A Machine Gun, Obviously

Sorry for the blurry photo, I had to post this anyway... This was snapped as I was running to catch up to my group in the Muslim Quarter in Jerusalem so I didn't have time to focus as I didn't want to get left behind...

Green Flower Card Set

Here is a very simple set of cards I made as part of a shop order, using Basic Grey Nook and Pantry paper pad, and a Spellbinders flower die. I freehand drew stems, sketched a line for the grass before cutting it out, and finished it off with button flower centers.
Thanks for looking!

Outside Nili's gan there is a swing, and she has learned to pump, so every morning I take her early so she has time to swing a bit before going inside.

Mesibat Chumash Portrait

This is Eliyah receiving her Chumash a couple of weeks ago. We had to decorate it and she requested some stamped and colored flowers, so I went to town with some Hero Arts flower images, Copics, and some glitter cardstock. She also specially requested the little ladybug on top of her name and the butterfly. If i may say so myself, hers was the nicest one there!

Photography Exhibitions

This is me and my sister-in-law Ingrid, at the exhibition which took place a couple of weeks ago in the hall in the mall here in Modiin. The photographs were entered into a contest for prizes, and then sold for charity. Out of 300 pictures 30 were chosen to be part of the show, and both of ours were among them! (Mine is just to my right, and Ingrid's is just to her left.)
This is me in front of my series of photographs at the exhibition held for my photography class at a local framing shop. It was so fun to see my pictures blown up like this!

Thanks for coming, those of you who could make it! I really appreciated the support!

Yom Haatzmaut in Herzelia

On Yom Haatzmaut we went to Herzelia to see the boat show. All the boats leave the harbor in a long line, with their Israeli flags waving, and then some Navy boats join and blow their horns. It is really a beautiful sight to see so many boats at the same time! The kids enjoyed it despite the warm weather and the long walk down the pier to the viewing location. Here are some pictures I took along the way.
The first thing we saw was these airplanes flying in formation. Maybe they were flying to the Tel Aviv air show...
I loved this boat with the star on its sail. You can also see a flair up in the sky.
That is one of the Navy boats in the distance.
This couple cracked me up. You get to see some real characters on a beach!
Here you can see the long line of boats that has left the harbor.
These are the boats as they leave the harbor.
Here are some Navy soldiers watching the show.

And this guy was just minding his own business, ignoring the whole show!

On the way home we saw some airplanes flying in loops, from the Tel Aviv air show.

All in all it was a nice morning, and it was nice to do something with the Israeli masses on such a day. Of course we had the traditional bbq in the afternoon as well, with family, which was fun too!

Color Me Flowers

Hi there!
So, if you are still checking in, sorry for the lack of blog posts lately. I have been busy making tons of new cards and will post them slowly, but for now here is an older card, made with Hero Arts Color Me Flowers set and Prismacolor pencils. The stems and leaves are from Autumn Leaves Mindy's Flowers set, and I paperpieced the leaves with some green Bazzill.
Thanks for looking and leave a comment if you could so I know who all is looking here!

Thinking of You Card

Well, here is another card, this one with my good old Hero Arts flower, Prismacolor pencils, and my new Spellbinders die. Just had to use it! I hand wrote the sentiment, and hand stitched around the border.
Thanks for looking!

Purple and Yellow

Here is another card using Prismacolor colored pencils, and my new Spellbinders die.
I embossed it and then inked over it with white ink.
I hand drew the leaves and stems of the flowers, and the flowers are Hero Arts stamps, I think from the set called Color Me Flowers.
It was fun to use this color scheme, as purple is always a hard color for me...

Extra Large Flower Card


Here is a card using an extra large Hero Arts flower stamp.
I colored it using Prismacolor colored pencils, and hand drew the leaves. The sentiment is a hero arts mini block stamp.
I am entering this card into the contest at Papertrey Ink. I love their products but don't have any yet, so to win this would be absolutely amazing....

Masked Flower Card

Here is yet another card... Are you sick of them yet??? They sure are fun to make!
I used my trusty set of Hero Arts flower stamps again, and colored them in with colored pencil.

Technique Tip: First I stamped the big yellow flower, then created a mask for it from scratch paper and positioned it with temporary adhesive. Then I stamped the next flower, masked it, and so on.

Thanks for looking!

Butterfly Card Blues


Here is another colored pencil card, showcasing a Hero Arts digital image.

A Card to Share

Here is another card I made inspired by Jill Foster and her beautiful coloring and distressing.
The stamp is from Mindy's Flowers by Autumn Leaves, and I hand drew the leaves with a sharpie pen. I used my colored pencils to color it all in, and accented the flowers with contrasting buttons. I have been enjoying using unexpected color combinations, and liking the results!

What do you think?

Hello Friend Card

Here is a card I made recently, that is one of my favorite color combinations.
It is heavily inspired by one of my favorite card makers, Jill Foster.
I used my new spellbinders die for the first time for that inverted scallop circle, and I have certainly been giving my colored pencils a workout lately and I'm loving it!

Technique tip: To get the string to wrap around the card, I cut a small slit in the spine of the card, and threaded the twine through it.
I don't have a lot of flower stamps, so I have been experimenting using the same stamps over again in different ways to get different looks. Stamping off-center like this is one way to get a new look from an old stamp.
For this card, because the base is darker, I added a white piece to the inside to give place to write, and decorated it with more of the same stamp.

Thanks for looking, and don't forget to leave a comment!

Quick and Simple

Here is a very quick and easy card I made the other day, using some papers from Basic Grey Green at Heart again. I really love this paper pad!
The flower was cut from some craft store felt- I just hand drew it with a pen, and cut it out. The leaves are also hand cut, and the polka dots are a strip of decorative tape.
