School is in session over at MFT and I wanted to join in! I’m a few days behind but still have time to play along. Day 1 is ‘visual triangle’, which is a great concept for making striking clean and simple designs. I decided to create a floral card.
Today I’m sharing my creations for the second week of Camp Create. Like last time I seem to have left getting them done quite late… I struggled a little bit with mojo for these, which is probably at least somewhat my own fault. (Some of it though is probably because I’ve been unwell this week.) … More Camp Create – 5 Cards
Let’s talk about mirror card. I like mirror card. It can be fun to create with. But it can also be an absolute nightmare to photograph. Like on this card, for example. I could not get a picture that didn’t have the mirror card shining unnecessarily brightly and making everything else seem too dark. Sigh. … More WWC208 – Charlotte’s “All About Occasions” Challenge
We’re halfway through our floral themed challenge over at the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, which means there’s still a little while left to play along for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from our fabulous sponsor Newton’s Nook Designs.
It’s my second challenge as a member of The Male Room Design Team and our theme this time is paper piecing. It’s a technique I’ve played with a few times, and I always seem to end up making it fiddlier than it needs to be. There are two different approaches to paper piecing, and I … More Paper Pieced Elephant – TMR 73
I enjoy making scene cards. Often when I make them they have a fair bit of dimension to them, as the different layers are popped up on top of each other. Today I took a different approach. Despite the appearance of dimension this card is completely flat, all thanks to the inlay die cutting technique.
Here is another card I made with the Scrapping For Less Mermaids and Pirates card kit, which was the June Flavor of the Month. This one has actually been sitting on my table for several weeks waiting to be finished. I finally worked out how I wanted to finish it, and got that done today.
This isn’t the card I was planning on making today. I was meant to make something using some embossing paste that I made yesterday, but that will have to wait for another day because this idea came to me and I just had to run with it. I’ve had this fairy die for as long … More Sparkly Fairy Shaker
A few weeks ago I offered to make a bunch of thank you cards as a wedding gift for a family member. The idea being that they can then use the thank you cards to send out to people who give them wedding presents. I’ve been mulling over some ideas for a while, and finally … More Pop-Up Butterfly Thanks
I feel like it’s been a long time since I last made a shaker card. Checking through my archives though it looks like I made one last month, which is actually not that long ago… In any case, the idea I had for this card seemed perfect for a shaker, so I went ahead and … More Forever Shaker
