AECP: Faux-clipse Thank You Card

Don’t you just love the eclipse technique? How about the faux-clipse?
The eclipse technique is super fun and not too difficult, but I created a riff on the technique, I’m calling a faux-clipse.

On the CASE: Faceted Flower

It’s coming!
Spring is trying so hard to melt all the snow here in East Nebraska – but, it’s coming! Soon, the grass will be growing and little plants will be pushing up from the ground. Why not add to the anticipation with a lovely, but simple, faceted floral design, courtesy of Concord & 9th!

AECP: Build a Garden Scene Card

It’s time to chillax with some coloring!
I took my project over the top today with a combination of Copic and Polychromos pencil coloring. I am not embarassed to say that the elements took me about 90 minutes to color.

Organic Embossing & Vellum Stamped Watercolor

BLUF: Necessity is the mother of ingenuity
Today’s project was born from one of those “I wonder if”… scenarios.  I really, really, really wanted to have some bold, vibrant florals on vellum, but after stamping, I was not happy with the result.

How to make a Watercolor Rose Diecut Card

You can make today’s card in about 5 minutes!
Sometimes being a cardmaker has nothing to do with stamping or sentiments. My card for Festive Friday doesn’t have either!

On the CASE: Say Hello

Are you ready to CASE another card design with me?
Ann and I are back with new CASE files this week. I thought I’d decipher another fun design from Concord & 9th.

AECP: Sweet Ink Blending

Are you ready for a design as fluffy as cotton candy?
This card is a recent favorite, for sure! I love how all of the inking techniques give it such a soft appearance, while the glitter paper panel adds a layer of texture, like sugar coated candies!

AECP: Painted Flowers Hello

Mystified by Altenew’s multi-step floral stamps? Yup – they’re absolutely beautiful, but when you get your first Altenew bloom builder stamp set in your hands, it can be a scary thing!

Festive Friday: Masked Glitter

Are you ready to take glitter paper to the next level? I’ve been having a lot of fun coming up with new ways to add some “wow” to my projects, and I’m really in love with the look I’ve got for you this week.
