OCC Mask-erade Day 1

Thanks to Debby's and Laura's careful instructions about ink-blending I FINALLY managed to get a nice and smooth result (look at that perfect circle!). Even if I have only large post-it notes for masking. The secret of the butterfly: at the very last bead, it didn't fully stick onto my cardstock and then I managed to tear it up. :-O Then I had to apply a butterfly band-aid to heal it. :-) I like the overall look of the card I'll give ink-blending another try more confidently next time.

IN[K}SPIRE_me #199

I needed a quick and simple card for my brother's birthday and the newest sketch from the IN[K}SPIRE_me Challenge #199 provided a great opportunity for that. I wasn't sure about the three little hearts at first, but in the end I didn't think it made it girly or anything, so I'm glad I stamped them there. :-) Oh and I'm still in love with the cork stars from Scrapfellow and these Studio Calico - Sundrifter patterned papers.

RIC #84

I rarely make cards without a white card base. But it had to happen in this case. :-) It's pretty simple too, I hope you can see the glossy on the triangles and the shinyness of the gold balloons. I coloured in the triangles with HA - Raspberry Jam and TH - Picked Raspberry inks after squishing them onto an acrylic block.  

This was the inpsirational photo:

And my card:

(The sentiment means "Let's celebrate!". The stamps are from Scrapfellow.)

Mother's Day Card 3

Last but not least, my 3rd MD card for this year. I attempted it using basic masking tricks - and even this had a wow effect on my relatives. So I cannot wait to attend OCC's next class called Mask-erade. I won a free spot there from the fantabolous Debby Hughes - thanks again, Debby!

Mother's Day Card 2

Yes, I'm a bit behind with posting my mother's day cards, but going on maternity leave doesn't mean you have all the time of the world for yourself. :-)) I have one more to post and then I'm back to regular birthday cards, currently working on a sea-themed one.
