As a card maker, I get a lot of my inspiration for my projects from things around me. It could be colors, textures, wallpaper, food….I love it when something stops me in my tracks and I have to quickly write down an idea from it. For today’s project, I was inspired by these vintage-style post cards I’ve had in my drawer for ages. I don’t use them, I just like to look at them, LOL! They have always reminded me of something a grandmother would have. Very comforting and happy.
For some reason, with all the card making I do, I can never seem to have enough baby cards on hand. Or I have some for just a girl or just a boy. Today’s project, will help bulk up your baby card collection with an easy design and a few quick swipes of the die cutting machine.
I love big, bold stamped flowers, but what do you do when the flowers are supposed to be white? How do you add some texture or interest so it doesn’t just lay flat on the card? Adding detail with a Versamark pen can make all the difference.
When you are sick, there’s nothing better than having someone take all the worries off your plate for a while. I love the sentiment on my project today, because it’s telling a friend you’ll take care of things. Plus, there’s a pun involved which can always bring a smile.
Valentine’s Day is for couples to show their love and sometimes even an engagement ring. I created this project today using the Sizzix Sparkle die and stamp set from Jen Long. It has a modern style heart with lots of sparkly additions.
Lately, I’ve been working with vellum a lot on my cards. The elegant translucence is so pretty and calming. After working with a lot of bright, rich colors for the holidays, I thought it would be nice to lighten it up a bit. We probably all have many thank you cards to send out, so today’s project is a thank you card set using some thick vellum and a stamp from Hero Arts.
