My Favorite Things - You Could Be a Card Design Superstar Contest


Hi All!

Today I want to share with you my entries for the My Favorite Things - You Could Be a Card Design Superstar Contest - 2016!

I almost missed the boat on this one, as I just heard about the contest last week! Wish I had more time to come up with another card (three is the maximum you can enter). But I guess two will have to do!
Well... what do you think of my first card?


How cute is this little guy!? 
I love how using a clear acetate on the bottom of the card makes it really look like a speech bubble ;)

I will link a list of the supplies I used below this post, but here is a list of the specific Spectrum Noir Markers I used (FS3, FS6, TN3, TN5, IG1 and the Blender).

Here is what the inside looks like.


I used adhesive black foam for my letters to add some texture and dimension.


It's clean, it's simple, it's fun... and that's what I was going for. I'm pretty happy with it since I feel like I'm still a newbie at this whole card making craft! Plus, it was easy enough that I'm going to make a few more to have on hand for birthday's that I have coming up soon!

And onto my second card...
In contrast to the first card this one is a lot darker and actually a little gloomy.


 Here is a close up of the glitter fun foam clouds and the distressed sky.


It gets a bit lighter and hopeful on the inside of the card. 

I think this is the perfect card this card to brighten up someone's day!


Hope you've enjoyed my entries to My Favorite Things - You Could Be a Card Design Superstar Contest.  Wish me luck, and if anyone one out there still has time today you should enter as well or at least take a peek at some of the entries (they are AMAZING) and very inspirational!

Dogwood Thank You Card - using Zig Clean Color Brushes + Stamping


Hello everyone!

Today I want to show you how easy it was to create this beautiful watercolored  Dogwood Thank You Card. Recently received some Zig Clean Clean Color Brushes and thought I would experiment with them and this is the result!


I was very please with how easy it was to do and wanted to share with you how you could obtain the same or similar results. As you will see my water colouring isn't perfect, and that is totally OK with me, but I still think the results are beautiful! ;)

To show you how I have recorded a really short process video.

Hope you were inspired today by my quick Dogwood Thank You Card using Zig Clean Color Brushes and Stamping Technique! Once you give this a try you will see what I mean. Oh and just one more important thing make sure you use WATER COLOUR paper or you maybe disappointed!

Thanks for stopping by!
