Easel Cards - FotoBella

Hello Crafty Friends,
Here are my second projects of the month featuring the glorious Graphic 45 kit "Off to the Races." I hope you enjoy my two easel cards. I did one super feminine card with a touch of lace and the second one was more masculine by avoiding the rose designs. So it is good to note that with what may appear to be a feminine kit, it is possible to make manly projects from this kit as well.

Maculine Cards - FotoBella

Hey There,
If you know someone who is crazy for horses then this is the kit for you. This equestrian theme kit is cram packed with horses racing & jumping.  For the true equestrian lover, there are unlimited possibilities. I began by selecting a card from the ephemera pack. Everything coordinates so easily, it is nearly impossible to go wrong when selecting background papers and mattes. I added small embellishments by selecting ornate metal charms and coordinating chipboard accents.  Truly amazing! Let's go "Off to the Races!"  Find out all about my cards HERE.

If you prefer, you can downplay the horse theme a bit if you focus on the abundance of roses and the stunning woman adorned with incredible hats & attire.  Beautiful intricate patterns and elegantly dressed people intermix to the perfect proportion to create a luxurious feast for the eyes as only Graphic 45 can achieve. Stay tuned, later this month I'll be back to share my very feminine cards created from the Graphic 45 - Off to the Races kit.

A Closer Look:

  • thread
  • 3D foam tape
  • bracket die
  • die cutting machine
  • card base (5x7")

    Thanks for visiting today!

If the Broom Fits - Quick Ideas

I wanted to make a non-scary & non-creepy Halloween card. The "Witch Silhouette" image was the perfect answer.  I layer multiple stamps and then colored just the hat and broom as prominent features.  I hope you notice that my cute little gem covered spider dangles from a sparkly thread in the lower right corner.  So it can swing freely when the card is handled for an extra surprise.
This card is entered into the following CHALLENGES...

Witch Moon Card - Blank Page Muse

I just love silhouette forms and this witch is simply perfect!  I masked the moon, layered images, and created the sky by blending distress inks.  I think a mildly creepy moonlit night background was just what the sexy silhouette needed.  You will find the complete tutorial over on the Blank Page Muse Blog.
