Welcome to all my new followers and thank you to all those that visit and take the time to comment and like my posts. I really appreciate the feedback.
I am back to showing some of my cards that will be available at Make Shift when we open. I don’t know about you but sometimes I find it very difficult to make cards for teenage girls who are not into the flowers or butterflies or all things girly. So when I was in the local $2 shop I found these really cool layered stickers for these cards. I have made use of my CM border maker to make some borders as a contrast so the cards are quite edgy and not soft or feminine at all. I think the contrast between the deep pink and black is kind of cool as well. Anyway, here they are:
The materials I have used are:
Bazzill card stock
Plain black cardstock
Creative Memories Border Maker – hexagon and banner cartridges
Stampin‘Up greeting stamps
Couture Creations Drink Me embossing folder
I am really looking forward to going to Auckland in a couple of weeks to check out the launch of Close to My Heart in New Zealand. I am drooling over the cartridges for the Cricut machine and am scouring Trade Me for some bargains. I like using my Cuttlebug, but it will be nice to have an accurate cut each time and be able to layer the images and stamps together. It should add a whole new dimension to my crafting.
I hope everyone has a good weekend and I will catch up soon with some more cards and/or photographs.
