new baby card trio

I made a few cards to congratulate new parents. They turned out kinda cute so I wanted to share them with you. I didn’t realise how crooked this was… Cute and simple, like a baby 😀 The pink and blue ones are still available here. Thanks for stopping by!

Fusion challenge – pretty in pink

Pink is the theme for this Fusion Card Challenge: I used the pink element and the sketch. Here is what I made: It’s pink and super girly! I embossed the patterned paper and ran a bit of ink on the raised flowers an birds. The speech bubble and heart are chipboard. I used the same…

S.I.P. 80 – maker’s choice

Challenge 80 at Stamp Ink Paper is… Too much freedom? I have always been one to colour inside the lines, using the conventional colours so that the result is “correct”. Slowly, I am trying to experiment and push my boundaries to make things that are a little more exciting. This card… is not one of…

CYCI 121 -purple bird

The Can You Case It challenge this week is a colour challenge: My card for this week did not turn out how I first imagined when I was thinking about it, but I can live with how it turned out 🙂 The “mustard” spray ink turned out a bit darker than I would like but…

S.I.P. challenge 38 – Smile, friend.

The challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week was indeed a challenge! I had a hard time finding cohesive elements for this card and I cursed myself for always buying paper in the same colours! I got to break out the Copics that I was so stoked to pick up when I was in…

Brighter Days greeting card

I made this today for the most recent Stamper’s Sampler colour challenge (the colour is olive). The edges are inked in olive and the sentiment on the front is embossed with a green powder. I feel the elements are a bit too disparate, there is no feeling of wholeness among them. But there it is….

Hallowe’en owl card

Hallowe’en is my favourite ‘holiday’ and I have a lot of Hallowe’en-themed supplies so get ready for more creepy posts! I made some bird cards earlier that I was going to send in for a magazine call for submissions, but I kept them instead. Two more bird ones posted soon. USED: patterned paper, stamp, embossing…
