More than acrylic paints

Hello everyone,
From early in the morning until about two o'clock it was raining here. Nothing special you'll say, but I could not start my jogging hour:-)) Nope, I will not go jogging out in the rain ..... don't like to get wet, hehehe. What do I have today?? Some old projects made in June and a handmade card I worked on today. More than acrylic paints on an art journal page, since we had to make the page touchable. So I embossed, cut white felt and added acrylic paints and Prisma coloring pencils to the page. The white fields are pieces of felt. The black fields are black embossed fields. The green leaves on the image her had are also embossed. For the second page I drew and colored a sunny face since we supposed to have summer (wish we had a real summer....). I like these pages so, so much. For a few days my partner didn't respond to my request to send me her address. Am I bad when I then hoped she would not sent me her addy ..... feeling bad ...:-(( But I am happy she did, so these pages will leave for their trip to the USA:-D

Prompt: Tactile textures. Make your page deliciously touchable.

Prompt: Solstice: What does this season promise?
It is the first day of Summer or Winter depending on which hemisphere you reside in.

I created a handmade card for a colleague, who doesn't feels well and I wanted to spoil her with a handmade card. A challenge for me was to use the many card stock I have. It's more as an instruction; not only buying, but also using my nice card stock☺It also helps to create a card with more depth and motion, because of the colours in coordination with the embellishment, etc. The flowery layer card stock is cut with the Cricut, using the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cartridge. The nice border is created using a EK success punch. The pearls are added using Viva Pearl Pen, colour 102. The image is a rubber stamp from Sweetpeastamps of the set Meredith Dillman sheet 1, plate 76. This set is a set of four fairies and they are so sweet to colour. I used my Copic markers for her. She is stamped on GinaK Pure Luxury cardstock. Isn't she lovely???

Finally sharing two more handmade cards with you: a baby card and a "to you from me" card.
The baby card is for neighbors with their newborn baby girl. In June I created the green card, but still have no one to send it to. I just start a new card instead of looking around if I already have one.... recognize that???☺

Cut with my Cricut Expression using the Wild card cartridge. The cardstock is from the United Office Maxi-Farbkarton block; it is 100% recycled paper and the colours in this block are very vivid; the patterned paper is from the Daisy Dandelion A5 paper Collection; lovely patterned paper is this collection. I also added some pearls with my Viva pearl pen 501 and a cute small heart gem in the middle of the large flower.

The green card stock is from Papicolor 12x12". I cut the circles with my Coluzzle. The flower is coloured with Stampin' Up markers and I added some glitter on the flowers. The greeting is from American Crafts "Sentiments". The white card stock is embossed with my big shot embossing machine using a Cuttlebug embossing border "With Love". I used a punch to create the nice border.

That's my portion for today. Wishing you all a great Sunday☺
