Birthday Message

I was inspired by the science/technology themed moodboard to include the typewriter and make a more masculine birthday card.  I love how the argyle looks over the subtle text background.

Funny Robot Card

In honor of "back to school" time let me present my cute robot card.  He looks like he is about to burst out and dance.  He is full of personality and I can't wait to use him again.

Transparent Card Front

I had forgotten about the technique of having a transparent card front. Now I'm inspired to try more of this style. It is fun to plan the layers.  Although, it does make it a bit tricky to sign the card. I stamped the sentiment and embossed it in gold.  To create the flowers, I stamped onto watercolor paper and painted them. I added gold micro beads to the front flower for more realistic dimension.

CAS Rainbow Cards - The Robin's Nest DT

Simple can be a very effective strategy.  I love the rainbow color order.  White space is always a challenge for me as I usually fill every part of a project with tons of layers. Here is a rare attempt to keep in clean & simple.  The full tutorial can be found HERE.  I hope you enjoy my CAS cards.

Dew Drops are transparent gems and will change color
depending on the color of the paper you attach them to.

Painting the Roses Red - The Robin's Nest DT

Well, the Queen of Hearts will be much happier now that they are painting all her white roses red.  I have to admit I'm not a big Alice in Wonderland fan and couldn't remember most of the details so I had to do a bit of online research.  I did have a wonderful time putting this card together and perfecting all the little details. The card suits were the final finishing touch and Dew Drops were perfect.

black ink pad
