I thought I would share some cards I have made recently.
A get well card for a swimming friend. I love how the Brocade Blue Designer Series Paper looks like a pool bottom! The stamp set is from Pun Fun. I watercolored with Neutrals Watercolor Crayons and used the Color Spritzer tool with Brocade Blue marker to make the speckled background.
A thank you card that I made for the WICKED demo challenge on SCS. This uses "faux snow", made by rolling up scrap cardstock and grating with a cheese grater. Who would have thought? It actually came out very soft and touchable! The tutorial is on Jackie Topa's website.
Stamps: Pun Fun; Paper: Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Whisper White scrap, Close to Cocoa DSP (currently available on Clearance Rack); Ink: Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Oval punch, Aquapainter, Watercolor Crayons, Cheese Grater, CC Grosgrain ribbon, Texturz Background I, Big Shot, Sewing machine.
A birthday card for mountain biking fans. Stamps: Hit the Road; Paper: Dusty Durango, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, More Mustard, Very Vanilla; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel; Accessories: Sponge, Aquapainter, Earth Elements Watercolor Crayons, Ribbon, Texturz Background I, Big Shot.
And a birthday card experiment for stampin' buddy Michele, her website and fab work here. It is a pop-up card adapted from a Mother's Day card in Stampin' Up's Stampin' Success magazine. Did I ever mention that if you too sign up to be a demo, you can get this magazine every month full of great ideas and stampin' techniques?
Here it is opening up.
And a little farther open.
Here is a close up of the microbeads I used on the inside flower.
