CardMaker Blog hop with Sakura

Welcome!  Today the CardMaker Blog team is hopping using Sakura of America's products.

My card today focuses on the Gelly Roll Classic White pen.  I created my background using the white pen and a ruler.  The pen writes really well onto colored card stock, better than any other white gel pen I have used.  I decided to leave it a bit off-kilter and not complete the whole background, and i like the end result!  I can see myself using this for more backgrounds in the future. ;)
I popped up my flowers and highlighted a few of the middle stamen pieces with the Clear Glaze pens to add a little detail and depth to them.

I am the LAST stop on the hop today, if you missed anyone, make sure to head back through and check out everyones projects!

Hello card using Adhesive Sheets for die cutting


It's a cruddy rainy day here in the PNW.  We've been so blessed with such phenomenal weather these last few months that a few cruddy days are actually ok in my book!  Lots to get caught up on INSIDE the house!

I am sharing a quick tutorial over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog today using the Adhesive Sheets with your dies- Head over to check out just how easy they are to use!

Every Girl card using @lilinkerdesigns


I just recently got a new set of the Spectrum Aqua markers, and have been playing around with them. Some days it's so fun to just color or play and not have a plan.  Which is sort of what happened here with this card...

And for some reason, I really just love how this turned out- which is SO odd considering my love for clean and white space.  :)

I was just trying colors out, playing amounts of color to water, and I ended up with a fun background piece and decided I could use it.  The stamp is from Lil' Inkers, and the gold splatter is from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L's new Pigment Powders.  (Check out the "how to" here on the Pigment Powder.)

I stamped the sentiment and hearts and then embossed with white detail embossing powder, then finished it off with a little grey striped washi tape before popping it up on a card base.

Happy weekend!

I shared this over the CardMaker blog the other day, and am finally sharing here.  

This is a redo of an older card I had published with them from 2010.  It's quite interesting to see how your style evolves and changes.  The stamps are from Lil' Inkers, and the ink is from Avery Elle.
If you head over the CardMaker blog you can see the original.
