OnLine Card class Day 4

i have time to post one last homework to the OnLine Crad class site before it’s locked up… So this is homework fo day 4: Using small dies. 

I have created a background with a series of small Easter Eggs.  It didn’t turn out quite as I expected, but I used the background anyway ,to […]

OnLine card class “Stretch your dies” Day 3

i am little late in my homework but I am truly enjoying that class… There is always something to learn even for someone who’s been making cards forever like me…

Today’s lesson was to use your “classic shape dies” in a different way.

I am copying the design that Jennifer McGuire used… Using a heart […]

Watercoloured garden

Today I would like to share this new watercolouring technique I have rediscovered.  I recently attended a craft show and Art Impressions stamps were “demoing” this technique.  Using stamps, inked with water based markers, you create your little scene and use a brush and water to smudge the lines of the stamped image.  Very easy […]

Another Valentine's Day card

You are going to be fed up with my Valentine’s Day cards… Here is another one – another shaker card, almost the same design as the one I made last week here. I’m also submitting this card to the Impression Obsession challenge (the Cherub is an Impression Obsession die).

Here is the new card:

Happy Valentine's Day - Joyeuse St-Valentin

I hope that you all had a very nice Valentine’s Day! I certainly had! I received from my Valentine a Fit Bit bracelet, a David’s tea mug and Valentine’s box of different teas. Very spoiled!

Here are more Valentine’s cards (the English one was for Jim, my Valentine!)

 

I called it my Valentine […]

Clean and Simple 4 class Day 2

I loved this technique shown by Debbie Hughes for the OnLine classes Clean and Simple 4 Day 2. It’s called Faux Paper Cutting and it’s a “collage” of pieces of die cut shapes. She did hers in a heart and I tried mine in a circle. It’s very therapeutic… almost like making puzzles…

Here’s my […]

Valentine

I know it’s been a long time!!! No excuses… just had no extra time for blogging…

Today, I want to share Valentine’s Day cards… I got inspired by a challenge I saw on the Impression Obsession website and since I got the Cherubs dies last year after Valentine’s Day and never got to use them, […]

Happy Birthday Marissa

It was my daughter-in-law’s birthday last week. We haven’t celebrated yet – she just had a baby… so I still have her card, but she doesn’t read my blog, so I think I’m safe…

She likes glittery/sparkly things… so I hope she likes this card… I used a shape from the Silhouette store that I […]

World Card Making Day challenge

I am entering a challenge on Ellen Hutson’s blog here for World Card Making Day. There are 5 different challenges I think.

This card is for the “Trend” challenge. Chevrons are very trendy right now, and I have used some Patterned paper with chevrons for the background of my Birthday card and my border at […]
