Cards for Easter

Someone ordered 10 Easter cards! Honestly, I was a bit stressed...'cause I was running low on supplies, low on mojo (I had just completed a big order the previous day) and basically had no ideas whatsoever!!!

I love love love online galleries!!! I found a few card sketches I liked...and set to work. LOL Apparently stress makes my mojo flow!!! Who knew!! :p At the end of the day, I had a whole set of cards that I loved. You might not to able to tell, but I managed to use up scraps at the same time!!! I'm totally happy with how these turned out! :) TFL

Cuttlebug Borders

On a recent trip to the states, I told my mom to keep her eyes open for some cuttlebug borders. She brought me home this set...ORGANIC FLOURISH BORDER SET


LOL I'll admit, in the beginning I was a little clueless as to how to incorporate them into my cards, but after a few tries, I've come up with some great ideas! It's amazing what a little bling can do to make everything look even better (the borders look great to start off with). Here's a quick look as one of my cards using one of the folders from this set.


I so have to get a cuttlebug!!! Next trip to the city!!! TFL :)

Old Stamps, New Technique

 Oh yeah!!! The computer is up and running...and I have so much to show off!!! :p

I won a clear stamp set a year or so ago. Basically it was the same image -- one stamped the outline only, and the second stamped the whole image. I've used it a few times, but I was never really impressed. Yesterday I saw a card in a gallery using a similar stamp set...and I set out to try the technique. It's so simple, but it looks amazing! :) I used two different colours (recommended), and stamped first the outline and then the whole image -- kind of on top of each other. Let it dry...and your stamped paper is ready to use!!! And it looks really cool!!!

Here's a card I made using the new technique.


I'll be reaching for this stamp set a whole lot more in the future! TFL :)

Hi there my faithful followers. :D I know, I've been lacking at updating my blog. Our computer crashed...so now I'm waiting for the new one to arrive. Until then I can't upload any pictures and stuff...so you'll just have to be patient to see my new projects. :)
