Get Well Soon & Thanks Birdie

The Get Well Soon card was inspired by K Werner (see Blog Roll) I kind of messed up the writing first time hand writing on a card and the yellow one was an accident turned into a card! Hope you like!

Tri-Fold Card & Gum Package!

Hello Everyone!!

I just wanted to send a note out there to my subscribers who may not visit the physical site everyday (but check my posts in their emails). I have updated the site to have a About/Contact page as well as a Blog Roll with all the links to sites I visit.
Last night I created a Fish themed Tri-Fold card, which means when you open the card to the left you have to open another fold to your right to get the message on the inside. This is great if you have a few people signing a card, or a few messages to give. Mine ended up being a fathers day card- not sure why but it reminded me of it

So here it is:

I also tried Holly Beary Creations new post. A gum pack! HOW CUTE?!?!?!
Can you tell I’m bored of studying?!?!  I had some light pink cardstock as a scrap so I decided to use that to try it out (as I’ve never made one before) and it ended up having sort of a Valentines Day Theme haha.


Hope you like and comment!

Happy Birthday Violet Card

Happy Friday Everyone!

I made these two cards this morning after class and before a huge project was due! But I got everything done! 3 More exams to go and then ill be done school forever! and can make cards whenever I want! (aside from work).
Let me know what you think of these two violet coloured cards. Patterned papers by DCWV. Stamp Set Happy Birthday by Hero Arts. The flower on the violet card was made by cutting a strip of 1-inch thick paper and cutting into 1-inch squares and then rounding out the opposite corners to create this cute flower!

Hope you like!

Sending you happy everything

So Last night I made this card but decided to post it in the morning because clearly cards do not photograph well in the evening.

Seize The Cupcake

Hello Everyone!

I created a card yesterday that was inspired by the fresh colours of green, orange, and hot pink. The patterned paper is from Die Cuts With  A View- The Glitter Sweet Matstack. Rhinestones from Me & My Big Ideas. Grosgrain Ribbon from Offray. Stamp Set by Hero Arts.

The photo doesn’t do the colours of this card justice. I’m wondering if anyone has tips on how to photograph their projects? I have a Nikon D60 and currently I shoot my cards in Manual mode for both ISO settings and focus. Anyone have any tips for me? I shot this card at night- which is probably my biggest problem. The yellow, orange and pink hues seem to not show up well in the photo!

Updated: Reshot the card during the day! Much Better!

Please comment with your tips!

Thanks!

Ashley
