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

Image
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...

Two Cards - Anniversary & Congrats

Image
The two cards I'm sharing today were very quick to make and in both these cards I have used techniques that I have learnt by watching Jennifer McGuire's tutorials....in the anniversary cards with the cosmos flowers I did the fast watercolouring using the inpad directly on the image and for the congrats card I created the glazed distress oxide background using Distress Oxide inks and Distress Glaze on a glossy cardstock piece..

Birthday Card For Time Out Challenge #110

Image
The card I'm sharing today is my entry for Time Out Challenge #110....and I would also like to share that I received honours in Time Out Challenge #109 which was announced yesterday while I was preparing this card for the current challenge....how great was that? :)
