I am back with another card for the Muse Card Club.

This week I wanted to do something a little different – so I have made a shaped card. I purchased a cute Sizzix Big Owl #2 die from a craft expo that I recently went to – and I love it! (Therese – I’ve finally used it!)

Hey There – Muse

I am back with another card for the Muse Card Club.

muse_logo

I have a very CAS card for you this week.

To create the ombre background I used Copic markers and kept blending the colours together until I had a smooth gradient (see the supplies for the colours I used). I then die cut the word ‘hey’ and used the negative space. The ‘there’ is white heat embossed.

Vellum is the star

Another card for the  Online Card Class – His and Hers. I actually made this earlier in the week, but wasn’t quite sure if I liked it…

This was inspired by uber talented Cristina Kowalczyk and her vellum creations on Day 2. I never did get around to making a female version as I ran out of time – but I was thinking almost identical to this but with hearts and using shades of pink.

I actually had this blue and teal vellum in my stash (it must be at least 10 years old!). Vellum is not the easiest of materials to work with – especially concealing the adhesive! I find scattering elements on a card quite difficult – there certainly is an art to it.

Happy Birthday vellum

Hi,
I am back again today sharing another card at the Muse Card Club.

muse_logo

This week I have a card using some of my favourite colours – teals and blues. I created the background by cutting strips in varying widths and adhering them to a panel. I then white embossed my images over the top. The small dots are white enamel accents.
