Birthday Magnolias

Image
I have become such a big fan of the Distress Blending Brushes now...no matter how much I tried with my ink blending, I would always put on too much ink on paper and never get the soft and light results that I really wanted at times...today's card has layered stamped from Clearly Besotted stamps with a light Distress Ink background using the blending brush..

Just For You

Image
I'm sharing a clean and simple card today....usually I get stressed out with these kind of cards as I end up with the clean area of my card left 'not so clean'...but I was quite happy this one stayed clean or else I would have had to go all out with embellishments like I usually do...ha ha..

Lawn Fawn Birthday Fairies

I really wish that my camera could capture the sparkly starry background of my card...it glitters beautifully and adds so much to the fairy theme of my card...

Many Thanks

Image
I had started today's card with an intention to create a bit of depth on my stamped panel simply by adding 2nd generation stamping as I have seen Jennifer McGuire do in many of her cards and tutorials...but as you can see, it didn't work out for me...but I still did manage to create a lovely card in the end...

Warm Wishes - Time Out Challenge #112

Image
The theme for challenge #112 at Time Out Challenges is 'warm'...and I think viewing the NYE fireworks to ring in the new year gives us a nice warm and happy feeling...and a hope of great things in the coming year...we have always gone out to view the fireworks and this last time we took the dog along too...he didn't care about the fireworks but loved being with us..!!

Reveal Wheel Birthday Card

Image
Lawn Fawn has done it again...this reveal wheel card was so easy to make with their reveal wheel dies and the coordinating sentiments and dies to go with them...everything comes together so easily and quickly and the end result is perfect...here are a few video tutorials that are helpful in understanding how to put the reveal wheel together -  Reveal Wheel 3 ways by Nichol Sphor, Reveal Wheel by Carissa Wiley and Reveal Wheel card Design by Jennifer McGuire...

Two Quick Cards - Birthday & Friendship

Image
There isn't anything common between the two cards I'm sharing today except that they were both pretty quick to make...every now and then I do like to make simple and quick cards like these ones...the first one is a funny cat birthday card - hilarious actually, that cat has a priceless expression on it's face don't you think?....and for my second card I tried out the texture paste again...

Alcohol Ink Background Card

Image
I seem to get carried away while playing with Alcohol inks and keep forgetting not to cover the whole panel with the ink so there is some blank space on the panel...it was very hard to come up with a design for this background so I decided to keep it simple and just added a large gold die cut and and a heat embossed sentiment...
