Bundle Of Joy

Hi Guys! A couple of weeks ago some friends of mine got a new little baby, and I just had to send them a card. When they got married two years ago I used a couple in the geeky series, so of course I just needed to use one of the baby images in the same series. I decided to crop the image with some heart dies to "zoom" in on the baby and parents, to make them the focal point. I paired it with a die cut in the same size to get dimension with out making the card bigger. This is a smaller card, and I've been on a smaller card fix lately, it's so fun working with clean and simple and small.

All the MFT Stamps challenges!

Hi Guys!

I love challenges, they make me think in new ways. I love combining challenges, that makes it just a little bit harder. My Favorite Things have two challenges, the sketch challenge and the colour challenge so I decided to join both and while doing that use a whole bunch of my new fun supplies.

One of the things that I got last week was all of the sample packs of paper, I love sample packs because not only do I get to try the paper it self and see thickness and tooth, I love colouring with pencils on coloured cardstock so the tooth of the paper is important, but also I get to see all the colours which can be hard to see on a computer screen and now I can see what colours I like and that I feel I need more of. But who am I kidding, I want all of the papers! It's also awesome for a colour challenge as then I can compare the colours directly and I can use bits and pieces for my cards.

Birthday Wishes

Hi Guys!

I've been dying to play with the new Distress Crayons, I've watched every little youtube video I could on the subject, kind of figuring out what I could or could not do with them. So when they dropped in in my mail a couple of days ago I just couldn't wait! I really bought them for my Mixed Media Journal but thought I would see how I could use them on my cards.

At the moment I'm totally crazy about using all of the techniques, trying out everything and I hope that you enjoy coming on that journey with me. The colour scheme for this card is directly picked out of one of the Distress Crayons packages, I so loved how they looked next to each other and I just had to play. Hope you enjoy the video.
