Live Love Cards

Live Love Cards has a new challenge this month — bottom heavy (leave white space at top). I have been a member of Live Love Cards for quite a few years and not only learn so much from Darlene but also from the other members. I can usually find what I am looking for in the Forum or searching for a particular technique, design or use of a certain product.

I am always challenged by Clean and Simple cards and this was even more challenging to keep the design on the bottom. I was inspired by last week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches (#339).¬†Here is my card.

The floral papers are from my stash. Sentiment and flower die cuts (colored with Copics) are from Hero Arts.

In addition to Live Love Cards I would like to participate in the following challenges:

Crafting By DesignsAnything Goes
Little Red Wagon –¬†A Rose By Any Other Name (flowers)

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Shabby Chic

The current challenge over at Little Red Wagon is to make a shabby chic card. Way out of my comfort zone, but I gave it a whirl. Here is the card.

Using Tim Holtz distressed edge tool helped me to create the edges around all the panels. The papers are from a fellow card maker called Butterfly Garden by Pink Paislee. Sentiment from GinaK, Tag from Spellbinders. Flowers and ribbon Recollections. Lace Tim Holtz collection. Also used tea dye distressed ink to “shabbisize” all the elements.

This was great fun and I think I may make a few more.
