caardvarks {hearts} challenge!



Here’s my entry for the caardvarks hearts challenge. I barely managed to post this in time for the challenge; life has been so busy. I wish there were 8 days in a week :) (of course, that implies it would be a 3 day weekend and not a 6 day work week).

  • Stamp: SU! Just for fun
  • Paper: Bazzill, Wasau
  • Silver cord, silver EP, heat gun, cuttlebug textiles embossing folder.

Faux silk technique and a manly card

This was my first attempt at the faux silk technique.

DSC01733 It was also  based on some sketch challenge but I forgot which one :(. For the paper piercing, I hand drew the design on a translucent paper, put it over the cardstock and pierced it over.

Stamps: Jolies Fleurs by LAD


Here’s my take on a manly card. Most  of my cards are very feminine so I wanted to make something manly. Does it look like it can be given to the men in our life? The outer black frame is popped on dimensionals and the stamped image is clear embossed. I used my gold pen to doodle here and there.
