I love making handmade cards. In fact, any time I don't give someone in my family a handmade card, they yell at me. A handmade card is a lovely way to show how much you care about the recipient. Today I'm sharing two different cards that you can make with your ScanNCut!
Your ScanNCut machine has lots of built-in quilt block designs.
But what if you're not a sewer?
No worries! Today's project is all about using those designs to create a paper quilt! Watch the video for the how-to:
Here is the card from the video:
In red and green, this would make a great Christmas card, don't you think? Beautiful and so simple! I'm excited to try out a bunch of different quilt block designs as paper creations!
This next card features a custom region embossed design.
I love the tone-on-tone look here:
You can see the embossing a little bit more clearly in these two 5-second video clips:
This weekend, I was looking through photos and I realized that I had forgotten to share photos from the Urban Sketch Weekend back in April! It was a great weekend filled with super talented women. Each and every one of them entered the room swearing up and down that they couldn't draw. And yet each and every one of them proved to themselves that they could! It was magical. Take a peek:
We took a field trip to sketch at the Sheep Festival! (Of course, I was so enamored of the sheep that I forgot to take photos of most of the paintings the students made!)
We worked on color mixing.
We practiced different approaches to sketching.
We took a field trip to a coffee shop to sketch.
It was a great weekend and I will remind all of you that drawing is a practice. You can do it if you try!
