welcome-baby-giraffeI think this baby card is just so cute.  I wish I knew who created it.  I received it in a swap.  The wheel that was used is retired now but there is one similar that you could use to go with it that would give it the same effect.  I love to use the wheels as a quick and easy background.  Sometimes it can make all the difference in how a card looks.

birthday-wishes-cardThis was a fun card that I made for swaps last year.  This card used all the fun in-colors from last year.  I believe they were Purely Pomegranate, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi,  and Soft Sky.  This is a fun masking technique.  I also used watercolor for the presents.  The tag was done using glossy white paper.  I stamped in VersaMark® and then embossed it.  Then I used the brayer to roll color over the top of it.  The back ground was just using a simple roller.  I love using rollers for backgrounds because they are fast and easy.

sun-fun-cardI received this cute card at convention.  I was created by  D. Waterman (I think that was in her email address).  I love how she used the word window punch to create the Popsicles.  The watermelon is made by cutting the 1-1/4″ and 1-3/8″ Circle punches in 1/2.

I really love how she kept the wheel part simple and just rolled it across in the middle.  She also rolled the background of the white part with a different roller.  This is just a fun summer card.  I think it would also be a cute accent on a scrapbookpage.

lucky-me-cardThis is a card I made for a workshop last March.  I found it and thought I would share it with you.  I love the colors of this card.  I would have never thought to put them together.  I got the color scheme from the dsp.  It’s one from an old catalog, but I still love the card.  The ribbon is also retired now but you can still get the ribbon slider in the Hodge Podge Hardware.

This wheel is retired but I just love this card and had to show it to you.  This card is so simple but I love it.  First she wheeled the butterflies and then she colored them in.  

thanks-butterfiles-cardMy favorite part is that afterwards she covered the entire wheeled section with VersMark® pad and then iridescent ice embossing powder.  I love how it sparkles.  I think it’s such a great card.  I received this card in a swap, but it didn’t have a name, sorry.
