I followed the flip card tutorial on Pinterest using partial die-cutting. On the left side I added a blue border created with a punch. On the green patterned paper I added a butterfly, flower and a bunny sticker. I love the bright colors, they match so perfectly together!
When I came across the new challenge from 4 Crafty Chicks called "Gingham" I had to look it up, as I haven't heard that name before. In German we call it "Karo". So I looked through my cards and I found one where I used gingham patterned paper. The cake is again from the Stampin'up set "Make a Cake".
For this birthday card I used the two Stampin'up sets "Make a cake" and "Framelits - Hearts a flutter". As I have so many patterned paper I made a monochromatic card. The sentiments are from the Stampin'up set "Kleine Wünsche".
This is my first watercolor card with bokeh technique I tried. I got so infected by that technique, that I already produced a dozen of those cards. You can't see it really good on the picture but I used the "Wink of stella brush glitter pen" on the little black stars. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the watercoloring.
This is my last Valentine's Day card this year. I just purchased Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ribbon Buckles and used it on this card for the first time. I hope you can see that there are little hearts on the green ribbon.
Yesterday, I created a few Valentine's Day cards. One for my hubby and three for my best friends. I send them a card as well, to tell them once more how glad I am to have them in my life.
One of my favorite technique is the bokeh technique on watercolors. Now I already know how to get the best results. That took a while. But meanwhile, I love the outcome.
After my father died two years ago, his father died two weeks ago. It is a big loss for my grandmother and her family. When I see his picture on the kitchen wall, I can't believe that he is gone.
I wrote my grandmother the following card:
I used the Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch. The branch is from the Stampin'up set "In Gedanken bei dir" and I used the heat embossing technique for it. The background is the woodgrain embossing folder.
I am back online after quite a long absence. But Christmas time was quite busy, then everyone was sick, my grandfather died, we have been on a short vacation, etc. Furthermore, on my free nights I preferred making card rather then posting them. But meanwhile, I have so many new cards, I want to show them to you!
This is a clean and simple card for Valentine's day. I love to send a card to my best friends too, not just to give one to my sweet heart.
