Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Before I get to today's cards, check out my earlier post about an awesome challenge and blog candy giveaway that Jen Tapler is doing to raise funds for the Alzheimer's Association. Better yet, check out what Jen has to say about it!

I have a couple more projects to show that I designed with You are the Potter by Our Daily Bread Designs. For this first one, I colored the pots (with Copic markers) to coordinate with Basic Grey's gorgeous Marrakech line.



For this next one, I played around with the Cracked Glass technique to give the main panel the crackled look, and then created a raised square frame using a combination of Nestabilities and the pinking border piercabilites.



Thanks for visiting. Enjoy your day!

Amy both of these cards are really beautiful. I love the way you did the colors on the clay pot card! It looks very Moroccan. Since I just organized my ribbon (no small feat -- why oh why do I need sooo much ribbon) I know that the ribbon on that card was from Michael's dollar bin. I have the same stuff! Can't wait to get that Marakech paper (why oh why do I have sooo much paper, I digress) out and team it up with that ribbon. I'll have to use a different main image since I haven't purchased that particular set yet!

You are amazingly talented. Your cards are so incredible... I love to look at them. I always wonder how long it takes you to create these beautiees and what you do with them. If they were mine they'd be framed and hanging all over the house!

I love the cards you make with those clay pots. i would never look at that stamp and "see" what you do with them. I am in awe of your creative genius.

America said...

Ok-here goes: Your work is ALWAYS top notch. From the various posts Ive read on your blog, it sounds like you have MANY fans that adore your work like myself. Both of these cards are beautiful in their own ways with their special "AMY" details & signature touches.

Dawn (flowergal36) said...

Two very different looks with the same set. I love that about you. You can take something and completely change the way it looks. Super cracked glass. That is hard to photograph and yours looks terrific. The paper on the first one is wonderful. I have not seen that before.

Amy said...

Oh Amy, both of these are a mouth-watering feast for the eyes! The ribbon on the first card is absolutely perfect and the rich yet subtle colors of card number 2 are beautiful together!

Libby Hickson said...
