CardMaker and Technique Tuesday Summer Blog Hop!

To kick off the summer CardMaker and Technique Tuesday are hopping together today!

If you’ve come from Jaclyn Miller’s blog you are in the right place! If not head to the beginning of the hop at the CardMaker Blog.

Here is my card using Be Happy. Paper from The Paper Loft.

Now hop on over to Tanis Giesbrecht’s blog!


Happy Birthday

This is my card for the Mix-ablity Challenge on Splitcoast (MIX69) This week we were challenged to make a project using a faux tile technique.

I used the Birthday Boy image from Tiddly Inks for my card. Image was colored with Touch Twin markers.

I made the background by painting 3 colors of acrylic paint on my paper. After it dried completely I added strips if washi tape. Then I painted over the open spaces with white acrylic paint.

I made a white cardback and then used Sizzix 659202 Regal Labels Framelits to cut my card by cutting just below the fold.

I die cut my homemade background with a matching die.
