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…

CASology #243 – icing

Note: A big thanks to Jacquie for the honourable mention for CASology #242 – text! What a sweet cue card for CASology #243: Here is my card: My first version had yellow icing and a gold wrapper but the Copic marker kinda leaked and things got a bit messy. So purple it is. Then I…

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…

Freshly Made Sketches #279 – floral birthday card

What a neat sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #279: Horizontal layout!!! <3<3<3 Here is my card: I love those vibrant (but somehow kind of pastel) colours of those flowers with the grey. This was my second attempt at this sketch. The first one ended in a glitter spray ink disaster… This one is better, anyway…

CAS(E) This Sketch #211

Here is this week’s sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch: I am not a floral person, but I still loved the look of the reaching stems topped with flowers. So… Balloons! I used complimentary orange and blue, and kept the ink simple with just black. The die cut frame is inlaid back in the paper around…

S.I.P. #88 -anything but a card

This week’s Stamp Ink Paper challenge is a bit of a shake up: I went with a tag: The background is stenciled in yellow ink. I went with other bright colours (almost keeping them all primary). I dig the HOORAY die cut letters filled in with other colours 🙂 This tag is so cheery! As a…

C.T.S. #208

Hey there! I finally had some time to make a card. This one is for CAS(E) This Sketch #208: I had a lot of fun thinking about this one, and here is the card I came up with: I used Art-C stamps for the Happy Birthday sentiment (24667 R6). I used Hero Arts Origami Animals…

CYCI 145 -blue, purple, silver & white

Can You Case It #145 is a colour challenge: I was inspired by some feather patterned paper I had: I used spray ink to get some silver in there, which comes through a bit better here: I have to say I really like how this card turned out. I would be proud to give it…

CTD 426 – grey, red & kraft

The colour combination for Color Throwdown 426 is grey, red and kraft: It’s a versatile and exciting combination. I considered a Valentine’s Day card, but went for something different instead: I hadn’t had a chance to use the bow dies yet, and I wanted to take them for a spin. Pretty cute I think! I…
