Celebrate YOU

Most of my projects feature digital stamps and that's where I usually start.  I always choose an image first, get it coloured and then decide what I'm going to do with it. 
For this card I have done the opposite.  I was having a play with a new die.  It's a lacy kind of wave and I knew it would look amazing layered up in ombré blues to represent the sea. Once I had all the layers glued down, I trimmed to 4x6. I used shimmer chalk then a layer of clear texture paste to give it a glossy shine. 
Once that was dry I matted onto black and pale blue before gluing it to my card. 
I finished off with die-cut sentiments and 'Pearl's Birthday' from Tiddly Inks.

  • Coloured cardstock
  • Lacy wave die

A Super Birthday

Do you ever colour images then don't do anything with them straight away?  Sometimes I'm in the mood for colouring but don't have the mojo to make anything, so I end up with a pile of coloured images. I'm trying to get things used up and although it's been harder with the kids off school, I've made time for some crafting here and there.  
Today I am sharing a fun card using 'My Super Boy' from Tiddly Inks. I bought some holographic card in Michaels a while ago when they had special offers and this was just the perfect image to use it with. 

Products used:

  • Card blank
  • Holographic card
  • Cardstock
  • Banner die
  • Star eyelets
  • Star confetti
  • 3D foam pads

I coloured the image in traditional Superman colours

The holographic stars really seem to burst in the light
