Encore (Supposedly) 8 Hour Blanket

This is SO not an 8 hour baby blanket!  By the time I finished I had around 25 hours in it and it only measures 28" X 32".  Every time I make one of these I swear I'll never make another. I hate the twisting yarn in using two strands together. But, they sure do make nice gifts.  
This particular one was made with Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn yarn.  I had ordered Berroco yarn but it took 3 weeks to come.  Lil baby was already here so I had to get started. 
I hope that all of my friends and family that receive handmade gifts cherish the love that goes into each one.  Whether it be a handmade card or a knitted or crocheted treasure.

Thanks for looking!

Penny Black Season's Greetings

I love the clean look of this Christmas card.
I stamped the following on Ranger watercolor paper:

Red flower from Altenew Watercolor Wonders stamped in MFT Wild Cherry ink
Used waterbrush to blend ink once stamped
Black centers from PTI Peonies on Parade
Greeting from Penny Black Season's Greetings

I CASED this card.  I like hers much better but I could not find the minimalist poinsettia stamp that she used.

Altenew Watercolor Wonder

I just LOVE this stunning stamp set from Altenew - Watercolor Wonder. 

This card took forever to make. I originally made it for my step moms birthday all on watercolor paper.  I had to cut off the sentiment because I didn't like it and remount it for another occasion. Watercolored with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade. I inked up the stamps, spritzed with watercolor and stamped onto Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper.  There are three layers of color on each flower with complete drying time in between. 

This is a case of this card.
