I've Been Carding
LoL... I am enjoying cardmaking and feel that I am getting better with each card... I think.. giggling
September is a busy Birthday month in my family and with my cardmaking in full throttle, my Mom asked me to make a Birthday card for my sister and with that took the slow approach to keeping it simple. I must say that it's easy for me to overthink a project and end up with a motherload of embellishments. For the card base I used Colorbok multi-stripe cardstock, and also Colorbok cream cardstock to print the digi stamp from Bird's Cards, she has such lovely circle frames which has channels to add a sentiment. Again I used a digi sentiment stamp from Bird's Cards and used WordArt for Dear Daughter. Now on to the good part, coloring takes me back to my childhood, being an introverted child I had tons of crafting gadgets to placate me and one being coloring books. I immediately pulled out my stash of Glitter Gel Pens & Colored pencils and presto a simple card with pop.
This card is from me to my Sister incorporating a bit of fun. My sister is all about a good time and full of fun and tried to show that in my card. I used a girly digi stamp I believe from my google search for free digi stamp images. I used Colorbok Argyle cardstock and DCWV 6x4 Matstack. As I'd mentioned earlier, I enjoy coloring with my colored utensils and colored away a hectic day. Of course, I had to add bling (My Moments Petite Gems) on one of the balloons & her belt… too cute. For the fonts I used Inkadinkado Clear Font Rubber StampsCopic Markers which offers a variety of shading markers in earthtones, but not sure if I can handle the price of them.... just yet.
This card is for my Brother.. again I went with simplicity using Colorbok cardstock & DCWV 6x4 Matstack, together with Bird’s Cards Digi Sentiment stamp. For the name I used WordArt in Powerpoint and finished off the fonts with Black glitter gel pen… could I get any more masculine than that.
Off to see what other craftiness I can tangle myself up in... Have a Great Week.
