You are awesome / You’re a star

Hey!

I seem to make an awful lot of goodbye cards recently. Not all of them make it to the blog cause I keep forgetting to take a photo of them, but today I want to show you two cards made for my  work colleagues who recently finished their contracts and left the company.

For the first card I used a piece of navy patterned paper which I darkened on the edges. I used Adirondack’s metallic paint in pearl to create the splotches. I added any star-resembling embellishments I could think of: sequins, pearls, rhinestones, wood veneer and silver embossed stars. I love the effect!

For the second card I created a watercolour background using Distress Markers on watercolour paper. I stamped the bicycle, covered the frame with Glossy Accents and added a couple of sequins for some shine.

Hey!

Today’s card was made a while ago but I didn’t have a chance to post it yet. It is a card for a friend, who recently moved to the other end of the world to start a whole new chapter in life. She took her dog with her, hence the little doggeh on the card :).

I stamped the sentiment using alphabet stamps and added some glitter on top. To create a background for the sentiment I used Distress Markers on watercolour paper. The embellishments I cut out mostly from patterned paper.
