I've been showing several Father's Day cards I recently made...
This is another one of that series... using embossing fodders and die cut shapes.
I placed black cardstock in the card base to be able to make the eclipse effect. Embossed cardstock shows hearts of love. Sentiment and image were stamped in the circle and applied with dimensional adhesives.
I also inked the edges of the circle for some distressed look
I was kind of thinking if sequins are appropriate for a Father card and I used these black and brown ones... and thought it was ok... What do you think?
Are you attending to a graduation this year? Maybe you are the one graduating! This is like the topic these days, huh?
I made a couple of CAS graduation cards. I combined stamps from two brands: sentiment is from Deep Red Stamps and image is from Unity Stamp Cos.
For this one I framed the sentiment and image and embellished with sequins.
I also added a little bit of glitter with glossy accents to the hats.
The second one, using same stamps and also with CAS (clean and simple) style, but the sentiment is the one having some glitters in the stars, and note that the hats were fussy cut and placed with dimensional adhesive.
Love the simplicity yet nice and well placed graduation cards I've just made. Hope you like them too. Happy Graduation!
Hey there. Tuesdays are tough... or so they say... It's a day that it's too close to last weekend but it's not weekend... and still too far from next one... Some people still getting warm for the work week. LOL!
So, I'm showing another Father's Day card using the wood embossing design... like the one I showed yesterday. In this case I die cut two circles before embossing the base, that was then glued to a black cardstock.
I stamped sentiments in the cut circles and I placed with dimensional adhesives using the eclipse look, with the black background.
As a final touch I glued a cord all around the rectangle and added some little buttons to the design. Hope you like it.
Get ready for Father's Day and get /make your cards soon. :)
Mother's Day was just two days away but want to show you this card I made... I call it imperfect mom because when I colored the image, I wasn't feeling well and I later realized it was really very rough... But you know I like imperfection...
In real life I think imperfection gives you permission to make mistakes and move on... to laugh about your situations... and be able to enjoy every single aspect of life knowing it is not perfect, but it's awesome.
So it is also true that when I do watercoloring, one of the things I like most its the imperfect look. So, sorry about the lines I didn't follow... but I love my card.
The image and sentiments are all from different Unity Stamp Co kits, but I combined to create a unique card, that I hope you like.
Hope you are having a great weekend. I'm a bit sick... This week has been very hard in terms of keeping up healthy and achieve all the duties at work and others... But here I am... Today will try to stay just taking care so tomorrow I can be where I want to be. :)
I made this card the other night... and I like the final result considering I was coughing, sneezing and dealing with watery eyes when making it ... LOL!
I wanted the feather to have different colors while keeping harmony so I used blue, fuchsia and purple.
Both the sentiments, and the image are from different Unity Stamp Co. kits. For the sentiment in the upper corner I stamped it in a circle patterned paper and framed using dimensional adhesives.
Sequins give a final touch. Hope you like it... and hope the recipient likes it too... A coworker got it for his stepmom.
