Jedi Mind Trick

I make cards.  I love to make cards.  It is so relaxing to craft.  My problem is that I am never on time to send those things out.  Especially to my brother.  We have a long standing joke about it.
So sad....   :-)
 This is a digi stamp from Stamp and Create's Pray for Luke line.  (If you haven't heard about this story please go to www.prayforluke.com.)  100% of proceeds go to Luke's family.  I bought the whole set - the Little Luke digi and the Dragon Collection by Dustin Pike.
This particular dragon is called Hero2 from the Dragon Collection.  To me he is, of course, a Jedi!  I printed him on watercolor paper, heated the image to set it and colored it with Twinkling H2Os.  Base: PTI Orange Zest.  Circle star DP: DCWV All Boy.  Orange DP:  Making Memories Just Chillin'.  Yellow matte: scraps.  Buttons: PTI New Leaf.  Twine: The Twinery Mandarin.
 The sentiment I typed up on Word and printed.  You can't tell but the lightsaber has glossy effects on it to make it stand out.  I also sewed over the orange DP which qualifies this card for Stamp and Create's August Challenge: Stitch it up.  I am also entering the challenge on Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes.
 The following card is almost the same layout and paper.  Each time I make a card, I have been making some extra ones for Operation Write Home.  I do not get to craft as much as I want but I have always wanted to make some cards for our brave men and women serving our country.

Gracias for hanging out with me!


  1. Great cards. I really like the stitching detail and the colour palette. The dragon is beautiflly painted. Fun sentiment, too. Thanks for sharing it with us at Craft Your Passion. I really enjoyed this post and project.
