Frame Card


I don't think I have never cut it so close to the deadline... with 10 mins to spare I have entered the card to Cheery Lynn challenge.
I am combining 2 challenges ideas. Just Rite challenge for spring and Cheery Lynn for a shaped card.

When I think of spring I feel flowers and feeling of lightness.

The card is created using Spellbinders 5x7 die. I have bought some time ago but haven't use it.
I have embossed the panel and added flower. This was relatively easy card to make. There are so many tutorials on how to make a shaped  card on You Tube.

I've used Tim Holtz embossing folder but I used with defuser because I didn't want the whole panel to be embossed.

I used Cherry Lynn dies for flowers and doily. I love that doily... so pretty.

I've used JustRite stamps for the sentiment.

I am still not sure about this bow on the top. I have put it on and then taken off probably about 100 times.

At the end I decided to leave it.

What do you think?

Enjoy the Ride


Here is my easy card using The Shabby Tea Room sketch:

It is one of the fastest card I have made. I used Hero Art & Stampendious stamps for the bicycles. I have created background paper using the stamps. For the sentiment I used Tim Holtz.
I've added glossy accent to bicycle tires. I was going to vintagy feel. I think it worked.d

Little Birdy


This is my last card to experiment with backgrounds.

Here is the card:
I have started with bird JustRite background. The original plan was to use that background as embossing but I changed my mind after coloring the bird with Copics. I am having fun with this markers. I just keep on adding different colors to my image.
I have used Winded Vintage stamp set to create the background on the card.

I put the words on my fiskars stamping block ( I love that thing... helps me to stamp straight and because of the foam legs allows me to get the stamp into the right position). I was able to create 2 lines out of the words that come in the stamp set. I used brilliance inks ( pink & skyblue) to create the background.
I've stamped and fussy cut the label. I thought it would go perfectly with leaves. I added more leaves out of my stash around the image to draw more attention to it.
I have poped the image on pop-ups, added a bit of lace and that's it.

Touch of Pink-- Yeey I Won Cheery Lynn Challenge


Ladies thank you so much for all your kind comments on my blog, I truly appreciate it ( thank you Shona for your motivation and being my true blue follower. I wish you lived closed...  :)

This card was an interesting card to make. It sort of shabby chic meets grunge.

Here is how the card made:

There are a lot of different techniques in this card. I started from using JR background stamp...(you can't actually see it anymore because of all the texture over it).
I've used embossing paste on the sides first to add texture. I have created flowers using build a flower Cherry Lynn dies and Cherry Lynn flourishes. Used the oval die by Cherry Lynn for additional texture. I inked the flowers and flourishes. I did a faux stitching.

When I decided to pull the card together, I was so happy that I didn't add the banner as of yet. Because the card just looked too pink to me, this is when I started really to add ..... well everything I could think of.

I have used wood grain stamp to add texture with embossing paste. Once it dried I added ranger espresso acrylic paint on the wooden grain and around the die cut. Then it looked too dark to me so I started lifting it off with water and added write acrylic paint.

I added Viva pearls to add movement to card. I used JR gratitude stamp set for a sentiment. I thought the font was perfect. I have created banner and added faux stitching.

At that point I decided to stop adding things to card.

What do you think???

Peek a Boo


I was trying to do something different with this card.

Here is how it turned out:

I started with a thought in my head to try to use a stamp like I normally wouldn't.
I have used JR frame stamp. Stamped it on the page trying to create a pattern. Then embossed it. Once that done, added gelatos with all kinds of colors, waited to dry and cut out the centers of the frames.
I have stamped JR background and colored it with copics. This is my first image being colored with copics. I cant believe how vibrate colors come out.
I have stamped the embossed frames with the same JR background stamp because I wanted the inside to match the outside.
I put  the topper on pop dots and the card is almost done.
I was toying around with idea of adding ribbons and bow but they just didn't work. I really wanted to how the image inside
