Today’s card features many die cuts, bling and sponging. I die cut out two scrolls and then several different flower shapes. The flowers were sponged with ink to add depth. The background was created using steel wool and dipped into pink and green inks. This is a simple and easy technique to get your backgrounds looking like splatted ink.

Frolicking Frog

I love learning new techniques or revisiting old ones. Today's card is a called a Magic Card. This card is like a pocket and when you pull the tag the message/image appears. This was created using a retired SU Frolicking Frogs stamp set. The main image was colored with Copics: Frog (Y02, YG03, YG67, G21, g24, G28), Frog spots (RV23, RV19, RV14, RV04), the Mushroom (E13, E15, E18, B02, B05, B06). You can watch a video on how to create your own "Magic Card" here.

The Simple Life

Today's project is a simple but sweet Valentine's Day card. This card was created using a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 sheet of cardstock. That's right four cards out of an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock. I came across this card size after watching a video created by babytweetums. You can see the video here. I like the size of this card. What do you think?
