Some more rest

Needed some more time away from the cutting mat and decided to do some sketching. It led to this:
It's Daphne, the Tomboy!

2011 Honda Crosstour

Another checked off. Just finished off another car!

It's a Honda Crosstour. Made for the customer's husband, "Just Because". This is his favorite car right now (plus he works at a dealership). She said that it would be perfect to frame and hang in his office. Awesome. I hope you all enjoy it too!

My First Portrait!!!

Okay, yeah, I am excited. I wasn't sure if it would come out, but it did!

I got to make a paper cut portrait! It was such a blast. In the process of doing this I discovered new techniques to add charm and was soo very pleased with the out come that I almost didn't want to give up the piece! I shipped it out today, and from the customer's response on the pictures I send her, she is loves it!

I used quality papers and embellishments, along with thinking on my toes to create this finished piece. I hope you all like it!

Just sketching...loosening up. I needed a break from the paper-cutting and made this little thing.

Arrg, Pirates!

So here is my first Halloween custom order. ( I say first, anticipating and hoping for more!)
The Story:
The customer wanted a Halloween card for a friend that always does up his lawn with skeleton pirates every year. He calls it "The Pirates of North Court" (apparently the street he lives). Outside of the card features the jolly and drunk dead pirates, while the inside reads "Happy Halloween".
It was really fun to make, and I got to use a new paper I was itching to try: real wood paper. Yep, paper that is WOOD. It cuts like a dream and is so much fun! The chest and peg leg are made of it, and it rocks!
