I have been trying some new things. I joined a couple of card swap groups and began doing some exchanges. I am loving it! I am getting cards from all over the world.
Here are some of the cards I have created...
This one is an alcohol ink background. I loved how the bright yellow spot looked like a sun.
Here is a birthday card I made for my "stash on hand".
I always decorate the insides of my cards now. It gives them a professional, finished look. (And uses up some of the leftover scraps from the front!)
This was for a B&W challenge. It is the debossed (rather than embossed) side of the cardstock. I added some Stickles for a little twinkle.
The flower on this card was stamped on mulberry paper. I had never actually stamped on that type of paper before. I generally used it as accent paper or background. I love how it turned out.
This was a card that needed to include "I". I chose "inspiration" and "irridescence".
These were for a torn papers background.
I used fine glitter accents. Not too bad for a first try with that technique.
Hopefully I will be spending some quality time in my craft room this weekend. Need to finish up a few cards and a few commissioned gifts. Maybe I'll even get another post out for next week!
