C.T.D.393 – floral notes

The challenge at Color Throwdown this week is great! What a combination: I made a point of using pieces I had already prepped but had not yet used so my card is very simple: The background panel is from a Stampington magazine, but I did not note the artist before I used it. Sorry 😦…

S.I.P. 48 – Sing and Rejoice

The colour challenge at Stamp Ink Paper is very pretty this week: I have had a stack of fortune cookie fortunes just waiting to be put on cards, and this one needed a final touch so it got one: Thanks for stopping by! This card is available here.

APWP 73 – boho floral

The Always Playing With Paper challenge this week is an inspiration one: I went with the colours as opposed to the items: I don’t know if it was the old stamps or the ink and paper combination, but I kind of like how smokey the flowers turned out. Thanks for stopping by! This card is…

CYCI 120 – sketch

It’s a deceptively simple sketch challenge at Can You Case It this week: All of the entries are wonderful takes on what may seem a simple sketch, but can be quite difficult to pull together. Here was my attempt at it (haha!): This week I was determined to use up pieces I had already set…

A.P.W.P. #67 sketch challenge

The challenge over at Always Playing With Paper this week is a sketch challenge: I needed to make a special birthday card and this is the sketch I chose to use for it. I used pink and gold Gelatos for the background, using a dauber and stencil for the stars. I used Fiskars birthday bash clear…

CYCI #111 – Totally Awesome

The Can You Case It challenge #111 is a colour challenge – pick any three. I chose neon blue, neon orange and neon pink. Black and white are my neutrals. I had these bold cassette stickers that I wanted to use and I decided to go with an 80s theme (’cause I love the 80s!)….

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…

You Make Me Happy greeting card

I dig this card. As much as I like this aesthetic, I had never really made anything with that romantic Victorian feel. I am glad I did! And who doesn’t love a cute sparkly bow?   For sale here

love greeting cards 2016 – last batch!

These are the last ones I had to make this year. The more I make, the more experience I get and the more knowledge I gain to make a card come together. Of course they are not going to be perfect, but if they were there would be nothing to strive for the next time!…

love greeting cards 2016 – assorted

These are thankfully a bit more elaborate than the ones I made way back at the beginning of January. They have a more romantic feel to them, thanks mostly to the fancy embellishments I’m sure 🙂

Stamp Ink Paper challenge #34 – love

Here is what I came up with for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge #34 (love theme). I loved using my new Valentine’s Day materials I got this year!  

love greeting cards 2016 – minis!

Here are some mini cards I did, gift tag size. I suppose they could go with a bottle of wine for a friend, or a hunk of metal and jewels for that special someone ? 😉 They were fun to make because although the small size was a bit limiting they felt so complete with…
