It's so exciting when you see your children (and friend's children) grow up and make their way in the world. Buying your first house is one of life's momentous occasions, and I made this card for my friend's daughter & SIL who have just moved in to their new home.
I doodled the sun rays and coloured with Prismacolor.
I was so tempted to make a tiny tag with a babygro for this week's CASology challenge : Clothes as I have two friends about to become grandmothers for the first time. But I do have the sweetest dress from our sponsor, Stamplorations, and who can resist a party!
I used a small piece of black string to create a place to hang the dress. I doodled the stars and dots, added some Wink of Stella and mounted with coloured foam. Trying to catch the delicate shimmer of Wink of Stella is not easy.
Our design team members have come up with some wonderful cards ... come and see their inspiration.
It's almost impossible to go wrong with the watercolour effect. So I thought it would be a wonderful activity for our 20th Anniversary Weekend for our Book Club. I'll take some cards, but I think we could all do with a bookmark as a memento of the weekend. So I typed up the Mark Twain quote, and cut into bookmarks. I'll be taking some May Arts Silk ribbon which is brilliant for dyeing with your Distress Inks so that it matches the colours of your card/bookmark. I can't wait to see the different colour combinations that come up.
After creating my dark cards, I had Distress Oxides left on my craft sheet. Can't let that go to waste, so dabbed it on a navy card. This made me think of the milky way. So add a few embossed and die cut stars, a sentiment and voila!
