Sunshine & Rain

Hi there!

The weather has such a huge impact on our every day lives. Talking about the weather is also a great way to start a conversation... even with a stranger!

The weather also provides wonderful life lessons in the form of quotes and of course design inspiration for us card makers!

Today's card  is my visualization of one such quote :

I used:
  • Raindrop stencil  & sun cut with Silhouette cameo
  • Distress ink for BG stencilling
  • Promarkers to color the sun/ rainbow
  • My own digi sentiment which I will share below

You are welcome to download and use this on your cards or other projects.

Closet inspiration #2

Hi there!

Happy Saturday to you!

I'm here to show you the second card in my promised closet inspiration series. No idea how far I will go with this but it sure is fun, so expect more! If you missed the first card I made inspired by a piece of clothing from my closet, click here to take a look !

The inspiration: a little shift dress I just LOVE. One of those dresses you can slip on and feel 'dressed' time after time :)

I used:

  • Circle cutting file : Designed in the Silhouette studio by replicating one circle in rows and columns. Welding everything together and framed to cover the card front.
  • Happy sentiment cut with my cameo (Font : Jenna Sue)
  • Birthday stamp from Happy Little Stampers
  • Vellum
  • Rhinestones
  • Altenew inks as shown in photo

This dress was just begging to be 'cased' 😁. A card makers dream with so many elements for inspiration. There's the ombre purple/pink, the geometric pattern and the beautiful sheer top layer of fabric. I love the card as much as I love the dress! I hope you like it too ;)
