The One Before The Last One

This one just needed the right occasion with a sentiment before I'd made the last baby card for my friend. I realized it'd be my dad's nameday next week, so I cut a piece of black cardstock, loaded into my old Dymo (as seen on Tim Holtz's blog) and then painted the letters with a white gel pen (unfortunately, my black cardstock wasn't white cored). The tree was cut with my Silhouette, the background watercoloured and accented with matching enamel dots. I tried to achieve here some sort of ombre effect.







Update: I forgot to link this up to the challenge I wanted to (baby brain...) since creating watercolour background is currently my fave technique - it's quick and easy. So the challenge is: Simon Says Stamp - Use Your Favourite Technique / Product

Can You Spot It?

It's not easy even to sit down in the last days before my due date, so this one might be my last card for a little while. However, one of my friends' had her baby girl very recently, which means I have to send her a cute card. And PaperSmooches current Picture Perfect Challenge gave a great opportunity for this.




Can you spot the little elephant on yellow background below on the shelf? :-) Now that's where my elephants came from! Hopefully, you can spot also the other elements of the photo on my card, like the zigzag pattern, the yellow, aqua and white colours etc.




Now thanks for "inspecting" (hehe) my card and have a nice week!

OCC Mask-erade Day 3

Day 3 was all about fluid masking. As I haven't got the slightest idea what it is called in Hungary :)) or where to buy it and it's around 30 C these days here (not the best temperature for a preggo lady but I like that it's nice and sunny at last) I decided to replace it by Glossy Accent. And it worked! OK, you cannot peel it off but I think it's still a nice opportunity. I followed Debby's wood pattern in this case.

OCC Mask-erade Day 2

Well, I have worked on this card more than ever before. It's for a very special wedding in August. I had to make it now as the baby comes around July and I'm not sure how I'll cope with my new schedule. :-)

The progress: stencil-making with my silhouette, masking with it, ink-blending, heat-embossing, a little bit of sewing, 3D-mounting, creating a cut file, then using its negative on my card - for this one also having to put back those itty-bitty little details of the letters. PHEW!
