Do What You Love

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today's post is a little bit different. These projects were completed toward the end of my school term. I was feeling stressed and needed to relax so I was colouring a little bit each night for some relaxation. I was also using this as an opportunity to practise my copic colouring as I haven't done any for ages. I had some practice images and I decided that one was good enough to use on a project. I played around with my distress oxides and before I knew it...a card had been created!

I used some of the Shabby Chic Background papers in my card and the sentiment of a Christmas stamp!

My second card is an elegant card which again uses the Shabby Chic papers. I have wanted to make one these card wrap cards for a while and decided that I would see if I had a suitable die in my stash and have a go and make one.

I had a Heartfelt Creations layered posy die which was originally designed to create a gatefold styled card and it was perfect for this card. I then die cut Memory Box Kensington Branch die along with the sentiment which is part of set from Tim Holtz Celebrate die collection. I needed to have elements that complimented the elegant swirls from the wrap portion of the die.
This middle section of the card lifts up as a top folding card so that you can write your sentiments inside.

Two very different projects completed using the same paper collection but created just for the purpose of enjoyment!

Birthday Cards

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great day. Today I am sharing two birthday cards that I have made. Over on the Kaisercraft blog, the DT are sharing how they have incorporated two texture dies into a project. I have the texture die called ragged - DD479 which looks like this.

I created two birthday cards using this die and I am thrilled at how they both turned out. For both cards, I used the die and created my chippie using it then altered it with an ink. It helped me to create my background. I used the vintage collection Pen and Ink to complete my card as well.

For my second card I used the Fleur paper collection. It's a pretty floral collection and paired with paper blooms and ribbons, creates feminine and pretty cards.

I inked it using a Kaiser ink pad and I love how it compliments the paper and the flowers!
