Pretty in Pink

I printed out a bunch of digi images from my stash the other day. It makes me uneasy to know that I have loads of them just sitting there, waiting to be used in a project. I think I should use them more often.

Here's a card I made with a cute image. Some quick colouring, some dry embossing and a simple punched out embellishment - easy and adorable! And one can't go wrong with gingham for baby cards :)
(Sadly, I don't have details of where I got this image from.)

 The pink gingham paper appears a little brighter than the actual shade. All a matter of  playing with light I guess...

Happy crafting!

Cool Shirt Card

I made this card for someone special. It will be on it's way to the reciver soon, so I thought I'd take a couple of pictures and share it with you.

Isn't the shirt adorable? I found the tutorial for it on Bird's Cards under 'Video Tutorials'. I think it's a faboulous idea for cards for men. And it's fun to play with, you can go dress up with it, dress down, funky patterns...lots of options.

Mine isn't really perfect...but I guess it's pretty decent for the first try :) Hop on over to the tutorial and have a go. It's fun!

 I just got my heat embossing tool and I'm still a little shaky :) Will get there soon!

Over to something else now, The Stamping Bazaar is having a DT call. If you're interested, give it a shot. Even otherwise, stop by at their website. They have some really cute stuff.

That's it from me for now.

Happy crafting!

Born to Shop!

Who'd say 'no' to retail therapy? This card reflects my mood so well! Maybe that's why I enjoyed making it :)

The image I've used is a digi from Amber Ink. Isn't it absolutely adorable? Love it! It's a treat to colour in :)

Happy crafting!
