Happy Birthday Dave!

Wow, it’s been a month since I’ve posted anything! I’m so sorry I’ve been away, but holidays, man. It sucked the life out of me. Hope everyone else had a well rested year end!

For the first card of the year I’ve made a Birthday Card for my significant other’s friend Dave.

For the longest time I’ve had a bunch of Pure Innocence stamps that are just sooo darn cute, never had a chance to use it since I’ve always been on Design Teams and using sponsor images. This time was different! Fun!

Especially also because MFT is now hosting their own challenge blog!! So for the first time I’m entering my card in their challenges. You bet there will be many more to come! This is the sketch I’ve used for my card!

And here is my card using the PI Policeman Stamps. I’ve also used the By the Numbers die set. The “Celebrate” sentiment is also for MFT, it was a bonus stamp set I got for spending over $60 so unfortunately it did not come with any packaging. The background embossing folder is a very old set I had from Provocraft.

FFF: Watercolor Paint Attempt #1

This is my very first attempt on water coloring and boy, I’m pretty amazed with the turnout!! As you’re reading this I’m already on my second attempt with the water color paint! On top of the paint I also used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to add a pearl effect.  Unfortunately the glimmer cannot really be seen in the photos.  I really tried!!

I’ve used the sentiment from The Greeting Farm Lucky Bunnies set.  The Ribbon Banner Die is from My Favorite Things, Scalloped Rectangles is from Spellbinders and lastly the design papers are from My Mind’s Eye. Oh! And gems are from Want 2 Scrap!

I found that stamping the sentiment wasn’t good enough after water coloring and misting, so I used clear embossing powder to make the sentiment pop! Really darkens the black ink making it stand out.

Hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did!

Dear Barb..

One of my dear friend’s mother recently passed away, I made a card to circulate around the office.

I really wanted to keep it simple so I used the following sketch:
