Card: Random Projects 2

I've been busy these days in my craft room working on our granddaughter's birthday gift (I'll share it with you when it is done). I've also been working on cards and scrapbook pages so I thought you might like to see a random sampling of some of the cards I've created this last couple of weeks.

These are done with Washi tape and heat embossed stamping.

This one is done using glitter paper. I used my Cricut Cuttlebug to die cut the "Happy Birthday".

I watercolored and heat embossed this one. I like the color combination. I also played with my embossing folders to add texture and dimension to the cardstock as I built the card.

I've been playing a lot with the watercolor stamping technique lately. That is how I created this parrot. I have a technique blog posting for watercolor stamping coming soon. I also "fussy cut" some of the flowers from the background paper to add dimension over the parrot. The pink dots are made using Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss - Red Berry and they help to add dimension, too.

I made this silly card for our granddaughter. She loves getting mail! I made the bow using my punch board. You can learn more about that on my Technique: Envelopes, Bows, Boxes page.

To make this card I watercolored the background, then stamped/heat embossed the tree, bird, and sentiment. I also heat embossed a sentiment on the inside of the card.

Looking at my calendar I see that it is time to start working on Halloween cards and autumn cards! So much fun... also time to stock up on orange, yellow, gold, brown, olive, etc... cardstock, decorative papers and embellishments!
