This week I was watching my dear Marina from Mavelu.com on her FB page, where she had live shows with crafting. She also put them on her webpage. She decided to go back to basics. She was also challenged us to do the same and create cards in same techniques like she does. So if you are bored in this days you can come here and craft with her and us. For some of the cards I am sure that you have all the staff at home. You will see sometimes you don’t need much to create beautiful cards.
First day we had to use only paper and some leftovers of the paper. I looked at the paper package of this nice Sweet little baby paper package from Mavelu. And on first page I noticed nice elephants which I can also use. I didn’t cut paper in the stripes, because I already had leftovers and because that, and even if they are not all the same size. Then I cut paper with elephants and blue it on other paper and with foam for a little more dimension glue on the base. I was thinking to add some stitches but I couldn’t do them straight, it went to much off. I think that it nice anyway.
On second day we needed to use only cutting dies. I cheated a little and use also some inks to color the monkey. I stick with the Sweet little baby papers and if the fist card was maybe more for boy now I wanted to create something for girls. And I came with this nice fun shaker card.
Third day we are supposed to use only paper and stamps. I love roses and of course need to do something with them. And because not so long ago I took class about layered stamping I decided to make background with pink roses. For some freshness I use green paper with white dots. And from the same set I also use the sentiment “Sanjaj! Kot da je vse mogoče.” (Dream! Like everything is possible.).
Fourth day was everything about rainbow. It spring and everything is becoming colorful and I make some flower power card in rainbow colors. Similar card I get once from Marina and I love it very very much.
And for the last day this week we have embossing techniques themed. I have some embossing folder form the begining of my crating path. At this eraly days I was using them a lot, they were not so expensive and with them you can do a lot. But then I forgot about them a little. Today i took this nice folder, which also have space for sentiment. I heat embossed the sentiment with black powder. I wanted the sentiment to stand out. Then I add some nice pink tulips and bow in green.
Most of the staff I use you can you get on the Mavelu.com. Marina is creating so nice goodies for crafting.
So I hope that look to the cards make your day just a little nicer. I am sure that you would send some card to someone to made their day. Which card would you send and to who?
Thank you for stopping by and see you next time.
