Card Designs

This weekend I had to create a make and take for the weekend crop. I ended up making a teabag folded flower and putting it on a card. As always, some croppers participated and some did not. The ones who made it, loved the card and the technique. The second card is from Taylor's Cupcake Challenge. Her sketch challenge inspired me to create this bright birthday card. The paper is from last summer and I didn't check the name before I started. The stamp is from Denami. I used stickles to color in the flames and the white icing. The green icing is over colored with a glitter pen to add just a little sparkle. I would love to get a card that is this bright and cheery. Have a great weekend.

Bright and Cheery

This spring's new paper lines are so bright and cheery, I just had to make something fun. My latest class uses these butterfly papers from Imaginesce and the felt die cuts from Kaiser. The paper mache box is from Melissa Frances and it comes with an accordian book. However, I cut the accordian book apart and made tag shaped pages for this particular project. I used my Spellbinder rectangular scallops for the frame borders. I think this is a fun way to celebrate spring. I have found that the lighting my studio space is not a very good way to photograph my projects. These photos were taken at Live.Love.Scrap and the bright white background and overhead lighting really made a difference in the quality of the photos. I have been very remiss in my blogging duties. My laptop has been down and I'm at the mercy of my DH's computer. I miss not being able to catch up on my blog entries or my browsing of my favorite blogs. I'll post more this weekend and show you all my winning from the Daisy D's contest. I WON FIRST PLACE!!! My monkey chair captured their eyes and won me some great loot from Daisy D's.

Until next time....have a great day.
