471  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap--May 2013 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: May 23, 2013 10:56:38 AM

Got this gorgeous chickadee card made my WiccadWitch today.
I have inspected it closely and guess that it is pen and ink and colored pencil. Is that right?
I truly love it. I get chickadees to eat out of my hand if I sit still for 20 minutes. They are such darlings.
Then 25 years ago when I was walking in the woods, one landed on my head for a few moments. Fun!
Thanks for such a wonderful card, WW!!

Got THE coolest Moveables card from pilarfarmer!!  It moves in so many ways. My hubby thought it was absolutely awesome, too

Coffin, even using wood grain paper!


Cool hinge on it, opens to reveal the poor deceased soul inside. But he's all cramped up, so....


Let him stretch those old bones out for a little while!

Is this great or what?
Thank you sooo much pilarfarmer. Great job!!  You can pick me for moveables any time!!

Here is the card that went missing in the mail for wdicwg's Nature Spirits theme. I called it the  Bashful Old Tree Spirit.  I am making a different one today and sending it out...

KittyHerman angeled for me with this dapper dude... "Whiskers Le Meow"  Love him!!



What I really like about Kitty's work is that she not only does awesome pen and ink and color, but she then cuts it out and puts it on a great background... I am inspired by this and will try it out soon.

Awesome envie it came in -



Thanks Kitty!!!

Seed Packets was the subject matter I asked for. cmarion3 made me such a fantastic card! It is stitched, one of my favorite components in a card. The back indicates that it is pennyroyal which is an herb that smells wonderful - like super intense mint. It repels nasty bugs. I have used it on my kitties for fleas.
I love the artwork and that she put branches on.
I NEVER think of doing rounded edge cards. Now I am inspired to tackle it.
Thanks so much, cmarion3!!

476  ... and one for Dad in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by blupaisan on: May 17, 2013 03:44:32 AM

I have been mailing so many cards to Mom that I thought Dad might feel left out, as he is feeling rather down as well. This birchbark came from a hike in the Adirondacks. I am always on the lookout for bark with a natural hole in it so I can tuck some creature inside. Dad collected bugs for many years so I chose a bright green beetle to hide behind the bark.

477  Ermine card for Mom in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by blupaisan on: May 17, 2013 03:39:49 AM


I explained to Mom that this was an ermine. I was inspired to do it because my daughter brought over her ferret to play with my 8 week old kitten. It was a hillarious encounter.
I once saw an ermine up close. He was not afraid of me at all. Apparently they are quite fierce. I was the janitor at a school and they had mouse traps everywhere. This ermine had found his way into the school and was stealing the dead mice out of the traps. He was gorgeous.

478  a Twist on MOm's cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by blupaisan on: May 16, 2013 04:55:11 PM


decided to experiment. Put drops of watercolor on paper, then blew like crazy through a straw. Kinda fun but made me dizzy.  mom commented that 'it was not my usual stuff.'  Think if she were not so polite, she woulda said , 'What the Hell is this??"  Hee hee.

480  Mother's Day card in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by blupaisan on: May 12, 2013 04:44:22 PM


Mom liked this card. She was an avid gardener in her day. What I wrote inside made her cry. (a good cry...)
