Shabby or decide

This one I really don't know which category fits. So I guess that for the moment I will make it a Classy & Elegant card. As predictable, I used BG design paper, this time I played with the Infuse Collection.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to visit my blog today to see the cards I have made lately. As always your visit and comments are deeply appreciated.


Another Birthday

One of my "Shabright" creations. I used BG paper Nook and Pantru collection, the stamps are from Stampinup. The ribbon is white seam binding tape dyed in red. The flower is handmade also dyed to match the ribbon.
Thanks for the visit!!

Classy and Elegant

This is my version of a classy and elegant card. Again, it's hybrid. I used BG digital paper from Scarlet Letter collection. I resized the papers and monograms to fit a 3X3 card and printed the different layers. Then I paper pieced the monograms and added diamond glaze to give then dimension and shine. The little flowers are hand made using Prima petals, they where yellow so I dye them in red.

Thanks for the visit!

Hi There... Graphic Style

Here is my version of a graphic style card. I think it has something of shabby because of the distress and glitter, but in all I find it goes more with the graphic group.

To make the card I used a Basic Grey digital paper and resized it to have all the gorgeous details in the borders. Then I added the digital stamps and printed on my cardstock. I painted the flowers using my Copics and then added son dimension with pabbles and glitter glue.

It's very simple, not my usual style but I guess I achieved the clean & graphic look with my usual distressed style.

Finished size is 3X3 .... hmm, I guess I love this card size LOL!

Thanks for the visit!!



I will have multiple posts today since I am submitting a few cards for the different card style challenges at the Moxie Fab Blog. I love this special issue because it has helped me to identified my card style. I have been making cards for a few years now and still have not defined my style. Well, I think that this process has help me determine that my dominant style is shabby with a twist of fun & cute. I may be wrong, or my style may develop a little more, but for now I have named my style the "Shabright Style".

Having said that, in the process of naming my own very special style, I made my version of each of the styles shown in the magazine. Here is my version of the fun & cute cards.

The first one is a hybrid one. I design it in Photoshop, resized the paper and the tag and printed it. I made the flower with felt and the base is a Prima flower.

Paper: June 09 digital collection Jessica Sprague
Flower: Hand made
Stamp: PTI Blooming Button Bits (leaves)
Finished size: 3 X 3

For this one I used an acetate piece to make a window in the card front. This way I was able to decorate both the outside and inside of the card.

Here is a close up of the button detail.

Finished size: 3X3
Stamps: PTI Chairished & Spots & Dots
