Distress Ink

Recently a friend taught a class with distress inks and this was a piece that was left from the class.  A black card base, a couple of punches and this is the end result.  Enjoy!

Happy 29th

Bad pictures again :( can get it to focus. The idea for my card to create a little note pad to hand write the birthday wish Although I don't like my hand writing that was the idea behind the note pad, so I made it.  Stamped a series of candles in three of the colors in the paper.  The colors are a little brighter than in the picture and what I had in mind was not the end result.  Enjoy!

Wedding Cheers

I sure enjoy seeing how everyone uses the sketches, so many creations!  I used a die from Simon Says.  I had to cut and paste in order for it to be noticeable, not an easy job and time consuming.  Enjoy!

Baby Girl

Had to rush to make to it before deadline at Retro Sketches and to make it worse, the light was not cooperating and the picture is not clear. Clear pictures for me is a problem, any suggestions? My daughter needs a baby girl card and I think this is very girly.  Used an old pack from SU, the colors seemed appropriate and added some mini green diamonds for shine. Enjoy!

I find white to be so crispy for background, color just pops!  I cut 6 birthdays and glued them together to raise it a bit.  Again washi tapes, and this new pack with chevrons in rainbow colors were used to create the multicolor base.  Enjoy!

Dies and Washi Tapes

In keeping with the theme of the last workshop "washi tapes", I chose the sketch and die challenge to create this card.  Dies can really add dimension to a card and allow your imagination to fly.  Washi tapes can make it easy to add layers of colors and patterns without having to cut.  It can be addicting, so many to choose from but lots of fun to work with.  Enjoy!

Happy Butterfly

I am loving this die set from Technique Tuesday, no need to use wax paper or shim, it cuts so nicely!!!  See the video by Shelley.  The sketch fit the die set perfect.  Enjoy!

Washi Tapes

Getting together with "las muchachas" to use up the growing basket of washi tapes.  The idea came from this card and the sketch from Freshly Made.  I used wahi tapes, of course, adhered to a white piece of CS and a die to cut the candles.  Not much to it but a cute bday card.  Enjoy!
