I'm going overseas to visit my relatives in August, and I wanted to bring some cards over for them. I wasn't sure what to write (they're not sick, it's not their birthday, and I'm not thanking them for anything, so I just decided not to have a message, and handwrite a note inside instead.

I did clear emboss resist with broken china distress ink.

I added lots of diamond stickles!
By the way, i named the post overseas because the card is blue... and it's for overseas relatives..... :) me and my bad jokes. *sigh*

one of a kind...

Hi! I made a really different card the other day, and I'm really excited to share! The sentiment isn't one of a kind, but I thought that would be a nice name for the card because of the rose. Without further ado:
I used broken china distress ink as the background, and spritzed it with water to get this spotty effect.

I stamped the sentiment "thinking of you" on the centerpiece cardstock multiple times with white ink so it would show up, but it wouldn't be too obvious.
Hope you enjoy! As always, leave any questions in the comments below!

Happy Birthday!

New card today! I was playing around with colors and decided to do purple and green. I pretty happy with the way it turned out. I also experimented with distress inks and water on some other cards I'll show later.
The green and purple complement each other well, especially when there is more of one color than the other. The prima rose ties it all together by having purple petals, green leaves, and gold accents!

I'm so excited! I now have a set of drawers just for crafting! Plus, they're colorful too! It looks something like this:
Have a fantastic weekend!
