CARDS, Flourishes, Timeless Tuesdays Challenge

Sweet Friend

Let me share a few of my favourite things…

CAS CARDS– clean and simple designs!

RIBBON–  Ribbon can add style to any card! Bows can be formal, prim and proper, whimsical, tied up tight, or free and flowing; there is a ribbon for every design.

STAMPS– I enjoy many styles of stamps, but one of my absolute favourites and go to styles is FLOURISHES!  Easy to color and shade because of their tremendous attention to detail and lines…always beautiful and original…I love ’em!!

TEXTURED CARDSTOCK– Texture adds richness and depth to your designs, so when I’m making a card with limited elements I like to let the card stock shine! If I want super texture, I emboss! (Swiss dots is still my favourite cuttlebug folder)

COPICS–  Once I decided to give these a try, I could not go back to anything else.  Other markers are not the same, if you enjoy coloring…indulge…they’re worth it!!

UNEXPECTED and INEXPENSIVE elements- On the card below I added a cut dollar store  paper doily as an accent.  I saved $ for more Copics!

COLOR –  Rich brown, deep red and bright white is definitely a favourite combination!  A few other cool combos are…blue, brown and white, pink and grey,  black and white,  cream and pink,  kraft, brown and red,  and brilliant white on white with lots of embossing of course!

Flourishes blog hop and 100th challenge celebration is all about favourites!  But you figured that out already didn’t you!?
