beach


My sister is going to Bali for a holiday so I made her this simple card :)

More fun paper piecing from Basic Grey's 'Sweet Threads' and 'Hello Luscious' collections using Lawn Fawn's 'Swimsuit Season'. I think the colours are perfectly beachy, reminds me of a sunset on a golden beach and a swim in a jade lagoon?

The cool thing is that the bikinis look a lot like the ones I got her for Christmas last time. Great paper matching huh? ;)

Oh, on another note, I'm so happy that my piglet card was featured on the Lawn Fawn blog :) Such an honour!

Thanks for stopping by and I deeply appreciate all your lovely comments. They make my day! :D

Hope you're having a fun weekend!

piglet


Paper piecing is by far my most favourite technique in making cards mostly because I am such a paper junkie. Totally addicted to paper! I am in love with Basic Grey's 'Sweet Threads' collection (bought a few paper pads!) that I used in this card I made for my sister :) 

Other paper collections I used were Memory Box's 'Brioche' and Basic Grey's 'Hello Luscious' and 'Lemonade'. The pig and chick are from Lawn Fawn's 'Critters on the Farm' set. The sweet 'hugs' sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

I had a lot of fun making this card! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

snail

What I love so much about the internet is the ability to attend online classes on the other side of the world! It is week 2 of Summer Card Camp 2011 and this is the delicious colour combo I just had to play with:



It's so summery and reminds me of watermelons, refreshing on a hot summer day :) It's cold, wet and miserable in Melbourne at the moment, so it was nice to bring some warmth and happiness to my card. It really cheered me up!



The cute snail is from Jane's Doodles: 'Garden Friends' set. 

Have a lovely day (my Melbourne friends, stay warm!) and thanks for looking :)

carousel


I made this carousel card for a friend's birthday. The gorgeous image and sentiment come from Lawn Fawn's 'Admit One' set - full of carnival goodness! :) It took me ages to come up with that colour combo, but it was a lot of fun to colour all those carousels I stamped out!

The copics I used were: E81 (ivory), R14 (light rouge), R12 (light tea rose), YR14 (caramel) and Y35 (maize). The sentiment looked a little crooked so I tried to balance it out with a small flower. Not sure it worked though, but I'm still happy with the card :)

Thanks for stopping by and I'll catch you soon. I'm excited with all the yummy colour combos that Summer Card Camp 2011 is coming up with so I'm sure to use one of them in my next card! :)
