we will miss you

This card was requested by my mother for a coworker who was moving on to a new place. Not knowing the recipient personally made it a bit of a challenge. Primary colours and black & white felt safe. The recipient was a guy so that also influenced my decisions. I kinda like how it turned…

Fusion – Easter

The Fusion card challenge theme is Easter, but I chose to go with just the sketch… …and I flipped it horizontally: I needed a birthday card, and went for it. I used a We R Memory Keepers journaling card from a big set of 4×6 and 3×4 cards. I love the set and wish I…

Stamp Ink Paper #93

It’s all about flowers for Stamp Ink Paper #93: I needed to make some Mother’s Day cards so I knocked one out for this challenge: Not much to say here 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)

retirement card – GONE FISHING

My grandmother requested a retirement card for a family friend, and she wanted it to have a fishing theme. Just like the dinosaurs in the previous post, I had to go source some supplies. These requests have really highlighted how limited my stash is 😦 Anyway, on to the card… I made the sign with…

dinosaur cards

Here are some dinosaur cards I made recently: My favourite part of this card was how the embossed and inked panel turned out. Kinda like dino skin, huh? Not only was it his birthday recently but the boy also got a new baby brother. I guess cause he’s only 4 maybe a card might make…

CAS(E) This Sketch #215

Here is the super cute sketch for CAS(E) This Sketch #215: Here is what I came up with: I flipped the main image upside down because I was inspired by the idea of falling leaves. I had some fabric leaves and the natural colour plays off the kraft card stock. The stamp is from a…

CASology #240 – foliage

CASology #240 wants us to make like a tree… and leave! Here is what I came up with: I used the Endless embossing folder from Couture Creations and raised the panel with adhesive dots. I also raised the flag that I stamped the sentiment on. I love the all white with just a couple touches…

Fusion – scrambled letters

I am always excited to participate in the Fusion card challenge. This one is no exception: Here is my card: I used the elements of the letters, the colours and the touch of wood. The horizontal stripes became vertical because that was the only striped embossing folder I had 🙂 I love the way the…

Color Throwdown #433

It’s cornflower blue, green and white for Color Throwdown #433: Luckily, I had just picked up some blue paper! I die cut and then embossed the front panel. There is also a white embossed panel at the very back there, with the edges inked. I had some Hampton Art ink that matched the blue pretty…

Freshly Made Sketches #278

It’s a fun sketch this week for Freshly Made Sketches #278: Here is my card: I have some peach geometric paper behind the embossed blue panel. The enamel dots are also peach, and the brad attaching the scissors is a warm brass colour to play off the peach. I had been trying to figure out…

Freshly Made Sketches #277

Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #277: I for some reason like things grouped to the left, so I loved this sketch 🙂 Here is what I made:   I can never get enough hexagons/honeycomb. Here I have embossed my card and used two different papers with a honeycomb pattern. I somehow got…
