wedding cards summer 2017

Marriage! People do it, and they often appreciate cards to acknowledge the occasion. Here are some such cards: I love those vellum hearts. I would probably put it on everything I make. (The above card is available here). This one was made to match the colours of the invitation, light yellow and a wine colour….

baby boy bling

My wonderful friend had a baby boy back in May and of course that is cause for celebration. I admit I had picked out the main focal point for the card months in advance. Here’s why… Could you have passed up that soother? I knew it would be perfect, and it was! (I should have…

new home card w Simple Stories printables

Just a quick card to share with you today… Back in May Simple Stories celebrated National Scrapbook Day with these awesome printables in their blog. I LOVE Simple Stories and couldn’t wait to use them. Luckily I had a friend who had moved in to a new place, so I had a great chance to…

cupcake birthday card with icing

I picked up some Faber-Castell whipped spackle a while ago and kind of forgot about it. But one day I needed to make a birthday card and inspiration struck while contemplating a cupcake stamp. I like the numbered paper. I almost didn’t use it because some people don’t like to really bring attention to the…

CASology #249 – warm

CASology #249‘s cue card was particularly inspiring: Here is where I went with it: I used a punch for the circle in the middle (forgetting I had just bought circle dies… :D). Some extra sprays of yellow/orange spray ink made it darker and warmer, but maybe a bit too dark cause the sun stamp needed…

CASology #246 – season

Season is the cue card for CASology #246: Can you guess the season I chose? haha If other Vancouverites saw this card, they would throw it right in the trash, if they could find a bin that hadn’t floated away or been lost to the muddy ground.   I thought some glitter to the cloud…

UPDATE: 01 May 2017 – Design Team Pick (thank you!) It’s clean and simple wedding for Stamp Ink Paper #96: Here is my card:   I stenciled some gold dots then added some cute paper butterfly embellishments. I tried to get a fading effect with the dots, but I need some practice 🙂 Thanks for…

Stamp Ink Paper #95 – sketch

Check out this offset sketch for Stamp Ink Paper #95: Here is my take on the sketch: It’s a pink and feminine Mother’s Day card embellished more than my cards usually are. I am trying to make sure I use what I have (so I can buy some new stuff!). I’ve got two different pink…
