I have a Parisian Breeze class coming up this weekend, and have been getting the class packets ready, but between DirectTV coming, our old cable coming to disconnect, Eric having a Doc appt, having a dinner meeting, this week is speeding by, and it has been so stinkin' hot here…ugh! You would think we live in the desert or something….oh wait….we do.
I had a fun mail day the other day, and have some RAK's to share with you…I'm gonna be mean and spread em out, that way in case I don't have time to sit and stamp, you at least having something new to look at.
This one is by our friend Ellie Wilkins, and it is a photograph of cacti's, and I am not sure if it is real flowers coming out like flames, or if they are blown glass flames coming out, either way it it is gorgeous!!!!
Breathtaking card by Ellie Wilkins:
It is actually a photograph that is run through the cuttlebug, and then cut into threes, then each piece is mounted on cardstock and then adhered to a regular size card….isn't it cool?
I have done this with stamps, but never a photo, holy moly!
So if Ellie does not read my blog and correct me, I will see her at class this weekend, and I will find out about the red "flames", and let you know.
Added later: Ellie says "The
"flames" are indeed glass, by my most favorite artist, Dale Chihuly,
whose work was on display at the Desert Botanical Garden for several
months this spring. Ed and I have been members of the garden for many
years and one of the best perks of being a member was free tickets to
see this extraordinary exhibit. I think we went 5 times!!
I have also done the cuttlebug embossing on photos of my roses and they turned out great too! Super quick card!!" – Thanks Ellie for clarifying that for us! Beautiful!!!
I have an adorable card from Shelli Deckard, my pal from Prescott Pines, and I will share that another day. All I can say is Yeehaw! I love it!!!
Have an awesome Friday, and thanks for stopping in!
