Birds card set


I am in love with the new Bird Crazy stamp set by Tim Holtz. I am not sure what it is, but those birds are just adorable.

Quick Copic coloring and bright fun papers and here is a great card set.




I am submitting this card to the:
1. Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge
2. Work it Wednesday Simon Says Stamp - aren't those colors so springy and fun?

Very Quick happy birthday cards

I love a quick happy birthday card. And making one with stickers is really the easiest one.

I made 3 happy birthday cards and I think the total time including taking the pictures was less then 30 minutes.

For the background I used the Envelope pattern stamp from hero arts, I think it adds a lot to not have a blank white background.

The stickers are chipboard and they are so sparkly and shiny, those cards are going to kids and I'm sure they will love them.

Happy cards

I wanted to make a few small cards to suit all occasions. I found in my stickers drawer gllitter flower stickers I have for forever, don't ask me which company or where I bought them, I truly believe they were bought back in 2011 when I started creating cards.

So I challenged myself to finish all of them and use them on my new cards.

I really like the results, so bright and happy bards. They are 3''*3'', they perfect size for a quick card.

Faux Ceramic Tiles

On day 1 of the Online Card Class - Clean and Simple 4, Julie Ebersole showed how to create the look of a ceramic tile with clear embossing.

I loved it so much, I had to try and I did it with two different stamps, I just love how it turned out. It's really not my usual style for cards but I like it so much, those cards will probably go to someone I like a lot :-)

For the first one I used the PaperTrey Ink "Beautiful Blooms II" stamp set and die. All the inks I used are distress inks.

This is the first time I used a gold string in the background and although it was not easy to find the right place for it, I like the way it turned out.



Here is a closer look to the how the cardstock looks after two coats of clear embossing. Shiny and fun, really like a real ceramic tile.

For the second card I used the "Antique Butterflies & Flowers" stamps and dies. In real life the green is so much more vibrant.

Congrats on your new home



I am taking the new Online Card Class - Clean and Simple 4 and I love it!

Of course, they are already on day 7 and I only had time to make this one card, from a technique that was taught by Jennifer McQuire - Layer with ink.

I love how the background turned out.

I couldn't resist adding the bow to the house, I think it's very fitting to a card for a new house. The house is from the Mi Casa Stamp set by Hero arts.

Here is a closer look at the background. (I used the Tiny star background stamp from hero arts and a cloud stencil I made with a punch).



I am adding this card to the Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge ( H is for Hero Arts).
