Hello again! I've been busy making birthday cards (have a few coming up in August!) so I'll share some with you!This is the first card I did. I used Papertrey Ink's Color Couture paper download for the background on this. I started out only using Orange Zest and Hibiscus but I threw the green in at the last minute and I love these colors paired together.For the next card, I ran back and grabbed these papers randomly and put this one together. I wanted to try the sentiment on a circle and rest came later. I don't like the bunched ribbon- it looks thrown in there. Originally, more of the ribbon showed through so it wasn't so bad but once I started sticking things down I guess I moved over too much. Still a cute color combo though!
The last one is for my sister. I had a pre-cut piece of Hibiscus and thought pink and black was perfect for Whitney. I used a flower center from Beautiful Blooms II and embossed it with black. Papertrey Ink came out with a new notebook paper die and I haven't received mine yet, so I winged it and made my own. I just border punched the top with my EK punch and then, with my Martha scoring board, I scored a line across the top. Super easy!
I made my June layout for Project 12, and of course, the lighting is terrible so the colors are all wonky. Oh well, you get the jist! I used Studio Calico's Continental kit for this one.
I have a layout to share tomorrow. I started it last night and have been trying a few new techniques that I'll show you. I'm using mist on this guy, and now I know why I don't use mist more- I've almost ruined my background paper and will have to try something to cover up my uh-ohs. Frustrating. =)
