baby duck

As you may already have noticed my style is fairly minimalist. I don’t like cluttered or fussy or over the top.

Here the background of this fairly large white card is just lifted by a few tiny peel of stars it makes the world of difference but is not intrusive.

The card itself is the Quickutz ducky cut is pale yellow and simply layered on pale blue the same pale yellow and pale blue again. The corners have been rounded using the Papermania round corner punch to give it a neater softer feel. The wing detail was cut in a slightly darker yellow and the eye filled in in black.

This was placed on the card using 3D foam and the card was finished using an appropriate baby peel of sticker.

thanks - reworking an idea

You may recall this Thanks card, well here is the same idea reworked in more summery colours.

I always find if I buy letter stickers I always run out of some letters and have half a sheet left of letters that never get used. So I purchased myself the Quickutz Sunshine Gift Set.

The papers were ‘Pretty Pink Stripes’ for the background and Bazzill in the following doodlebug colours: sunshine, bubblegum and lily white.

purple with love card

More doodlebug papers used here. Doodlebug is one of my favourite scrapbooking companies because everything is just so much fun.

The ‘Perfectly Perfect Asterisks’ paper was matted onto a card measuring 2 3/4” by 4 3/4”. 

‘With Love’ written in the discontinued Sue Dreamer Lavender alphabet stickers was placed on white Bazzill which was in turn layered on doodlebug Swimming pool Bazzill. This was placed centrally on the card using 3D foam.

The card was finished using small purple star gems from Papermania.

crazy hi!

Using the same doodlebug paper as used on the Thanks card, and with much the same idea, but a very different effect. Hi! was written using the now discontinued Sue Dreamer Lavender letter stickers onto a pale blue circle of card. This was then layered onto a card covered with the striped paper with a burst of individual strands of marabou feathers.
