Cards & things
Good day! I can't wait for spring.
All todays post pictures were taken with my cell phone camera, not too shabby for 2 megapixels eh.
Over the last few months I made some cards & remembered to snap a quick picture before sending. I don't recall the paper brands used. Does branding them as "from my stash" count? They've all been happily mailed away.
This is a card I made with my gypsy "Smiley cards" free download cartridge. The hat, glasses & buttons were an odd colour & I used glimmer mist to make it more interesting. I learned how to make "shape cards" from Sheila at "She's a Sassy Lady" blog. She has great free video tutorials to learn how to get more use out of the Gypsy.
Sorry this is sideways, I have no idea how to flip it. It is a belated birthday card for a family member. Pretty suspicious looking characters huh. I used Gypsy & "3-Birds on Parade" cartridge.
Gypsy & "Lite Handy Man" cartridge. The silver paper was furnace tape. I like how shiny it comes through.
These are flower cards made using the inside cut away portion of flowers from the "George & Basic Shapes" cartridge. I made a pile of flowers from different papers to stick to the wall with poster putty. I forgot to take a picture of those, they were so pretty. I saved all the centre oval shapes & with a simple glue stick they made a sweet parcel of gift cards. Never mind Boomer's tail there, he just had to assert himself. The shiny centre is leftover tear drop shapes from a dollar store package.
I like that these are plain but pretty. I hope they make you smile.
I saw a sweet checklist at Michaels craft stores I really liked. I have no idea who authored this list but it makes me happy. It reminds me of the fun emails that float around.
To Do Today:
Spy Something Silly
Laugh till it hurts
Take a Risk
Tell a Secret
Sing out loud
Rock the boat
Shake things up
Flirt with disaster
Buy something frivolous
Colour outside the lines
Cause a scene
Get carried away
Have a great day
