DGT – HB 7!

Another quick post with a couple of cards for this week’s CASology 160: Number. One of my nieces turns 7 this September.

I did some ink blending for the frame on this first monochromatic card.IMG_0289editedThis next card is very similar to the first. I used the rest of the ink blended paper for this second card.

IMG_0285editedThese cards were inspired by Gillian’s at CASology. Here’s her monochromatic loveliness.

I’m going to play this over at CASology’s Week 160: Number challenge.

SPL – HB 101!

Hi! I’m here with a wicked fast post. Mainers say “wicked” a lot. I’m a Mainer and I made the card in this post for another Mainer, so I thought that “wicked” would be an appropriate adjective for this short post. I’m going to play this card over at CASology’s 160: Number.IMG_0247editedI made this card for my husband’s grandfather. Yes! He does turn 101 in September!!! He’s still fit, plays golf, goes to Florida from Maine in the “Winta” and has an incredible mind. IMG_0244edited_edited-1His favorite color is purple.

Here’s one of Ashley’s lovely cards.

Here’s the one I made.

IMG_0271editedI used a stamp from PTI’s A Cheerful Heart sentiment stamp set, the cherries are from PTI’s A Second Helping of Sunshine and the striped paper is from the Clipsters kit.

I enjoy using this technique.

I have tried the technique in the past and have fun with it every time I use it. Here are some cards that I made a while back.
