The last batch of cards, some are my own design, and some are inspired by or copies from other’s designs. Noted where possible. Inspired by a Dear Paperlicious design: Inspired by a Beachorado design: The original design for this card was by Maile Belles at Simply Stamped (she used cupcakes instead of flowers): Sadly I’ve been […]
Its taken me awhile to put aside time to photograph these cards; so I’ve built up quite a stash – here is what I’ve been making lately:
Color is something that does not come naturally to me. When making cards I find a palette that works and tend to stick with it and variations of it. I love the confident way Dawn McVey uses color – I would never think to use the combinations she does; the schemes she chooses for her cards always […]
I don’t order from Papertrey Ink very often as I live in Canada (I love the products, but their international shipping rates are a little high for me). On occasion, if I know I am going to cross the border I will place an order and have it sent to a shipping company in the […]
I love this frame set, it’s from Basic Grey and it’s called (surprise, surprise) Frame It. I would ordinarily pass a set like this by, but I found in the sale section at a store and couldn’t pass up the deal. I know already that I will get lots of use out of it. The […]
Another great challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch this week! I’ve been seeing a lot of gold incorporated into cards lately and I LIKE IT; I thought I would give it a go too! Here’s my interpretation if this week’s sketch: Stamps: SU Designer Typeset, Gorgeous Grunge Paper: SU Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Gold from stash Ink: SU […]
Here is another patterned card that turned out well. I case’d a card of Dawn McVey’s – though I can no longer find the link to the card, please have a look at her beautiful & inspiring blog. Stamps: SU! Paper: SU! Ink: SU! Accessories: SU!
To make this card, I used this design by Cristina at My Paper Secret; I love the drama! Stamps: Hero Arts, Papertrey InkPaper: SU!Ink: SU!Accessories: SU!
‘Oh, So Lovely’ is my new (to me) favourite stamp set. A girlfriend was selling it, and having borrowed it from her in the past I quickly snapped it up. To make this card I stamped the poppy three times and used a sponge dauber and chalks to color in the flowers; there is a […]
Simply Thanks is the name of the thank-you stamp I used and I think it lends itself well to describing this card. I love this design, it’s pretty without being girly and there is an easy elegance to it – ahhhhh. Stamps: SU Silhouette Sentiments, Simply Thanks Paper: SU Whisper White, Baja Breeze Ink: SU Baja Breeze, Daffodil […]
