Hang In There

By Cards

Hi All,

I’m back with a super fun and simple card. For this card I featured some of the diecuts from the Basic Grey “what’s up” collection. There’s something I absolutely love about aqua’s and reds mixed together. I thought the combination was so bright and playful. I took the banners from the collection and pierced some holes in the corners so that I could thread in some string. I finished it with a few wooden button embellishments and wahla!

Happy Birthday Balloon

By Cards

Hi all,

I don’t know why, but I’ve been on such a hot air balloon kick lately with my cards. I think is my favorite! I’ve been getting into the practice of designing the interior of my cards to coordinate with the exterior and this card is a prime example of how awesome it is when both sides come together!

Here is the outside

And here is the inside!

As nice as it looks in pictures, this card looks so pretty in reality.

Thanks for stopping by! =)

Online Card Class – Day 8

By Cards

Hi all,

Today marks day 8 of the online card class and I”m excited to try the newest technique I have learned. It involves using salt after watercolor/distressing. I used it on the tricolored piece of watercolor paper on my card and am intriqued by the results. I do like the effect, however, I think if I had used darker colors it would have been more dramatic. Anyhow, I think it’s an awesome technique and will keep it in mind for future cards.

Here is my card for day 8
