I love to create cards and it seems people enjoy receiving them. You'll often find me amidst a stack of paper, glitter, stamps and inks playing with my supplies. If you would like to make an order, email me at cardsbycara AT hotmail DOT com
This month, I was able to participate in the Papertrey Blog Hop with new release products - they arrived just this afternoon! The school year has just ended and now I have some time to get crafty!
I took a piece of Recollections gray card stock as my base and cut a 110lb cream Recollections piece with the diagonal cover plate. I layered that over with a glue pen and then went to town with my Fresh Ink in peach on a piece of card stock before die cutting my (brand spanking new!!) Scripted word.
I added a Bloomers die cut and stamped piece (also brand spanking new!!) using Fresh Ink in turquoise and Versafine Onyx Black.
I have been a bit obsessed with cover plates. I made a card set of cover plate cards (see my instagram account) and made another for my Father's Day card. A simple design - a black cover plate die cut over a cream card base.
I added a blinked Wet Paint die cut in gold glittered paper with five layers below of cardstock to add some dimension and pop it up a bit. Super simple but well received by my dear father. <3 p="">
And here is a sympathy card I made for a colleague - very simple. I used the Giga Guidelines medallion with a Graceful Garden sentiment.
I used my trusty MISTI to do some ombre stamping with two aqua Avery Elle colours. I love that you can stamp over and over again in the same position for some depth.
The background is the Text Impression plate for some texture. I love my impression plates for this very purpose!3>
Over at Pretty Pink Posh, Paulina is hosting a fabulous blog hop:
Gorgeous inspiration, right? I decided to make a simple card with some watercolouring.
I swiped some different Avery Elle inks mixed with water over a piece of thick Strathmore water colour paper.
When that was dry, I took a PTI Hello die and die cut the word cut out, keeping the negative of the e and o.
I popped up the panel on a teal card base (paper from PTI) with lots and lots of foam tape and added back the negative pieces. Now that it is photographed, I see it needs a little bling so I will be adding some sequins, for sure!
