Goodbye 2009

Yes, 2009 moved too quickly on some days. I have lots of photos that never got posted. So this is my brief catchup for some that I want to still share.

Yes, that is real birch bark from trees that to be removed this past summer. Brilliance ink was used to stamp on the black glossy paper.

Paper pieceing was done for the bird's body and acrylic paints were used on the background.

I cut some embellishment frames dies from a coke can with my Cuttlebug. I first added a piece of craft foam to the back so the dimension would be retained.

Mr. Raven enjoyed the last berries of the summer. Lots of distress ink applied with cut n dry sponges.

Love the sticky backed canvas--used it for the base of the flower.

Welcome 2010!
Wishing you the very best as a new decade begins!

New things for a new year!
Here I am trying my hand at embossing some metal over chipboard.


  1. Especially loe the first two cards. Very nice. Happy New Year! Project 365 on my blog. Check it out!

  3. Gasp! I see the card you sent me! :)

  4. Oh and I hit enter too soon, but have a fantastic 2010!

  5. Gorgeous! Each and every card. The birch bark card is amazing! I don't think I've ever seen black glossy card stock and it is amazing the way you've used it with the brilliance ink. It is WONDERFUL seeing you post again. I miss seeing your creativity!


  6. Such beautiful cards and projects, Jan. You are truly an amazingly talented artist! Happy New Year to you :)

  7. Hurray for 2010! Your beautiful style always shines through, Jan. These are no exception.

  8. Hi, Jan! What a treat to see your "Enjoy Every Moment" card again with the birch bark! I remember it from Stamptoberfest. So nice! Put a smile right on my face! I also like the card with the raven and the distress ink background a lot! :-)
