Thinking of You-Daisy Card (the original)

So a few weeks ago I posted a daisies easel card, in that post I mention that I made a card that I couldn’t post because my friend hadn’t received it yet and I didn’t want to give away the surprise but I posted a different card that was inspired by the original card that a different friend of mine wanted for a friend of hers. Well this is the original card, lol that was not confusing at all ๐Ÿ™„

“Pink Black-Eyed Susan” ๐ŸŒบ Birthday card

Well, I have another fun technique today, Believe it or not, the stamp used for this card is a silhouette stamp, not a lined detail stamp. It was pretty easy to add the colour and a little bit of detail to make these flowers look like they were hand painted as opposed to stamped. This is a technique that I learned quite a few years ago when I used to be a Stampin’ UP demonstrator. It gives a much different look to stamps you may already have in your stash.

“the Blues” Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are not my favourite to make, but I try to have a few in my box to have on hand when needed. To make this card I used the “Ghosting” technique (no pun intended). This technique gives a soft image (see the white flowers) and depending on the colours or effect you are looking for you can decide on whether you only want a subtle 2toned effect or if you want to add another colour (see darker blue flowers) to add more contrast.

My Naughty Valentine

Sooo this card started off as a joke, It’s a little on the corny naughty side so if you are easily offended this card may not be for you. So a friend and I were tossing around ideas for a card for me to make for her to give her boyfriend for Valentines day, well we got searching on google and came across a cartoon version of this card (isn’t Google great, card will be posted at the end of the post) well we both laughed because her boyfriend is a carpenter, and she thought he’d think it’s funny so away I went to my paper room. You can’t tell in the photo but this is an interactive card, the hammer actually swings up and down.

I โค๏ธ U

Valentines is only a few days away so I thought I would post another Valentine from my card box. I wish I could take full credit for this card but I got the original idea from a card challenge I was a part of back in 2010 ๐Ÿ˜ณ. It was called a Featured Stamper challenge from Stampin Connection, and the challenge was to look through the featured stampers posts, find something to use as an inspiration and share what we came up with. Lisa Young was the featured artist and I really liked how she cut the petals of the flower to make a heart she said she got the flower idea from a craft magazine. The colours and embossing were how I changed it up to make it my own.

Double Embossed Valentine

What’s black, and white and red all over……. ๐Ÿค” this fun Valentines Day card. It may be hard to see in the photo but the black and white sections of this card are not made with patterned paperย  ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I know, shocker right. I really like how the red pop against the black and white, but if I had to do this card over again I would use a wider red ribbon to add a little more pop.

Never Ending Love card ๐Ÿ’ž

So I was going through my previously made Valentine cards when I came across this gem, apparently, I shouldn’t post the new cards that I am currently making as they are all part of valentines gifts and I don’t want to ruin the surprise ๐Ÿ˜Š This card is what is called a “Neverending Card”, it is an origami style of card that as you open one layer it brings you to the next layer, when you open that layer in brings you to a third layer, when you open the third layer it brings you to a fourth layer, when you open the fourth layer it brings you to the first layer which starts the whole thing over and can be done continuously which is why it is called a Neverending Card, this one just happens to be a Valentines card ๐Ÿ’

Soooo here goes let me know what you think.

“Thinking of You” Daisy Card

So this card came about because I made a different card….. it’s funny how one thing leads to another. I made a fairly similar card a couple weeks back for a friend that I thought might need a little pick me up, and I showed it to another friend. This friend decided that she also has a friend that might need a little pick me up and asked if I could make her one as well. Well, I’m pretty sure my first friend hasn’t gotten hers yet so I don’t want to post her card online yet and I don’t think my friend’s friend follows my blog sooooo I decided to post hers first. LOL, are you able to follow ๐Ÿ™‚ anyway here goes?
