Happy Birthday 2 U!

By Cards

Hi all,

How about a dimensional card today? This card is loaded with layers and textures. I wanted to play up the stamp and create a visual impact by using negative space for the stamp. I’ll admit there were many failed attempts on this card. For those of you that are crafters – DO NOT use glossy accents on images colored with stamp markers until those markers are absolutely 100% dry. I speak from experience (SO MANY SMUDGES!).

Hi All,

I found a great sentiment stamp that came with my Simon Says Stamp card kit for January 2013 that worked great for the circle. Here is the finished product.

You're Very Special

2.14 Geometric Shapes – Valentine’s Day Series

Hi all,

Today is day 3 of the Valentine’s day card series. For today’s card I wanted to try using some geometric shapes to create the main focal area. I also wanted to test out a few of my circle cutting tools to create these shapes. I used a textured cardstock as the base and added the shapes cut from a My Minds Eye paper stack. I also some felt embellishment from American Crafts and Thickers.
