2 new cards...

Hi all.  Today I am going to show you 2 new cards that I have made this week.   The first card is for the Imagine That Digi Stamp design team.  Since it is getting close to Easter, I decided to use the Lamb of God file.  I think Kris did a great job with her drawing.  I colored the image with assorted Copic and Spectrum Noir Markers.   I fussy cut the image and pop dotted it onto a Nestabilities die cut that had been cut out of textured paper. Then I sanded the small circles for a little interest and dimension.   The sentiment is also from the Lamb of God file.  I made 2 tiny ribbons for the sides.

Be sure to check out all of the wonderful cards that the other design team members did.  And don't forget our Progressive challenge that is going on all month!

Next, is a card that I made on my own (not for a design team).  It is such a simple card, but it is really effective!  I used a Silhouette file called Quilt Card.  The file cuts circles with score lines that can be folded inward to make squares.  I chose some matching designer card stock and just glued them onto the base card that was embossed with an Embossabilities plate.  I added a sentiment with a rubber stamp and cut it out with the Nestabilities Fancy Frame die.  Yes, it was that easy!  I really love the way it looks!  I think it is very elegant and chic.  If I do this card again, I might try doing some distressing on it.  Then it will be shabby chic!  LOL

Till next time...

  2. ooo, LOVE both of these Barb!! Love the simplicity of your first card, letting the image be the focus and your quilt card I'm very intrigued by! Whoudda thunk? Making quilt like squares from a circle? LOVE IT!! I don't have the template but I wonder how easy that might be by eyeing it with a bone folder? I might have to give it a try. Love that effect. *Ü* Thanks so much Barb! Hope you have a great week ahead. xxKris
