I dug deep into the archives and found this gem of a card from 2013! I love the simple yet interesting design and that 'peekaboo' circle window is the coolest.

I have used 'Beetles & Bugs' for my card today. As you can see I CASE'd the card design. The sentiment "Everything will be OK" comes from the FREE Saleabration set 'Designer Tee'.  
These cute little bugs are very fun to stamp and play with you can stamp them in any colour you like!
 
These cute little bugs are very fun to play with you can stamp them in any colour you like! I stamped the Bugs twice, the second time on some scrap Whisper White then fussy cut their bodies & added a dimensional for a 3D feel. See how the Beetle Bug is lending a helping hand to his insect mate?

Carousel Just for You Card #gdp070

I have been making lots of cards today, including this Pool Party beauty. I like the simple layout and that DSP is just gorgeous! My colour inspiration came from this paper - Cupcakes & Carousels.
I tried to simulate the multicolours in the DSP images in my stamping. See here the circus tents.. I first stamped in So Saffron, then stamped off the edges onto some scrap paper by using the 'rock'n'roll' technique, then I 'rock'n'rolled' in Pool Party - not too bad huh? You can also achieve this look with Stampin' Write markers.
  I was inspired by the designers sketch over at the Global Design Project with challenge #GDP070

Bold Splash of Colour - Dragonfly card

Boy o boy - I had a lot of fun creating this today! I have been busy playing with watercolouring techniques and I came across a gorgeous card that had just the background I was looking to create. Paula Dobson created a beautiful card for the GDP using the 'Ink Refill Smooch Technique'. I created a similar backgroud - excepr there was no 'smooching' involved- hahah.
To create this background was use Watercolor paper, ink refills from the Regal Family and an Aqua painter. Brush water with the Aqua Painter all over your watercolor paper, then begin to add dros of ink from the Refill bottles, just one drop at a time. The colour will only run where there is water.
I love the way these colours work so well together.
