Jay Gee’s Nook Challenge #6

by Meghan Rowe on April 1, 2011, one comment

I love the inspiration picture Jay Gee at Jay Gee’s Nook used for Challenge #6. When making cards, these are colors that I am most often drawn to and the images invoke in me peace and calm.  I like the femininity of this little card and even though the pink is extremely girly, there are many neutral touches […]

To make the card below I cased a design showcased in the March edition of Stampin’ Success (SU’s monthly magazine for demonstrators). I love, love, love this card, and in fact I made a whole bunch – they will be included as inspiration/thank-you cards with my customers orders from a recent workshop. Stamps: SU Butterfly Prints […]

This was my first attempt to use thread and button together. I like the result but can see that I need some practice – maybe thicker thread(?). In addition to using this picture for this post, it was also the inspiration for today’s card. Paper: SU Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Night of Navy Accessories: SU Linen Thread, Button from Stash

In My Nest

I got the idea for tonight’s card from one of my daughter’s board books; ‘In My Nest’ by Sara Gillingham and Lorena Siminovich. It is as much a pleasure to read as it is to look at the artwork and use of color. This card is a little more detailed and time consuming than I […]
