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...

Fairy Birthday Wishes For Scrapbook Boutique June Challenge

Image
This month's challenge moodboard at Scrapbook Boutique is all about spots and dots...I was interested in creating something really colourful but I didn't get good results so I pulled out my polka dot turn about stamp and created the black and white dotty background for my card....

XOXO - Altenew Folksy Florals

Today I'm sharing a card with beautiful flowers in soft colours....or at least softer colours than the bright ones I usually go for..I was very conscious of my colour choices for this one and kept the stencilled background quite light as well....

Big Hugs - Pivot Pop Up Card

Image
Interactive cards take more time to create, but the results are almost always definitely worth the effort..I wanted to try making a pivot pop up card but make it simple rather than adding too many elements to it and make it over the top time consuming kind...well, it can be done....and here's is my card..

New Home Congrats Card

So this is what I do when I get an idea for a card using a particular stamp set but I can't get enough time to get started on that card immediately...I scribble the idea onto a small sticky note or a piece of paper and slip it inside the stamp packaging so that the next time I pull that stamp set out, I already have at least one idea for using it...

An Inside Shadow Box Christmas Card for Time Out Challenge #111

Image
Recently Jennifer McGuire shared one of the easiest way to create an inside shadow box card and I have tried it out to create this Christmas card for Time Out Challenge #111 where the theme is 'Holidays'....there was an optional twist of a one layer card, which I obviously haven't applied to my card..

G'Day Mate

As I was making the background for this card, I wasn't sure it would work with the images and my layout...but once I die cut the front panel and added a green dotty paper behind it, it all seemed to work somehow...and I'm still shaking my head as I have no idea what exactly made things work here...!!

Updated Post - Altenew June Inspiration Challenge

Image
Hello...I'm sharing a new picture of my card that I had shared earlier....I wasn't able to get a better picture that day, so I tried again....and the colours in today's picture turned out much closer to the actual colours on my card..

-Original Post-
I have tried so hard to click a better picture of my card so I could share the actual colour of the Ranunculus flower on my card, but it keeps showing as a yellowish colour when in fact it's a green colour quite similar to the one in the inspiration photo....

Two Small Shaped Cards

Image
I like to create shaped cards every once in a while....the last time I made one, it was a heart shaped card for a challenge and I wanted to create a few more...they were pretty quick to make so I made two while I was at it...
