Hi there!

Just a very quick post today showing a card made with one of my favourite stamp sets from BG/Hero Arts the Butterflies & Wildflowers . I love those flowers!! Here I have stamped the image on watercolor paper misting with water to blend the 3 distress ink colors (victorian velvet, peeled paint & walnut stain).

banner cards

I find it very hard to make many cards of the exact same design and colors - somehow it bores me. So I wanted to make some variations to the design I made here .... still prefer the stars card, though ;)

The design is very good for using up some scraps and it is fun to match the patterns, huh?

Newspaper Skyline

I really really like the Newspaper Skyline - infact all the newspaper stamps are yummy ;))

I am not sure if I like the finished look of this card though - the clouds are sort of covering up an inking mistake ;( - I can't seem to ignore that  - do you know the feeling??

The next card is more "me"  - I really love the soft apricot shadow ink with the brown and teal. Such yummy colors!!

Speaking about colors - the NEW MIDtone shadow inks arrived today - and I can't wait to try out those new yummy colors!!

Have a great week, y'all!

CAS chevron

Probably the most clean & simple card I have ever made ;)  Feeling inspired by the Clean & Simple Card Making Class!  Lots of white space on this ;))

I inked up part of the Zig Zag stamp (wiped carefully the parts I didn't want with a baby wipe, to make a clean edge).

The debossed frame was made using two die cut pieces - which I ran through my cuttlebug with an extra sheet of paper.

Stamps: Hero Arts Zig Zag & Year Round Sentiments.
Paper: Hero Arts layering paper, Watercolor paper.
Inks: Hero Arts Chalk ink Grass, Memories dye ink black
Other: MFT die

Thanks for stopping by today!

Weekend ;)

I spent a great evening yesterday with some lovely girls,  scrapping and making cards.  I managed to make 4,5 cards -  in between all the talking ;)) Woo hooooo!

Here is one of the cards using the leaf & flower background stamp and an already stamped piece from the scrap pile. Finished it up with some nice lace ribbon and a button and voila - another card for OSH ;)

I wish you all a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Reorganizing scraps - AGAIN ;))

Okay I think it is well known amongst scrappers that we have too much stuff, huh? I myself find it very hard to throw away stuff... ;))
But last weekend when I was making cards with a friend I realized that I've filled almost 4 drawers of paper scraps and it was very very messy and I just couldn't find anything anymore ;))

I spent a few evenings purging a lot and the rest of it I cut into 6 x 6" and sorted by colors. I did save some of my fav scraps (in the plastic bags sorted by colors).
In the drawers I also found some kraft & Hero Hues layering papers all ready to fold and score to A2 sized card bases.  Here is a before & after shot!

And here is a card I made using some of the scraps from the plastic bags ;)) I just love that color at the moment !!

Stamp: Hero Arts All the Time CL584, Papers: scraps ;), Inks: Distress inks & Memories dye ink.

How are you organizing your paperscraps? And most importantly how do you keep it organized ;) ?
