Llama just tell you that Llama's are lots of fun

I am currently designing new cards to sell in my etsy store as well as in the shops where I sell my cards around Australia. It has been so much fun getting organised and coming up with these new designs, it's funny how much more motivated one gets when in good heatlth.

I have always loved llamas and totally ecstatic that llama's are all the rage now, great when things you love start trending. This is a simple card featuring an Aztec background. The scarf on the the llama has been paperpieced to add some dimension to the card. I purchased the llama image from KennaSatoDesigns, such a great etsy shop with amazing images for sale.

What we all need, good luck and much fortune

When the new challenge was announced at CASology I just knew it was an opportunity to use this Lucky cat image from DapperBob that I absolutely love, the cat has been added to the card with dimensional foam to make the cat stand out. I added a chinese coin to the cat's necklace and then followed the shape of the coin for the background the cat is placed on. A simple fun card that can be used for a variety of occassions.

Something a little bit different

I decided to try my hand at very simple water colouring and did the background using my aqua textas. The sentiment was printed directly onto the cardstock after the water colour background was done, lastly I stuck on the paper tulips and twisted the stems so that the tulips are leaning forward. So much fun trying something new, I'm glad I gave this a go.

Hope everyone has had a good start to their week, my Monday went better than I expected so I'm happy. Today I am just sharing a simple card on which I paper pieced the head and tail of the fox. The fox is a such a great image that I purchased from KennaSatoDesigns and the trees are by the same designer. Make sure to check out this shop as there are so many great images at really good prices.

Sunday blogging is so much fun

I am having so much fun blogging again, it might take sometime for my blogging friends to realize that I am back but it will happen. This is a fun card that I made using a great image from Dorky Prints, a fantastic etsy shop with so many great images. The background circle  is a simple water scene and I have used my favorite paper piecing method to make the tail and hair stand out. There will be many more mermaid cards to come. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday xx

Everywhere I go these days I find cactus related items so I had to join in the fad and create a Cactus themed card. On this card I printed the Cactus image in a large size, the image has been purchased from KennaSatoDesigns and is available on Etsy. I paper pieced the cactus by cutting out sections of the cactus and creating a fold in the middle of each piece that has stuck to the original image. The sentiment has been done using Bleeding Cowboys font. I have left plenty of white space to make the cactus the focal point and to give the card a CAS look.

I know dreamcatchers have become so much part of popular culture these days but traditionally they have so much significance in Native American culture. A dreamcatcher is a handmade willow hoop, on which is woven a net or web. The dreamcatcher may also include sacred items such as certain feathers or beads. Traditionally they are often hung over cradles as protection.

On this card I have made the dreamcatcher the focal point of the card, the image has been designed by KennaSatoDesigns  and is available on Etsy. I have paper pieced some of the feathers to add dimension and movement. The background is a simple watercolour background and the sentiment Dream Big has been done using Bleeding Cowboys font. I have added a diamante to the center of the dreamcatcher.
