I bought myself an envelope template last week, I had put off buying it for a long time as i felt it was a waste of money.. but im very happy that I got it. I use it with tablex card stock that i got for $1 at penrith markets to make made to measure envelopes.
Below is a 5inch envelope made from a 21cm square piece of tablex (which is just a low gsm cardstock)
Here is my now 13 yr olds birthday card, i started making her a blingy type card with glitter and swirls and I really didnt like it. So I went back to basics.. I like going back to basics! Chelsea liked her card.. she was very interested in knowing why the dragonflies were the same colour as the card and the ribbon.. (got to love the in colour range from SU)
Here are some recent cards that I have made, and luckily enough i took photo's of them. the first was a simple but elegant wedding card, the inside in printed on shimmer card stock and i loved how it turned out, im not normally a prepurchased embellishment type of girl, but i was given the wedding dress for this card as it looked quite empty without it. Thanks Deby!
This card sat on my desk for weeks and weeks, simply as a butterfly stamped out on white card, i had no idea what to do with it. I eventually came up with this card and was really happy with how it turned out. I was initially saving the green dot paper on the card for a male card.. but inspiration had other things in mind!
The next few items are a variants of a Kaszazz workshop. I fell in love with the Bear and I had to have her! I used prismacolour pencils and gamsol to colour the card and tag and dimensional magic to make the flowers pop. The bear is still one of my favourite stamps!
I meant to add these photos last week, here are the other 4inch cards to go in the little gift box that i made to compliment them.
I often find it really hard to come up with ideas, that make things look different. I also am not that great on coming up with layering, sketch and symetrical ideas.. im happy with these but of course i can see room for improvement.
