Inky Fingers

I spent some time last weekend making a few cards, there is such a lot of inspiration to be found on Pinterest and other blogs. I have a table set up in my lounge room in front of the window, a bird bath sits just outside my lounge room window and it is such a pleasure to  see the birds washing themselves and splashing in the bird bath. Some days I wonder how I manage to create anything becuase my table is always cluttered with papers, inks, and all manner of card making paraphernalia. Here are a few of the cards I have recently made.

Another Boy's Card

Making boy's cards isn't always easy but if you have the right stamps it doesn't have to be difficult. This card was relatively easy, just some stamping and a little colouring in. This style of card is called an easel card because it stands up like an easel once opened. I made this card for my niece's son, he loves playing video games.

Creative Projects

I love surfing the internet for new ideas, Pinterest  is my favourite  for getting lots of ideas for new projects. I am amazed by at how talented some people are. Some days I spend way to much time on the computer, but I always come away with great ideas. Here are few things that I have created recently.

This is a 6x6 canvas that I decorated for Christmas. The flower, leaves and letters are cut using the Artist Cricut cartridge from CTMH, I added some stamping and a little bling to finish off the project.

I love making boxes, these are 2 quick and easy boxes to make. Wouldn't anyone love receiving a beautifully decorated box with a few Ferro Roche chocolates inside. They are one of my favourite chocolates. This cute little box on the right holds 12 tea lights, there is a great tutorial on Sam McDonald's You Tube site for making this box.

"Thinking of You"

One of my friends has been unwell, and will be off work til the end of the year. So I decided to make a card for her, hoping  it would brighten her day. I planned on posting it so it needed to be pretty flat. I have wanted to try this technique for a while, the background is created using an acrylic block and three different ink colours.
