Crazy Card Party - Colour It!

Hi all!

This week at Crazy Card Party Regan wants to see those coloured cards.

I played around with my Peerless watercolours to create this card inspired by one I saw on Pinterest:

I coloured some watercolour paper then punched the butterflies out. I also brushed some watercolour paint across the background,

Crazy Card Party - Vellum

Happy Thursday everyone!

This week over at Crazy Card Party, Patricia wants to see our cards with vellum.

I happened to make two.

This first is based on one I saw on Pinterest.

I'm not happy with how the balloons turned out although I do like the vellum clouds.

And on this second I tried two techniques, dry embossing as well as heat embossing on vellum layered over kraft.

I will definitely emboss on vellum again.

Pop over to Crazy Card Party to see how the other ladies used vellum.

Supplies used: Papertrey Ink - cardstock, dies, stamp, ink; Momento Ink; My Minds Eye, Freckled Fawn enamel dots; American Crafts embossing folder; Stampendous embossing powder

Christmas Cards!

It's not too early to post some Christmas cards is it?

I had some time off this week and finished these cards from a kit I've had for awhile.

It feels good to complete a project that's been hanging around awhile.

I think the one above is my favourite.

Hmm, what else can I finish.......

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello again.

This week at Crazy Card Party Avril wants to see our cards using a doily.

I dug a gold doily out of my stash to create this card:

Pop over to Crazy Card Party to check out the other doily adorned cards.

Thanks for looking.
