Valentine sparkles

I made a fun Valentine the other day while I was playing with my new alcohol markers.  I made the hearts from the sliver glimmer paper that was colored with the cherry cobbler set.  Great fun!

Way to go!

wayToGoApparently I was on a roll tonight.  I made this great, simple looking Congratulations card.  I was trying to figure out what I could do for the angle lines, that wasn’t ribbon.  Then I remembered I got a stamp in my Paper Pumpkin that was a great set of arrows.  Love the polymer.  I still need to work on getting a closer aim on the lineup, but for a quick congrats card not too shabby.  Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch 140

I think for the heck of it I’ll enter it over at Freshly Made Sketches.   I tried one that had different colors for the lines, but I just couldn’t get into it.   The color changes seemed way to abrupt.  I probably could have used stamping off to get a gradation of the lines, but that actually wasn’t something I thought about until just now.  At one point I thought maybe it was too plain, so I added some sequins to it randomly.  It added some shiny, but really didn’t do anything for the overall card and well they looked tacked on.  I’ll take a picture later so you can see what I mean.  I guess simple is the best.

I like all the base ideas these sites give.  Hope you have a great night and happy crafting!

Congratulations Party

With graduations right around the corner, we’re going to get a head start making some great cards for the occasion.  I’m going to have one card holders and other variations soon for March 5th too.

Brains and the Paper

Don’t forget you don’t have to make these specific ones, there a lot of different options to choose from.  Just remember it will probably take a bit longer for me to get the supplies together for them.

Birthday Skids

Skidding in to wish you a Happy Birthday

This was a fun card.  Skidding in to wish you a Happy Birthday!  I was missing some inspiration until I looked over at the Freshly Made Sketch

FMS Final 113-001

that was going on.  So I squealed my tires on over to the card corner and went at it.  I usually pick the fire trucks, but I thought it should be the police delivering the news on this one.

Mr. Gobbles the 4th
