Distressed background card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I have had a card in mind for some time now as my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy, but never gotten around to actually pull out my distress inks. I must get the new colors, I truly still am in love with them.

However, lately I have seen a few cards using the technique I had in mind and they are absolutely stunning. Mine is nowhere near as beautiful, so I'm glad I waited. Otherwise I would probably have abandon the idea.

I used two colors of distress ink. I had three in mind, but I just loved the evergreen bough and tumbled glass so well together, I just stuck with those. I aslo used watercolor cardstock, as I planned to spray the paper with shimmer mist. In the end it would probably have worked fine with regular cardstock as well, as I didn't need that much mist as I thought.

I embossed the sentiment with white superfine detail and I'm amazed with how crisp the small words came out.

All Lawn Fawn hearts card

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a super fun card to make. I rarely use hearts in my crafting. I'm just one of those, I guess... But I have a lot of heart stamps as my collection of Lawn Fawn is growing. I just never figured out what to do with them. Also, to me they all look the same...

But I was inspired by the wonderfully talented Jennifer McGuire and I just thought - that's what I'll do! You can see the video to my epiphany HERE.

And behold, when I got all my hearts gathered together - they are NOT the same :)

Can you see this for Valentine in pink and red :D

Mixing G45 collections always works

Hi everyone!

For my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy I just wanted to show you how simple it it to match different collections from Graphic 45.

There are lots of different collections in the store, as Kellie has been carring the brand for quite some time now :)

But you don't necessary need to choose your favorite COLLECTION, but rather the color palette you favor. Do you prefer the light or the dark?

Can you guess how many collections there is in my card?

Five! Can you believe it?
Place in time, baby 2 bride deluxe, little darlings, once upon a time and le romantique.
A great thing with Graphic 45 papers are that even though one side has the most gorgeous scene and you hate to cut it apart, the B-side usually is a really versitile pattern that can be used for a number of occations. You might not see it right away. I had to pick all my collections apart and arrange them by color rather then by theme and behold - a whole new world of G45 opened up!

So, I dare you...
What can you put together - LOL!
