going on. The 1st layer is the entire image, the 2nd layer is the train engine with the smoke from the stack, the 3rd layer is just the train engine and the 4th layer is the number that was computer generate then cut with the smallest Nestibility and embossed then the edge lightly inked. The All Aboard was cut with Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet that several layers of card stock were glue together before cutting to add dimention to the lettering. The Palm Express was computer generated using Credit Valley font and cut with a Stampin' Up window word punch.

Thanks for stopping by, if you haven't already, leave a comment to let me know what you think! Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow!
