The theme of today’s blog post wasn’t intentional. I didn’t exactly expect to mess up one of my cards, let alone both. But I did, and then I fixed them, so that seemed like a linking theme to discuss for them.
After yesterday’s multitude of patterned paper Christmas cards I thought today I’d go with something more clean and simple. Actually, I was working on another batch of patterned paper cards, but knew I wouldn’t be able to get the batch finished and photographed in time to share today. So this is what I came up … More CAS Reindeer | Christmas Card
We’re half way through this month’s challenge at Christmas Craft Creations. If you haven’t encountered our challenge before, it’s a month challenge all about Christmas creations (as the name suggests!) with different themes each month. This month, as it is Christmas in July, we decided to go with an anything goes theme, so any projects … More Christmas Craft Creations | Christmas Cards | Anything Goes
We’re in the birthday spirit at Cupcake Inspirations this fortnight, with our theme being Balloons. Although that doesn’t mean you have to make a birthday card – you could use balloons for a new baby, a wedding, whatever you prefer! As long as there are balloons as a feature on your project, you can join … More CIC 524 | Birthday Hedgehog | Balloons
The title says there’s a video, and there is, but it only shows the process for one card. I didn’t think I’d do a video today because I’m still recovering from a respiratory infection and I didn’t think trying to do a voice-over would be wise. Too much coughing and sniffling, for that. But my … More One Stamp Two Ways | Video
I don’t think I’ve ever made an inchie card before. A quick search of my blog doesn’t bring up any results for the word. As much as I enjoy clean and simple designs, the amount of white space required for a card that only has a square inch of decoration is a bit intimidating! This … More Reindeer Twinchie | CAS Card
A while ago I made this card (which also has a video). I loved it, it had a good reception on social media, and I’ve been wanting to revisit the concept. I don’t have a snowflake die large enough to exactly copy it, but I came across a decently sized one when going through old … More Snowflakes | Mixed Media Card
I have two cards to share with you today. They’re quite different from eachother, but both share one feature – a complete lack of stamping!
I have cards planned for pretty much every day this month. Do I have them made yet? No. Do I at least make them with plenty of time to spare on the day I want them to be going live? Also no. I just got finished with making and photographing this one, and it is … More Beach Day | CAS Card
I really enjoy colouring. But sometimes it’s nice to have other ways to use our stamps. For today’s card instead of colouring I did paper piecing! Actually, there was still a little colouring because I added some shading… But for the most part, the colour all comes from using various snippets of patterned paper.
