Bouncing Brayer Lighthouse

I found a tutorial on the bouncing brayer technique on line and finally mastered it.  I saw it demonstrated years ago at an Angel Company convention but never got the hang of it.  I had lots of fun with this.  This is another of my February birthday cards for work.

Sunflower Birthday

No January birthday's at work so started on the February birthday cards.  This is one of the three cards.  I used a stamp from the Be Fabulous set from Red Rubber Designs, put various water color markers over the design, stamped it, cut it out and layered.  I thought it made a bright cheery card.  I would appreciate photography tips, the background is a white white, it is a bit dark out as we got about a 1/2" of snow but my pictures don't seem as good as others I see.  Any websites  or places for tips that anyone can offer?

CAS Background

This was a quick and easy card.  I stamped the background with Versamark until it was covered with my image, then I embossed with white embossing powder. I partially covered the background with  Memento Desert Sand ink, then daubered Memento's Rich Cocoa ink at the edge of the stems and leaves.  I stamped the main image in Rich Cocoa, mounted it all and now I just need to add a note and address my envelope! I like how this adds so much to the background without needing to embellish or match background papers. Of course there is always room to embellish!

Froggie - Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 30

This is a pre-colored Doodle Pantry image "Froggie" and it makes a quick and easy card.  I cut it out with my Quick Kutz Lacy Oval dye along with a scrap of green, used my Scor Pal for a quick square design on white cardstock, added a ribbon, and a Recollections butterfly brad, added some glitter with my Spica pens to the design and it is ready to go. About as CAS as it gets!  DPDC30

Reflection Card

This reflection card was such fun to do. I've done reflections using my stamp before but this is a different technique I saw on Heather Scott's blog, she has a short tutorial on how to do it.  I used some of my new stamping supplies I bought down in Kimswick, a Pebbles stamp set, a KaiserCraft paper pad, and a Quick Kutz Nesting Eyelet Squares (they were all 1/2 price so I have several new Quick Kuts Dies). I also made it a larger size so I am ahead one birthday card for the office, I make the cards for our monthly birthday celebrations.  It is a little challenging when you are used to A2 size but I love a challenge.

Wishing you all a healthy and Happy New Year filled with many blessings.
