Candy Cane Birds

new gift tags
family tree art
After the Thanksgiving day I was busy creating some new designs. It was fun taking time to relax and brainstorming new ideas. Here are two things I worked on. The family tree idea has been floating in my head for some time now. The candy cane birds just popped in my head this weekend. These items will be available in my shop this week.

More Gift Tags

I have been working on some more handmade gift tags! These tags are more funky with the marbelized paper. I backed them with a solid green card stock. Let me know what you think.

New note cards

I found this cardstock that I had used for my previous business cards. I thought my designs would look great as note cards on them. The nutmeg color is perfect for the fall season, and would be great for personal use, or as a gift. They will be available in my Etsy store within the next couple of days.

Stamping Away

I have showed you before my attempts to silk screen on fabric. To be honest with you, I am still trying to perfect the technique. I'll keep you posted on my progress. Yesterday, I purchased a Speedball stamping kit from Hobby Lobby. The stamp is made out of an eraser like material, which is much easier to cut than linoleum block. After I stamped the image, I embellished it with a line drawing. I am experimenting a few ideas to use for Christmas cards. It is so much fun playing around with this technique. I feel like a kid in art class!
