Thinking of You

After battling migraines for the past week, I decided to take advance of my migraine free day and make a card.  I also decided to try a new technique as well that my secret sister sent me painters tape to try.  The technique turned out pretty well.  It didn't turn out the first time since the inks were too dark and I stamped the image first.  After a few adjustments, it came out great the second time.  Once I was done creating the background with the painters tape, I stamped the moose and the "Thinking of You" sentiment.  Overall, I love how this card turned out and I can't wait to make more cards using this technique.  At first, I thought the tape was going to be too wide for what I wanted, but it turned out perfect.  Until next time, happy carding everyone.

Easter Eggs

Since April 10th is soon approaching, I decided that I better get my packages for my secret sister/pals completed so I can put them in the mail next week.  I don't have any Easter stamps and I saw this awesome tutorial on how to make an Easter egg card on Stampin' Connection so I decided to finally make them today.  The cards are adorable and I hope my secret sister/pals like them.  I even made an extra one so I can send one to a friend that I haven't seen in a while.  Until next time, happy carding everyone!

Original card was created by France Martin and YouTube video was created by Maria Russell.
